In this League of Legends: Wild Rift Aurelion Sol guide you'll find everything you need to know about the champion, from his skills and how to allocate them to his build, skill combo, and runes. Here is what you will find in the Aurelion Sol guide below:

Aurelion Sol, or the Star Forger, is a mighty champion with a playstyle that doesn't resemble any other champion we've covered. He is a powerful Mage with the ability to bend stars, fly through the terrain, and snipe enemies with comets and other celestial objects (pretty much).

Although he's not easy to play, he is extremely rewarding once you master him, not only in terms of carry-potential but also because it's super fun!

In Wild Rift Aurelion Sol is not a champion for complete beginners, so I strongly advise you to learn the basic game mechanics and how to farm properly before you take him into your ranked games. Unlike the other champions currently available in Wild Rift, Aurelion Sol doesn't even have to auto-attack a minion to kill it. His Passive skill will do that for you - the only thing you must mind at all times is his positioning.

Starsurge (Skill 1)

Aurelion Sol projects a blast of pure starfire, damaging and slowing all enemies caught in it and knocking nearby enemies back to a safer distance.

How to combo as Aurelion Sol

Although Aurelion Sol has some quite basic mechanics, they are the bread and butter to his kit. They are simple, yet extremely effective, which bodes well given the (fairly) complicated mechanics he features by default.

- Skill 1 -> Skill 2

This combo relies on you landing a stun on your opponent with your Skill 1. Once they're stunned, you can cast Skill 2 for some damage.

- Skill 1 -> Skill 4 (ultimate) or Skill 4 (ultimate) -> Skill 1

This depends entirely on the situation, but it's fairly easy to pull off once you get a stun. It's a pretty burst-y combo, so it's especially good during team fights (you could show from behind a wall and take enemies by surprise Skill 3 -> Skill 1 -> Skill 4).

- Skill 2 -> Flash

This is a pretty tricky one because it relies on you pulling off a lot of damage with your orbs, and engaging on your opponent once one of the orbs hit to quickly proc the second (and probably third) one. You can also follow with auto-attacks.

- Skill 3 -> Skill 1

This is a typical combo that will help you pass through walls, make getting to lane a lot easier, and will work wonders when you're ganking other lanes (especially if you start casting it from the place they'd least expect you to pop out of).

- Flash (behind the opponent) -> Skill 4 (ultimate) -> Skill 1 -> Skill 2

This combo will knock the opponent back towards your team, but it is quite difficult to pull off. Also, you should be prepared to use your Stasis because chances are you'll be diving into the enemy team.

In what order to level up the skills?

On Aurelion Sol, you want to max out your Skill 2 first, then Skill 1, and finally your Skill 3.

  • Level 1: Skill 2
  • Level 2: Skill 3
  • Level 3: Skill 1 
  • Level 4: Skill 2
  • Level 5: Skill 4
  • Level 6: Skill 2
  • Level 7: Skill 2

Keep leveling Skill 2 until it's maxed, then focus on Skill 1, and lastly on Skill 3. Of course, whenever you can, you want to add 1 point into your Skill 4 (ultimate).

The best summoner spells

Ignite: Ignites target enemy champion, dealing 60-410 true damage (based on level) over 5 seconds and inflicting them with Grievous Wounds. (Grievous Wounds reduces healing effects by 50%).

Flash: Teleport a short distance forward or towards the aimed direction.

Wild Rift Aurelion Sol - The best items

item build

For Aurelion Sol, you can go one of two ways - either magic damage + tanky, or full damage. He scales very well into the endgame, so Rod of Ages is an ideal item for him. However, if you want a more bursty build, you can go for Awakened Soulstealer and Infinity Orb instead of Liandry's Torment and Rylai's Crystal Scepter

Boots Ionian Stasis is one of the best picks for Aurelion Sol since he is very immobile while he's laning and during the end-game team fights.  Ionian Shadows is a good alternative, which can slow down enemies and make it easier to land your skills.
