[Top 3] TFT Best Aphelios Builds That Are Powerful

Best Aphelios builds in TFT.
The brighter my light, the stronger your shadow.

Aphelios emerges from the moonlight's shadow with his guns drawn and murders the opponents of his religion in a menacing quiet, using only the assurance of his aim and the fire of each pistol to communicate.

He is taken by his sister Alune in her far-off temple sanctuary, where she forces an armoury of moonstone weaponry into his hands despite the fact that the poison he is using has rendered him speechless.

Aphelios will never be alone as long as the moon is overhead.

This is a comprehensive guide to placing Aphelios in TFT so that you SHOT your enemies.

We cannot let fear trap us in twilight.

The moon looms over the towering slopes of Mount Targon, distant, yet impossibly close.Born during a rare lunar convergence, when the physical moon was eclipsed by its reflection in the spirit realm, Aphelios and his twin sister, Alune, were celebrated as children of destiny by those of Targon's Lunari faith.Mirroring the celestial event that heralded their birth, the two children knew they had been marked by fate—Aphelios physically gifted like the moon of stone, and Alune magically like its spiritual reflection.

Aphelios Lunari Alune Solari was born during a rare lunar convergence, when the physical moon was eclipsed by its reflection in the spirit realm. The Solari who ruled Targon considered the Lunari heretics, driving them into hiding until most forgot they even existed.

Aphelios and his twin sister Alune embraced darkness as the only thing that could keep them safe. With a whisper, she pushed magic into his hands, turning his blades into moonstone.

Like the moon of stone and its spiritual reflection, their power converged. Through the noctum, Aphelios could feel Alune's power embrace him… and he could hear her voice. 

Somehow, the Lunari had been discovered even as the celestial cycles turned in their favor.An army of Solari descended upon them.All seemed lost, the Solari purging the Lunari heresy with fire and steel.

Best comps for Aphelios


Rengar is back to TFT with tons of damage, along with all the assassins. Having Zeke’s on your Darkflights (Aphelios, Rell, and Qiyana) would provide Nilah and Rengar with so much attack speed, allowing them to slice enemies.

Best team for this build:

1-Dragon Tyrant Swain in the frontline can take a lot of damage and buy time for the assassins to kill the entire enemy team..

2-Qiyana counts as an additional assassin while being in the Darkflight circle, giving all Darkflight units the item she holds (Zeke’s Herald).

3-Rell, adding to the Darkflight trait while being a tank with Swain.

4-Aphelios, as a darkflight gaining tons of attack speed, would deal some good damage from the backlines.

5-Rengar, being the main carry gaining a lot of HP and attack speed, would make him a beast.

6-Nilah being in a team of 4 assassins and placed beside Darkflighs would make her deal tons of damage.

7-Diana is the 4th assassin, which would make it a set of four assassins.


This is a slow reroll to level 9, trying to get Sylas and Rengar to level 3 while having a good economy to get Aurelion Sol and Swain to level 2 at least by level 8.

Aurelion Sol would be your main damage carry, while Swain would be your main tank carry.

Best team for this build:

1-Swain's Darkflight dragon status makes him the best tank to protect Aurelion Sol.

2-Aurelion Sol would be unstoppable if the Evoker trait was activated.

3-Rengar adding to the Darkflights and dealing some pretty good damage to the enemy’s backlines.

4-Rell is an additional Darkflight and a tank with increased HP.

5-Sylas being a whisperer would make his team deal extra damage, while having a shield would make him a tank.

6-Aphelios is borrowing time for Aurelion Sol as a Darkflight.

7-Zyra turns on Sylas's "whisper" trait and gives the Darkflight champions the item she is holding.


This comp requires a good economy while reaching level 8. Having 2 of the high-cost Dragons isn’t an easy task, but once you hit them, it’s a guaranteed win.

Having Shyvana as the main carry in terms of damage and Swain in terms of tanking would make you unbeatable.

Best team for this build:

1-Shyvana is your main damage carry, knocking up all enemy champions and dealing tons of damage as a Ragewing.

2-Swain being your main carry as a part of 6 Darkflight would make him unkillable.

3-Senna is the best choice to be placed in the Darkflight circle, as she will activate the Cannoneer trait for Aphelios and hit the 4-Ragewing trait for Shyvana.

4-Rell adds to the Darkflight trait while being a tank.

5-Rengar as an assassin, dealing tons of damage to the enemy’s backline and adding to the Darkflight.

6-Aphelios' cannoneer trait and membership in the Darkflights would allow him to deal some good damage from the backlines.
