Counter Tips to Beat Aurelion Sol
The Star Forger
Aurelion Sol is played in the Mid Lane
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.
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 – 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 – 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 – 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 – 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.
