Darius Matchups Overview

Darius General information

Darius tips and tricks

Make the most of your champions kit by auto-attacking before you activate your Crippling StrikeW as your Crippling StrikeW is an auto-attack reset.

Darius biggest weakness is that he can get kited easily. If you have to fight in a team fight, look to attack from the side to reduce the chances of being poked down or kited.

Try to go for longer trades over short ones as Darius benefits more from extended trades thanks to his Hemorrhage Passive.
