General info

This comp revolves around Aphelios as the main carry and surrounds him with strong utility and frontline units. Akshan can also act as a secondary carry with extra attack damage items. You can look to play this comp vertically by going for 6 Nightbringer, but in the late game, look to replace your weaker Nightbringer units with stronger units.

When to make

Go for this comp if you have a good start with Nightbringers and strong items for Aphelios. You can also transition into this comp with a strong start of Ranger units.

Game plan
Early Game

Using the Nightbringers along with Ranger units make for a solid start, but you can also use the Redeemed units to surround Varus as your main Ranger carry early on.

Mid Game

At this point, you can continue building up your comp with more Rangers, Redeemed, or Nightbringer units. Ultimately, just try to balance your frontline and backline while keeping traits in mind.

Additional comp tips
  • Positioning Aphelios can be tricky as he is the only backline unit one Akshan starts grappling around. You can move Aphelios to the second row to outplay opponents by avoiding things like Vel'Koz, Thresh, or Zyra's abilities.
