Best Aatrox Runes
If you are battling a varied enemy team comp, you should strongly consider getting Aatrox the Conqueror, Triumph, Legend: Alacrity, Last Stand, Conditioning, and Revitalize runes.

Yet, if you are fighting a more single focused enemy team comp, such as an AD heavy or a CC heavy team, you should instead glance down and to the right to get the best Aatrox runes to defeat your particular combination of foes.
