Best Ornn Build Guide | Runes | Spells | Items in League of Legends
Champions that are played in the top lane of League of Legends usually don't contribute to their team with any special abilities or buffs, but Ornn does. Orn's ability kit is rather unique in League of Legends, and thanks to it, it was created a new state of crowd control called "Brittle", which Ornn casts
Best Ornn build
Despite having a unique skill set, Ornn's abilities are quite simple to use, and pretty straightforward, being the most complex his ultimate, but that's just if you redirect it, because yes, you can. Other than that, as always, we're going over his best runes, shards, Summoner Spells, items, skill order, and more.
Best Ornn runes
To start things off, Ornn's best rune set is a combination between the "Resolve" and the "Inspiration" rune trees. In the first section, you're going to equip "Demolish", "Bone Plating", and "Overgrowth". This will ensure you resist enemy damage, especially when you initiate team fights and stun the enemy.
Best Rune Path
Grasp of the Undying
Best Slot 1 (Rune)
Best Slot 2 (Rune)
Best Slot 3 (Rune)
For the second rune set, you're going to equip "Magical Footwear" and "Biscuit Delivery". Magical Footwear is excellent to save some money on boots, and this is even better for Ornn since he can invest that gold in crafting items under the protection of his tower. "Biscuit Delivery" is also good for him to stay alive in League of Legends games
Best Ornn Rune Shards
His best rune shards start with Attack Speed first since you will be using his auto attacks when his abilities are on cooldown.
Best Rune Shards
+10 Attack Speed
Add armor in the two remaining spots so he can resist more physical damage in the laning phase.
Best Ornn Spells
His best spells are "Flash" and "Teleport". Flash is commonly used in almost all champions in the game, so don't hesitate to equip it to get in and out of team fights or tough situations.
"Teleport" with Ornn is super helpful, despite being able to craft items without needing to go to base, this spell is still useful to go back quickly to his tower with few more items under his belt or with a full HP bar.
Best Ornn Abilities Order
Ornn has a lot of CC in among his abilities, that's why want to level them up in the correct order to get the most out of each of them. Start by focusing on his "Bellows Breath", this is the easiest way to CC an enemy, and Ornn players should know that. Next in his skill order is "Volcanic Rupture", which is an ability Ornn can use to poke enemy champions.
Continue at last with "Searing Charge", if used correctly, this ability stuns your enemies and knocks them up, this one is perfect to set combos if there's a Yasuo in your team. As always, level up your ultimate ability, in Ornn's case, "Call of the Forge God". If used correctly in the middle of a fight, this can give the upper hand to your team.
Best Ornn Items
Ornn's best items are those for tanks. You can be sure he'll resist a lot of damage when he engages in battle, and to pair that with his multiple forms of CC, you have a pretty decent character that can initiate easily fights.
Best Ornn Starter Items
For starters in this Ornn build, you're going to equip a "Doran's Shield", a "Health Potion", and your good-old "Stealth Ward". Along with "Grasp of the Undying", these items will give you resistance from the beginning.
Best Ornn Mid Game Items
Once you've reached the mid game, you should have these items according to our Ornn build. The "Sunfire Aegis" is perfect for tanks such as Ornn, this way they deal damage as they are close to enemies.
The "Plated Steelcaps" and the "Thornmail" will also be great additions to resist damage and reflect some of it. At this point, you can engage safely in almost any fight.
Best Ornn Final Late Game Items
The cherries on top in this stage of the game are the "Frozen Heart", "Force of Nature", and "Winter's Approach". All of these items are going to increase your defense and magic resistance. For Starters, "Frozen Heart" is great to slow down the attack speed of any nearby enemy champions.
Force of Nature
"Force of Nature" ensures magic resistance and more durability to the CC of your abilities. And "Winter's Approach" is great to increase your mana so you can utilize your abilities such as "Call of the Forge God" or "Volcanic Rupture", which suits well the "Sunfire Aegis", our choice from the mythic items available, which is part of Ornn's core items.
