PROS AND CONS Back to Top

PROS:
- ONCE YOU MASTER APHELIOUS, HE IS ONE OF THE BEST ADC'S IN THE GAME



CONS:
- LVL 1 APHELIOS HAS NO ABILITIES, JUST AUTO-ATTACKS
- VERY BAD EARLY GAME
- VERY HARD TO MASTER
- NO GOOD ESCAPE
PASSIVE (AA) Back to Top
The Hitman and the Seer;
Aphelios has access to an arsenal of 5 Moonstone Weapons, created by his sister Alune. He equips two weapons at any one time, one as his main weapon and one as his off-hand. Each weapon has a unique basic attack and passive effect.
Aphelios begins the game with Calibrum as his main weapon and Severum in his off-hand, with Gravitum, Infernum and Crescendum queued in reserve. The queue order can be rearranged based on weapon usage.
Weapons spawn with 50 Moonlight for ammunition, which is consumed on basic attacks or to cast his Q abilities. Abilities that cause Aphelios to attack do not cost additional Moonlight on top of their ability cost. Once his main weapon is exhausted of Moonlight, it is moved to the end of the queue and Aphelios equips the next available weapon from his reserve.
Aphelios cannot improve his abilities with skill points. He starts the game with Phase and gains access to Q abilities at level 2. He gains access to Moonlight Vigil at level 6, which improves automatically at levels 11 and 16. Instead, Aphelios may spend his skill points to gain either 4 / 8 / 12 / 16 / 20 / 24 bonus attack damage, 6 / 12 / 18 / 24 / 30 / 36% bonus attack speed or 3 / 6 / 9 / 12 / 15 / 18 lethality.

Calibrum, the Sniper Rifle;
Aphelios gains 100 bonus range while Calibrum is his main weapon. Each attack made by Aphelios will consume 1 Moonlight per attack.
Enemies damaged by Calibrum via an ability are marked for 4.5 seconds, revealing them for the duration. Aphelios's next basic attack against a marked target uses the current off-hand weapon and gains 1800 range.
This attack will consume all marks, dealing 15 (+0.2 per bonus attack damage) bonus physical damage per mark to the initial target (at level 1 / 3 / 5 / 7 / 9). If Calibrum is the current off-hand weapon, the empowered attack uses the main weapon instead.
When Calibrum is assigned, Aphelios can use Moonshot.

Severum, the Scythe Pistol;
Basic attacks with Severum don't use projectiles. Each attack made by Aphelios will consume 1 Moonlight per attack.
Severum's attacks heal him for 3−20% of damage dealt (depending on level).
Healing from Severum in excess of Aphelios' maximum health is converted into a shield that absorbs up to 10−140 (+6% of maximum health) damage (depending on level) and lasts for up to 30 seconds.
When Severum is assigned, Aphelios can use Onslaught.

Gravitum, the Gravity Cannon;
Gravitum applies a 30% slow that decays over 3.5 seconds. Each attack made by Aphelios will consume 1 Moonlight per attack.
When Gravitum is assigned, Aphelios can use Binding Eclipse.

Infernum, the Flamethrower;
Infernum shoots a firebolt at the target enemy unit, dealing physical damage to all enemies it passes through. Upon reaching the primary target, the firebolt splits into a cone with 4 missiles behind it that deals physical damage to enemies. The firebolt deals 110% physical damage to the primary target and 75 / 100% of that damage to secondary targets (depending on level), reduced to 23 / 30% damage against minions (depending on level). Each attack made by Aphelios will consume 1 Moonlight per attack.
Critical strikes spray 6 missiles in a 50% wider cone that deals critical damage.
When Infernum is assigned, Aphelios can use Duskwave.

Crescendum, the Chakram;
Basic attacks with Crescendum hurl the blade at the target, which lingers for 0.25 seconds before homing back to Aphelios. He is unable to declare basic attacks until he retrieves Crescendum, but the attack timer is reset once caught. Each attack made by Aphelios will consume 1 Moonlight per attack.
Whenever Aphelios casts an ability that would require him to throw Crescendum, he instead throws a spectral Chakram at his target that similarly returns to him. Aphelios accumulates the Chakrams he catches, up to 20, which last for 5 seconds or until Crescendum is out of Moonlight. Attacks against champions will refresh the lifespan on Chakrams.
Basic attacks with Crescendum hurl all temporary Chakrams at his target, dealing 0-164% of Aphelios' attack damage as bonus physical damage which depends on the number of Chakrams hurled, this can go up to a maximum of 130-223% total attack damage. The bonus damage from Chakrams can critically strike.
When Crescendum is assigned, Aphelios can use Sentry.
