Introduction

Hello everyone, my name is Ezraah17 and this is my work in progress of the build for Darius. I know he's not even out yet, but I've played a couple games with him on the PBE and I'm now working on a build for him. So if you see any weird texts, items, runes or whatever, it probably wont be the final result. Constructive criticism already much appreciated, but keep it friendly :)
It's difficult for me to try out the build and see if it's good on Darius. Because literally every single game I've played as Darius, I've played against a Darius too. While it's fully understandable, it's annoying too. Because you're playing against someone who can pull of the same stunts you can. So you're basically copying each other, and the battle is more based on individual skill level, not on Daruis' utility or items. So once again, the items may not be the best right now, but I will update them whenever I find a better item.
I'm sorry this build is half finished and doesn't provide much help, but I wanted to publish what I have already so I can provide everything I have to offer (items, runes, masteries + little information) as soon as possible for the early Darius players. I will update the guide as soon as possible. Also rate my guide, so that people start noticing it more :) I would love to see how my guide is working out for everyone.

Core Items

.
Doran's Shield is a great early game item for Darius. While I'm a fan of starting with Boots of Speed + 3x Health Potion or Cloth Armor + 5x Health Potion, Doran's Shield gives early game HP, Armor and HP5, making you super durable.


. .
Randuin's Omen is a must in this build. It gives 75 armor, 25 HP5, 350 HP, 2 nice passives (CDR works well with The Brutalizer) and a good active for chasing. This makes you pretty tanky, and building it with a Heart of Gold early game, will increase your durability and will help you get a decent build faster, even without a good amount of kills/farm.


. .
Frozen Mallet is also a must. It gives an amazing 700 HP, 20 AD, which is also good since you'll be dishing out more damage, and a 40% slow, making it really hard for your enemies to flee.

Reasoning behind the Items

.
The Brutalizer: It gives decent early game AD, CDR and ArP. The AD is great for farming and harrasing, the CDR is a nice bonus and the ArP works well with Apprehend's passive. Building it into a Youmuu's Ghostblade is great too. Increasing The Brutalizer's stats and giving CSC + a great active for chasing.
.
Randuin's Omen: Makes you tanky with 350 HP, 25 HP5 and 75 armor. The passives and active only make it a better option for Darius.
.
Trinity Force: All the base stats compliment Darius well, minus the AP. But the Sheen passive is just awesome. Decimate + AA is a lovely combo.
.
The Black Cleaver: Great base stats. 55 AD + 30 AS. The passive works great with your own. AA bring their armor down, while it makes them bleed. Making you a AA monster.
