Aphelios Guide

Learn Aphelios with our Aphelios guide. Learn about Aphelios's strengths and Aphelios's weaknesses, and harness key insights to optimize your playstyle. Whether you're a seasoned player or new to Aphelios, our guide provides the tools you need to dominate the battlefield.
Key Insights
  • Aphelios has five weapons -- each with a unique attack,
    Aphelios
    Q
    ability/cooldown, and interaction with
    Aphelios
    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
    Aphelios
    Q
    at level 2 and
    Aphelios
    R
    at level 6.
  • Any
    Aphelios
    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
    Aphelios
    Q
    and instantly heal a large amount from Severum's effects.
  • Performs best with items that enhance his attack damage, critical strike chance, and life steal.
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.
