League of Legends Reveals Aphelios’ Abilities in New Trailer

Riot Games has released a champion trailer and a complex kit primer for upcoming League of Legends champion Aphelios. Aphelios will be joining the game as the MOBA’s newest marksman this December. His abilities are far from those of a traditional marksman, though, as he has five different weapons that he uses in both main-hand and off-hand positions. Not only do the different weapons make for different abilities, but they also give different passives and different follow-up attacks to the new hero’s ultimate.

With the new kit, Aphelios has a very different control scheme. His main weapon is attached to a unique Q ability for that weapon and his off-hand weapon can be switched into the main slot with W. His R launches an area-of-effect (AOE) bomb after which he follows up with enhanced attacks from the weapon he has equipped in his main slot. The five weapons run the gamut in their style between poke and harass, healing and shields, crowd control, AOE/waveclear, and damage-per-second (DPS).

As Aphelios has so many abilities attached to three buttons, he doesn’t level up his abilities. Instead, they level up on their own at certain milestones and he instead puts skill points into stats like attack damage, attack speed, and magic/armor penetration. Essentially, we end up with a champ that has custom increasable stats and about 16 different ways to attack enemies (basic attacks, q skills, and ultimate enhanced attacks, plus the ultimate itself).

Outside of the weapons, Aphelios has technically only two abilities in his Q and ultimate. His ultimate is Moonlight Vigil – a moon bomb which explodes when it hits another champion and also damages nearby enemies. After using his ultimate, Aphelios can also shoot enemies caught in the blast with enhanced auto attacks.

The five weapons Aphelios can use are a Calibrum rifle, scythe pistol Severum, cannon Gravitum, flamethrower Infernum and chakram Crescendum. To help keep track of all these different abilities and weapons, there’s also a custom HUD for the character – showing you which weapon is in rotation, the remaining ammo and more. Aphelios is certainly a highly complex champion, but it’ll be interesting to see the tricks players will be able to pull off with such a versatile arsenal.
