Aatrox, the Darkin Blade emerges from the shadows of history to slake his thirst for blood and battle. This deft warrior cuts down his foes and drains their life force with his blade. Aatrox’s abilities cost health to cast.
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.
"Some fight for honor, some fight for glory. It matters only that you fight."
Why Pick Aatrox?
He Has 60% Winrate
-He gets picked because he can hold top lane just fine, he can split push good and killing him is hard.
-Hevely sustained in jungle, you dont need to recall
-When he dives and distracts a backline, he dies without actually feeding because he buys his team enough time to kill the enemy frontline while he revives.
With Guardina Angel he gats 3X revives, hes a monster
Pros and Cons
Insane sustain, espicially under half health.
Pretty nice ratios.
Strong passive, in particular the 50% attack speed buff when its full. (This combo'd with his ult gives a incredible +100% attack speed, which is VERY strong.)
Can be played viably as almost every role.(Top, Mid, and Jungler are the big ones for me. Maybe ADC will work)
Fairly long cooldowns
Relies heavily on AAs
Gets hard countered by CC (Like Corpse2222 said, Teemo is a prime example. Basically anyone that can keep him from getting his sustain in lane.)
Without his Q he can get kited.
His health costs can be steep early.
Lowish starting health.
