Threats & Synergies
Start boots, rushing Adaptive Helm and Ninja Tabi. Focus on last hitting until first item, buy plenty of red wards post-6.
Respect the Darius. He outperforms you at every level of the game until group stage. Rush Thornmail and Ninja Tabis, focus on farming. Only engage with his Q down for a short scrape, hold your Q until once he slows you.
Beat him early and hard. Once he reaches 6, he will be a nightmare to deal with. Consider Bramblevest against Mundo.
Difficult lane to deal with. Rush ninja tabi. Scrap with him when his Q is down, but don't all in. Carefully fight him in Mega-Gnar.
