Q: 14-6 (Quinn's E 12-8 seconds)

W: 26-14

E: 9-5

R: 120-80

Q range: Q1 650, Q2 525, Q3 225 (Quinn's E range pushes you back 525 range)

Aatrox's Skill Max Order: Q → E → W


Level 1: You hard win the trade. Hide in top bush to Auto-E-Auto instantly, and then back off when he does his Q trade. Otherwise, When he Qs, save vault to use after Aatrox's 2nd Q (before his 3rd Q)

Level 2: He will start E most likely. Be careful of his E-Q poke (it has long range) If he misses, instantly engage & trade.

Level 3: When he levels W, this is his win con. Stand behind minions to avoid his W. If you get caught in W, Auto-E-Auto to proc phase rush, then run out of his W SIDEWAYS to escape.

Level 6: I like Phase rush because you can outrun Aatrox with ease. When he Rs, I instantly proc Phase Rush and he can't catch you. Auto-Q-Auto is the ideal way to proc it if possible so you save E for his W if he hits it on you. Otherwise, Try to Blind Juke him by throwing Q and then trying to change direction while he's blinded to buy time as you try to run away!

What To Do

Level 1 you can use your vault aggressively on him after he uses his second Q to prevent him from punishing you.

Aatrox Q1 & Q2 are long range, and will interupt vault often, but his Q3 is very short, and our vault will put us in safe distance when he's using it against us.

Level 3 onwards be careful for his E->Q combo, and also his W (the ability that brings you to the centre of his box).

Early game, Aatrox will be able to trap you in his W if he lands it on you, but Quinn hard claps Aatrox when you get your W maxed out.

Essentially, if Aatrox Ws you, hit him with a harrier proc to use the increased MS to run out, OR you could also vault out of it! A lot of times you can vault to aatrox if he's far out from his W, and you will escape effortlessly.

PTA is good for lane domination, but if you run it, be careful of his W.

Stand behind minions to prevent his W engage.

If he Rs you, Instantly AA-E-AA and run away.

If you have PR, even if he lands W on you, you get slow resistance to side step it easily.

Ignite early during his R to reduce healing.

If Aatrox misses E-Q poke in lane, instantly run him down for a very big trade.

His W is a 26 second Cd, so if he ever uses it, you have a huge window to dominate lane.
