Threat Champion Notes
1
Ashe She can't get to you as you are too far away, just q her to death like any adc. This is the same for nearly any adc with no jump. Just q from really far away and they can't hurt you
1
Thresh Stay behind minions, far away and q. He can't hurt you

Why this build

It may be true that this is my first build guide, and that this may seem like a stupid idea, 40%cdr varus is a great way for beginners to learn adc. By Simply maxing your q damage and cdr, you can hide in the back line and spam q, the enemy can't hit you sand your arrows hit like a truck. (I'll try get images later).

Summoner Spells

I get flash and heal as these help me escape and disengage if I get caught out (you shouldn't if you ward properly and stay in the backline)
Other viable spells

Ghost: You can replace heal for this. The movespeed will last longer than heal, but in my opinion you only need the bonus movespeed for a short time and heal also heals you.

Clarity: People think it's bad (because it mainly is) but to start off you will probably miss a lot of q's and this varus build can be very mana hungry

Exhaust: It is ok for disengaging, but you will have to be pretty close to do this, so I think heal and flash is still better.
AVOID:

Ignite: Don't get me wrong, ignite is a great spell, but you will be too far away to activate, and you finish off people with your q anyway.

Smite: Why would you use this if you are not jungle, if you want it to be a good item, it requires an extra item which can have a better use for more ad, and you will be out of range as well.

Farming

You will have a lot of trouble farming with low attack speed. You will want to spam q and if you can hit minions with q as well do it (your q will do less damage to targets behind it and you can use this to make your opponents underestimate your damage). This will get you a bit of gold, and use your high damage to kill creeps then run away.
