Summoner Spells Back to Top

Low mobility champion requires at least flash.
Usually run ignite for the extra damage early on.
Run ghost flash if you're against a champ that you'll push lane up quickly.
Run barrier against scary all in champs like 1_64.png  who will burst you down faster than you can. Or Cleanse to safely walk away from stuns and make their ignite useless

110_64.png Needs a little bit more mobility since he doesn't have gap closing abilities other than the slow on his E which isn't that good for getting out of bad situations.

The whole point of ap Varus is the stacks from his w and the ultimate damage every on hit does 25% of ability power per auto attack plus 10/14/18/22/26 per level. Thus extra ap plus attack speed = deadly damage.

The whole point of ap Varus is the stacks from his w and the ultimate damage every on hit does 25% of ability power per auto attack plus 10/14/18/22/26 per level. I recommend maxing Q 2nd to be able to fire off the piercing arrow from a safe distance to also pop the W stacks which do 2/2.75/3.5/4.25/5% + 2% per 100 AP of targets max health as magic damage which is a nice little bonus damage if you can land your Q or E.

The Ultimate will do magic damage to a champion by level as follows 150/250/350 +100% of AP.  this is your major burst damage and once you hit level 6 you can kill any champion if you haven't already in a 1v1 scenario.  Kill a minion immediately before you use this in order to gain additional attack speed for 3 seconds which will help apply W stacks while the champion is rooted, this will allow you to get 3 stacks off and an ability to burst them to death.  If you also have 3 stacks on the champion before using your ultimate it will do the additional 2/2.75/3.5/4.25/5% + 2% per 100 AP of targets max health.

Azir has really good harass. start boots to get out of range of his soldiers when he's engaging.

Start 1001_32.png and 2003_32.pngx3 to sustain better and avoid skill shots

VS

Cassiopeia

Hard

Very heavy Harass from her only use ultimate once hers is used, only because she can use ultimate when rooted.

VS

Ekko

Medium

stand a little bit behind minions and watch out for his insane ultimate damage plus % health Damage, cannot cast his ultimate while rooted! poke him down with Q and use E pre ekko ultimate to inflict Grievous wounds so he restores less health when cast.

VS

Ezreal

Easy

Your Q goes through minions his doesn't. Go1055_32.png to out poke him with Q's

VS

Fizz

Hard

his damage and all in potential is scary i recommend taking 21.png to avoid his ultimate all in damage. wait for playful trickster to be down then use ult and auto's to trade.

VS

Galio

Easy

Very easy match up start 1055_32.png and he'll be crying with his useless poke wave clear and just everything.

VS

Heimerdinger

Hard

he will push and be annoying. Stay under tower and ask for an early gank and you should be fine after then but he will be annoying as all heims are

VS

Karthus

Easy

even if he manages to land his Qs on you that means he's in range for an auto so just even out the trade with him.

VS

Katarina

Medium

Wait for her Q to be down before auto attacking. she outrages you 675 so 575 with her Q so she will have free hits on you. Your Ultimate roots her and disrupts her ultimate so as long as you aim your ultimate right you can kill her in a lvl 6 match-up.
