Blood Well

Passive

Whenever Aatrox uses an ability that costs health, he stores 100% of the health cost into his Blood Well. The maximum amount of health the Blood Well can store is equal to 30 + (45 x level). If Aatrox has not dealt or received damage in the last 5 seconds, his Blood Well will deplete at a rate of 2% per second.

Upon taking fatal damage, Blood Well activates and places Aatrox in stasis for 3 seconds. Over the stasis duration the Blood Well is emptied and Aatrox restores health equal to its contents plus 10.5 + (15.75 x level). Blood Well's activation has a static cooldown and is unaffected by cooldown reduction.

Also, Aatrox passively increases his attack speed by 1% for every 2% in the Blood Well(30/35/40/45/50/55% upgrades every 3 champion levels)

Counter Tips

Killing him when his resource bar is low will make him revive with much lower health.
If he builds full damage, focus him first.
Try to avoid his Dark Flight's center of impact to avoid getting knocked up.
Attack speed reduction items/skills are great against him as most of his damage comes from auto attacking.
