Introduction

I'm having trouble making my account on Mobafire... so this build will be posted anonymously, but will be updated on my account; Reikaenkami, once it begins to work.


Generally, everybody I know or have seen play Varus maxes their Q first, which I quite don't understand. It has great damage and long range, but it moves so slowly. But his W, he is an AD carry, and is meant to auto attack, right? It adds auto dps and once you pop your W, at rank 5 does 15% damage to your heath, not to mention the late game shred items, massive damage.

Farming

Simply last hit minions bot, and use your auto to harass every so often, Varus has a strong auto attack maxing his W, so they should get zoned pretty quickly, but don't be too aggressive, Varus works on burst early game.

Unique Skills

Varus' Q has long range and DPS, so most people max it first. But when it comes to DPS, auto attacking 3 times with your W, and then shooting your Q as fast as you can, without charging it, pops three stacks of your W for great damage. Maxing your W first also allows you to conserve a lot of mana, so you don't have to constantly go B.

Team Work

Varus is indeed the AD carry, and should be treated as one, stay in the back of the teamfight as best as you can. your ult does not insure a bounce, so use it when you can get a kill, but if a teamfight is brewing, save it.
