One of the ancient race of darkin, Varus was a deadly killer who loved to torment his foes with arrows, driving them to insanity before closing for the kill. Possessed of wondrous beauty, Varus was imprisoned at the end of the Darkin War, but escaped, centuries later, in the remade flesh of two Ionian hunters. The two men had unwittingly released Varus and now bear the bow containing his bound essence. Varus now hunts those who trapped him in order to enact his brutal vengeance, but the souls bound within him fight him every step of the way.

- Basic Attack: Varus fires a blighted arrow at the opponent.
- Living Vengeance: Varus gains 20% bonus attack speed for 3 seconds upon killing a minion or monster, increased to 40% bonus attack speed for 6 seconds upon taking down an enemy champion.
- Piercing Arrow: Varus channels for up to 4 seconds, increasing Piercing Arrow's range and damage over the next 2 seconds. Varus can still move while channeling, but cannot use basic attacks or abilities and is slowed by 20%. At the end of the channel, Piercing Arrow is automatically cancelled, refunding half of its mana cost. When fired, the arrow travels through all opponents and terrain, dealing physical damage to all enemies in the arrow's path, reduced by 15% per enemy hit down to a minimum of 33% damage.
- Blighted Quiver: Varus's basic attacks deal bonus magic damage and apply Blight for 6 seconds, stacking up to 3 times. Varus's other abilities consume Blight on enemies upon damaging them, dealing them magic damage for each stack that is capped at 360 against monsters.
- Hail of Arrows: Varus fires a hail of arrows that deals physical damage to all enemies in the target area and desecrates the ground for 4 seconds, slowing all enemies standing in it and inflicting grievous wounds upon them.
- Chain of Corruption: Varus flings out a tendril of corruption that infects the first enemy champion hit, dealing magic damage and rooting them for 2 seconds. The corruption then attempts to spread towards nearby enemy champions, applying the same damage and root if they stay near the infected champion for 2 seconds. The corruption then continues to spread until there are no further targets in range, but each champion can only be infected once per cast.
