Introduction


Let's start
It's always exciting when Riot sets a new champion loose on the Fields of Justice. Recently, they've release Darius The Hand of Noxus. Darius is a melee champion with good damage output, while being quite tanky.

Now I know that a lot of summoners think Darius is a Garen clone, and I slightly agree. I think that Darius is like Garen... When you give him a good kick in the nuts! He'll certainly not let you get away with it!
