Summoner Spells Back to Top

Being one of the tallest champions to ever exist, Aurelion Sol is a rare champion that not many players tend to play which is sad. He is quite fun, has a lot of dialogue, a great lore, AND HE IS A DAMN SPACE DRAGON! Why wouldn't you try him?


And by the way, thank you all for 24K views !!! Welcome to my guide, dear comrade. Take a glass of wine and enjoy my tips made especially for you, Aurelion Sol players !



14.png Could be one of the worst spells to take with 136.png

You are already dealing some nice damages and getting kills isn't Aurelion main goal because you're not an assassin like Zed with his main objective being to take you down again and again.You can only take this spell against champions like 50.png 8.png who is a pain in the ass because of their regen!


4.png Best spell in da game !  This will, of course, allow you to escape a difficult situation you're in by jumping through a wall, for example. 

3.png Take this against champions like 238.png91.png84.png55.png105.png. It's really great, trust me.

21.pngIt can be good against burst champs like 45.png or any others mage who get a single burst until they can strike again. Stronger then heal in midgame/lategame, comparing it to 3.pngit's reducing the damages but the cast range is sometimes too close to reaching your opponent. The barrier can save you if you're scared to be dive under-tower.


1.png Update: If you feel like a REAL WARRIOR. Extremely great for skilled players but can be your downfall if you're not careful enough. It allows you to escape many critical situations but can be near useless if you don't press it at the right moment.

11.png NEW SECTION IS COMING OUT BABY !

17.png13.png2.png RIP IN PEPPERONIES (It's a joke, get it? Right, i'm taking the door.)

New Runes Back to Top

With Aurelion Sol, mobility is one his main goal and the new runes are quite awesome for that. You can try different things then what I'm putting here, but do care about the fact that Aurelion Sol in early won't do a lot and you need a great sustain in order to pass through the mid-game without many scratches!


With these runes, you're able to have a decent sustain thanks to the biscuit, and also some movement speed, CDR and all of the mages stuff our dear Aurelion need.

Masteries Back to Top

About the Ferocity Tree : 


WE-ARE-MAGE, SORCERY > FURY.


Feast can really help you sustain in the lane while the double edge is a bad mastery for you, same goes for expose weakness.


Vampirism can be a good choice with your AA and spell who can heal you constantly. However, you can take Natural Talent if you feel like you need more damages!


You are not really a champion base on early game, so oppressor will be god damn strong with your 3116.png


About the Cunning Tree :


You don't need more speed, your aurelionsolE.png already gave you the speed you needed to travel across the land of the summoners rift, my dear trainer. 


Savagery will help you to last hit because of the early game of Aurelion which is really hard but you will get used to it.


Secret stash is really strong now as you are not an assassin because you deal damages base on time, not instantly.


Meditation will give you mana regenerations, in some builds that I will present to you it will be needed in order to survive at some matchup. Because of one of his previous nerf, this mastery is almost a must now.


Bandit can be a good choice if you want some money early on.


You don't really depend on CDR so getting Precision will give you more magic penetration.


Thunderlord is one of the best options because of your Z. Yes, each ballhit add one more stack.

You're not playing Aurelion Sol tank, aren't you ?!

Since the nerf of the Q you don't really benefit with upgrading it first and it cannot be used when an opponent is close to you so upgrading your Z will increase your ability to farm and help you to harass him. Watch him suffer with the thunderl... Oh wait, this is now in the past.

UPTADE: Z received a nerf in the early game but my skill orders won't change. The Z will cost less mana in the maximum level compared to before, which mean your lane phase will be more difficult and your roaming around level 8 will be easier. An eye for an eye!




Here is a quick explanation about all of the abilities of Aurelion



aurelionsolpassive.png : During the early game, be careful about this. It sometimes can make you lose some of you farms. IT HIS DISABLE WHEN YOU USE aurelionsolE.png

