Aurelion Sol is a very strong roaming champion thanks to his E. This will allow you to impact your side lanes with ease after pushing your lane.
Thanks to his Passive and W, Aurelion Sol has good poke and good wave clear. This will make pushing the wave and trading much easier in comparison to a lot of champions.
Aurelion Sol has lots of utility built into his kit. They offer him tons of protection and manoeuvrability. He has tools to stop ganks and protect himself from all-ins.
Aurelion Sol is a very difficult champion to play. One reason for this is because you need to constantly be aware of your Passive. You will need to put in a lot of time to master Aurelion Sol.
As Aurelion Sol is a roam heavy champion, it can be difficult for you to roam if your side lanes are not strong. It will also be hard to roam against champions with good pushing power.
Aurelion is a mana hungry champion. Keep a constant eye on your mana bar at all times otherwise you'll have little kill threat. He will also be vulnerable to ganks and all-ins if he is low. Ensure you have enough mana to use your E just in case something happens.

15 - 25 min
Keep the minion wave pushed into the enemies tower and look to roam with your E. Keeping them under tower will make them unable to roam or help their allies.
When no team fights are occurring, put yourself in a side lane and push the minion wave. Use your E to move around the map fast and help your allies in case of a fight.
Look to set up picks with your Q by charging towards the enemy from your base or using your E to flank the enemy from the side.
Stick with your team and look for picks with your Q. Avoid walking or moving around Summoners Rift alone.
Use your Ultimate R in the late game as a utility tool to keep your allies safe and to prevent the enemy from getting on to your teammates.
Try your hardest to kite and move around in team fights. It’s important that you stay alive for as long as possible while your Passive and W does the work.
Depending on what level you take your E, your first power spike is when you hit level 3 or 4. While the E won’t help you in 1v1 fights during the early laning phase, it will allow you to help your Jungler if they need you for a potential early scuttle crab fight.
Once Aurelion Sol has completed his first item, he can look for more favourable trades with the enemy. Whilst around your W, you should poke the enemy down and then commit to an all-in once they’re low.
Aurelion Sol’s main power spike his at level 6 when he unlocks his Ultimate R. It offers him a lot of additional damage and can be used in conjunction with his Q to CC the enemy. It also helps him in roams too.
At level 9, Aurelion will max his W ability. This is a very good power spike for him as it will allow him to dish out more damage, and clear waves easier.
During the mid-game, Aurelion Sol should’ve completed multiple items. He should be able to dish out a lot of damage in team fights with his W and Passive.
Level 11 is another good power spike for Aurelion Sol because he gets to put a second point in his Ultimate R.
At level 16, Aurelion will put the third and final point in his Ultimate R. He should be able to deal a lot of burst damage in team fights at this stage of the game.
In the late game, Aurelion Sol will be able to dish out a lot of damage as he should be coming near to completing his build. Ensure that you’re playing around your W effectively to stay alive.
At level 13, Aurelion would’ve maxed out both his W and Q. He should be a real contender to start team fights with his Q.
