Summoner Spells Back to Top

4.png  Flash is a great tool for initiating, chasing, and escaping. You probably will be using to reposition your self in team fights as you will use your q to initiate.

12.png 
Teleport is very good for top lane in higher elo. You should still take ignite if you plan to bull your lane extensively, but TP is a very viable option and probably the preferable one if you are comfortable without ignite.

14.png  
Mitigates healing as well does damage over time to ensure kills. Maximizes your damage in lane and kill potential.

VS

Akali

Easy

Fairly easy matchup, before 6 you are just way stronger, after 6 if you itemize well you should have no problems (hexdrinker core item, a pink ward to counter her), just take a little bit of care after 6 and try to deny her as much as possible before lvl 6.

VS

Cho'Gath

Easy
Chogath is a non-common lanematchup lately. You are way stronger them him 1v1, and you will still be stronger in a straight 1v1 situation the whole game (i suggest you to build botrk since his R gives him free max hp when u cant kill him and get fed).
The only think you need to be worried is about the enemys jungler, while cho is not the best duelist in the game, he has good cc (Q-> knockup/slow W-> silence) so you should be scared about ganks. So keep you lane warded and you shouldnt have any kind of problem vs cho.

VS

Darius

Medium

Well darius can be hard if you missplay something, the key of the lane is harrass him with your E, care about is E also (which is the pull) and as soon as he pulls you use your Q to escape. Remember you have sustain he does not, play arounds it.

VS

Dr. Mundo

Easy

Mundo is fairly week early on (even if his damage output is not bad at all) and he needs farms to get stronger.

You should be able to bully him in the first lvls and also you have sustain while he has not. Just try to dodge as much "infected cleavers" (Q) as possible because they somehow hurts.

VS

Fiora

Medium

(NOT UPDATED SINCE REWORK)

This matchup should be fairly easy IF you know how fiora works.

Fiora kits

Passive- Healt regen after autoattacking, nothing special not even a really hig value
Q- Double dash. High cd early on (16 / 14 / 12 / 10 / 8)
W- Counter attack (if is active she will reflet your next autoattack dealing magic damage). The passive also give her a bounch of flat ad bonus. High cd early on (10 / 9 / 8 / 7 / 6)
E- Mov and ats speed buff (120% ats at rank 5). High cd overall reset on kill and halved on assist (15 / 14 / 13 / 12 / 11)
Ult- Almost like master yi q that can strike you more times (it deals a lot of damage). (130 / 120 / 110)

That's all her kit now let's talk about the lanephase.
Fiora should be easy for you because she has no innate sustain beside her passive (that doesn't really add much) so early on you are stronger. The only thing you should care is about her W.
So as always poke her with E get her low then all in. Care to trade in melee range when you are both full hp, her kit is kinda strong for a straight 1v1. So try to trade carefully and abuse your sustain.

VS

Gangplank

Easy

Gp is pretty much a fighter like you but he's weaker in everystage of the game. You have tons of lifesteal/regen while he has only his W early on. Just try to not force hardengage early on because he's quite strong in a straight up 1v1 for the first few lvls. Control the lane, put down some harrass and get some items then stomp him.

One little trick vs him is to force his W then engage so he will not be able to escape you. (Like use your Q/Knockup and wait his W/oranges before using your E/slow)

VS

Garen

Easy

I'm not sure what i should put as "difficulty" i'll go for easy but to be easy you obv need to not "fuck up" with your skillset.

Let's point out 2-3 things about garen:

- He's an OK laner with good burst damage and some pretty tanky stats and skillset (W)
- He's vulnerable vs poke, since you can shootdown his passive just by making him take damage
- He has no really esape or hardengage tools
- His W gives him an active that reduce a 30% of the damage dealt to him (also he has 30% cc reduction), while his passive gives him bonus 20% mr/armor so it will became harded and harder to kill him when he will build some defensive items
- His ultimate deals MAGIC DAMAGE, some flat damage plus a percentage of your missing healt, so be really carefull about when to trade after his 6.

So as aatrox you should plan on lane control, i mean to catch you he needs to use his Q and as soon as he active his Q you should land your E (forcing him to take damage and eventually waste his Q on creeps).
You have a lot of sustain obv while he has his passive and maybe the hpregen due to his (probably) dorans shield start, so poke him every time his passive is about to come up (you can clearly see it by watching the "green things" around garen or just by clicking on him).
So try to keep him low and try to force his passive off anytime. Eventually you will be able to take him off.

So why you said you need to "not fuck up" with your skillset?

Well if you waste ur CD's he could be able catch you with his Q E combo it could be a pain, it's a lot of damage and it could put you in a vulnerable positon (low hp, easy gank for the enemy jungler). 

So in conclusion play smart and you should not have problem vs any garen.

VS

Hecarim

Medium

VS

Heimerdinger

Medium

VS

Irelia

Medium

Irelia is a strong toplaner overall. She's kinda weak early game, she's kinda weak before 6 and she's kinda weak pre-shop (before the first back).
So you can abuse her early on but you need to be carefull later. Once she get her W at rank 4-5 (also it depend on what she's building) she can match your sustain.
When trading make sure you take as less autoattacks as possible while her W is active, if her W is on cd, you can pretty much win all trades easily.
Remember also while fighting into minions that she can heal herself for a good amount of hp with her R.

