Detonating Blights stacks with
Varus
Q
deal up to 80% bonus damage based on time charged.
Varus
W
can be activated to empower
Varus
Q
, dealing bonus % missing HP damage.
Varus
R
applies max Blight stacks to affected units over its duration.
Strengths
Very strong laner, and is considered to be a lane bully.
Varus
E
doubles as a zoning tool to block enemies off from areas.
His gank assist and teamfighting become much stronger after unlocking
Varus
R
.
For On-Hit, he synergizes well with
Immortal Shieldbow
,
Runaan's Hurricane
,
Guinsoo's Rageblade
,
Phantom Dancer
,
Wit's End
, and
Blade of The Ruined King
. Can opt for
Galeforce
or
Kraken Slayer
when needed.
For Lethality, he synergizes well with
Duskblade of Draktharr
,
Manamune
,
Edge of Night
,
The Collector
,
Youmuu's Ghostblade
, and
Serylda's Grudge
. Can opt for
Eclipse
or
Galeforce
when needed.
Weaknesses
Completely immobile, leaving him vulnerable to ganks.
Needs to constantly land his skillshots or he'll have significantly lower damage output.
Varus
R
is his engage tool but also a protection tool. He becomes much easier to collapse on without it.
