Champion Matchups

Introduction

Hello, my name is Bael and this is my first guide. First, a bit about me. I mainly play top lane, and though I've only gotten to 1800 ELO, this Darius guide is a sure fire way to be beefy and in the front lines, and can really help your team win. What better way to protect your ADC then not needed them around? just dunk on everything in range! I thought, who better for my first guide than Darius, my favorite champion in all of league AND probably the most overpowered one too...

Going to keep it short and sweet with the guide, if i get some good feed back i will definitely make more on my favorite top lane champions! thanks guys.

Masteries

Which are better?
21/9/0...
OR
9/21/0...

well, in my honest opinion, if it's blind (which i don't play) pick, than i'd say 9/21/0 just to be safe. who knows...you could get a teemo top and be useless all game. might aswell get bonus beef to TRY and get some farm.

IF you are like me and play ranked, only go 21/9/0 if you have an easy enemy lane you KNOW you can do really well with early, like wukong, irelia, ect. (yes irelia...darius destroys irelia...)

Runes

Simple. Damage and beef, what else do you need?

Reds: Damage? yup. MORE DAMAGE

Yellows: Armor...JUST armor...

Blues: MR flat, i don't like MR per lvl myself.

Quints: these are the only one's you can change, either go damage, arm. pen, or more armor. i like the damage to get fed early.

Summoner Spells



Explanation:

Ghost CAN work, but honestly flash is way to OP to give up.

Ignite means more kill power and can stop people like mundo, volibear and vlad from being a pain in the ass.

Item Builds

i go flask and 5/4 health pot, 1 mana bot, 1 ward because sustain is the king in this game. boots 3 is our, armor 5 can work but honestly flask is just really OP for its price right now, it turns anyone that WOULD have a shit lane, into having no problem. think of it as saving 225 gold every time you return to base...it's a godly starting item that lets you farm so you CAN get into late game. the goal is to farm, make smart trades, keep an eye on your river and make sure the enemy jungler isn't coming to gank you, and when the enemy goes to back from the trades, you shove the lane, letting the creeps die to tower, essentially denying them of gold and experience, you go back, buy and repeat. but the more and more gold you have and the less and less they have, the more you can secure kills, make them go back, and even roam...which means...you snowball.

Final Comments

this IS my first guide, but on my favorite and main champion, let me know what you guys think! thanks a ton, lots of love and good health!
