Summoner Spells Back to Top

So as Dariosis-Jones you have two option:


Your good ol' TP top; the standard spells

12.png4.png

However... there is still the...


Scumbag bullshitass brokenass stupidass ignite Darius

dariuspassive.png x 5 with 14.png is just evil. I don't recommend this in ranked BUT if you see a 8.png2.png266.png or life-steal/sustain based champions, then you are good to go ham. Also, if you have a mid-laner like 99.png101.png161.png or anyone who goes TP mid due to longer range, then ignite would be alright.


14.png12.png  is surprisingly eh on Dunkios so i don't recommend it.

New Runes Back to Top

Masteries Back to Top

What! Fervor on Darius?!!??!?!? Well, think about it. You need to hit them to stack your bleed and only 4 melee auto attacks get you max fervor. Come late game with +14 Dmg per stack, THAT'S  A LOAD OF DAMAGE. Not to mention the bonus ad from 5 bleed. I would use Grasp of the Undying But honestly, it's just getting nerfed into oblivion.


Also, the 7% Armor pen. will make a huge help. More on that later :)

TL:DR, dariusexecute.png > dariuscleave.pngdariusaxegrabcone.png > dariusnoxiantacticsonh.png


- "R" is priority for one. True damage execution is just great. Remember, if they have 4 bleed on them ALWAYS apply the last stack before you dunk. You see, your passive "Noxian Might" gives Bonus AD (40 - 200). Since your ultimate scales with your bonus AD, when you get 5 stack you ult just got a little boost of damage which greatly helps.


- "Q" is your bread and butter. There are just so many uses to it. Healing, Wave clearing, poking, all that good stuff.


- W is great for the "Auto-attack reset" plus some more Auto-damage never hurts. You can use this to farm because it refunds ALL the mana and Half the cool-down.


- E is what lets Darius to snag people like he does. hook hook and hook some more. Plus his passive gives 5% armor pen PER LEVEL. That means a total 25% armor penitration at max rank e. More with this later on :D

Items Back to Top

Starting Items

    You can choose between shield and single pot OR sword and 3 pots. You decision. If they more damage based, then go shield. If they are tanky, go sword.
    Don't really recommend these. Never really used them because they aren't great on Darius.
    If you are against certain sustain champs and you are ahead in CS pick this up. It will help a load for super cheap! 800 for Grievous wounds is great at all stages.
    Don't forget these! speed is key!

Core Items

    Black clever is a CORE item. Get phage before war-hammer However if they are AP, then get Hex-drinker first always It helps a lot.
    Next up, you need some armor to help against them pesky AD Demacian scrubs. If they are full ad, then both are recommended.
    If they have some AP, then get one (or two) of these. Remember, if they are like a Veigar that can one-shot you, banshees will be better. If it is someone like Vlad or Cho'gath who does damage of time, then Visage would be better.
    Now hear me out. Let's do some math shall we. 5% from masteries + 25% from E + 25% from 5 black clever stacks + 45% from one of these 2. That means you are doing 75% armor pen to 75% of their total armor (More on the Armor section) Remember, if they more HP based, then get Lord's and if they have sustain, get Mortal's.
    If they are full AD or you are against a AA champion, roll with these. If not, Always pick up merc treads as they are just so effective.
    You standard Dariosis build for all of your fighting needs! Fair balanced overall
    When the enemies are more AD heavy, then roll with these. Emphasis on the omen and the grievous wounds of Mortal's.
    If they one of those heavy AP compositions, then this is the way to go. Emphasis on MAW and Banshee's

Situational Items

    You want to make someone literally have to bleach these eyeballs after the game? Think you can pull it off? Scumbag AD Critical Darius time! NOTE: don't try this at home kids.
    Can be replaced with one of the tank items if you need more AD
    What the hell dude?! He has no AP Scaling!!?!?!?!?!??!?! Never do this. Unless you the cockiest mofo around

Nothing hidden here :P not much else to say that isn't said up there

Aatrox

Medium

Recommended spells: 14.png4.png


Suggested items: 3123.png3033.png


Now this is an interesting one. For starters, Aatrox's passive is rather annoying. On the bright side, if you kill him with your Ult, you still get the reset plus the passive reapplies the 5 bleed is it went away. This is mostly based on HIS skill. Make sure to land your outer-q as it will heal you because Aatrox's sustain is a pain to deal with. similar to Tryndamere or Renekton just DON;T LET THEM EVEN TOUCH THE CREEPS. Smack 'em when they get too close to minioss. do an AA + W + AA to show em whos boss!

Notes: aatroxW.png hits like a TRUCK when its on purple mode so watch out and make to kill him as fast as possible. Watch out for his aatroxQ.png because if you go for your Standard Combo, he might retaliate afterwards.

