As the Aurelion Sol CGU is on the way, now is the best time to look at all his skins.

Aurelion Sol, The Star Forger, was released in League of Legends in 2016. He is the first proper celestial dragon character released in the game. Although players loved Aurelion Sol’s design, they did not like his kit or how he played.

His main gameplay gimmick revolved around his rotating stars. While Aurelion Sol was very unpopular, many players started to learn him and also dominated him. Around the same time, Riot nerfed him from a battle mage to a burst mage. This change ultimately led to Aurelion Sol’s downfall.

After that, barely anybody touched Aurelion Sol to the point where he had the lowest pick rate in the entire game. Because of this, Riot gave ASol a CGU or Comprehensive Gameplay Update earlier this year.

With it, they can fully overhaul a champion’s kit without touching their visuals. Overall, Aurelion Sol’s rework was a success. So, if you want to start playing Aurelion Sol and want some cool skins, here are all of them ranked from worst to best.

Ashen Lord Aurelion Sol is the launch skin released for ASol. Moreover, this skin is a part of the Infernal skin line. But unfortunately, the Infernal skin line is very bare bones and disappointing skin line. And Ashen Lord Aurelion Sol is no different. This skin reimagines Aurelion Sol as a volcanic dragon, and compared to the upcoming skin, Ashen Lord Aurelion Sol is very disappointing. Furthermore, this skin does not have any chromas.

3. Mecha Aurelion Sol

  • New Voice Filter

Mecha Aurelion Sol is one of the game’s best futuristic or robotic skins. Additionally, this skin reimagines ASol as a battle mothership. Moreover, this skin also features a mechanical voice filter, similar to other Mecha skins. The model is the main highlight of the skin as it is the cleanest one for Aurelion Sol.

2. Inkshadow Aurelion Sol

Inkshadow Aurelion Sol is the newest and the first skin that he received after his CGU. And due to it, it has the highest quality of them all. In terms of VFX, it’s unmatched. And for many people, Inkshadow is the best Aurelion Sol skin. But this skin also has massive visibility issues. Moreover, all the chromas look the same.

Besides the minor inconveniences, this skin is amazing. And if you don’t own any Aurelion Sol skins, you should look into Inkshadow.

1. Storm Dragon Aurelion Sol

Storm Dragon Aurelion Sol is the best ASol skin not only for what it offers in-game but also for its history. Initially, a dragon champion named Ao Shin was supposed to be released in League of Legends. He was supposed to be a storm dragon. He was later scrapped and re-purposed as Aurelion Sol. And Storm Dragon Aurelion Sol is a homage to that skin.

Even the skin’s bio refers to Aurelion Sol as Ao Shin, the same name as the scrapped champion. Moreover, the skin design is the most incredible for Aurelion Sol. Though the VFX requires much to be desired, it is well-executed skin. Additionally, if this skin were a legendary skin with different voice lines, it would have been one of the best skins released in League of Legends. And if you are going to main Aurelion Sol in any way, then Storm Dragon Aurelion Sol is a must-have skin for you.
