So, I guess Riot will be changing Varus a tad so that hybrid is a bit more viable on him. Cool, cool.

So I was thinking about a slightly hybrid build, but it still functions as an AD carry.

berzerker's greaves
Infinity Edge
Phantom Dancer
Hextech Gunblade replaces The Bloodthirster
Last Whisper
Zhonya's Hourglass replaces Guardian Angel

Basically he does noticeable increased damage with his Blighted Quiver and Chain of Corruption.

What do you guys think?

No lifesteal is funny.

What would your mastery setup be?
I'm guessing you take all the AD stuff?

I would be interested in seeing how that
build works, haha.

Spell vamp seems like a horrible choice on him. The best hybrid item i can think of is rageblade but that's it.

All in all, lets stick to AD carry Varus. Hes awesome!

and sexy :P

@LZ: He has lifesteal from Hextech Gunblade. O.o

@OTG: Last Whisper + Zhonya's Hourglass sounds like a terrible combo if you ask me. Maybe you could get away with Gunblade + LW, but the more AP you build, the less that LW is going to do.

Unless he somehow scales off of AP but deals all physical damage, then I suppose it could work (still think GA > ZH tho). I haven't seen the supposed changes that you're referring to.

EDIT: I also agree with GMD.
Thanks to Xiaowiriamu for the sig!

Yes, and they both deal magic damage. Read my post more carefully before you start laughing.

Hybrid rarely works.
If you for some reason want to follow my ranked journey to gold, you can do it Here.

I am against asking for rep, only rep me if you think I contributed well or said something wise.

Well the way I look at it, the bonus magic damage is damage they probably arent building to counter if you're really fed. idk. it's just an idea.

I don't have any information on what changes they're making to Varus to warrant any hybrid build, I mean sure the Ult scales nicely off AP but I'm kinda meh about Blight.

If I were to go for a hybrid I think I'd drop LW and go for a Nashor's instead, maybe a Rageblade... Not much in the options department for a true Hybrid to start with, the question is how viable something like this is gonna be. The ult would hit like a rock, other than that it comes down to player skill.

Insanity; a perfectly rational adjustment to an insane world.
Thx to effinvices for the sig!

If I'd have to build AP to him, I'd go for item's like Nashor's Tooth or Malady probs for attack speed. Blighted Quiver would be the key to victory.
