Best Build Guide for Varus
Item Build Description
Additional information on the items
Beforehand let me give you detailx WHEN YOU PICK YOUR BUILD
|Build||Requirement of draft|
|Lethality||3 enemy champ are squishy ( Katarina mid lane, Ezreal duo lane, Lux support for instance)|
|APC||4 of your team draft are AD ( Braum support , Yasuo mid lane, Darius baron lane , Vi jungle )|
|On-hit||2 enemy champ is bruiser, their support is a tank, your mid laner is an AP champion ( Lee Sin jungle, Nasus baron lane, Leona support )|
Okay that's getting out of our way, let's start.
you need to get your first core item as soon as possible as lethality, but for on-hit and APC try to get 2 components of your first core item.
at minute 6 i expect you guys already have your first core item, tier 2 boots (i mean upgraded) / if needed tier 3 boots (i mean enchanted) and going for your second core item, and finish up as soon as possible.

Varus Matchups & Counters
Detailed information on how to play matchups and counters
low range champ like her cannot eat your ability early on, you have superior range and ability. however, do not take her on 1 vs 1, you will die instead.
and try to finish the game as soon as possible, you can't fight her late game.
same as Kai'sa . look on her reasoning.
careful with her roots and feather placement, remember you don't have escape mechanism, her threat level will be very high if she has Rakan as her support.
and try to finish her without she able to cast Featherstorm
same as every hypercarry, she won't be a threat early on but later on she find you, and she will kill you.
just be careful with your positioning especially how slow you are on Make It Rain
all of her kits will make your weakness even bigger, her kits screams slow, and you don't have any escape mechanism. thread carefully.
you can mess with her early on however if you landed on her Flame Chompers! you're gonna suffer, either you need to back to base and losing gold / exp, or you going to die. thread carefully with Switcheroo! rocket
who is able to land the skillshot ability better, will win the fight.
it's poke vs poke. same as Ezreal
Varus' laning partner
|Leona||absolute disgusting support, buff after buff, her range on
is huge right now and you can even make your lane more lethal potent with all of her abilities plus
CERTIFIED BANGER WITH VARUS
able to have bonus attack speed easily to proc
and his ultimate,
is one of the best engage ult in the game.|
CERTIFIED BANGER WITH VARUS
|Lux / Seraphine||If you see auto filled support, you gonna see either Seraphine or Lux . Lux provide roots and slow that you able to capitalize with your all in combo.|
|Sona||Well not too much to said here, Sona offers some healing and movement speed which are nice bonus considering Varus weakness is no mobility.|
|Malphite||Just don't play Malphite support for God's sake.|
|Janna||One of the best disengage champion, Janna can make Varus easier to escape with Tailwind and also giving him AD boost from Eye Of The Storm . however it is preferable if paired with Janna using APC or On Hit build.|
Early - Mid
Okay. here. we. go.
Varus require good laning phase so try to NOT FEEDING EARLY ON. you need to getting more last hit so you able to have Living Vengeance keep proc for ypu and able to threaten your opponent's duo lane. use your Hail Of Arrows to start engaging as the slow able to trigger Weakness and also reducing healing in case of they gonna use healing for themselves.
always keep an eye on their mid laner and jungler as you doesn't have escape capability outside [flash] . until minute 3:30 keep farming and getting components or first item core for the team fight.
when the team fight start, use your [varus:ult] so he / she cannot escape (as root mechanic doesn't allow you to using [flash] ) and finish your target using all the combo provided early on. use the power spike that Living Vengeance provide after take down (or even better, kill) to stack the blight into the next target and pop it with either Hail Of Arrows or Piercing Arrow .
Mid - Late
you need to stay far from team fight and keep proc your blight and also use the attack speed bonus via Living Vengeance and engage with Chain Of Corruption . by to by, when using Hail Of Arrows or Chain Of Corruption you are able to boost your team's damage capability because they can trigger Weakness if you using that minor rune. 5% damage is heavy bonkers i would like to say as basically poor man Champion rune for everyone.
if you see any probability that you can find most valuable target and sure you can pop your target down, use all in combo immediately so when a team fight break out, your team have an edge against your opponent.
- Always remember that Blighted Quiver has active component that make your auto attack more powerful and enchanting your Piercing Arrow . it's insane a lot of people forgot about this one.
- Chain Of Corruption works like this. the one getting the first root will get 3 blights, however for the one that surrounds the first target will get two blights so you need to auto attack them once to get them into three blights.
- Protobelt Enchant and immediately Chain Of Corruption is good to caught them off guard and have small to zero chance to react.
