Introduction

Hello, This is my first build guide and I want to make it short and to the point. To start off, Varus is one of the funnest characters in my opinion to master, and once you have him down good enough, you can even win 4v5s.

Runes

This rune set Is what I use, just mainly for attack speed and a little bit of magic resistance to go help against those mid characters like cassiopia or leblanc.

Pros/Cons

Pros


Amazing dps with passive
Insanely long range
Great escape methods

Cons


Very Squishy early game
Gets focused first alot
Hard to master his stacks

Skill Sequence

By maxing his E first it allows for easy harassing when used properly, you'll never even get it.
Now when it comes to his W its passive stacks. When attacking a champion you want to get at least 2 stacks of your W before using your E to deal some major damage.
Some may enjoy to max his Q first. I dont agree with this technique because it shows to be a terrible harassing method in mid to late game. But again, After you attack and get a couple stacks, use your E and Q after getting 2-3 stacks each time.
Varus's Ultamate doesn't prove to be the best, but it does come in handy when used properly in a team fight. Stack it on the enemy's main attacker and have your team focus for a very fast kill.

(ALWAYS MAKE SURE YOU GOT STACKS ON YOUR ENEMYS BEFORE USING SKILLS)

Farming

Varus's passive allows him to get attack speed upon killing an enemy, OR and enemy minion. Comes in handy while harassing to last hit a minion and then rush your enemy with E. Don't use your skills to farm, his passive works good enough. He depends on his mana for a fight, and he doesn't have much.
