About me
I am a gold 3 jungle main, I also like top and if I ever start playing aatrox top I will make a guide for it. Why I like Aatrox? Well I think he is a very stronger junngler and he is good at farming and fighting, he can also do some early dives which is cool.

My in game name is Jakeycuz

This is some what of s stranded page apart from the AS runes. I use the AS runes cos they give him so fast clear in the early levels and then also scale into the late game, your also quite hard to be burst as aatrox so this is why I don't use the MR runes.

I use these masteries cos they give you all the stats you need as aatorx, and you are a bit tanky in the jungle, we also get an extra 10G every time we smite something (this starts to add up over time)

Guide Top


This is a good setup on aatorx, But if you have a lot of dmg on your team and need to be more tanky you can replace the hydra with a sunfire, also if they have a lot of cc or magic dmg you can get merctreds so you dont get cc as much cos this is a huge counter to aatrox, DAMN YOU CC

Farming The junnle

When your farming the jungle you will want to keep your Blood Lust on at all times. This gives you good sustain for when you are ganking.
When clearing camps in the jungle you want to E the camp and then Q onto it so your Q knocks up all the creeps and dose the max damage.
If you are farming a lane you will want to E the wave and then Q onto them after that and then just AA the remaing creeps.

Ok There is one of two things you can do as aatrox while ganking. If your Lane is not in the fight you need to use your E for a slow, now because they are slowed it makes it much easier to land your Q, When this hits you press R for the 300 damage and the extra AA range and AS. Now you want to switch out your W for the extra damage. The same applies for when your lane is fighting apart from you want to walk up and use your Q then use your E to chase the enemy down after they back up.
Also if your passive is up dont be afraid to gank on %40 hp, but never go in with less than this
After ganking a lane and kill the laners you ALWAYS want to help your team mates lane, They may scream and shout at you for this but it makes the enemy laners miss XP and GOLD, so in the end you are helping your laner. Then after getting the wave to their tower, if your laners want to get the tower help them, Also after killing the bot lane tell your bot lane to come and help you at Dragon.

Team fighting

There are two versions of the team fight, ones when you catch the carrys and ones when you are on the front lines tanking. If you Catch a Carry you want to switch your W out for Blood Lust and burst them down, and after that depending on if you are being focused or not you will want to swap your W back to tank for your carrys. If you are tanking for the start you will want to keep Blood Lust on to keep your hp and make it harder to kill you. Unless you need to burst down a tank for one of your carrys.
Also don't be afraid to ult to take down a tower fast or dragon or baron
