Not Updated For Current Season
The masteries shown here are not yet updated for the current season, the guide author needs to set up the new masteries. As such, they will be different than the masteries you see in-game.
Why build crits on Aatrox you might ask. Well one day I was playing Master Yi and was like, I get nuked until I get any type of sustain item. What if Master Yi had built in sustain and Attack speed?
That's when I remembered a little champ called Aatrox. So I built him like Yi, and haven't gone back since.
Why Build Aatrox This Way?
Here I will explain why these Items work SOOO well on Aatrox.
Rangers Trailblazer (Devourer)
-Attack Speed (YES PLEASE)
-Bonus Magic Damage on Hit (Stacks With W (Blood Price))
-AOE auto attacks (faster clears, more first attack dmg to nuke down squishies, and stacks with W (Blood Price))
-Attack Speed (OOOO BABY GIMME THAT)
-All that extra AD to put that crit chance to work
-25% Crit chance!
-Beautiful Passive. Just makes me cri ever tim
-Life steal on top of your own lifesteal
-Attack Speed (WITH THIS AND FULL PASSIVE, YOU HAVE CLOSE TO 2.5 ATTACK SPEED)
-Even MOAR Damage
-An active that can turn the tides of any fight
-20% extra HEALS on your Passive, W, and the lifesteal from BoRK
-Magic Resist because now the only thing that can stop you is a burst mage (Screw LeBlanc)
Berserkers Greaves (Homeguard)
-That Movespeed tho
-You should be at 2.5 attack speed with a full Passive Bar!
How to play Crittrox
Step By Step Fasion
Farm that jungle like a mofo and stack that Rangers Trailblazer as much as you can
Gank only when you know that your team will follow up, and only gank when you have passive
When You get shiv, it is time for some dragons, farm that shiz and get back in that jungle
Keep that farming up, and only gank if your lanes that are babies need a little help from Papa Aatrox (rito skin pls)
When you get IE, jump on those squishies with Q, if they try to orbwalk outta your flurry of damage, pop that ult and get that auto attack range to say a nice go to hell to all those kalista's, lucians, graves, and ezreals.
Notice that there is no step 6
Split push like you're an udyr on steroids, cuz, you are an udyr on steroids
Remember that you can easy get squishies, and have awesome teamfights, so get back to that team and show them how many drugs you took in the jungle
Is this a Troll Build?
Maybe. But you cant complain when you have a game like this with the same core items
The crits stack on both stances of Aatrox's W, so with a crit you are doing upwards of 800 damage every auto attack. Not to mention the extra damage from the rangers trailblazer, people will not be able to build against you.
Thank you for taking the time out of your day to read this! now try this build in a few games and see what you think for yourself! :D
