General information

Darius Abilities

Description
Cooldowns

Hemorrhage

Darius_Icon_Hemorrhage
P

Passive: Damaging basic attacks and abilities cause the target to bleed every 1.25 seconds for 5 seconds while dealing damage to the target over the duration. This can stack up to 5 times and the damage is increased against monsters. On applying full stacks to an enemy champion, or killing someone with his Ultimate, Darius gains Noxian Might for 5 seconds. Noxian Might: Darius gains bonus Attack damage and instantly applies full Hemorrhagee stacks through his usual means.

Decimate

DariusCleave
Q

Darius swings his axe around him in a circle and deals physical damage to nearby enemy units. This damage is reduced by 35% if an enemy is hit by the handle of the axe. Darius will also heal himself if he hits a large monster or a champion with the axe. No heal or Passive stacks will be acquired if the target is hit by the handle.

Crippling Strike

DariusNoxianTacticsONH
W

Darius' next auto-attack within 4 seconds becomes unstoppable and gains bonus range, physical damage, and slows the target by 90% for 1 second. If this ability kills its target, the mana cost and half its cooldown are refunded.

Apprehend

DariusAxeGrabCone
E

Passive: Darius gains armor penetration. Active: Darius pulls in all enemies in front of him, slowing them by 40% for 1 second, and gaining vision of the area around the pull.

Noxian Guillotine

DariusExecute
R

Darius attempts to execute the target enemy champion and deals true damage based on the number of Hemorrhage stacks. If the target dies within 0.15 seconds after being hit by his Ultimate, Darius causes all nearby minions and monsters to flee for 3 seconds. At rank 3, this ability has no mana cost and each kill with the ability will completely reset its cooldown.

Quick tips to play Darius

Make the most of your champions kit by auto-attacking before you activate your Crippling StrikeW as your Crippling StrikeW 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.
