MID/ADC Aphelios: Most in-depth guide you'll see

By lessbedone
Why play Aphelios?

Welcome to my Aphelios Mid/ADC guide!

Im here to lend you a hand in mastering one of the most interesting, powerfull and most powerfull ADCs in League.

You are probably asking, is it worth it to main a 45%WR (patch 10.17)ADC with tons of hate from the league community? Well, let me be honest here, maining Aphelios is like walking on thin ice- Riot fails to understand that the champion(or atleast ADC) with probably the biggest skill ceiling will be abused in pro-play. Well, I mean, you too, can abuse that after getting a solid 50 games and core understanding of the champion. You can check out the runes, builds or you can read this pretty boring guide and get the most that i can give you.

What to expect from Aphelios?

Aphelios will underperform most of the time from other ADCs, but will overpower them in other cases.

Aphelios is pretty much THE most unique ADC in the game. Yes, he doesn't have a hybrid build, nor does he build Trinity and Iceborn Gauntlet, he doesnt get 1344 damage per shot, he doesnt have 3000 units ult range or even an AOE global. What does he have however? Well, glad you asked.

5 autos, 5 qs, 5 ults and a passive longer than a rant in r/LeagueOgLegends

Oh, well, mr author, isnt that overloaded? Well yes, but actually, YES. APHELIOS WAS MADE TO BE OVERLOADED. A good Aphelios will use the whole of his kit, and make the enemy ADC cry.

Ok, lets get back to the headline.

As I said, moon man has 5 guns, 5 abilities and 5 ults. Thus, making his game diffrent every so often. He is pretty hard to understand, but harder to master. Before you go to buy him, clear some points first.

Do you want a normal, not-so hard ADC? Do you want consistency? Do you want a mobile marksman? Do you want a non-team reliant champion (in teamfights)? Well, sorry,Aphelios isn't for you. Do you want a high-damage, team-clutching, insane-utility marksman? Well, then Aphelios IS for you.

Lets start of with Moonman's kit.

Simply said, Aphelios' passive has 2 parts- the Kit itself and His by-level damage, dps and lethality. Essentialy, his overall kit is explained below, in all of his abilities.
Calibrum is a Long-range Sniper rifle. While in main-hand, it gains bonus range. It's great for poking and keeping general distance between you and your oponent. Rangewise, Calibrum shares auto-range with
