Threat Champion Notes
1
Aurelion Sol Easy. Start W then Q and kill this guy. He can't do anything because you are melee and his passive and W don't do anything to you. Ask you jungler to camp this guy to get both ahead and stomp the game.
1
Shen Shen, please. This guy is the early game snowballing tank anti-tank with his % HP Q. Start W and harass him with blood price as much as possible. At level 2 get Q and go in for extended trades, and at level 3 he most likely try to hug turret. All-in him there and get that kill.

Introduction

Hello and welcome to my guide to Aatrox, The Darkin Blade. I am from EUNE server I have been playing him since his release in 2013, when he was literally broken. As of right now, he is the champion which has the most mastery points in my main account, around 50k. I have tried several builds and playstyles and I believe this is the best build and playstyle as of right now, patch 6.9. I have played him in jungle, top, mid adc once (didn't work out well) and support.

I real like this kind of ADC rune page because it gives Aatrox everything he to do well in the early game. Quints of AS gives Aatrox a great boost of attack speed to jungle clear and sustain in lane because of his W Blood Thirst. All the others should be self-explanatory. Change the armor seals with flat HP seals if you want to minimize your early game squishiness.

Masteries

I really like this mastery tree for the top lane. It gives you that all-in potential when you have full stacked Fervor of Battle . You could also go for Strength of the Ages in the top lane and the jungle because of the 15% tenacity the tree offers and the fact that you get HP from minions and 300 free HP.

You usually want to start and max E first but if you have trouble in lane against poke, you can max Blood Thirst first.

Spells

Take flash 100% of the times. No excuses.

Map pressure, and presence in team fights. Don't use it to go back to lane.

When jungling, Smite is necessary
