“If you do not get hooked by his E you are fine to just lane normally and bully. The reason why he is difficult is bacause if you fight him at level 6 with your red white gun it is very close and you have to play it very well so you can outplay him with your coombo + barrier if you want to fight him and get ahead through outplaying him.”
“Darius is all about give and take, if his E is up and you land E be prepared to jiggle back and forth. If he pulls you, be prepared to fight or die.”
“You can hard win level 1 with Q extension and breaking his bone plating with 3rd Q however this is a bit of a coinflip. I prefer to just wait for level 3, short trade continuously and eventually all in with ignite. If the Darius respects me level 1 I will instead play for level 2 advantage and then proceed to bully him with it.
He can disrupt your all in and even cancel your 3rd Q with his pull/E, to avoid this Q dance through him to make him miss.
Don't get hit by the outer part of his Q.
Don't all in if you have several stacks of his passive on you.
He is very susceptible to ganks.”
“Compra botas para evitar que te agarre.
Prioriza más la vida que la armadura, su E penetra armadura.
Juega defensivo, es muy complicado matarlo.
Vesta espinosa si compra curación.
Tu W anula su W.
Haz intercambios cortos, el sangrado terminará matándote.
Evita el ataque de su Q en el borde.Lo evitas alejándote o acercándote.
Casi no sirve la tenacidad contra darius, considera no usarla.”
“Darius is one that you should have trouble with. You can't walk up to the wave, he'll just kill you. You have to dance around him basically, taking Ghost here is required. Play safe and under tower until Prowlers spike and/or level 6.”
“Darius is the face of a bully top laners, and Sett is no exception. once Sett beat Darius but those days are gone and now he wins lane, rush bramble and take ignite, E him when he Q's and don't force yourself to fight him if you're not confident.”
“Immobile melee toplaner is Yorick favorite match up, especially Darius. Yorick is one of Darius biggest counter, because your cage prevent him from healing with Q edge, run people down, or even get to hit yorick 5 times. Remember to kite while he is trapped”
“Only engage with 6 Qs AAs and ignite. Block his W if possible. Don't E up when he still has E if you're looking 4 short trades.”
“Try to dodge his E. Go aftershock. If u try to poke him, take sustain runes. U can beat him at lvl 6.”
“Just flip him he tries to ult you and the fight should be won by you.
Just go early grievous first”
