Deathbringer Stance
STATIC COOLDOWN: 24 − 12 (based on level)
Deathbringer Stance.png

Innate: Aatrox periodically empowers his next basic attack to gain Range icon.png 50 bonus range and deal 5% − 12% (based on level) of the target's Health icon.png maximum health as Attack damage.png bonus physical damage (capped at 100 against monsters), and Fájl:Heal power.png heal him for 100% of the bonus physical damage dealt, reduced to 25% against Minion icon.png minions.

Deathbringer Stance's Cooldown reduction icon.png cooldown is reduced by 2 seconds whenever Aatrox hits at least one Champion icon.png champion or Monster icon.png large monster with a basic attack on-hit or an ability. The cooldown is further reduced by 2 seconds if he hits with the Sweetspot of The Darkin Blade The Darkin Blade.

  • The empowered attack does not affect Turret icon.png structures nor Ward icon.png wards.
  • Aatrox will assume stance when an enemy champion is in range of Infernal Chains Infernal Chains.
    • Pressing CTRL + 5 switches stances controllably.
  • The empowered attack is given on-attack. Commanding an attack before Deathbringer Stance is available, but hitting the target while it's available will not trigger the bonus damage.
  • Even if the ability hit is Spell Shield.png spell shielded Deathbringer Stance's cooldown will still be reduced.
  • This ability goes on cooldown on death and refreshes upon respawn.
  • The Sweetspot cooldown reduction only checks if an enemy is within the sweetspot, and, since the sweetspot area extends beyond the damage area, it is possible to trigger the cooldown reduction without damaging or knocking up an enemy.
  • PENDING FOR TEST: Interaction with parrying effects (Counter Strike.png dodge, Spirit's Refuge.png block, Blind icon.png blind).

The Darkin Blade
COOLDOWN: 14 / 12 / 10 / 8 / 6

Aatrox can activate The Darkin Blade three times before the ability goes on cooldown, with a 1 second static Cooldown reduction icon.png cooldown between casts. If Aatrox does not recast the ability within 4 seconds, the ability goes on cooldown.

Each of the three casts has Aatrox perform an acrobatic strike with his greatsword, dealing physical damage in a distinct area. Enemies hit within a telegraphed Sweetspot in the strike are dealt Critical strike icon.png 50% bonus damage and are Airborne icon.png knocked up for 0.25 seconds. The second and third cast deal 25% and 50% more damage than the first cast respectively.

The Darkin Blade.png

First Cast: Aatrox's first strike affects a 625 × 180-unit rectangular area in the target direction, with Aatrox centered on the back line and the Sweetspot at the farthest edge.

Physical Damage:
10 / 30 / 50 / 70 / 90 (+ 60 / 65 / 70 / 75 / 80% AD)
Sweetspot Damage:
15 / 45 / 75 / 105 / 135 (+ 90 / 97.5 / 105 / 112.5 / 120% AD)

Second Cast: Aatrox's second strike affects a trapezoidal area in the target direction, with the Sweetspot at the farthest edge. The hitbox begins 100-units behind Aatrox and extends 475-units in front of him, measuring between 300 and 500-units wide from behind to in front.

Physical Damage:
12.5 / 37.5 / 62.5 / 87.5 / 112.5 (+ 75 / 81.25 / 87.5 / 93.75 / 100% AD)
Sweetspot Damage:
18.75 / 56.25 / 93.75 / 131.25 / 168.75 (+ 112.5 / 121.875 / 131.25 / 140.625 / 150% AD)
The Darkin Blade 3.png

Third Cast: Aatrox's third strike affects a 300-radius circular area centered on a target location 200 units in front of him, with a 180-radius Sweetspot within.

Physical Damage:
15 / 45 / 75 / 105 / 135 (+ 90 / 97.5 / 105 / 112.5 / 120% AD)
Sweetspot Damage:
22.5 / 67.5 / 112.5 / 157.5 / 202.5 (+ 135 / 146.25 / 157.5 / 168.75 / 180% AD)

Each strike deals only 55% damage against Minion icon.png minions, and the Airborne icon.png knock up duration is doubled to 0.5 seconds against Monster icon.png monsters.

