Threats & Synergies
Akali can mark and deal burst damage, but she lacks two things, a way to heal her self through self sustain and a build capable of tanking my lethality damage. Expect good results when fighting the rogue assassin
Akshan can deal damage I'll give him that, but he's about as squishy if not more so than a stress ball. Just hit him with at least the last sweet spot in Q combo and maybe one more and he's gonzo like the great gonzo from muppets.
Okay this dude is about as squishy as Akshan is but he's not as capable a champion to fight you anywhere, not just in the top lane. He's squishy and quite frankly only does good when the rest of the team does good. I may have picked up on him but a quick piece of advice would be to be cautious when fighting him because when he gets shieldbow, it will wreak havoc. But rend him early and he's useless
Aatrox has no time for the Emperor of the Sands. I mean, swelling ranks means nothing if Aatrox is so strong he kills the original with the greatest of ease
I'd put this at 5 because of her adaptive shielding but that's only if you go meta Aatrox. Her shield will be useless if you go lethality as it'll render it ineffective as paper against a greatsword. If I had to say anything, build plated steelcaps to mitigate some of the damage
Cassiopeia can be played top lane but her grounding means nothing because it may not let you dash but she has no added mobility so you should still be able to reach her with your greatsword
Cho'gath can heal when he kills a unit but it's a minor heal and it means less than nothing if you can deal even more damage with one W cast which is technically your weakest ability even though all of Aatrox's abilities are hyper broken. All you have to do is heal hard and long enough to avoid getting eaten and you'll be fine
The first extreme threat on here is not a pretty one. Darius hella powerful bleeding damage can completely offset your Omnivamp, I know this because I've seen Hashinshin lose hard to him. I have only one option to give you. DO. NOT. FIGHT. HIM!!!
What's a mundo? is that a joke? He must be because his passive is useless against you and his self sustain is worthless compared to yours. Simply try not to get hit by his rampant slowing (blunt force trauma and cleaver) and you will be better than fine
If you can catch him, he's easy pickings. Not otherwise. He'll smack you from range and kite you endlessly. Do me a solid and pretend you never saw this. I've only seen this twice but neither were against my Aatrox gameplay. But always expect the unexpected
Aatrox says that this is a duel she will not win. Don't believe that, her ult cooldown is busted and heals her non-stop for 5 seconds. Simply don't even try to fight and wait for some help
Guns and oranges? Are you a cliché or a joke? Come! Fight! Die! Said the Aatrox to the Gangplank. Aatrox's attacks can't be stopped by GP's citrus and the only threat to Aatrox is GP getting strong by spamming his ult out the wazoo all over the map and getting assists off of it
God I hate Garen. He's not impossible to beat but he's almost there. He passive regens practically all of his health in like a minute unless you hit him and stop the healing for 8 seconds. Keep on the pressure and attack attack attack!!!
Gnar can either be ranged and squishy or melee and tanky. either option messes with you. He's not commonly played so that's a good thing but try to avoid fighting
Gragas has obscene CC and annoying strength. His barrels are the AP version of Gangplank's. And they are dangerous. And be careful of his stupid belly fat. It'll knock you off course and stop you from dashing optimally
Graves does damage and can nearsight you but not much more than that. He gets whacked otherwise. You simply heal too much and deal too much damage. Don't be overcautious but also not undercautious (that a word?)
Get inside her stupid W and she is remotely helpless against you. Keep in mind she does severe true damage that no defense can stop. But if you are smart and evade it, she can't snip snip on you.
Heimerdinger is extremely broken and his turrets are worse. They can negate any healing you have by offsetting it with damage and then he deals more damage with W or E. He can annihilate you and pierce right through you like a stone to a pane of glass. Dangerous.
Those tentacles can be targeted and that's what makes them so deadly. They divert attention from Illaoi while she just spams you with more abilities. Whatever you do, do not get hit by that stupid E of hers. It will tear apart your health bar
Mobile and annoying but not impossible to kill. Her healing is a factor, but she literally will never out-heal you. Works for you entirely because you have insane amounts of CC. So much fun right?
Although able to block your passive enhanced auto, he cannot block your Q Sweet Spots. Use that to your advantage. He can't beat you if he can't block you.
I'd call this extreme simply because he can be melee or ranged. Land your Q's on him and you win but if you can subdue him long enough to deal large amounts of damage, well, it's a wrap
He loses health on cast of his ult and can easily be CC'd to death with your constant Q/W spamming. It's quite the simple task to obliterate this prideful warrior
