When will the Aurelion Sol rework be released?

The Star Forger will finally get reworks he desperately needed.

Aurelion Sol fans can rest easy, the Star Forger is getting a rework! Aurelion Sol's longly-needed rework is currently live on the League of Legends Public Beta Environment (PBE). The mid-lane champion has been in an unplayable state for some time, with Riot for many years seeming unsure what to do with one of League of Legends' most unique champions. The main question remains, what is the Aurelion Sol rework release date?

Update 08/02/2023: Yesterday evening Riot Games confirmed the release of patch 13.3 will be pushed back by a day. The patch will be released on Thursday, February 9, and February 10 for SEA.

"We’re working to bounce back from the Social Engineering attack, but unfortunately Patch 13.3 will be delayed. We’ll post details back here once we have a good understanding of when we’ll be able to roll out the patch. We apologize for the inconvenience and want to thank you once again for your patience as we work through these unprecedented circumstances. Thank you!" - Riot Riru.

Aurelion Sol rework release date

Although there was some confusion around the Aurelion Sol rework release date, it has now been confirmed by Riot that fans can expect the rework to be released on patch 13.3 (February 8). It was unclear whether the Star Forger would be released on time with delays to his release on the PBE.

  • Breath of Light deals increased damage to champions and its range increases with Aurelion Sol's level.
  • Stardust increases the burst's damage.

W: Astral Flight

  • Aurelion Sol flies over terrain toward the target location, but is revealed through Fog of War to nearby enemies while flying. Aurelion Sol can cast other abilities while flying. During this time, Breath of Light has no cooldown or maximum channel duration and deals increased damage.
  • Astral Flight's remaining cooldown is reduced whenever an enemy champion Aurelion Sol recently damaged dies.
  • Stardust increases Astral Flight's max range.

E: Singularity

  • Summon a black hole for a few seconds, damaging enemies and slowly pulling them toward the center. Singularity grants Stardust per second for each enemy champion in the black hole.
  • The center of the black hole executes enemies below a percentage of their maximum health, granting Stardust based on the type of enemy executed.
  • Stardust increases Singularity's size (including the center zone) and execute threshold.

R: Falling Star / The Skies Descend

  • Falling Star: Crash a star into the earth, dealing magic damage and stunning enemies hit. Falling Star grants Stardust for each enemy champion hit.
  • Stardust increases Falling Star’s size. Gathering 75 Stardust transforms Aurelion Sol's next Falling Star into The Skies Descend.
  • The Skies Descend: Drag a giant star down from the heavens, significantly increasing the size of the impact zone, increasing damage dealt, and knocking enemies up rather than stunning them. A massive shockwave spreads from the edge of the impact zone, damaging and slowing champions hit.
  • Stardust increases the size of the impact zone.
