Varus is a strong lane opponent and very good team fighter. His poke is insane when he's fed, and his ult is massive crowd control when the enemy stacks up. He works well in most team comps but has problems with getting initiated on since he has no escapes. -Pros High CC Long ranged poke Lots of damage Can kill tanks pretty quickly due to his [img=skills/varus/w.png] -Cons No escape Attack speed steroid is limited to getting kills outside of lane

You basically want to last hit and hit people with [img=skills/varus/q.png] as much as possible. Force them into a bad spot and get the free [img=skills/varus/q.png] off. Once you hit 6 you can probably just use [img=skills/varus/r.png] onto them and kill them if it lands. The only counter play they can have is cleansing and getting out. Try to make sure that when you're aiming your [img=skills/varus/q.png] in the first few levels that you hit creeps as well as the enemy champion so that in the case that they dodge it you still push the lane. A trick I used for a while was getting a ward up on the enemy buffs and then sitting in the dragon/baron pits to snipe out their buff as they're doing it. All junglers never smited unless they didn't receive a leash from their teammates, resulting in a easy buff steal level one! It's a lot harder to do now though since they all smite the buff now. The only way it'll work is if they mis-calculate it or if they smite early. Start charging the arrow at around 750 life on the buff and then shoot about 50 above smiting range. If they mess up you'll get it. If they don't oh well, you tried!

Push waves with [img=skills/varus/q.png] and target squishies with it. Keep hitting the same target and they'll have to back for free objective control or a free teamfight win. You should have [img=items/the-bloodthirster.png][img=items/last-whisper.png] at this point while building up to your [img=items/infinity-edge.png]. Be careful around the enemy carries and jungler since you don't have an escape. Make sure to go to lanes where you can either farm easily and not die or beat the opponent 1v1. Push on them hard with [img=skills/varus/q.png] and take their turret.

You'll have your full build by this time or really close to it. Once you have reached the [img=items/phantom-dancer.png]/[img=items/statikk-shiv.png] you'll do insane damage to everybody. Poke down squishies!!!!!!! Stick with your team and group for objectives. You aren't good at split pushing so make sure you're almost never alone.

Try to shoot your [img=skills/varus/q.png] as much as you can before hand. Never ult a single target unless you're going to die to them. Always try to make the most out of your ult by ulting the enemy that you want to CC now, while the rest of the enemies are very close around him. Make sure even in the fight that you target the enemy carries with your [img=skills/varus/q.png] since it'll do the most damage to them and probably hit the people on you anyways.
