Sol' threats

Sol's role in conquest.

Sol is a mage designed to keep high pressure in lanes with her passive and sustain. She can outbox quite early and outsustain forcing early rotations to her relieving pressure from everywhere else. Sol is a hard got to gank especially when fed as she can out damage and heal alot of the damage from junglers so playing aggressively in lane suits her style of play really well.

Early Game

MID

Sol should start in mid most of the time. Clearing on the enemy tower line and building up her passive allows her to quickly invade enemy red. It is always a good idea to keep watch for the enemy just in case they try and counter this technique. Only do this strategy if you gain the pressure in lane to safely invade. If you cannot, clear left mid harpies and complete you red.

During buff downtime, Sol should be poking at the enemy tower. She has a great early game passive so if left alone Sol can take down objectives really quickly. Taking down the enemy mid tower opens up a lot of the map to allow your team to gain control. Once your tower is down helping other lanes get towers should be your next objective outside of general camp farming.

ADC
AS an ADC Sol needs to play around having sustain over the enemy. utilise the passive and gain pressure in lane. Invading purple buff is 100% the goal as it is with most other hunters. You need to hope the enemy come to engage you while your passive is max. Make sure to stay on the purple buff until they come to keep your passive.

Sol needs to be paired with any high pressure support. You need to take the tier 1 tower asap to open up gold fury opportunities to where sol can easily burst down the gold with her ultimate. If clear Sol should ult the gold fury at around 50% Her burst damage is not great so ulting early gets the objective done faster.

Playstyle

Sol is a pressure god. She needs to be in a winning position to do much in the game. Her defence is quite lacklustre although her ult does provide good zoning.

In lane Sol can really bully out the enemy laner. She can push up rather safely, so don't be afraid of the enemy jungler coming over. Pay attention to the enemy jungler level so you can be ready to fight as your passive should be almost full.

Sol uses range and healing. really well. Keep up the damage until the enemy is around 50% hp. This is where Sol can close the gap and use radiance while boxing at melee range. Using this method of boxing against another ranged character can really sway the fight for you as you are healing and applying damage over time if the enemy chooses to fight you inside it.

Once Sol has Bancroft's Talon and her Pen boots online Sol can fight almost any character in the game. Don't be afraid to attack junglers as they need to chase you down to get the kill. This is where Sol can throw all 4 abilities down at her feet and really chasing gods out.

With Sol you want to hit your Stellar Burst around 2 times combined with auto attacks before you can go for the kill. Throwing Stellar burst and swiping your ultimate up can finish off targets really easily.

Stay on objectives. If you pick Sol Mid over another character you need to play for burning objectives. Stay on the towers and phoenixes and throw your Stellar burst and Supernova combo on targets who come close or those who get cc'd

Good Matchups

Bakasura: Sol's Disapperate is not affected by cripples so she can easily throw down her burst and peel off/kill Bakasura.

Poseidon: Sol can Disapperate out of whirlpool making it harder for Poseidon to Kraken her.

Serqet: Sol Disapperate cleanses Last Breath if timed correctly.

Fenrir: Fenrir can never Brutalize you, he will die unless he is full tank. If he is tanky, you have nothing to fear from him.

Ares: Sol can ult/Disapperate and be free from Ares pull.

Cupid: Sol can Disapperate out of Fields of Love.

Baron Samedi, using Disapperate combined with the ult Sol cannot be pulled by Baron.

Any form of CC Sol's Ult is CC IMMUNE

Do you only build Shaman's Ring if you build Rod of Tahuti? Because it seems it turns it into a worthwhile item. I've been trying it on an ability based Chronos build and it does a **** ton of damage if you have Section III active (which I normally am not a fan of).

My criticisms:

Some games you will need Demonic earlier in the build, but for now the overall build is fine.

I can't agree with Shaman's Ring on Sol. She only gets good use from it on her 2 and ult which isn't exactly... stellar. Not to mention for basic attack usage Telkhines Ring is superior to it. I just don't see it as worthwile item on her.

Some alternative items for Mid and ADC I would like to see mentioned: Typhon's Fang (situational, dependent on how much anti-heal is present), Hastened Ring, Magi's Cloak, Mantle of Discord, Doom Orb, Obsidian Shard (you mentioned for ADC but should also be mentioned for Mid too).

Also, Void Stone on Sol? Is this against teams with high magical dps? Or you know their best players are using mages? I would usually think Void Stone would be quite the situational pickup.

No mention of Celestial Legion Helm for ADC?

I respect the ideas but I disagree. Shaman's Ring is good on Sol because it boosters he combo to a 1shot level combo. Not to mention when getting dove the bonus damage on 4 skills is really nice. Never get Typhon's Fang as sol builds bancroft's and had a heal. This means you should not go for more healing because you are kicking yourself if they do buy antiheal. Cloaks on Sol are useless especially magis as you have 3 forms of cc immunity including Beads. Doom orb is not a good item. Shard, sure I agree I should have but that as a counterbuild item. For void stone. This item has been a bruiser item for mages for quite some time. It is also something I have bought for a while and it is really good. Celestial helm is overrated and for sol who can build 3 good pen items I would stick with dynasty right now as the price is too good not to purchase.

Dinasty Plate Helm? If you are going to list a full build, you need put t3 items, not bridge omes.

10 pen from magi, 10 from dynasty, 15 from deso? Did you look at the build?

I do agree though that Demonic is delayed for far too long.

What do you mean?

Looking at your comment history, it either seems you know the author and perhaps DiscoFerry, or you're just a very silly individual.
