Pros and Cons

PROS:

    Good cc
    Global Ult
    Can get into and out of fights easily
    Can splitpush
CONS:
    Not the best ganks without ult
    Needs to get close to apply CC

Teamfights

Play as a normal ADC, wait for setups from the tanks and be there when fighting for objectives. With Apollo you can splitpush easily, push up waves and get towers when ur team is fighting, if no one comes to save the tower/phoenixes then keep getting them if someone does come then you can ult to the fight and turn it into a 5v4.

Solid builds. My only question is why do you build Dominance in the Alternate Pen Build instead of Titan's Bane?
1
Blackrockfly | March 16, 2021 7:33pm
you build dominance since it applies penetration to your autos, yes I realize they both have the same amount of pen but dominance has better stats which are more suited to his character? titans doesn't provide much to him since his abilities other than his 1 don't hit for that much anyways. most of the time you will ult in which doesn't do a lot of damage and dominance is better on objectives as well.

TLDR; dominance is better suited for him since he is auto based

Yes, Titan's Bane and Dominance both provide the same amount of percent penetration to your auto attacks (20%). However, the bonus damage from Qin's Sais is not affected by Dominance's passive, receiving only 10% penetration from Dominance's base stats, whereas it gets the full 20% benefit from Titan's Bane. When you consider this fact as well as the power difference between the two items, they actually end up being nearly identical in terms of DPS. Their structure damage is also about even, with a slight edge to Dominance, which does roughly 5 more damage per auto (taking into account tower protections and Transcendence passive), which isn't exactly significant.

So with that aspect considered, the only other difference between the two items are Dominance's Mana and MP5 and Titan's passive. I would argue that the Titan's passive is the more valuable element.

I'd also have to disagree with your opinion that Apollo's ultimate Across The Sky doesn't do a lot of damage. 680+(160% Power) at max rank is a significant amount of damage that can definitely benefit from Titan's bonus 20% penetration.
