Stardust increases Falling Star’s size.

Gathering 75 Stardust transforms Aurelion Sol's next Falling Star into The Skies Descend.

A massive shockwave spreads from the edge of the impact zone, damaging and slowing champions hit.

A popular build on Aurelion Sol right now is utilising his scaling possibility and range by taking First Strike as his primary rune.

As a champion who also has some pretty nice range and poking abilities, taking Arcane Comet or Summon Aery is also viable.

But, as a champion who is still in his early stages, we are seeing a variety of different runes spanning all the different lanes.

Support Aurelion, anyone?

League of Legends Playsyle for Aurelion Sol

As he now has more of a focus on his mage abilities, Aurelion Sol lacks the tankiness that he once had.

Because of this, players should look to utilise their range and poke instead of getting all up in the enemy's grill.

Positioning for this reworked League of Legends champion should be near the back, nearer to the ADC.

But, he is also able to reduce the distance between him and his enemies nicely too.
