Not Updated For Current Season
The masteries shown here are not yet updated for the current season, the guide author needs to set up the new masteries. As such, they will be different than the masteries you see in-game.
This Darius build more focusses on Darius being a carry and at the same time being able to tank and out down enemies that try to focus him in team fights as well as Darius being able to pull out squishy carries with his e ability and kill them before they can even blink (litteraly ive done it before). Hope you enjoy this build and that it helps you or guides you to how you could be playing Darius.
The Masteries help you have good sustain in the begging while also being able to curb stomp your enemies and give you easy kills. Not really much to go on about them..
Start with the cloth armour and health pots to give you incredible sustain and be able to take harass. get a vampiric scepter right after to add on to your sustain and be able to take enemies down 1v1 easily. From there you build into wriggles lantern, than merc treads or ninja tabi depending on your enemies and eventually into triforce, I.E, B.T, Frozen Mallet, and Guardians. the Infities edge gives you insane damage with high crits along with the triforce to get bonus health and the sheen proc to make executing enemies fast and quick. the bloodthirster just makes you a 1v1 king and frozen mallet to get the slows on enemies and make the kill easy and quick along with a ton of health. A guardians angel to finish it all of to get extra armour and magice resist with ofc the revive. If the game gets really late then you could sell your wriggles and buy something that would benefit you more. You could alter this build a bit and add in more magic resist with hexdrinker but i wouldnt reccomend it unless you are having serious problems with Ap's. In that case sell your wriggles and get something that gives magic resist and damage.
Ignite and flash are the most useful spells any Darius could have. In the beginning laning phase you can easily get kills at lvl 2 by pulling them in get a basic attack or 2 Q then ignite. Stacked with your passive there is really no way they can escape. Flash is a very good tool too have. Ofc it can be used for an escape and it can be used to take a kill and get away fast or lock down enemies with you ultimate. Other spells can be used like ghost and ignite which can be used for the same purposes but i prefer flash just because its more of a clean get away or a clean kill. :D
