Threat Champion Notes

Maokai Oh my gosh this lane is embarrassingly easy... Use Thirst when he ults and Price when he doesn't. Simple as that. Oh, kill him early, cause he's a tank. Yeah.

Nidalee This one is like Maokai, very easy. Burst her early, poke with Blood Price, GG.

Introduction

Hello! Welcome to my guide, this is my first guide so please go easy on me.

Abilities Discussion

You do not need your passive filled all the time. Prioritize healing over filling blood well.

Don't overestimate your passive, it's not as OP as a lot of people think. But, if it's down in laning and they're pushing up, play passively unless you know you can burst them before they can counterattack.

Do not miss your Q. It is essential to setting up your combos, do NOT throw it away randomly for hopping walls unnecessarily.

In teamfights, initiate by bursting down their mid/ADC. If they start focusing you, switch to Blood Thirst and just start hitting **** and sustaining off of anything and everything.

In lane, use Blood Price whenever you can poke the laner, but ALWAYS use it when you engage.
Use Blood Thirst when you are in a fight that's being dragged on, but use Price to execute when you know it will kill them.

Pros / Cons

PROS

    VERY good at catching out targets and killing laners quickly
    Even when your burst falls off late game, your sustain will still be godly, because you're Aatrox!
    Can carry easily if you get lots of kills in early - mid game
    Very high poke damage
    Can easily kill squishy junglers that come to gank

CONS
    Becomes basically useless if you fall behind
    Relies on getting fed in lane
    Burst falls off late game, except against squishies
    Can be kited fairly easily
    Dies from ganks easily early
