Aphelios is a five-cost unit that works best with the Ox Force trait. Considering he has a unique feature to rotate among his three weapons, he is one of the best carries in the game.

Ox Force, Sureshot, and Arsenal are the three attributes of the League of Legends Aphelios. As is typical for five-cost units, his Arsenal feature is unique, allowing the player to pick one of Aphelios' three ability forms every time he enters the field.

All Ox Force troops get attack speed, which rises with their missing % health. All Ox Force troops also become invulnerable for one second after dying in combat for the first time. Each breakpoint grants the new Teamfight Tactics  trait a greater proportion of attack speed.

Each of Aphelios' synergies adds to the formation of a strong backline unit capable of carrying the composition with the correct items and Aphelios weapons. To switch weapons between engagements, the player must first take Aphelios to the bench and then return him to the field.

Now, let us talk about the best items for your Aphelios carry comp. Guinsoo's Rageblade is a must-have equipment for many backline units since it quickly increases attack speed. Giant Slayer is an item that provides massive quantities of life to the enemy frontlines. 

Infinity Edge increases attack damage by a percentage and allows skill damage to trigger critical hits. It works exceptionally well when combined with other items or Augments that provide critical chance. Last Whisper is an option to assist defeat the opponent's frontline by temporarily decreasing the armor of opponents attacked.

Janna is a unit that performs really well with Aphelios. Because her function demands your units to cluster around her, you can keep Aphelios safe from the enemies while inflicting damage and earning the weather benefit.

Ekko is an excellent frontline option regardless of your team composition. Because of his ability to offer a shield and do area-of-effect damage, equipping him with Morellonomicon can assist him with dealing damage and getting huge shields.
