General information

Darius Abilities

Description
Cooldowns

Hemorrhage

Darius_Icon_Hemorrhage
P

Darius makes his opponents bleed with each autoattack. Stacks up to 5 times and once enemies reach max stacks, Darius gains Noxian Might greatly increasing his damage.

Decimate

DariusCleave
Q

Winds up and swings his axe in a circle, striking enemies for more damage if they are hit by the blade. This also heals him based on the number of champions hit by the blade.

Crippling Strike

DariusNoxianTacticsONH
W

The next attack makes enemies bleed and slows their movement speed.

Apprehend

DariusAxeGrabCone
E

Passively increases armor penetration, and when activated pulls all enemies in a frontal cone to Darius.

Noxian Guillotine

DariusExecute
R

Darius strikes a killing blow which deals true damage. The damage is increased for every stack of Hemorrhage on the opponent. If this kills the target, it also refreshes the cooldown breifly.

Quick tips to play Darius

Make the most of your champions kit by auto-attacking before you activate your

DariusNoxianTacticsONHW

as your

DariusNoxianTacticsONHW

is an auto-attack reset.

Darius biggest weakness is that he can get kited easily. If you have to fight in a team fight, look to attack from the side to reduce the chances of being poked down or kited.

Try to go for longer trades over short ones as Darius benefits more from extended trades thanks to his Hemorrhage Passive.
