Aphelios counter tips

Laning Against

Stand outside of the minion wave as Aphelios does have a lot of AOE damage. Additionally, stand away from the Tower if you’re pushed under it as his AOE autos will hit you if you’re behind the Tower. With that said, he will take Tower aggro if it hits you.

Don’t trade at level 1 with Aphelios if you’re playing as an AP champion. He is AD based and will deal more damage than you early.

The best time to trade with him is when there are a lot of minions in the minion wave because as soon as he auto attacks you, they will start focusing him and they will deal a lot of extra damage for you.

Strategy VS

When marked by Aphelios

ApheliosQ_ClientTooltipWrapper

, don’t bother retreating too far back as his long range auto from his second weapon will still hit you. Stay close so you can get out extra damage.

Aphelios is very mobile. Don’t chase him too much and do not follow him into fog of war as you never know, he might be running towards his Jungler and you might be running into danger.

Stand outside of the minion wave when Infernum is active as it provides him with a lot of AOE damage and wave clear. Make him choose between pushing the wave and poking you.

Power Spikes

Aphelios is very strong in team fights thanks to his Ultimate

ApheliosR

. Try to take him down before or at the start of the team fight to reduce the enemies chances of winning the fight.

Extended trades work in the favour of Aphelios depending on his weapon setup. Try to keep trades short- preferable around his

ApheliosQ_ClientTooltipWrapper

.

Once Aphelios gets his first item, he will be very strong and sustain very well in lane. Unless you match his damage, try not to fight him too much unless you can catch him out of position.
