The benefits of the right blade build.
With this build you will be the most dominate champion on the map. +16 movement speed, +295 attack damage, +30 life steal, +90 attack speed, +35% reduction of the duration of stuns etc.., +20 cdr, +20 crit chance, +15 health regeneration, +200 health, +45 armor pen. You get alot from the build. I chose the spells teleport and cleanse because you don't need flash, you have your Q. So when you farm enough you can go B and teleport right back with a blood thirster like you never left your lane. cleanse because u are a mass healer, all mass healers require cleanse. dr mundo even said so. also it will stop people who ignite you. If you notice I have no boots. Boots are the biggest waste of money in the game, i mean, if you area women. then buy yur shoes. this build gives you +16 movement speed, you run at 400.
Start off with your E. You want to max that out first and poke as much as possible with it during the lane phase. Max out your W next. Then your Q. I find that maxing out the E first is most beneficial because it puts a stop to people who think they counter you. Like Teemo, Pantheon and Jax. Also it allows you to farm faster.
Start out with a dorans blade or long sword. your choice. i dont care. Get enough money to go B for wards, cuz thats what smart people do. Teleport back. Place wards. rush a BF sword. Turn it into a blood thirster. Next, get the zephyr. This is a effective item for aatrox. I like to get a static shiv right after. reason why? **** you. thats why. If you notice more team fights going on at this point in game, get a hydra instead of a shiv. Then get the shiv. After that I get the black clever. Other beautiful item for aatrox. Now at this point in the game you can decide on a last whisper or ruined king.
For your runes. all attack damage. round these parts we call that first blood runes. dont be a *****. get first blood.
