Aatrox takes fatal damage he is healed for the amount currently in his resource bar, landing a fatal blow on him while the resource bar is low will result in him reviving with a lower amount of health.
Unlike other reviving champions,
Blood Well revive is rapid and grants him invulnerability during this time which allows him to quickly rejoin a team fight after being dropped to critical health.
When fighting him, consider his resource bar as part of his own health. (For example, killing him with a full
Blood Well will make him return with a large portion of his hitpoints and if the fight was closely matched, he will most likely kill you.)
Aatrox casts
Dark Flight towards your location, avoid being knocked up by moving away from the center of impact.
Most players will aim the ability right above you or right behind you. So, moving closer to Aatrox at the time he casts
Dark Flight will likely make the skill miss you.
In lane, zoning
Aatrox out of combat will quickly drain out his
Blood Well making him a much more vulnerable target.
While he can be built as a fighter,
Aatrox is primary a melee ADC, like
Fiora orMaster Yi. These champions are devastating as long as they are able to attack, but are extremely vulnerable to crowd control, and while
Blood Well helps him survive, he is no exception to the rule, as a well landed stun or snare can severely hinder his combat abilities.
Inflicting Grievous Wounds can reduce his healing from Blood Thirst.However, Grievous Wounds does not affect the health he regains from his Aatrox'sBlood Well. Without ability power
Massacre damage is not spectacular, but the most dangerous part is the large attack speed and range bonus he gets.
The ability lasts long enough for most teamfights, but baiting
Aatrox into using the ability to commit to killing you before a fight breaks out will remove the strong threat the ability presents in a teamfight.
However, it's recommended you only do this if you are a very hard to kill or catch champion, such as Lulu,Zac,Singed, orKarma.
Aatrox is auto attack reliant for most of his damage and survivability, reducing his attack speed by purchasingRanduin's Omen orFrozen Heart can help reduce both of those components greatly.
