    "I admit I'm not really very good at this game. I think I just don't put enough time into it -- at least not compared to some of the friends I play with from time to time. That said, this works. I'm embarrassed to say how often I need to be saved when my health gets very low. "

    "I wouldn't necessarily say that Zed is the BEST counter to Darius, but it's definitely a suitable option. His functions as a character can be limited at times, but he's proved to be a reliable counter at various points. I'd say give him a try and see for yourself. Preferences are subjective, so you may actually love Zed. "

    "Teemo- The Swift Scout seemingly appears to be innocent- with non threatening looks. However, don't let Teemo fool you as he is powerful and bring the strongest to its knees, accompanying a living blade who will drink the blood of any slain enemy."

    "In League of Legends, the website covers why Jayce is a good counter and also what abilities are at his disposal. We're introduced to all his abilities and how they can counter other heroes on the battlefield. Jayce is thus a top pick to counter Darius."

The bio gives lots of good detail as to powers, individual characteristics and weaknesses for anyone needing to know more about what they might use this character for. Good site that is well laid out with lots of charts for info."

    "It can be difficult to counter Darius with Jax. I feel that there are several better options. Jax can be a great character to use if you are smart about it. The best way to counter Darius using Jax is to wait for him to pull you and then counter attack. Try to keep trades short and quick."

    There is a world of perfect harmony, where all are part of the whole. The Monolith is the essence of all creation, and its denizens are but singular pieces of it.

    "A friend suggested I try Malphite - The Shard of the Monolith. I followed his suggestion and I'm pretty impressed. The only downfall I have experienced is my own timing, as Malphite is migrating most of its wikis to Gamepedia, a new host. Most of the wikis are read-only for now but this migration should only take a few days. "