VS

Jax

Medium

This matchup in a nutshell:
- Jax > Aatrox when : Jax has enough sustain to match Aatrox, Jax has equal farm, Jax has some core items.
- Aatrox > Jax when : Early game pre 6, before the first trip back, Aatrox denied/killed jax early on making him to fall way to behind in items/levels.

Almost like irelia, jax is fairly weak pre6 and preshop. If you can take enough advantage in the early lanephase then you can match jax without problems.
As always poke with E, and if his E (counterstrike) is on CD don't be afraid on going full man mode on him.

Another trick to get some advantage is to force jax E. Pretend you are going to 1v1 him and as soon as he use his E retreat (even if you take some AAs this is worth). Well after this you have 18 seconds while his E is on Cd and you can work around it.

VS

Jayce

Medium

He's ranged, he has both poke and disengage tools, you could have an hard time. Just farm as much as you can and wait for an opportunity (he waste his E or smt like dat)

VS

Kennen

Medium
The key moment when you should be able to kill him is lv 2. Hit lv 2 before him and just try an all in, he will mostlikely die or burn a flash and that's great because he will start to play way more passive (almost any kenne start toplane without wards, so without the flash he's forced to play passive).
Also early on (depending on runes) he has really low sustain. Anyway if you know the lane he's just more annoying then a real threat, but still take care.

VS

Lulu

Medium
Lulu is a strong laner, you can abuse her early on (first levels) if you have ignite. If not your goal will be to farm as much as possible and try to stay relevant in the game.

Not much to say about this matchup, dont get baited by her ult/e (shield) and play safe. Wait for the jungler and try to make smart plays over the map with your tp when possible.

VS

Malphite

Easy

Even though he has an Attack Speed debuff, you'll be maxing E and you won't have any trouble. Not only that, if he spams E on you, he'll go oom and won't be able to kill you, which pretty much makes him lose the lane right there.

VS

Maokai

Easy

This guy is pretty much like Malphite. His early levels are pretty meh, and yours are very good. You can easily abuse him a lot in laning phase, because the points where he shines most is teamfights. If you manage to starve him in laning phase then you should have no problems agaisnt him later on.

VS

Nasus

Easy

Stomp him the first levels and make him regrets to even think about the lategame, he has no escape (nasus mostlikely will pick ghost) you are way way way stronger then him.

VS

Olaf

Medium

VS

Pantheon

Medium
Let's start with pointing out how pantheon works and the thing you need to ABSOLUTELY remember about him.

- Pantheon passive will block the next autoattack that will deal more then 40 damage (it means that his passive wont block the minions AutoAttack, but it will still block the cannon minions AutoAttack

- His passive get reset after 4 AA or skills (you can also read how many stack he does have by clicking on him)

- His passive GET A FREE RESET after using his W (stun)

- The passive on his E give phanteon freecrits when his enemys are lower then 15% hp, the q also can crit

Now get all this 3 things stuck in you mind, pantheon could be a really easy matchup or a really hard one depends on who is playing him.
Let's say you still should be carefull, and you should get him low with E and all in when you are certain sure about it.
Remeber you have sustain, he does not so just trade carefully.

VS

Renekton

Medium

He has more burst then you early on, you have more sustain. It all comes about skill - predictions - ability to get advantage of minor mistakes.

This lanes anyway is in favour of renekton early on, and it will get better for you with some levels and items. Unless the renekton your facing is a bad player you aim for this lane should be going even in cs.

Also be really carefull of renekton lv 6, he's a beast and a player who can take full advantage of his fury mechanics will wreck you.

VS

Rengar

Medium

Rengar is quite strong early on, you should be carefull for his lv 2/6.

Rengar can go 2 ways:
- full ad: you can kill him this way if you are carefull enough about his killpotential/damage.
- full tank: you should focus on farming because if he's barely good he will never dies to you

If you are in trouble you can consider to buy an early chain vest. (rengar does only physical damage besides his W).

If you are in trouble ask for some ganks and be carefull TO NOT GET JUKED by Bushes/Minions.

VS

Riven

Medium

While riven is not an hardcounter for Aatrox you can still have some problems.

Riven burst is higher then yours but she has no inbuilt sustain.

This lane is almost always decided by the mechanical skill of riven and also by your knowledge about her cd's.

Riven's Q -> 13
Riven's W -> 11 / 10 / 9 / 8 / 7
Riven's E -> 10 / 9 / 8 / 7 / 6
Riven's R -> 110 / 80 / 50

This are the cd's of riven and you should remember them.

Let's talk about the lane, she's just stronger then you but as i said before you have sustain so you should STILL be able to hold your lane and farm without any troubles. If you feel like the riven you are faceing is "bad" you can also force some trade in lane but it's still risky since she has so much mobility. Another thing is NEVER use your Q as an offensive skill or you will be fucked since you have no other escapes.

