Aatrox Matchups Overview

Aatrox General information

Aatrox tips and tricks

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 Umbral DashE to reposition your The Darkin BladeQ 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.
