Charges a shot for up to 4 seconds, increasing this ability's range and damage over the next 2 seconds, during which he is slowed.

Chain of Corruption

Flings a projectile in the target direction, dealing magic damage, rooting and revealing the first enemy champion hit. This champion will also get full stacks of Blight.

Quick tips to play Varus

Try to poke the enemy down with your Hail of ArrowsE and Piercing ArrowQ before committing to a fight.
Delay team fights while you harass the enemy with your Piercing ArrowQ. Once an enemy champion overextended, cast your Ultimate Chain of CorruptionR to catch them out of position.
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.
