    Is jungle Aatrox viable?

    Would he be good or even relevant in a jungler position? I would think he would be alright due to his W heal after three AA. Also, he would have a easy time when engaging in a gank from his Q.

    I've tried to make him work as a jungler. He is better as a Top laner in match-ups that he can dominate, because if he gets ahead he can simply split-push and it takes three people to deal with him.

    You aren't going to get into that dominating position out of the jungle, especially as OTGBionicArm points out, going Enchantment: Devourer as it delays your power spike too long.

    He can take Dragon at level 3 though that isn't worth as much since everyone gets the timer and a big fat announcement that you've taken it.

    Passive or no, unless stupidly ahead he just doesn't survive long enough in team fights to make that much of a difference. Someone like Xin Zhao does everything Aatrox does in the jungle but better.

    Yeah but every Xin I've seen spams devo bork mobos and, much like every aatrox, warwick, master yi and udyr I see, is utter garbage. Somehow only Shyvana players seem to make it work.

    Aatrox is passable as a jungler, but he's overall a mediocre champion.

    He has good sustain and decent ganks with good diving abilities, but he falls short on things like clear speed and mobility. Another issue is that his itemization is weird for a champion of his caliber, he ideally wants a Bork or Hydra, but that will be delayed for his jungle item.

    Just promise me you wont go Devo Bork and be worthless. Warrior or Cinderhulk with 1 damage item max.

    Nope, he's w is bugged with sated and at the end of the day is just a worse version of many other junglers - zac,rengar,master yi, etc