VS

Azir

Hard

Recommended spells: 12.png4.png


Suggested items: 3156.png3065.png


Very seldom will you see this big bird top however it isn't a anomaly. He is rather annoying as he Zones you very well and it is very hard to pull him as he stays VERY far away. Rather sucky lane. Farm as much as possible and look to pick the enemy jungler or go bot. Teleport back to lane when necessary. Remember he has no burst so visage is better than banshees in this case.

VS

Cho'Gath

Hard

Recommended spells: 14.png4.png


Suggested items: 3123.png3156.png


He is so annoying! His sustain is so Aids and he is nearly impossible to kill by yourself. However, he is very reliant on his rupture.png (q) as it is what allows him to smack you with his vorpalspikes.png (e). You both have sustain but his is on minions versus your outer-q on champions. His feast.png (r) is a true damage execute like your dariusexecute.png (r) HOWEVER his is instant and yours must be cast. Pretty tough. Try your best to farm and make a bigger impact late game. However, very early you can still dish out some damage to him just be wary of his level 6 power spike.

VS

Darius

Medium

Recommended spells: 14.png4.png


Suggested items: 3070.png (Darn mirror match-ups)


WHAT! IMPOSTOR! KILL HIM!!!! 

Time to test your skills! Chances are if you have fervor, you can out damage him but remember that he is you so always be wary. Pure skill match-up. Good luck!


VS

Ekko

Medium

Recommended spells: 12.png4.png


Suggested items: 3155.png3102.png


This can go one of 2 ways;


If he goes tank, he becomes a tough nut to crack but you can kill him all the same. Care for his passive 3 stack as it slows you really hard and gives him speed which makes catching hard a hassle.

If he goes ap, he is a glass cannon with a huge fuck-up button. His ult is one of the best in the game. FAT AoE magic damage with a heal. This will dunk-ny you a lot so be ready for it. He is squishy though so remember that >:D

Notes: BEWARE THAT ekkoW.png. Don't get caught in it for both of his builds. It's lame

VS

Fiora

Medium

Recommended spells: 12.png4.png


Suggested items: 3123.png3742.png

Now she is interesting. I have been utterly demolished by a good Fiora before yet i have else banished several Fioras into the shadow rel. 2 key things to remember; 

1: Don't let her hit your vitals fiorapassive.png as they do % max hp true damage (which is BS btw). They heal her and are just bad to get hit. If you can spare the time, walk away from here till it drops off and walk back so it's at a different angle. 

2: Watch out for that fiorariposte.png as it will dunk-ny you too many times. It can completely change a fight sometimes. Keep the pressure on as she is a nimble fighter.

Notes: Make the french surrender! (like usual :P)

VS

Fizz

Medium

Recommended spells: 12.png4.png


Suggested items: 3155.png3102.png


Chances are that if he is top, he is going tank. That combined with his insane mobility from his fizzpiercingstrike.png and fizzjump.png make this lane not hard, but frustrating. He is still rather squishy so remember to erase that little shit out of history. just make sure not to over-extend. Also, don't tower dive this fish. He is hard to hit. In fact, if you feel like you cant land it that much (like I always feel), Max your W dariusnoxiantacticsonh.png first as it helps fight him. max q last as the heal doesn't increase. Remember that without q your wave-clear is much lower. your call though.

Notes: His troll poll fizzjump.png DOES NOT put your ult on CD but it does interrupt it.

VS

Garen

Easy

Recommended spells: 12.png4.png


Suggested items: 3036.png3053.png


DEMAGLIO! ~ Gnar

He is a demacian scum and make sure to make him your Bitch! Abuse the hell out of him in lane. Come late-game he gets hella tanky but hey, Armor pen fixes that real fast. Have fun and don't let him farm.

Notes: Don't stand in his garenbladestorm.png if you can. Also keep in mind about his 1.5 second garenslash3.png silence. AA during your downtime as you out-damage him in most cases.

VS

Gnar

Hard

Recommended spells: 12.png4.png


Suggested items: 3075.png3053.png


Annoying little shit! When he is in little boy form he is speedy as hell with like a 4 seconds q and is loaded to the brim with cc in his Big Boy form. Chances are he will just try to gnarQ.png you into oblivion when he is little. If you can even pull him he will just gnarE.png away. Very careful and try not to get poked.

Notes: His Gnar_W2.png + gnarR.png totals at 2.5 sec (at level 1 R) to 3 seconds (at level 3 R). Loads of CC deny's everyone.

