Hey. New player here trying to get better with Varus.

There are a few builds I've seen, some rush attack speed (phantom dancer) and some rush AD such as bloodthirster. I'm not sure which one is best for a level 13 player. What do you guys recommend?

I would rush AD to help with farming, since you are new to the game. It doesn't have to be a full The Bloodthirster though; a Vampiric Scepter will do the job nicely until you get the B. F. Sword for Infinity Edge, and then you can start setting up for your Phantom Dancer. The thing to remember is Varus gains attack speed with each kill, including minion kills, from Living Vengeance.

Of course, I'm not well trained in the ways of AD Carry. I'd hold back on following my advice until you can get more experienced players to confirm it XD

Is it best to start with Doarn's blade instead of Boots of Speed and 3x health pots? And do you rush berserker greaves before BF sword?

Yes.

Depends how much money you have. Upgrading boots is unnecessary if you have enough money for a bigger item.

Also, Blade of the Ruined King is broken since the last patch. Rush it, then something like Zeal, Infinity Edge, Phantom Dancer, Last Whisper, Warmog's Armor/other defensive item. Still testing stuff, AD itemization changed quite a bit recently.

No need to get Bloodthirster at all now imo. Ruined King now does everything it does better.

BotRK is likely to get nerfed however. Using Bloodthirster instead is still okay and Bloodthirster rush was normal up until yesterday.

Ya it's probably fine, but it means you sacrifice either IE crits, PD AS and crits (which means sacrificing IE crits too tbh) LW ArP or a defensive item. And I don't really wanna give up any of that. Still not completely sure on this though, the patch was only yesterday and people haven't had time to fully adapt builds yet.

I used to go The Bloodthirster + Runaan's Hurricane on him, actually. Guess the new botrk might change that a bit though.

Thanks to Hoppermh for the signature!

Following the rush BotRK build, at 26 minutes into game I was at only 130 AD without phantom dancer. Isn't that relatively low?
