In ancient times, long before desert sands swallowed the empire, a mighty champion of Shurima was brought before the Sun Disc to become the avatar for a now forgotten celestial ideal. Remade as one of the Ascended, his wings were the golden light of dawn, and his armor sparkled like a constellation of hope from beyond the great veil. Aatrox was his name. He was at the vanguard of every noble conflict. So true and just was his conduct that other god-warriors would always gather at his side, and ten thousand mortals of Shurima marched behind him. When Setaka, the Ascended warrior-queen, called for his help against the rebellion of Icathia, Aatrox answered without hesitation. But no one predicted the extent of the horrors that the rebels would unleash—the Void quickly overwhelmed its Icathian masters, and began the grinding annihilation of all life it encountered. After many years of desperate battle, Aatrox and his brethren finally halted the Void’s perverse advance, and seared the largest rifts shut. But the surviving Ascended, the self-described Sunborn, had been forever changed by what they had encountered. Though Shurima had triumphed, they all had lost something in their victory... even noble Aatrox. And in time, Shurima fell, as all empires must. Without any monarch to defend, or the existential threat of the Void to test them, Aatrox and the Sunborn began to clash with one another, and eventually this became a war for the ruins of their world. Mortals fleeing the conflict came to know them instead by a new and scornful name: the darkin. Fearing that these fallen Ascended were as dangerous to Runeterra’s survival as the Void incursions had been, the Targonians intervened. It is said that the Aspect of Twilight gave mortals the knowledge to trap the darkin, and the newly reborn Aspect of War united many in fighting back against them. Never fearing any foe, Aatrox and his armies were ready, and he realized only too late that they had been deceived. A force greater than a thousand dead suns pulled him inside the sword he had carried into battle countless times, and forever bound his immortal essence to it. The weapon was a prison, sealing his consciousness in suffocating, eternal darkness, robbing him even of the ability to die. For centuries, he strained against this hellish confinement... until some nameless mortal was foolish enough to try and wield the blade once more. Aatrox seized upon this opportunity, forcing his will and an imitation of his original form onto his bearer, though the process quickly drained all life from the new body. In the years that followed, Aatrox groomed many more hosts—men and women of exceptional vitality or fortitude. Though his grasp of such magics had been limited in life, he learned to take control of a mortal in the span of single breath, and in battle he discovered he could feast on his victims to build himself ever larger and stronger. Aatrox traveled the land, searching desperately, endlessly, for a way return to his previous Ascended form… but the riddle of the blade proved unsolvable, and in time he realized he would never be free of it. The flesh he stole and crudely shaped began to feel like a mockery of his former glory—a cage only slightly larger than the sword. Despair and loathing grew in his heart. The heavenly powers that Aatrox had once embodied had been wiped from the world, and all memory. Raging against this injustice, he arrived at a solution that could only be born of a prisoner’s desperation. If he could not destroy the blade or free himself, then he would embrace oblivion instead. Now, Aatrox marches toward this merciless goal, bringing war and death wherever he goes. He clings to a blind hope: if he can drive all of creation into a final, apocalyptic battle—where everything, everything else is destroyed—then maybe he and the blade will also cease to exist.

Hello everyone!

Duff here, and I am one of the best Aatrox players around today! He was the centerpiece in my journey to Diamond, bringing in a 70% win rate in Platinum 1 and rocketing me into Diamond! I play Aatrox at a very high level, and I can teach you the fundamentals with video clips.

This guide is going to be solely devoted to video gameplay of Aatrox, there will be no written guide here!

It's a new way for me to show you how game by game how I vary builds, without proposing one way for you to play the champion. You can also see methods being imposed rather than just read about them and trying to figure out what's going on. You will learn zone control and when to aggro and play passively here as well!

The hope is that it opens your minds to flexible item paths, and therefore will not only improve you guys as Aatrox players, but improve you as League of Legends players as well.

It's a new concept of helping the community that I want to try out, hope you enjoy!

As new content is created, new content will be loaded in here so check back from time to time! :]

Any individual/specific questions or comments on the Aatrox, please do comment them and I will be happy to answer any questions!

Thank you, and Enjoy! :]

And the win rate; The win rate is almost 100% solo Q in Diamond 5 so far. I have played a few arranged ranked 5s against diamond level teams with him but just a game or two.

Duff, signing out!

Thanks again for stopping by and I hope these video clips have helped you to become a better Aatrox player!

Any questions you have will be answered in the comments section by me rather than having to be searched up in a long guide.

As I play Aatrox and continue to get more video I will deposit the clips here in this guide, so you can refer to here or to my highlights on http://www.twitch.tv/dufftime/videos for reference! :]

Take it easy guys, and if you like what you see in the video I suggest you follow my stream so you can see some of the action live and chat with me and my viewers! :]

Bye! :]
