Laning Against Aatrox

Laning Against Aatrox

Use the minion wave to block Aatrox from landing his Infernal ChainsW and going for the all-in. Always ensure that there is at least one minion between you and him at all times.

Both his The Darkin BladeQ and Umbral DashE have rather long cooldowns in the early game. If he uses them, try to abuse the cooldowns and trade with him while they’re down.

Aatrox benefits from bursty trades with his The Darkin BladeQ. Try and keep your distance at all times and be prepared to sacrifice a little bit of CS, so he doesn’t burst you down.

Strategy VS Aatrox

Strategy VS Aatrox

In team fights, as soon as Aatrox runs in, try to CC him and burst him down first. He is pretty vulnerable to CC, and if you can kill him before he gets his combo off, the enemy will lose out on a lot of damage.

Try to look for fights when Aatrox doesn’t have his Ultimate World EnderR or Flash. He will have a much harder time at impacting fights when either of these are on cooldown.

Aatrox likes to split push after the laning phase has ended. When he shows in a side lane alone, you could start a team fight with his teammates. Have wards on that side of the map, though, if he makes his way to join the battle.

Aatrox Power Spikes

Aatrox Power Spikes

Aatrox is strong from levels 2-6. Make sure you keep your distance to make it harder for him to land his The Darkin BladeQ and poke you down.

Aatrox spikes when he gets his first item (as well as both component items). Respect his all in potential when he’s completed the recipe as his damage output will heavily increase.

Aatrox is strong no matter what if you cannot dodge all instances of his The Darkin BladeQ. Practice makes perfect, but do try and dodge them whenever you’re able to.
