Aatrox, the Darkin Blade, revealed

By Tyler 'RiotWenceslaus' Eltringham [1]

Aatrox reveal

Aatrox Aatrox, the Darkin Blade emerges from the shadows of history to Blood Well.png slake his thirst for blood and battle. This deft warrior Blood Price.png cuts down his foes and Blood Thirst.png drains their life force with his blade. Aatrox's abilities cost health to cast.

Blood Well
Blood Well

Aatrox stores a portion of his abilities' health cost in the Blood Well, which slowly drains to a base amount while he is out of combat. When Aatrox loses all of his health, he draws on the Blood Well and recovers the amount of health stored.

Aatrox Screenshots


Aatrox Aatrox is a basic attack dependent melee champion who excels as a duelist and team fighter. His built-in Blood Thirst.png sustain and Dark Flight.png escape mechanics make him an ideal fit for top lane.

Top-lane

The sustain from Blood Thirst.png Blood Thirst keeps Aatrox's health topped off, allowing him to farm throughout the laning phase. Aatrox excels as a duelist, able to switch to Blood Price.png Blood Price for heavy burst damage when trading with his lane opponent. After the exchange, Aatrox can toggle back to Blood Thirst.png Blood Thirst to top off his health. When he's ready to finish the job, Massacre.png Massacre adds significantly to an already potent burst combo.

If the lane isn't going Aatrox's way, the knock-up effect from Dark Flight.png Dark Flight can be used to set up ganks for his jungler. Or, if Aatrox has bullied his enemy out of lane, he can push aggressively, safe in the knowledge that the disengage from Dark Flight.png Dark Flight and Blades of Torment.png Blades of Torment's slow will aid his escape when enemies come charging. Even when things go totally wrong, Blood Well.png Blood Well offers a second chance to secure kills or make a quick exit.

Team fights

Aatrox's Dark Flight.png mobility gives him an innate ability to pressure enemy carries in team fights. Blood Thirst.png Blood Thirst grants Aatrox plenty of sustain as he tangos with enemy initiators and tanks. When he sees an opportunity to reach an enemy carry, Dark Flight.png Dark Flight closes the gap and allows the punishment to begin. When Aatrox is in deep, the area of effect burst and extra range from Massacre.png Massacre, and slow on Blades of Torment.png Blades of Torment prevent high-value targets from escaping. All the while the consistent healing from Blood Thirst.png Blood Thirst and resurrection effect from Blood Well.png Blood Well keep him alive long enough to cut through enemy squishies.

If Aatrox's team is on the defensive, a well-aimed Blades of Torment.png Blades of Torment can slow multiple enemies and open a window for retreating allies to slip away. Alternately, he can kite enemies with Dark Flight.png Dark Flight, and create an opportunity for the remainder of his team to turn and counter-initiate. If Aatrox is focused, Blood Thirst.png Blood Thirst's sustain and the Blood Well.png Blood Well keep him in the fight, giving his teammates an opportunity to cut through foes as he Blood Well.png resurrects and delivers the killing blow.
