Aatrox, the Darkin Blade is a melee champion who rewards an aggressive and self-destructive play-style. A legendary yet enigmatic warrior, he has appeared throughout history to offer his aid to failing armies, filling them with a supernatural blood-lust and leading them to victory. But he always vanished, leaving his allies with the realization of the atrocities they committed under his command. Now, Aatrox has re-emerged to make his mark upon history once more, and influence the greatest war of this time.

Aatrox uses health instead of mana to use his abilities, and stores all self-inflicted damage with his passive, Blood Well.png Blood Well. This reserve pool increases Aatrox's attack speed depending on how much health is stored, and can even revive Aatrox in the event of death. His first ability, Dark Flight.png Dark Flight, sends him hurtling toward the target area, which can damage and disperse grouped enemies and leave them vulnerable to Aatrox's teammates. His second ability, Blood Thirst.png Blood Thirst, allows him quickly to recover from injuries by stealing an opponent's health, and can be alternated with Blood Price.png Blood Price to instead sacrifice health to deal bonus damage. His third ability, Blades of Torment.png Blades of Torment, fires a converging energy wave that damages and slows multiple enemies from afar. His ultimate ability, Massacre.png Massacre, damages nearby enemies and briefly grants Aatrox longer attack range and bonus attack speed.


Aatrox's secondary resource bar displays his Blood Well.png Blood Well. Whenever Aatrox uses an ability that costs health, he stores 100% of the self-inflicted damage into his Blood Well.png Blood Well, which can hold up to 105 / 138 / 171 / 207 / 244 / 283 / 323 / 365 / 408 / 453 / 500 / 548 / 598 / 649 / 702 / 756 / 813 / 870 health. If Aatrox has not dealt nor received damage in the last 5 seconds, his Blood Well will deplete at a rate of 2% per second.

Blood Well
Blood Well

Aatrox's attack speed is increased by 0.6 / 0.7 / 0.8 / 0.9 / 1 / 1.1% for every 2% in his Blood Well, up to a maximum of 30 / 35 / 40 / 45 / 50 / 55% bonus attack speed.

Upon taking fatal damage, Aatrox will activate his Blood Well, placing himself in a stasis for up to 3 seconds. Over the stasis' duration, the Blood Well is drained to heal Aatrox for an amount equal to its current content, plus 35% of its maximum content as health.

After 1 second, Aatrox can prematurely end the stasis by moving, which also ends the health regeneration.

Ability Details
Blood Well is both a self-targeted buff and a passive ability that triggers when Aatrox takes fatal damage.

Additional Information:

  • The maximum health Blood Well can restore is 141.75 / 186.3 / 230.85 / 279.45 / 329.4 / 382.05 / 436.05 / 492.75 / 550.8 / 611.55 / 675 / 739.8 / 807.3 / 876.15 / 947.7 / 1020.6 / 1097.55 / 1174.5
    • This is equivalent to 135% of the Blood Well's content, but the heal is composed of a base value of 35% of the maximum pool, plus 1% per 1% of its current content.
  • The health restoration is affected by Spirit Visage item.png Spirit Visage's passive.
  • The color of Blood Well.png Blood Well changes to white when the revive is on cooldown.
  • ZileanSquare.png Zilean's Chrono Shift.png Chrono Shift and the passive of Guardian Angel item.png Guardian Angel will take precedence over Blood Well.
  • Aatrox is cleansed of all debuffs when he enters stasis.
Dark Flight
RANGE: 650
COST: 10% current health
COOLDOWN: 16 / 15 / 14 / 13 / 12

Ability Details
Dark Flight is a ground-targeted dash that knocks up and damages in a circular area of effect.

Additional Information:

  • Dark Flight possesses a considerable overhead for a dash ability, able to traverse many walls that are otherwise much wider than the indicator suggests is possible to vault.
  • If Aatrox is afflicted with an airborne crowd control or forced into his Blood Well.png Blood Well stasis during the initial flight time, Dark Flight will fail and will not cause him to dash.
    • Other forms of crowd control applied while the animation is in progress will be suspended until the animation finishes.
  • Dark Flight does not cancel other commands. Aatrox will immediately begin attacking after he lands.
  • With smartcast on, Dark Flight will be cast immediately and at 650-range if the cursor is beyond that.
Blood Thirst
Blood Thirst

Toggle Off: Aatrox siphons the life of his enemies, restoring his own health on every third basic attack. When Aatrox is below 50% of his maximum health, the amount of health restored is tripled.

  • Heal: 20 / 25 / 30 / 35 / 40 (+25% bonus AD)
  • Enhanced Heal: 60 / 75 / 90 / 105 / 120 (+75% bonus AD)

  • Bonus Physical Damage: 60 / 95 / 130 / 165 / 200 (+100% bonus AD)
  • Health Cost On Third Attack: 15 / 23.75 / 32.5 / 41.25 / 50 (+25% bonus AD)
Ability Details
Blood Thirst/Blood Price is toggleable on-hit effect that triggers on every third basic attack.
  • Does not apply spell effects.
  • The triggering attack will apply other on-hit effects and can critically strike as normal.
  • Unlike most other on-hit physical damage, Blood Price's bonus damage does not apply life steal; this is a special case. The triggering attack will still apply life steal.
    • Blood Thirst/Blood Price will miss if Aatrox is blinded.
    • Critical strikes do not interact with the bonus damage of Blood Thirst/Blood Price.
    • If Blood Thirst/Price is Aegis Protection.png blocked or Riposte.png parried, the effect will still apply, but the base damage will not.
    • If Blood Thirst/Price is Counter Strike.png dodged the effect and base damage will apply as normal.
    • Attacks against structures will not increment the counter or consume the empowered attack.
  • Banshee's Veil item.png Spell shields will not block Blood Price.

Additional Information:

  • The attack counter between Blood Thirst and Blood Price is shared, meaning that toggling the ability with one empowered attack prepared will immediately allow use of the empowered attack of the other.
  • Toggling between Blood Thirst and Blood Price does not reset the attack timer. It will, however, cancel an empowered autoattack in its windup animation if it is toggled during that time.
  • Toggled abilities do not count as ability activation for the purposes of effects such as Spellblade or Force Pulse.png Force Pulse.
