Notes

  1. Updated for 14.1 League of Legends Patch.

How to play

  1. How this works? You rush Hextech Rocketbelt #1, Liandry's Anguish #2, and you use Hextech active to poke your enemies all the time, earning gold with First Strike.
  2. Then you adapt to the enemy team. Build tanky or more damage. You can play as utility tank, poke, or even you can go some AD items to still have plenty of damage. Depends on the team and how you want to play.
  3. For utility tank, remember that Liandry's Anguish works good with Serpent's Fang (to counter shields) and Oblivion Orb (to counter healing).
  4. Ingenious Hunter reduces cooldown of all active items, so Zhonya's Hourglass really works good with this build.
  5. Wait for First Strike and proc it with your combo, to deal damage and earn gold.
  6. Be careful to not get poked, because you waste First Strike procs.
  7. Your main combo is First Strike + Hextech Rocketbelt + get in range + E + Q.
  8. Your alternate combo just for poke is First Strike + Hextech Rocketbelt.

Tips and Tricks

Riot
  1. Decimate is a powerful harassment ability. Strike an enemy from maximum range for the greatest effect.
  2. Noxian Guillotine does more damage the more attacks you can land prior to it. Use Noxian Might to deal maximum damage.
  3. Darius benefits greatly from enhanced survivability. The longer you can prolong a fight, the more powerful he becomes.
