Aatrox Matchups Overview
Aatrox General information
Try and play around with your Passive and trade when it’s up. Don’t look for an extended fight unless your Passive is up; otherwise, you’ll miss out on extra damage.
You can use your E to reposition your Q sweet spots. This includes using your E forwards, backwards and even left or right.
Play safe at level 1, and then look to play aggressive from levels 2 to 6. Aatrox is an early game dominant champion, so make sure you play aggressive early on.
Every combo you need to master the champion!
