Mastery Tree Is Outdated

Hi and welcome to my first guide about Darius,Darius is one of the most strongest champs in Lol if you know how to build him i hope that my guide will help you to collect some heads of youre enemies ;)
you may wonder why you should play darius soooo defensive its because of his true damage skill Noxian Guillotine you dont need to play him with very much Ad items you will win the fights anyway with my guide
if you come to an 1on1 situation with an other champ you open up with Decimate after this the most enemies try to run away and come back when you got cooldown on Decimate
Dont let them come awayif they come away a bit they can counter you you got to stay in the fight so after Decimate quick use of Crippling Strike to slow him down if he flashs away you Ghost after him and grab him with Apprehend after this he got no more chances to get away you do youre Decimate again 1 to 2 auto attacks and finish him with
Noxian Guillotineand see the enemies rage hard ;)
-He is easy to play and is one of the best champs in Lol if you buy the right items
-He is very useful in the team fight because of his Decimate Skill
-He can be very helpful for other teammates wehen he grabs enemies or slows them down
-A Darius isnt very strong in early game until he gets his ult
-You quick Ks with darius because of his blood damage
Worst Enemies of Darius
The worst enemies you can get on the toplane is Xin Zhao and Renekton because they got much CC skills and can counter you out easy
i will give you some tips to win against top laners who are better than you hold the enemies on range with youre Decimate Skill until you are lvl 6 and he got low life than you attack him and maybe gain first blood or a normal Kill they you buy def against him and try to get another kill in the same way than you got good chances to win
The best way to farm with Darius is to last hit the minions with Decimate
when they got low life dont think the top lane or where you are is lost if you got 10-20 minions fewer than youre enemy its difficult to farm minions with Darius
Darius aims his attacks strategically, causing his target to bleed for 12 / 15 / 18 / 21 / 24 / 27 / 30 / 33 / 36 (+0.3 per bonus attack damage) magic damage over 5 seconds. This effect stacks up to five times.
Darius gains 5% movement speed for each bleeding enemy champion.
Darius swings his axe in a wide circle. Enemies struck by the shaft take 70 / 105 / 140 / 175 / 210 (+0.7 per bonus attack damage) physical damage, while those that are struck by the blade take 105 / 157.5 / 210 / 262.5 / 315 (+1.05 per bonus attack damage) physical damage.
Darius's next attack severs a crucial artery, dealing 20 / 40 / 60 / 80 / 100 % additional physical damage. As the target bleeds out, their movement and attack speeds are slowed by 20 / 25 / 30 / 35 / 40 % for 2 seconds. Crippling Strike's cooldown is reduced by 1 second for each stack of Hemorrhage on the target.
Darius hones his axe, granting him 5 / 10 / 15 / 20 / 25 % passive armor penetration. When activated, Darius sweeps up his enemies with his axe's hook and pulls them to him.
Darius leaps to an enemy Champion and strikes a lethal blow, dealing 160 / 250 / 340 (+0.75 per bonus attack damage) true damage. This damage increases by 20% for each stack of Hemorrhage on the target up to a maximum of 320 / 500 / 680 (+1.5 per bonus attack damage) true damage. If Noxian Guillotine is a killing blow its cooldown is refreshed.
Summoner Spells ans Masteries
Well the summoner spells and masteries i write that its good to use Ghost because in late game you can easy come along with an enemy and youre tanky enough that you dont need flash anymore i am gonna tell you what i use for early game combat my summoner spells are ignite and flash because when an enemy got low life i flash into the tower took Decimate ignite on him and go away he dies because of the blood and ignite damage and...well i love it to see my enemies burn to death :D well back to the theme you can try both of it flash,and Ghost and use this whats better in youre opinion now we get to the masteries i do the masteries in too ways a friend told me that it would better to do the masteries a bit tanky because thats better in late game so i changed it i want to remind you my masteries are only an example you can change them like you want ;)
well what else can i say its my first guide so please be tolerant on me i will edit when ever i got time and try to make it better i also hope that you will have much fun with it Darius is my main champ and i play against much others Dariuses and i always win and i hope than my guide helps you hope we dont see us ingame if you use this guide :D
