Welcome to my guide

NOTE: This guide is not really recommended for every game, it is just a really fun way to play Aatrox . This is not a full guide yet.This is a guide i wanted to make because i have been having a lot of fun while plying Aatrox like this and i wanted to share it. This is my first guide and it will propably not be the best. It is not the best guide but i still hope that you enjoy it!

I will improve this guide a lot, so right now it is not 100% done.

Pros and cons


* Really good sustain from his W Blood Thirst / Blood Price.

* Aatrox is a really strong champion who is hard to counter.

* There is only one item that counters Aatrox that item is Warden's Mail.

* His Q Dark Flight is a good escape and gapcloser.

* His passive Blood Well makes it possible to win fights that would otherwise have been impossible to win.

* Aatrox is hard to counter.

* Not too long cooldowns.


* With this build Aatrox is quite squishy.

* If you are playing against a ranged champion for example Vayne or Nidalee you will have a hard time getting the sustain that you need.

* Aatrox is kind of op so he will propably get nerfed.

* The items that you need are quite expensive so you need to farm good and get kills.

* He is a melee champion so he can be zoned if you are up against a champion with good poke or ranged sources of damage.

Summoner spells

For the first summoner spell i picked Ghost because Aatrox sometimes needs the exrta movement speed to get kills. Flash is also a good pick but Aatrox already has Dark Flight that works almost like Flash so he does not really need a second one.

And for the second summoner spell i picked Barrier it is good on Aatrox because if you are fighting a enemy champion that deals more dps = damage per second than you Barrier might come in handy. For example if you are fighting against a Fiora both of you are droping low on health just use Barrier and when you're Barrier is up you still have the lifesteal that increases your health. But if she has Ignite make sure that you use your Barrier at a good time. After she has used the Ignite you should use Barrier but if you are dropping way to low use it to escape if you know that you cant win the fight.
