"Some fight for honor, some fight for glory. It matters only that you fight." - Aatrox OriginalSquare old Aatrox
Aatrox Render old
Aatrox Winged Render old

One of the ancient Darkin profileicon darkin, Aatrox was once a peerless swordmaster who reveled in the bloody chaos of the battlefield. Trapped within his own blade by the magic of his foes, he waited out the millennia for a suitable host to wield him - this mortal warrior was corrupted and transformed by the living weapon, and Aatrox was reborn. Though tales of the darkin have now passed into legend, he remembers only too well the destruction of his race, and wreaks his vengeance one sword blow at a time.

Aatrox is a legendary warrior, one of only five that remain of an ancient race known as the Darkin. He wields his massive Blood Price blade with grace and poise, slicing through legions in a style that is hypnotic to behold. With each foe felled, Aatrox's seemingly living Blood Thirst blade drinks in their blood, Blood Well empowering him and fueling his brutal, elegant campaign of slaughter.


The earliest tale of Aatrox is as old as recorded history. It tells of a war between two great factions remembered only as the Blue Team Stag profileicon Protectorate and the Red Team Owl profileicon Magelords. Over time, the Magelords won a series of crushing victories, leaving them on the brink of obliterating their sworn enemy forever. On the day of their final confrontation, the Protectorate army found themselves outnumbered, exhausted, and poorly equipped. They braced for inevitable defeat.

Just when all hope seemed lost, Aatrox appeared among the ranks of the Protectorate. With but a few words, he urged the soldiers to fight to the last before throwing himself into battle. His presence inspired the desperate warriors. At first, they could only watch in awe as this unknown hero cleaved through their enemies, his body and blade moving in unison as if one being. Soon, the warriors found themselves imbued with a potent thirst for battle. They followed Aatrox into the fray, each fighting with the furious strength of ten until they had won a most unlikely victory.

Aatrox vanished after that battle, but the Protectorate army's newfound fury did not. Their surprising triumph led to many more until they were able to finally return home victorious. Their countrymen hailed them as heroes, but though they had saved their entire civilization from destruction, darkness lingered in the mind of each warrior. Something within them had changed. Over time, their memories of battle faded, only to be replaced with a grim revelation: their acts of heroism were, in fact, brutal atrocities committed by their own hands.

Tales like these appear among the myths of many cultures. If they are all to be believed, Aatrox's presence has changed the course of some of the most important wars in history. Though these stories remember him as a savior in dark times, Aatrox's true legacy may be a world filled with conflict and strife.

Blood Well
STATIC COOLDOWN: 180 / 160 / 140 / 120 (based on level)
Blood Well

Aatrox fills his Blood Well through his abilities, depleting by (20% maximum) per second while out of combat. When the Blood Well is filled, Aatrox becomes Hellbent for 4 seconds as the Blood Well drains. While Hellbent, dealing or taking damage against enemy champions or neutral monsters will completely fill the Blood Well and refresh Hellbent's duration.

Hellbent: Aatrox gains Attack damage icon 25% increased base AD and 30 / 40 / 50 / 60% (based on level) Attack speed icon bonus attack speed. Upon taking fatal damage Aatrox will revive over 3 seconds, recovering Health icon 30% of maximum health over the duration. Upon reviving, Aatrox instantly recovers 100% of Blood Well. Aatrox's revive is then put on a cooldown.

Info
Notes
  • Aatrox's resource bar colors red when Hellbent is active (light red when the revive is off cooldown, dark red when on cooldown)
  • Chronoshift Chronoshift and Guardian Angel item Guardian Angel's passive will take precedence over Blood Well's revive.
  • Blood Well's Stasis icon stasis causes Aatrox to become Playful untargetable, which will reset turret aggro.
  • Tethers from abilities (Soul Shackles Soul Shackles) will remain active while Aatrox is reviving.
  • Blood Well's healing component interacts with Spirit Visage item Spirit Visage's passive.

Dark Flight
TARGET RANGE: 650
EFFECT RADIUS: 225
INNER RADIUS: 75
COOLDOWN: 13 / 12.5 / 12 / 11.5 / 11
Dark Flight

Active: After a brief delay, Aatrox Dash dashes to the target area Unstoppable icon unstoppably, filling 20% of his Blood Well Blood Well, dealing Attack damage physical damage to nearby units upon landing, and Airborne icon knocking up all units in the epicenter for 1 second.

