There is some flexibility with how you should build and play Aurelion Sol. This champion has a lot of global map pressure, this is mainly due to his E.

Thanks to his W, Aurelion has lots of fun Item Synergy’s. For example his W is amazing with Rylai’s Crystal Scepter, Simply active your W and walk with the enemy. Combo this with Ludens Echo, the enemy will find it very difficult to escape from you.
List of some of the Most Notable Items for Aurelion Sol:
Rylais Crystal Scepter + W Celestial Expansion
Ludens Echo + W Celestial Expansion
Abyssal Scepter + W Celestial Expansion
This is what we recommend using for Masteries with Aurelion Sol. Since he is more of a Utility heavy champion, more defensive masteries suit him very well. CDR and HP help a lot on Aurelion Sol, mostly because of how his spell kit works. It very easy thanks to his W to proc Thunder Lords, His W though can eat up a lot of mana in the process. These masteries have been geared towards, helping with some of Aurelion Sol Weak Points. It also is making use of his Strong Points as well.
These is the recommended Aurelion Sol Rune Page. You’ll want use 9x mag pen runes, flat magic resist, put in some armor in yellow slots and for the quinns grab 15 ability power. You may want to try movement speed Runes, I think the defensive runes have more value for Aurelion Sol. Since you will be close to the enemy to increase your damage dealt, this can put you at risk of getting CC or Bursted. This is also the reasoning behind his item build as well.
This is the most effective way to level up Aurelion Sol Skills. This will enable you to get the most damage, threw the leveling process and general progression of the game. Using your W to help push the lane, will allow you to roam more. However it recommended you Level your Q up First, since it will provide overall more Damage and CC for Ganks and Team Fights.
Passive Center Of The Universe: Base Damage is 20/22/24/26/28/31/34/37/40/45/50/55/60/67/74/81/88/97 magic damage and executing minions below 25 health : Makes farming with champion easy, also is very effective versus many bruiser.
Q StarSurge: 70/110/150/190/230 (+.65) magic damage and a 1/1.25/1.50/1.75/2 second stun. : A very viable ability for Follow up Ganks, also great for exchanging in lane. Landing this SkillShot will Make or break a good Aurelion Sol. Vel’Koz Players will feel right at home with this Spell.
W Celestial Expansion: Increases Star base damage by 10/20/30/40/50 – While Active deal 150% damage: Mastering this Ability is Number 1 priority. Since this spell will help you lane phase, and also will be effective in both Ganks and Team Fights. Players will have to learn how to Orbwalk with this spell active in mind.
E Comet Of Legend: Continuously moving in one direction grants increasing Movement Speed up to 30/35/40/45/50% – Active at 100 Escape Velocity, fly for 3000/4000/5000/6000/7000 units : If any spell is Over powered, it will be this one. While Passive, you gain absurd amounts of movement speed. This will allow you to roam much more effectively. Thats not even the best part, The real magic happens when you activate it. You pretty much get Bard Tunnel (Magical Journey), but anywhere on the map. Yup, you can fly over anything walls, towers, other champions. The Ganking possibility with this champion are going to be something players will have to respect. (Important Note: Taking Damage from Champions/Turrets will Cancel your E)
R Voice of Light: 200/300/400 (+ .7 AP) magic damage and slowing by 60/70/80%, decaying over 4 seconds: Think of this as more of really short range Lux Ult, but with a CC twist. This spell will help you peel off champions, it can also displace enemy champion into your W’s damage Range.
This is the most effective way to level up as Aurelion Sol, Most of his burst will come from his Q. While a lot of Damage per Second will be from his W. Get close enough to the enemy, you can do a good amount damage with his R. keep in mind his R is really use full for displacing the enemy as well.
