Active: Varus' next Piercing Arrow deals bonus magic damage equal to 6/8/10/12/14% to 9/12/15/18/21% of the target's missing health (scales with Piercing Arrow charge).

General Tips

General Tips Playing as Varus

  • An early point in Blighted Quiver helps harass enemy champions and get killing blows on minions.
  • During short range fights it's sometimes best to fire Piercing Arrow quickly, rather than charging it to full power.
  • Try to take advantage of Piercing Arrow's very long range to snipe at enemy champions before a fight or as they're trying to flee.

General Tips Playing against Varus

  • If you are affected by Blight, Varus' abilities will deal extra damage to you.
  • When he gets a kill or assist, Varus temporarily gains Attack Speed and is much more dangerous.
  • You'll get bound in place if a tendril from Varus' ultimate, Chain of Corruption, reaches you. You can cause the tendril to die however by running far enough away from it.
