Summoner Spells Back to Top

Exhaust and Flash are fairly common spells on supports. Not much has to be said about this.

New Runes Back to Top

Masteries Back to Top

This is what I currently use. You can swap out fresh blood with expose weakness, as well as bounty hunter with double edged sword if you like. It depends on your playstyle and how much you prefer having more damage early on to more safety and/or if your laner is going to be as agressive as you are.

Use your varusq.png whenever possible while using varuse.png only sparingly to zone the enemy adc away from cs and to force them to reposition.


Depending on your matchup and your laning partner you might want to use varusr.png as soon as someone enters your range to be able to straight up murder them. Good champions for that are  119.png21.png236.png51.png81.png.
Otherwise use your ultimate primarily when it is needed for defensive purposes if you cannot guarantee to get a kill with it.

Items Back to Top

Starting Items

    If you cant build tear on first back
    Get tear and medallion early on
    Your early game inventory
    Reduces self slow and gives high MS

Core Items

    Get it after the early game inventory items. This is usually around the time you are lvl 9 and can buy oracles lense while also rotating mid after laning phase.
    Penetration, mobility steroid, CDR
    Pick one of these, usually after ghostblade. Get mortal reminder if the enemy team has a healing support and/or high sustain champions (or if the enemy adc is building lifesteal)
    Spellshield can be amazing as a backliner knowing that at least one fool will try to jump on you.

Situational Items

    Example full build

This might be the point where you start screaming that Varus is a terrible idea for a support because he needs to buy damage, which is expensive.


...Except it really isnt all that expensive. If you look at the items, only edge of night costs more than 3000 gold while all the others are around the 2,5k range (excluding boots)

Furthermore the combination of 3004.png2302.png gives you SO MUCH MANA REGEN that starting midgame you almost never run out of mana while poking for days. A regular varus with only 3004.png would run out of mana much, much faster because of that.

VS

Alistar

Easy

You might think this is a hard matchup but alistar has high mana costs and is relatively squishy early on so you can abuse those facts. Because of your high range he has to overcommit to be able to harass you which puts him into a bad spot.

VS

Ashe

Medium

Few standstill animations and can deal with your crap. Skill based matchup.

VS

Bard

Easy

He has sustain, but its fairly weak.

He has CC, but will never get in range to use it on you.
He can engage, but you can just ult his teammates.
The honestly worst thing he can do is bardR.png your tower for a towerdive, but other than that, bard absolutely does not wear any pants in this matchup.

VS

Blitzcrank

Easy

You have almost no standstill animations, which makes it easy to dodge his rocketgrab.png. Its a bit of a skill based matchup but technically speaking you have the better cards.

VS

Brand

Easy

Similarly to Zyra, you outrange him and can harass him without him being able to retaliate.

VS

Braum

Hard

An annoying matchup if only for the braumE.png. Other than that he can easily be harassed and does not pose too much of a threat on his own. Try to focus him to force him in a situation where he cannot back but cant defend his ADC properly either. Braum does not have built in sustain and he always builds 3302.png, so you can harass him when he goes in for cs (and generally just whenever, pretty much)

VS

Caitlyn

Medium

Its technically an easy matchup for you to play around but you need to stay on your toes at all times because her combo can oneshot you.

VS

Corki

Hard

This is probably the last enemy champion you want to give a lead to. He can easily engage on you and deals huge amounts of damage.

VS

Draven

Easy
varusq.png where his dravenspinning.png land and constantly ask him in /all chat if he is having fun to piss him off even more.

VS

Ezreal

Medium

Skill based matchup. Both of you have long range abilities and high poke damage.

VS

Jhin

Medium

Jhin likes to leave only short windows of time to get hit, so you usually want to wait with your varusq.png until he finally goes in for the autoattack animation to last hit. His harass is usually no problem for you, however if jhin has a hard engage support his damage will be enough to murder you.

VS

Jinx

Easy

Alot of standstill animations, low movement speed. Jinx is easy to harass and hit.

VS

Karma

Hard

She can outharass you with her insane base damage, has a shield and can snare you. Karma is probably the worst thing you can run into and you need to hope to god that your ADC is good at dealing with her.

VS

Kog'Maw

Easy

Almost nothing is in kogmaws favor in this matchup.

VS

Leona

Easy

Leona suffers from the same issues as alistar. As varus you will hardly ever be out of position, so leona would have to overcommit to get onto your bacon while being susceptible to harass whenever she goes in to get her 3302.png stacks off.

VS

Lucian

Medium

A very skill and patience dependent matchup for you.

VS

Miss Fortune

Medium

As MF support you are fairly even, although you definitely out-DPS her. Always respect her ultimate.


As MF ADC she is fairly easy to deal with since her harass requires proper positioning and you have much better cards in that regard.

VS

Morgana

Hard

High base damage and very much the "one shot one kill" playstyle.

VS

Nami

Medium

Her sustain/harass is annoying to deal with and she brings useful skills to her adc. Other than that she is unlikely to ever hit her namiQ.png on you, which should not mean you have to disrespect her though.

VS

Sona

Medium

Similar to Nami.

VS

Soraka

Easy

Just aim straight for her and hope your ADC does not get hit by the endless rain of starcall.png

VS

Thresh

Hard

I would say this is the only matchup you HAVE to be careful about.

Thresh brings alot of cc to the table while being able to engage into you. This makes your life troublesome.

VS

Tristana

Medium

Similar problems to corki, although she has a bit more of an issue engaging on you because she has no get out of jail card if she messes up.

VS

Twitch

Medium

Very skill and awareness based matchup.

VS

Vayne

Medium

Technically speaking you will always outrange vayne. However she can chase you down so your positioning might have to be cranked up a bit to deal with a fed vayne.
