Darius The Hand of Noxus
Darius is meele fighter and anti-tank with extremly penetration and true dmg. He can deal with tanks on sure but in normal 1v1 fights he can do little power nuke with combo of q w and ulti. He can support his team with e . E is pull .
There is no greater symbol of Noxian might than Darius, the nation's most feared and battle-hardened warrior. Orphaned at a young age, Darius had to fight to keep himself and his younger brother alive. By the time he joined the military, he had already developed the strength and discipline of a veteran soldier. The first true test of Darius's resolve occurred in a crucial battle against Demacia, where the Noxian forces were exhausted and outnumbered. Darius's captain called for his troops to retreat, but Darius refused to accept such an act of cowardice. Breaking formation, Darius strode towards the captain and decapitated him with one sweep of his gigantic axe. Both terrified and inspired, the soldiers followed Darius into battle and fought with incredible strength and fervor. After a long and grueling battle, they ultimately emerged victorious.
Seizing momentum from this victory, Darius led his now fiercely loyal troops in a devastating campaign against Demacia. After proving his power on the battlefield, Darius turned his gaze homeward. He saw a Noxus riddled with weakness, where greedy, complacent nobles drained the nation's strength. Seeking to restore his country to greatness, Darius took it upon himself to reshape the Noxian leadership. He identified weak figureheads and violently removed them from their positions of power. Many in Noxus saw Darius's cull as an attempt to seize power, but he had a different plan for the throne. He had been watching the rise of Jericho Swain with keen interest. In Swain, Darius saw a leader with the mind and determination to bring Noxus to glory. Now allied with the Master Tactician, Darius works to unite the nation behind his vision of true Noxian strength.
''A united Noxus could control the world - and would deserve to.'' - Darius
Noxian Version of Garen ( counter )
Darius have same abilities as Garen Spin enchanted basic atack and his ulti have same effect DESTRUCTION . They are both relly great fighters offtanks and damage dealers . Many peoples cry that they are duo of gay non real champions over powered but they are easy to countered . Againts Darius tactic is symply . stay behind minions and do not be in range of is q abilit ( spin ) if he use w ( enchanted basic attack ) wait 4 of 5 sec. until it end and strike him . if you attack on his turret be behind your minions. Best boots againts him are Boots of swiftness besacue his passive ability give him large movement speed . If you focus him in early gaem he will be under feeded and offtank withou crepps is lost . He is not so fast . Yea I knwo his passive give him movement speed boost but it is not same like Matser YI ultimate ability or Garen q ability . So if you are faster than him you are better than him . Nocturne and Sivir have sjield withc can block his ulti and peples with Banshee are too block his Leap strike . His ulti is something like Jax junmp but dont make same damage.
Building Darius (5v5)
You can go on solotop : Here im beginning with cloth armor and 5 healt potions > Normal boots > Philosopher Stone > Ninja Tabi / Mercurys Trades > Phadge > Aegis Legion > Hexdrinker > Frozen Malet > Maw of Malmourtius > Bloodthister > Randunien Omen . Now I have full build but aegis oif legion is in lategame little bit uselles and I buy Guardian Angel ! Now its a full build . And on the bottom lane i satrt with boots and 3 health potions and build is continue same like on solotop . Why this build ? Because you can support your etam with a E and Aegis of Legion on bottom lane you are litle support and on solo top nice off tank Combination of this items will give good attack damage armor megic resist and health becasue you are offtank . Do not be afrid from start fight and tank it . And never forget use Randunien omen its nice suprise item with slow .
Building Darius (3v3)
Here I start with Doran Blade because boots are on FB uselles trust me ;) Next I buy Boots withc I need best are tanks boots but its your choice > The Back Cleaver > Warmog Armor > Guardian Angle > Bloodthister > Atams Inpaler . With this build you can tank it cuz you have good hp and you still do epic dmg . Lifesteel will make you more surrviable and with armor its sure . The Black Cleaver will make you more OP againts tanks ( Ammumu Rammus Malephite ) will hate you !
On solotop be agresive on lvl 2 with q and w . Cast q if is enemy in damgerous range and slow them with w after continue with ignite and basic attacks . You w is on-hit-effect and can be used agants turret . Pullig enemies under your turrets its too rageable with your slow and boost from your passive . In mid game you are still not tank so go to fights as second . Steeling with your ulti is nice way to do penta I did pentakill in 7 th game only with my ulti . Late game : you can tank it if you want . tyr to pull tehir ap or carry and finish him with ulti after if is ad and ap killed by ulti you can start in focusing offtank still keep support in range and steel him you have triple now finish cripled off tank oyu have wuadra and enjoy your penta on raged tank :D .As Support on bottom lane : Do not steel minions but kills yea . Steel first 3 kills and next kills give to ad carry it will make you very fast ready to mid gaem and you can tank it for short time. Mid hame is same as on soltop just killing minions (now you can) and helping Ad carry . In late game tank it and still keep your ad carry in progress . And please dont forget my tip how to do penta its same if are you from bottom lane or solotop.
On 3v3 you are offtank . So in early game make last hits but no much steel kills . You need only first 2 or 3 kills to have a feed. In mid game be agressive and start fights all the time if you will have a good farm you will be very fast in part called late game . In late game you must but rly must tank it . Pull some enemy kill him eith ulti go to second if is he ad carry use on him your attack speed debuff and finish with ulti againt . Tanks are not proble for Darius. if you have lvl 10-11 and The Black Cleaver you can solo Dragon. BUt betetr is wait for giant Belt but its only for sure .
Buy Last Whisper > Infinity Edge > Bloodthister > The Black Cleaver > Trinity Force > Berserker Graves . You have mega ad but you are easy to kill cuz you dont have hp and not much resist . But if are you really overfeeded buy this and you will own but you need good skill in teamfights and fps 30 and more .
Pros / Cons
/ + Epic dmg
+ Tanks are lost
+ very anoing
+ still is little tanky
/ - If is he focused hard he wil lnot surrvive
- Not champion about skill but about have a good build and strategy
