Introduction



Hey guys this is Keondre here with another guide. This is my 3rd guide here on MobaFire! My guide here is about Varus, The Arrow of Retribution. I chose to do a guide on him because he is a really interesting champion with a great skill set.



_____I have been playing Varus in the PBE Client and in regular games. I enjoy him a lot and I hope you enjoy him too! I hope you enjoy my guide as much as I enjoyed writing it. I hope to see some great comments.



_____ I have watched the Varus champion spotlight like 10 times. I played about 10 games with him on PBE Client. He is a pretty decent AD carry and fits well into most team compositions. I have written 2 other guides which are both above 75%. I am currently reading and studying other Varus guides here at MobaFire and SoloMid. I also have been watching other Varus players throughout my games. I play a lot of AD carries, and he is pretty similar to Ashe. I would like to think that I have a fairly decent amount of knowledge of the game and how to build champions.

Masteries



I run 21/9/0. Explanations:


Summoner's Wrath - Since we are taking Exhaust we want their amour to be reduced by 10 when fighting them. 10 armour reduction isn't much? Umm.. yes it is.
Brute Force - Helps you last hit. Since we are starting with Boots of Speed and 3x Health Potions, the 3 AD is helpful. That is greater than 1 Greater Quintessence of Attack Damage. It's like taking 4 of those quints!
Alacrity - Helps you last hit. I take this because it also stacks with his passive, Living Vengeance so you can last hit multiple minions within a 6 second time frame. You are going to be last hitting so this helps you attack faster to hit those minions.
Weapon Expertise - 10% armour penetration. Makes you hit harder.
Deadliness - 0.5 attack damage per level masteries. You will be hitting pretty hard already, this just gives you a little kick.
Lethality - Since we are grabbing Infinity Edge early, we will be hitting really high. This provides 10% crit. strike damage. The passive from Infinity Edge boosts your critical strikes to hit 250% instead of 200%. You will be hitting 260% now with this mastery!
Vampirism - Life steal... Pretty self explanatory.
Sunder - 6 armour penetration. You will be hitting harder with this mastery.
Executioner - You will be hitting 6% more damage to enemies that are 40% health or below. Helps with 1v1 and last hitting.



________________________________________
________________________________________
Resistance - Taken for the magic resistance and to fill a slot.
Hardiness - Taken for the armour. Since you are going to be at bot against other AD carries, you are going to be taking quite a bit of damage from them. This reduces it by a bit.
Durability - This makes you a bit beefier. Since you are quite squishy this helps.
Veteran's Scars - This makes you beefier as well. Since you are squishy, this helps.
