So I've noticed that 90% of all guides skill R>Q>W>E.. Is it only me who thinks that Piercing Arrow ain't that good during the laning phase.. I find Blighted Quiver a lot better for harassing and winning trades in lane..

You're not the only one :)
Check my guide out, it's focusing on W first (playing at 1.7k Elo, so including some solid analysis :p)!

Read it and liked it, same conclusions as me.. I really enjoy Varus and the W skill is by far the best early game damage source for him..

Btw, have you encountered a strong counter against Varus yet ?
So far I've only seen 1 champion that is strong against him in lane, Urgot.

Also written down in my guide ;)
Me myself did very well with Vayne. If you're good with Vayne's Q, you can easily outplay Varus, especially if he maxes Q first.

E: oh and Urgot is pretty strong against him as well, y. But that's not something about Varus' mechanic, that's just Urgot being ****ing op. Only way to counter him is by the support pick ^^

I don't know why people max Piercing Arrow first, it's a skill shot and, as such, can be dodged.

Blighted Quiver helps with last hitting, and it allows you to do trades better.

If I helped you, click that +rep!

Hmm, I think Lulu+ Varus should be a nice combo. What could beat that?

Lulu isn't that good for Varus... he needs a lot more hard CC means stuns. Also to be protected in teamfights.

To answer your question: a high DPS lane, burst isn't that good against Lulu.
Urgot, Vayne, Kog'Maw...

So, the perfect partner would be Alistar.

Nautilus or Leona would be better. Even Blitzcrank.

Anyway, I max Q first because it has more nuke damage. It works better against laners with no sustain because if you can get in 2 or 3 good shots, they basically have to recall.

W is better for consistent poke and harass, I think. Also if they build heavy armor.

Hmm I have tried both, but I have more success with harassing with Q then stacking W first.
