Okay?
They figured he was a tad too strong.
Believe it or not, they try not to make release champions OP...they try at least.

I suppose this is true. I guess I was hoping for a little bit of easy mode for a while. Oh well, Varus is still going to be bad ass.

Worth bearing in mind that live balancing keeps testing and tweaking right up until the final possible moment, so the numbers you're seeing on the PBE at the moment shouldn't be treated as final any more than the values from the PAX build were (reverted a couple of those changes in the latest internal build for example, though that's no guarantee they'll stay reverted).

Also looks like the data mining there's a little off - mana cost on the ult doesn't change with rank for example.

That was something I thought was really strange.

GOOD IM GLAD THEY NERFED VARUS

Every single Ranged AD is released disgustingly overpowered, thank you Riot.
