Threats & Synergies
Dodge his q's and ur gucci.
Dodge her E and try to fight her without her passive stacks.
You outdamage her. If you still struggle against her, try to dodge her slingshots.
Fight him when is q is on cd, try to dodge his knockup too!
Hes actually the only one who can outdamage you. When he is charging his Q, make sure you E him. The rest is base mechanics :)
He can't do shit against you. Just build merc boots and ur gucci.
A good garen would go for short-trades. Make sure you make him do long-trades. His W is like 23 seconds on CD, make use of that.
His goal is farming, deny him every cs you can. If you do not deny even a little bit of cs, he can scale faster then wich is cancer to deal with. You still beat him 1v1, try not to stand in his E (circle) when fighting.
Tahm Kench is a tricky one. Only OTP's play him and they're very good. Try to dodge his Q and build MR early on.
He is a little kitty-cat that is only good at jumping on targets. Enemies going in melee range for Darius? Is this a dream? You basically rekt him.
Dodge his Q's, wich is really easy. Make sure your passive is still up when he is resurrecting then kill him with ease.
Like Nasus, bully him really hard and dodge his Q.
Fight him when he has no rage. Do short-trades with him because he has insane crit chances.
He will run out of mana really quick because is he hitting is Q on u or his minions. Catch him off-guard with ur E and wait till he uses his W (oranges) THEN use ur W.
Just dodge his Q and go in, you outdamage him.
He is cancer to deal with I know. Try to fight him when he uses his Q on minions. Like GP, try to catch him off-guard with your E and AA+W+AA+Q+AA and then try to ult if he is low. Rush Phage early on to get that movement speed.
He is a short-trade fighter. Make sure it is a long-trade fight. Dodge his combo and ur gucci.
Just dodge her Q and try not to stand against the wall.
Fight him early on when he uses his W passive on minions.
Fight her early on when she uses her Q's on minions and try to E her third Q.
He is a short-trade fighter. Make sure he sticks to you when he is done with his combo on you. You win long-trade fights.
Try to stand against the wall where her passive is facing and when she ults, always stand against a wall so she cannot proc her ult. BEWARE SHE CAN W YOUR ULT!
Pretty cancer to deal with early on with his damage. Try to rush Phage and fight him only on 1 side of his legs because if you let him go around you with his legs, you'll die really quick. If you can, try to dodge his ult.
He outdamages you when he gets sheen. Make sure you fight him without his sheen (early game). Wait for him to use E and when he jumps on you, just use E and run away.
Wait for his big ooga booga form and fight him when he is in that form. Dodge his big ooga booga Q and ur gucci.
He is a short-trade fighter, try to fight him with long fights, if you can try to ask for help from ur jungler.
Try to get boots and a Phage early on. Fight her when her form is down.
She is absolute cancer, get help from jungler asap.
Just like Kayle try to get boots and a Phage early on. Get help from jungler asap.
Try to dodge his Q's and ur gucci.
Try to fight her without her tentacles around. Dodge her Q's and her E and ur gucci. When she ults, just run away.
Try to dodge her Q and get boots+Phage early on to catch her. Get help from jungler asap.
Try to E his W and fight him with long-trades.
My name is Dmitr (my actual name irl) and i'm some hardstuck D5 pleb.
I've played League of Legends since like season 6, and have mained Darius since season 6. My second best role is jungle, I play Warwick in the jungle. Ever since season 8 I've been low Diamond. League of Legends has always been my main game :D . The thing that I love about League is that you always learn something new every game.
I play every role except support. I love playing Draven too!
This is your go-to rune page because you'll always go conqueror.
You deal true damage and get bonus AD, wich is perfect for Darius.
Use this for tanks or bruisers.
If you have trouble in laning or you're are new with Darius, I suggest you picking this rune page because you'll be tankier early game and have a good sustain.
If you're an expierenced Darius player then you should take this rune page with Phase Rush, you'll snowball more easier and have some good movement speed wich is actually good for Darius.
Not that great for dealing damage.
Trinity Force is the best item ever for Darius. It gives you a lot of movement speed and cooldown reduction.
The Sheen proc with your W is just a nuke for squishy targets.
If u play against a heavy AD teamcomp or a lot of autoattacker's then you should take Ninja Tabi's
If you're fighting against a heavy cc comp or a heavy ap team then you should take mercury treads.
Steraks Gage is great for Darius.
It gives you AD, HP and a great shield, you will catch alot of people off-guard in teamfights with the Steraks Gage passive.
This item is for the champions who crit alot, it's nice for a teamfight AoE slow too!
Great item for going in deep :)
You'll be revived and your team has probably already cleaned up the fight.
It gives AD and Armor wich is also nice.
Good item for having alot of movement speed. You also get a empowered Auto Attack!
ANTI KITE ITEM!
This is for the AP champions on the enemy team.
The %healing also works on your Q wich is nice!
