A New Take On Aatrox: Grasp + TriForce Build Guide

By HoldMySake
Who I Am
Hi! I'm HoldMySake. Making this guide because I'm bored.
Why Grasp+Triforce Back to Top
Conqueror is more of a teamfight rune. But honestly, he's already pretty strong in teamfights, I just don't see the point. Grasp + Sheen + AA makes his early trading very strong, which I like personally. Credits for this build go to iZeal in EUW.
Runes Back to Top


Grasp of the Undying:

Read the above.


Gives a lot of pushing power, which is good for a lack of AD early.

Second Wind:

Against poke matchups.

Bone Plating:

Against all-in.


For stacking HP. I like Overgrowth a bit more over Revitalize for the tankiness, but both are pretty good.


For more healing. Again, I like Overgrowth a bit more over Revitalize for the tankiness, but both are pretty good.



Magical Footwear:

Free 300 gold is huge, especially with this expensive build.

Cosmic Insight:

Pair this with a scaling CDR shard for a lot of CDR early to spam your abilities a lot more.


Taste of Blood:

More early healing for better early trades.

Ravenous Hunter:

A lot of lifesteal if you stack it up.
Build Back to Top
Starting Items:

Doran's Shield:

My starting item in all of my games. The bonus health and healing makes it very hard to push you out of lane.

Doran's Blade:

Also a viable option, but lacks tankiness in exchange for damage.

Long Sword:

The option for RAW MASCULINE DAMAGE. Good for rushing Tiamat or a lethality item.

First Back Items:


Not the most ideal item, but it's the best one out of the 3 because you can't abuse the movespeed of Phage and Stinger is Stinger.

Cloth Armor:

If you're having trouble against AD. Upgrade it into a Bramble Vest if they heal a lot.

Null-Magic Mantle:

If you're having trouble against AP.

Control Ward:


Core Items:

Trinity Force:

Mostly for the Sheen passive, making his E pretty good as an AA reset.

Ninja Tabi:

Against heavy AD.

Mercury's Treads:

Against heavy AP.

Death's Dance:

Not buying Death's Dance on Aatrox is trolling. It gives him everything he wants, CDR, Tankiness, and AD.
Items I Don't Like Back to Top
Instead of going over each option of item, I'll go through items other people build on Aatrox that I'm not a fan of.

Guardian Angel:

Yes, we all miss the revive. But GA just isn't that good. Usually Sterak's Gage is better, as it gives more AD and also makes you HUGE.

Maw of Malmortius:

This is definitely an "if you're ahead" item, but in general I think Spirit Visage is a better buy, as it makes you tankier and also makes you heal more.