VS

Gragas

Medium

Recommended spells: 12.png4.png


Suggested items: 3155.png3065.png


SO THIS GUY PROMOTES DRINKING BUT GRAVES CANT HAVE A CIGAR.....
Anyways, this drunkerd doesnt go top normally but when he does, make him your bitch. He can gragasbodyslam.png away if you dariusaxegrabcone.png him. Make sure his e is on CD 1st. It has a 12 second cooldown

Notes:
 download.png
WHY CAN HE HAVE A CIGAR RITO. WHAT THE HELL! #CigarsForGraves

VS

Hecarim

Easy

Recommended spells: 12.png4.png


Suggested items: 3022.png3025.png


Oooooooooooo a pony >:D He likes to build tanky and gets bonus AD from bonus movement speed. If only there was a champion able to slow hi.... oh wait dariusnoxiantacticsonh.png is 90% and dariusaxegrabcone.png is 40% :P I Say the suggested items because they give you tank but they slow him as well. Just a though. His hecarimw.png gives him some okay sustain but yours is much better. Send that pony back to MLP hell!


Notes: His hecarimramp.png needs to be hit like an AA (must click them while in range) so if you dariusaxegrabcone.png him just right it wont hit you. Granted, he will hit you will it right after but still it give yo the jump on him.

VS

Heimerdinger

Medium

Recommended spells: 12.png4.png


Suggested items: 3065.png3156.png

Raise you donger boys! If he went top then he must have some crazy courage as top is for the tanky big boys. He will try to zone you with his turrets but once they are down he has nothing left. He will try to stay very far away but if you hook him all he has is a ch1concussiongrenade.png which is hard enough to land as it is. Be very aware of your health as it can drop rapidly if you don't pay attention.


Notes: dariuscleave.png is very nice at clearing those pesky turretsh28gevolutionturret.png

VS

Illaoi

Medium

Recommended spells: 14.png4.png


Suggested items: 3033.png3110.png


Fuck tentacle porn! Illinois is just the definition of annoying. Not only is she a juggernaut aka Tanky bruisers but she also has the illaoiE.png to prevent you from farming. Her illaoiR.png can 100 to 0 you faster than you can realize and her illaoiQ.png frickin' hurts at all points. Do you best to farm and stay behind minions (assuming she doesn't Q the wave 24/7). A good Illinois will ruin your day. Make sure to delete her passive tentacles when you get the chance. she will want to protect them thought, so be ready.

Notes: Still bleeds like any one else. Small trades where you walk away unsaved are the best! quick dariusaxegrabcone.png , AA, dariusnoxiantacticsonh.png then back up. Mabye dariuscleave.png

VS

Irelia

Easy

Recommended spells: 12.png4.png


Suggested items: 3033.png3053.png

I'm not so sure why everyone is so scared of her. i have gone against her plenty of times and so long as she doesn't have a Jungler up her bum 24/7 then you are fine. Remember that her ireliaequilibriumstrike.png stuns when you are higher health so make sure to do as much damage as possible as fast as possible. Try to sneak in in autos when she tries to farm. Remember she if from Ionia and Noxus made Ionia it's bitch. Do the same to that knife phreak.


Notes: While it doesn't hurt a ton, her ireliatranscendentblades.png heals her for a lot which makes her hard to kill sometimes.

VS

Jarvan IV

Easy

Recommended spells: 12.png4.png


Suggested items: 3053.png3748.png

Ah king Jarvin. but all kings must one day fall. You job as the hand of Noxus is to slap that little Garen wanna-be right off his high horse. His jarvanivdemacianstandard.png + jarvanivdragonstrike.png is pretty easy to dodge if you pay attention. His passive does so okay damage but guess what? your Darius. He is rather tanky later on but so are you. Show him who's boss!

Notes: jarvanivcataclysm.png makes getting ganked a death sentence without wasting a 4.png so beware. Ward deeper than usual for this match-up.

VS

Jax

Medium

Recommended spells: 12.png4.png


Suggested items: 3512.png3026.png

So this baton twirler is tricky. His jaxcounterstrike.png blocks your AA's AND BLEED which is pesky plus he does mixed damage (Hence the Armour and magic resist suggested items). His jaxleapstrike.png let's him escape BUT should you get a hold of him he is a goner. His ult's active  jaxrelentlessassault.png is pretty useless agaisnt your 100% armor pen but remember that the 3rd hit does so nice damage on you. This is medium because he has a lot of ways to avoid your damage but you can still delete him like the rest. 


Notes: jaxcounterstrike.png could interrupt your dunk dariusexecute.png so beware for that.

VS

Jayce

Hard

Recommended spells: 12.png4.png


Suggested items: 3082.png3075.png

Ugh is he annoying. For starters, if you dariusaxegrabcone.png him he will try tojayceE.png you away then just bail. Then when he is in jayceR.png mode will try poke you into oblivion so over-all, just try to farm as best as you can. Remember that his cannon ball (q) does AD even though it looks magical. Build lots of armor as he typically doesn't build any.

