VS

Ahri

Medium

she can dodge your ult with hers. If you dont miss you win.

VS

Akali

Easy

assassin who has high burst in a short amount of time. if you get peel you can kill her in like 2 secs. Lane is easy since ranged vs melee

VS

Alistar

Hard

he has cc, can knock you into enemy team, his ult blocks your damage 

hardest counter to varus its rediculous

VS

Amumu

Medium

he can cc you for his team but in 1v1 you melt him and he cant damage you fast enough

VS

Annie

Hard

her spell range is like your auto range and she will 100-0 you with a stun

VS

Blitzcrank

Hard

dont get pulled, you have no escapes

VS

Braum

Hard

his unbreakable thing can block your ultimate. note that it destroys projectiles after they hit him, even after the first hit

VS

Caitlyn

Medium

her e can dodge your ultimate and she has longer range. not that strong though mostly a bot lane bully

VS

Cassiopeia

Medium

just stay out of her range and use ranged combo to kill her. Early game is annoying if you get poisoned though

VS

Cho'Gath

Medium

has silence and knockup and if you get hit then he will walk up and auto ult kill you

VS

Darius

Medium

make sure you attack move and get peel

you should be able to melt him if you dont get too close and get pulled

VS

Diana

Hard

an assassin that will get in your face and burst you down really fast

VS

Dr. Mundo

Easy

he will try to build 200 mr and get 5000 hp but your combo will kill him :)

VS

Evelynn

Medium

invis and could have high burst depending on what you build


VS

Ezreal

Hard

his e will dodge your ult and he does more damage after that

VS

Fiddlesticks

Medium

he has that stupid non skilllshot cc, but not that much burst unless he ults you. your burst will 100-0 him so his w is nothing

VS

Fizz

Hard

his e dodges your shit and his Q E or Q R or E R will all kill you before you can do anything

VS

Galio

Medium

has cc but not enough burst to kill you before you kill him

VS

Garen

Medium

he will burst you down with a silence. why did riot remove every silence but garen ...

VS

Gnar

Medium

can jump around and be annoying and has cc, you can kill him easily with your combo if hes not fed

VS

Graves

Medium

he has burst but if you can get some team help/peel your burst does more damage

VS

Hecarim

Hard

he can get to you too quickly and has cc and speed to dodge your ult and is really obnoxious late game

VS

Irelia

Medium

she can dash to you but if your team gives a little bit of help your combo kills her

How to Lane Back to Top

AP Varus early game sucks.


Super Early:
-vs Hard lane, take 2 levels in Q and farm with it. Only use Q if you have to and try to get multiple cs with one Q.

-vs Easy lane, farm with basic attacks, poke opponent with 3 auto + e combo. 

-play safe because you probably will get ganked

level 6: 
-Get ganks from jungler with ult for kills
-set up combo for solo kills vs easy opponent
-continue to farm, avoid roaming since you cant fight jungler


once you get nashors, you should be able to kill your lane opponent with 3 aa + R + aa + Q combo.

with DCap + Void, you will one shot anybody in the game no matter how tanky they are with your combo.

Combos Back to Top

Ranged Kill vs Squishies

R > wait 1 sec for ult to put stacks on > Q
   At full build, this does 1000dmg from ult = 51% max hp from Q(w proc)



Maximizing Damage vs Melee Tank

3 auto > R > auto once (your ult gives stacks too) > E > auto (as many times as you can) > Q

This does 51% + 1000 + 51% + up to 51%



Running away:
E to slow > 1-2 aa> R > wait until r gives stacks > Q


Because of void staff and all the magic pen from rune/mastery/sorc, you do true damage to people with 55 or less MR.

Strength/Weakness Back to Top

Strength:

-Great late game
-Highest burst in the game
-One shots any tank at full build; doesn't even matter what they build or how fed they are
-can farm safely with Q

Weaknsess:
-needs peel
-weak early
-no immediate damage
