Introduction

It's a bird, it's a plane, it's a dragon that thinks really highly of himself. Aurelion Sol is a zone control mage with the potential to be a powerful roaming champion with his "Comet of Legend"ability and his potential to wreak havoc with his passive "Center of the Universe." A good Aurelion Sol will spend his time building items that increase health and AP, so they can skirt around the teamfights later in the game, killing people with their stars, and unleashing a powerful Voice of Light when the time is right and even landing crucial Starsurge stuns.

Abilities


Passive – Adrenaline Rush

Passive - Center of the Universe

Aurelion Sol is constantly orbited by three Stars, and beyond them exists an Outer Limit affecting his damaging abilities. Ability-inhibiting crowd control disables Center of the Universe. The stars deal magic damage and apply spell effects to enemies that come in contact with them, executing minions below 25 health.

Q – Infected Cleaver

Q – Starsurge 

Aurelion Sol fires the core of a newborn star in the target direction, which expands as long as it remains within the Outer Limit and grants him bonus movement speed. Upon traveling beyond the Outer Limit or reactivating Starsurge, the core detonates, dealing magic damage to all enemies caught within and stunning them.

W – Burning Agony (Toggle)

W – Celestial Expansion

PASSIVE: The Center of the Stars' base damage is increased.

TOGGLE: Aurelion Sol Celestial Expansion 2 pushes his Center of the Stars out to the Outer Limit and increases their damage by 50%.

E – Masochism

E – Comet of Legend

PASSIVE: Aurelion Sol builds up bonus movement speed when moving inthe same direction, up to a maximum. He looses the bonus movement speed when he turns.

ACTIVE: Aurelion Sol pulls in his Center of the Stars and takes flight in the chosen direction,gaining unobstructed sight and ignoring terrain and unit collision. Aurelion Sol can also be seen regardless of obstructions.Performing any action (excluding Starsurge) or taking damage from champions or turrets will end Comet of Legend early.

R – Sadism

R – Voice of Light

Aurelion Sol exhales a wave of starfire in a line, dealing magic damage to allenemies hit, slowing for 2 seconds and knocking targets back to the Outer Limit if they are within.

Champions That Counter Aurelion Sol


LANE DOMINANCE

Zed Veigar Counter Champion

Zed

Zed can get on him with Living Shadow and Deathmark, and forces him to use his Voice of Light defensively. Zed also forces Aurelion Sol to build Zhonyas first to counter his ultimate, andmight even cause some to take exhaust.

Fizz Veigar Counter Champion

Fizz

Playful/Trickster makes Aurelion Sol hate everything, so does Urchin Strike. At level 6, Fizz will just kill him if he lands the Shark, and there really isn't anything ASol can do about it except pray that for some reason Fizz disconnects mid combo.

Trundle Dr Mundo  Counter Champion

Lux

Take that cosmic dragon! A mage that can beat you! Lux has a longer rang and a similar ult. She doesn't ever have to stand in his stars and can set up ganks on him easily. She's a nightmare for him, and he doesn't want to be stuck in a 1v1 lane against her.

Akali Counter Tips 4

Akali

Hit 6, Combo him, Voice of Light, Jump to him again, he's dead. You're everything he hatesabout League of Legends, not only that, but because this matchup is so free for you, you'll probably just carry the whole game.
