Basics of Varus

Basics of Varus

So Varus is your basic AD carry champion, with a massive Poke. He does an excellent job at zoning out an enemy mid or top by proper use of his Piercing Arrow. Piercing Arrow should always be your first choice and should be maxed first in order to give you the best chance to hold your lane.

The next real important step to playing Varus well is learning to combine your Piercing Arrow, with the Blight stacks that Blighted Quiver apply. By applying stacks of Blight to enemy champions, monsters or minions Varus does damage but these stacks can be "Popped" with any of your skills.
So combinations like: Chain of Corruption->Surge->Wait to Apply 3 stacks->Piercing Arrow->Wait for 3 more stacks-> Hail of Arrows. Can result in lots of damage and deaths for the other team. This is also why building Varus Attack-Speed and Damage heavy makes him a hard champion to deal with.
