Playing against Aphelios

Key Insights
Aphelios has five weapons -- each with a unique attack,
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
at level 2 and
R
at level 6.
Power Spike
If Aphelios syncs two specific weapons for different situations, he can net his team huge advantages. Examples:
With Calibrum and Crescendum, he can drop a turret and continuously fire long-ranged attacks at marked targets.
With Severum and Crescendum, he can quickly heal and stack his chakrams to annihilate close-range targets.
With Gravitum and Infernum, he can tag enemies with Infernum's
and instantly root all of them with Gravitum's
.
Spikes well on his first item (usually
Essence Reaver
or
Infinity Edge
), and spikes very hard at three items.
Vulnerable
Only has mobility with Severum's
. Otherwise, he is vulnerable to ganks, flanks, and collapses.
Weak at level 1 since he only has access to auto attacks until level 2.
Needs the right weapons at the right time. Forcing him to exhaust his Moonlight to swap weapons will hinder his effectiveness.
