Quick tips to play Varus

Try to poke consistently with your

VarusW
VarusQ

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

VarusR

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.
