After months of thinking, i figured Varus could work pretty well with Malady + Black Cleaver.
His w synergizes extremely well with Malady and BC since you need atleast 3 hits to use it to the best effect (actually 4, but lets ignore the 4th stack of malady for now)

I already tried it out once, it went pretty well, but im not quite sure what runes and masteries to use (currently ad-marks + quints, mr/lvl-glyphs, armor-seals and 21/9/0, so pretty standard ad-carry builds)


about the itembuild, i think, frozen mallet is a must-buy, but i dunno about the rest. i considered pd, bloodrazor and even bloodthirster.



could someone help me out a bit?

I've gone on-hit Varus;
Malady,
Tiamat,
Wits End,
Madreds,
Ionic spark,
Boots.

It works WONDERFULLY.

Sounds like a pretty fun build as long as you don't get too agressive and get SQUISHED... although you lose the focused damage in exchange for the splash of Ionic Spark and Tiamat when you could have more direct damage with Cleaver or BT or IE... Makes taking an individual champ down much harder. I like the Frozen Mallet idea posted above you... there's nothing like being attacked by a champ like varus and not being able to get away... and if you manage to, he fires his long range arrow and you're dead... I guess if the enemy bunches up a lot your build works but I wouldn't recommended it unless that is the case. Obviously, we have to use our judgment every game we play.

For fun yes but the real problem is that with a build like that you will not be doing damage worthy of a AD carry and this will hinder your team

Note: You can still win building this way im just saying its not optimal

Interesting build, however you have zero sustain. I'm guessing you pair yourself with a Soraka to help with this?

I'm very interested in AP Varus as well (or will be after the next patch when they buff his AP ratios a bit). Have you tried that any?

I was so excited when he first got released but I hardly play him anymore. He feels so one-dimensional as a regular ADC...poke with Q, stand around...poke with Q, stand around...poke with Q....etc etc.

*edit* Working overtime. Wrote it like a business e-mail.
