Welcome to my first Aatrox Guide!

I have played Aatrox since rework and always look for off-meta builds to see what can or cannot be optimized. So to start off, I have a small disclaimer:

Disclaimer: Builds given are to be played at most optimal levels for maximum effect. "Off-Meta" refers to builds that the majority of the population do not play. I am not responsible for your elo loss.

I hope that you keep in mind that this is an "off-meta" build. However, the build works with the meta due to hullbreaker and healing nerfs, so take what you will. Wish you the best of luck!

Main Build

  • Duskblade
  • Why go nerfed Goredrinker when you can abuse invis and slow?
  • Lethality and Ability Haste allow you to have a super strong early game. Aggressive playstyles encouraged.
  • Death's Dance
  • Takedown healing is broken when the rest of the champions don't have healing.
  • Popping World Ender and getting resets on DD allow you to sustain full teamfights.
  • Ravenous Hydra
  • Supposedly Goredrinker has omnivamp powers.
  • However, Ravenous Hydra not only has the same % omnivamp, but also gives more AD and wave clear so Aatrox can fast clear to roam.
  • Early tiamat and late game healing utility.
  • Spirit Visage
  • Offers tankiness, MR, 25% bonus healing from all sources.
  • Perfect for teamfighting sustain.
  • Serylda's Grudge
  • No CD slow on every single Q.
  • Auto for Duskblade slow, then stack Q -> AA -> W -> Q -> E -> Q.

Suboptimal Items

  • Goredrinker
  • Healing and some sustain
  • However due to nerfs on Conq + Goredrinker + Ravenous Hunter, it is no longer necessary to build so much healing at the cost of other utilties
  • StrideBreaker
  • 40% slow and stacking MS is great for mobility and landing Q.
  • Go StrideBreaker if you want to learn Aatrox, however keep in mind that this item does not offer the same amount of damage/sustain as Goredrinker.
  • SB requires a more defensive macro heavy playstyle.


W + E + Q + AA + Q + AA + Q

R + Q + W + E + AA + Q + AA + Q

Play aggressively and look for mistakes:
  • When the enemy walks into Q range
  • Enemy used flash and now in E + Q range
  • Pushed up too close to your tower: W initiate
  • Multiple enemies in Q knock up range
Late Game
Aatrox usually falls off hard post 4 items. However, with this build, you have enough utility to not fall off.
Switch boots for Phantom Dancer.
