General information

varus Abilities

Description
Cooldowns

Living Vengeance

P

Kills and assists give Varus a boost in attack speed for a short duration. This boost is much greater when an enemy champion has been killed.

Piercing Arrow

Q

Varus readies an arrow in his bow and charges it up before releasing it. The longer he charges, the further it will go and the more damage it will do.

Blighted Quiver

W

Varus passively gains bonus magic damage on his basic attacks. His other abilities will do bonus damage if they hit an enemy that has been afflicted with the blight. This ability can also be activated before a Piercing Arrow in order to increase the damge.

Hail of Arrows

E

Varus fires a hail of arrows at the target location dealing damage to enemies within and creating a dead zone. While in side the deadzone, enemies will be slowed and recieve reduced healing from all sources.

Chain of Corruption

R

Varus launches a corrupted tendril at his enemies which roots the first enemy champion that it hits. It then proceeds to spread to nearby enemy champions and immobilizing them as well if they stay with in range.

Quick tips to play Varus

Try to poke consistently with your

W >
Q
combo and then look to all in the enemy when they’re low.

Try to poke the enemy as much as you can before a team fight occurs. If the enemy over extends, don’t be afraid to throw out your

R.

Never leave your team's side as you will be easy pickings for an Assassin or Bruiser. Stick with your Support throughout the later stages of the game.
