Aurelion Sol once graced the vast emptiness of the cosmos with celestial wonders of his own devising. Aurelion Sol is a roaming mid laner who can quickly clear his lane then effectively roam and gank other lanes and create extreme map pressure for his team.

Aurelion Sol Wild Rift Build Recommendation

Here are Item Build Recommendations that works on this champion and which are the best build for Aurelion Sol Wild Rift in this patch.

The Legendary Dragon

Rod of Ages Liandry’s Torment Boots of Mana Rabadon’s Deathcap Rylai’s Crystal Scepter Infinity Orb

This is the standard build for Aurelion Sol Wild Rift which is a balance of survivability and utility because Aurelion Sol wants to deal consistent DPS with his stars.

  •  Rod of Ages – This item is a perfect balance of HP, AP, and Mana. It also grants an additional stat bonus that increases over time plus it also has a small sustain bonus when using mana and being damaged as well.
  •  Boots of Swiftness – Aurelion Sol needs superior positioning in order to consistently deal damage and more movement speed helps that case. Upgrade with the Stasis Enchant to counter burst damage champions or upgrade with the Quicksilver Enchant to counter hard crowd controls.
  •  Liandry’s Torment – Makes your ability damage deal percentage of HP damage. This synergizes well with Aurelion Sol’s kit because he constantly deals AoE magic damage.
  •  Rabadon’s Deathcap – Grants the highest amount of AP stat so you’ll gain a big power spike with this item. You’ll be able to kill enemies with just one combo with this item.
  •  Rylai’s Crystal Scepter – Your abilities will constantly slow your enemies once you have this item and it will make it easier to damage them and control team fights in your favor.

The Seven Headed Hydra

Infinity Orb Ionian Boots of Lucidity Rabadon’s Deathcap Awakened Soulstealer Liandry’s Torment Mejai’s Soulstealer

This Aurelion Sol Wild Rift item build works well in three conditions: Your team has enough crowd control, you have an effective peeler, and the enemy team has no high HP champions. The first two conditions are fulfilled if you have Alistar, Malphite, or Braum in your team. This build increases your CDR to the max and grants you high burst damage which contrast the first build’s DPS and utility function.

  •  Infinity Orb – Makes your abilities deal bonus magic damage against low hp champions. Build this item instead of Rod of Ages if you get the first blood.
  •  Awakened Soulstealer – Grants the highest amount of cooldown reduction plus grants an additional cooldown reduction to your ultimate with every unique takedown which is not affected by the CDR cap.
  •  Ionian Boots of Lucidity – Grants additional cooldown reduction.

Runes for Aurelion Sol in Wild Rift

  • Phase Rush – Grants movement speed burst after damaging an enemy with three consecutive attacks or abilities. This is great for weaving in and out of the battlefield. Conqueror is also a viable item if you have enough burst damage in your team as this will increase your damage the longer the fight goes on so this is the better rune if you have many tanky enemies.
  • Brutal – Increases your damage and penetration.
  • Second Wind – Grants bonus HP regeneration and heal a portion of missing health when damage to help with early game pokes. Adaptive Carapace grants bonus HP and bonus adaptive resistance based on the damage most taken in the past minute.
  • Sweet Tooth – Grants bonus gold and HP regeneration on eating Honeyfruits.


In our Aurelion Sol Wild Rift Guide, here are the best champion spells that you can equip on him.

Ignite increases your chances of killing the enemy especially when ganking the bot lane which almost always carry a heal summoner spell.

Flash is necessary for Aurelion Sol because he has no natural disengage abilities.

Skill Order


1st, Breath of Light is maxed first as it is your main source of damage and lane clear. 3rd, Singularity is maxed next to scale it for the mid game, and for crowd-control and max 2nd, Astral Flight last as it provides enough utility and mobility as level 1. Get a point in your ultimate whenever possible.


Infernal Chains

Aurelion Sol’s damaging Abilities break down enemies into stacks of Stardust, which permanently improves each of his abilities.

Infernal Chains

Aurelion Sol channels his dragon breath for a few seconds, damaging the first enemy hit and splashing reduced damage onto nearby enemies. Each second the breath is channeled directly at an enemy will deal bonus damage, which is improved by the amount of Stardust that’s been collected. This ability collects Stardust if the target is a champion.

Infernal Chains

Aurelion Sol flies over terrain in a targeted direction. While in this state, he can cast other abilities. Breath of Light no longer has a cooldown or maximum channel duration and deals increased damage while flying.\n\nAstral Flight’s remaining cooldown is reduced whenever an enemy champion dies after being recently damaged by Aurelion Sol.\n\nStardust increases Astral Flight’s maximum range.

Infernal Chains

Aurelion Sol summons a black hole, damaging enemies and slowly pulling them toward its center. This ability grants Stardust each time an enemy dies within the black hole and for each second an enemy champion is caught inside it. The center of the black hole executes enemies who are below a certain percentage of their maximum health. Stardust increases Singularity’s area as well as the execution threshold.


Infernal Chains

Falling Star: Aurelion Sol crashes a star into the earth. This impact deals magic damage and stuns enemies while also granting Stardust for each enemy champion it hits. Gathering enough Stardust transforms Aurelion Sol’s next Falling Star into The Skies Descend. The Skies Descend: Aurelion Sol drags a giant star down from the heavens with an increased impact zone and increased damage, knocking up enemies rather than stunning them. A shockwave then spreads from the edge of the impact zone, which damages and slows the enemies it hits. Stardust increases the impact area of both Falling Star and The Skies Descend.

Abilities Analysis

Innate: Cosmic Creator


Aurelion Sol Cosmic Creator

As Aurelion Sol hits enemies with his abilities, Cosmic Creator will have a stack, increasing the area of effect, damage, and execution threshold.

