Varus is a dragon lane champion. He uses a mix of attack damage with auto-attacks and magic damage with his poke against the enemies to kill them. He also has great crowd control to help the team. He is not the best in the early game because he doesn't do a lot of damage and has very short range. The later the game goes and the more items he gets, the stronger he becomes. This is because of his really fast attack speed, great poke from Piercing Arrow (1st Ability), and crowd control potential from Chain of Corruption (Ultimate).
Varus does really well when building attack damage items and attack speed but also when building some ability power as well to increase the damage of his abilities. Blade Of The Ruined King is a perfect 1st item for Varus, it gives him attack damage and attack speed that is needed but also has a great passive. The passive is when you hit a champion with 3 basic attacks or abilities, it steals movement speed from that champion. The item also has physical vamp which can help Varus survive in the early laning phases. Nashor's Tooth and Runaan's Hurricane are both great items that give Varus a lot more attack speed to benefit more from Blighted Quiver (2nd Ability) and some ability power to increase the damage of his abilities.
Onto the runes, we have:
With the high attack speed and poke potential, you can get stacks really easily. This allows you to deal even more damage during the game.
This helps out Varus in the early game to get that extra bit of damage when last hitting minions and trading vs the enemy champion.
As an AD Carry you will always find yourself either getting a lot of kills or assists which works really well with this rune. You will gain health each time you get a unique takedown.
A great rune for if you get low in the laning phase and need that extra bit of healing and get some free money.
Varus is not the best champion in the early game. You can use your Piercing Arrow (1st Ability) at distance to help clear minions and/or use it to poke down the enemy. You want to stay back and play as passive as you can to try not to die so you can farm up to get your core items. Once you reach level 5 and have access to Chain of Corruption (Ultimate), you can look for an opportunity to engage and try to get a kill.
Once you reach the late game and have your core items, this is where Varus can use his poke and attack speed to kill the whole team. It's always best as an AD Carry to stay grouped with your team. You want to stay as far back from the enemies as possible and allow your front line to go in front of you to tank all the damage. Most of the time you are the main damage output, so if you are caught by yourself and die then your team is in really big trouble, so make sure you stay safe at all times.
Varus is a great starter champion if you want to give Dragon Lane a try! His abilities are really simple and he has a great play style for beginners that are just starting to play Wild Rift. If you're looking for a champion that can stay back and use abilities to poke down the enemies and an ultimate to crowd control and win the game then Varus is the right champion for you.
