Tips Against Varus in Bottom Lane Tips Provided by MOBAFire Guide Authors

LegendaryOstrich says “You win until Varus gets rageblade. With quick reaction speed you can dash or flash out of the way when Varus is channeling his ult. If you are ahead consider buying a QSS to counter the ultimate in case you get hit.”
[11.4] Ostrich's Lucian Guide [In-Depth] by LegendaryOstrich | Lucian Player
snowcard says “You block every ability of his. This champ kinda sucks right now. What you can block: Q damage, E slow, R. ”
LostFishEU says “Why I put Varus as a major is simply the ultimate. His ultimate makes it really easy for his support to follow up with a bind / root / hook. Varus ultimate also roots you as Vayne from using tumble and using you ultimate invisibility, which makes it that you will lose out on a lot of damage. Pre-Level 6 Varus doesn't have too much. Varus has his Q and E that could chunk you low but you also have your tumble to dodge them.”

Vapora Dark says “Varus is a problem for Jhin, the range on his autos makes him a pain to out trade pre 6 and post 6 he can hardcore CC you, and with a lack of mobility its hard to dodge, causing you to be unable to attack back because of his auto range and lose the fight thanks to his Q/W burst. Focus on farming early and let your support/jungle create the pick, which thankfully is pretty easy to do due to his lack of any form of mobility. Not even a movement speed steroid.”
IHaveNoName says “After avoiding his ult, he is good for your payout. But beware, strong poke. Extreme threat if ult is present. Build Scimitar in moments of doubt.”

Chaeha says “Varus game plan is to look for constant poke with his piercing arrow and hail of arrows. In the lane state, as long as Kai'Sa dodges Varus poke and respects varus Chain of corruption, it should be an even matchup.”
[11.4] Chaeha's Updated Grandmaster ADC Kai'sa Guide by Chaeha | Kai'Sa Player
FunkyBeagle says “Varus isn't too bad as long as you watch for his poke with Piercing Arrow. He'll try to throw down his E on top of you when you walk up for CS, so just be weary here and try not to take too much damage.”
[11.4] Beagle's ULTIMATE Diamond Kai'Sa Guide [IN-DEPTH] by FunkyBeagle | Kai'Sa Player
Remmacs1 says “Aphelios and Varus have pretty similar levels of damage output in the early-mid game. Varus wins if he's able to hit Aphelios with his ultimate. Aphelios wins if he is able to land a combo on Varus.”
Ultimate Aphelios Guide by Master Aphelios OTP by Remmacs1 | Aphelios Player
ELOSANTA says “A good Lucian player shouldn't lose this match. All of Varus's abilities can be dodged using Lucian's dash. If the Lucian player is experienced he should win, now this match is not impossible for Varus to win the matchup because he could time his skills after Lucian uses his E so as Lucian you have to know when to use your E. Lucian's E is 18 second cool down at level 1 and Varus' arrow is 16 seconds so if you use it to dodge something be aware that his arrow comes off cool down first. Varus' E is also another thing Lucian can outplay with his E, at level 1 Varus' E is a 18 second cool down which is equal to Lucian's dash. Unless Varus is engaging pre level 6 if he is just using it to poke it's not worth a dash because Varus can follow with a Q while you're running away. After Varus has level 6 save your dash for his R. Read his body language since it is a short range if we walks up be ready to dash away.”
[11.4] Rank 1 Lucian In-Depth Guide by ELOSANTA | Lucian Player
A_Drunk_Carry says “His Q is fairly telegraphed, but it does outrange you. Aside from that the lane is pretty easy. He's immobile, and you hurt way more. ”

Tips Against Varus in Middle Lane Tips Provided by MOBAFire Guide Authors

Elite500 says “Make him regret playing varus mid by perma q'ing him off cd and oneshotting him”
Complete Vladimir guide, made by EUW Challenger Elite500 by Elite500 | Vladimir Player
lkycch says “Zilean will struggle against AD poke and get bullied hard in lane. His kit includes a devastating long-range snare which will force you to stay at range. Your best bet is to wait for him to dodge his ult whilst hitting him with GLP+Q+W+Q. A risky play, but that's the only way. If your team lacks hard engage, I suggest dodging as Varus will destroy your team! Nobody expects AD poke!”

FalleN3 says “He as a big range advantage on you and will poke you hard through laning phase. Movement Speed Quints will be useful here and farm until level 6. You will be able to all-in him once you have Tibbers.”

Grayified says “Annoying poke. You win all-ins if you can dodge his R.”
