Threat Champion Notes
3
Gangplank Gangplank was recently reworked. He hits like a train when given the proper setup time. Don't chase him blindly into bushes, and build a lot of health. He deals true damage and has % armor penetration, just like you. Early game, he shouldn't pose a huge threat, however be wary of his barrels. Like I said before, DON'T FOLLOW HIM THROUGH BUSHES. Be wary of his early game ability to orange your slows away, and you should be alright in the lane phase. His late game rivals yours, and he can insta-gib your squishies very easily, due to his barrels critting.

Who Is Darius?

Dunkmaster, Noxian Batman, Darude, OP, whatever you wanna call Darius, just get ready to play him. He's a skirmishing, dunking, axe-wielding super-soldier that pentakills teams if given even half the chance.

What's so great about him? What sucks about him?


So what does all this mean?
It means that Darius is a monster.
So, let's start with the pros, shall we? Darius' innate tankiness was buffed, and is a great addition considering he relies on more drawn out fights now. His new heal is VERY potent, seeing as it's up to 30% of his missing HP with one Q, just on its' own. Add in a Spirit Visage, and it can be INSANE how much he heals. Darius now no longer has a poor late game, and instead thrives in it. His early can be a bit harder than before, but can also snowball even harder. He also gained a slow on his E, and the slow on his W was increased, helping him out quite a bit. Finally, Darius' DoT is now physical damage, meaning Black Cleaver will make it shred armor and also speed Darius up.

Onto the cons. Darius is now more prone to being kited due to the delay on his Q. That can also make it hard to hit the blade if you're not experienced with him. Also, if you're bad at Darius, now you're REALLY bad at Darius. Lastly, he's relatively short range.
