    Would scaling MR glyphs not be better? Because in my experience in bot lane you don't need that much MR early, and the mid/late game amount works much better because it gives more resistance for the times when assassins like Akali are after you.

    Up to the player, it doesn't change much. It can help in lane against magic damage dealing supports.

    Really nice guide though but In Synergies,why you dont got soraka there?In my opinion and experience with Varus its really nice to have Soraka by your side,you can almost istant use your skills in earlygame,which has much impact if you are accurate with his Q.And her both heals allow you to dive if you got flash.So in my opinion shes also one oft the best sups for Varus,at least you are advanced with him.

    Varus is a early game aggression champion who can outrade and poke. Soraka is a passive champion whose only aim is to makes sure the adc never recalls. If you want aggression looks for someone who can apply healing reduction so the opposing sustain lane can't stop you, or pick a killer instagib champ to snowball

  • #107 grolich

    It depends. Soraka + Varus is a poke lane. Infinite mana...

    with varus' range this kind of poke lanes could be very useful in some match ups...
    Probably not in most match ups.

  • #108 thechosenone124

    Varus's arrow doesn't have good range, unless you charge it up, in which case any moron can dodge it. Bush arrows have uses, but there's a good chance the enemy lane will drop a ward, and you gotta go ward war. If you want a poke lane like this, Caitlyn's is superior

  • #119 Cop

    Soraka isn't that strong, there are much better pairs for Varus in terms of getting kills and locking targets down.

  • #104 grolich

    Very informative and helpful guide.

    One problem I see in the "item" section is this: Very little mentioning of the order of items to get. For example:Infinity edge: "probably the best ad item out there", last whisper: "the most important item for adcs"... With last whisper being mentioned as the 3rd item to get. I know many good varus players like rushing to infinity edge for example... so what are the potential item orders?

    1) greaves, botrk, ie, pd, lw is the order as appears on the images if I'm against stacked HP tanky bruisers and don't go for life steal?

    2) if 1 is what you meant, you REALLY mean to take infinity edge LAST in the other option? that's the first time I've heard of it for an adc (last whisper before ie), which is why I assumed the  images aren't necessarily the order...  But I'm not a very good player... So I might just be missing something.

    and last - is it ok to start with vampiric scepter and stop there for lifesteal until you get some of the other items? if so, which ones?

    I see that this skill set is slightly different than what i am used to. I use Q-E-Q-W-Q-R, and then i focus first on Q second on E. ofourse taking my ult whenever possible. 

    What makes the difference between the skill set a provided on this site and mine skill?

    seeing as by level 6 you have the same skills as the guide author, and that you both like q afterwards, the difference is in the early e+w.

    i think it has 2 parts:

    1) gets you out of trouble early on if the opponents are aggressive because of the aoe slow effect of e, while enabling you to punish overextended opponents because that slow lets you get off more shots at them...

    2) w synergizes extremely well with e and gives varus nice burst damage early on.

    again because of the slow effect you're more likely to get more shots in, and more stacks.


    though i've seen strong players go "q" first, so i know it's at least ok.

    i'm not a strong player, but personally i wait and see who are my lane opponents before i choose my first skill.

    if i know i'm outranged on all other skills i take q, otherwise i go for what this guide shows.

  • #103 thechosenone124

    If you are sure you can land your Q, it's better. However, it takes very little skill to land an E at any stage of the game

    Varus doesn't have a lot of damage very early in the game; taking W at level 2 greatly helps with your farming as it adds damage to your basic attacks. Also, it allows for some good poke really early in the laning phase, hitting 2 or 3 AA's then charging your arrow (I usually do 2 AA's then an arrow, because by the time you've hit 2 AA's they've started to back off. This also works best if you've just killed a minion for the bonus attack speed from his passive).

    Is AP Varus mid a good idea? He has a lot of zoning and few escapes, which means he could rule mid

  • #87 KjarRokulaine

    He can go mid. I've never done it, but I have a friend who says that it's ok.

  • #88 sadin0

    I wouldn't really consider it as a viable idea competitive-wise, unless you just wanna have some fun with it!

  • #89 thechosenone124

    Just curious, but why is it a bad idea? Is the AP scaling on W bad?


  • #90 Nova

    I assume it is because the damage output would be far less consistent, and given the fact he goes squish anyway...
