I didn't want to build a "in depth guide" because no one has the time and effot to read everything those guides say so I wanted to make it as simple as possible
I apologize that I couldn't go over every detail about darius within this guide espically if you had thoughts that weren't properly answered
I am likely to update this guide in the near future
