Aatrox is one of the champions and a playable character in the latest League of Legends (LoL) game mode Arena / 2v2v2v2. In this guide, we’ll share some helpful tips on the best Augments to use, the best items to purchase, and the ideal duo compositions to play.

Aatrox Starting Items in Arena

Guardian's Blade: If anyone wants to do quick physical damage then use Haste and AD.

Mythic Items

Eclipse: This item's increased damage and shield make it incredibly effective for winning 1v1 battles.

Eviscerator: This mythic item is excellent for shortening your spell CD and surprises your opponent with a powerful healing burst when you are low on HP.

Standard build


Death's Dance

Black Cleaver

AD and cooldown reduction are two important attributes that Aatrox heavily benefits from. Both of these stats are given by Eclipse and Black Cleaver, while Dance of Death prevents one-hit death.

Other Endgame Options

Serylda's Grudge

Maw of Malmortius

Ravenous Hydra

Sterak's Gage

We'll keep looking for AD and CDR choices with our items and find some interesting new stats. The slowing effect of Serylda's Grudge helps armor penetration. The Ravenous Hydra provides sustain, the Maw of Malmortius offers magic resistance, and the Sterak's Gage is a further alternative to prevent getting one shot.

Choice of Boots

Mercury's Treads: Interesting against a lot of control. Keep in mind, though, that tenacity is useless against knock-ups.

Plated Steelcaps: These boots are excellent against physical damage, especially if it comes from basic attacks.

Ionian Boots of Lucidity: These boots are perfect if your champion is in dire need of haste early in the game.

Aatrox's best support Augments in Arena

Depending on the circumstance, it is important to be flexible in your choice of Augments. Aatrox is a melee AD caster, so gets a lot of boosts. You can give him Movement, Spell Damage increases that are based on physical damage or attack damage.

AA Based Damage: These boosts improve your damage if based on your basic attacks.
