Aurelion Sol, or as some may have come to know him by Ao Shin. Thats right Ao Shin, Riot teased this champion about 2 years ago. Know the time has finally come for its upcoming release. We are going to walk you threw this new champion, General Counter Pick, Lane Phase Counters & even Item Counters. Aurelion Sol Counter will only consist of the best picks versus Aurelion Sol.
Aurelion Sol has a nice spell kit versus bruisers, however that wont protect you from the assassin types. He also has a weakness against AP Carrys that can out Range him. Champions such as syndra can have a fairly strong advantage versus Aurelion. while other champions like Diana, are more then weak in the lane match up. This is mainly due to his W and Passive, allowing him to zone many champions for free during lane phase.
Aurelion Sol Champion Counter
The hands down best Aurelion Sol Counter Pick. These Champion not only have a advantage, they easily win the lane phase. Combo that with the items, you will make the new champion look under-powered. While Aurelion can bully many bruisers in lane, he does have some weakness. For example bruiser that can get face to face with him, reduces the Damage you would normally take from his Passive. There are also AP Carrys who can give aurelion a challenge in lane, such as Syndra and Lux. Since they have long range CC and Damage, its hard for any AP Carry Champion to win lane with these type of conditions.
Its not always about the lane phase, sometimes you have to counter pick for the team fight. below we have items that will be effective versus Aurelion Sol, along with some general counter picks. General Counter Pick can be in the form of many things. First and most apparent is a Champion’s Ability to counter another champion naturally. Below is one such example of this using yasuo’s W Wind wall.
Since Yasuo’s W Wind Wall can completely stop about half of Aurelion Sol’s Damage, This makes him a very potent Counter.
This same thing applies to Braum E Wall to some degree. While it wont stop all the damage possible, it can prevent a lot of it including the CC.
General Counters, These Champions are effective versus Aurelion Sol. You don’t even have to be in the same lane, since these are general counter. Some of the more obvious ones, are Yasuo with his W Windwall. Braum is a fairly effective pick versus and AP Carry with skill shots. Alistar is not to bad as well, Since Aurelion is still target-able in flight with his active E.
These will be the most effective items against Aurelion Sol. Building these will give you a big advantage in the lane phase. Since Aurelion is a AP Champion, many standard Items will be effective against him. However two in particular are really use full, Both Abyssal Scepter & Mercurial Scimitar.
Keep in mind, if you are a AD Mid Lane. It is almost a must that you Build Maw of Malmortius, This by far the best item versus any AP Champion.
If you fill you need even more Magic Resist, then i would recommend stacking on a Mercurial Scimitar. This item can help deal with Aurelion Sol Q Stun and R KnockBack/Slow.
