After purchasing Varus, I immediately fell in love. His style and abilities are just what makes him a great ADC. But I have never had a good game with him. I can not kill a champion for the life of me, I die in two hits, I feed so bad, and add in my recklessness too. (I'm getting better at not Turret Diving though)

Can anyone play with me or give me tips? I wish to get better with Varus.

Items: I start with a sapphire crystal and work towards tear of the goddess then manamune so I won't run out of mana + AD. Work my way to beserker's boots for atk speed. Then I either get two Phantom Dancers and a bloodthirsters or two bloodthirsters and a Phantom dancer. My final item is an Infinity Edge.

Ablilities: I get my Q first because of its poke and range. Then 1 point into my W for stacks of Blights. At this point, I try to put stacks on enemies then hit them with my Q or just my Q if they are far away. Though I get hit and my health is half or lower before I even use my Q. Then I put a point in my E for the slow and Max my Q, E, then W along with the usual ultimate leveling. Once I get to level 6 and got my Ultimate, I use it for a stun. put some stacks, use E for slow and bonus damage, then my Q. The enemy hit me three times and kills me anyways. And when I'm running away, my Ultimate and sometimes my E seems like it has no effect. I barely take 3 steps and they are able to move again and kill me.

Help?

Don't bother with manamune. Since you're new to him just try the "Max W and farm like mad" route with him. You'll never run out of mana if you only use Q or E to proc W. Build zerk greaves, 2 dorans blades, and then a vamp scepter. If you're really ahead, build a bloodthirster, otherwise just go infinity edge, then build last whisper and Guardian angel.

W max is better than Q max IMO, because Varus has higher dps by procing maxed out E, assuming you're actually fighting and not poking.

I never charge Q, because it lowers DPS, I think it's his worst ability and it's just Blighted Quiver fodder.

Another neat trick is to trigger3 blight stacks with his ultimate, for a nice burst of damage.

Max Q if stomping lane.

W if not.

E if you need poke.

Also note that sometimes it's not worth taking your ult at 11 and 16 :3

It get 100 damage each level up. That's it.

No cooldown reduction, no missle speed increase, no spread speed increase, no increase in snare duration, nothing. Just 100 damage.

It's not broken because of the damage, it's the utility.

I play him more aggressively. His ultimate and W are far better damage contributions than Q will ever be.

Fact.

Q drops DPS, it does nothing if you don't charge it for 3 seconds. Terrible move. I max W, then E because E is a better DPS tool as well.

Also remember I do not ever play sissy poke lane and I usually have Leona support. I go for kills not annoyance.

Ill try and see how that goes.
And I think his Ult is usefull imo. Stun, decent damage, and an ok cooldown.

Varus has one of the best ultimates of any carry. He's really only hindered by his lack of mobility and the fact that he requires a kill or assist on something to get his AS steroid.
