Pros / Cons


    Fun to play
    Long range
    Good at harrasing
    ult can hit all oponents in team fights
    great ad carry if played right

    Long cooldowns
    Gets targetted a lot because he is the ad carry

Greater Mark of DesolationGreater Mark of Desolation:

I get this because Varus does a lot of ad damage. If the oponent(tank) was to get a lot of armor then Varus would be doing little damage to him and he could perhaps even kill you or last long enough for backup. This runes can help you penetrate through some of that armor.

Greater Seal of ReplenishmentGreater Seal of Replenishment:

I get this because Varus runs out of mana too quick. I harras a lot using my pierce of arrow right from the start and farm a lot using hail of arrow once i reach lvl 6 so he runs out of mana before you know it.

Greater Glyph of Alacrity:

A little extra attack speed is always usefull specailly for ad ranged characters. It lets you take down melle oponents before they get close enough to attack you.

Greater Quintessence of Strength:

I get this because the bonous attack damage early game can give you the advantage you need to win your lane.

You are the ad carry so you must farm as much as possible.

Hail of Arrows is a great ability to farm with but it takes a lot of mana so dont over use it especially early game.

Summoner Spells

I use this mainly for escaping and sometimes for escaping.

Lets you stay in lane longer to farm and take down enemies when you have low health. It also helps you take down enemies who are a little stronger then you.

Use it to take down enemies with low health who are about to run behind there turrets.

Use it to runaway, chase,or get to a different lane faster to defend.

Use it to get to a turret underattack or a teammate in trouble fast.

Use it to chase down and make an enemy easier to kill.

These items are not set in stone so dont be afrid to make some changes depending on the situation

    Use this ability to farm

    Use this to get away from an enemy that is chasing you or slow down an enemy that is trying to run away.

Chain of Corruption
    Use this ability in team fights to deal damgae and imobolize all enemies. This can give your team the advantage they need to win
    Use this to help your teammate get away from a enemy that is chasing them.
    Use this to get away from an enemy that is chasing you or stop an enemy that is trying to run away.

Early game

Early game you should stick to farming and harrasing your oponent.

Dont use Hail of Arrows to farm too much especially before you hit lvl 6 or you will run out of mana to quick.