Physical Damage:
20 / 50 / 80 / 110 / 140 (+ 110% AD)

Info
Notes
  • Dark Flight possesses a considerable overhead for a dash ability, able to traverse many walls that are otherwise much wider than the indicator suggests is possible to vault.
  • If Aatrox is sent Airborne icon airborne or forced into Blood Well Blood Well's Stasis icon stasis during the initial flight time, Dark Flight will fail and will not cause him to dash.
    • Other forms of crowd control applied while the animation is in progress will be suspended until the animation finishes.
  • Dark Flight does not cancel other commands. Aatrox will immediately begin attacking after he lands.
  • With smartcast on, Dark Flight will be cast immediately and at 650-range if the cursor is beyond that.
  • Flash Flash cannot be cast during Dark Flight.
  • Dark Flight has a 0.6 second cast time. 0.3 second wind-up, and 0.3 second wind-down.

Blood Thirst / Blood Price
STATIC COOLDOWN: 0.5

Passive: Aatrox applies a bonus on-hit effect on every third hit against non-structures.

Blood Thirst

Toggle Off – Blood Thirst 2 Blood Thirst: Aatrox Heal power heals himself on-hit.

Heal:
30 / 45 / 60 / 75 / 90 (+ 6.5% missing health)
Blood Price

Toggle On – Blood Price 2 Blood Price: Aatrox deals bonus on-hit physical damage and fills 20% of his Blood Well Blood Well.

Physical Damage:
50 / 85 / 120 / 155 / 190 (+ 75% bonus AD)

Info
Notes
  • The attack counter between Blood Thirst and Blood Price is shared, meaning that toggling the ability with one empowered attack prepared will immediately allow use of the empowered attack of the other.
  • Toggling between Blood Thirst and Blood Price does not reset the basic attack timer. It will, however, cancel an empowered basic attack in its windup animation if it is toggled during that time.
  • Toggled abilities do not count as ability activation for the purposes of effects such as Spellblade or Force Pulse Force Pulse.
  • Aatrox's basic attack animation correlates with the amount of stacks for Blood Thirst/Price. The first basic attack animation (after leveling up Blood Thirst/Price or proccing an empowered basic attack) is Aatrox swinging his sword to the left, the second is to the right and the third basic attack animation (which will be affected by Blood Thirst/Price) is Aatrox stabbing the target.
  • Blood Thirst/Price will not proc against turrets or wards.
  • The triggering attack will apply other on-hit effects and can Critical strike icon critically strike as normal.
    • Unlike most other on-hit physical damage, Blood Price's bonus damage does not apply life steal; this is a special case. The triggering attack will still apply life steal.
    • However, using Death's Dance item Death's Dance would then heal Aatrox for 15% of the Blood Price's bonus damage.
    • Blood Thirst/Price will miss if Aatrox is Blind icon blinded.
    • Critical strike icon Critical strikes do not interact with the bonus damage of Blood Thirst/Blood Price.
    • If Blood Thirst/Price is Aegis Protection blocked or Riposte parried, the effect will still apply, but the base damage will not.
    • If Blood Thirst/Price is Counter Strike dodged, the effect and base damage will apply as normal.

COST: 30 health
COOLDOWN: 12 / 11 / 10 / 9 / 8
Blades of Torment

Active: Aatrox unleashes two converging energy waves in the target direction, filling 20% of his Blood Well Blood Well, dealing physical damage to all units hit and Slow icon slowing for 2 seconds.

Physical Damage:
80 / 120 / 160 / 200 / 240 (+ 70% bonus AD)
Slow:
30 / 35 / 40 / 45 / 50%

Info
Notes
  • Units may only be damaged by one projectile of Blades of Torment per cast.
  • The ability fires two narrow skillshots, converging at a fixed range. Very small units (such as minions) can potentially avoid the damage and slow altogether if the blades are fired from a close enough range.
  • Flash Flash can be cast during the cast animation of Blades of Torment. If done so, the ability resolves after Flash Flash from the location Aatrox flashes to.
  • Has a width of 150 decreasing as it converges on its max range.
