Aphelios's Trends

Playing against Aphelios

Key Insights
Aphelios has five weapons -- each with a unique attack,
Q
ability/cooldown, and interaction with
R
.
Aphelios always begins the game with Calibrum and Severum, and has Gravitum, Infernum, and Crescendum queued in reserve. Based on weapon usage, this queue can change.
Instead of ranking up abilities per level up, Aphelios invests those points to increase his Attack Damage, Attack Speed, or Lethality. He automatically gains access to
Q
at level 2 and
R
at level 6.
Any
Q
Aphelios has can be used as long as there is at least 1 ammo left.
Strengths
When Aphelios syncs two specific weapons for different situations, he can net his team huge advantages. Examples:
With Calibrum and Crescendum, he can place turrets to mark enemies and continuously fire long-ranged attacks at them.
With Severum and Crescendum, he can quickly stack Chakrams to annihilate close-range targets.
With Severum and Infernum, he can tag enemies with Infernum's
Q
and instantly heal a large amount from Severum's effects.
Synergizes well with
Galeforce
,
Runaan's Hurricane
,
Infinity Edge
,
Lord Dominik's Regards
, and
Bloodthirster
. Can opt for
Immortal Shieldbow
or
Kraken Slayer
when needed.
Weaknesses
Forcing Aphelios to exhaust Moonlight to swap weapons diminishes his strength.
Immobile, leaving him vulnerable to ganks.
Weak at level 1 since he only has access to auto attacks until level 2.
