Guide Top

Farming

Early game when farming stand near enemy minions well holding the S key on you're keyboard so you do not auto attack the minions and when the minions are one hitable right click them then hold S again and repeat.


Guide Top

Poke Method

Early game when farming make sure to use your Piercing Arrow to harrase the enemies. When engaging for the kill allways use Hail of Arrows behind the enemy to prevent escape.


Guide Top

Late Game

Late game you will be dishing out tones of damage in team fights, make sure to stand at the back because you will most likely be the squishyest player on you're team. Also remember when you're build is finished you can switch out your berserker's geaves for Boots of Swiftness or you're Phantom Dancer for a Trinity Force for extra movement speed since you're attack speed will be high enough.


Guide Top

In 1v1's

In one versus ones allways make sure to to place Hail of Arrows behind the enemy after you use Chain of Corruptionand make sure to use Piercing Arrow as often as possible.


Guide Top

Team Work

After taking out the first turret and you push you're lane as fare as possible go give the other lanes a hand and end the laning faze.


Guide Top

Team Fight's

In team fights, you will be one of the highest damage dealers on your team, so you will need to sit at the back and take the least damage possible. Try to wait for your tank to enter the battle before you. Also remember to focus the squishyest players on the enemy team first, Enjoy your Multi-Kills.

Outro

Yes, Varus is verry underated and is used verry rarely used in ranked matches. What people don't know is that Varus is a VERRY high skill caped champion and his abilities can be much more effective if the player has profected them. In teamfights you can cleanup multi-kills and leave with nearly full health.
Well, this is all I have to teach you about Varus I hope it helped and or influenced you to give him a try.
