Tips Against Darius in Top Lane Tips Provided by MOBAFire Guide Authors

I Am Goliath says “Darius is a hard lane but easy champion to beat post level 9, I like to start Doran's shield in this matchup because it keeps you safe early which is what you want, I also run second wind in this matchup instead of conditioning, also early ninja tabi's can be great in this matchup since movement speed is so valuable against darius and a lot of them take ghost+flash. I also personally buy Black Cleaver in this matchup first because the HP is important for surviving, I also build frozen mallet third item after death's dance since HP is the only counter to his true damage and the slow comes in handy vs darius. Another thing to keep in mind is you can use your E before he pulls you and your E will go off right when you get pulled to him so he doesn't even get an auto attack off so I always reccomend just E'ing if you think he is going to pull you worst case scenario is you just E away. You should win this matchup level 9+ and once you have black cleaver if you aren't too far down, also try to dodge his Q heal and try to hit your E if you can E into him as he Q's to dodge the outer heal that is the most ideal and you will win the 1v1, if you made mistakes in lane or fought when you shouldnt have and you're behind you should still be able to win level 13+ as long as it's 1v1. Basically this is a don't make big mistakes early on matchup.”

Ayanleh says “Darius is a hard matchup. He's early game is much stronger than your's as you both look for extended trades he will just destroy you. Play safe till you get late and then you can destroy him once you get damage and stack armor.”

Sovereign Kitten says “I would highly suggest you to take PTA or the Glacial build. That is, if you feel uncomfortable playing against him with any other runes, like Summon DH or Electrocute. Boots will help you early game due to his +10 higher movement speed, which compliments PTA/Glacial. Otherwise feel free to start with Doran's Ring. Move towards him if he is going to land his (Q) spin so you can prevent a bleed stack & blind his (E) to prevent the 90% slow. Regardless of what you may think, this match-up goes either way. You either kite and avoid his pull or get caught and die. Glacial helps cheese him, unless he has Phase rush. ”

YoungTact says “My perma ban if i intend to play poppy. DO NOT PICK POPPY into this matchup. Care for his all in with Ghost. Try to dodge his Q's and if u get pulled in E towards a minion behind you. Play lane to farm and use W/R defensively if he plans to all in you.”
Pathetic Singed says “TAKE PHASE RUSH! Don't smash your keyboard. Darius is extremely difficult for all Singed players to deal with, don't try to fight Darius as he will almost always win the trades. Peel him off your team in team fights and he shouldn't be able to do too much. Proxy is recommended here. Your W prevents Darius from being able to R, which is useful when you know he's going for an all-in.”

PH45 says “Can be a difficult lane. Important thing is to block his W with your E and don't let him get his passive to 5 stacks on you. If you can't run out of his Q circle Q on him so you will be in the inner ring, denying him his heal. You outscale him quite well so just don't let him get ahead and you should win him. Early tabis also help quite a lot in this matchup. All in if he misses E, just be careful since most Darius's run Ghost so they will have kiting potential with it.”
Yamikaze says “Even: This lane favours you but the enemy still has kill pressure on you. More information found below.”

Kippari says “Skill matchup, Darius has long cooldowns and as a result, GP can very easily kill him early. Just remember that his passive is strong and he can kill you at level 6 if you don't stay alert.”

Kartagoo says “One of the Best if not THE BEST Counter for Garen. Careful for his Lv 1 Brush cheese if you walk to lane! Rather go around it past the Krugs. Get Lv 2 before him try to get an early Lead against him before he's Lv 3. Don't trade too much and don't let him get 5 stacks of his Passive. Even with a lead RESPECT his All-in potential if you are in the middle of the lane or further and has ghost he wants to All-in everytime and you are gonna die everytime. So if you are ending up pushing to hard rather lose some CS (Minions) and let him Push him into your Tower. Get Tabi's early. I rly kid you not, you and your team have it much easier killing a 0 3 Darius than a 3 0 One! if you are very behind or have only 1 kill go for Black Cleaver Rush so your team can later burst him down easier.”

Defensivity1 says “Can very easily kill you or chunk you for half your health bar if you get inside his E range, give up minions to not die or take too much damage at level 6 you should be able to kill him if played correctly.”

Stinkee says “Avoid picking Sion into Darius. This has been one of Sion's hardest matchups since the rework. It's not impossible to win this matchup though. Try to freeze your lane and look for when he tries to pull you and dodge it. You can win short trades with the help of your W but watch out for his all-in. Take Grasp of the Undying or Glacial Augment and max W. W max is great here because it gives you enough shield to win short trades and burst him with the shield damage. Sion's shield can be his highest damage ability, don't be afraid to use it offensively in many cases. Rush Sunfire Cape and Ninja Tabi and ask for ganks. Darius is easy to gank because he has no mobility and you should be freezing your lane. Be careful to not let Darius land everything on your and your jungler and win the 1v2.”
Drake6401 says “ Still a major threat post nerfs but there is a little more counter play now. In order to stay healthy, you will likely have to surrender the first wave and a half until he slow pushes to your tower. Stay in your side bush to get Exp and move out when the wave is getting to a safer spot. Play safe for level 3 and if you didn't take too much damage, you're in a decent spot now. You can go in for a trade at 25 and 30 Fury using the Safe escape combo. If your Q would be empowered, skip it and just auto-W. This method chunks Darius's HP because you will do more damage faster than him. When he's 40% to 30% HP, you can go for your first kill. Rush CDR with WarHammer and KindleGem. Get Q to level 2 or 3, and then scale E. This is geared towards closing the window Darius has to zone you while your E is down. Less zone time means you can get 25 Fury to trade more often. Buy Executioners Calling at a comfortable point to reduce his healing and 1v2 potential. ”

Olaf Only says “Survive until level 6, NEVER push the wave. If he goes Tank or has Ghost you won't be able to win all-ins vs him. After Black Cleaver you win 1v1 as you can kill him before he reaches 5 bleed stacks. Olaf is better in mid-game teamfights as Darius is easier to kite. Darius Outscales Olaf HARD.”

LiL Bunnie FuFuu says “Darius is difficult because you'll never be able to fight him after lvl 2 (assuming he levels his E. If he doesn't then lvl 3), regardless of your build or how ahead you are. His stats are better than yours, his pull is difficult to dodge (and gives armor pen), his Q allows him to potentially survive dives, and he'll zone you off of cs 24/7. While you do outrange him you can only poke very early on (lvl 1-2) and when his E is down. Still, he can Q in the middle of your auto and win the trade. Take aftershock and try to bait him into ganks. Flaying at the right time can make him miss his Q.”
BunnyFuFuu's Challenger Guide to Thresh [10.19] by LiL Bunnie FuFuu | Thresh Player
qasddsa says “Do not push the lane, freeze the wave, and keep your distance. If he walks up, you back up. You can take either Kleptomancy or Fleet Footwork against him. If he pulls you, you can disengage and deal some damage with Q and W. Remember that he only heals on the outside area of his spin, so once you're ranged you can use this to kite him and deny his heal.”
PH45 says “Darius is quite hard matchup for Qiyana. Darius is a big lane bully, and his damage output and his E make him a scary foe to face. Your best bet is to farm with Q from range and wait for ganks since you'll likely get squashed 1v1 unless you are miles ahead of him. You can kite him quite will with your dashes, but most Darius's run Ghost to lessen the chance of getting kited.”
Wawza says “Keep track of his bleed stacks retreat at 3-4 so he doesnt proc his passive and you should be ok. Killing him will be a matter of poking him down by abusing your range to be able to all in him, if he is playing safe go for short trades and freeze your lane so he has to overextend for farm.”

The Real Fake says “Darius completely denies Hecarim's laning power. His slows for E & W denies the damage boost from your passive, also prevents you from kiting him out. As you ramp up your Conqueror and Q, he just gets stacks his passive on you. Once everything is stacked up/ready (Q + Conq + Last Stand), Darius also has his passive ramped up with bonus AD and a max damage R ready to execute you. Darius is stronger than you throughout the whole game.”

Raen says “If you do 1 mistake especially in early he will just pop ghost and kill you. Try to get out of his Q or get close to him enough to deny heal. You need to be prepared with your E when you are sticking closely to Darius. He got AA range advantage (175 basically + 25 bonus from W) when you got only 125. Also don't try to fight him when he got 5 stacks on you from Hemorrhage. ”
CaptianMike says “Way too strong early and can easily dive you. True damage ultimate plus a reliable engage with his E makes this a terrible lane. I personally always ban him. Update: Darius just got buffed against tanks! This is a nightmare lane”

RTO says “I have a VOD review below that will break it down really well. Don't at all trade with him before level 3. If he uses an ability and misses after you get level 3, you will out trade him every time. Watch his passive stacks and do go in if he has ANY on you. ”
[10.19] RTO's 6,000 Game Challenger Croc Guide by RTO | Renekton Player
The_Unf0rgiv3n says “Darius can be quite hard to deal with. The only chance that you've got to do something is if he uses his Q to farm minions or if he misses it. Then you have 4-5 sec. to go in for a quick trade and get out before you lose too much HP because of his passive. If you don't manage to kill him before level 6, try harassing him with nados and when he gets below 40% HP, you can go for the kill. Also he will probably try to zone you away from the minions so if you are in danger of losing the trade, just stay within the XP range of the minions and wait for the wave to push to you.”

