Introduction

Hello my friends, and welcome to my Darius guide. Personally, I really like Darius and I consider him to be my main. I hope you will learn a lot about Darius in this guide and that you will continue to go on maniacal rampages decapitating people with Darius.

Runes

Greater Quintessence of Strength: This will give you a lot of damage.
Greater Mark of Strength: Pick this simply, because it gives much more damage early.
Greater Glyph of Shielding: Same as below. Will give you sustain, especially against team with a lots of AP carries and it helps against those minions also.
Greater Seal of Resilience: This will help you lane and get those minion kills, also helps later on, at late game.


Situational Runes


Greater Quintessence of Swiftness: Quintessence worth of considering, if you like to be able to chase / escape little bit easier. Also gives you faster movement speed, which you may spot especially early-mid game, where you have same amount of movement speed giving boots. There you are able to catch him, maybe enough to basic attack him or cast Apprehend on him.
Greater Glyph of Shielding: If you prefer the late game magic resistance, rather than flat magic resistance, these fit better for you.
Greater Mark of Desolation: Really helpful mark, which are not seen in AD, but it's clearly seen as damage in-game. Consider these over the AD marks, or you can change the quintessences to armor penetration instead.tion instead.

Skill Sequence

I will briefly explain my ability sequence choices;
I choose to max Decimate first, because it's your main damaging ability, harassing skill and you benefit from it the most. It's damage is just amazing while leveling it up and it's cooldown isn't terrifying. Then I choose to max out Crippling Strike of course. It's your second damaging ability and leveling it up gives you the extra slow for movement speed, if you hit the enemy and it's damage output is also increased quite a bit. For the third, but not the least I choose to max our Apprehend. I don't find it necessary to level it up, just for the cooldown and armor penetration %, but of course they do help you, but not as much as Decimate or Crippling Strike. As always, choose Noxian Guillotine always when you can, because it is what makes you "The Hand of Noxus"! I can't see any champion except maybe few, where ultimate is not leveled up always when possible. Usually ultimate is chosen every time you can and Darius isn't exception.
