Playing against Varus
Key Insights
Ganking him early is key, even more so than Twitch since he has a much stronger early power spike.
High early-mid game DPS due to AP/on-hit build, but falls off hard late game compared to other meta ADCs.
E
applies Grievous Wounds--really strong against sustain supports or Vlad/Swain.
Tanks and bruisers should build MR +
against him. He deals a decent amount of AP damage, so don't just build armor.
Power Spike
Great early game spike with
+
.
adds a lot of AoE DPS to his build.
Strong lvl 6 kill potential (with Support and Jungler) with
R
to start off the fight.
Vulnerable
Low mobility. Early jungler ganks or all-in supports can eat him up if he's not careful.
