Not Updated For Current Season
The masteries shown here are not yet updated for the current season, the guide author needs to set up the new masteries. As such, they will be different than the masteries you see in-game.
This is an moderate, AD and Huge attack speed build.
This guide is a work in progress that will change over the next few weeks/months. Varus being very new ideas are constatly being worked on. Constructive criticism is always apreciated. more detail to come.
Clarity would be more suited to a support Champion, this build is based on doing most of its damage through auto attacks and has addressed insufficient mana problems.
Surge While the attack speed would be nice the increased AP would only be useful to [Chain of corruption], and scales poorly with [blighted quiver]
Smite Leave this for the jungler you shouldn't even need to kill health mobs with the amount of life steal you have with this build.
Revive The cooldown is way to long to be as useful.
Since this is a build designed for moderately strong and very fast hitting the item build is not very malleable. I tried swapping in the Banshee's Veil But i did not perform as well having to wait for other items.
Mid to late game
I put one point in each ability for the first 3 levels and then level Piercing Arrow and Blighted Quiver back and forth getting levels in Chain of Corruption as soon as they are available. I max Hail of Arrows last.
- Use Hail of Arrows to slow the enemy down or cut off their retreat.
- even if it wont hit all your opponents Chain of Corruption will stop at least one enemy and allow your team to get the kill or allow them to escape.
- attack. constantly attacking whoever your team is concentrating on. Your hits might not be heavy but they are often, and with Phantom Dancer and Infinity Edge a little over that every other shot will hit critically. this includes attacking minions to restore your health
In lane again be aware of who your allies are attacking, aid them. otherwise default to the opponent with the least amount of health or Health%. for example avoid concentrating on tanks.
Once you have some life steal remember hit those minions to replenish your health. if you have full health then your whole lane will be more intimidating.
Lock in before calling "mid" in a random group.
Try to avoid Kill Stealing
be a gracious winner, and not a sore loser
On the other side of this coin, Don't belittle your opponents just because you are winning, just keep playing and then enjoy your victory. maybe even offer them some advice. like "hey you need to remember to put up your wards it helped our jungler jump you constantly."
In essence "Be polite. Be efficient. Have a plan to kill everyone you meet." - the sniper
