Threats to Darius with this build
|Yasuo||EASISIEST MATCHUP OF MEH LIFE. q, q, Q , Q ,Q ,Q , E,W ,E ,W , E ,w ULT!|
Darius is the dunkin donuts of league. With his high burst and his tank potential he has the ability to win games for his team. His q gives him alot of advantage in fights as it gives him alot of health. His ult is top notch as he has the ability to one shot there ad carry :3
I like to go armour pen reds on darius as it allots him to bully in lane with his e passive and armour yellows and magic resist blues for a bit of defence in lane. I like to go movement speed quints as it allows him to hunt down his prey and get in range to use his abilitys and auto attack for the strongest ult possible.
I like to go 21/9 as it makes a more aggressive lane and you get to punish the laner with your q and the damage and health you get from it. i dont like to go any utility mastaries because that is just plain dumb XD. I reccomend going the mastaries i have put to play aggressive but go 9/21 if you wish to play more safe vs ur opponent.
A good idea is to rush black cleaver as it gives him movement speeed to gain more blood stacks with auto attacks and titanic hydra gives alot of damage for your abilitys and enough tank to sustain the damage. the rest of the build should be full tank as late game you will not be doing much other than tanking for your carrys.
I like to max q first for the damage and the healing on it as it is your best ability for 1v1ing and team fighting. you max e 2nd for the passive as it gives you alot of amour penetration and then w because it is only usefull for a bit of extra damage and a slow.
Take flash and teleport normally for the map presence and the ability to out lane you oppponent but if you wish to go for more lane domination then you take flash and ignite as it gives you alot of damage and works well with your bleed stacks to slowly end your laner.
Darius is a really strong pick for ranked at the moment as he is a fun champion and he has the ability to carry games as he is a good tank for your team but does alot of damage early game to shut down the enemy top laner and enemy team if he uses his teleport to roam to teamfights and drake.
Pros / Cons
Good early game damage
Lots of healing with his w
A very strong tank
Very good bruiser and good at shutting down enemy laners.
HE ****ING DUNKS
If shutdown he can be very weak and cant get back up on his feet
If your team are braindead you cannot win the late game.
Not much mobility for enemy jungler ganks.
Creeping / Jungling
Farm with ur auto attacks and q
DO NOT ****ING JUNGLE AS DARIUS THATS COMPLETE TRASH.
Darius can utilise his teleport for mass amount of map precence as he does tons of damage in the early game and sits in front of a teamfight to do tons of damage while tanking damage for the teams carrys.
