He may not be tanky, but he sounds like he has some really good Bot potential with his long ranged abilities as well as slowing abilities.

Thoughts?

Easy to gank, will die to anyone with gap closers, not a super strong 1v1 like Vayne.

Would Chain of Corruption (Ultimate): Varus flings out a tendril of corruption that immobilizes the first enemy champion hit and then spreads towards nearby uninfected champions, immobilizing them too on contact. Not counter that?

You can't rely solely on your ultimate to escape.

There is also Hail of Arrows for slowing, no?

He falls in the same vein as Ashe. He'll be able to kite all day, but he has no escapes and a strong initiation ultimate.

He belongs top, in my opinion.

With 40% cool down reduction his skills are reasonably short, but I don't know about his CC and kiting ability. An AoE slow does not stop gap closer AD with Mercury's Treads.

Q - Piercing Arrow - Xarthus range boost but can move and have to use in 4 seconds.
W - Blighted Quiver - Twitch all the way
E - Hail of Arrows - Kind of unique combination of slow, heal reduction, and AoE nuke.
R - Chain of Corruption - Lux's snare, but will have to see how far it bounces. Scales with AP so pretty weak damage for AD build.

What's interested about him is he's a hybrid damage dealer. His Q and E scales with AD, while his W and R scales with AP. So we'll probably see both AD and AP builds.

I don't think you'll see many AP builds play effectively on Varus. R will have too long of a cooldown to invest AP in, and W deals damage based on how many times you auto-attack in between abilities. I think the only reason AD champions have AP scaling abilities is for balance reasons - e.g. they pack so much utility for an AD build that giving them AD scaling will make the champion overpowered.

I'm expecting to see a lot of surprised Piercing arrows flying out of bushes.

This guy has quite the interesting kit. A skillshot nuke, On-hit toggle (with built in personal Leona passive), Soft CC and grievous wounds (and we know how powerful lifesteal is.) and a multitarget hard CC ult.

I think he'll fit in very nicely. He can likely kite all day, and his abilities compliment teamfights well. Definite candidate for top.