Maximum Non-Minion Damage:
56.25 / 168.75 / 281.25 / 393.75 / 506.25 (+ 337.5 / 365.625 / 393.75 / 421.875 / 450% AD)

  • The highlighted areas denote the sweetspot - enemies are affected where the two areas overlap (See Range model.png edge range and Range center.png center range).

    The first and second casts function like any point-blank AOE (i.e. an effect centered on the caster). An enemy is considered to be hit by the ability based on Range model.png edge range - i.e. any part of your gameplay radius is within the hitbox, you are affected.
  • The third cast, as well as the sweetspot of the first and second cast, function like ground-targeted abilities. An enemy is considered to be hit by the ability based on Range center.png center range - i.e. an enemy's center has to be within the hitbox to be affected.
  • As implied by the previous point, the sweetspot for the first and second cast is implemented as separate areas of effect to the main component of the ability. Enemies must be within both areas to trigger the bonus damage and knockup.
    • Deathbringer Stance's Deathbringer Stance's cooldown reduction only checks if an enemy is within the sweetspot - meaning it is possible to trigger the cooldown reduction without damaging or knocking up an enemy.
  • Each cast counts as an ability activation for the purposes of on-cast effects such as Spellblade, charging Spellbinder Spellbinder, and stacking Force Pulse Force Pulse.
  • The hitbox and Aatrox's model are fixed to the initial target direction.
    • Aatrox's facing-direction, for effects such as Petrifying Gaze Petrifying Gaze, is the direction he is moving, and not the direction the model is facing.
  • All damage modifiers Multiple stacking icon.png stack multiplicatively.
  • Damage dealt by the sweetspot of The Darkin Blade is a cosmetic critical strike.

    Infernal Chains
    WIDTH: 160
    SPEED: 1800
    CAST TIME: 0.25
    COOLDOWN: 26 / 23 / 20 / 17 / 14
    Infernal Chains.png

    Active: Aatrox smashes the ground in the target direction, creating a chain that stops on the first enemy hit, dealing physical damage, doubled against Minion icon.png minions, and Slow icon.png slowing them by 25% for 1.5 seconds.

    Physical Damage:
    30 / 40 / 50 / 60 / 70 (+ 40% AD)
    Minion Damage:
    60 / 80 / 100 / 120 / 140 (+ 80% AD)

    If Infernal Chains hits an enemy Champion icon.png champion or large Monster icon.png monster, they are True Sight icon.png revealed and are Focused Resolve.png chained to the impact area. If the chained enemy is still in the impact area after 1.5 seconds, they are Airborne icon.png dragged to the center and take the same damage again.

    Total Damage:
    60 / 80 / 100 / 120 / 140 (+ 80% AD)

    • The impact area is oriented relative to Aatrox's position when the projectile hits, not where the projectile originated from.
    • The location that the target is dragged to is not at the target's original location, but slightly closer towards Aatrox's position when the zone expires.
    • There's a small delay in checking if the target is in or outside the Infernal Chains area. Because of this it is still possible to drag the target if they leave the zone at the last instant.
    • Infernal Chains will fire from where Aatrox is at the end of the cast time.


    Umbral Dash
    TARGET RANGE: 75 / 300 / 500

    Active: Aatrox Dash.png dashes in the target direction.

    Umbral Dash Bladework.png resets Aatrox's basic attack timer.

    Umbral Dash can be cast during his other abilities without cancelling them, and vice versa.

    Umbral Dash may cast across terrain with with increased dash range. This may upscale his dash speed so that the dash takes the same total time as the standard maximum-range dash.

    • The Dash.png dash distance can be extended to up-to 500 units when targeting across terrain. It will only extend for the distance needed to cross the wall.
    • If Umbral Dash is cast in the same direction Aatrox is moving, he will be unable to buffer commands that require him to move. *
    • Aatrox's model darkens for 1.5 seconds upon casting Umbral Dash, which is a remnant from a buff he received before it got removed.