PH45 says “You can't really trade with him well as you are very short ranged so you will get many stacks of his passive if you try to trade. You can setup a gank for your jungler but avoid being hit with his Q since he will heal a lot if you both get hit.”
xXkillercrackXx says “Super scary to lane against but you're more useful later on. Try to not feed him and farm up.”

Persicum777 says “Darius is a simple beast, you need to get in, burst him with your empowered q and use the mobility to kite or disengage with him, successfully doing this will result in a won lane. Don't push he will control the lane from level 2 to 4 but you can cheese a Q on him early if you catch him in the jungle, dont over engage Especially if he has ghost.”
Persi's Complete Camille Guide by Persicum777 | Camille Player
PH45 says “Quite a difficult one, you can't really escape him that well once his got his grasp on you so try to play it safe and if your jungler comes make sure you stay out of his Q, you can avoid it by using your W on him as it blinks you onto him and you are momentarily untargetable so it wont hit you. ”

Anoying bro5 says “IGNITE RUNE PAGE: Also take Triumph rune. If he starts W, Do Not Trade With Him lvl 1. When he uses his Q you can dash into him to avoid healing him and taking the damage. You should try parrying his W over his pull, as his pull is very fast. Normally Darius will W after 1 autoattack after his pull. So when pulled, spam riposte. This varys on the player so make adjustments as necessary. If you missed parry on vital and his W, then save it for his ultimate if he is trying to all in you. This is also a match up you can take ignite as he mostly run ghost.”

PH45 says “Another really difficult lane. Darius is a lane bully against most melee laners and Sylas is no exception. Poke with your Q but don't get caught in his pull or you'll probably die. Darius has no escapes outside his summoners so keep your vision up and ask your jungler to gank. After a few deaths Darius will be pretty weak and you shouldn't be as afraid of him anymore if he is behind. Tabis are really valuable in this matchup.”

iZeal says “Respect his all-in. You can poke him safely with Q1. If he rushes armor, it gets much harder. Q1 is safe, but if you don't space Q2 perfectly, he can pull you even if you E away. In that case it is better to save your E for a Q3 while doding his Q. If he misses his E this is your time to harass him as it has a huge cooldown early on and he also runs oom after 3 Qs. Disrupt him in teamfights and don't let him stack up his passive on you.”

NeroZYN says “If played incorrectly, Darius can stomp you. Any slight miss positioning and you can easily die. You need to be able to dash into his Q to reduce the damage taken , and to fully commit to the fight. Do not try and kite away from him! His E is also buggy (in my opinion) making it really hard to dodge. Other than that, the matchup is actually very easy.”

Rhoku says “The Darius matchup can go both ways. You have to keep in mind that you outscale him. So if all else fails, you can simply play safe, give up CS, farm under turret and wait for later on in the game. So the matchup can be Even or just Impossible depending on how good the Darius player is. I myself, almost always crush Mordekaisers when I am on Darius so, believe me when I tell you that if the Darius player knows what he is doing, then you will NOT win the matchup alone. You might need your jungler. Here is the basic idea in this matchup. You need to A) use your full shield and B)fight in your ultimate. If you use your shield improperly, Darius will be able to just burst through it as it wont be that much. And if you fight outside your ultimate or fight him pre-6 you will just get shredderd. INSIDE your ultimate however, is a different story. If you are able to stick to him and hit EVERY single one of your abilities in your ultimate, you WILL kill him. Just make sure that you don't start the fight with stacks on you. In general, you should be looking to disengage whenever he gets any number of stacks on you. You can use the backwards E trick to disengage but good Dariuses will expect and avoid this. Poke him down early on with your Q but DO NOT fight him or let him get hits on you. Level 1 you can beat him if you can land an empowered Q on him but I wouldn't recommend it. He can snowball SO damn hard that it will seriously depress when you see how many times he will kill you. Revitalize and Second Wind are good. Seeker's Armguard and Ninja Tabi are also great. The lane becomes much easier if you have Ignite but if you die with ignite the lane is over. You LEGIT can't comeback.”

Dreadscythe95 says “He falls behind Kayle late game but he can turn her life into a nightmare for most of the game. Kayle can't punish him effectively when she turns ranged and his passive means that one small mistep and Kayle is dead, even with ultimate up. If he is an experienced Darius and he takes Phase Rush as well, it's probably gg for your lane.”

LoLReal says “Hard lane early levels, do not go for extended trades with him. Once we are 6 we can all in and win if lane has not gotten out of hand. Ignite is very good in this match up because snowballing is critical. Don't get behind in this match up or we won't win.”
ChaseMorePlz says “Remember that If you dodge his Q is prevents his heal. Keep in mind when playing against Darius that his Q will do significantly less damage when you're close to him. Basically, When you do a fast combo and you get all of your autos & abilities off you have the potential to out damage him in trades early on. Watch out for his E during ganks it has an annoyingly long range. It's a good idea to bait his Q out before you trade and slowly poke him down. ”

[10.19] RTO's Challenger Nasus Top Lane Guide by RTO | Nasus Player
ChaseMorePlz says “He does a lot of damage early game with his bleed so don't fight, trade or cs near him unless his abilities are down. You can stand in the center of his Q Decimate, the ability when he swings his axe in a circle to do damage. He is very immobile. Also has a rather long ranged pull on his E that you need to stay away from. Other than that, the matchup is easy and you can kill him with good stacks, farming and wave management. I like to play this matchup smart by not dying.”

Phrxshn says “One of the harder match-up. You will definitely need to mirror his Summoner's Spell(Flash/Ghost). Decimate(Q) needs to be dodged or juked out, but if you can't go to his handle of his Axe as it does not apply Hemmorhage nor heal him. Fight him after he casts his Crippling Strike(W) and duration goes away. Save your Primal Howl for his Apprehend(E), let him use his (E) first then Primal Howl. Avoid fighting him with 5 stacks of Hemorrhage. Use your Primal Howl or Infinite Duress to prevent him from casting his Noxian Guillotine(R).

Fan22 says “This lane it's a nightmare, his true damage and Bleed Hurta Chogath a lot. This lane it's very complicate, dont try to fight him early, only if you are really sure you can kill him or in the first levels (level 1-4). In this matchup i reccomend going some Ap with a dorans ring and poking him all you can, also having extra ap and mana let's you farm safely with Q, thus having less risk of diying against darius. Remember to you can use your Q or W to disengage after he uses E or if he is gonna use R. The W silence doesn't let darius use Q and R, wich are important abilities.”

ERNESTSAURUS says “GRASP (SCALING) BUT INSTEAD OF PRESENCE OF MIND AND BLOODLINE, GO BISCUITS DELIVERY TIME WARP TONIC - CLOTH ARMOR + 4 POTS = Darius is another really hard matchup for Nasus, a good Darius will beat you in every stage of the game regardless of your build and stacks and I highly recommend permabanning him in case you want to climb only with Nasus. In case you have another permaban and you get to fight him, I recommend rushing tabi's regardless of the team unless the team is 4 AP and Darius. Nowadays Darius players will play with Nimbus Cloak + Celerity with Ghost and Dorans Blade, but there is a slight problem with this, he struggles in short trades, so to effectively trade against him, look to bait his E and then E + Q with Grasp proc once you get around 130 stacks. If you punish his E cooldown consistanly you will be able to leave him low enough were he has to back or you can allin him, also when fighting him in every scenario, you have to look to burst him, if he is allowed to stack his passive on someone and then spam Ults, its a guaranteed loss since you will be behind in this matchup. As for early laning phase, just play as safe as you can, get in XP range while hiding in bushes. This is one of the most possible and harder matchups for Nasus and again, i highly recommend banning him. Don't be upset if you are 40+ minions behind him early on, it's the nature of this matchup.”

Teynachi says “My nightmare. I ban him in every game from January 2020. You don't have much chances to win this matchup. I recomend ban him every game like me, but if you play vs him, just play full defensive. Don't try fight him early, but if there is no way out, avoid his Q which gives him a heal and his E at all costs. Try to fling him back if he goes all in.”
[10.19] Teynachi's Diamond Singed Top Lane Guide by Teynachi | Singed Player
chrisorion says “Unflinching + Bone Plating or Ignite + Nimbus Cloak. Darius wants you to take extended trades early as his passive is very strong. You win if you avoid his Q and parry his W before he gets 5 bleed stacks on you. If you can't avoid his Q, walk in the inner part of Q to avoid him healing and getting a bleed stack. Preferably parry W then E because the risk reward of parrying E is higher and not worth the risk. Parrying W slows his stacking and stops him from slowing you. You outscale mid-late game so don't let him snowball early game.”

Shumair says “Darius is a pain to deal with. You have to play laning phase slowly. Throughout lane try to whittle him down with your Q at max range. Your Q outranges his e slightly and his Q has a delay. However, due to the recent buffs to ghost, he can pop it then immediately E-W you. Due to this I would recommend that you play safe and outscale, even if you lose cs. You can fight him at around level 10 and win if you're even. Ask for jungle assistance if you're not sure about an all-in.”
Fan22 says “Darius will harras you everytime you try to farm and deal a lot of damague, the worst thing its that hes ultimate deals TRUE DAMAGUE and his E gives him free armor penetration. Be careful if he has ignite. Against Darius ask your jungler for ganks, run TP and Doran´s shield for sustain. Bramble vest helps a lot in this matchup because it reduces the healings of Darius Q, runes, deaths dance and Conqueror (common items on darius).”

