Introduction

Hi and welcome to my guide! In these builds I focus on making Darius sufficiently tanky while also having a high attack damage. Darius is an incredibly fun and champion to play, and is easy to learn. Darius is an AD caster, much like a Noxian Garen. He deals out tons of damage, has a fun ultimate that will often win you teamfights.

Runes

The runes are pretty standard.

A little extra ad that will aid in last hitting and scales well on Darius's Decimate

Armor pen that will synergize well with Darius's apprehend's passive armor penetration.

Abilities

http://edge1.mobafire.com/images/ability/darius-hemorrhage.png
Darius's passive. Is a Damage over time that lowers the cooldown of your crippling strike and increases the damage of Noxian Guillotine. Coupled with an ignite, enemies can escape with a fairly large health pool and still die to your passive.

Darius's main source of damage. This is the bread and butter of Darius. Make sure to always hit the enemy with the outside ring of this for the extra damage. This has a low cooldown and mana cost, so make sure to harass with this whenever you can

http://edge4.mobafire.com/images/ability/darius-crippling-strike.png
This ability when activated will make your next basic attack do extra damage and will slow the enemy. Crippling strike's cooldown will be reduced the more hemorrhage stacks there are, which will aid with longer engagements with the enemy.

This is Darius initiate skill. This skill can actually pull people through walls, so keep that in mind.This has a rather high cooldown, but whenever it is off cooldown make sure to pull the enemy into your minions, unleash your combo, and then do it again when it is off.

http://edge4.mobafire.com/images/ability/darius-noxian-guillotine.png
This is darius's ultimate. It is ridiculously strong, but make sure to try and not ks every kill with it. Make sure to always last hit the enemy with this, as it refreshes if it deals the killing blow. Also make sure that you have as many hemorrhage stacks on the enemy as you can before using it, to deal as much damage as you can with this. In teamfights this is almost guaranteed multikills if you can utilize this correctly.

Summoner Spells

http://edge4.mobafire.com/images/summoner-spell/ignite.png
This spell is way strong on Darius. If you can get stacks of hemorrhage and an ignite off an the enemy, a kill is almost guaranteed.

Very good escape/ chase spell
