The masteries shown here are not yet updated for the current season, the guide author needs to set up the new masteries. As such, they will be different than the masteries you see in-game.
Hello guys, this is DeathsShadow760 with my very first build guide! So what is going to happen here is we have the wonderful AD Carry/Marksman: Varus. Varus could be a real lane bully early game if used correctly. I start with blighted quivers first because once I hit level 2, with all the harassment you should be doing, you should chunk most of the opposing laner's health. For maximum damage you should hit the opposing laner 3 times with your blighted quiver, go to a decent spot in Bot Lane, ready up your Q or Piercing Arrow, and fire away! This should allow the enemies to think twice about messing wtih you or your support. I (The mana hungry person I am) will eat up mana crazily. This is caused by the major amount of harassment and creeps I am trying to get. Since your Q (Piercing Arrow) is a long ranged attack, use it to your advantage to get CS and to harass at the same time! After your little harassment, use your E not only to let them sit in the slow.... But also to negate their way of regaining health. Once you do that make sure once you get your Ultimate (Chain of Corruption), use that to lock them down as it will creep onto other enemies locking them down for a short period of time also. Your critical strike once your finished with the build will blow enemies up and ensure your victory on the Fields of Justice!
Pros / Cons
The critical strike will blow squishies and tanks up.
The attack speed working with the Bloodthirster will ensure your stability in 1v1 engagements.
Guardian Angel will negate magic and attack damage.
Guardian Angel will enable you to come back to life. ^_^
The Stattik Shiv proc will Crit other enemies.
Your Ult will creep onto other players.
AOE Damage with the E will secure kills.
The range of your Q is massive so you can catch stragglers.
Your Q does massive amounts of damage so you can secure Baron/ Dragon Really REALLY fast.
You will not be able to get any sustain until you finish the Phantom Dancer in this build, but also keep in mind that you can build the BORTK (Blade of the Ruined King) for attack speed and life steal.
Will be Squishy in team fights so use your Ulti in the beginning.
Not enough AOE.
If locked down will die INSTANTLY
The mechanics may not be reliable.
Escapability = Slim to NONE
MAKE SURE YOU WORK WITH YOUR SUPPORT
Use your support to your advantage, supports like Taric, Soraka, Sona, and Zyra will be good. They could have massive amounts of CC and you can catch people off easily. HAVE A NICE DAY ON THE FIELDS OF JUSTICE!
