Today you will learn how to play or counter one of the Tops with more sustain of League of Legends; for those who do not know that is «sustain», refers to the ability of a character to resist. Whether it’s for his ulti, CC or Waveclear.
Aatrox is a champion who can stay in line as long as he needs; without the need to return to base thanks to his «W», which allows him to clear the waves quickly and at the same time damage his enemies, so bearing this in mind do not try to attack him from the place where the minions are, to prevent him from damaging you at the same time he clears the wave.
Aatrox counter champions
With these champions you will have a noticeable advantage when facing Aatrox; of course you must take into account your skills with these champions, because some summoners who dominate this character already know some techniques of how to play even with disadvantages; although this is seen little especially in low leagues like gold down.
Jax has one of the most powerful abilities against melee characters called the «E» called «counter attack» and as the name implies, Jax avoids all the damage a character can do to him to return him and stun him.
Another character extremely annoying for Aatrox «and for most players» is the hated badger Teemo, which has 2 skills that make this powerful champion of the Top line useless, the first is his «Q» known as «blinding dart» which causes damage to the enemy character, but not only this also blinds him by preventing him from hitting his target and can heal properly due to the poison.
Also, he possesses his passive skill «E» called «toxic shot» which causes a reduced time damage to all enemies damaged by this badger, something that will force any Aatrox to play defensively and in many cases prevent these pharming.
This champion is an innate duelist with the ability to humiliate many Top characters and Aatrox is no exception, however it is good to note that it is necessary to know how to use the champion, as it is not as simple as Teemo or Jax. Because you need reflexes and to use the Fiora mechanics correctly.
The combination of his passive «duelist dance» and «onslaught» may generate a lot of damage that not even the Aatrox sustain supports, but it is important to note that you will need to play your «W» the «replica» well to win all the exchanges you propose.
Another Top that can do a versus to Aatrox and easily win is Pantheon, which basically has an anti Aatrox kit. Its passive «protection shield» which avoids the physical attacks of any character; together with its «W» the «Zeonia Protection» which stuns the enemy will allow you to win any exchange with the one you have against this character.
It is important to note that at the beginning of the game; it takes a lot of mana to humiliate the enemy Aatrox, so it is advisable to start with the «corruption potion» which will not only help you regenerate your mana; it will also burn your enemies.
Items that counter Aatrox
Aatrox is a champion who depends a lot on his attacks; to inflict damage in order to survive, so if you want an advantage over this champion, you could have it with the following items:
Presage of Randuin
The omen of Raduim; it is an object that will give you the necessary life for your confrontations, but it will also help you to slow down the attack speed of Aatrox, which will give you more advantage than necessary.
Heart of ice
The ice heart also slows down, which will prevent an Aatrox from attacking at maximum speed, but you should know when to choose this item or the randuin, as life or mana can be decisive in your game.
The Call of the Executioner
If you feel that the rival aatrox heals too much and your character is of physical damage, the so-called executioner is your best choice, as you will be able to inflict «serious wounds» which will greatly diminish the healing of the character.
The executioner call is the option for your AD character; but if you are an AP character, theMorellonomicón will be a better option. Which will give you attributes for characters with magic damage and causing the same «serious injury» effect
The best spells against an Atrox
Either of these two options are good at choosing; the ignite will cause damage and prevent the Aatrox from regenerating its life; although exhaustion can also be a good option; if you consider that you can be more useful against the composition of the enemy team.