Twist21 says “Darius is a champion that can beat most melee champions in 1v1 due to his tanky itemization options and his passive.Against Darius we want to avoid getting hit by his E and we also want to dodge his Q with our E by going inside it.After that you will be able to kill him. I would take flash ghost with LT Resolve Runes into this matchup.”

NickCola Tesla says “As a Darius main, there is zero way for a competent Darius to lose this lane. Go the tank rune setup designed for ranged matchups, since you don't even want to get into AA range of him. Or, take Arcane Comet and purchase a Doran's Ring if you want to poke at him more, and consider maxing your E first. Once you begin stacking armor, you can CONSIDER stepping up to melee range to CS more appropriately, but I would still just give up anything past the halfway point towards his tower, even if you're playing from range.

StrikeX114 says “Darius' main threat comes in his passive, Apprehend (E), and his ultimate. Be careful to maintain a safe distance from him, and he won't be much of a threat towards you until his first major item spike.”
ItsmeKenny says “Don't waste E randomly or you win die. Use leap to dodge his outer ring Q. Go for short trades aganist him. He wins you at level 6 all in.”

Bombabo says “Darius will do everything in his power to bully you in lane. He will punish you for trying to farm, and can turn trades into fights, which heavily favor him. Even if you are ahead, Darius is more than capable of turning a fight to his advantage, So I would recommend playing safe until you hit your powerspike and can easily deal with him ”

I Am Goliath says “Darius is a very hard match up for any tank. You are going to want to try to bait out his Q's and not let him get any of his passive stacks on you. If he ever gets multiple stacks try to back off. Try your best to stay alive in this lane and wait for a gank since Darius doesn't do good against a gank.”
GoliathGames' Master guide to Maokai by I Am Goliath | Maokai Player
wallobear53 says “His healing mostly comes from the edge of his Q so moving into his champion model or away from him stops him from getting the heal on the edge. Darius' Passive stacks up over time through his Auto-attacks or his Q. Be cautious to not let it keep stacking as it will build up to a lot of damage and will be a good way to finish you off in an extended fight. He has a strong early game skirmishing potential, so be careful as he can do a surprising amount of damage, as well as sustain himself. You may want to consider investing in Grievous Wounds to counter his sustainability. ”

ForgottenProject says “Extremely Strong Kit in Lane. His lane can be Oppressing if you keep letting him trade with you. [1]Parry his Hook and he's a Sitting Duck. If you mess up you're in for a beating. [2]Parrying his W is good [3]You can Q into him when he uses his Q to deny the Healing. [4]If he somehow gets an early lead make sure you have Boots or you'll get Run-down. ”
[S10] Rank #1 Fiora Guide - ForgottenProject by ForgottenProject | Fiora Player
CFCryo says “Representative of the typical BIG JUGGERNAUT TOP, Darius has huge damage when you get caught. This is an example of someone you should probably take Aftershock for. For Darius specifically, use Flay (E) to push him towards you, pulling yourself inside of the Q circle. Pushing him away from you takes too long, and he's likely moving away from you already, perfectly landing you in the outer circle. If you die once, don't try anything funny again, or it won't just be once.”
I Am Goliath says “Darius has a big con which is being kited and that's what Gnar is good at doing so this matchup should be fairly easy, the only thing you have to look out for is if he ever gets on you somehow you're probably toast if you're in mini because of squishy you are and how strong his kit is, although like I said you can kite him really well, and once you get frozen mallet I don't think he can do much to you. Remember that your auto range is about his E range so if he ever pulls you in just e away and keep kiting him, he doesn't have another way to get onto you unless he has flash or ghost up.”

I Am Goliath says “Very hard since darius does super well against tank characters. He can also cancel your Q with his E so keep that in mind. It's not super easy for him to kill you but it's practically impossible to kill him in this lane, so try your best to just survive and scale up, use your ult to get other lanes ahead. If he ever gets a few stacks on you just back off of him.”
GoliathGames' Master guide to Sion by I Am Goliath | Sion Player
Womsky says “Scaling set up with doran's shield/long sword start, A boring ass lane if knows what he is doing, if he has no ignite you can trade lvl 1 with fury, its just about punishing his cds especially if he misses E, but over all a hard lane cause you get punished by half of your health bar if u mess up while his mistakes goes on unchecked mostly, the higher you get in elo the worst it gets, cause any gank/disturbance in wave which causes the lane to push for him could be fatal, and darius players learn to wave control well and punish there over extended enemies, just scale and farm if you see no chances of a kill, especislly if he rushes tabies like a rat, if the wave starts pushing into him you can look to trade some of your hp to make him push the wave, which is by letting him auto you or Q the wave to make him push you in, a very good way to get back the wave into your favour if it gets messy.”

laoshin3v3 says “Conqueror One of the hardest matchups especially early game if he uses E right before ult you won't be able to parry it. Dash into him when he uses Q so he doesnt get his healing off and either parry his ult or his E. 3+ Items you outscale him and win hard. ”

AlanVenator says “Darius is considered to be a lane bully, he is no exception against Urgot. The key to winning this matchup is survive the early game. Use your E every time he tries to grab you. Play safely and try to poke him a little bit since you will deny his all-in potencial. After level 6, you can kill him on your own if you play it well. Since he is an inmobile champion you can easily kill him every time with the help of your jungler so ping help every time your ultimate is up. If you don't fall behind, once you get Black Cleaver + lvl 9 it's free win. Do not let him snowball early game!!!”
Urgot Detailed Guide + Itemisation by AlanVenator | Urgot Player
Olaugh says “Ask your jungler for help, to shut him down early, don't be afraid to trade with him, if you are playing properly, you can win 1v1, however put some respect especially if he goes flash ghost!, if he collects 5 stacks on you, it knows to be very sticky, so be aware of his damage while fully stacked. When your minions are low move away so you dont get hit by q.Try to bait his q so he doesnt heal and get free stack. When he finishes minion with w ,all in him especially if u are lv 6 since he just used W ,his E doesnt work while you are in R and with ur Phage item + R your movm speed is insane and you rapidly go into him so he will probably miss q or activate it too late or wont be able to hit it at all, if he has ignite then be REALLY careful and ask jg to gank maybe even mid to roam.”

I Am Goliath says “This matchup is usually lose lane win game. My tips for playing against darius is to be very smart with your W, as long as you have this up he should never really be able to kill you as long as you land it, this is another lane where you want to survive the early game because he won't win 1v1 against you in the split late game and darius sucks in teamfights as well, he also doesn't have an easy way to kill your ghouls in lane so you can punish him with those whenver you have graves up, other tips for playing against darius are to try to bait out his pull and try to dodge the healing part of the Q you can do this by either walking into him or just trying to dodge it completely. Just remember as long as you have your W up you always have a way to trap him in should you need to run.”
GoliathGames' Master guide to Yorick by I Am Goliath | Yorick Player
Tauricus2017 says “Ok Darius is very strong champion I admit it but If you are playing Poppy, Nothing can go wrong. When you get pulled do not panic! try to stay inside or outside of Dariuses Decimate (Q). To help yourself with it you can use Heroic Charge (E) or Steadfast Presence (W). Also do not let him to stack his Hemorrhage (PAS.) on you or he might kill you with ease. Sometimes you can even bait his Apprehend (E) and then you have got 15 sec. of serenity.”
Super Tank Poppy (STP) by Tauricus2017 | Poppy Player
SpartanDumpster says “This is a match up that can go either way. Darius is tanky enough for your passive to threaten him, but not enough to guarantee you'll win trades. His pull is something to make sure you dodge. Darius' often have a habit of spinning immediately after using their pull ability, so as long as you dodge that pull, he'll have two abilities on cooldown, which may be the best time to punish him before level 6.”

AWierdShoe says “Try to go forward baiting for his Q and backing off without getting hit whenever you can. If Q is on cooldown, then you can go for short trades, blocking his W with your W and getting out of there ASAP. Never do extended trades in this match-up except if he's already low and you KNOW you can kill him before he kills you. If you’re in the middle of a trade that looks good for you HP-wise, then once he starts his Q, E inside the middle of it to deny most of the damage and all of the healing.”
Chili Dog says “Runes: Conqueror, Triumph, Alacrity, Last Stand + Magical Footwear/Futures Market, Cosmic Insight. Sub Runes: CDR, Damage, Armor Summoners: Ignite or Teleport Darius is a one sided skill matchup in Darius's favor. That bleed, that god damn bleed. Anyway, you CAN win this matchup however, you have to know Darius's damage compared to your own. Depending on what Darius starts will determine when you can trade. He started Q? You can trade lvl 1 if he missed you with his Q. Started W? Can't trade until lvl 3. Started E? Why? Whatever, if he misses his pull you can go in at any lvl and win. Also, what summoners he took are a big part of the matchup too. Ignite? Do short trades and burst him down when low. TP? Try to keep him in lane as long as possible by short trading. Ghost? Just don't fight him. Honestly, you can't kite him. If not confident, just freeze the wave and look for TP. ”

ClanBlade says “Similar to Sett, just learn to kite and E into him when he presses Q to avoid the edge. Also somthing i learned is NEVER go for the 3rd Q unless it will kill him or your jungler is ganking as you will just allow him to do his full combo with no retalition as make him easily stack his passive, his E has a long cooldown so use that to try and all in if he misses it. Buy an executioners so he can't heal that much of his Q.”

