No escape skill and his damage scaling is inferior to other ADs.

I'm wondering about that too TBH.

He does a ton of damage with his skills, but I'm guessing people don't like AD Carries who deal damage with skills as well as auto-attacks.

An AD scaling on his ult might make him better, but honestly he's fine right now.

Thats prob why he has no bug fixes nerfs or buffs.

For the same reason no one plays Caitlyn - strong in lane, falls off the more the game progresses.

No escape or repositioning ability is also a weakness of Varus, besides Flash he is dead if for example Irelia or Nocturne jumps him.

Meanwhile almost every other AD has an extra escape on a 10-20 second cooldown while Varus is stuck with only 265 second CD Flash.

And I've never seen a Varus do **** for damage lategame compared to most others. His Q is crazy easy to dodge and his E does no damage.

Varus doesn't need an escape, but it'd be nice. I personally just save my ult for escaping ganks.

His scaling is bad because Q and W is a main source of his damage, and Q stops his auto-attacks which are an AD Carry's source of end game damage. His kit and role kind of contradict each other I guess.

Also, his E is bad except for maybe the heal reduction portion.

Lastly, Flash Ghost on an AD Carry is terrible. Heal would potentially safe you more than Ghost and Ignite would be better for aggressive play.

Baddies asking bad questions then not accepting the answer they're given...The primary reason Varus ISN'T used often is because he has no escape (exactly what Luther already said).

His healing debuff is nice, and his poke is good too. But without an escape and a lackluster attack speed steroid, he's heavily gimped compared to Tristana who has everything Varus does, but "better".

His kit is a lot of fun, but he's easily countered by any CC heavy support or jungler. Without the mobility of Ez/Graves/Tristana he isn't as reliable a carry.

Overall though he's relatively "new" his kit needs some QoL changes. I'd say give him a move speed boost on last hits and make his Q increase his attack speed after landing on an enemy target.

That's just a random thought, he'd be too similar to Draven though if he had an AS and move speed buff. Either way, it's his lack of escape that makes him weaker than other carries.