Notes: very squishy so if you get him, eat his soul.

VS

Kalista

Hard

Recommended spells: 12.png4.png


Suggested items: 3075.png3143.png


Very VERY rare at this lower elo but she is a ranged adc which means Darius will have a bad day. she will Hop hop hop he way all around you till you have like a bajillion spears in you then her  kalistaE.png just kills you dead. However, if she gets hooked dariusaxegrabcone.png, she is still a squishy ADC so do your thing. On the bright side, unless she is butt buddies with the jg, then she has no ult and her w active is not that great so use that to your advantage.


Notes: Don't stand behind minions with spears in them. Her Q will transfer them.

VS

Kassadin

Easy

Recommended spells: 12.png4.png


Suggested items: 3156.png3065.png

Why this viodling is top is beyond me but he isnt super bad. He doesn't really damage you that much and shold you get a hold of him, he will bleed like anyone else. His riftwalk.png doesnt hurt a whole lot but it is annoying to catch him when has a flash every 4 seconds. Farm as much as tyou can and dont get nulllance.png'd into the shadow realem

Notes: If he netherblade.png's you, return the favor dariusnoxiantacticsonh.png

VS

Kayle

Hard

Recommended spells: 12.png4.png


Suggested items: 3065.png3156.png

God do I hate this little Satan angle. She does loads of damage just outside your dariusaxegrabcone.png range and if you catch her she just uses kayleQ.png on you and kayleW.png on herself. Not to mention her kayleR.png competently dunk-nys you :( she is no fun. i would rather go mid then fight her as trying to farm means getting slapped. You only saving grace is that early on she doesn't have her kayleE.png on permanently. Try to kill her during her down time.

Notes: Crying doesn't make the pain go away

VS

Kennen

Medium

Recommended spells: 12.png4.png


Suggested items: 3102.png3156.png

This little pikachu is a tad bit annoying but it is do-able. For starters, stay behind the wave to not get hit by his Q (kennenshurikenhurlmissile1.png). Keep an eye on his kennenbringthelight.png passive so you don't get hit by it. if you land a solid dariusaxegrabcone.png he will try to kennenlightningrush.png away so dariusnoxiantacticsonh.png as soon as possible to slow him and stop his escape. Remove dariuscleave.png from your combo as he will already be gone by then. Instead use Decimate as a farming tool and a poking tool.


Notes: kennenshurikenstorm.png Gets scary when he is getting jungler help. Watch out for that.

VS

Kha'Zix

Easy

Recommended spells: 12.png4.png


Suggested items: 3075.png2043.png


Now this little buggy shouldn't even be top. Unless he is a very confused jungler in the top lane then give this void spawn hell. He is super squishy almost all game and he typically goes full damage as opposed to your tanky damage buiild. Harrass him every chance you get. Buy a pink wards so you can smack him while he is stealthed.

Notes: Good timing means you can dariusaxegrabcone.png him mid flight of his khazixE.png. Also, even if you can't see him, your dariusaxegrabcone.png and dariuscleave.png can still hit him. Keep that in mind

VS

Kindred

Hard

Recommended spells: 12.png4.png


Suggested items: 3123.png3143.png


Why an ADC Jungler is in top is beyond me but she is an annoying little shit. If you pull her she just Hops kindredQ.png away. Her kindredE.png can hurt like a bitch later on and the slow is annoying. Farm as much as possible and roam a lot.


Notes: kindredR.png completely dunk-nys you so watch out

VS

Lee Sin

Easy

Recommended spells: 12.png4.png


Suggested items: 3742.png3033.png


Now i put this as easy but i can me more medium if he is skilled. Couple key things to remeber: he is very mobile so that outer dariuscleave.png might be hard to hit. Suggest maxing dariusaxegrabcone.png instead. he has some sustain but not enough. His blindmonkrkick.png can disengage you if you go too ham so be wary. However he bruises like a blind tomato so slice that martial artisting into sushimi


Notes: blindmonkqone.png doesnt hurt as much as you think. also if you time it right you can dariusaxegrabcone.png just before he gets out of range with his blindmonkwone.png. Now he has no escape >:D

VS

Leona

Easy

Recommended spells: 12.png4.png


Suggested items: 3083.png3036.png


Why is a support tank going top lane? whatever, slice her up like the rust of them. Beware her CC tho. her leonazenithblade.png into leonashieldofdaybreak.png into leonasolarflare.png lasts about 3 seconds if she lands it all.


Notes: her leonasolarbarrier.png makes her a tough nut to crack so wait for it be be on cooldown.

VS

Lissandra

Hard

Recommended spells: 12.png4.png


Suggested items: 3156.png3102.png


Bleeh i hate ice. Lots of slows, stuns, roots and her blasted escape lissandraE.png. disj out as much as you can and don't stand behind minions or you will be lissandraQ.png'd into the shadow realms.


