Introduction

This is my first Guide. why did i choose Aatrox as my first champ to make a guide of? because many people have asked me how to build him and many enemy Aatrox have raged at me having more sustain in a 1v1 fight.

Why Aatrox?

Aatrox is not your common DPS champion. he has a bursty nature that makes you feel like you are actually playing a mid character. His combos leave the enemy completely disorientated and his W toggle turn fights into a slaughter. watch out tryndamere, you got your counter here, and he'll destroy you.
Here are some Pros and Cons

Pros:
-His W is the most broken sustain ability since nunu top's consume.
-He has a natural flash that helps you jump over even the thickest wall.
-His slow at level 1 makes the enemy be almost static as you ravage him
-Your passive is like Anivia's and Zac's, but with NO WEAKNESSES


Cons:
-Skillshots hard-ish to land
-Nerf incoming
-You might get carried away by his mightyness and get yourself killed a lot
-He wears lipstick

How to lane with Aatrox

Aatrox is incredible for trading. the sustain W provides makes every trade to be actually... free damage against the enemy. You hit the enemy, he hits you, you go to a minion, BAM! health's back and the enemy has to use a potion.

When you get your Dark Flight, use it to zone the enemy. he WILL be zoned. if he stays to fight, he'll die because of your passive or because of your W's uberdamage.

When you get your blades of torment, it's over. you make a swift combo of Q + E and the enemy will be served ready for dinner. eat him up, boy!
-Protip: Is he escaping? that's what ghost is for, dummy!

What's that? your ult is up? well, gg, mate. your ult will not only give you a HUGE attack speed steroid that will make you regain health faster, but it will make escaping almost impossible as your range will be increased.

Aatrox and the teamfights

Aatrox has an Alistair-tier initiation ability. wait for the enemies to gather up and Q them. then focus the enemy carries WITHOUT USING YOUR ULT. why is that? because by this time, the enemies are focusing you and you will die and waste your ult by using your passive. wait till you die to activate your ult and toggle off your W so you regain all your health back with your blood thirst. is an enemy escaping? blades of torment shall help you kill them.

WARNING. IF YOU FOLLOWED THIS GUIDE, BY THE TIME YOU JOIN TEAMFIGHTS YOU WILL HAVE A LOT OF KILLS. DON'T BE GREEDY AND GIVE OUT SOME KILLS TO YOUR TEAM. AATROX IS NOT A HYPERCARRY. I'VE BEEN 16/2 WITH AATROX AND I WAS MASSIVELY RAPED BY THE WHOLE ENEMY TEAM BECAUSE MY STARVING TEAM COULDN'T HELP ME DUE TO THEIR LACK OF FOOD.

Final tips

-Keep always an eye on your passive. don't do a YOLO play if you don't have your passive on.
-Ward your lane. despite what the champion spotlight says, his Q isn't good for escaping unless you use it to hop over a wall.
-Stay behind the minions. Aatrox is VERY weak against harassments
