Hi! Thanks for the guide. As they are continuing to weaken Aatrox in 9.3, what changes to the items or runes should be done?

When will you add at least a few general or most common matchups for Aatrox?

Thank you! I haven't quite had the time to test all the possible synergies and matchups that Aatrox could experience, but hopefully I'll have something to report soon.

How would Glacial Augment Aatrox be build? Like items to utilize the rune etc.

Not a whole lot would change. You basically just get to pick up an item other than Frozen Mallet because the rune does that for you.

Would you buy active items to utilize Glacial Augment or would you just stick to your standard build?

What does the premitigation-physical damage on Aatrox's E mean? Does the heal come from ability damage or auto attacks or physical damage overall? This word confuses me tbh

"Premidigation physical damage" simply means the total physical damage you deal before factoring in armor or (though it's not relevant here) magic resist. What that means is that if you were to deal 300 damage to another champion, whether that is by an auto-attack or by your The Darkin Blade, and theoretically that enemy champion had 100% armor, you would do no damage to the enemy, but still heal 300 health. Hope that helps!

Personally I think grasp usually doesn't work also the dark harvest can be good but it has flaws sometimes. Overall though I think its a solid build!

I appreciate your support! I think it's good to try new builds out and learn for yourself what kind of build you enjoy playing with. I tried to do that with guide by providing multiple solutions to the potential problems you might have playing Aatrox. Please let me know if you think I can improve on anything!

Very useful guide, thank you. Do you think it's normal to main jungle aatrox and what do you think about him?

Neatkhajiit (1) | October 25, 2018 11:19am
Of course! I think Aatrox doesn't quite have the mobility of other junglers, but he has the lockdown potential to secure kills. I personally prefer him in lane, but he doesn't have any problem jungling.

I'm a simple man. I see enemy Aatrox taking conqueror, I thank them for the free win.

I've been thinking about swapping out my Conqueror build for the Comet build just because of how strong it is right now. It's really all about preference, and newer players will probably have an easier time with Conqueror. But hey, at least I helped someone win!

It's not about preference as Conqueror on Aatrox is simply inferior, unless you're going some kind of off meta attack-speedesque build. Conqueror drops the win-rate of Aatrox severely compared to both Electrocute and Arcane Comet. Which one of you take of the two would depend on the match up, but there is simply no match up where Conqueror is superior. Neither statistically nor theoretically.

In the life steal section you wrote about the rather poor effectiveness of BT. Have you thought about a build with attack speed to utilize BT? I know Aatrox would be far more sqishy without the tank items and the fact that there are only a few attack speed items that would fit for him, but I am still curious about your thoughts on that...

Neatkhajiit (1) | October 15, 2018 7:14am
I have thought about it, and I feel like buildimg attack speed around a single item would be risky. His passive cooldown does not decrease on auto-attack, which would make attack speed great on him. Aatrox doesn't quite have the kit to allow him to utilize high attack speed.