Be aware on the lv 6, she's just a powerhouse once she reach 6.

If you have troubles ask your jungler to gank and play passive.

VS

Rumble

Easy

Stomp him as hard as you can you should be able to since he has no disengage and no sustain. Just take care and not underestimate the damage of his Q E in danger zone.

VS

Ryze

Easy

VS

Shen

Medium

Shen is always a scary toplane in general (if he get some early kills/freefarm it would mean you will not be able to kill him). Early on you are way stronger so as most of the other matchups you are supposed to go a bit aggro early on and try to force something (either a firstblood, or a recall so you can taka some advantage). Remember then (still depends on runes) shen as an hard time lasthitting under turret early on.

You are generally stronger for all the lanephase but not underestimate shen damage output

Also remember that you CAN stop his ultimate with your Q and if you are not able to stop him you can still push fairly fast and take the tower to compensate his roaming.

VS

Shyvana

Medium

VS

Singed

Easy

Aatrox is a bully laner early one while singed is fairly week, stomp him early on, try to deny him as much as possible. If singed can't have a good transition from early to mid/lategame he's gonna be totally useless.

VS

Sion

Easy

You are supposed to go overaggressive, early on he has no sustain (he become a sustain monster after level 6 with ulti), he also have no real escape so you can bully him early on. As always poke him with E and with the 3rd W if you can.
The only thing to take care off is his ulti and his E, he has shittons of ad early on so still be carefull.

VS

Swain

Easy

VS

Teemo

Hard

Teemo is the #1 nightmare for any fighter in this game, and obv Aatrox is not an exeption.

You still have the same small window i talked about in some other matchup if you can lv up faster then him at lv 2 and get him. He will have still no blind so it could be your time to take a kill.

Other then that, this is a really scary matchup, so ask your jungler to gank. Teemo is really easy to gank pre6 due to your CCs

In anycase if, for some reason, you are forced to play without help from your jungler just try to farm as much as possible (even just lasthit with your E) and engage only if 1) He wasted his Q on creeps 2) You are full or almost on healt 3) You can land your E.

Don't ever try to waste your Q to harrass him, you will have no more escape and he will kite-back you with his auto + his W and you will eventually be low or dead or without passive :P.

VS

Trundle

Medium

easy early game, hard late game

VS

Tryndamere

Medium

I don't think trynda is a counter to Aatrox but if you play this lane careless you will be in trouble, so i marked this matchup as hard.

You are stronger them him pre6, but if he gets his fury bar full he can be really scary. Just take always a look on his fury bar. After 6 he has a "better revive" then you, since you passive cooldown is kinda long while his ultimate is not.

You can fight him when his fury bar is not full or close to be.

This lane can go either ways, early on you are stronger, with same farm and after some levels trynda is stronger. So try to shout him down early. Also a good thing is to push first levels and call your jungler to dive him. (you have you passive, should not be hard) and this will put him in a terrible situation when he basically lost his early game, and you will be able to bully him forever.

VS

Vladimir

Medium

Same matchup as singed ones.

Aatrox is a bully laner early one while vladimir is fairly week, stomp him early on, try to deny him as much as possible. If singed can't have a good transition from early to mid/lategame he's gonna be totally useless.

The main difference between singed and vlad is, vlad is a damage dealer, while singed is more tanky oriented, so it will be even harder for you to lane vs a farmed vlad later on.

VS

Wukong

Medium

I tagged this matchup as medium but it could be hard/easy depending on your knowledge.

So like some notes let's start about wukong cd's and how u can get rid of him:

Passive: Wukong's armor and magic resistance are increased by 4/6/8 for each visible nearby enemy champion. It doesn't really change your lanephase, it could be scary in a 5v5 teamfight

Q : 9/8/7/6/5 - Remember also, Q has more range then a standard autoattack (usually maxed as second) and it DECREASE 30% of your armor
W (clone) : 18 / 16 / 14 / 12 / 10
E (gapcloser/atssteroid) : 8
R (Spintowin) : 120 / 105 / 90

How do you approach lanephase.

Wukong early game deals more damage then aatrox but you have sustain while he does not. So your aim would be as always 1) Harrass with your E 2) don't force traid unless he's low hp 3) Sustain back all the damage you take 4) DON'T GET JUKED :p

In terms of a straight 1v1 i feel like you scale better then wukong, while he's more a teamfight oriented champ. So try to go ATLEAST even in lane, and try to play the "Harrass with E and eventually all-in when low strat" as well as possible

VS

Yasuo

Medium
Yasuo is usually played midlane but it's not that bad in top aswell.

Yasuo is kinda strong the first 2 levels when he can charge his "Estacks" (E is the dash, every stacks add 25% of the base damage, up to 4 stacks) on minions. So be careful first levels when the wave comes. 
After the first levels you should be in a good place to trade with him. Yasuo is really dependant on items, he will hit huge power spikes after buying statikshiv/ie or shiv/botrk.
Try to keep looking at his Q stacks aswell to know when he will have the knockup avaible and remember that he can windwall your E.

I would say this is a skillmatchup in the lanephase.