Notes: lissandraR.png hurts regardless of the target. Don't stand in it.

VS

Malphite

Medium

Recommended spells: 12.png4.png


Suggested items: 3155.png3102.png


Rock on brother! So even though he is made of ricks you can still make him bleed like the rest. If he is AP and spams seismicshard.png he will run out super fast and if he builds tank it wont hurt that much at all. His malphitepassive.png will sheild a little bit so try to pop it with an auto attack first.


Notes: his ufslash.png makes him very hard to escape if you are getting ganked. His seismicshard.png STEALS your speed so watch out for that.

VS

Maokai

Medium

Recommended spells: 12.png4.png


Suggested items: 3156.png3065.png

Trees? Darius hates trees! Darius cuts trees with big Axe! Spam that dariuscleave.png move but be wary as hismaokaiunstablegrowth.png + maokaitrunkline.png has no telegraphing and can hirt. Stack MR and boom he is useless. maokaidrain3.png does reduce damage but your dariusexecute.png does true damage. Be careful as it could reduce your damage though.


Notes: maokaisapling2.png are super annoying so just back up when he throws one and let it agro the minions.

VS

Master Yi

Easy

Recommended spells: 12.png4.png


Suggested items: 3143.png3075.png


BAHAHAAHAHAHHA! This kid though he could go in your top lane!?!?!?!? he literally has nothing agaisnt you. He uses meditate.png and you pull him. He will try to alphastrike.png but you just heavily out damage him 24/7. Granted his highlander.png prevents slows which deny's your dariusnoxiantacticsonh.png slow but not your dariusaxegrabcone.png so you are good.


Notes: He might try to use his alphastrike.png to dodge your dariuscleave.png so fake it out 1st.

VS

Mordekaiser

Medium

Recommended spells: 12.png4.png


Suggested items: 3155.png3102.png


Interesting. The dinosaur comes out to play. You see since you are in auto attack range he is able to use his 3 mordekaisermaceofspades.png which actually hurts  alot if you let it hit you. Make sure to pay attention. Remember that he is rather weak without his mordekaiserpassive.png shield so be ready to hit him upand that they removed "will of the ancients" so he has not as much healing.


Notes: mordekaiserchildrenofthegrave.png gives him a tiny amount of health and so it might dunk-ny you if he is like the luckies man alive.

VS

Nautilus

Hard

Recommended spells: 12.png4.png


Suggested items: 3156.png3065.png


I'm not sure if it is just me but this guys just never takes any damage. His nautiluspiercinggaze.png shields so much of your poke and for some reason his nautilussplashzone.png does enough damage to be annoying. Don't go too ham.


Notes: nautilusgrandline.png + nautilusanchordrag.png + nautiluspassive.png stuns and roots for about 3 seconds later on so beware the CC chain.

VS

Nidalee

Medium

Recommended spells: 12.png4.png

Does she do a ton of damage? yes. Does she have tank stats normally? no. If he gets too close dariusaxegrabcone.png her and do as much damage before she inevitably hops away in cougar form. She will try to go for a javelintoss.png, hop on, cougar E + Q, hop off. Try to stop her/return the favor before she leaves.


Notes: She will try to spam her primalsurge.png if you hurt her too much.

Suggested items: 3123.png3143.png


Oh no! not Holaf! He heals for so much! If only they there was a cheap item to stop him from healing so mu.... oh wait, executioners calling >:D He can do nothing to you. Except trying to olafaxethrowcast.png you into the shadow realm, he has nothing on you. Abuse him all day.



Notes: olafragnarok.png stops your dariusaxegrabcone.png so care for that

VS

Pantheon

Medium

Recommended spells: 12.png4.png


Suggested items: 3075.png3143.png


Ah a true battle! the 2 most evil AD bruiser top laners in an all out battle of the gods! He will chuck his spears pantheon_throw.png, you chuck your dariuscleave.png. Remember that his q is not a skill shot and your is. Also remember to pop his passive pantheonpassive.png before you w otherwise it wont slow.


Notes: Don't stand in his pantheon_heartseeker.png because it hurts a lot

VS

Poppy

Medium

Recommended spells: 12.png4.png


Suggested items: 3082.png3748.png


She is an annoying little runt because she has that blasted poppyparagonofdemacia.png. If you wiff a hook then it's pretty hard to hit her with it's speed boost on plus the lower she gets the speed. However, your dunk dariusexecute.png is true damage so that armor means nothing if you got a 5 stack. Stay away from walls if you can. She might try to bait you over to a wall with her poppypassive.png which lasts for 5 seconds. Watch out for that and it is not the end of the world is she gets the shield.