Venegis says “Darius players have IQ of between zero to 200. Make sure his passive is not stacking on you. Poke him continiously with your Q as you always do.”
Teemain says “If you're a good Garen player, you know you HAVE to kill Darius at least 2-3 times before you really gain an advantage. His Q has a rather short range if he misses his E grab. Try to bait out his Q and then go in. Make sure you get CLOSE and PERSONAL, since his Q does the most damage the farther away from the center of Darius's avatar. His W is annoying because it slows, so when he pulls out his W+E+Q combo, charge right into him with Q+E+W with Ignite to maximize your damage and minimize his. This will make you win the damage trades. Unfortunately, Darius will still be a HUGE threat even if you win your lane. So try to kill him like 8 times throughout the game, or just push their Top Inhibitor, and then force out Darius 1 on 1 by looking at the mini map. Or just try to kill him first every time during the teamfights. Your mission is to keep Darius from farming and killing Champions at all times before he gets stronger than you.”

Pats45 says “Darius is the only match-up where this build will not work and as Zac Top there just is no counter play. Zac's trades take a long time in which he heals back up. Darius is built for extended trades and bleeding out opponents. You are given a ban for a reason. Ban Darius 100% of the time if you are planning to go Zac top.”

ModxLoL says “Similar to Tryndamere. Riven wins if she doesn't make any big mistakes. There are a few things to watch out for in the Darius matchup. One is obviously the outside of his q. Luckily it's pretty easy for Riven to juke it with her Q or E. The second thing is be careful of getting pulled back in after you do your combo. You want to make sure you short trade with him and leave while he is stunned. If you stay too long, you're going to get pulled back and he will hit you really hard on your way back to the turret. The other thing to keep in mind is that most Darius players run Nimbus Cloak with Ghost, so you really have to be careful about trading in the early levels when you don't have CDR. If you use too many abilities and you can't get out, he will instantly ghost and run you down all the way to your turret. ”

MrMad2000 says “Skill matchup, you can snowball early. Favors him past 6.”
Stiwy says “Darius is strong and he will be sure you remember it by constantly bullying you. Press the attack is a good choice against him, since he can outdamage you in long trades. If you can keep dodging his E grab and have a decent farm you should be good. You can start trading at level 9 when your W is maxed but its still risky. Keep your ult for when the jungler decides to come. Tabis are vital here and bramble vest is too. And please, ask a gank only when both you and jungler are healty or else he will get a double kill and then, you will need much more than a gank to stop this angry boy ”
CptTeemoOnDuty says “Darius is an "Easy matchup" but most darius players won't be that unskilled later on, your only job is to avoid his dmg which with teemo's swiftness should be easy. (AVOID E AT ALL COSTS) Check more info below. ”

KingNklaus says “Way too strong early for Morde but you outscaling hard many people will think that Seeker's is a good choice but the best option is to go Haunting Guise it will help you to kill him fast enough so that you dont have to deal with his 5 bleed's also always ALWAYS flash his Q if he doesnt get that heal he's has good as dead all of this only post 6 dont be stupid he WILL kill you before 6 almost regardless If he uses Q on minions you can go for a trade but do not overstay you cant kill him fast enough early game but you can definetly hurt him ”

TIP: When you see him try to dunk you, go into stealth, it cancels his ult and can make for a clutch moment where he doesn't kill you. Try to play more passive and avoid longer trades.

EntxRecoil says “Lethal Tempo Runes and Build. Ignite + Flash OR Ghost + Flash. Dorans Shield start. Darius has very strong all in trades and his passive when stacked 5 times (stacks every auto attack and when he hits his q on the outer edge and his ultimate) gives him a lot of attack damage and does damage over time to you. Darius can use multiple keystones, starting items, and starting abilities. Darius with Q start is strong for early clear to get level 2 first, Darius with W start will look to take trades with you when you walk up for minions. Biggest thing to pay attention is they keystone + summoner spells. Ghost+Flash darius with conqueror has extremely good all in and if you are caught too far in the lane with a pull he can usually burn your summoners and then kill you as well. If this darius pulls you at a bad time for you, your best hope is to turn on him and all in and pray for crits. TP + Flash Darius with aftershock can be abused early if you take ignite, whether he starts q or w is irrelevant because your allin can be stronger then his so look to build fury and get level 2 first and all in him. Ignite + Flash darius with conqueror you basically just let him push you in and only farm don't trade. This is the strongest early game setup on darius to punish early but it falls off later since he can't kite you as well without ghost. The darius matchup in general is a lot about punishing cooldowns on his q and finding spots to take short trades with an auto attack + spin out without being forced into an all in by being pulled. Tryndamere does outscale this matchup in the mid-late game 1v1, but can be hard to dive him 100-0 so if you find yourself in that situation where he is just sitting under turret, then push him in and look for opportunities to outrotate him with your superior out of combat mobility and flank his team.”

Dantheman81 says “From my experience there are some ways to stop the dunkmaster. Darius will almost always play aggressive early, you can take advantage of this by having a strong early jungler presence, or playing passive until you get enough Ghouls to poke him with. If he manages to get all of his stacks onto you do not fight anymore otherwise you will die and not have a fun time. The new thornmail is a wonderful pickup against him as well.”

GARDENZE says “Trocar com um bom Darius exige uma precisão clinica; compre botas de segundo item, deixe a wave puxar pra sua torre e a controle bem, evite a todo custo farmar perto de Darius pois qualquer troca melee até o level 6 leva a seu flash ou sua morte, farme com o Q no maximo range e com o E principalmente os minions canhão, pra ganhar a troca dê poke com os ghouls e o baite caitando com Q e correndo nos CDs, baite ele que vai atrás de voce até que sua HP esteja bem baixa por causa dos ghouls e finzalize. OBS: deixe seu jungler de lado a maior parte do tempo do contrario será um double kill.”
SuPIeX says “A good darius will be a nightmare. Just sit back and farm until you have bami's cinder and bramble vest. Then you can take short trades with your e and disengage with q. When trading, always wait until he uses his e, then you can disengage at any time by using q directly on yourself and backing off. If he takes ghost, he will still be able to catch up after your Q so you'll have to play even safer.”

You can even fight him while his all passive stacks are on you, just don't get kited. Just remember these things below and it's guaranteed win. Take ignite, as he mostly get's ghost and it makes your win secured Always buy doran blade try to trap him in the bushes lvl 1, aa+e when he comes, if he contest the fight he may end up dead, otherwise lose half hp. Don't use E and W(he can heal from it) until he uses Q, almost always(not if he has wave advantage) punish him when he does it so you deny his dmg and heal and force all in or bad trade for him. Later on you get's ranged Q so just poke him and all in with ult. He may kill you if you are not paying attention but it's rare, just don't get caught without ult.”

ACE4291 says “You can bully and tank this champ early BUT be warned his bleed can hurt and cause you to die after winning. His R is deadly if used right. Recommend early bully. His buff with ghost makes him diffcult compared to patch 10.11 darius. He will likely not have ignite now so thats great for early. BUT yea this boy is fast now ”

DirtyDishSoap says “The problem with this lane is the insane output of his damage and the ability to heal. Your wall prevents his from healing, and he can't kill your minions fast enough. BUT, if you give him just one kill in lane, he'll become a problem. I personally ban Darius, he has huge snowball potential and it's not really easy to deal with him if he isn't a potato.”

Mr. Popper says “Darius is a special matchup because if you go even with him you auto win after level 9 due to Gnars passive gaining a little attack range after each level up. Since level 9 is a bit aways, Phaserush can help you stay safe against the ghosting Darius. Only proc Phaserush after he slows you if he pulls you in. ”

Build fleet or grasp or if you are confident enough a build like hail of blades, you just want to go for quick short trades to not let him stack up his passive damage.”

RivalOCE says “A very cheesy matchup. If he takes ghost/ignite you can't win an all-in unless he misses his E. Same principle as Fiora, short trades but if he hits his E run. If he has TP this lane is much easier. E or Q inside his Q to stop healing. Don't be baited level 1.”
ShaharKarisi says “Darius is a really strong champion and has great stats all around, but Bramble Vest can counter his sustain. If possible, take ignite too.”
SirDrPotato says “Darius has a very strong laning phase and is way easier to play than fiora, this means that is very hard for him to make mistakes and it's entirely up to you to pull out (wink) some good stuff: I strongly advise to NOT riposte his Q or W. (Q is the ability where he spins and W is an empowered hit). Riposting one of these often means he'll just grab you after and kill you. If you REALLY need to riposte Q or W make sure you try to dodge his grab with your lunge right after your riposte ends. Riposting his ultimate is also a pretty good option. More details down below.”

