Introduction

Hey there fellow Darius lovers, Music Lion here with a competitive build for you all. So far I've simply seen Darius players follow the recommended build or Phreaks build. Let me tell you now that build is a support/tank build. I have no idea what they were thinking. Darius if built AD is currently the most broken champ I've seen in my time playing League of Legends, and I've been playing since the old days when Gangplank's Parrrley made more gold than last hits themselves.

This build offers enough damage and health to effectively 2v1 and come out alive. This build gives you strong staying power in lane with philosopher's stone that also doubles as a full game gold generator. The build then moves into damage, attack speed, and durability.



IMPORTANT MESSAGE
This is currently just a build, I'm working on my Ziggs guide and may or may not turn this into a full guide. If you like the build, please upvote. Otherwise, leave a comment and tell me what you think.

Lore

There is no greater symbol of Noxian might than Darius, the nation's most feared and battle-hardened warrior. Orphaned at a young age, Darius had to fight to keep himself and his younger brother alive. By the time he joined the military, he had already developed the strength and discipline of a veteran soldier. The first true test of Darius's resolve occurred in a crucial battle against Demacia, where the Noxian forces were exhausted and outnumbered. Darius's captain called for his troops to retreat, but Darius refused to accept such an act of cowardice. Breaking formation, Darius strode towards the captain and decapitated him with one sweep of his gigantic axe. Both terrified and inspired, the soldiers followed Darius into battle and fought with incredible strength and fervor. After a long and grueling battle, they ultimately emerged victorious.

Seizing momentum from this victory, Darius led his now fiercely loyal troops in a devastating campaign against Demacia. After proving his power on the battlefield, Darius turned his gaze homeward. He saw a Noxus riddled with weakness, where greedy, complacent nobles drained the nation's strength. Seeking to restore his country to greatness, Darius took it upon himself to reshape the Noxian leadership. He identified weak figureheads and violently removed them from their positions of power. Many in Noxus saw Darius's cull as an attempt to seize power, but he had a different plan for the throne. He had been watching the rise of Jericho Swain with keen interest. In Swain, Darius saw a leader with the mind and determination to bring Noxus to glory. Now allied with the Master Tactician, Darius works to unite the nation behind his vision of true Noxian strength.

"A united Noxus could control the world - and would deserve to." - Darius
