Aatrox

Die and Be Forgotten

Patch: 7.24

WhyPress the Attack

Press the Attack allows Aatrox to take short trades for burst and exit to out-sustain his lane opponent. The expose damage also synergies well with his [W] empowered damage.

WhyLegend: Alacrity

As an auto attack focused carry top, more Attack Speed means more damage (and more healing with [W]).

In the case that you're picking into a team with a lot of hard CC, Tenacity is a good alternative option.

WhyCoup De Grace

Coup De Grace is a solid all-around damage rune choice, allowing you to out trade and sustain your lane opponent to keep them in kill range.

WhyIron Skin

Your rune choice here depends on your enemy laner and enemy team comp. If you're playing into an AP top (Rumble) take Mirror Shell instead.

The early bonus resists are quite efficient when paired with your natural healing.

WhyRevitalize

Revitalize synergizes well with the healing proc of Aatrox's [W] allowing you to sustain far more in extended lane trades and all-ins.
