Tank is in a moderate spot in the current meta of season 12. If you want to learn how to play Ornn on your matches, keep in mind that this champion is moderately difficult to play in LoL. This Ornn guide will give you also an understanding on how to beat Ornn. Besides the upcoming Ornn Top Build the position Mid is a valid choice as well.
Rimeforged Grasp as the favoured mythic item. As the game progresses, the most popular
Ornn items are
Frostfire Gauntlet and
Plated Steelcaps are the most bought
Ornn boots by Pros. This Ornn Build will totally increase your chances to gain LP and to climb the leaderboard in LoL.
If this Ornn Build has any weak points, it's in his early game. His weaknesses in the early game are those he shares with fellow immobile melee tanks. He will be vulnerable to being poked before he bulks up with items, and he will be susceptible to ganks whenever his
Flash is down.
That being said, he has many advantages in lane that other champions don’t. For one, his
Living Forge passive allows him to stay in lane for longer periods of time. Unless
Ornn is gravely injured, he can stay in lane and continue to farm, while still progressing his item build. If you’re having a rough time in a particular matchup, you can buy a
Chain Vest or
Negatron Cloak just a few paces away from your opponent and then be in a much better position.
Past level six,
Ornn can look into
Teleport-ganking bot lane or taking a walk to mid. His ultimate is extremely difficult to dodge, particularly if the enemy has lost their
Flash or is in general immobile, like
Ornn is in his element come mid and late game, when team fights are more and more common.
Ornn plays many roles in a team fight and is effective at them all.
The most iconic role
Ornn plays is that of an initiator, and his extremely long-ranged ultimate is to thank. His ultimate
Call of the Forge God is often a death sentence for whoever he chooses to target with it – doubly so when
Ornn is playing against immobile enemies.
As a heavy duty tank,
Ornn can stay in the middle of the fight or in the enemy backline and soak up a lot of damage for his team. If you have a very scary, but also very fragile, midlaner or botlaner,
Ornn can keep them safe by peeling enemies off with his constant onslaught of CC. With the use of
Bellows Breath and
Call of the Forge God, he can keep applying Brittle to enemies all fight long to deal extra damage and pile on more and more crowd control.
At the beginning of a match start to skill the ability
Volcanic Rupture on
Ornn. As the match progresses, it is best to maximise
Bellows Breath into
Searing Charge and at last
Bellows Breath is a very strong ability of
Ornn in order to build up a lead and dominate your opponents. The passive is called
Living Forge and there is no need to set it manually on a Ornn Build.
Select one of the abilities below in order to start a clip of the ability:
Ornn gains an additional bonus Armor and Magic Resistance from all sources.
Ornn can spend gold to forge non-consumable items anywhere.
Additionally, he can create masterwork items for himself and for his allies.
Ornn is the Freljordian demi-god of forging and craftsmanship. He works in the solitude of a massive smithy, hammered out from the lava caverns beneath the volcano Hearth-Home. There he stokes bubbling cauldrons of molten rock to purify ores and fashion items of unsurpassed quality. When other deities—especially Volibear—walk the earth and meddle in mortal affairs, Ornn arises to put these impetuous beings back in their place, either with his trusty hammer or the fiery power of the mountains themselves.

Short Story: The Lost Tales of Ornnby Matt Dunn
“I have never seen the forgotten god. My grandmother told me these tales, but she never saw the forgotten god either—nor did her grandmother before her, or hers before her, a thousand times over. His legends endure only around crackling fires and meals of roasted fish. The further back we trace our ancestors, the truer the tales become.”
