Introduction - a.k.a. all you need to know for short

When playing Varus there is 1 and only 1 trick - stay at a safe distance for most of the time and harass the enemy. Always try to trigger the blight stacks, and never be scared to use your ult, even if it is not in team fight. Do NOT save your ultimate for team fights only that is one of the worst mistakes people make, which leads to performance issues. Varus is one of the carries who, despite lack of escape abilities has great CC, so use that to the max. In my opinion Varus has no actual counter, despite popular claims that mobile champions like Ezreal and Sivir could be his counter, he like Caitlyn is OP and has been for quite a while, only if played correctly though. And most important - get used to how much damage you can dish out - that comes only with practice so go try this out and see for yourself, it will be a bit harder at first, hell i was terrible when i first started playing him, but with some practice, now i main Varus. 'Nuff said - where there is will there is a way - train hard and snipe like a boss :D

Spells

Most viable options are Flash and Barrier, and if you are Very confident in your skills you can go with Ignite as well. Flash and Ghost will give you bigger mobility and escape mechanisms, which make them also a very good option.
