Overview

So this is a Darius i find to be very helpful as long as its not a 3 on 1 or greater. This build is great for absorbing a lot of attacks and getting the upper hand in team fights. If you have any questions or things this guide could do to improve, feel free to write them in the comments and i will respond as quickly as i can.

Items

Try and get warmogs armor first as it will cause the other team to think twice before attacking. This will help early on as well as give you lots of health regen. The rest can be done in any order as long as you combine the health with the armor and not go all health and then armor. Atma's impaler is used to give a little armor as well as almost 60 attack damage in the end due to all the health. The Balwark is used because if you ever get to this point, the fight is really even and it might give your team the boost it needs to overpower the others. If the other team is mostly magic damagers, then you may have to change some of the items in place of more magic resist.

Masteries

As far as the masteries go, i usually go all defense as it doesn't really matter how much damage you do because someone else should be dealing the damage and you just keep the guy at bay. These choices in mastery are good added defense measures and you should notice them in battles.

Runes

Attack speed runes are so that you can get hemorrhage as quickly as possible in order to deal the most damage with the guillotine. Hemorrhage is also used to kill enemies slowly that have ran out of your range. But if you don't like the speed, then i would recommend using armor piercing runes instead. This is used with apprehend as you will read later on.

Skill Sequence

The apprehend is used to get passive armor break so i like to keep it pretty even with crippling strike. This is helpful when trying to kill other tanks and it really adds up with guillotine. Decimate needs to be maxed out early so that you can get quick kills in order to buy all the items and so you can help your partner feed as well. Use apprehend sparingly as it has a decently long cool-down time. Use it to start team fights or if someone is attacking one of your rangers so that you can pull them away and they attack you instead, giving your team a chance to run away.
