I've never played against him and I'm scared because I usually go top or jungle.

Which champion should I pick against him as jungle and/or at top?

Please help me. I have a huge brainfart.

I've heard range or gapclosers are hard for him, and he's very vulnerable to ganks. He also has no sustain.

Pretty much, yep.

First ranked game against him, I let my friend be rumble(because my friend is bad-ish toplane) and I just ganked the hell out of Darius. not much you can do when things are flying at your face then knocking you up.

EDIT: Build HP too. HP>True damage.

If health > true damage, then...

Cho'Gath top. Or Sion, but you need a trillion farm.

I imagine Caitlyn would do well against him too with her 650 range and traps and slow and backwards blink to get out of his pull/ult range.

But he practically ***** over any melee champion with no escape.

Kayle is great against him.

Thank you Miss Maw, CasterMaster and Arcana3 for the sweet sigs. I'd definitely recommend you to anyone looking for a nice sig.

But never ever try to trade with him, his passive let him be victorius. And if he can pull you, take ready for a ride.

At lvl 1 and 2, he tries to hit you with the outer part of his axe. It applies blood stacks and deals increased dmg, so don't get hit by that. At lvl 3, care about the grabs, so important. If he Q's you, then E's you, auto attacks you and then W's you, you are pretty much ****ed. Especially if he has Ignite.

Why would you take grab at level 3. I mean, I normally just go Q > E > Q > W to level 4, and then R > Q > E > W.

Kite his face off. Or use Jax/ Riven. Both make him look pretty pitiful.

is the best counter I've seen so far. Her and will just kite the **** out of him. Max Q first for most slow and increased damage, her counters his ultimate, E keeps him from a distance, and you got W for heals or speed. It's critical though to avoid his grab or he'd chunk a pretty good amount of health with his .
