Aatrox, the darkin blade
Aatrox is a legendary warrior, one of only five that remain of an ancient race known as the Darkin. He wields his massive blade with grace and poise, slicing through legions in a style that is hypnotic to behold. With each foe felled, Aatrox's seemingly living blade drinks in their blood, empowering him and fueling his brutal, elegant campaign of slaughter.
The earliest tale of Aatrox is as old as recorded history. It tells of a war between two great factions remembered only as the Protectorate and the Magelords. Over time, the Magelords won a series of crushing victories, leaving them on the brink of obliterating their sworn enemy forever. On the day of their final confrontation, the Protectorate army found themselves outnumbered, exhausted, and poorly equipped. They braced for inevitable defeat.
Just when all hope seemed lost, Aatrox appeared among the ranks of the Protectorate. With but a few words, he urged the soldiers to fight to the last before throwing himself into battle. His presence inspired the desperate warriors. At first, they could only watch in awe as this unknown hero cleaved through their enemies, his body and blade moving in unison as if one being. Soon, the warriors found themselves imbued with a potent thirst for battle. They followed Aatrox into the fray, each fighting with the furious strength of ten until they had won a most unlikely victory.
Aatrox vanished after that battle, but the Protectorate army's newfound fury did not. Their surprising triumph led to many more until they were able to finally return home victorious. Their countrymen hailed them as heroes, but though they had saved their entire civilization from destruction, darkness lingered in the mind of each warrior. Something within them had changed. Over time, their memories of battle faded, only to be replaced with a grim revelation: their acts of heroism were, in fact, brutal atrocities committed by their own hands.
Tales like these appear among the myths of many cultures. If they are all to be believed, Aatrox's presence has changed the course of some of the most important wars in history. Though these stories remember him as a savior in dark times, Aatrox's true legacy may be a world filled with conflict and strife.

Pros and Cons
Strong burst Very squishy compared to other solo champs
Does well in 1v1 Well lose a lot of poke fights if you use w wrong.
Passive is like a nerf GA
Fun too play
How to use you w to your advantage! If the enemy champ is harassing you a lot i would stick with your blood thirst. But if he is playing passive i would auto hit twice switch into blood price and attack then back off and repeat. Why not max your q? Well it because I personally like the slow and a long range rather then my q.
Ad Build- I start off with the cloth armor because it gives armor against champions like Riven and sustain with health pots. Stat. Shiv is amazing because it increasing your attack speed and the burst is also amazing with your uti and w. Omens is also very good in team fights using it with you e might give your enemy a hard time.
Ap build- I start with the boots and pots. Why boots? Because if you facing against Kennen you need to dodge his Stars. Spirt visage? Why the HELL NOT MAW? Because the passive increases your w Blood Thirst and the cd is good too.
