Tips

Playing As Darius Darius
  • Decimate.png Decimate is a powerful harassment ability. Strike an enemy from maximum range for the greatest effect.
  • Noxian Guillotine.png Noxian Guillotine does more damage the more Hemorrhage.png attacks you can land prior to it. Use Hemorrhage.png Noxian Might for maximum damage.
  • Darius benefits greatly from enhanced survivability. The longer you can prolong a fight, the more Hemorrhage.png powerful he becomes.
Playing Against Darius Darius
  • When Darius' Apprehend.png axe grab is on cooldown, he is vulnerable to harassment attacks.
  • Darius' ability to escape from fights is Crippling Strike.png limited. If you have an advantage against him, press your lead.

Tricks

Ability Usage
Mastery Usage
  • The Fervor of Battle path is better than the Grasp of the Undying path because Fervor of Battle now gives ad and Grasp of the Undying is too underperforming at the moment.
  • For the first row you should take Sorcery mastery s4.png Sorcery because Darius relies more on his abilities rather than his auto attacks.
  • For the second row you should take Vampirism mastery s2.png Feast because it helps you with laning phase. Expose Weakness mastery 2016.png Expose Weakness could also be a viable option but it's near to useless for laning phase. Lethality mastery s3.png Fresh Blood could work but Darius is more of an all-in champion rather than a poking champion.
  • For the third row you should take Vampirism mastery s3.png Vampirism because it helps you by healing you when you deal damage and Darius doesn't have any ability power scalings so you can't utulize the full effect that Arcane Mastery mastery s4.png Natural Talent gives.
  • For the fourth row you should take Spatial Accuracy mastery s1.png Battle Trance because it helps Darius in extended fights and that is where he belongs due to his passive Hemorrhage.png Hemorrhage. Double-Edged Sword mastery S4.png Double Edged Sword causes you to take too much extra damage compared to the extra damage you will deal and Bounty Hunter mastery 2016.png Bounty Hunter could be a viable option as it becomes better than the full effect from Spatial Accuracy mastery s1.png Battle Trance once you get atleast 4 kills.
  • For the fifth row you should take Devastating Strikes mastery s4.png Battering Blows because Darius only deals physical damage with his abilities.
  • For the sixth row you should take Fervor of Battle mastery 2016.png Fervor of Battle because it increases your ad, thus helping Darius alot because 3 of his (4 if you count his passive) have ad scalings. Darius doesn't attack much so Warlord&#039;s Bloodlust mastery 2016.png Warlord's Bloodlust isn't good enough on him compared to Fervor of Battle mastery 2016.png Fervor of Battle. Same goes for Deathfire Touch mastery 2016.png Deathfire Touch as Darius doesn't build enough ad to benefit from it more than Fervor of Battle mastery 2016.png Fervor of Battle.


  • The rest of the 12 mastery points you now have will be spent in the Resolve tree, the reason for this is that it benefits Darius more than spending the points in the Cunning tree.
  • For the first row you should take Recovery mastery s4.png Recovery because the extra health helps Darius with the laning phase and Unyielding mastery s4.png Unyielding doesn't provide enough armor/magic resistance to be useful (5 extra armor per 100 armor/5 extra magic resistance per 100 magic resistance).
  • For the second row you should take Wanderer mastery s4.png Explorer because it helps with roaming and chasing if you're constantly running through brushes. Block mastery s4.png Tough Skin doesn't provide enough damage reduction to be useful. Siege Commander mastery s2.png Siegemaster provides an extremely small amount of armor and magic resistance to be useful, on top of the requirement to get those benefits
  • For the third row you should take Adaptive Armor mastery s4.png Runic Armor because it synergies with Darius' Decimate.png Decimate. Veteran&#039;s Scars mastery s4.png Veteran's Scars provides too small amounts of health to be useful compared to Adaptive Armor mastery s4.png Runic Armor.
  • for the fourth row you should take Summoner&#039;s Insight mastery s4.png Insight because it is possibly the best mastery to use in that row. Tough Skin mastery s4.png Fearless could also be used if you want to be a little more tankier at the start of a teamfight or a battle at top. Perseverance mastery s4.png Perseverance simply doesn't provide enough power to be useful over Adaptive Armor mastery s4.png Runic Armor or Tough Skin mastery s4.png Fearless.



Item Usage
Countering
  • Decimate.png Decimate deals reduced damage and does not apply Hemorrhage.png stacks of Hemorrhage if you are hit by the shaft. If you are cornered by him without any form of extra mobility to help you out, get very close to him in order to avoid his blade!
