Introduction

First off, I would like to welcome everyoneworld of Darius. From Noxus comes a new melee BLEEDER. That's right summoners! Darius' attacks cause his target to bleed over time and apply a stack, which buffs your movement speed! This is my very first guide for this game, but I will try to make it as friendly and as easy to follow as possible.

Runes

When using Darius, we need to apply stacks at a reasonable pace, and still maintain a sustainable build. Since Darius is NOT a tank, we will go with Greater Mark of Attack Damage, Greater Seal of Attack Speed, and for glyphs either Greater Glyph of Magic Resist or Greater Glyph of Armor are acceptable. For the Quintessences we can either go for a Greater Quintessence of Movement Speed, or you may choose to throw a Greater Quintessence of Attack Speed or two instead. It really depends on how you want to ravage your target. These are very interchangeable, It just really depends on how aggressive you are with your champions, or how you portray the play style of Darius.

My usual setup: Greater Mark of Attack Damage x9, Greater Seal of Attack Speed x9, Greater Glyph of Health x9, Greater Quintessence of Movement Speed x3

Masteries

Usually when playing Darius, I go with a 21/9/0 mastery tree. I love doing a lot of damage and the mastery tree shown is a great way to do that. ALWAYS put a point in Summoner's Wrath because our spells of choice are Ghost and Ignite.

Summoner Spells

Ghost and Ignite are the 2 that I have found most helpful in nearly every situation. Ghost is without a doubt the only gap closer you have besides Apprehend. You will need it! HOWEVER! There are situations where you may be up against a Varus, or a Ashe with ranged/slowing effects and they will set you up for a gank, so I feel that it is safe to say that Flash is also a safe alternative. I would not recommend many other summoner spells for Darius.

Summary

Darius is a very strong champion beginning game, but he only gets stronger throughout the game! My build is a very strong offensive build. Enjoy!!! Comment and vote please. This is my first guide so all criticism is welcome! Comment your scores here. thanks for viewing!
