Summoner Spells Back to Top

4.png Varus has no dash, you can't enter a game without this summoner.

7.png Strongest summoner since a long time, 21.png isn't good anymore, go for heal in 95% of your games.

1.png Take this ONLY if you are facing 22.png and keep it for when she use her arrow against you.

New Runes Back to Top

Masteries Back to Top

Ferocity - 18


Fury / Sorcery : I always take Fury as it gives 5% of AS (which starts to make a lot with Quintessences) and caster Varus is not OP anymore.

Fresh Blood / Feast / Expose Weakness : The last one is totally useless for an ADC, Feast is safer than Fresh Blood because it allows you to regen every 30 seconds but both are good.

Vampirism / Natural Talent : Always go for Vampirism, you don't need bonus AD and AP and Lifesteal is very important in early game to survive trades.

Bounty Hunter / Double Edged Sword / Battle Trance : DES is useless as it gives same bonus than Battle Trance but also makes you take more damage from ennemies. Bounty Hunter is really strong too, up to your personal preference.

Battering Blows / Piercing Thoughts : Do I really have to explain why you have to take Armor Pen and not Magic Pen ? BB is an insanely strong mastery, especially in late game as it gives you %ArmorPen, with this one and a 3035.png you will destroy tanks in less than a second.

Warlord's Bloodlust / Fervor of Battle / Deathfire Touch : Only Fervor is good as a keystone, Warlord is dead since it's last change and DFT isn't useful for an auto-attack based ADC. 


Cunning - 12


Wanderer / Savagery : Savagery helps you a lot for early game last hitting so never start a game without it or you will be totally lost, 5 more damages to minions is a huge difference.

Runic Affinity / Secret Stash / Assassin : I like to go for the biscuits, the instant heal can save your life in a close trade, Assassin is good too if you like to stay alone on a lane to push it.

Merciless / Meditation : Who cares about having more mana regen when you only use your basic attacks ? Merciless is a very strong mastery to take down low HP targets, always go for it.

Greenfather's Gift / Bandit / Dangerous Game : Only Dangerous Game is good, restoring your HP and Mana when you get kill / assist can change a trade or even a teamfight.

varuspassive.png Your passive is your key to win trades, when it's active you can't lose a fair trade (not including ganks or 1v2 situations). It gives an insane AS boost for 5 seconds, try to have it up as much as possible. It's important to notice that this bonus is bigger if you got a kill / assist and it scales with your bonus Attack Speed.

varusq.png Your main poke and damage ability. It can also help you to push your lane in early game when you don't have 3085.png. Don't forget that each arrow cost a lot of mana so be careful and don't spam it.

varusw.png A very good passive ability, it's very important to stack it 3 times before using a spell against your target. If you do it correctly it will (almost) results in a won trade, don't underestimate this ability.

varusr.png A 2 seconds AOE root, what do you want more ? It's a very good engage / escape tool, always try to keep it for fights or to escape an assassin.

Items Back to Top

Starting Items

    Standard start, a bit of lifesteal and damage to make you safer in the first minutes of the game.

Core Items

    1. Always go for it as your first big item, it's presently very strong and gives insane stats.
    2. An item that works really well on Varus, take it in every game you play.
    3. Boots save lives, always get them.
    4. Now that you have some crits with Runaan it's time to make them even stronger, it also gives a lot of AD.
    5. You still don't have enough attack speed ? Go for this, and if you still don't have enough go contact Riot because you reached the maximum.
    6. A lot of choices here, check the notes behind.

Situational Items

What should I take as my 6th item ?


3026.png I die a lot / ennemy team always focus me. This item gives you armor, magic resist and a second life. Ennemies will think twice before going on you.

3033.png I am facing a champ with a lot of regen (8.png50.png16.png). It also works against tanks because it gives 45% of bonus Armor Pen, always go for it if you are playing against a champ that regen a lot of health.

3036.png The ennemy team has unkillable tanks. With this item they will disappear quicker than minions, always buy it if there is 1 or more tank against you (even one tank can kill you 1v1 if you don't have enough amor pen).

3072.png I need more regen to survive fights. This item is very strong to stay alive during a whole fight, the lifesteal it gives is just insane.

3139.png The ennemy team has a very heavy CC. With this item you won't die anymore everytime a Lux hits you with her cage or when a Ryze just flash to cage you.

VS

Ashe

Easy

You have a better early game than her, deal with it and get her down as much as possible. Always take 1.png if you don't want to die each time she use her enchantedcrystalarrow.png against you.

VS

Caitlyn

Medium

I can't say it's easy because playing against Cait is very tricky as her range is better than yours but you can win it without too much problem if you don't get caught by her trap. Your Q has an insane range, use it to poke her in laning phase.

VS

Ezreal

Hard

Ezreal is mobile, Ezreal can avoid all your spells with his ezrealarcaneshift.png and he has a better poke than you because his ezrealmysticshot.png doesn't cost a lot of mana. Avoid picking Varus against him.

VS

Vayne

Medium

In early game you can't lose if you don't make a huge mistake. Try to snowball against her and never let her farm up or she will just come back and destroy you in 2 seconds. Don't stay near wall if you don't want to get stunned by her vaynecondemn.png.

VS

Xayah

Medium

A very tricky one, especially because the champ is new. She can avoid your ult with her one so try to wait for her to use it if you don't want to waste your engage / escape tool for nothing. She has a strong root / damage spell with her xayahe.png, always watch where feathers are if you don't want to die.
