League of Legends - Aurelion Sol the Star Forger will finally live up to his name

The Star Forger has not been represented in League of Legends as well as he is in Legends of Runeterra. Hopefully, his upcoming work will change that.

Aurelion Sol is a Dragon God, one that forges and eats stars, in the League of Legends lore. In the game, he is the champion with the lowest pick rate, whose scaling and damage leave much to be desired.

In the recent developer video, Riot King Cobra explains the ideas floating around for the Aurelion Sol rework, and the directions we can expect Riot Game s to take in his design.

"While we're still early on in ideation, a direction that we're really excited about is having Aurelion SOl shine as a late-game mage, and he expresses his powers through a unique scaling fantasy. So, some of Aurelion Sol's spells are going to grow larger and larger in size."

It appears that, with their scaling, Aurelion Sol's abilities will have new powers added to them. This will also be reflected in the visuals, giving players a feeling of playing a true Space Dragon, which is the core that this champion's player base centers around.

The ultimate goal is to deliver on the hype players had back in the day, when Riot were teasing the release of Ao Shin, who turned in Aurelion Sol sometime during development.

As it stands now, there is no development progress that is set in stone, it seems. However, the ultimate goal is set, and it's a worthy one for sure. We just hope Riot Games deliver on their promise. With how Riot King Cobra is hyped about the champion, we are very optimistic.
