After teasing us with sneak peek videos last week, the new champion about to arrive in the Summoner’s Rift has finally been revealed. Aurelion Sol, the Star Forger, possessed the mythical feeling that we felt with champions like Azir, Xerath, Hecarim, Thresh and Kindred–a new champion that will bring a whole excitement when playing League of Legends in powerful gaming PC. It was also confirmed by Riot that Aurelion Sol is the replacement champion for the long-delayed champion known as Aoi Shin which ideas were first revealed in 2013. However, Aoi Shin didn’t have a place in the League of Legends’ lore which led to Riot’s decision of canceling the champion. Aurelion Sol, on the other hand, was developed with the right skill kit and lore concept to enter the Rift.
Arriving with the lore rework of Mt. Targon champions such as Pantheon, Leona and Diana, Aurelion Sol is a medium range mage that will bring the whole celestial body along with him that will deal devastating area of damage effect to his opponents.
According to RIOT’s lore entry for this new champion, Aurelion Sol is a majestic entity that has graced the vast emptiness of the cosmos. However, upon the behest of a space-faring empire, he is forced to wield his celestial powers in their service. With the desire to return in his star forging ways and attain back his freedom, Aurelion Sol will drag down the stars from the sky and wipe out anything that stand on his way.
Here are Aurelion Sol’s abilities:
● PASSIVE: CENTER OF THE UNIVERSE
Three stars constantly orbits around Aurelion Sol. These stars deal damage and apply spell effects to any enemy it touches.
● Q: STARSURGE
Aurelion Sol fires the core of a newborn star on his target that explodes and deal damage and stunning all nearby enemies upon reactivation or once it travels beyond his star’ maximum orbital range. Aurelion Sol can travel alongside Starsurge, which he nurtures and grow in size thus growing the area it damages and stuns as well.
● W: CELESTIAL EXPANSION
When executed this skill causes his starts out of the outer ring which increases its power and damage. It costs mana to cast and can drain mana every time the skill is toggled on.
● E: COMET OF LEGEND
Its passive allows Aurelion Sol to build increasing movement speed which lets him travel continuously in the same direction, but loses speed on sharp turns. The speed that is lost is stored away on his Escape Velocity stacks which are lost entirely when he takes damage from an enemy. When activated, it allows Aurelion Sol to maxes his Escape Velocity and activates his Comet of Legend that pulls his orbiting stars and allows him to take flight, traversing over terrain for a long distance. However, he cannot turn back direction once it is set and damage from enemy can disturb his flight and will bring him back to earth which his stars once restored.
● R: VOICE OF LIGHT
Aurelion Sol blasts out a strong and long wave of starfire in its target direction, causing damage and slows all struck enemies. Any enemies nearby caught in the same blast are knocked back.
