- His CD's are much shorter thanks to Nashoor's Tooth.
- The damage from W will be more significant.
- His ultimate would do a little more damage.
- Still a strong AD carry.
- Low Health.
- If caught without summoners or ult he is done for.
- Positioning is everything
- Skill shots must be hit to do maximum damage.
By building Wriggle's Lantern it gives him lifesteal and damage just to start out the game and it gives him the ability to stay in lane longer, the armor is not bad either.
The Nashoor's Tooth is the item which will inspire a lot of questions and comments. I like this item because it gives a good amount of attack speed/mana regeneration/ability power. The ability power is at about 65 and that much AP allows his W to increase by 1% which may not sound like a lot but it stacks up. His ultimate also benefits from the AP and with the CD reduction his abilities can be cast more often to trigger his W effect.
The Bloodthirster add's much needed AD and lifesteal.
Phantom Dancer is really valuable in that it gives Varus much needed movement speed and attack speed.
The Last Whisper and the Infinity Edge are for later. Choose whichever is more needed but the sequence in which they are placed I think to be a good one. I would sell the Wriggle's Lantern once you can buy the final item , be it Last Whisper or Infinity's Edge.
Teleport could be valuable depending on the player.
There are some which I would not recommended on an AD carry such as Surge, Promote, Revive, Clarity, or Clairvoyance.
