Wild Rift Varus Gameplay Tips and Tricks

wild rift varus guide

Early Game: 

In Wild Rift, Varus’s early game is very weak. So, in the early game, try to farm from a safe distance and use your second ability (Piercing arrow) to poke the enemy. Once Varus gets his ultimate, you can look for an opportunity to engage and try to get a kill. Varus’s Ultimate is really good in team fights, so only use it if you are sure you can get a kill.

Late Game: 

In the late game, when Varus get his core items, he becomes really strong, and he can kill the whole enemy team with his attack combos. When you are playing as AD carry, try to stay behind your team as most of the time, you will be the primary damage source of your team, and if you die early in, your team will struggle a lot. So, always let your frontline engage and sock damage while you deal damage from a safe distance.
