You can't just look at the stats and say you can kite Darius. The attack animation on his Apprehend is instant, can be used while moving and is indistinguishable from his basic attacks. This greatly extends his effective range. Most ranged AD carries can't kite Darius.

Ashe, who is probably the best kiter in the game, can kite him, but even with Ashe, the positioning is tricky because his Apprehend is not blocked by minions but Volley is. Kog'maw can handle Darius fairly easily - 4 long range abilities, armor reduction, damage over time, and an ult with a 1 second CD. But neither Ashe or Kog are not really a first choice solo-tops.

Surprisingly a decent leblanc can go toe to toe with him solo top. Its unconventional, yes, but with burst and escape mechanisms she is a surprisingly viable choice.

It's a step in the right direction, but to affectively counter Darius through the ability to survive you need Armor/MR/Health. His typicaly abilities you need armor, his passive you need MR, and his ult you need flat health. Personally, the extra health will probably help more then armor when it comes to early laning.

Build HP and a little MR.

He can no longer harass you with DoT. If you get a little extra HP5 you can out sustain him with almost any top in game.
