Hey guys, was just looking to mess around in a few normals with AP Varus. I thought I would max W no question, but a lot of builds I've seen have maxing Q or E before W. So just curious, what is the best option? Or if it depends on situations, when should I max which? LOL

Maybe max E into W into Q? I saw people do this, E gives you more base damage, then ofc W and Q will be rather useless, so why bother?

You can go AD with CDR boots and spam Piercing Arrow for constant 500+ dmg poke. It's actually more viable imo.

For AP I believe the skilling order is W, E, Q, as E procs the W stacks much easier.

NorthernRedStar is right. CDR/AD/Armor Pen varus is likely more viable in the mid lane. I'm an avid fan of AP Varus, but he does have his downfalls. You wanna max W as it is your main source of magical damage, however, no matter what you do, your laning damage is pitiful unless you use AD runes and max Q (Your damage will still kind of suck assuming you are running AP masteries still).

General build I use is;

Sorcerer's Shoes
Nashor's Tooth
Rabadon's Deathcap
Zhonya's Hourglass
Void Staff
Lich Bane

Depends on the matchup. If you can easily get stacks off your opponent max w. If you're having difficulty getting stacks then max e.
