LoL Wild Rift: Darius Top Build Guide

Just picked up Darius in Wild Rift and looking for a few tips. Read on for our guide on the Hand of Noxus and you'll be dominating the enemy toplaner in not time at all.




Spirit Walker


Darius is one of the strongest early-game duellists in the game. We've opted for a set of extremely aggressive runes to help you tear down your opposing toplaner as soon as possible. Darius can charge up the Conqueror rune very quickly during a long, drawn-out trade. Brutal gives you a burst of offensive stats from as early as Level 1.

Spirit Walker, in green, allows you to resist slows, as Darius is incredibly vulnerable to being kited. In blue, Mastermind lets you snowball off of taking down towers, which won't be an issue at all, given how dominant Darius can be during the laning phase.


Here is the optimal skill order for Darius. Max out his abilities as outlined in the image below, making sure to level up his ultimate whenever you can.

Note: Depending on the matchup, it can be a good idea to pick up Crippling Strike from as early as Level 1 or 2.
