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 Syndra or Orianna.
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 Volcanic Rupture. 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.
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.
Read Ornn's bio
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 Ornn by 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.”