TrinityForceYasuo says “Darius is a big bully in lane. Try to punish him for the minions level as much as you can. If you do so lvl 2 if he uses his Q and fails it go in for a trade/all-in, if he didnt use his Q till then and he does after you are in combat with him do not dash onto him untill he uses Q so when he does use it dash on him to deny the heal and take much less dmg. If you fail early you shouldnt really be able to win against him later in the lane expect if you get camped. Try tom avoid at all cost not to give him 5 stacks because after that you wont win.Dash around the minion wave when there is a big one and try to kite him. If he gets 3 to 4 stacks onto you kite so the stacks will go away and then you can go back in for a trade. Good darius players might avoid all that stuff and just smash you in lane. If they play with teleport don't be that afraid, but if he does play with ghost its really scary, one mistake and you are dead, he will run you down and you wont escape.”
Subject3 says “winning and losing against darius is a sweet thin line you can somewhat out trade him at lvl 1-5 but after lvl 6 expect some high retaliation. and if somehow darius gets a few kills under his belt and is leading with gold, his bleed will be too much for you to handle especially once he finishes black cleaver. best strategy? save your swallow until he uses his q, once you swallow him the q will still go off but he will be in your stomach which means the cleaving end wont hit.”

Echostyle says “Summary - PTA FOR DAMAGE, GLACIAL FOR KITING(YOUR CHOICE). MAINTAIN AA DISTANCE, PLAY AGGRESSIVE EARLY LEVELS, PLAY CLOSE TO WALLS, DODGE HIS Q, TRY TO KEEP WAVE MIDDLE OF LANE, KEEP WATCH FOR ENEMY JUNGLER. Despite the fact most Darius players run Ghost and that Darius's kit seems like it would fuck up your kiting, it's actually very easy to kite and disengage from him as a Vayne. The goal of this matchup is constantly keeping full AA range against a Darius as his pull range is 535 while your AA range is 550. When his pull is down is when you want to go aggressive and try to apply damage on him. Levels 1, you want to just last hit minions and poke darius when he goes for it, or push slightly, then get it to slow push to you(if he started pull for whatever reason and pulls you in, immediately try to disengage and back off and just last hit). Levels 2 you might still be able to keep this up depending on what he takes next, but levels 3 and on you need to be especially focused on keeping distance from him because if he pulls you in and you don't have condemn up, you are fucked. In the case that he does pull you in, just try to tumble away as fast as possible. If he uses Q after his pull, condemn him away as fast as possible. In this matchup, its preferable to try to keep the lane in the middle or on your side so you have an easier time poking him down or even killing him. However its still okay to push him into his tower. If he has both ghost and phase rush however, you should play the lane closer to your tower or he'll be able to just flash on you, pop ghost and use his whole combo while getting movement speeds much higher than you can kite out even with using condemn.”
LolLogan says “BAN HIM. He has everything that you do but bleed stacks make him more powerful”
The Heart Of Demacia by LolLogan | Garen Player
HighSnork says “He is pretty weak against you. However his E range is just slightly shorter than your auto range, so bait his E by walking up to him and casting Q, which is a safe distance away from his E. Then when his E is on CD punish him with your auto.”

Force him to use his E to engage then W >> Q >> E with Bami's cinder to proc phase rush to disengage and easily out trade him. In this matchup, you will want to keep trades short and utilize E mainly for the phase rush proc, so I recommend maxing your Q.”

Auntbetsie says “The same with Garen he can sit in between the waves to apply pressure and you have to sit back and farm under turret. Some times at level 1/2 you could try and get an all in just for the fact that Darius cant do a full combo and if he misses his Q other than that you have basically lost lane unless your jgl puts on constant ganks and pressure.”

Discord Rengar Mains says “Darius is easy early level, but after level 6 unless your decently ahead darius will probably win. A way to play around his level 6 is to Leap + E + Q and save W run away. He will usually pull you and slow you that's when you double W his CC and run away.”
Rengar Mains Community Guide ft. ScrubNoob, CallMeExiled, P1 by Discord Rengar Mains | Rengar Player
Discord Rengar Mains says “This is usually my go to ban, Darius is impossible to duel. Normally, AD Rengar can trade with Darius pre 6 because he has the damage to keep up, But in AP Rengar's case, gunblade is the major power spike, and by the time you get it, Darius is probably around level 7. Roam after 6 and try to avoid him, or play under tower until mid game”
Rengar Mains Community Guide ft. ScrubNoob, CallMeExiled, P1 by Discord Rengar Mains | Rengar Player
Discord Rengar Mains says “Just permaban this champion. Darius already screws over most melees in the game, but in the case of Rengar he can just obliterate you so easily that the moment he gets ahead you are pretty much done. You need to put in at least 10 times the effort he needs to beat you in order to go even in lane, and, taking into account he is very popular nowadays... banning him is just the better option.”

Circas says “This lane kinda sucks. It is very winnable BUT you need to play it perfectly. You only win if you get 5 stacks and hit all your abilities and you need to be careful not to get pulled out of your Q or you instantly lose. You stack your passive faster than Darius obviously so use that to your advantage. You do not take short trades with Darius when you go in you are committed and you cannot half-ass it. A good Darius will know that he can abuse you level 1 and he will most likely try to cheese you in tri bush (if you leashed red side) or he will sit in top lane bush and wait for you to walk up to the wave and try to cheese you with his Crippling Strike (W) and slow you and just out auto you. Start with your Flawless Duet (E) and wait till you are level 3 or 4 to go in on him. Build up stacks near turret because if they wave is past river towards him you CANNOT fight him. You need stacks and you need a lot of lane room to run him down when you go in. Darius will kill you if you miss something. Can be outplayed but it is hard.”

Wolfychu says “Most people find difficult to play against Darius but you can win by not being hit by his Q and by trading a lot with him using the Q W auto attack Q auto attack combo and after doing it going out using EQ to bait Darius E.

Dejuronto says “Darius early game is also one to worry about deeply. If you miss your skillshots, you're heavily vulnerable to his pull and passive. If he has ghost, Darius can make you miss some skillshots even more when he runs after you or running away FROM you. Your best option is to find a safe distance from him and try to threaten him with your passive. If he misses any of his skillshots, you can most likely find that weakpoint and try to win a trade.”

Loki029 says “I personally hate to Play vs a darius, but if you know how to kite, then this darius will itself start playing garen instead of darius. Ok his passive is abnoormal stong and if you mispredict and Flash too late you still die (already happened multiple times). (Several Hints: 1: Iy you want to trade poke use solence and use w so his first attack won t deal a Thing on you. 2 Don t sty on lane too Long when at 40% hp. even with your passive and w you can t survive a true damage execution./ if he could ult you use silence and hope that you run out fast enough) ”
Loki029 says “Stick near him or die, start with Cloth armor and potions. go out of fight BEFORE he gets 5 stacks, silence him in or before his Q, Q after his E so you can run away from his slow, Skill W early many Points so you can stay longer in Lane, Build AD and Lifesteal may even executionier if he is skilled to kill him faster, don t fight him pr 6 too often, spare your Hp and try to trade better than him, Don´t Forget your creeps they can help you too kill him ( his W Counts as AA so soon he does it they will attack him) Consider Building Armor or Guardians Angle to deny his Ultimate reset.”
Loki029 says “Play safe, sounds stupid but deny him farm and if you fight then be sure about it, only stay if you are sure that you can, if you get ahead early, then you will win, Late Game maybe even.”

AkenoSenpai says “This match up can be tricky as it can easly turn into a hard match up if not played correctly, due to darius being a champion that punishes mistakes very heavly. Let the wave push into u, in this match up especially you might want to give up cs, u really do need to keep ur hp. Once you start slowpushing, and Darius gets to close feel free to all in him (lvl 3 or higher). The way to fight darius is as followed: E -> Q -> orbwalk. Keep your second Q for his own Q. Jumping to him once he starts Q animation, cancels his Q dmg as well as his healing and a stack for his passive, which is very important.”

Fique atento no lvl 2 do Darius, coloque sempre 1 barril atrás de você, se o jogador de Darius for esperto, ele upou o E, tente desviar do puxão, se você conseguir, poderá agressivar e provavelmente o matará. Recomendo comprar 1 doran blade na primeira volta, se o time inimigo tiver outros campeões com curas ou roubo de vida, compre 1 carrasco. Nessa matchup, também séria interessante trocar a sterak por dançarina fantasma, a velocidade de movimento da dançarina deixará sua vida mais facil, além de aumentar sua chance de crítico.”

TrollingSmurfGr says “Representative of the typical BIG JUGGERNAUT TOP, Darius has huge damage when you get caught. This is an example of someone you should probably take Aftershock for. For Darius specifically, use Flay (E) to push him towards you, pulling yourself inside of the Q circle. Pushing him away from you takes too long, and he's likely moving away from you already, perfectly landing you in the outer circle. If you die once, don't try anything funny again, or it won't just be once.”