Notes: poppyheroiccharge.png stuns for up to 2 seconds at max rank. 

VS

Quinn

Hard

Recommended spells: 12.png4.png


Suggested items: 3075.png3143.png


Why. Why why why!!!!!! she is like darius... but with range! This lane is pretty damn hard. You pull her and she just quinnE.png's away. She will pooke you into oblivion and there is no retaliation avilible. Sad times are ahead my friend. Also watch out for MACH 5 quinnR.png QUINN!!! 


Notes: Her quinnE.png has a range of 625 and her AA range is 525. To put that into perspective, your outer dariuscleave.png is a range of 425. Kinda out of luck there

VS

Rammus

Medium

Recommended spells: 12.png4.png


Suggested items: 3102.png3036.png


So this guy is only a medium because of how much armor he has. Honestly, at this stage he is completely basic and not that much of a challenge. He could puncturingtaunt.png but now he just stacked bleed on himself. Poke with your q to HEAL more than to do damage as he takes negative damage in his defensiveballcurl.png stance. His tremors2.png does some harsh damage but it is over 8 seconds 


Notes: His defensiveballcurl.png gives him 40 - 120 armor and his puncturingtaunt.png lasts up to 2.25 seconds at max rank. Also he is squishy like the rest early so abuse him them.

VS

Renekton

Easy

Recommended spells: 12.png4.png


Suggested items: 3123.png3075.png


Easy? Zach, are you out of your mind! Well, yes which is why i'm in bronze BUT you see what people fail to realize is this. Darius has the highest level 1 damage in the top lane. Renekton is pretty strong strong too IF HE GETS RAGE. Literally smack him every single time he goes for farm. Deny him for ever getting rage suddenly he is nothing. If you want a new pair of crocks, pick up and executioners calling early on to further deny his renektoncleave.png heal. Watch out for his renektonsliceanddice.png as he might use it to escape a dariusaxegrabcone.png but remember that he only get's one dash if he doesn't hit anything. 


Notes: Like 75.png, he gains 250 to 750 hp when he uses his renektonreignofthetyrant.png so it could dunk-ny you. Keep and eye out for that.

VS

Rengar

Easy

Recommended spells: 12.png4.png


Suggested items: 3123.png3143.png


Bad kitty! Go to your jungle and think about your life! If this little kitten comes top lane be happy as he is easy target for damaging. He has no hard CC (without his 5 stack passive) and no escape minus a rengarE.png diminishing 60 to 80% slow. He isn't tanky unless he builds some and he normally goes full damage with some crit (hence the omen). Be careful for his bush hops because while they do no extra damage, they get disorienting after a while. Overall, just send that kitten to the nuder!


Notes: Empowered rengarE.png roots for 1.75 seconds with the slow afterwards.

VS

Riven

Easy

Recommended spells: 12.png4.png


Suggested items: 3082.png3075.png


Oh ho ho ho >:D Riven is fun because 7.92 times out of 10, they are a cocky mo-fo who think they are all it. Little do they know, Darius demolishes her early on. She doesn't get any tank normally so she is a squishy swords-woman with a lot of CC. first things first. Don't be scared of her riventricleave.png as it does like 20 damage per hit early on. If you can, try to walk underneath her on that 3rd q to completely dodge the tiny know up. Her rivenfeint.png is the only annoying part about her as it blocks quite a load but fortunately it only dash a small distance. A good idea is to throw an Outer dariuscleave.png at her and see if he wastes her E. If she does then engages her with a nice dariusaxegrabcone.png into dariusnoxiantacticsonh.png into some AA. She might try to rivenmartyr.png to interrupt but if she does then she has no spells and is rip for the AA poking.


Notes: rivenmartyr.png stuns for a mere 0.75 so you can auto her once she is done is she doesn't riventricleave.pngriventricleave.pngriventricleave.png away that is.

VS

Rumble

Hard

Recommended spells: 12.png4.png


Suggested items: 3155.png3065.png


This little rodent doesn't like to give you an easy time. His rumbleflamethrower.png gets annoying if he gets all of it off and his rumblegrenade.png is super annoying if he lands it most of the time. However, not all hop is lost. For starters, his rumbleshield.png is puny early game and a nice dariusnoxiantacticsonh.png stops the movement speed. Try to heal from your dariuscleave.png and please BEWARE of his rumblecarpetbomb.png as it does a TON OF DAMAGE if you stand in it.


Notes: rumblegrenade.png each prong does up to a 15 to 35% each which becomes 30 to 70% if he lands both of them

VS

Ryze

Hard

Recommended spells: 12.png4.png


Suggested items: 3155.png3065.png


He is tough. Point and click root runeprison.png and point and click damage with MR reductionspellflux.png. This will be a pain in the as for you sadly. For starters, don't go too ham as he will return with going even more ham. Avoid getting AA into the Shadow realm and don't stand in the minion wave or else that E will hurt like a bitch. Beware of his desperatepower.png as it makes him super strong and always keep an eye on his ryzepassive.png stacks.


