Aatrox Counters

Learn 's counters and discover matchups where they have an advantage! When you're starting a game of League of Legends you should always keep in mind if you'll be at an advantage or disadvantage against your opponent, so you can know whether to bully them or play safe. You can find detailed breakdowns of each matchup on CounterStats, and you can also check out some Aatrox guides to see how to build and play against other champions you may find yourself up against!


This counter data is for Aatrox Top in Plat+ games. The percent shown is the enemy champion's counter rating against Aatrox. Counter rating is our own statistic that factors in counter kills, overall kills, early lead ratio, comeback ratio, and win percent to give the whole picture of that champion's effectiveness as a counter pick.

Aatrox's Deathbringer Stance

Aatrox's Passive
Aatrox's Passive
Aatrox's next basic attack gains 50 bonus range and deals 5-12% of the target's maximum health as bonus physical damage (depending on level), while healing Aatrox for 100% of the bonus physical damage dealt (reduced to 25% against minions). This damage is capped at 100 against monsters.

Deathbringer Stance's cooldown is reduced by 2 seconds whenever Aatrox hits at least one champion or large monster with a basic attack on-hit or an ability. The cooldown is further reduced by 2 seconds if he hits with the Sweetspot of The Darkin Blade.
Q
Aatrox's The Darkin Blade

14 / 12 / 10 / 8 / 6
Aatrox swings his greatsword in the target direction, striking enemies in a line. The Darkin Blade can then be reactivated twice within 4 seconds, with the second cast refreshing the timer. The second cast strikes enemies in a cone and the third in the target area.

The first cast deals 10 / 30 / 50 / 70 / 90 (+0.6 / 0.65 / 0.7 / 0.75 / 0.8 per attack damage) physical damage, increasing by 25% on the second cast and 50% on the third. The Darkin Blade deals 55% damage to minions.

Hitting enemies at the far end of the first two casts and the center of the third deals 50% bonus damage and knocks up enemies for 0.25 seconds. Monsters are knocked up for 0.5 seconds instead.
W
Aatrox's Infernal Chains
Infernal Chains Aatrox's W Ability

20 / 18.5 / 17 / 15.5 / 14
Aatrox smashes the ground in the target direction, creating a chain that stops on the first enemy hit, dealing 30 / 40 / 50 / 60 / 70 (+0.4 per attack damage) physical damage (doubled against minions) and slowing them by 25% for 1.5 seconds.

If Infernal Chains hits a champion or large monster, they are chained to the impact area. If the chained enemy is still in the impact area after 1.5 seconds, they are dragged to the center and take the same damage again.
E
Aatrox's Umbral Dash
Umbral Dash Aatrox's E Ability
300
0
9 / 8 / 7 / 6 / 5
Aatrox heals for 20 / 22.5 / 25 / 27.5 / 30% of the persistent post-mitigation damage he deals against enemy champions, increased during World Ender.

ACTIVE: Aatrox dashes in the target direction.

Umbral Dash resets Aatrox's basic attack timer. Umbral Dash can be cast during his other abilities without cancelling them, and vice versa.

Umbral Dash may cast across terrain with an increased dash range. This may upscale his dash speed so that the dash takes the same total time as the standard maximum-range dash.
R
Aatrox's World Ender
World Ender Aatrox's Ultimate (R) Ability
Self
0
120 / 100 / 80 / 80 / 80
After 0.25 seconds, Aatrox reveals his true demonic form for 10 seconds. On activation, he fears nearby enemy minions for 3 seconds and gains 60 / 80 / 100% bonus movement speed, decaying over the duration.

While World Ender persists, Aatrox gains 20 / 25 / 30% bonus attack damage and receives 30 / 45 / 60% increased self-healing.

On enemy champion takedown, the duration of World Ender is extended by 5 seconds and the movement speed increase is refreshed.
