Introduction

Hello interneters!

Welcome to my Darius guide, who is the newest champion in the game at the moment of me writing this. This is also my first Mobafire guide, but I'm constantly lurking in the back alleys of the site, so I figured I should give it a shot.

Darius is a bad-ace from Noxus and a character who I've started to love. I'll go over how I feel he can be used. Please note, this is a GUIDE. The word guide is defined as "to assist (a person) to travel through, or reach a destination in, an unfamiliar area, as by accompanying or giving directions to the person." Don't follow it blindly. Use common judgement to adapt to the game you are in!

Note: This is a work inprogress. I'm continuing work on it. I just accidentally hit "Publish" like the klutz I am...

Pros and Cons

Pros/Cons
__________________________________________________________

  • Pros
  • Can build tanky and still do good damage
  • You make them bleed so much it's like mini-ignite!
  • A pretty mean lane bully
  • Powerful exhanges, rivaled only by characters like Riven, Olaf, or Garen
  • Your ultimate deals TRUE DAMAGE!
  • Good farmer with spamming his Q
  • Your cooldowns aren't half bad.
  • Hard to counter with defensive items, as he deals a mix of physical and magic damage.
  • Late game Darius gives little children nightmares (Move over Nocturne)
SPACE
SPACE
  • Cons :(
  • Mana hungry, even into late game
  • Cannot initiate a teamfight
  • Gets randomly attacked by turrets if an enemy champion is bleeding.
  • Pre-6 killing power is weak
  • You have to be able to judge the enemy health to kill with your your ultimate
  • Bleed is magic damage, so your armor pen. doesn't affect it
  • People complain about you "killstealing" with your ultimate
  • He sucks at spinning compared to Garen

Runes

Nothing outside the ordinary here. Feel free to use your favorites, but these generics always work well.

I don't really recommend these, but go for whatever you want.

Masteries

I take a nice 9/21/0 for our pal Darius. The reasoning is simple. You are a tanky damage dealer, so that's really what you want. This isn't the only way to do it, for sure. Just my favorite.