Thr3shPrinc3 says “( NB!!! READ THE "MATCHUPS" SECTION OF THE GUIDE CHAPTER! ) This is normally a lane you can't win. Darius can out bully you early and has more sustain in fights even if you play Fleet Footwork. If you do play vs him in lane always try and flay him TOWARDS you when he Q's. You should be able to catch him off-guard the first couple of times and deny his healing (and a lot of damage) , but it won't keep working. Flaying him away from you takes too long and you will only end up eating his axe. Just try and poke him out and farm up as best as possible. Killing him isn't impossible, but it requires HIM to make a mistake close to your turret. Just be sure to capitalize on the mistake if he does. ”

Darkseige555 says “Darius is ban worthy while playing poppy. This monster will make you give up lane as soon as he has level 3. Never go past the river against him, especially if he goes ghost or ignite. I personally ban him every game, but if you prefer to ban someone else and have the bad luck to face him, you can build a early bramble vest to punish him and get greavous wounds. Sunfire cape is also a good option. The real challenge is to not die in laning phase: it takes a lot of discipline and do not get cocky if he is playing more passive than usually because he is most likely baiting you. If you do survive laning phase, It become much better in the teamfights because he won't be able to destroy you anymore, but I suggest going for a more support build to let others carry for you since you will be short on gold after that rough laning phase.”

Daedralus says “This guy is gonna be a pain. DO NOT FIGHT HIM EARLY. He can destroy you with his passive burn. Look towards baiting him under tower. His passive is very likely to get tower aggro. If he is under your tower, and you have less than 4 stacks, ult him once he is around half HP, and make sure to dodge him until then. If you can Q then ult, its even better. This way, your tower should deal with him along with your, while granting your full HP back, and preventing him from having enough stacks to even do a fair amount of damage with his ult. With an additional fear prepped, the kill should be easy, but only with the towers help of course as this will give around 4 shots guaranteed at him. Other than, avoid fights unless you get really fed and can one-shot him before he can stack enough. It is very possible that you can =)”

ozmankaan says “2nd built with aftershock goes good against darius, u can out dam him with that built. plus darius is too common nowadays, just keep in mind never take a darius easy, never follow him in bush, dont think u can over power him when he is low on health, dont give him early kills if u do u lose ur lane prolly game too, concentrate on CS at strt not on champ kill, not giving kill to darius is a win, dont stand n fight him u have to kite him, if u dont give him a kill he is useless mid n late game.”
The Almighty Urgot by ozmankaan | Urgot Player
ozmankaan says “there are three types of darius 1- the killable ones, you can kill them whenever you want 2- tough-ones, difficult to kill gives you tough time but still you can kill them 3- The unkillables, these phucking bastards are incarnation of death god himself, stay away from them, poke them, dont let them fool you coz when they are low on health they are most dangerous, use you jung help to kill them get the lead then solo them. ”

Split King says “Darius is tough. His kit is made to kill anything that comes into melee range. Do not try to fight him unless you know you can outplay him. It is easy to stay alive and farm however. Use q to activate passive when he uses decimate. You will take no damage and he will push lane. Use your taunt to disengage when he uses apprehend on you. Focus on buying early health, His true damage and armor penetration greatly reduces the effectiveness of armor”

STIERNACKENTYP says “This matchup is about how good the enemy Darius is. If he is a Darius OTP with flash/ghost u will have a very hard time especially after he gets Phage. He can perma all in u then. Try to poke and harrass as much as possible early but play very save and always keep a barrel up to escape. If he comes ahead, avoid every fight and get a GA soon.”

IvaoManeirao says “i'm only putting Darius on "major" since he can and will kill you in every single trade - however, this matchup is really simple if you take into account that your "E" animation is unstoppable akin to Ezreal's - that means that if he pulls you in you just need to anticipate that and E beforehand and he'll not be able to do anything at all. That along with the fact that you're ranged means that if you don't push your luck it should be a really chill farm-based lane; something that Darius never wants.”

You wanna bait him into pulling you and then you E as hes pulling you, Q cleanse the slow and stay on him to avoid his Q heal, if you get hit by his Q heal you instantly lose the trade and more than likely just killed yourself. But you keep doing that, hit 6 and pull the uno reverse card and DUNK HIS ass.”

Keep distance from him because he can pull you with his E. If he Q, stay close to him and use W to run away or stay out of it range, E him if he near the wall then Q him. Try to buy the ninja tabi as soon as possible because it can reduce the damage from his W a lot.”

BigManYam says “Darius will all in at level 2 or 3 and will harass you very early if you're within in his range, my advice is just play safe let wave push to you and wait for ganks to lower his health so he can't harass you while you farm. He will also freeze lane so you can't farm so play safe and be patient. ”

Noc7urnalz says “Not THAT much of a difference between aatrox and him. In the early game after reaching level 3 you can really go for really good trades vs him. Save your W For when he Q's you during the trade. Can be pretty hard to come back if you fall behind but vs Darius you can also go pretty safe if you feel like it. He has the advantage vs in the the mid game , but you win early/late.”
Nocturne /Bruiser/ Top by Noc7urnalz | Nocturne Player
LuxIsMyCrush says “Darius can be a pretty hard match-up to farm in, but as long as you play safe and accept you will lose some cs you will win the lane, usually leave him to push you and farm under turret, while poke him with Q every ocassion. Also rush luden's echo as it will increase your poke and give a lot of sustain (do lost chapter first if possible), after your luden is done you should be able to Q him to death, be always ready for a flash auto q ignite play to finish him if he do a mistake. ALWAYS TRY TO KEEP DISTANCE OF HIM, if you try to use bascis for trade there is a high chance that he will be able to grab you with his E and then do his combo on you, that is why i recommand you to poke only with Q, also you can use W to chase or disenage him, but there is again a small chance that he will be able to play around any extended poke.”
Teemo serious guide [10.2] by LuxIsMyCrush | Teemo Player
Defensivity1 says “Darius, a huge threath before level 6, always let him push you in under tower and give up all cs necessary to not get in to a trade with him, against darius the conqueror page is recommanded at level 6 you can look for an all in on him with your maiden, and if the opportunity arises poke him down with your ghouls during laning phase, tell your jungeler to not gank you before 6 as you cant 2v1 him before 6 and he can heal off of both of you with his q, turning the lane in to a blood bath for the rest of the game.”

Quezel says “Heavy skill matchup play early game VERY safe try to farm with q at max range without pushing the wave and ideally poke him while you farm after 6 and seekers you can start winning fights unless darius stacks MR make sure you don't give him q heals or its significantly harder to win try to stand on top of him to make this easier although a good darius will be able to use e and w to guarantee a q your shield completely nullifies his level 1 ult but after level 11 it becomes much harder to 1v1 him without a lead if you fall behind this lane becomes impossible so try to be as cautious as you can.”

ProgettoYorick says “Everyone is afraid of darius, his passive is DEVASTANT, hit him every now and then with the usual "combo". During level 6 you will make the difference. Advice from OTP: Give priority to the Ninja tabbi, they will help you a lot during the lane phase, try to block it with the E, closing it with the W. During that phase try to hit it with the Q and moving away a little so as not to make them recover their lives thanks to its Q.”

ThisIsJustSad says “1. W his pull or his slow. It doesn't matter which, both are just as good. If you do that, you will always win a fight against a Darius post level 3 if you also Q his q. 2. You can W Darius R, but usually it's more worth to use W earlier to slow his attackspeed and slow his stacking process.”
Xelaadryth says “Auto-attack kite from outside his Q range if possible, and force him to last-hit with Q to avoid taking harass. Your auto range is only slightly better than his pull range, so if you have low ping you can cancel your auto if he moves forward. Don't be too afraid though; if you get pulled in by his Apprehend, save your E since you'll get hit by his slow. Point-blank him with a Q auto, and as soon as the slow wears off tag him with an E and you're out. W at any point during the trade, and once you're out of range, follow up with repeated auto-attacks; his gap-close is gone. Just don't get tipper'ed by his Q or the bleed will really hurt.”

However, it makes it very predictable what he wants to do, so just stay out of his E range and you'll be fine. The lane will begin reversing in your favor once you get range at lvl 6. Be wary if he has Ghost. If you are overpushed, he can simply run you over with Ghost and no amount of slows and speed ups from Q/W will save you.”

Lasoor says “[Top] Yorick and Darius are very closely matched. Yorick is considered a counter to Darius, however that doesn't make the match up easy. It is actually one of the hardest match ups Yorick gets in top lane, despite his advantage, because of how Darius players build and how a Darius main plays. Once Darius gets a grip on you all you can hope to do is run before you are killed. You can't out trade him at melee range, you will lose especially if Darius has his ultimate. The way to counter Darius is to kite him and push him out of lane with your mist, maiden, and ghouls. Once he is low enough you can look for opportunities to trap him and finish him off. Always go in-and-out with your Q to burst him down, never sit there auto attackin him. You win if he can't build enough stacks on you. Keep in mind rushing high health items in ideal for this match up as Darius does a lot of true damage.”
Mr. Nyahr says “It's pretty easy for you to stay completely out of his range if you play smart. If you don't get pulled, you're fine. ”

ryzetrox says “You lose level 1, but you win level 2,3,4 and 5. Whoever gets the first kill wins the lane. Exe calling not really necessary if you are a competent kled. You can deny his healing with your E and Q if he times his Q badly.”
JuiceMoose says “His Ult will decimate you if he get stacks, don't let him auto you in trades. His Q lifesteals, so be careful about getting close when he has it. ”
sauronkaiser says “Really depends the player. Play safe in early game. If you want to engage, be sure that he cant hit his Q and you should win, but dont get confident. In late hes usually easy to take down if you hit E while your pets are around you, since he needs to poke a bit to get his passive and your wall cant be destroyed easily at that point, allowing you to quickly all in and kill him.”
Generally Break says “If he doesn't run ghost and phase rush this is basically your easiest matchup. If he does run both, be very careful. Take Glacial Augment. Hold your vault until he uses his pull. If he ever ghosts just disengage. Try to never let him auto you.”

