I've been basically an Aatrox main since season 4 when i got 2 unofficial penta kills in a row in a game. I have mainly played him top lane, but recently switched to Jungle as a lot of the match ups top lane aren't ideal. I love the way Aatrox plays, feels and especially the way he looks. I'm making this in depth guide to help out other Aatrox enthusiasts. Now the item build that I go with AA isn't the only build he can go, he in my humble opinion is one of the few champions that can be built any way you see fit. I've played him AP, i've played him Crit, I've played him tank, and I've had success with all of them. Bruisers just scale so well this season, especially a bruiser like AA.

Aatrox's runes are going to stay the same in basically all situations. Attack Speed Quints, AD Reds, Armor Yellows, Scaling MR Blues. (Note I always take 1 crit chance red, you'd be surprized how many times it surprises you and your enemies)

With my AAtrox build you'll generally want to go 18/0/12. It all fits his kit very well, I've tried all of the key stones on AA, and i find the most success with this. Fervor late game I feel is the reason you outscale a lot of other champions.

Ravenous Hydra, BloodRazor, are the 2 core items for a jungle AA, everything else you build is based off of the individual match, and who on the enemy team is the biggest threat. With these 2 offensive items, Boots SV GA and RO you will be extremely hard to kill, as well as do surprising amounts of damage for how tanky you are. A lot of people would say that AA needs BoTRK, but with Bloodrazor, I feel you only need to add a BOTRK to the build if they have a fed tank, or they have 3 tanks (IE tank top tank jungler and tank support). Also note that if you are your teams main engage, you should build titanic, and become tanky fast.

Skill Sequence

W is by far AA's best skill, toggle it on for extra dmg, toggle it off for extra healing. This allows AA to continue power farming jungle after getting low from a gank. Max E next for more damage and lower CD for more spammability. Max Q last, I've tried maxing Q second for extra mobility, but E has a lower CD and allows you to stick to your targets better. Especially when chained with Blue smite. Obviously like 99% of champs in LoL level R whenever possible. On a side note, the opener combo you will want to do is W (hit 2 minions so you can have its 3 hit passive up) set to damage, E>Q>AA>R>AA>Tiamet> and most squishies will be dead. If you guys would like some video guides to this and my jungle route let me know and I'll add them.

Flash and Smite are my preferences, Flash + Q allows your to initiate from a surprising distance or get out of sticky situations (like they popped your passive as soon as you revive flash, then Q over a wall.) Ghost and Exhaust are viable but IMO not as good.

-Q can be interrupted
-Hard to know your limits
-After reviving no passive Attack Speed
-Can be Kited
-Misuse of W will get you killed

He is a great champion that is easy to learn. He scales well and will surprise enemies late game, since a lot of people don't know how to deal with late game Aatrox since he isn't played that often. He can carry as long as you know your limits. Overall I hope this guide was helpful, please comment if you would like specific details that I didn't include in this guide.