Notes: just farm. Don't try anything stupid please 

VS

Shen

Medium

Recommended spells: 12.png4.png


Suggested items: 3111.png3065.png


Despite being a Ninja with a sword dagger, Shen's core damage is in his shenvorpalstar.png procs. Since you get nice amount of HP normally his Q move hurts quite a bit. Make sure to get some MR to dampen the blows. Also watch out for his shenshadowdash.png into shenvorpalstar.png into shenfeint.png combo as it results into you taking damage. Make to retaliate after he does it as he will have nothing left. Make sure to watch if he carelessly uses his shenstandunited.png too as you could interrupt it.


Notes: His shenfeint.png blocks your dariusnoxiantacticsonh.png so don't use it till it expires.

VS

Shyvana

Medium

Recommended spells: 12.png4.png


Suggested items: 3075.png3025.png


Spyro! is that you! No? Darn. She is kinda annoying but not a whole ton. She is medium because she does okay damage with decent tank. Her shyvanaimmolationaura.png also literally turns  her into Spyro as she runs at you at Mach 2. However, you have 2 slows and nice armor pen so you should be alright if you are safe.


Notes: Her shyvanaimmolationaura.png gives her 30 to 50% more speed.

VS

Singed

Easy

Recommended spells: 12.png4.png


Suggested items: 3065.png3156.png


This kids is why you don't do drugs! This crack head isn't super scary though, he does negative damage early on however beware the annoying proxy singed! He is super easy to kill however he is a bit tricky to catch with his megaadhesive.png slow and his fling.png. If he tries to proxy you, go to him and stop it.


Notes: megaadhesive.png is a 35 to 75% slow so later on its sticky!

VS

Sion

Easy

Recommended spells: 12.png4.png


Suggested items: 3053.png3083.png


Ooooo spooopy sion! he's not that bad honestly. His crypticgaze.png loads of damage at full charge but you can just dariusaxegrabcone.png him out of it or just walk away and crypticgaze.png as he will be standing still. He will try to poke you with his enrage.png and it does slow for a bit so jst beware that and you will be good. He does get loads of HP later on so a  3036.pngis a good pick-up.


Notes: cannibalism.png stuns for 0.75 to 1.75 depending on distance. watch out for it. 

VS

Swain

Medium

Recommended spells: 14.png4.png


Suggested items: 3123.png3065.png


This guy is a bit tricky as he want to keep you well away from him all the time. For starters (as a swain main myself) his AA is complete shit so farming is tough for him. How about you make it tougher by pressuring him every time he goes in for CS. If he throws his swainbeam.png just walk out f it. Try to watch out for his combo which starts with the snare swainshadowgrasp.png. If he has it down now is your chance to go ham on him as he has no escapes. His swainmetamorphism.png heals for a ton IF HE HAS THING TO HIT so if the isnt a minion wave he is out of luck so you might want to dariuscleave.png that wave to stop him if you can.


Notes: ideal build is 1036.png2003.png into 3155.png into 3071.png into 3123.png into normal.

VS

Taric

Easy

Recommended spells: 12.png4.png


Suggested items: 3102.png3033.png


Them abs... that V-neck... those gems! He ain't that bad honestly. He is kinda tanky but... armor pen. He heals from imbue.png but... executioner's calling. He has a tarichammersmash.png but with a 2.5 second delay :\ It can Dunk-ny you but by the time he pops it its too late for him. Make sure not to let his minions hurt you as they will do the most damage.


Notes: dazzle.png lasts 1 to 1.5 seconds 

VS

Trundle

Medium

Recommended spells: 12.png4.png


Suggested items: 3083.png3068.png


It's simple! Just get sunfire to melt his ice and he is useless! I wish. He is actually very strong but not many people play him very much. For starters, his trundleQ.png is perfect for dueling which sucks for you. Never fight him in his trundleW.png as he gains mad buffs from. Poke with your outer dariuscleave.png and remember he only has trundleE.png to close gaps because he has no range (Minus trundleR.png that but you know). Try to avoid fighting him with his Ult on as it steals your tankyness so get ore hp than armor. You can still kill him so don't loss all hope.


Notes: trundleE.png slows for 30 to 50%

VS

Tryndamere

Hard

Recommended spells: 14.png4.png


Suggested items: 3143.png3075.png


Eh, i hate this guy. No matter what you do he will still farm and still kill you at some point in the game. He just slashcast.png's away when you pull him andthen he crits like a bajillion health all day and you try to dunk him and he just goes "HERDIDEEEER IM TRYND RAAA undyingrage.png And he dunk-ny's you so eh. Farm, poke with an AA + W. Walk away. Boring lane and scarey once he is fed.


