Introduction

I like to play Darius as a tanky champion. His playing style is almost like Pantheon, aggresive. This build will help you initiate fights and stay in them for most of the duration. It will also help you do major damage and quite possibly 4-hit a squishy champ at mid-game.

Items

Boots

I like to use [Ionian boots of Lucidity] since my build already makes [Darius] tanky, and i can run from any danger, but [Mercury's Treads] are also highly recommended if your enemies have a lot of CC.

Why Trinity Force AND Frozen Mallet?

I use [trinity force] and [Frozen mallet] because [frozen mallet] gives me enough health to withstand damage from initiating team fights and [trinity force] gives me the speed too escape from danger or catch someone on low hp and gives extra damage to do that pull and spin combo which deals a ton of damage.

Last Whisper, Bloodthirster, or Infinity Edge?

I love using [Last Whisper] because it just adds to that major armor penetration you already have. It's also good since Darius already does major damage. Bloodthirster is also a good choice since it helps you sustain health while in a team fight. Infinity edge is a good item but i wouldn't consider using it since you're not really going to deal crits.

This is always my final build when i get all my items.

Runes

Runes are totally up to you and your playing style. I like to stay in fights so i always have health quintessences and seals. Armor penetration Marks and Physical Damage Glyphs are a must have in my opinion. I might also consider movement speed runes since Darius can't really escape from danger unless flash is up.

Team Work

If your team doesn't have a tank, be the one to initiate a team fight or a gank. Darius's pull and slow (e+w) combo works really well when initiating. whatever you do don't stop fighting and only back out when you need to. Wait for the enemies to get low on hp and mop the floor with your ult.

Summary

I know I didn't write much, but i will update and get into more detail soon. What I have talked about should be enough for you to start off with. Thank you and leave your opinions about the build below.
