Champion Sneak Peek - Darius, the Hand of Noxus

By NeeksNaman [1]

If you've ever been frustrated by your progress in a given position, you might want to look to Darius Darius, the Hand of Noxus, for inspiration. In order to secure his own advancement, this determined champion has repeatedly employed the foolproof method of lopping his boss' head off. So whether you believe that the road to power is paved with the headless bodies of your enemies, or you simply think that a good beheading is a rather expedient method of dealing with red tape, we think you'll agree that Darius makes a fine addition to the League of Legends.

  • Riot Games does not endorse participation in any beheadings, decapitations or other incidences of fatal mayhem. In the event that you should experience sudden bouts of Machiavellian violence or rapid and very explicable career advancement, please consult your doctor or therapist. By purchasing Darius you absolve Riot Games of responsibility for any maniacal rampages that may ensue.

Darius, the Hand of Noxus, Revealed

By NeeksNaman [2]

If you're fond of cutting a swath through your enemies on the way to scoring that epic killing blow, look no further than Darius Darius, the Hand of Noxus. This focused and deadly warrior specializes in focused attacks and attrition damage, closing out his assault with heavy damage nukes. At the heart of Darius' kit is his passive ability: Hemorrhage.png Hemorrhage. Darius' basic attacks and damaging abilities all cause the target to bleed for additional damage over time. This effect can stack up to five times, also giving Darius some bonus Movement Speed for each enemy champion currently afflicted and granting his other abilities additional effects.

In team fights, Darius can start off by using Decimate.png Decimate to quickly apply his bleed on a number of enemies. These Hemorrhage.png Hemorrhage debuffs will not only give him a hefty Movement Speed bonus, but also interact with his other abilities for added effect. To pursue a fleeing enemy, the added speed from his passive combines with Crippling Strike.png Crippling Strike, an attack that slows the opponent and refunds part of the cooldown for each stack of Hemorrhage.png Hemorrhage currently affecting the target. Even in the event an adversary should start to slip away, Darius can use Apprehend.png Apprehend to pull them back within reach.

Finally, to close out this relentless assault in an appropriately brutal manner, Darius can employ his ultimate ability Noxian Guillotine.png Noxian Guillotine. Leaping forward, Darius strikes a lethal blow that deals True Damage plus a hefty bonus for each stack of Hemorrhage.png Hemorrhage currently applied. Additionally, if Darius scores a killing blow in the process, the cooldown on Noxian Guillotine.png Noxian Guillotine is immediately refunded. This allows him to redouble and continue his bloody work on an additional opponent (or opponents, as the case may be). Watching this vicious champion dart through the fray, decapitating foe after foe in rapid succession can be a truly terrifying and epic sight!

Gameplay update: juggernauts

By Colt 'Ezreal' Hallam [3]

We've always thought of Darius Darius as one of League's strongest cleanup fighters, the pentakill machine who'd outlast his enemies' attacks before Apprehend.png apprehending his wounded enemies and Noxian Guillotine.png getting his chop on. The problem was, while that fantasy is great, Darius almost never got to do any of it. Either you'd build damage on him and die before it was cleanup time, or build tanky and lack the damage to properly Noxian Guillotine.png get your dunk on.

With this update, we're tweaking Hemorrhage old Hemorrhage and giving the big guy's passive a new tool: Hemorrhage.png Noxian Might.


  • Hemorrhage: Darius cuts enemies he attacks, causing them to bleed. Hemorrhage.png Hemorrhage can stack up to five times.
  • [New] Noxian Might: Whenever Darius executes an enemy with Noxian Guillotine.png Noxian Guillotine or fully stacks Hemorrhage.png Hemorrhage on a target, he gains Noxian Might for a few seconds. While under the effects of Noxian Might, Darius deals greatly increased physical damage and applies max Hemorrhage.png Hemorrhage stacks to all enemies he hits.

The idea here is to give Darius the means to be Darius. The damage amp upon fully stacking Hemorrhage.png Noxian Might is huge, but he still has to work to get it. Opponents will have to be much more cautious about letting the Hand of Noxus get his Hemorrhage.png passive stacks going - preventing him from gaining stacks means he won't go into Hemorrhage.png Noxian Might which, in turn, means he'll have a much harder time Noxian Guillotine.png chaining his executions together. But when he does... well... there will be pentakills.
