Introduction

Welcome to my Darius build, you don't really need to read any of this, but I made this guide because Darius is my favorite solo top character (who happens to be very useful in jungle as well) and I don't like the look of the guides for Darius currently up on Mobafire. If you are curious about my choices for my jungle and solo top build below is the best place to be looking for answers.


Guide Top

Runes

My choices for runes in solo top and jungle are pretty obvious. Darius has enough passive armor pen. that three quints of it should do the trick early game and transfer into late game. Darius is the strongest solo top damage dealer out there with Renekton, Riven, Jax, and more recently Jayce. However, I find the damage that Darius deals more reliable than all three. In the jungle, Darius has a strong clear time with plenty of time left to counter jungle if you'd like, and as long as he has some trusty health pots along the way, health isn't a problem.

Masteries

Not really gonna bother to explain, Darius doesn't need Runic Affinity because he has a natural and strong slow, which used in sync with his jungler or lane (which he is ganking), makes for more than enough CC.


Guide Top

Summoner Spells

Ignite and Exhaust are both fine choices for solo top, but with them you NEED either ghost or flash. Darius has no natural escape and even though the passive gives bonus movement speed, its no where near enough to do a proper escape.

Why I play Darius as a jungler.

Darius has no escape, like I said above, but he is VERY hard to escape from. Since he doesn't do well when ganked, why not turn the tables and do the ganking?


Guide Top

My builds.

In solo top, Darius (like I said before), is a heavy and great damage dealer. He doesn't need the sustain or Gp5 that most other guides tell you to get such as Philo stone or HoG. This same principle applies to his jungle game as well. Nobody should get wriggles AND philo/HoG because that's simply unnecessary.
