Aphelios is the brand new champion in League of Legends, and he is quite different from all of the Legends that are present in the game. He possesses five different weapons, everyone, been very powerful. The abilities of Aphelios is different because instead of having four different abilities – three basic abilities, assigned to Q, W, and E, and an ultimate assigned to R. He has two different abilities Q and R – but also has five different weapons with different effects.
Moreover, his Q varies with each weapon, but his W is simply used to switch to the weapon in his off-hand, and he has no E ability at all. Leveling up this champion s different as well as he only has one basic ability and an ultimate, he can improve his base stats with each level.
Ultimate: Moonlight Vigil
Aphelios might be shown to wield a different weapons, but his ultimate remains the same, which is sending out a moon bomb that explodes on the first enemy hit and damages nearby enemies. Those that get tagged by the bomb can be hit with enhanced basic attacks, which vary by the weapon.
• Calibrum, the Rifle
This is a poke/harass weapon, and its basic attacks have extra range. When the abilities deal damage to the enemies, then they are marked. He can then right-click marked enemies anywhere on the map to follow up with a basic attack from his off-hand weapon (or his non-Calibrum weapon, in cases where he swaps Calibrum to his off-hand before firing). This attack detonates other nearby marks for bonus damage against the marked targets.
– Calibrum Q: Moonshot
Fire a skill shot that damages the first unit hit and marks them.
– Moonlight Vigil Calibrum effect
Moonlight Vigil’s follow-up attacks mark all enemies hit. These marks deal with greater damage when consumed.
• Severum, the Scythe Pistol
Severum is a sustain weapon that heals Aphelios for a portion of the damage it deals with. Overhealing from Severum is converted into a small shield.
– Severum Q: Onslaught
Gain movement speed and rapidly fire your main-hand and off-hand weapons at the nearest enemy, prioritizing champions. Onslaught shots behave like basic attacks but deal with reduced damage.
– Moonlight Vigil Severum effect
Moonlight Vigil grants Aphelios a flat heal.
• Gravitum, the Cannon
Gravitum is a weapon that applies a decaying slow to enemies.
– Gravitum Q: Eclipse
Damage and root all enemies on the map affected by Gravitum’s slow. Eclipse doesn’t use Aphelios’ off-hand weapon.
– Moonlight Vigil Gravitum effect
Moonlight Vigil’s follow-up attacks apply a massively increased slow.
• Infernum, the Flamethrower
Infernum is an AoE/waveclear weapon that deals with increased basic attack and ability damage and creates a damaged cone behind enemies hit.
– Infernum Q: Duskwave
Spout a wave of flame, damaging enemies. Then basic attack all enemies hit with your off-hand weapon.
– Moonlight Vigil Infernum effect
Moonlight Vigil’s follow-up attacks create damage circles around enemies hit instead of damage cones behind them.
• Crescendum, the Chakram
Crescendum is a close-range DPS weapon that is like a boomerang. Once Aphelios basic attacks with this, he can’t attack again until it returns to him, but his attack resets when it does. Attack speed increases the weapon’s travel speed instead. The closer Aphelios is to his target, the less distance Crescendum has to travel, and the faster Aphelios can attack. When abilities or their follow-up attacks deal damage with it, they create temporary copies of it for each enemy hit that increases the strength of Crescendum’s basic attack.
– Crescendum Q: Sentry
Deploy a turret that shoots the nearest target with your off-hand weapon.
– Moonlight Vigil Crescendum effect
If Moonlight Vigil hits fewer than three enemies, its follow up attacks still increase the damage of Crescendum’s basic attacks as if at least three enemies were hit.
