Hello fellow summoner's. Redfangdawn here with my state of the art DPS Darius build. Throughout the guide I'll explain my masteries, runes, skill order, item build, summoner spells, and where and why i play DPS Darius. Enjoy!
Pros / Cons
-VERY very strong after u finish 2nd phantom
-amazing in team fights
-can pretty much 1v1 anyone by mid game
-insane attack speed and movement speed allow a lot of dps and you can stack hemorhage much faster allowing youre ultimate to do massive damage
-CC is really his only weakness when built like this but its not bad if you stun/pull with E
For dps Darius I use 9 desolation marks and 3 desolation quints so i can shred through the massive armor of tanks. For seals i bring flat armor runes to keep up with the tanks while still staying full DPS. And finally for glyphs i bring magic resist per level runes to get some resistance against those pesky mages.
For DPS Darius masteries I use the basic AD mastery set up of 21 in offense and 9 in defense.
Obviously flash is a given. Flash is key for both escaping and chasing and can be of great help throughout each match. I also recommend bringing exhaust because it allows you to easily get feed early game. Just exhaust the enemy then flash to them and pull them in with apprehend and hit them with crippling strike and decimate followed by youre ultimate to finish them off.
As Dps Darius i take decimate at level 1 for good lane harass. At level 2 i recommend taking apprehend because the pull allows u not only to stop CC but also to bring the enemy in to deal massive damage. Then finally at level 3 i take crippling strike. As usual at levels 6, 11, & 16 u should put a point in to youre ultimate. Max decimate first then crippling strike and max apprehend last. And that is youre basic skill set-up for Darius.
Dps Darius if used like i explained throughout this is amazing. I recommend staying away from all the higher rank darius builds for they aren't nearly as good as the Dps Darius build that i created. Trust me i have tried offtank/tank darius many times and its no where near as good as my dps version. Well this is all i have for you fans of darius for now. There is nothing much left to teach you. It is up to you to unlock darius's true potential and make sure to tell youre friends about a new kind of darius: the dps. Good luck and have fun :D
