Usually, I am not one to scream "OP" right off the bat, but this champ definetely seems like it.
High sustain+Hard to kill, due to how easy it is to keep blood well up. Due to bloodprice/passive, his damage stays high even when mainly building tanky, especially if he ults. He's got a very good escape and a quick, long range dive - kind of like zac, only in better. Then he has the advantage of being manaless, making him a powerful laner.

So, a powerful ganker and duelist with lots of survivability, much pushing power, very much lane sustain that can build tanky without losing fatally much damage, quickly making him unkillable with a bit of hp stack. Well, better nerf Irelia~

If you happen to buy a Tear of the Goddess, will it charge when spamming his W? Because the cooldowns between the toggles are very short, right?


And what actual use would that have? Muramana does not work on champs that have no mana, and as Aatrox is -manaless- he neither has any mana, nor does he benefit from it even if he had some. What I'm wondering more about: does hiw w proc the sheen effect? It shouldn't, such as singed's q does not, but.... well. Still wondering.

btt: Yeah, he seems terribly strong, actually. I think we'll see him built more tanky ranther than the suggested offensive built, since he has great initiation and his toggle seems to provide decent damage combined with the ult and a full bloodwell even without going heavy on ad. Having BTORK and BT on him seems mandatory, but aside from that RO, Mallet and Spirit Visage seem like good options for high durability for me making him a real pain the backside.

Edit: Or hey - just build GA - for maximum frustration.

Sorry people, but In these spotlights all the champs look op. But in real life there no op champs only op players. I bet Udyr, Jax, Olaf and Elise beat the **** out of Aatrox. Stun and ignite and wave goodby to your so called op Aatrox.

i guess, he'll be like mordekaiser with an escape.he needs to push the lane for sustain, so freeze it. but since he has a good escape, it seems like a very strong early game, so i would guess, his late game scaling should be weak. on the other hand, phreak tells us, how atrox scroes a tripple kill without any effort...

i don't think, most of the champs are as op as they seem in champion spotlights, but these spotlights would be so much better, if they would tell us more often about weak points of an upcoming champ.
