AURELION SOL STAR FORGER

 

aurelion-sol-wallpaper

 

CENTER OF THE UNIVERSE PASSIVE

AurelionSol_PassiveThree stars constantly orbit Aurelion Sol, dealing magic damage and applying spell effects to enemies they strike.

 

 

 

STAR SURGE Q

AurelionSol_QAurelion Sol fires the core of a newborn star in a target direction that explodes—dealing damage and stunning all nearby enemies—upon reactivation or once it travels beyond his stars’ maximum orbital range. Aurelion Sol can travel alongside Starsurge, and by keeping it close he’ll nurture it, growing it in size so that it damages and stuns a wider area when it explodes.

 

 

CELESTIAL EXPANSION W

AurelionSol_WAurelion Sol pushes his stars out to his outer ring, significantly increasing their power. Celestial Expansion costs mana to cast and drains mana every second the ability is toggled on. Once he toggles the ability off or runs out of mana, Aurelion Sol pulls his stars back.

 

 

COMET OF LEGEND E

AurelionSol_EPassive: Aurelion Sol builds up increasing movement speed as he travels continuously in the same direction, and loses speed on sharp turns. Some of this speed is stored away as Escape Velocity stacks, which are lost entirely whenever he takes damage from an enemy.

Active: Once Aurelion Sol maxes his Escape Velocity stacks, he can activate Comet of Legend to pull in his orbiting stars and take flight, traversing over terrain for a long distance. He cannot turn once his course is set, and enemy damage will bring Aurelion Sol back to earth, restoring his orbiting stars.

 

 

VOICE OF LIGHT R

AurelionSol_RAurelion Sol shoots out a long wave of starfire in a target direction that damages and slows all struck enemies. Nearby enemies caught in the blast are also knocked back to Aurelion Sol’s outer ring.

(credit to SkinSpotlights for the videos)

 

 

Nottingham Ezreal, Red Baron Corki and all their friends storm out of retirement for a limited time.

From 29 November to 31 December, 47 previously retired Legacy skins will be in the store at their regular price. Each skin will be on sale for 50% off for one day during this time so you can nab a discount on all your favorite retired skins.

Since we’re giving out the schedule ahead of time though, we won’t be offering refunds if you purchase a skin before it’s on sale and miss out on the discount.

For those of you who just have to have it all, we’re introducing the Mega Legacy Bundle for a limited time. From 29 November to 2 December, you can add all 47 skins to your wardrobe for 60% off and pick up the corresponding Champions for 50% off. Of course, the bundle will automatically adjust in pricing depending on the content you already own.

Check out the list of skins and the sale schedule below, and pick up your favorites before the doors to the Legacy Vault close until next time!

Each Mystery Skin will deliver a randomly selected un-owned skin currently in the store at 520 RP or higher. As with the first round of Mystery Gifting, you’ll only unlock skins for champions you own.

As an extra treat, we’ll be including several legacy skins that won’t be coming out of the vault for the rest of 2013.

  • TPA Ezreal
  • TPA Orianna

Dealing with counterpicks

 

RiotWrekzButton Rioter RiotWrekz: If you are high in the pick order you would be well served by making a more strategic pick and playing a champion that is going to be relatively safe regardless of lane matchup. Jax is a good example of this in top, a lot of top laners can bully him before 6 and then the lane flips because he gains a lot of consistent power. Naturally this also depends on you playing the lane correctly when in an unfavorable matchup.

If you identify when the enemy laner is going to be getting the most out of their power you can plan the lane around engagements are specific level breaks and play defensively outside of those windows. Barring cases where two champions do not belong in a lane against each other the fundamental toolkit that identifies a champion belonging in X lane should give them the tools to interact with likely opponents in that lane.

Counters inside that context (mage vs mage) are minimal and can frequently be responded to by shifting playstyle and responding appropriately to being behind. Understanding you are behind and shifting to a defensive playstyle can even allow you to get back in the lane as the aggressive player will cause the lane to push and open opportunities for ganks.

 

RiotWrekzButton Rioter RiotWrekz: There is a clear difference between a champion being “overpowered” and a champion having a strong and versatile lane phase. There are a number of champions with powerful team fight potential that struggle during lane phase in many match ups. Finally, “countering” a champion doesn’t just mean picking someone that can win a lane against them, it means evaluating what they bring to a team comp and where you can slot the response to that. As an example, you don’t run Zac in mid to counter nidalee, you run hard engage throughout your team to stop her from poking and disengaging.
