The long-awaited CGU has been released, along with his new abilities
Aurelion Sol returns to the Rift following a Comprehensive Gameplay Update that will make League of Legends players fearful of the new Star Forger’s arrival.
Overall, his new kit outperforms the champion’s existing form. Furthermore, his new kit is comparable to Kindred’s in that both rely on acquiring stacks to strengthen their abilities. This new update will enable you to practice your otherworldly talents as Runeterra’s own space dragon, whether you’re slugging it out on the Summoner’s Rift or racing through the Howling Abyss.
New Aurelion Sol abilities
Passive – Cosmic Creator
Aurelion Sol’s 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 the 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.
R – Falling Star / The Skies Descend
Falling Star: Aurelion Sol crashes a star into the earth. This impact deals magic damage and stuns 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 damages and slows the enemies it hits.
Stardust increases the impact area of both Falling Star and The Skies Descend.
The new abilities will be available in Patch 13.3, which will go live on League’s servers next month on February 7.
