Welcome to my own personal guides. So varus....sigh....a champion whos poke everyone hates. Someone who you never expect to burst you this much and when his Q comes flying and you see your HP bar drop harder than a new mixtape from Eminem then type in the all chat "wtf noob Q" is just flatout annoying. But some people embrace this monster of a poke champion and want to play him but how? Well here is my own personal guide in all legitimate playstyles for varus. More guides will come soon, and since this is my first guide, i will of course have some holes and mistakes in it. You are all free to critisize me but try to keep the insults down. thank you very much and i hope this exclusive guide can help you fulfill your dream of being cancer in the fields of justice! :D

Earlygame you should try to play it safe until you hit LVL3. Try to poke your enemy out of lane but beware as the minions can lower your Q damage. Before you have some points in it you want to farm the Creepwave down so your opponent receives less protection, resulting in more damage. Your Q can outrange the VISION of the enemy, so try to place a ward near his tower, but not too close or he will see the ward and farm it, then Poke from behind the mapfog. Unless your opponent is very mobile or has insane reflexes he will never see it coming. When you hit LVL6 be very wary of ganks. Your ult is your only tool for safety and if you miss it or waste it you WILL suffer inlane until its up again.

Midgame when you have 2-3 items and 2 skills maxed, you will want to do the same as in the lane. Poke Their squishies. if Skirmishes occur, try placing your E over the fighting ground. If they have high sustain the grievious wounds applied will give them a very hard time keeping up an extended fight. Ult whoever tries to escape and Cooperate with your Team to zone the enemy together to increae your Ults effectiveness since it can spread from one enemy to potentially all 4 others, granting you a 5 man stun. However the spread is heavily delayed so you will never accomplish it on your own.

lategame is where you will either carry or suffer. It is practically an hardened version of your midgame: Place your E over the battleground, Stun whoever is escaping OR their carry to burst him down with your Q and W passive effect. However note since your W deals percentage damage you will first want to AA their tank 3x and then use your E. Your W passive will be ecspecially of need for this stage of the fight since your Damage will not be very effective to anything even remotely tanky at this point. Alternative to ALL of the builds you can put in a Runaan's Hurricane since your W will be applied to 3 targets thanks to it being an onhit effect and the Runaan bolts applying onhit effects. However, the use of your W varies with the team comps, the less tanky they are the less it will be of use BUT it is essential regardless.

Varus is an ADC who is rather strong in the Midgame due to his otherworldly Q poke and his ability to apply grievious wounds to everyone, and at all HP lvls unlike lets say morrelonomicon who only applies it to low hp targets. Varus however can be seen kind of like a Patheon. The longer the game goes on the weaker he grows. Yes he will still be very effective and if you can use your Q correctly you will push their Squishies back but you will be VERY unsafe because you are easy to reach and are almost of no use against enemy tanks if you cannot use your W stacks.
