Introduction

Going to add some text into my Varus Guide later on and test other builds as well.

Atleast u can get a hint how to build him at the moment!


Guide Top

Lore

For his incomparable skill with the bow and his unquestioned sense of honor, Varus was chosen to be the warden of a sacred Ionian temple. The temple was built to contain an ancient pit of corruption so vile that Ionian Elders feared it could envelop the island in darkness. Varus prided himself on his position, as only the most exceptional Ionian warriors were selected for the role. He lived with his family in a nearby village and led a quiet life of disciplined routine until the day the forces of Noxus invaded Ionia. Their shock troops left nothing but death and desolation in their wake, and the temple lay in their path. Varus was forced to make a decision. He was bound by honor to stay and defend the temple, but without him the village's few inhabitants could offer little resistance against the oncoming war machine. Gravely, he chose to fulfill his duty as a warden. The corruption could not be allowed to escape.

His arrows sundered the troops who tried to wrest the temple from him that day. However, when he returned to his village, he found that it had been reduced to a smoldering graveyard. Remorse at the sight of his slain family gave way to overwhelming regret and then to seething hatred. He swore to slaughter every Noxian invader, but first he needed to become stronger. He turned to that which he had sacrificed everything to protect. The pit of corruption would consume him wholly, as a flame devours a wick, but its abominable power would burn within him until he was lost. This was a path from which there could be no return. With grim resolve, he condemned himself to the black flames, feeling malevolent energy bond to his skin... and with it, the promise of ruin. He left, seeking the blood of all Noxians involved with the invasion, a grisly task that eventually led him to the invasion's most infamous perpetrators in the League of Legends
.
"The life of an arrow is fleeting, built of nothing but direction and intent."

Pros / Cons

+ Turns a fight when mastering his Ultimate
+ Can snipe enemys from far away with good damage to secure kills
+ Nice CC Spells like an AoE Slow/Healing Debuff or an extanding root
+ Early game more Damage through his Spells than Autoattack wich means you can stay a bit defensive


- Extremely Squishy

- Targeted first in team fights like mostly all Ad Carrys
- Cause' he is new in the League more player want to play him have to get him fast




ADDING MORE PROS/CONS LATER!!!


Guide Top

Items

If you got Phantom Dancer already and have to buy one survival item,
u have to drop Berserker's Greaves.

Maw of Malmortius if the enemy got a fed AP Carry.

Frozen Mallet if the enemy got a fed AD Carry.


Guide Top

Masteries

As an AD carry, Varus runs good on the following 21/9/0 set up.

+ Getting better offenive stats on his auto attack and for his spells!
+ Giving him the extra defense stats he needs to fight in teamfights and against other ad carrys.


Guide Top

Runes

For Runes we take:

Armorpen Marks

Armor Seals
and
Magicresist Glyphs.

If you know you will do well maybe if the enemy team got bad AD carrys you can get

Manareg/5 Seals instead that you can harass the enemys on your lane more often.


Guide Top

Summoner Spells



all the way as an AD carry.



But you can take



Instead of Flash if you want to, because Varus is pretty slow compared to other champs early game.


Also viable:






BUT WHAT ABOUT

Unique Skills

His First spell Piercing Arrow:

When you activate this spell his Arrow gains extra range and damage the longer his spends preparing fire it for 4 seconds.

If you decide to not shoot your arrow the spell gets on cooldown and you get half the manacosts back!



His third spell Hail of Arrows:

Is an AoE Slow with Healing reduction...
do i have to say more?


Guide Top

Creeping / Jungling

NEVER STOP FARMING BOTLANE
, except helping teammates in range of course.

YOU are your teams' Ad Carry and cant sell yourself if you got not enough gold to buy the items you need.

so... If you start Top you have to protect your Jungler from enemy ganks...

and if you start bottom you stay here: [Image Following]
