    This question might seem retarded but ... why would you not jungle Aatrox?

  • #17 Nevran

    He was able to jungle since the beginning. He is basically a Xin Xhao in gank potential, Knock up gap closer + Slow + Huge damage dealing. His first clear is normal, then because of his W, he substain well in it.

    I don't know what Riot want to make with his ult, but his Q/W/E are good, they just seem to have difficulty approching what his ult should be, we just come from:

    Heal bait ult with moderate damage

    to

    Strong damage input toward heal

    to

    Flat damage input scaling with AP

    If they just throw away the AP ratio or just add an AD ratio, it will be cool in my opinion.

    The main point of his ult are the steroids (AS and range), the dmg is nice, but not vital.

  • #18 Rispudding

    He is a sick jungler after the changes in 3.8 v5 giving him a lot of free AS when his blodwell is charged. He was slow early before this and needed to build as asap on him. With the free as he now clears much faster early (becoming a very, very fast jungler with  madreds/wriggles and spamming E and Q on CD) and his sustain is top level. Now he does not need to build AS so his gold requirment went down a lot. Jungling him I just built wriggles for damage and the rest tanky and still I was doing 2. most dmg on the team. Just be aware that he loses the bonus as from the well when it is on CD so having it on CD does not only affect your  survivability,but also clear and dmg. With well on CD he is quite meh as a jungler and the CD is long.

    His ganks are very good. More like J4(pre 6) then Xin I would say as he can jump over obstacles to make sneaky ganks, but he also needs to hit skillshots cc. Q (knockup part) and E are quite easy to dodge. The aoe knock up of Q is small, the range is moderate and it is channeled. E has a slow missile speed and at long range it is quite narrow. 

    What is insane with his ganks though is that he can turret dive at lvl 2-3 thanks to his passive

  • #23 LaughingBacchus

    So he's like a Xin Zhao who doesn't randomly press all buttons? That sounds good.

    How long is the CD on his Q by the way as I feel his ability to be a tanky jungler rises and falls with his Knockup Jump.

  • #24 BestRenektonNA

    I'm pretty certain he actually doesn't lose the bonus attack speed when it's on CD.  When your passive is on CD you still have a resource bar that charges, except that it's grey instead of red.

    You are probably right. Most of the time I was playing him his pool was not charging when it was on CD giving me the other impression, but this was probably just a bug. The tooltip states: "Blood Well's activation has a static cooldown and is unaffected by cooldown reduction." so the CD should only affect activation

    Umm those changes weren't really significant enough for you to be creaming your pants, but each to their own i guess?

    I suspect he is thinking about the patch 5  changes. Which were definitively enough to cream your pants

  • #7 scruftypufty

    great, now he doesn't scale what so ever, loser club waiting for you aatrox, i'm sure you'll enjoy a cup of tea with master yi

  • #11 exerior88

    ult attackspeed and attackspeed from stacked passive + w e and q have ad ratios.  I would call that scaling.

     

  • #21 Rispudding

    He scalles insanely with AS and on hits. With a BoTRK and some tanky items he deals tons of dmg while sustaining through almost everything forcing the other team to full team combo him to kill, and then i he revives. 

  • #3 GoingManMode

    hes an initiate teamfighter, i so fucking hate seeing people build this guy tank he has INSANE sustain, E to slow the enemy Q onto them, and go to work autoing nonstop NEVER STOP AUTOING use your w in damage mode to start till lower than 50% swap to heal mode for OMFG why isnt he dieing mode.

    I find the removal of his HP for ulti crap, cause now he lost his ulti-baiting potential, and on top of that now he lost his % HP ulti for an AP Scaling ulti, hes a fucking AS Life steal champ wtf would you build AP on him? Unless they give him atleast some form of minor AP scaling on atleast 1 other of his skills.

    Anyone know does his W proc spellvamp on the damage mode?

    Actually, building Nashor's and A.P. on him is stupidly fun. The E poke is hilarious.

  • #6 Rosilei

    His E has scaled decently with AP from the start.

  • #9 Overdunk9000

    Dude the flat damage is way better for early game and lower HP targets such as I dont know? the enemy carry's perhaps?. Also the more HP you build the faster your blood pool fills the more AS you get, so tank indirectly increases your damage. As for the AP scaling riot purpuosly puts AP scalings on AD champs to stop them from getting to much damage out of there abilltys while stlll allowing them to benefit from items such as sheen and baron buff

  • #12 RoakOriginal

    pantheon-like

  • #1 Killzerz4

    I love these Aatrox changes. The are pushing him to be a stupidly good split pusher, especially so with Hydra and the options for his build path are amazing. Randuins and Sunfire seem core on him with Merc Treads, but the other items can be a mix of stuff like Frozen Mallet, BotRK, Hydra, Last Whisper, Wit's End (allowing Ninja Tabi), and other fun itemization paths up. I am really liking him, he seems good in teamfights and an especially strong split pusher (wants to 1v1 people with the ultimate changes and Blood Well changes, and has easy ways to clear, AND has an escape with a long range slow on another ability to boot!).
