Riot’s League Team have pushed an Aurelion Sol rework to PBE in an attempt to boost the champion’s low pick-rate.
“Driven by the tantalizing possibilities of freedom and revenge, Aurelion Sol now regards Runeterra with simmering, eternal fury. Surely, it is here, upon this world, that the cosmic balance will tip in his favor once more” read his bio on League’s official site. We do hope that the rework allows the stars to favor him and increase the champion’s overall popularity. Players should note that rework would only affect the champions ability kit, retaining the original voiceover, skin variants.
The splash art for the champion remains unchanged too. The Space Dragon currently has two skin variants other than the baseline skin, including a Mecha Dragon variant and an Ashen Lord skin. The more he gathers Stardust, the more the player can use it to improve the damage of his abilities as well as cast the ultimate.
Cosmic Creator – Passive
Aurelion Sol' damaging abilities break down enemies into stacks of Stardust, which
permanently improves each of his abilities.
Q – Breath of Light
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.
W – Astral Flight
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.
Astral Flight's remaining cooldown is reduced whenever an enemy champion dies after
being recently damaged by Aurelion Sol.
Stardust increases Astral Flight's maximum range.
E – Singularity
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 size as well as the execution threshold. Gathering 75 Stardust transforms Aurelion Sol's next Falling Star into The Skies Descend.
R – Falling Star
Falling Star: Aurelion Sol crashes a star into the earth. This impact deals magic damage stunning 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 in turn damages and slows the enemies it proceeds to hit.
Stardust increases the impact area of both Falling Star and The Skies Descend.
