Not Updated For Current Season
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.
So A while back I started toying around with my adc page and this is what I cam up with. It's not with out weaknesses however it is, in my opinion, a very good set up and allows for some early aggressive play from champions that would usually have to be more cautious.
Varus is of corse clasified as an adc and usually is seen in bot with support. HOwever I really injoy playing him mid witch isn't anything knew as fare as laning faze goesbut people saverly underestimate you when you walk into middle lane fighting an auri or katarina. In middle the minions are all yoursno chance of some one stealing your farm by accident and the champion your laning against usually doesnt have much in the way of armor early game. ALl these factors allow you to get fed faster and hit harder late game.
I use the runes I do because I believe having that additional attack speed early on is a game changer. Also with dorions blade doing +5 health on hit and not percent life steal faster attack is better for early sustain.
I know a lot of ADC players hate hurricane as an item however it is quite possible one of the most useful items in Varusis arsinole. The reason being is that the additional arrows will stack his blight witch is usefull in combow with his E and his R expesouly in team fights. Hurican also makes farming so much faster it might even be worth it to finish that first instead of blood thirster depending on how the game is going.
Nashers tooth is another questionable item in this build after all his ap ratio isn't all that high and blight isn't really a game changer. However the 50 AS should put you some where near max as and the 20% CDR is great for spamming abilities and the 15 +15% bonus magic damage is worth it in the long run.
THese are the most common spells in an adc's arsinole and I believ they are the best ones. Flash can help you get in to secure a kill or out to denie one and ignite will usually gaerntee you a from the grave kill.
Team Work(Useing your ult.)
It's inportant to remember that his ult can be the deciding factor for a team fight use it to soon and you only hit oneor two people use it to late and no ones alive to udalise it.
Late game if you are at least up to the first half of ruined king and the enymy team is distracted enough its easy to sneak through the jungle and steal an inhib or a tower thats at low health and get out before you get into to much trouble. This can be dangerouse and usualy only works once because when your aponit knowsyou have the damage to kill a turet that was at half health they start to get jumpy when you vanish from the map.
