Noxius Glory - In detpth Darius 9.6 Guide

By godv4r
Hello everyone! I am godv4r and this is my daruis guide, I love this champ very much due to Darius 1v5 potential and ability to carry the game and I would like to share the information with you all!. I hope you enjoy my guide, and would greatly appreciate any feedback you have. Feel free to leave any comments with questions regarding gameplay as well!

Thank you all for taking the time to read my Dariusguide!!!
Why darius?
Darius is one of the few champions in the league that can make a one-man carry montage. Darius has the ability to melt everyone in team fights due to his ult, and that means, his laning phase become super important. Darius is also a lane bully, there are barely any champs that can 1v1 Darius level 1.
Pros/Cons

PROS


+ One of the strongest early-game champions
+ Snowballs hard
+ Strong in team fights
+ tanky but lots of true dmg
+ Can possibliy make 1v5
+ Easy to learn


Darius is a champion that if played correctly, can make
1v5 or even 1v9 games, the abilities he has destined him
to be a hero that can save the game. His abilities have
1 forced movement , 1 90% slow , 1 healing and 1 dmg dealer .

CONS


+ Has no mobility
+ Can be kite easily
+ Weak at late game
+ Weak when fall behind
+ Hard to really Master


Darius can't do anything and gets beat up 1v1 when he falls behind
due to his low ad scale abilities. Although he is very strong early game,
he falls super hard late game if you didn't snowball really hard.
Which will made him really useless.
Runes
After the conqueror rework, the runes still fits Darius pretty well. The 5 stacks and Darius passive fits perfectly which you can get a 10% healing of your ult and 110% on your Q. I think the new conqueror definitely made Darius so much stronger in the team fights after triggered his passive.

This rune didn't change any since it came out. Definitely, the best rune when you laning against the range champions that moves really quick.

Many people could be confused about why I suggest this rune instead of the attack speed, the reason being is that in the mid-late team fights, as a front liner, you will get a lot of cc from the enemy team, in order to carry, you need to make sure that you don't get cc for too long to do dmg. The other reason is in the small rune tree, we got 10% attack speed, and Darius doesn't really rely on attack speed to trigger his passive and that's the reason why I choose this rune.

last standing This rune is just for more outplay potential and more healing when you are below 30% HP, if you want your ult to do more dmg, you can choose Coup de Grace too.

Is always the secondary tree you want to take all the time, as a melee bruiser, resolve tree's keystone are all very important to you.

You might be wondering why don't you take bone plating? The reason behind that causes bone plating is not a good rune on Darius overall, either second wind or Conditioning are just better runes for early or mid-game. I will only take it when it's a Riven match up.

Conditioning is the best rune you can find for Darius. The amour and mr increase rate is huge, people really underestimate this rune. A normal Darius 10 mins can have Ninja Tabi for sure, and ninja tabi gives 20 amours. Which means Darius can have over 100 amours at 10 mins. At that point, no one would able to 1v1 you.

This rune is just designed for Darius, the amount of healing will increase by 15% when under 40% hp. When this rune and last standing combine, you will heal more than you expected, and it is the key rune to help you to
comeback at low hp.


This rune is super useful to Darius when they have a poking and kiting team comp, this is where is rune would be super useful, you can have up to 50% tenacity in team fights and the movement speed Ghost gives to you can let you and your team chase down or start a fight really easily due to the giant movement speed you have.
items
Raptor Cloak is the main item for Darius, the biggest weakness of Darius is that he has no mobility, Raptor Cloak really helps you to cover that weakness up, not only the movement speed, the amour this item gives to you compare to its price is very efficient.

Trinity Force The main damage item for Darius is very important, Darius's W can trigger both of its passive, rage and spell blades, the extra dmg spell blades gives you is huge, the rage also makes you move faster and mobility isn't a big problem for Darius now.

Other items will be mostly tanky, but if you are really ahead, death dance would be the best item. At late game, you can upgrade your Raptor Cloak into zz'portal to let the wave push into the enemy base.

Overall, I think the Trinity Force and Raptor Cloak are the 2 main items that you should always get in your games. When you are behind Black Cleaver would be a good choice too, since it gives movement speed and stacks up dmg really fit into the runes and Darius too.
Thank you!!
Darius is an incredible champion that can easily be one-tricked or picked up for a few games. A champion that has a 1v9 potential. If you have any comments, questions or queries about my guide, feel free to post them in guide comments, and I will answer them as soon as I can get to them.

Have a great season on the rift!
