Threats to Darius with this build
|Garen||Your damage is superior to Garen's but his tankiness is superior to yours. Your kit is all-around better than his.|
Oh hi there, didn't see you! I play on the OCE server under the name Dankashank (add me I need more friends).
I have been playing Darius since before the juggernaut reworks in season 4. He's a good guy (not really, he's an *******) and he loves to play basketball.
Hope this semi helps you in any way/shape/form.
Pros / Cons
-Has good base damage
-Has an insane passive
-Builds tank but snowballs really well
-Prone to kiting while E is on cooldown
-Struggles vs. ranged/CC champions
TELEPORT / IGNITE
-Taking Teleport will allow for global map pressure and a bigger team impact all-around. Also good for helping secure objectives.
-Taking Ignite will allow for better kill potential in lane when you think your bleed just won't do the trick alone.
-You are not jungling. Stop.
Level 1 is simple with Darius: take Decimate first, try and poke the enemy laner with the tip of your axe. This will continue until about level 3 when you can start playing more aggressive now that you have Crippling Strike and Apprehend also at your disposal.
Level 6 is when things get really spicy. Apprehend your enemy laner, auto attack once, use your Crippling Strike, auto attack them once again, and then get them with Decimate. This will get you 5 stacks of Hemorrhage, then you can either try and execute them, or just see their health bar drop with Noxian Guillotine. If the enemy laner burns Flash while you are mid-combo, that's okay. The next time they come back, they won't have a Flash to save them.
