Varus's abilities and Game Play Footage

Posted on at 8:31 PM by Moobeat

It seems a lucky guy over at gamezone was fortunate enough to get some hands on time with Varus and has been kind enough to write up summary of his abilities for summoner's everywhere. I've mixed his descriptions with screen shots from the video below for your viewing pleasure.
Abilities:
Passive: Living Vengeance: On champion kill or assist, Varus gains 40% Attack Speed for 6 seconds.  On minion kill, Varus gains 20% Attack Speed for 3 seconds.
Q: Piercing Arrow: First Cast: Varus starts drawing back his next shot, gradually increasing its range and damage

Second Cast: Varus fires, dealing 77 to 115 physical damage, reduced by 15% per enemy hit (minimum 33%).  While preparing to shoot Varus' Movement speed is slowed by 20%.  After 4 seconds, Piercing Arrow fails but refunds half its mana cost. **This was with 3 points in it.
W: Blighted Quiver: Passive Varus' basic attacks deal 10 bonus magic damage and apply blight for 6 seconds (stacks 3 times).  Varus' other abilities detonate Blight, dealing magic damage equal to 2% of the targets maximum Health per stack (Max 360 total damage vs Monsters). **This was with 1 point in it.

E: Hail of Arrows: Varus fires a hail of arrows that deals 60 phsycal damage and desecrates the ground for 4 seconds. Desecrated Ground slows enemy Movement Speed by 20% and reduces healing effects by 50% **This was with 1 point in it.

R: Chain of Corruption: Varus flings out a tendril of corruption that deals 150 magic damage and immobilizes the first enemy champion for 2 seconds.  The corruption then spreads towards nearby uninfected champions, applying the same damage and immobilize if it reaches them. **This was with 1 point in it.

If  you want to read more up on Matt Liebi's opinions of the champion, check out the in depth preview over at gamezone!

I'll also like to direct your attention to this phone recorded champion preview from a fellow summoner during his time at PAX. It features a some of Varus game play and the his shots of his abilities.
