Unlike his brother Darius, victory in battle was never enough for Draven. He craved recognition, acclaim, and glory. He first sought greatness in the Noxian military, but his flair for the dramatic went severely underappreciated. Thirsting for a method to share "Draven" with the world, he turned his attention to the prison system. There he carved out the celebrity he desired by turning the tedious affair of executions into a premiere spectacle.
At Draven's first execution, he shocked onlookers when he ordered the doomed prisoner to run for dear life. Just before the man managed to flee from sight, Draven brought him down with a flawless throw off his axe. Soon, all Draven's executions became a gauntlet through which Noxian prisoners raced for a final chance at life. He used this trial as his own personal stage and turned executions into a leading form of entertainment. He rallied onlookers into a frenzy, while desperate prisoners scrambled to evade him. They never succeeded. Rejecting the solemn, black uniforms of Noxian executioners, Draven donned bright outfits and developed flashy signature moves to distinguish himself. Crowds flocked to see Draven in action, and tales of his performances spread quickly. As his popularity grew, so did his already-inflated ego. He belonged at the centre of attention. Before long, the scope of his ambitions outgrew the population of Noxus. He decided that the glorious exploits of Draven should be put on display for the entire world.

- Basic Attack: Draven throws an axe at his opponent. Grants Adoration stacks with League of Draven.
- League of Draven: When Draven catches a Spinning Axe, kills a minion or monster or destroys a turret, he gains a stack of Adoration. When Draven kills an enemy champion, he consumes all of his Adoration stacks and gains gold. Draven loses half of his Adoration stacks upon death.
- Spinning Axe: Draven starts spinning his axe, causing his next basic attack within 5.8 seconds to deal bonus physical damage. The spinning axe ricochets off the target high up into the air, landing 2 seconds later at a location determined by Draven's current movement direction and speed. If Draven catches it, Spinning Axe is refreshed on his next basic attack. Draven can hold up to two Spinning Axes in his hands at once.
- Blood Rush: Draven gains bonus movement speed which decays rapidly over 1.5 seconds and bonus attack speed for 3 seconds. Catching a Spinning Axe resets Blood Rush's cooldown.
- Stand Aside: Draven throws his axes in a line, knocking aside enemies hit, slowing them for 2 seconds and dealing them physical damage.
- Whirling Death: Draven hurls two massive axes in the target direction, dealing physical damage to every enemy struck. Upon reaching the edge of the map, striking an enemy champion or upon the reactivation of Whirling Death, the axes slowly come to a stop before changing direction and returning to Draven, dealing the same damage to every enemy struck on the way back. Whirling Death deals 8% less damage for each unit hit, down to a minimum of 40% damage. This damage reduction resets when the axes reverse direction.
- Wicked Blades: Draven deals bonus physical damage over 4 seconds every time he lands a Spinning Axe or a critical strike. Successive applications will carry over any remaining damage.
