I played a ranked game before work this morning and found myself having to top lane, which I almost never get to do in ranked and only do infrequently in normals.

I took Gangplank because I figured I could poke-harass Darius and abuse his lack of gap closers. Careful wave control kept him overextended for a bit but after a few ganks he backed off and forced the wave to better territory. In trades his bleed damage hit a lot more than my Parrley harass (plus getting into Parrley range made me vulnerable to Darius' pull and swipe), and the only reason I didn't flat out lose the lane was my awesome jungler ganking and carrying my lane. Darius proceeded to be a much stronger presence in teamfights than me.

So, curious from people who toplane more than me, what is a good Darius counter, either in lane or in teamfights? His free damage was so strong, while as GP I had to build damage or contribute nothing to fights.

I've heard Jayce is pretty good.

No experience with it though.

Yorick, bait Darius' Q, dodge it, then spam all your ghouls on him. You'll out sustain him easy.
