How to play Varus


Varus is a dragon lane champion. He uses a mix of attack damage with auto-attacks and magic damage with his poke against the enemies to kill them. He also has great crowd control to help the team. He is not the best in the early game because he doesn't do a lot of damage and has very short range. The later the game goes and the more items he gets, the stronger he becomes. This is because of his really fast attack speed, great poke from Piercing Arrow, and crowd control potential from Chain of Corruption.

Varus Build Breakdown


Essence Reaver
Youmuu's Ghostblade
Edge of Night
Serylda's Grudge
Riftmaker
Gluttonous Greaves - Stasis

Varus does really well when building attack damage and lethality items to deal a lot of damage with his poke from his Piercing Arrow. Essence Reaver is a great first item. The item gives Varus a lot of attack damage and the passive means Varus will be hurting a lot when using his abilities, especially Piercing Arrow. Youmuu's Ghostblade is another cheap and great item that gives Varus a lot of attack damage.


Onto the runes, we have:

Conqueror

Varus has many abilities, and his auto attacks that easily allow him to stack conqueror, which gives his auto attacks and abilities more damage.

Brutal

Brutal gives Varus's auto attacks more damage giving him a lot of power in the early game to try and get an advantage to carry his team.

Coup de Grace

When enemy champions are low on health, Varus can deal bonus damage. This will help Varus kill enemies faster with his auto attack and abilities. Giant Slayer is another good option when playing against Bruisers and Tanks that build a lot of health.

Legend: Alacrity

Alacrity gives Varus attack speed which helps him stack his Blighted Quiver stacks faster to do more damage. Legend: Tenacity is another excellent option when playing against champions that have Crowd Control.

Bone Plating

As a marksman, Varus will always be the main focus for the enemy team to try and take down. However, Bone Plating will help Varus take reduced damage from the first three instances of damage which can save his life.

Flash
Exhaust

For summoner spells, Flash is a must on most champions. It's a great spell to get you out of a bad situation or allows you to flash into the team to get the killing blow. The go-to 2nd spell is Exhaust. Varus doesn't have a lot of mobility so when enemy champions step too close you can use Exhaust to help win fights.

Early Game


Varus is not the best champion in the early game. You can use your Piercing Arrow at distance to help clear minions and/or use it to poke down the enemy. You want to stay back and play as passive as you can to try not to die so you can farm up to get your core items. Once you reach level 5 and have access to Chain of Corruption, you can look for an opportunity to engage and try to get a kill.

Late Game


Once you reach the late game and have your core items, this is where Varus can use his poke to kill the whole team. It's always best as an AD Carry to stay grouped with your team. You want to stay as far back from the enemies as possible and allow your front line to go in front of you to tank all the damage. Most of the time you are the main damage output, so if you are caught by yourself and die then your team is in really big trouble, so make sure you stay safe at all times.

Conclusion


Varus is a great starter champion if you want to give Dragon Lane a try! His abilities are really simple and he has a great play style for beginners that are just starting to play Wild Rift. If you're looking for a champion that can stay back and use abilities to poke down the enemies and an ultimate to crowd control and win the game then Varus is the right champion for you.
