Not Updated For Current Season
The masteries shown here are not yet updated for the current season, the guide author needs to set up the new masteries. As such, they will be different than the masteries you see in-game.
Before the guide, I want to say sorry for my langage, I am a little frenchie who don't speak very well.
I play Aatrox since his apparition in LoL.
He is a very good sololaner and a medium jungler who had many sustain and an excellent engage but many weakness and feebleness.
I tried to create a build who amplify the good points and make up the bad points of this champion.
For your start, take an Elixir of Fortitude and 3 Health Potion.
You are very fragile before your level 3. Try to farm and regenerate your life on minions.
Don't allow your enemy hurt you and use your health potion when you are mid-life.
From your level 3-5, the junglers will tru to gank. Use your elixir to escape from a gank or try to take a kill under the enemy turret. Preserve your Q to engage or escape a fight.
On your first back, take a Boots of Speed and a Sword of the Occult, with this item you can snowball.
If you see that you are loosing your lane, try to shift on other lanes to take ***itances and play safe to do not loose your stacks.
If you are winning, try to take kills on your enemy and be carefull about the jungler.
Stack your Sword of the Occult and try to do not die. You have a better sustain and your enemy will be forced to back before you. Wait his back to depush and back a second time.
Take Boots of Swiftness, with this you can shift on others lane faster.
Buy a Giant's Belt and a Stinger, you will be more tanky and regenate with your passiv easier.
Continue to farm and shift on other lanes when yours is pushed.
Take ***itances to stack your Sword of the Occult.
Buy a Zephyr, the tenacity will help you to escape of the gank easier and the attack speed is very important on aatrox.
A Spirit Visage will help you to more regenate your life.
Continue your way among your lane and the others.
The teamfights will begin, be carefull if you engage with your Q, your are not a tank and your passif is precious.
Begining of the teamfights
Take a Warmog's Armor, with this item you can engage the teamfights and stave off to be instant-killed by the other team. The regeneration of the warmog is amplified by the spirit visage.
The Mercurial Scimitar will help you to become insensitive to the stuns.
You have now an all green stuff :]
If you want, you can sold the Sword of the Occult to take a gardian angel to have a double passif, but you will loose many attack dommage.
This stuff gave to aatrox what miss to him: move speed and health.
But you will have fewer attack dommage and attack speed than other aatrox.
It is really helpful on midlane, there is many magic resist on this build.
