Solarus Build Honor of Kings | A Complete Guide

This article will guide you with the best build of Solarus(Hou Yi) in Honor of Kings(HoK), which includes his Items, Arcana, Spell, Combo & Counters.


The best spell for Solarus is Flash because he is vulnerable to CC, and this spell will help him escape danger immediately. I will not recommend you any other alternatives for him.


There are not many combos for Solarus, as he deals most of his damage through auto attacks. So try to position yourself well and auto-attack as much as possible. Here are Special combo attacks you can try for Solarus(Hou Yi):

Solarus requires some damage in the early game, so going for the build which gives more damage is best for dominating the HoK farm lane. And you can later build damage and attack speed items, which makes him a late-game monster.

Solarus Counters

Hou Yi may be a destroyer in the late game, but he is pretty easy to counter as he lacks mobility in his kit. Try to shut down in the early game by Ganking his lane and forcing his Flash so that he escapes Dragon Fight, where you look for a good opportunity and kill him.

Solarus is good when the team can make plays from his ult and also from the team who can peel for him, but he is also the worst with heroes who cannot peel for him during fights and can’t make plays from his ult. Here are some heroes who can counter Solarus in Honor of Kings:


Lam is an assassin, and he can kill Solarus when he is not with the support.

Monkey King
Monkey King can tank some damage from him and assassinate him if he has enough gold in the game.

Prince of Lanling
Lanling has invisibility, and it is easy to kill this MM if he is off position for him.
Solarus Counter hero
Lady Sun
Lady Sun has more damage in the early game than him, and she can easily harass 1v1 in the lane.

Luban no. 7
Luban is another marksman who can easily counter Solarus in HoK.
Hero strong against Solarus
Farshot is Strong against Solarus as the passive and ULT of this shooter hero are far better than him.
