League of Legends Aurelion Sol has been in the shadow for too long now. But, his rework has finally made it into the PBE for players to test.

His new reworked kit adds a strength to Aurelion which has been missed since his first release way back in 2016.

Since then, he has struggled against many of the metas seen in both casual and competitive play.

This is why Riot Games have given him a rework fit for a celestial king and once again made him viable for the current meta.

His arrival on the PBE was initially delayed due to some 'tech issues', but this has disappeared as players can access the Star Forger.

But, when will Aurelion Sol be put into the live game?

Let's look at the release date for Aurelion Sol and what we should expect to see from him in League of Legends.

Aurelon Sol Reworked Abilities

Here are all of the reworked abilities for Aurelion Sol.

Passive: Cosmic Creator

The new passive is a built-in scaling mechanic similar to Syndra’s shards. When Aurelion Sol damages enemies, he gains stacks of Stardust, which permanently improves each of his abilities depending on how many stacks of Stardust he has.

Q: Breath of Light

Aurelion Sol breathes celestial fire in a direction for several seconds, damaging the first enemy struck and dealing a small amount of AoE damage around that first target. Every second that the first target continues to take damage, they are dealt additional damage, which scales with his stacks of Stardust. If the first target struck is a champion, Aurelion Sol gains a stack of Stardust.

W: Astral Flight

Much like Aurelion Sol’s previous kit, this ability allows him to take to the skies over Summoner’s Rift. With this new ability, however, Aurelion Sol can cast abilities while he is flying. To use it, Aurelion Sol picks a point elsewhere on the map and flies towards it. The maximum distance he can travel using Astral Flight increases with his Stardust stacks.

E: Singularity

His third basic ability, Singularity, summons a black hole that slows enemies and begins to pull them toward its center. He gains Stardust stacks each time that an enemy dies within the black hole and for each second that an enemy champion is caught inside of it. Enemies who reach the center of the black hole are immediately executed if they are below a certain percentage of their maximum health, Stardust stacks increase Singularity’s size and make the execution threshold higher.

R: Falling Star

His new ultimate is Falling Star, which is exactly what it sounds like, the Targonian space dragon pulls a star out of the sky and slams it into the ground nearby him after a short delay. The star deals magic damage and stuns enemies, gaining stacks of Stardust for each enemy champion hit, Once Aurelion Sol has gathered enough stacks of Stardust, his next cast of Falling Star becomes The Skies Descend.

Empowered R: The Skies Descend

Once he’s reached certain thresholds of Stardust stacks, his next Falling Star becomes The Skies Descend. The Skies Descend works the same as Falling Star except that it has a massively increased impact zone, increased damage, and knocks enemies up instead of stunning them so that Tenacity doesn’t reduce the time spent under crowd control. The Skies Descend also has its area expanded by stacks of Stardust.
