Aatrox Top

By MythicMike
Early game as Aatrox can be quite tough. One thing you have to remember is to not waste your Q's. Once your enemy walks up for CS, you can poke him with the first Q and then let it go on cooldown, unless he keeps walking forward. Once you level up you can play a bit more aggressive, poking with 2 Q's before backing off. Once you're level 3 you can look to get a kill with your W- Infernal Chains or at least chunk his health quite a bit so that he's forced to play passively. Watch your cooldowns. Especially your Q cooldown. once Q is on CD, play a bit safer and wait for it to come back up. A good top laner will always look to punish you when you're waiting for Q CD.

This is where Aatrox starts to shine. You should have some CDR items and gotten your R- World Ender. By this point you should keep harassing your opponent if he tries to CS and make him scared to walk up. When he suddenly walks up you'll know a gank is incoming and be ready to use your R- World Ender. If you hit your Q's properly you can easily take them both. Just concentrate on the lowest HP target and then once you've finished off one of them, you will extend your R- World Ender, giving you movement speed to kill or scare off the other champion.

In the late game you want to group up with your allies and try to force teamfights where you can dish out a ton of damage. You want to mainly focus their backline and also hit as many people as possible when you throw out your Q's.

Q-W-Q-E-AA-Q-AA

This is my main combo on Aatrox. I hit my first Q to knock them up, making it easier to land W- Infernal Chains. When they try to walk out of the W, i hit them with a second Q that knocks them up and prevent them from walking out of W. I usually use my E- Umbral Dash to gap close on my second Q, but it's not always that you need to if you're in a good position. And lastly we wait a split second for them to be dragged back by W- Infernal Chains and use the last Q into an Auto attack. You can change up the order and do W- Infernal Chains first if you're just out of range and need to slow them down.



AA-E-AA

Your E- Umbral Dash can cancel your first auto attack animation by doing a very short E and auto attacking again. This combo is very relevant early on, but later you don't find it used as much since you have lower cooldown on your Q



Q- Flash-AA

You use this combo when you don't have E available and know that if you land your next Q, you will kill them. Usually i combo the Flash with my 3rd Q. You can also use this combo when you have E available to get extra distance.
