Introduction

Hi there i am skyvan first of all i know what your thinking varus jungle? my answer is it works just try it. This is my first build guide so advice/criticism is welcome. Ps: get a good leash.


Guide Top

Runes

The runes i have chosen i use on most characters i jungle with and ranged ad movement speed is good for both.


Guide Top

Masteries

21-9-0 i have yet to try other ways but the 0-9-0 is needed to be able to kill the jungle pre wriggles.

Items

This part is tricky there is no set item route you need to adapt to any game. The starting item is experimental a few things may work but cloth is safe and pots are needed. Its also possible to go without the wriggles but i use it on all junglers free wards are great. Also it can help to get hp pots if you go back for hp or boots get a pot or two. After wriggles pretty much just build varus the way he loves it damage and damage but adapt to the enemies i like to use defensive items once i have secured some nice damage items or you will get focused and die doing nothing for your team.

Skill Sequence

Ok well you can start with w or q with a good leash it wont matter w gives more damage on each hit so i prefer it then get q next and then w again for more damage output, then obviously you need your slow for ganking. I put in to get w again unless you have razer's or wriggles then you can start maxing q i get w high early because you need it for the stack damage pre wriggles.

Summoner Spells

Ghost or flash work i just prefer ghost on varus for running or catching.
Personally you need either or so there's not many options.

Creeping / Jungling

Start with blue and a good leash move on to wolves remember to use the 3 stacks on w or you will die 3 stacks q 3 stacks e repeat>(charging q full is worth it)> wraiths golems red smiting blue and red if you don't have enough hp for red after golems b and get boots and any hp pots you can 5 hp pot start should have covered the buff run and then you should be ganking anyway.

Pros / Cons

Pros:
CC
Damage
Fast Mover
Wears no Pants

Cons:
Early jungle can be hard if not done right.
May get killed when ganking lol

Summary

Thanks for reading my build like i said it is my first so it may not even be any good varus is not even my main but it worked well for me i just wanted to add something new and be apart of this great site that has helped me so much with builds for characters i don't know or normally play. I hope this build works for anyone who loves varus and or jungling.

Please give advice on any changes you think i need to make or any mistakes i made i may not be the most punctual person you know but i try.
