Prologue

Honestly if you want a safe win, do not play with this build and take a more serious one. It is really fun to play, but even harder to carry. Especially when you have no experience with Darius whatsoever. You have been warned!

Introduction

Well Hello there!


Today I will be talking about Full AD Darius, but the playstyle in general with Darius to actually carry every game. Of course it is way better to climb in ranked with a normal Darius build, but this one is just fun to use for literal "Oneshots".
Have fun reading my guide.

Runes

To start off, what runes should you use? Conqueror and Domination are the best ones even when you're playing the normal tank build. Conqueror allows you a lot of lane pressure and sustainability. This can be used to bully your enemys with your Q's. They will loose a lot of health and you heal yourself. Just great! Domination does the same, exept that you get a lot of health back through lifesteal and a lot of AD for lategame through your eyeballs. Best runes to actually bully someone so hard, he is probably going to be AFK.

Skill Sequence

I think maxing your Q on Darius is the most common thing and is self explanatory. If not: The Q allows you to deal a lot of Damage and heals you for it. Better scaling, more damage.
However a lot of people wonder why i skill my E second. This is the same as for the tank build. Your E gives you a lot of Armor Penetration you can use to maximize your Damage Output. Squishies will be decimated in no time and tanks ahve actually no escape. Your W will do good damage. It doesn't matter if it's on Max or still level 1, just scale it last.

Spells

Why should you play toplane Darius with Ignite instead of Teleport?
Every single time, I play Darius with Ignite on toplane. Every single time I get first blood because of it. Ignite and five stacks of your passive is like literal cancer. YOu loose on level 1 about 200 Health or more just because of those two reasons and obviously you will get first blood guaranteed (exept some other lane already did). But never Ignite someone with just three or four stacks. Maximun Damage output relies on those five stacks and Ignite.

Items

Items are a little bit more difficult.
IF you play Full AD and you don't care if the team combination works out, just like I do, you will always start with a Bloodthirster. Before the remake of Infinity, you'd start off with that. But sadly, it's without a crit chance now. Nevermind, you will be starting off with a Bloodthirster. It allows you to use a lot of AD Damage and has lifesteal. Just what you need to bully a lane. After that, you will go with a Stormrazor. Why? Because this thing is freaking overpowered! First autoattack is a crit, no matter what. A lot of high AD Damage and you get 20% bonus movement speed for 0.75 seconds.
Right after that, you want to build your first real critical attack item, which will be a Phantom Dancer. It has 30% crit., which you'll need combined with you incoming Infinity Edge, plus it allows you this sick ghosting buff to ignore unit collision and just go for the enemy champion. Just like Darius, you got big balls and you will go in for a fight and nothing will stop you. If you can carry your team till this moment, all is fine and you can buy the Infinity Edge to get your critical chance doubled and some more AD Damage, which is always profitable. If you get taken down buy some enemys because you became the main focus of the whole team, i suggest you start building the Black Cleaver even before Infinity Edge, because you will get a lot of Health that you'll need back. And the movement speed is sick as well after hitting someone/ something (It's all about the movement speed). So basically as the last two items, you can decide which one makes more sense for you.
As for the Boots, you wanna build them as early as possible. The Berserker's Greaves allow you essential attack speed, which you'll need to get your blood stacks faster. Always the best shoes on any AD Carry. If you play tank, I do prefer Armor or MR to counter all the enemys champions.

Farming/ Laning Phase

Trading with Q is the best way to bully your enemy. Try to hit him and the minions. Last hitting with Autoattacks and W (because your W gives you the amount of Mana back if u finish something off with it).
Keep trading on long terms. The longer the fight, the better is your chance. Sometimes fights seem to be lost when you're trading but you'll still win through your stacks of blood and the amount of extra AD you will get.
After level 6-7 it's over for your enemy, if you already got one or two kills.
However care for the enemy jungler. He will realise how much you bully his laner and probably camp you a lot. Best way to avoid being killed by this greedy jungler through buying Controle Wards. Experienced players already know that, but new players think they'll save money. Trust me: VISION IS KEY

Unique Skills

Autoattack reset is possible with your W. (If you didn't already knew)
Best combo: Autoattack someone (if possible), hook him with your E, instant 2nd Autoattack and follow up with an Autoattack reset with your W. Right after that you will try to hit your Q. If all of that worked out you'll probably have 3-4 stacks on your enemy. Just follow up with 1-2 Autoattacks and hit him him with A. Ignite when it is still laning phase and you are level 1-5 or B. with Ignite (if possible) and your R. If he is still not dead, follow up with some Autoattacks and he'll be crying and you will be living for those tears.

Another nice way to assassinate one of the enemys teammember is to Flash and E (Hook). He won't be expecting such a quick move if you did it right. Even as tank Darius it's a nice way to pick out their ADC's and follow up with a 5v4 teamfight. But in this case, it's just to assassinate a player before he even realised he is dead himself.

Team Work

There is no teamwork. Just go in and annihilate the enemy.
