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.
begining the game
You are solo..Your job is only one..defend your lane...keep tower safe and wait for the jungle or the mid(if mid knows his/her job)..The first 8 minutes are crucial...you must go back and forth back and forth...kill as many minions as you can and then back next to tower...your aim is to make them come near tower so that you will have the upperhand..try not to get hit..not to push..you are a defender..play them..make them be anxious to kill you...they will do the mistake trust me
changing roles ;)
''Hey man y are Darius!!!you gonna defend all the game??''No,after you have finished phage and you go for bloodthirster you are a true bully..you wont have any problem with your lane...you will be also able to help with mid gangs...and try to hit wolves for extra gold as you go for mid....your role is to defend your rale..but always look at the map for possible gangs that you could assist
tips and tricks
remember to constantly poke them, w/e/q combos...and generally playing def the first minutes with an offensive way...as the one returns back for example..and has left the other one back poke him with some extra damage...it would be a good idea to have some wards..at the typical brashes or at the entrance for buff so that you can kill a prominent jungler....
carry on lane
If you had a carry on lane dont panic...this means low life and tower dives are kill for you..if carry isnt with support play as i said..def and you will find the opportunities to damage the carry..now if there are two carries in your lane..which happened to me yesterday..things are tough...change imidiately lanes with the bottom lane if you are top..they will understand you and do the change...if they dont try to go forth hit one carry and then run to tower...mark the easiest carry for your target..for example ashe/teamo pick teamo...for ashe/vayne pick ashe
Pros / Cons
[*] early and late champion [*]not easy escape
[*] passive which works like ignite
[*] easy tower dives with ulty
[*] ecan stop skills like
katarinas ulty or warwicks
You are the off tank..so try to be the first one in battles..the one which will pull and hit...if there isnt a tank in the team...you can also combo really well with ability power champions...taunt them..get them close and let ap in a safe distance destroy them
If i had to say that there is something unique with this build is that you are not going to lose lane..and you are going to sustain in the game..be the leading role
q is like a paradise for farming....q the minions around you and with second q there are dead...passive will also help y get the last hit on minions
Darius is like Riven or like Yorick...Is megatherion that will not stop..will get what he wants and then walk smiling at base..enjoy him
