Statistics[]

Abilities[]

Edit

Deathbringer Stance

Deathbringer Stance

Innate: Periodically, Aatrox empowers his next basic attack to gain Range icon 50 bonus range and deal bonus magic damage equal to 4% − 12% (based on level) of the target's maximum health, capped at 100 against Monster icon monsters.
Aatrox Heal power icon heals for 80% of the post-mitigation bonus damage dealt, reduced to 25% against Minion icon minions.

Whenever Aatrox hits at least one enemy Champion icon champion or large Monster icon monster with a basic attack On-hit icon on-hit or an ability, the Cooldown icon cooldown of Deathbringer Stance is reduced by 2 seconds, modified to 4 if he hits with the Sweetspot of The Darkin Blade The Darkin Blade.

Info
  • Aatrox will assume stance when an enemy champion is in range of Infernal Chains Infernal Chains.
    • The toggle expression (default CTRL + 5) switches between stances manually.
  • 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 spell shielded Deathbringer Stance's cooldown will still be reduced.
  • This ability goes on cooldown on death and refreshes upon respawn.
  • The empowered attack will not trigger against structures and wards.

Edit

The Darkin Blade

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.

Active: Aatrox performs a strike with his greatsword for each of the three casts, dealing physical damage to enemies hit within an area. Enemies hit within a Sweetspot of the area take Successfully enhanced damage physical icon 60% bonus damage and also Airborne icon knocked up for 0.25 seconds. Each subsequent cast increases The Darkin Blade's damage by 25%.

The Darkin Blade

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

First Cast Damage:
10 / 25 / 40 / 55 / 70 (+ 60 / 67.5 / 75 / 82.5 / 90% AD)
First Sweetspot Damage:
16 / 40 / 64 / 88 / 112 (+ 96 / 108 / 120 / 132 / 144% AD)
The Darkin Blade 2

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.

Second Cast Damage:
12.5 / 31.25 / 50 / 68.75 / 87.5 (+ 75 / 84.375 / 93.75 / 103.125 / 112.5% AD)
Second Sweetspot Damage:
20 / 50 / 80 / 110 / 140 (+ 120 / 135 / 150 / 165 / 180% AD)
The Darkin Blade 3

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

Third Cast Damage:
15 / 37.5 / 60 / 82.5 / 105 (+ 90 / 101.25 / 112.5 / 123.75 / 135% AD)
Third Sweetspot Damage:
24 / 60 / 96 / 132 / 168 (+ 144 / 162 / 180 / 198 / 216% AD)

The Darkin Blade deals 55 / 60 / 65 / 70% (based on level) damage against Minion icon minions, and the Airborne icon knock up duration from hitting the Sweetspot is doubled to 0.5 seconds against Monster icon monsters.

Maximum Non-Minion Damage:
60 / 150 / 240 / 330 / 420 (+ 360 / 405 / 450 / 495 / 540% AD)

Info
  • Aatrox hitbox areas

    The highlighted areas denote the sweetspot - enemies are affected where the two areas overlap (See Range model edge range and Range center 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 edge range - i.e. if any part of your Gameplay radius 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 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 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 Spellblade and triggering Force Pulse's Force Pulse's passive.
  • 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 stack multiplicatively.
  • There's a small period of time in which Aatrox can't declare basic attacks after casting The Darkin Blade.(bug)
  • This ability will cast from wherever the caster is at the end of the cast time.

    Infernal Chains

    Infernal Chains

    Active: Aatrox sends a chain in the target direction that deals magic damage to the first enemy hit, doubled against Minion icon minions, and Slow icon slowing them for 1.5 seconds.

    Magic Damage:
    30 / 40 / 50 / 60 / 70 (+ 40% AD)
    Minion Damage:
    60 / 80 / 100 / 120 / 140 (+ 80% AD)
    Slow:
    25 / 27.5 / 30 / 32.5 / 35%

    If this hits an enemy Champion icon champion or large Monster icon monster, a Focused Resolve tether is formed between the target and the ground beneath them for 1.5 seconds, during which they are True Sight icon revealed.

    If the tether is not broken by the end of its duration, the target is dealt the same magic damage again and Airborne icon pulled to the center of the area.

    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.
    • Spell Shield Spell shield will block the chain's application and initial damage but not the aftereffects of one already applied.
    • This ability will cast from wherever the caster is at the end of the cast time.

    Tips & Tricks
    • To succesfully escape when moving in a straight line away from Aatrox requires at least 628 movement speed.

    Edit

    Umbral Dash

    Passive: Aatrox Heal power icon heals for 16% (+ 0.9% per 100 bonus health) of non-Blaze persistent post-mitigation damage he deals against enemy champions.

    Umbral Dash

    Active: Aatrox Dash dashes in the target direction.

    Umbral Dash Bladework resets Aatrox's basic attack timer and can be cast during his other abilities without cancelling them and vice versa.

    Info
    • The Dash 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. (bug)
    • 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.

    Arena icon Arena differences edit
    • Healing changed to 18 / 19.5 / 21 / 22.5 / 24% of damage dealt.

    Bonus Movement Speed:
    60 / 80 / 100%

    Whenever Aatrox scores a champion Damage rating takedown, he extends the duration by 5 seconds and becomes unleashed again.

    Bonus Attack Damage:
    20 / 32.5 / 45% AD
    Increased Healing:
    50 / 75 / 100%
    ▶️   "Fight! Or be forgotten!"

    Info
    • His resource bar indicates the remaining duration of World Ender.
    • World Ender persists through Revival icon resurrection effects.
      • World Ender's healing amplification applies to the health gained by resurrecting.
    • World Ender will cast from wherever Aatrox is at the end of the cast time.
    • Casting World Ender while it is still active renders Aatrox's wings invisible and removes the timer on the resource bar. (bug)

    Aatrox OriginalSkin
    Original
    RP 880
    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.