The passive is also inactivated when Aurelion got stunned, silence, root....
aurelionsolQ.png : Use it when you need to escape or chase someone, the more it travels the biggest the projectile get.
aurelionsolW.png : Probably one of the most powerful Aurelion spell. You can poke your enemy, farm with it or escape/ slow your opponents when you got your 3116.png
aurelionsolE.png : Your escape or engaging tool and what makes you so damn fast. Be careful as you can get attack while flying and the cooldown of this ability is realllllly long ! Use it to ROAM and prepare your Q, or escape IF YOU ARE SURE TO DON'T TAKE DAMAGE WHILE CASTING IT (It's like escaping with 163.png taliyahR.png,you know.)
aurelionsolR.png : Finisher,Long Range, Slow, Big damage in a Teamfight, Close enemies while get push away from you. Try to touch a maximum enemies in a teamfight to deal the maximum damage possible by applying a great slow on them ! Also, the cast is really fast so don't be scare to use it again and again. (Don't abuse it though !)
aurelionsolQ.png+aurelionsolE.png Is one of the most common combo to use with Aurelion, the projectile while get so damn giant that it can have a high chance to touch and stun your opponent(s).













Items Back to Top

Starting Items

    Basic start.
    Assasins like Zed,Talon
    If you need more poke and sustain

Core Items

    They are the main core of Aurelion Sol build. ROA is one of the best item along the Rylai which work really great along Aurelion.
    They are strong on Aurelion . Rabadon can give you strong damages and the zhonya protect you and must be rush against assassins.Here's a tip : Your Z still work while the zhonya is active !
    It can seems weird,but those boots are really good,with your E you gain a insane movement speed and to proc your Z + your slow with Rylai movement speed is necessary.
    You have to buy it if you're facing an assassin.
    Need more HP and Magic Pen? Go for it!

Situational Items

    Good to rush agaisnt champion like Veigar
    The choice is simple. You take sorcerer if the enemies team stack MR and mercury if they CC you hard.
    With the new 10% Summoners spells CD it can be a great item if you need CDR.

Please read the bubbles !

VS

Ahri

Medium

Buying the normal patch 3027.png3116.png

Skill matchup imo, you two got a stun but you got more range than here. She can gain movespeed with her ahriorbofdeception.png so be careful about it. The kiss is predictable in some case so be aware.

VS

Akali

Hard

Easy for you until she reaches akalishadowdance.png...Buy 2043.png for her akalismokebomb.png


It's not an easy matchup at all and even one of the worst pick you can face on. The only phase that you can hold easily is before level 6.

VS

Annie

Easy

All abilities of Aurelion Sol outrange Annie pretty easily, and when you will get your core items she can't really OS you since you will have many HP, thus feeding her shouldn't be your worries still you can survive quite well. BUT STILL, be aware of her stun from her passive (you see a red~white circle around annie when her stun is ready) because she can 4.png +infernalguardian.png

with the help of her jungle, so be really careful about it.

VS

Azir

Medium

Skill matchup! Like I always said, the jungle and your skillcap while be doing the matchup. 


Azir most problem when you're facing him is his azirqwrapper.png+azirewrapper.png+azirr.png combo that can put you really bad when doing correctly. The main worries you should have against him is lategame where he is one of the best if fed correctly.


VS

Ekko

Medium

Ekko is tricky: He can dodge your aurelionsolQ.png with ekkoE.png and slow you. But you still got a nice range to harass him andaurelionsolW.png will scale better than him. Don't give up! match your orbs toward his body and keep trace of his ghost when he reached level 6.

VS

Fizz

Hard

One of the hardest matchup for Aurelion.

His  fizzjump.png allow him to reach you or dodge your  aurelionsolQ.png easily, and if you try to escape he will throw a fizzr.png  at you and you can't do a lot of things apart from flashing away, which isn't the wisest idea!

VS

Gangplank

Medium

Those days i don't see 41.png mid so much, but since I main him during the past I can give you some tips on how to counter him.


Basically, with the new masteries 41.png will harass you with his Q, gaining 10 gold everytime he hit you. The key about here is to let 41.png push, because you can poke him pretty easily with Aurelion, and he will miss farm because 41.png can't really farm with his barrels during the early phase. But still be careful about the barrels, and count how much he uses it: 41.png receive a nerf about his barrels, now he can only stock 3 at once so remember it because they take some time until coming back.

I think his powerspike his when he get 3057.png + LVL 7,his barrels are now faster to hit you and he can start to be a threat. Remember : 41.png IS NEVER USELESS IN A GAME. So try to push him down before he became a threat, GP his not really strong on earlygame like 45.png which needs strong setup.

