DARIUS' WAYS OF DESTRUCTION (SKILLS)This is a really good skill just because it does a lot of damage and it stacks blood on them! It is also very good for CS!
Slows so use it after you pull them in with it also stacks blood so it is very very useful
Only use this when they are getting away never engage with it!!! Save this til the last second for the best outcome and a kill.
A.K.A THE DUNK!!! This is the best move by far for Darius considering it refreshes after you get a kill with this. Use this to BAN people and make sure you have enough blood stacks on them before using this because if you use it and they don't die then it's a waste.
Darius' ultimate COMBO:
2. Basic Attack
4. Basic Attack
6. Basic Attack
7. DUNK THE SHIT OUT OF THEM!!!
IntroductionWhy did the chicken cross the road? To get DUNKED on and SHAT on by Darius. Darius is an exceptionally
strong top. In my opinion he is easily one of the best and overpowered champions in the game. Not only do
you do a lot of damage you can tank for days! I started to play this champion just because i got beat top
Lane by him and he is simply amazing. All of his moves are good, the blood stack is overpowered, he is
extremely tanky, and lastly he BANS people. His dunk is one of the funnest and most useful ultimates in
the game. It refreshes after you get a kill with it so your 1v2 and team fight potential is very very
high! Keep in mind that your goal as Darius is to DUNK people and make them uninstall the game.
Make sure you use and !
Darius has no way getting out of sticky situations so take flash!
Ignite is just a good spell on him because ignite and blood stacks do tons and tons of damage *in Phreaks
Item BuildsIs one of the best items for Darius because it gives you health, some
AD, and the oppurtunity to DUNK people (the slow it gives). Going top you should just build a full tank
and get an for damage. For more detail just look at the actual Item
Early GameFOCUS ON CS!!! Darius snowballs like a crazy mothafucka if you have good CS! Dont be afraid to use
and to get CS also. Those moves are very
very useful when getting CS and your Q costs very low mana. Also don't push your lane too hard because
everyone will babysit your lane since your Darius. Adjust to their style (AD or AP) in the item build at
the top. Harass with your Q because it deals incredible amount of damage.
Mid GameMid game should be around 17-20 mins so your CS should be around 175 depending on how much you harass or
how many times you have been ganked. By this time you should be at the snowballing stage so engage and
force team fights! And continue to farm if possible.
Late GameUnless your team is awful or just plain feeders who don't know how to play the damn game you should be
fine and win. There really isn't a late game for Darius because if he's played right he can carry the team
to victory by 30-35 minutes. If you consider that late game than your build should be done and your CS
should easily be over 200. You're tanky as hell at this point so just charge in and DUNK everyone!!!
Team FightsBecause this build is so tanky you should initiate first unless you have a straight tank on your team.
Make sure you target the right people! Darius does a lot of damage so use it towards someone useful on
their team like their bruiser or AD Carry. If somehow you get out of position just deal damage to the
closest person near you. Also save your til they ATTEMPT to get
away because if you use it to engage than they might get away. Same with .
High Quality TipsDon't attack the minions unless its for last hit. When you are going against a counter, get 5 bloods
going at once (different minions) so it makes you move faster. This will help you avoid and get farm
against your counter for example Olaf.You have a higher rate to dodge his Q (where he throws the axe)
and you can get around the minions forlast hits. If you are incredibly bad at that then instead of using
the Greater Quint of Armor Pen,use Greater Quint of Movement Speed (this is pretty much for noobs who
push their lane when they aren't supposed to and suck at dodging skillshots).
Some people say Darius is mana hungry. Only use your moves when you are supposed to (last hits &
Harassment). This means dont "spin to win" and spam everything you have, like some people do.
If you are really good as Darius and feel like you know the fundamentals try farming behind their first
tower. This will not always work. You have to be very observant where their jungler, is where your
jungler is, and how fast you can get out of there. Singed can do this very well because of his ult and
ghost but darius can too! First, Walk around the minions (gather them up into a ball). Second, Use your
Q to hit every single one and use W and basic attacks to do the rest! It is really easy once you get the
hang of it, but you always have to keep and eye on that minimap at the bottom. That will be the key to
this trick. If you are wondering why this is good, it's good because sometimes in lane you dont always
get every single minion kill. This way, you can get all of them. I suggest doing this at level 4 or
above when you have all of your skills (Q, W, E). As I said, minions are the key to snowballing along
with early game kills so use this if you can.

Final CommentsLike i said Darius is an exceptionally good top and champ. No matter how bad your score is in the
beginning you can always come back as Darius the DUNK KING. Make sure your CS is good (use q and w are
good moves to last shot creeps). I will probably update this guide every week or so for the time being.
Good luck and Have Fun. Remember your goal is to ban/DUNK champions.
