Varus the big plays master!! Varus is a really strong ad champion. He reminds me of morgana nidalee and ezreal morphed into a godlike persian ad assassin. His Q is similar to a nidalee spear and an ezreal ult combined, since there is no lined-missile display for his Q, you have to get used to the speed at which it travels and become rather skilled with the aim of the arrow. I have landed Q's that have one shot below half HP champions very similar to a nidalee spear. [youtube][/youtube] [imgext=]

Flat AD Marks and Flat AD quints and your W allow for ezmode last hitting in lane, followed by Flat MR Glyphs and armor seals you are able to win 1v1 and 1v2 exchanges in lane.

[title][img=skills/varus/p.png] Passive: Living Vengeance[/title] [number]On kill or assist, Varus temporarily gains Attack Speed. This bonus is larger if the enemy is a champion.[/number] [title]Explanation: This skill is what allows you to take advantage of the Infinity edge Last Whisper combo until you are able to buy phantom dancer. Use his passive to farm jungle faster when your lane is pushed or to do quick combos on an enemy champion in lane.[/title] [title][img=skills/varus/q.png] Q: Piercing Arrow[/title] [number]Varus readies and then fires a powerful shot that gains extra range and damage the longer he spends preparing to fire. First Cast: Varus starts drawing back his next shot, gradually increasing its range and damage. Second Cast: Varus fires, dealing 10/43/77/110/143 (+) to 15/65/115/165/215 (+) physical damage, reduced by 15% per enemy hit (minimum 33%). While preparing to shoot Varus' Movement Speed is slowed by 20%. After 4 seconds, Piercing Arrow fails but refunds half its mana cost. Cost 70/75/80/85/90 Mana Range 925 [/number] [title]Explanation: The Menace's bread and butter try to aim this skillshot where your enemy is going to be not where he is, because it is now getting to the point where your enemy's will be ready to dodge so take and educated guess and let er' rip![/title] [title][img=skills/varus/w.png] W: Blighted Quiver[/title] [number]Varus' basic attacks deal bonus magic damage and apply Blight. Varus' other abilities detonate Blight, dealing magic damage based on the target's maximum health. Passive: Varus' basic attacks deal 10/14/18/22/26 (+0.25) bonus magic damage and apply Blight for 6 seconds (stacks 3 times). Varus' other abilities detonate Blight, dealing magic damage equal to 2/2.75/3.5/4.25/5% (+0.01%) of the target's maximum Health per stack (Max: 360 total damage vs Monsters). [/number] [title]Explanation: I have tried some shits and giggles on-hit builds to synergize with this skill with some success however I wont be posting the on-hit build anytime soon as it needs more testing.[/title] [title][img=skills/varus/e.png] E: Hail of Arrows[/title] [number]Varus fires a hail of arrows that deal physical damage and desecrate the ground. Desecrated ground slows enemies' Movement Speed and reduces their healing and regeneration. Varus fires a hail of arrows that deals 65/105/145/185/225 (+) physical damage and desecrates the ground for 4 seconds. Desecrated Ground slows enemy Movement Speed by 25/30/35/40/45% and reduces healing effects by 50%. Cost 80 Mana Range 925 [/number] [title]Explanation: Throw out a Q and this skill and you have your self a deadly combo gap closer. Max this skill second as it does quite a bit of damage at lvl 5[/title] [title][img=skills/varus/r.png] R: Chain of Corruption[/title] [number]Varus flings out a tendril of corruption that immobilizes the first enemy champion hit and then spreads towards nearby uninfected champions, immobilizing them too on contact. Varus flings out a tendril of corruption that deals 150/250/350 (+1) magic damage and immobilizes the first enemy champion hit for 2 seconds. The corruption then spreads towards nearby uninfected enemy champions, applying the same damage and immobilize if it reaches them. Cost 120 Mana Range 1200 [/number] [title]Explanation: Use his ultimate similar to Morganas ultimate 3 or more or it is also great when trying to escape if you get caught out of position.[/title]

[title][highlight]Laning as Varus, YOU ARE AN AD CARRY FARM!! FARM!!! FARM!!!![/highlight][/title] Early game Laning as Varus *even if you don't have the luxury of early kills proper farming can still grant you success late game* [.] Grab [img=skills/varus/q.png] first followed by [img=skills/varus/w.png] and of course [img=skills/varus/e.png] and [img=skills/varus/r.png] upon turning lvl 6. [.] When the enemy champion approaches to last-hit auto-attack 3 times to allow [img=skills/varus/w.png] to gain the maximum of 3 blight stacks. [.] Use [img=skills/varus/q.png] for maximum damage or [img=skills/varus/e.png] to activate blight stacks. (your ult can also be used to activate blight)
