How to play Varus



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 Build Breakdown


Manamune
Serylda's Grudge
Duskblade of Draktharr
Youmuu's Ghostblade
Guardian Angel
Ionian Boots of Lucidity - Stasis

Varus does really well when building attack damage and lethality items to deal a lot of damage with his poke from his 1st Ability (Piercing Arrow). Manamune is a great first item for Varus because you are using your abilities all the time and they have all have very low cooldowns, so not only do you need the mana from Manamune but you can also stack the passive very fast and upgrade this item to Muramana, this allows Varus to do a lot more damage when it comes to mid and late game. After Manamune you want to build Lethality items like Ghostblade and Duskblade so you can keep using your Piercing Arrow from range and do a lot of damage.


Onto the runes, we have:

Aery

With this poke build for Varus, most of the time you will be using your Piercing Arrow from range to poke down the enemies so on top of that Aery allows you to deal a bit more damage when you hit your abilities.

Brutal

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.

Hunter - Titan

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.

Sweet Tooth

A great rune for if you get low in the laning phase and need that extra bit of healing and get some free money.

Flash
Barrier

For summoner spells, Flash is a must on most champions. It's a great spell to get you out of a bad situation or allows you to flash into the team to get the killing blow. The go-to 2nd spell is Barrier. The most important thing to note with barrier is that it does not last a long time so you need to make sure you use it when you are about to take damage.

Early Game


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.

Late Game


Once you reach the late game and have your core items, this is where Varus can use his poke 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.

Conclusion


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.