Asothin says “He is a strong early game champion however if you can kite and poke him well without getting grabbed you will be able to beat him. Frozen Heart is very useful on him. Since his recent change he is quite a particular threat and avoiding getting into melee range with him is quite crucial.”
Revert Urgot. by Asothin | Urgot Player
yetusek says “Lethal Tempo Runes. Ignite + Flash OR Ghost + Flash. Long sword refillable potion start. Darius has very strong all in trades and his passive when stacked 5 times (stacks every auto attack and when he hits his q on the outer edge and his ultimate) gives him a lot of attack damage and does damage over time to you. Darius can use multiple keystones, starting items, and starting abilities. Darius with Q start is strong for early clear to get level 2 first, Darius with W start will look to take trades with you when you walk up for minions. Biggest thing to pay attention is they keystone + summoner spells. Ghost+Flash darius with conqueror has extremely good all in and if you are caught too far in the lane with a pull he can usually burn your summoners and then kill you as well. If this darius pulls you at a bad time for you, your best hope is to turn on him and all in and pray for crits. TP + Flash Darius with aftershock can be abused early if you take ignite, whether he starts q or w is irrelevant because your allin can be stronger then his so look to build fury and get level 2 first and all in him. Ignite + Flash darius with conqueror you basically just let him push you in and only farm don't trade. This is the strongest early game setup on darius to punish early but it falls off later since he can't kite you as well without ghost. The darius matchup in general is a lot about punishing cooldowns on his q and finding spots to take short trades with an auto attack + spin out without being forced into an all in by being pulled. Tryndamere does outscale this matchup in the mid-late game 1v1, but can be hard to dive him 100-0 so if you find yourself in that situation where he is just sitting under turret, then push him in and look for opportunities to outrotate him with your superior out of combat mobility and flank his team.”

Hamstertamer says “Very tough early game, and still slightly favors him at level 6 if you choose to fight him even though your ult is better than his. You can't do much to avoid his pull, you can do short trades and slow him to disengage but you won't dodge his Q. Let him push, and farm under tower. If he freezes the lane, break it with E. You outscale him hard if you build HP and armor, but you won't do much if you can't farm since you can't go near the guy without getting into a fight. Call for early ganks, the best counter to Darius is to gank Darius. Going ignite is IMO the best way to win this lane, since it will shift the ulti vs ulti fight in your favor and it gives you a raw power advantage since he usually runs ghost. That, or just ban him.”

litboijustinx says “Darius is one of the easiest champions to lane against as a Jayce. If you go Phase Rush against him, there is no way he'll be able to kill you (unless you get hooked).

Then you have 4-5 sec. to go in for a quick trade and get out before you lose too much HP because of his passive. If you don't manage to kill him before level 6, try harassing him with nados and when he gets below 40% HP, you can go for the kill. Also he will probably try to zone you away from the minions so if you are in danger of losing the trade, just stay within the XP range of the minions and wait for the wave to push to you. ”

Jnewbringspain says “Most people hate playing against Darius, but I find this matchup to be very winnable. The important thing to do is bait his decimate and avoid it. This will allow you to farm a bit without much danger. Always back off if you end up with a lot of hemorrhage stacks. Later in the game, you need to stay very close when he uses decimate. If you stay inside it, it does practically no damage and he won't heal. A slight misstep in this matchup will likely leave you dead, so make sure you're comfortable with Jax if picking into Darius.”

PandaSenpai101 says “If the Darius goes Ignite, it will be very difficult to win lane. You do have early kill pressure against Darius, levels 1 and 2, but his Ignite can make it very hard. You should parry his E, but it's better not to predict it. His W is an auto reset plus a bleed stack, so aim to parry that, as most Darius players do an E,W,Q combo. After 6, look to parry his R, but if not parry his W. This is a must to start Doran's Shield against his bleed. ”
Janitsu says “He is most likely going to be more useful for the enemy team, but you can shut him down pretty hard during the laning phase.”

Zestysquid says “Very obnoxious lane. Winnable, but obnoxious. If he get's a slight lead early game he'll probably kick your shit in the whole lane, so try not to die early on even if it means sacrificing lane pressure or even farm. It's difficult to get him to low health because of his heal, but the biggest threat is if he manages to hook you out of the safety of your boxes. Be careful about baiting by burning your Q. You can ult out of his ult, but be aware that it will reset his cooldown unless he ults your clone so get the hell out of there after you do.”

best teemo says “Start: Doran ring, armor runes. How he will try to trade against you: Darius will try to pull you then hit your with the edge of his bladed q, then auto w to slow you and auto you to death How to win trades pre6: max e, your goal here is to slowly get him to half hp so that he isn't able to all in you, pre6 if darius is half hp or lower and he grabs you, you can kill him with ignite. the hard part is getting him to half hp without losing your hp, which is easy when you know what to do, so this is how you do it: lvl 1 is the only time that you can poke hard with your e so use that opportunity, poke him a lot lvl 1 but becareful not to get in range of his q, so poke, then walk back, then poke again. after lvl 1, your q is the only thing that you can poke safely, so keep poking with your q on cooldown, but every time darius tries to kill a minion, that's when you poke with your e at a distance, darius won't grab you if he's focused on killing a minion, just poke with e once then walk back. you will know that darius is trying to kill a minion by looking at whenever your minions are about to die, if darius is walking up to that minion, that's when u know he is about to kill a minion, pay attention to his movements, you can kinda tell when he wants to grab you or when he wants to kill a minion. again, your goal is to get darius to half hp without losing hp, after that you can even let yourself get grabbed and kill him, or you can keep playing it smart until he dies. when darius all ins you, if you can dodge his q, you'll dodge a lot of his damage. If you're caught in his e and are able to die, flashing out of his q then poking him will give you more confidence in the match up and you'll learn when you can outdamage him.”

He can pull you with his E out of your Q, which cancels it, can sustain almost indefinitely in lane off of you with his Q, and his passive basically makes him almost impossible to 1v1 unless you can burst him down within approximately 3 seconds.

BubbaStudmuffin says “Darius is basically free kills for you and here is why. 1) You both benefit from long fights but you just do it better. He wants to hit you multiple times to get max stacks for his bleed and then ult you. Thats fine tho, as he is hitting you for bleed stacks and what he thinks will be a KILLER ULT you will be building up your W's shield passive. When you are a good ways into your 1 v 1 just pop your W. He will ult and it wont kill you. Then just finish him off. 2) His "bonus" bleed damage from long fights doesnt give him the edge in the fight that he is use to. While yes you will be taking bleed damage from a long fight, he will be taking Magic Damage from your passive circle so you two break even on that. 3) Positioning. To beat him this is the only thing you really need to worry about. First, bait out his pull, yours is longer so if you can bait his and use yours you'll have the upper hand. Secondly, just be sure not to get hit with the edge of his spin. That heal is nasty and you can easily avoid it. Either pull him in and stay close on him or keep some distance and poke him down with your Q. It out ranges his Q.”

DrMoneybags says “Darius can be very 50-50 depending on his skill, but a good Darius is scary(especially if he takes Ghost). After constant buffs to his kit, he pretty much beats most melee toplaners. Using E to enter his inner Q circle can help win all-ins, but he will still beat you in most extended trades. Just ask your jungler to gank early since he has no escape. I suggest taking Conqueror and ignite to snowball early and bypass his base-stats.”

His passive is very powerful in early and his kit is stronger then your on 1v1. For example if he know what he is doing he will never let you stun him with your q besause of his e. But if you gonna play safe under your tower and farm minions from range you will be ok. Because on late he suddenly becomes absolute trash. Really I think it's because of his lack cc and only one damaging range ability. So yeah if you not gonna feed him hard he will fade away. And don't worry to much even if he killed you 2 or 3 times it's not that much of a deal he still fades.”

Jomppe says “ [Top] Yorick and Darius are very closely matched. Yorick is considered a counter to Darius, however that doesn't make the match up easy. It is actually one of the hardest match ups Yorick gets in top lane, despite his advantage, because of how Darius players build and how a Darius main plays. Once Darius gets a grip on you all you can hope to do is run before you are killed. You can't out trade him at melee range, you will lose especially if Darius has his ultimate. The way to counter Darius is to kite him and push him out of lane with your mist, maiden, and ghouls. Once he is low enough you can look for opportunities to trap him and finish him off. Always go in-and-out with your Q to burst him down, never sit there auto attackin him. You win if he can't build enough stacks on you. Keep in mind rushing high health items in ideal for this match up as Darius does a lot of true damage.”

During early game, try to not take too much damage by E in to him whenever he Q. Then disengage with W. In lvl 1, most Darius will start W (Crippling Strike), and take Ghost. Don't fight him during lvl 1 or 2. Just do short trades and farm.”

