How's Varus holding up currently in the game? Used to be one of my preferred ADCs but I don't play bot very much anymore, what with the current meta. But I still like him, so I was thinking of picking him up again. Old favourites don't change easily, I guess.

Uh, tough question. I gotta say, that I am pretty unsuccessful with him right now. This might be, because of his low mobility. There are just too many assassins being played right now that will one shot him most of the time pretty easy without him having a chance of reacting to it. Furthermore, Varus strong point, nevermind if you build AD or AP, is the late game and this meta is a meta, where games last not much longer than 30 minutes. So, it is pretty hard for him to get there and he cant make use of his one strength, to shredd tanks, because there are no tanks being played at the moment.
These are some reasons why I would say, that Varus isn't shining at the current meta. I gotta say due to all the low-health poke supports, his laning phase still isn't bad.

Understood. Thanks for the feedback.

Nice guide, but I would like to read something about the skill priority. Why is E the first to skill and not Q or W?
xTheUnlimited (4) | August 9, 2018 2:42am
Aw, yeah. I forgot to mention the skill priority in my guide.
Basically you want to max your Hail of Arrows first, because the mana cost stays at 80 at all ranks and the base damage is pretty solid. Moreover the higher the level of Hail of Arrows, the better is the slow.
I would not max Piercing Arrow first if you are planning to build an On-Hit build, because it deals more damage the longer you charge it. As an On-Hit ADC you are losing DPS if you are running around for up to 4 seconds doing nothing. Remember that you are a vulnerable target while you are charging your Piercing Arrow, because charging it will also slow you down by 20%. Also the mana cost increases by 5 per rank for this spell. If you are building lethality (I wouldnt recommend it at all), then you should max Piercing Arrow first.
Maxing Blighted Quiver first isn't recommended too. Its still better than maxing Piercing Arrow as an On-Hit ADC. My main reason why I wont max Blighted Quiver first, is the fact, that it is scaling on AP. I know, I do still recommend the AP On-Hit build, but it wil take time until you wil get a bunch of AP. Furthermore the base damage of Blighted Quiver isnt that high, so it wouldn't give you that much of a damage increase as maxing Hail of Arrows first would do. You should definitly max Blighted Quiver second though.
Hope I could help you out with that little explanation. If you have more questions dont hesitate to ask them.

where would you rate kai sa on the threat list?
xTheUnlimited (4) | May 6, 2018 12:14am
I will add her today. Thanks for reminding me :)
I gotta say I had some trouble playing against her, but that was before her recent nerf. Think she still isnt that easy to handle, because of her solid damage output. You can make use of your high range against her. I would rate her on the middle of the list (5).

nice varus guide dude .Do you have youtube or twitch ?i realy like it .what do you think of lethality on him
xTheUnlimited (4) | April 10, 2018 10:23pm
Thanks ! No, I don't and I am not planing to start streaming or making youtube videos. I dont think Lethality Varus is viable at the moment. The Ad On-Hit build and Ap On-Hit build fit way better on him than Lethality does.
