Threat Champion Notes
Sejuani Sejuani is no very good at Early game. So Aatrox can easily farm and start ganking. But during combats, her ultimate can easily stop you from doing anything, so watch out.

Champion's Lore

Aatrox is a legendary warrior, one of only five that remain of an ancient race known as the Darkin. He wields his massive blade with grace and poise, slicing through legions in a style that is hypnotic to behold. With each foe felled, 's seemingly living blade drinks in their blood, empowering him and fueling his brutal, elegant campaign of slaughter.

The earliest tale of is as old as recorded history. It tells of a war between two great factions remembered only as the Protectorate and the Magelords. Over time, the Magelords won a series of crushing victories, leaving them on the brink of obliterating their sworn enemy forever. On the day of their final confrontation, the Protectorate army found themselves outnumbered, exhausted, and poorly equipped. They braced for inevitable defeat.

Just when all hope seemed lost, appeared among the ranks of the Protectorate. With but a few words, he urged the soldiers to fight to the last before throwing himself into battle. His presence inspired the desperate warriors. At first, they could only watch in awe as this unknown hero cleaved through their enemies, his body and blade moving in unison as if one being. Soon, the warriors found themselves imbued with a potent thirst for battle. They followed into the fray, each fighting with the furious strength of ten until they had won a most unlikely victory.

vanished after that battle, but the Protectorate army's newfound fury did not. Their surprising triumph led to many more until they were able to finally return home victorious. Their countrymen hailed them as heroes, but though they had saved their entire civilization from destruction, darkness lingered in the mind of each warrior. Something within them had changed. Over time, their memories of battle faded, only to be replaced with a grim revelation: their acts of heroism were, in fact, brutal atrocities committed by their own hands.

Tales like these appear among the myths of many cultures. If they are all to be believed, 's presence has changed the course of some of the most important wars in history. Though these stories remember him as a savior in dark times, 's true legacy may be a world filled with conflict and strife.

''Some fight for honor, some fight for glory. It matters only that you fight.''

Hello everyone, I am Bronzer, and this is my Aatrox jungle guide. This is my first guide on MobaFire and I worked hard to make this guide the best I could, and I would appreciate any and all feedback that you guys may provide. Aatrox is a high damage but remain pretty tanky champion with his healing from Blood Thirst and Massacre.

Without further ado, I present to you, my dear readers, my Aatrox guide. I put a fair amount of effort into this guide, so I do implore you to reconsider any downvotes pending the actual trial and testing of my guide that I imagine you are planning to do. And above all, thank you for taking the time to read this Aatrox Guide.

Pros / Cons

+ Jungling without losing too many health.
+ Very high damage in Early game and Mid game.
+ Good at 1v1.
+ The ability to push turrets at the speed of light.
+ Free Guardian Angel

- Most of your skills are skillshot.
- Without your passive Blood Well, you are quite squishy.

Runes Reforged

Since Aatrox relies heavily on his Attack Speed, so this is my recommendation for Runes:

Lethal Tempo gives you a ton of Attack Speed, improve both of your damage, healing ability and you will gain your passive Blood Well much more faster, result in even more Attack Speed.
Since Aatrox's healing ability is pretty good, Overheal will give you some extra tankiness.
I usually go for more Life Steal, but if you want to have more Attack Speed, switch to Legend: Alacrity instead.
The Koreans choose this, so we choose this. No question!
Imagine buying 6 Life Steal items.
Make it harder for Aatrox to die, suitable for all type of teams./columns]

Summoner Spells

Flash: Is a common Summoner Spells for Aatrox because Flash can be used as a mean of escaping or chasing enemy after you have used Dark Flight

Smite: You are a jungler, you have to use this.

In this part, I will try to explain Aatrox abilities in a short way.
  • Aatrox's passive Blood Well: When your Blood Well is full ( look at the RED bar under health ), you will be in the SUPER SAIYAN MODE, gain extra physical damage and a ton of attack speed for 4 seconds. If you die during SAIYAN MODE, you will revive after a short time with 30% of your max health.
  • Q Dark Flight: You fly to the place that you have chosen like an ISIS Suicide Bomber and lock every enemies to the air and fill 20% of Blood Well
  • W Blood Thirst: You heal every 3 auto attacks. Blood Price Each 3 of your auto attacks deal more damage, fill 20% of Blood Well but you will lose health.
  • E Blades of Torment: You shoot 2 lines of laser like the way SUPERMAN does, deal damage and slow enemy down. Also fill 20% of Blood Well
  • R Massacre: You deal damage to all nearby enemies, gain more attack speed and more attack range. Gain 20% of Blood Well for each enemies you hit with Massacre.

For Aatrox, you should focus on sustain and healing items. With Aatrox, you need both damage and tankiness. And in my opnion, these items really suit the Aatrox's style.

We want this item for the Attack Speed it provides, so that we deal extreme damage to our enemies while we have more healing abilities.
This item seems to be very common for Aatrox. Blade of the Ruined King gives Aatrox extra damage and extra life steal. And its passive will help Aatrox clean out the Jungle much faster.
The reason I go for Frozen Mallet although it is not very popular because except from the knock up from Dark Flight, Aatrox has no hard CC. His E Blades of Torment which is a skill-shot might be hard to hit the enemies, so extra CC will help. Besides, Frozen Mallet provides Aatrox with 700 health ( the second most "HEALTHY" items in League of Legends ) and some damage, so Aatrox will last longer during combat and the slow effect will help him to land some Auto Attack on the enemies.
Just some extra Atack Speed since Aatrox has enough tankiness from his passive Blood Well and this build also provide Aatrox with some tankiness and sustain.
I usually go for this item because it provides you some extra tankiness when you are fighting against their ADC and their AD Fighters ( like Master Yi, Tryndamere,... ).
The core item for Aatrox. This item gives you some Magic Resist and Health. And the best thing is its passive: it increases all healing received by 30% so you will heal much faster.

In teamfights, Aatrox should be the one to go first. Aatrox should use his Q Dark Flight to lock up as many enemies possible to create an advantage for your team.
You should also use your R Massacre and start focus on the enemies' carries.
With Aatrox's damage and health, you should be able to survive long enough to land some incredible damages on the enemies' team.

*** WARNING ***, Dark Flight is Aatrox main escape method, so use it wisely.
