Abilities

Edit

Deathbringer Stance

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 Health icon.png target's maximum health as bonus physical damage, capped at 100 against Monster icon.png monsters.
Aatrox Heal power icon.png heals for 100% of the post-mitigation damage dealt, reduced to 25% against Minion icon.png minions.

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

Info
  • The empowered attack does not trigger on Turret icon.png structures, Ward icon.png wards, nor jungle plants.
  • Aatrox will assume stance when an enemy champion is in range of Infernal Chains Infernal Chains.
    • Pressing CTRL + 5 switches stances controllably.
  • If Deathbringer Stance becomes available during a standard attack's windup, it will not be consumed or 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.

Edit

The Darkin Blade

Active: Aatrox can activate The Darkin Blade three times before the ability goes on cooldown, with a 1 second static cooldown between casts. If Aatrox does not recast the ability within 4 seconds of the previous cast, it 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 physical icon.png 50% bonus damage and are Airborne icon.png knocked up for 0.25 seconds. The second cast deals 25% increased damage and the third cast deals 50% increased damage.

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)
The Darkin Blade 2.png

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)

Info
  • 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. if any part of your Gameplay radius.png gameplay radius is within the hitbox, you are affected.
  • The third cast, as well as the Sweetspot for 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, Airborne icon.png knock up and Deathbringer Stance's Deathbringer Stance's cooldown reduction.
    • The 'target gets hit' SFX plays whenever an enemy is within the Sweetspot - meaning it is possible to trigger the sound effect without affecting an enemy.
  • Each cast counts as an ability activation for the purposes of on-cast effects such as Sheen item.png Spellblade 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.

    Infernal Chains

    Infernal Chains.png

    Active: Aatrox sends a chain in the target direction that deals physical damage to the first enemy hit, 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 tethered to the impact area. If the tethered enemy is still in the 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)

    Info
    • 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.
    • Spell Shield.png Spell shield will block the chain's application and initial damage but not the aftereffects of one already applied.
    • Infernal Chains will fire from where Aatrox is at the end of the cast time.

    Edit

    Umbral Dash

    Passive: Aatrox Heal power icon.png heals for a percentage of the non-Blaze.png persistent post-mitigation damage he deals against enemy champions, increased during World Ender World Ender.

    Healing:
    20 / 22.5 / 25 / 27.5 / 30%
    World Ender World Ender Increased Healing:
    26 / 32 / 38 / 44 / 50%
    Umbral Dash.png

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

    Umbral Dash Bladework.png resets Aatrox's basic attack timer, can be cast during his other abilities without cancelling them and vice versa, and may be cast across terrain with an increased dash range.

    Info
    • 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.
      • This may upscale his dash speed so that the dash takes the same total time as the standard maximum-range dash.
    • If Umbral Dash is cast in the same direction Aatrox is moving, he will be unable to buffer commands that require him to move. (note)
    • 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.

    World Ender

    World Ender.png

    Active: Aatrox unleashes his true demonic form, causing all nearby enemy Minion icon.png minions and Monster icon.png monsters to Flee icon.png flee from him for 3 seconds, during which they are rapidly Slow icon.png slowed by up to 99% over the duration. For the next 10 seconds, Aatrox gains Ghost.png ghosting and Movement speed icon.png bonus movement speed, decaying by 10% of the current bonus every 0.25 seconds.

    Bonus Movement Speed:
    60 / 80 / 100%

    While transformed, Aatrox gains Attack damage icon.png bonus attack damage and 5% increased size, and receives increased Heal power icon.png self-healing from all sources.

    Bonus AD:
    20 / 30 / 40% AD
    Increased Healing:
    30 / 45 / 60%

    Scoring a Damage rating.png takedown against an enemy champion extends World Ender's duration by 5 seconds, refreshing its effects, up to the original amount.

     
       "I am Aatrox, I am the World Ender!"

    Info
    • His resource bar indicates the remaining duration of World Ender.
    • World Ender persists through Revival icon.png resurrection effects.
    • World Ender will cast from wherever Aatrox is at the end of the cast time.

    RP 975
    Original
    12.06.2013
    Once honored defenders of Shurima against the Void, Aatrox and his brethren would eventually become an even greater threat to Runeterra, and were defeated only by cunning mortal sorcery. But after centuries of imprisonment, Aatrox was the first to find freedom once more, corrupting and transforming those foolish enough to try and wield the magical weapon that contained his essence. Now, with stolen flesh, he walks Runeterra in a brutal approximation of his previous form, seeking an apocalyptic and long overdue vengeance.