Notes: Plop a 14.png on him with 5 bleed a few seconds AFTER he ults and even with his Q heal you might get him. Don't count on it though.

VS

Urgot

Medium

Recommended spells: 12.png4.png


Suggested items: 3083.png3139.png


Now rarely do i suggest using a scimitar but i helps to fight his ult. He is just going to urgotheatseekingmissile.png pew pew pew you all day and night so get you happy feet on! If he lands his urgotplasmagrenade.png don't just ran away as he will still hit you. In fact then would be a prime time to enage if the minions are in the way. Not super scary but he is ranged so ehhh


Notes: urgotheatseekingmissile.png has a range of 1000 which is hella far so just dodge it :D

VS

Vayne

Hard

Recommended spells: 12.png4.png


Suggested items: 3143.png3075.png


She is an ADC in the top lane with her vaynecondemn.png disengage so she is a pain. Don't get poked into hell and farm as much as possible. Hook er if she wiffs a e though.vaynecondemn.png


Notes: Her AA range is 550 which is 125 longer than your outer dariuscleave.png

VS

Vi

Medium

Recommended spells: 12.png4.png


Suggested items: 3082.png3053.png


She is a tanky tank-buster so she has power. But once she uses her viQ.png she has no escape so feel free to VI-olate her some AA + dariusnoxiantacticsonh.png combos.  Beware her viR.png + viQ.png CC chain because it is aids.



Notes: viE.png will hit you a lot if you don' pay attention and it HURTS so beware.


VS

Vladimir

Medium

Recommended spells: 14.png4.png


Suggested items: 3155.png3065.png


Grab a Hexdriker ASAP even before phage as it helps a load of this sack of blood. His damage is phenominal but his empowered vladimirtransfusion.png is tricky and it heals him for like a bajillion hp so keep the pressure on. Remeber early on he is weakest AND his vladimirtidesofblood.png damages himself a lot of keep and eye out for easy picks



Notes: vladimirhemoplague.png now heals him BUT after the damage happens so if you can kill him before it proc's, you are good.

VS

Volibear

Easy

Recommended spells: 14.png4.png


Suggested items: 3082.png3053.png


Roar said the dying volibear! This bear is not scary for you as he can BEARly handle all the damage you dish out. He will find it quite SHOCKing when go ham on him as his damage consists of AA's and his signature ass bite (volibearw.png). But you can out damage him so it doesn't matter! Do your thing


Notes: A well timed dariusnoxiantacticsonh.png stops a perusing volibearq.png. Also make sure his volibearpassive.png doesn't Dunk-ny you. 14.png can stop that. Investing in a 3123.png could be smart as well.

VS

Wukong

Easy

Recommended spells: 12.png4.png


Suggested items: 3082.png3075.png


Hoo Haa Monkey see monkey ASDASDADASD Much like Volibear, not much of a threat. His combo goes like: monkeykingnimbus.png > monkeykingdoubleattack.png > Mabye AA > monkeykingdecoy.png to escape BUT while he is invisible you can still dariusaxegrabcone.png and dariuscleave.png him. Not the easiest thing but he is rather squish early on so poke him into primate hell!


Notes: If he has god timing his monkeykingspintowin.png can interrupt your dariusexecute.png and it might dunk-ny. Never happened to me so I cannot confirm

VS

Xin Zhao

Easy

Recommended spells: 12.png4.png


Suggested items: 3082.png3075.png


"Find me an immovable object..." ~ Xin Pow. Darius can be this object. Xin does do some hefty damage to you if you don't pay attention but you can immediately return the favor if he goes in. Remember to use your dariusnoxiantacticsonh.png both as an AA reset but also defensively. When Xin goes for a xenzhaosweep.png > xenzhaocombotarget.png combo, use your W to slow him and walk away. Doesn't work if he has 2 or 3 autos off already but if you time it right i ave potential to save you.


Notes: xenzhaoparry.png might interrupt your dariusexecute.png but i don't think so. Must do more research.

VS

Yasuo

Medium

Recommended spells: 12.png4.png


Suggested items: 1031.png3143.png


So Mr. Anime is interesting because he is very squishy BUT is also very mobile. His dash yasuodashwrapper.png makes it hard to land your dariuscleave.png, but in a one on one fight, you can crush him. Care for his yasuoqw.png poke in lane. Treat him like the rest.

Who is this Bronze Sucker? (Zacklemore) Back to Top

Me? Well, I'm just a kid who loves me some Darius. I took a long break from league summer of 2016 but i'm now back into the swing of things. If you see Typos, please tell me but be aware i'm noting going to be checking the guide every day.
