Summoner Spells Back to Top

4.png With the introduction to smite at top this can be exchanged for it. I am not a fan of it however and prefer flash over anything just because it is a high utility aggressive and defensive spell.


12.png A standard top lane spell. Very useful for mid-game objective focus and split push focus. Even late game it has really important uses and is a high map pressure spell.
 
3.png Useful in some matchups and a real annoyance in teamfights.

14.pngExtremely useful spell. Ignite can help you get early kills, it can get you kills in teamfights. Even when you go behind in lane ignite can turn 1v1s around. It can even help you 1v2 the enemy laner and enemy jungler.  

My favourite Combo would have to be ignite and flash. Just because of the kill pressure it brings to lane.

Q - Dark Flight:

Aatrox's bread and butter ability - use it to jump walls, disengage, engage, dodge projectiles or as a basic cc tool. In any case, you must aim to land your knock up. It can make a difference in determining whether you get a kill or not. It can be a little awkward to land because the enemy has to be in the center of the radius to get knocked up. With a few games however it should become pretty easy to land it.

W- Blood Price/ Blood Thirst:
This is what makes up Aatrox's kit. Remember to abuse blood price when it is safe to do so. General rule of thumb is to keep blood price toggled on until you are below 50 percent HP where you can switch blood thirst for the lifesteal.

E- Blades Of Torment:
This ability is useful for the slow and for poke. With 4 points in it can deal quite a bit of damage. The projectile is awkward to land because not only is  slow but it also tends to get skinnier along its path. 

Max Order:
(Explanation): 
With Aatrox you can start any ability. If you are against a squishy start Q and jump on him level 1. If you would like to rush level 2 for an all in start E. If you would like to weave autos in between and trade start W.

Max order - E in most cases. Unless your running attack speed quints then maybe go for W but still E scales really well with AD.
After W.

Items Back to Top

Starting Items

    Perfect start. Raw AD. Lifesteal and health. Did aatrox have it crafted for himself?
    Really good against heavy AD matchups like Pantheon and Darius. Really obnoxious to lane against as well.

Core Items

    You should mostly focus on rushing this item first. Mostly. Huge powerspike on Aatrox.
    Rush this against AP. That shield is way more useful then you think it is.
    Mid game core usual lane.
    Mid game core against AP
    Good mid game rush against unfavourable AD matchup that you may be losing.
    My favoured final build. Usually bought. Bork>Merc>Cleaver>Randuin>Hydra>Maw My last item could be either Maw/LW/GA/Warmogs depends on the situation.

Situational Items

    In case of a heavy AD enemy comp
    Defensive option instead of Maw.

Notes:

Aatrox can be built really versatile so dont be afraid to experiment. My favoured built changed because of how op the new cleaver is. However that is a really good snowbally build.

3074_64.png OR 3153_64.png

WHICH ITEM TO RUSH?
Honestly what do you prefer. I would say incase of attack speed runes get hydra first but BORK feels more comfortable for me especially because I run Flat AD runes. Also with hydra sometimes im left feeling that if I had BORKs active i might have chased someone down. So all in all I would recommend BORK.

VS

Akali

Easy

Shes squishy. Start Q jump on her with minion advantage and auto her. You will most likely be able to bully after this.

VS

Cho'Gath

Easy

Really weak early on just trade with him alot. Jump on him with your 3 auto and you would chunk him upto half health with Q>Auto>E combo

VS

Darius

Medium

Skill matchup. He has enough counter play try to bait out his q and then try to trade with him.


Start cloth 5. Only reason this matchup can be hard is because you are squishy and he can take your passive but if you play around your sustain you should be able to win this lane.

Play with AD quints.

VS

Dr. Mundo

Easy

Really weak in the early levels. Plus also stacks hp. pretty easy to deal with.

VS

Fiora

Medium

Her kit as a duelist is absurd. Out dps you for sure. Still the matchup is winnable. Your W does not get parried completely and you can use your Q to negate most of her E. Still she is very punishable so let her push and that will attract your jungler. Pretty easy kill on a gank.

VS

Garen

Easy

His silence is pretty much useless against you. He is not really hard to deal with. At 6 be careful of fighting him cuz of his ult.

VS

Gnar

Easy

Same as akali. 


VS

Irelia

Easy

Early on she's kinda weak abuse that fact. Later on she starts to scale. 

VS

Jarvan IV

Medium

He hurts like anyother ad caster. The trick to winning the lane is just like darius. Remember his cds and avoid his knockup. All in if he misses. You win longer trades.

VS

Jax

Medium

Kind of an easy medium lane. Watch what he starts. If he starts e you start e. If he does not start e you start q and do what I said in Akali. If you effectively kite his e you will win trades. But late game you cant 1v1 a jax simple.


Imo alot of peole have trouble against Jax is because they either go for a dorans sheild start and attack speed runes. Run flat AD runes. His E cant block your 3 W attack so just use your combo and chunk him then kite his E and reengage with your E.

VS

Jayce

Easy

Same as Akali. Literally he's squishy af. Jump on him and heal back. Rinse repeat.

VS

Kayle

Easy

Same as akali. Just dont eat harass early on if she start e ing the wave right away stay back. Make the minion count even and jump on her in early levels.

VS

Lee Sin

Easy

Medium easy. His early game damage is too damn high but is really dependant on his Q. So bait that out and then trade.

VS

Lissandra

Easy

Same as akali. But after 6 her chain cc is annoying she is way more useful in teamfight. Poke with E then jump on her with ur stacked 3rd W and ignite you should be able to kill her.

VS

Malphite

Medium

Early on its easy. Just keep harassing with your 3rd auto and E. After he gets frozen heart killing him gets kind of impossible.

VS

Nasus

Easy

Trade with third W but dont shove your wave. You should be able to kill him easily in the first few levels. 

VS

Pantheon

Easy

Start Cloth 5. Watch him cry.

VS

Renekton

Medium

Use your Q to prevent his disengage. You have better sustain. Use it effeciently.

VS

Riven

Medium

This lane depends. Your mid game core should be the one against AD I listed above. Apart from that just jump on her if her abilities are on CD. She is really squishy. But beware when she has her combo up her burst is insane and that sheild can negate ur 3rd W.

VS

Rumble

Easy

Same as akali. 

VS

Vladimir

Easy

Read akali.

VS

Wukong

Medium

Like riven. Very cooldown reliant fight him when he runs out of CDs.
