Darius is a fighting champion, very powerful in one-on-one fights, since the beginning of the game. His passive makes him very powerful in the laning phase. His kit allows him to deal a lot of damage in fights, and also be very powerful in side lanes. Typically, this champion is used in the top lane.
“There is no greater symbol of the power of Noxus than Darius, the nation's most feared and experienced commander. Coming from humble beginnings to become the Hand of Noxus, he cuts his way through the empire's enemies; many of whom are even Noxians. Knowing that he never doubts the integrity of his cause and that he never hesitates as soon as his ax is raised, those who defy the commander of the Tripharian Legion hope for no mercy.”
(Passive) Bleeding: Darius' damaging attacks and abilities cause enemies to bleed, dealing Physical Damage over 5s, stacking up to 5 times.
(Q) Tithe: Darius picks up momentum and swings his ax in a circular motion. Enemies hit by the blade take more damage than those hit by the hilt. Darius heals himself based on enemy champions and large monsters hit by the blade.
(W) Mutilating Attack: Darius' next attack hits a major enemy artery. As he bleeds, his Movement Speed is reduced.
(E) Learn: Darius sharpens his axe, causing his Physical Damage to passively ignore a percentage of the target's Armor. When activated, Darius attacks his enemies with his ax hook and pulls them towards him.
(R) Guillotine of Noxus: Darius leaps towards an enemy champion and hits them with a lethal blow, dealing true damage. This damage increases with each stack of Hemorrhage on the target. If Guillotine of Noxus deals the final blow, its cooldown is briefly reset.

Darius' Tips and Tricks
- The (Q) Decimate skill restores health to Darius according to the number of enemies hit by the blade alone.
- The (W) Mutilating Attack skill resets your basic attack.
- The (E) Apprehend skill can lure enemies through walls if they are within range.
- After 5 stacking effects of (Passive) Hemorrhage, your ultimate (R) Noxian Guillotine deals its maximum damage.
- If the (R) Noxian Guillotine skill does not kill the opponent, but the opponent dies within a very short window, the recovery time will still update.
- When killing an enemy with (R) Noxian Guillotine, this ability restores all of its cooldown, in addition to already dealing maximum damage, as it will not need to stake its passive again.
