Varus is my favorite AD carry, and I feel he is a little weaker than the others. He is VERY fun to play, and is very rewarding with his Q. I just feel his passive is wasted potential, so I got to thinking....

How about we switch his W and his passive?

New passive:
Blighted Quiver.
Varus' basic attacks deal bonus 10 + (1 * Level) (+0.3 per ability power) magic damage and apply Blight for 6 seconds (stacks 3 times). Varus' other abilities detonate Blight, dealing magic damage equal to 2 / 2.75 / 3 / 3.5 / 4% (+2.5% of ability power) of the target's maximum health per stack. This damage is capped against monsters (I Believe it's 200 damage capped on monsters, could be wrong). Upon death all stacks of Blight detonate.
(Nerf on the % health, made it so he avenges himself on death, by detonating the blight stacks. Increased the AP ratios to make AP Varus a bit more possible)

New W:
Living Vengeance.
Passive:
Varus' attack speed is increased by: 5% / 10% / 15% / 20% / 25%
Active:
Varus can activate this ability to double its effectiveness for 5 seconds, but this removes the passive attack speed bonus until Living Vengeance becomes available again. Additionally, killing a champion refreshes Living Vengeance's cooldown. Assists reduce the cooldown by 50%. Cooldown is reduced by 1 second with each minion kill.
Cooldown is 20 seconds at all ranks.
Mana cost is 25 / 30 / 35 / 40 / 50.
(Making his old passive a bit more controllable, but also keeping the "snowball on kills" feel to it, extra 10% AS boost might be too strong though).

PLEASE NOTE:
Activating his W does not stop his passive, it stops the passive attack speed Living Vengeance would normally give him. Think Master Yi's Wuju Style.

What do you guys think? I don't really like how situational Varus' passive is, and I think this buff will help him, and he still won't be super overpowered due to having no escape.

Added this idea in.

I think it would be pretty cool if the passive effect of the new spell only worked after he last hits a creep, and I think it would make everybody happy.
Added this in too.

Make the new W like Wuju Style; It refreshes with kills, and the passive is deactivated when it's on cooldown. So kills give him more bonus AS temporarily

Riot hire this man!

I mean it is PERFECT.
Gives you an actual W (I can click the button is what I mean). Gives him a useful passive. Gives him an AS steroid.
Only thing I would be afraid of is that this is too strong? Maybe not, not saying it is, just fear it COULD be.

But love the idea +1

That's actually a great idea, let me add it in.

I like how it keeps the original idea of his passive.

AS cap is 2.5, so it can only get so 'bad'.

Might wanna rework that...

Yknow, instead of saying "Doubles his AS"

Which would be a 100% bonus

Changed it, I knew my wording was kind of off. Now it makes sense!

Oh my god. This is actually perfect. It would fix basically every problem Varus has.

Riot, please make this happen.