VS

Heimerdinger

Easy

VS

LeBlanc

Hard

I make it hard because if you learn this guide you're probably a beginner at 136.png

You can win this matchup is you are better,so yeah,it's a skill matchup but 7.png will have a slight advantage in lane.If you get too much harass by here call your jungle if possible.
The normal path should be okay but if you want to feel safer you can buy 3157.png before3116.png

VS

Lissandra

Medium

VS

Lulu

Medium

I hate this matchup ! She can slow you,turn you on animal and remove all of your damage and got a lulur.png that can save her,and even her teammates ! A strong pick in a 5v5 comp,but she still can be gank easily.

VS

Lux

Hard

What a HORRIBLE NIGHTMARE. Lux got the same ult as you: luxmalicecannon.png Big damage, and a range longer than you!

All of her abilities outrange you, BUT STILL.You can win the matchup if she miss her luxlightbinding.pngwhile trying to dodge her luxlightstrikekugel.png . She's pretty easy to play which make her a threat in almost any levels, but dodging the cage is one of your priority unless you don't care to received her ultimate and died right after.

VS

Pantheon

Hard

Outch,80.png mid can be a thing.He will just harass you with his pantheon_throw.png,and you can't do nothing agaisnt him until you hit the midgame.He can dodge your aurelionsolQ.png when he jump on you.But don't worry,you will scale better then him just don't let him snowball and always say SS before he pantheon_grandskyfall_jump.pngand destroy your team.

VS

Varus

Medium

Rare,but still exist.Well basically the key of this matchup his to try to dodge varusq.png and varusr.png,since varus has no escape tell your jungle to gank you and let him push.

VS

Veigar

Easy

Some people could find it weird,but yes,Veigar is and easy matchup for you. You can poke him easily on the lane phase with your aurelionsolW.png. The only fact to know is that is ultimate is not the same as before ! It deal more damage based on your missing HP, and not your AP ! You can now buy the normal path, and buy 3001.png if you want to feel safer. And here a quick tip : when you use 3157.png when he veigarprimordialburst.png, the ult goes off without taking any damage :).


-Call for a jungle gank as soon as possible.Veigar need to be takedown early.

VS

Viktor

Medium

VS

Yasuo

Medium

Yasuo got the earlygame,but you should scale better in late.

Buying The normal path : 3027.png >3116.png then it depend on the composition of your opponent team.

The only bad things against him is that maxing aurelionsolQ.png is useless since his dash allow him to dodge easily your Q. His wall don't block your aurelionsolW.png and aurelionsolR.png, so don't be scared about it.

-Call for a jungle gank early, Yasuo is and easy target around those low levels.

VS

Zed

Hard

He just zedR.png you, the end .No seriously,rush the Zhonya then buy your core items 3027.png3116.png


-Bait his zedW.png before your jungle come,he will have 0 escape.

VS

Zoe

Hard

I honestly don't know! I didn't have this matchup with any champions before, so I can't help you there.


However, I saw that she could escape, stun but also have in the top of that quite the range with her spells. In my opinion, this matchup will be hard for Aurelion Sol because throwing his balls against a moving target is one of the hardest things to do.

About Aurelion at Toplane Back to Top

I have seen some 136.png at toplane during the past, what can i say?It can be viable since you got your Z to poke your opponents easily at a long range, but agaisnt champions like 111.png48.png122.png it's really difficult to do something : they got slow, CC, that something 136.pngcan't hold on and it will nullify your usefully which is poking. It's a risky pick and if you get camped, your game will probably be lost.That why you ALWAYS need 2043.png. With all the pick possible at toplane, for me Aurelion top is soso but viable depending on the pick you're facing. Only trained Aurelion sol players may have a great chance at succeeding, but if you're still in training prefer the midlane for you.

The Key Of Positionning Back to Top

Stay behind frontline,and let them engage for you.AND THEN,use your Z to proc a maximum damage possible while our tank peel you.That the best situation but sometimes it's more difficult(for exemple 107.png238.png84.png...)getting focus hard can be a pain but you get something really good to help you : 

3157.png : Removing a ultimate like 45.png,115.png is so much great ! Hope our team can help you while you are invulnerable.Yeah,Zhonya is the king of tempo for mage !

aurelionsolR.png : "The Key Of Positionning" is right here : this spell allow you to remove EVERYONE in front of you,giving you a new chance to be in a great positionning again.