You have to stack as much as possible, as this is his bread and butter when heading into the late game. Your abilities will decimate any enemy, given that this passive has a massive stack.

Q | 1st: Breath of Light


Aurelion Sol Breath of Light

This ability charges to release a Starfire beam that he can direct in the desired direction for up to 3.25 seconds. Enemies hit will then have a stack that deals enormous damage when filled. Additionally, when you cast his second ability, Astral Flight, its cooldown will be refreshed. This way, you can deal huge damage again with his Q.


W | 2nd: Astral Flight

Aurelion Sol Astral Flight

Aurelion Sol will take flight, going through structures and walls. This ability can help him roam like no other champion. Aurelion Sol can potentially catch enemies off-guard, especially with his deadly combo that will leave enemies on gray screen. However, you must cast it carefully and not venture to the map without vision, as it will have a huge cooldown. You won’t be able to escape freely after you’ve cast it.

E | 3rd: Singularity

Aurelion Sol Singularity

Aurelion Sol will cast a black hole, pulling enemies towards the middle of the ability. Additionally, this skill’s potency and area of effect will improve as you get stacks with his passive, making it very dangerous in the late game. This ability can decimate and displace enemies, especially in team fights. It makes Aurelion Sol valuable in team fights, picking off key targets like enemy mid-laner and marksman.

R | Ultimate: Falling Star/The Skies Descend


Aurelion Sol Falling Star/The Skies Descend

This ability has two versions, Falling Star being the normal version of this ultimate skill. Aurelion Sol will bring a star down to its target location in an area of effect. Additionally, enemies will get stunned inside the AoE. On the other hand, The Skies Descend is his upgraded version of his ultimate, if he reaches a certain amount of stacks. Moreover, it will send a huge shockwave across the map, executing enemies if they reach the execution threshold with their HP. This ability can devastate any team, especially when they are grouped up. You can position yourself with a flank position which can catch enemies off-guard, or he can be the initiator of the team.

Aurelion Sol Early Game Guide

Aurelion Sol’s playstyle revolves around clearing out the lane fast then ganking the side lanes.

So, clear your lanes with your 2nd, Celestial Expansion and save your 1st, Starsurge and 3rd, Comet of Legend for your ganks unless you are winning heavily in your lane.

However, do not force to win your lane because it is not how Aurelion Sol is designed. It is better to focus on ganking your side lanes because you can begin ganking regularly as early as level three. Every time your 3rd, Comet of Legend is available, look for a lane to gank.

It is best to gank lanes are overextended so you’ll have a better chance of landing your 1st, Starsurge on your enemy.

Recalling before setting up your ganks are a good trick to catch enemies off guard because they’ll think that you went back to get your items and will go back to your own lane instead of ganking.

Aurelion Sol Late Game Guide

In the late game, do not join your teammates if they are grouping up. Shove the next lane where your team is ganking. For example, if they are in top, go mid and if they are in mid, you can stay at top or bottom. It is ideal that you shove a lane that is pushed into your side of the map because you don’t want to be picked off and killed alone which will happen if you overextend.

Positioning yourself far from your teammates will allow you to create a large 1st, Starsurge which will force enemies to either disengage and scatter or suffer your stun.

After your 1st, Starsurge + 3rd, Comet of Legend entrance. Keep damaging enemies using your 2nd, Celestial Expansion. Stay with your team and do not overextend because as time passes by, the more you’ll be susceptible to being one-shotted by enemy champions.


For our Aurelion Sol Wild Rift Guide, we highly recommend using with the following champions as they synergize well with her.

Master Yi requires a lot of farm and that makes his team’s early game a little harder because of the lack of ganks. Aurelion Sol takes care of that void because he is an amazing ganker from the get go.

Shyvana is a farming jungler whose focus is securing Drakes so she can have a strong mid to late game. She is not strong without her ultimate, Dragon’s Descent so her ganks will be scarce. Aurelion Sol will take care of the ganks while Shyvana is focused on her farming.

All Aurelion Sol Wild Rift Counter Champions

In this section, we’ll specifically show champions that can easily counter Aurelion Sol in Wild Rift.

Fizz’s kit just simply makes Aurelion Sol’s life hard all game long. Aurelion simply doesn’t have enough damage or pressure in the early game to hinder Fizz and his Playful/Trickster is a hard counter to all your skills plus he can simply dash into inside your stars, which makes it close to impossible to deal with this annoying fish.

Katarina is another mobile assassin who can simply outmaneuver and outgank Aurelion Sol. When facing her, it will boil down who executes better ganks and who kills more in the early game, will most likely snowball to victory. Do not fight Katarina head-on as she can dodge your 2nd, Celestial Expansion and burst you down.

Pros & Cons About Aurelion Sol

Here are some pros and cons if you are playing with Aurelion Sol in Wild Rift.


  • Aurelion Sol provides constant damage in team fights and he dishes out good offensive utility as well. His constant map pressure thanks to his ganks in the early to mid game makes life easy for his team.
  • Aurelion Sol is not that popular of a champion so most of your enemies in the lower tier will have a hard time against you because of the simple fact that they don’t know Aurelion Sol.
  • Laning with Aurelion Sol is easy because he can clear the lane with just one click of a button.


  • Aurelion Sol is a unique champion and because of that, it could be a big challenge to learn how to play him effectively. During the first few games, you’ll find yourself dying because you are more focused on trying to hit the enemy with the orbiting stars than your HP.
  • Enemies who know how to counter Aurelion Sol will punish you hard through pressuring you while in lane and when you are ganking, they will also punish you by hard pushing your lane.