The Lost Drawing says “Tu 'counter' mas basto y asqueroso, porque aunque el este 20 'súbditos' por debajo tuyo y ya haya muerto 3 a 5 veces, y tu tengas 1 a 3 'kills' tienes una probabilidad considerable de que te mate en un 1 vs 1 (mas aun si el lleva conquistador). Puedes jugar de 2 maneras seguras y 2 medias 'raras'. La 1° es con 'Aliento del Agonico'; 'farmea' con tu 'Q' para activar tu runa y pegale con tu pasiva, usa tu pasiva para el 'gordete'. La 2° con 'Inrrupción de Fase'; para correr cuando el te atrape con alguna de sus habilidades. La 3° con 'Aunmeto Glacial'; simplemente le quitas movilidad a el. La 4° 'Conquistador' ; la mas arriesgada pero la que te recompensa mas si le sacas ventaja de sus errores de posicionamiento y de vision. Como jugarle: >>> Juega Darius para conocer sus enfriamientos, su rango de básicos y habilidades, combos y acostumbrarte a su velocidad de ataque >>> En 1 vs 1 no ganas (a menos que seas una pistola o el malisimo) >>> Compra 'Poción de Corrupción' para poder responder a su empuje y si te engancha puedes responder un poco ya que este objeto te da una pasiva de 'Quemadura' que es daño mágico y te curas de paso >>> Espera los 'ganks' de tu 'jg' >>> Compra visión (Centinela de Control) para que cada vez que el se vaya a base y tengas tus jg cerca te haga un 'gankeo' beneficioso para ti y para el (ya si no lo hace y te quita el Centinela pues ni modo :,v) >>> No gastes tu TP de maneras tontas, con el puedes hacer ganar a tu 'botlane' o al menos si te baja mucha vida puedes regresar para no perder nivel >>> Trata de no perder experiencia pero el no perder oro es muy difícil >>> Tu 'E' no la gastes para pegarle a menos que ya lo tengas a un toque de vida. Tu 'E' es como la 'E' de Yasou, pudes esquivar daño de su 'Q' y de su 'E'. >>> Trata de hacerle gastar su 'Q' y su 'E', cuando lo haga pudes hacer intercambios limpios y sin riesgo (en este caso ya te debes de saber sus enfriamientos >>> ERES 1 VS 3; Los 'jg' de tu equipo rara vez 'gankean' a un Darius (es altamente recomendable un gank antes del nivel 6 o se hace una doble), los 'jg' enemigos hacen 1 o 2 'ganks' para ponerlo mas fuerte contra ti, si mueres pierdes la linea automáticamente (esto solo en caso de que sean 'main' Darius)”

Dont go for all out fights when close to even health unless you are sure you can win.”

qParOff says “All the matcups depend on how you play, If you play good you win all matchups, just farm until you have R and phage then play a little more aggresive if your laner tries to go for farm or lasthits, try to not get very poked or at least heal with your q when you do so.Late game you have 5k+ HP and A LOT of dmg with your passive stacked. In fights make sure you stack your passive on someone close to you then transfer it to everyone possible, always look at your MAX DMG from your R so you know when to R or not. In chases try to kite with your q so you heal, if you are low dont worry you have last stand (more dmg while being low hp) so try your best to kite with Q and outplay them.”

E61K says “In my honest opinion there is no match-up Darius cannot beat. If You take the right precautions, go for the right Runes and Summoner Spells, You're clean with your mechanics, itemize correctly and You have the game knowledge You have the potential to beat every single champion as Darius. At the end of the day Darius is about stat-checking people and destroying them with a superior output of damage. When it comes to damage Darius is on top of the ladder of the champions who have the highest potential damage outputs in the entire game thanks to Noxian Might and his general kit.”
SwiftOblivion says “Strengths: Extended Trades, Tanky, Sustain. Weaknesses: Low Mobility, Out-scaled. Start Doran’s Blade and play aggressive. You have complete agency over how the lane plays out. He lacks the mobility to catch you unless he takes Ghost or Phase Rush so it’s all dependent on your spacing and how you approach the matchup. Bully him by using your passive movement speed to your advantage by taking short trades and poking him down. When he Q's, decide whether to run outside of its range or to step closer to not take the brunt of his damage. If you get far enough away, disengage far enough from his pull, if you step inside close to him, start attacking to get some damage off at least in the early game. Use your Riposte primarily for negating his W or an auto attack because the slow and damage on his W and the passive stacking are the biggest threats to you in the early game. When going for trades, typically don’t let him get more than 3 passive stacks on you, at the most 4 when prepping for an All-in. His ultimate is also negated by your W so keep that in mind. Lastly, if you Riposte his Q, although not recommended, if he hits you with the blade, he still heals and procs effects such as Phase rush even though you take no damage from it.”

Miracle Matter says “WARNING: NEVER WALK PAST THE FIRST BUSH AT LEVEL 1 until he reveals himself. Most Dariuses will sit in the bush and wait for you to walk forward. If you've avoided that cheese, congratulations: you win the lane. Zilean top hard-counters Darius. Just don't ever let him close enough to pull you, and you can consistently harass him (and deny his Ulti.) Don't be overconfident. Good Dariuses will rush Mercs or Swifties and Ghost/Flash you down repeatedly. Don't let him anywhere near you unless your double-bomb is up in order to stun him and escape.”

drunken hunter says “Darius is very strong against Rengar, because he got the auto hits with extra bleeding dmg already in lvl 1. Darius is a lane bully who doesnt need much mana for his abilities, he is very tanky and his (Q) with low cd heals him for every single champion (from his enemy team) in his range. My tipp: do never try long trades, he will do every thing to get his 5 bleeding stacks on you - he will pull you, he will slow you, and if you have the 5-hits-mark over your head Darius will use his ult and deal true dmg and you will get more dmg by the bleeding stacks. Darius got only one good thing - he has no escape. Wait for your jungler to gank and kill him.”

TheNecromancerr says “Like for the most champions, it's scary matchup, but also very winnable. If you see him Q and you can't dodge it, Q on him so you don't get stack of his passive and makes him heal.

E61K says “This lane used to be easier but the buffs to Darius made it harder again. Darius is a Top Tier Toplaner right now, Yasuo isn't. The way you win against Darius is juking the outer portion of his Q, by dashing into him and sticking close to him or dashing away at the right time. Rushing level 2 before him is also a great way to establish early game dominance. Once you have done that you will win the 1v1. As easy as that sounds, you can still fuck up. If he snowballs on you get ready to get absolutely wrecked. Unless you get jungle help after he snowballs on you. But even then you will still probably get 1v2'd if he is good. Juke his outer Q at all cost or back off right away if you eat the outer portion of the Q. Invest into some health and armor as the game progresses or get ready to get instantly one shot when he gets his stacks. I recommend starting Doran's Blade and going straight for PD into Mallet into IE. Darius can't duel you late game if you itemize correctly. The longer the game goes on the less of a chance he has to win in a 1v1 against you. Darius can afford to make more mistakes in this lane. Consider building BORK. Don't fuck up or it will be highly unlikely that you will come back into the game. Once you're down in lane you will stay down.”
undeadsoldiers says “Darius - Conqueror Early items (in order) - Phage, Boots, Tiamat - NO all in lvl 1-2 (even if passive stacked) - Play very safe in lane (avoid getting too close to his pull range) - ONLY trade when his abilities on cooldown (keep it short; only when passive stacked) - It’s okay to give him space and farm under tower - DON’T all in alone until Trinity AND level or health lead - Dodge his spin with your Q - He can pull you out of your Q (wait until it’s on cooldown to engage) - Ult cooldown: 120/100/80 ”

LivesforOnlyOne says “One of those rare matchups where parrying the big damaging ability/cc isn't an option most of the time. Very, very, very short trades my friend, similar to how Fiora might dance around a brute like Darius in reality. Run Grasp, and play around his ranges and cooldowns. If you don't know his ranges go learn them, Darius is to top lane what hazings are to college frats. Bait out Q's and if his W and especially his pull are down trade into it. Do this about 50 times and chip away at an advantage. If you mess up and he pulls you don't wait for him to get 5 stacks and his ult to Riposte, he'll kill you just running you down with autos just fine, so Riposte and Q away after a pull, denying his slows. You heavily outscale with a few items unless he walks up to you with 5 stacks at the ready. The most patience testing matchup imo. One mistake can spell your death even with flash. Care.”

OrangeBeard says “He has a very good engage with his e, bait it out and try to fight him when you have either an item advantage of level advantage, because your e does alot more damage thank you think, also it speeds you up and slows him down to make it harder for him to hit his q on you.”

CaioOP1985 says “Darius is a serious nightmare when playing Nasus, with you being extremely weak in the early game. He can pull you to him, negate your armor and heal a ton of health back, so avoid engaging with him as much as possible, ask your jungle for ganks as he is quite immobile and play close to your tower to avoid being taken out.”
Nasus, God of the Late Game by CaioOP1985 | Nasus Player
Ashnard says “An interesting matchup, Darius is pretty immobile but can kill you pretty easily if you mess up. Keep in mind his pull repositions your q, so keep your distance until you have 3rd one up. You can beat him at post 6 all ins if he has to waste his ult on revive and he's not tanky enough to survive multiple Q combos, so poke him down before going for the all-in.”
