Introduction

Hello all. This is my first guide. So take it easy!

I'm going to explain why I choose to build Darius, the way I do. I can't really give you alternates because I'm not quite that good. Of course people have their opinions and that's fine. I just like to build him this way.

Pros / Cons

Pros

  • Decent Attack Damage
  • High Attack Speed

  • Good Critical Chance

Cons
  • Ok Health
  • Low Armor

Mastery Trees

I like to go 27/3/0.

For the damage boost, attack damage, armor pen, and life steal.

Skill Sequence

I like to go in a 1/3/2 order, getting my ult at 6/11/16 of course.

Decimate is a pretty good skill. It's got decent range, area damage, and a good harassment skill for holding your lane.

Crippling Strike is especially good when they have blood drops around them because it practically become usable in a second, doing decent damage.

Apprehend is a great skill to get up for its armor pen. I know how most people only get it once at the beginning for the grab ability, but I like the armor pen it gives you as you level it up.

Noxian Guillotine is just amazing. Wait for the blood drops to stack, use it, and get it back.

Runes

Here I went with:

Greater Quintessence of Intellect x3 for the little bit of mana boost to use Noxian Guillotine that 1 extra time.

Greater Mark of Strength x9 for that Attack Damage boost at the beginning.

Greater Seal of Resilience x9 because Darius needs that armor boost for this build, for he has no defense items.

Greater Glyph of Alacrity x9 for a better Attack Speed at the beginning as well.

Items

I'm not going to go in depth about why I choose these items. But I can tell you I use them for the Attack Damage, Attack Speed, and Life Steal.

Of course you can exchange any of these for an armor piece or for some mana, for the Noxian Guillotine of course.

Summoner Spells

I prefer:

Ghost, I mean c'mon, Darius isn't exactly good at getting away, but I use this instead of flash for if my enemy's run.

Ignite for the sole reason of stopping people from healing too much as their health gets low.

Summary

Well, this is my guide on how I use him. Of course you don't have to use this, and might have something better, but I like it.
