Blighted Quiver.
Piercing Arrow is a very strong ability of
Varus in order to build up a lead and dominate your opponents. The passive is called

Biography

One of the ancient darkin, Varus was a deadly killer who loved to torment his foes, driving them almost to insanity before delivering the killing arrow. He was imprisoned at the end of the Great Darkin War, but escaped centuries later in the remade flesh of two Ionian hunters—they had unwittingly released him, cursed to bear the bow containing his bound essence. Varus now seeks out those who trapped him, in order to enact his brutal vengeance, but the mortal souls within still resist him every step of the way.

  • Comic: Varus: Heartlight

    Ionia. A land of magic. A land of balance. A land of light.

    But not always a land of peace.

    Just as there are creatures within Ionia who seek to upset its order, so too are there those who fight to preserve it; Arrows of Protection, hunters of monsters.

    Valmar and Kai are two such hunters.

    But not all monsters can be defeated with bow and steel.

    And not all darkness can be so easily banished by the light.

  • Comic: Varus: Retribution

    Slayer Valmar, desperate to save the life of his beloved Kai, surrendered to an ancient spirit, one of the Darkin.

    The creature, true to its word, saved Kai’s life...by taking it as its own.

    Valmar, Kai, and the Darkin fused into a single entity. A creature of rage, vengeance, and death.

    Varus lives.

  • Short Story: Dark Kin by Graham McNeill

    Varus followed a river running through the desert. Its water was gritty, but drinkable. The new body he had wrought to bear his bow was beautiful, fast and strong, but it came with the weaknesses of flesh. It hungered. It thirsted.
