Item Build Description

Additional information on the items

Beforehand let me give you detailx WHEN YOU PICK YOUR BUILD

BuildRequirement of draft
Lethality3 enemy champ are squishy ( KatarinaKatarina mid lane, EzrealEzreal duo lane, LuxLux support for instance)
APC4 of your team draft are AD ( BraumBraum support , YasuoYasuo mid lane, DariusDarius baron lane , ViVi jungle )
On-hit2 enemy champ is bruiser, their support is a tank, your mid laner is an AP champion ( Lee SinLee Sin jungle, NasusNasus baron lane, LeonaLeona support )


Okay that's getting out of our way, let's start.

If you're on on-hit  buy Long SwordLong Sword , APC buying Amplifying TomeAmplifying Tome , lethality buying Sapphire CrystalSapphire Crystal

you need to get your first core item as soon as possible as lethality, but for on-hit and APC try to get 2 components of your first core item.

at minute 6 i expect you guys already have your first core item, tier 2 boots (i mean upgraded) / if needed tier 3 boots (i mean enchanted)  and going for your second core item, and finish up as soon as possible.

low range champ like her cannot eat your ability early on, you have superior range and ability. however, do not take her on 1 vs 1, you will die instead.

and try to finish the game as soon as possible, you can't fight her late game.

Varus

Varus' laning partner

LeonaLeona absolute disgusting support, buff after buff, her range on Zenith BladeZenith Blade is huge right now and you can even make your lane more lethal potent with all of her abilities plus SunlightSunlight

CERTIFIED BANGER WITH VARUS
BraumBraum VarusVarus able to have bonus attack speed easily to proc Concussive BlowsConcussive Blows and his ultimate, Glacial FissureGlacial Fissure is one of the best engage ult in the game.

CERTIFIED BANGER WITH VARUS
LuxLux / SeraphineSeraphine If you see auto filled support, you gonna see either SeraphineSeraphine or LuxLux . LuxLux provide roots and slow that you able to capitalize with your all in combo.
SonaSona Well not too much to said here, SonaSona offers some healing and movement speed which are nice bonus considering VarusVarus weakness is no mobility.
MalphiteMalphite Just don't play MalphiteMalphite support for God's sake.
JannaJanna One of the best disengage champion, JannaJanna can make VarusVarus easier to escape with TailwindTailwind and also giving him AD boost from Eye Of The StormEye Of The Storm . however it is preferable if paired with JannaJanna using APC or On Hit build.
Varus

Early - Mid

Okay. here. we. go.

VarusVarus require good laning phase so try to NOT FEEDING EARLY ON. you need to getting more last hit so you able to have Living VengeanceLiving Vengeance keep proc for ypu and able to threaten your opponent's duo lane. use your Hail Of ArrowsHail Of Arrows to start engaging as the slow able to trigger WeaknessWeakness and also reducing healing in case of they gonna use healing for themselves. 

always keep an eye on their mid laner and jungler as you doesn't have escape capability outside [flash] . until minute 3:30 keep farming and getting components or first item core for the team fight.

when the team fight start, use your [varus:ult] so he / she cannot escape (as root mechanic doesn't allow you to using [flash] ) and finish your target using all the combo provided early on. use the power spike that Living VengeanceLiving Vengeance provide after take down (or even better, kill) to stack the blight into the next target and pop it with either Hail Of ArrowsHail Of Arrows or Piercing ArrowPiercing Arrow

Varus

Mid - Late

This is where VarusVarus power spike kicks in, especially the lethality VarusVarus .

you need to stay far from team fight and keep proc your blight and also use the attack speed bonus via Living VengeanceLiving Vengeance and engage with Chain Of CorruptionChain Of Corruption . by to by, when using Hail Of ArrowsHail Of Arrows or Chain Of CorruptionChain Of Corruption you are able to boost your team's damage capability because they can trigger WeaknessWeakness if you using that minor rune. 5% damage is heavy bonkers i would like to say as basically poor man ChampionChampion rune for everyone.

if you see any probability that you can find most valuable target and sure you can pop your target down, use all in combo immediately so when a team fight break out, your team have an edge against your opponent.

Tips

  1.  Always remember that Blighted QuiverBlighted Quiver has active component that make your auto attack more powerful and enchanting your Piercing ArrowPiercing Arrow . it's insane a lot of people forgot about this one.
  2. Chain Of CorruptionChain Of Corruption works like this. the one getting the first root will get 3 blights, however for the one that surrounds the first target will get two blights so you need to auto attack them once to get them into three blights.
  3. Protobelt EnchantProtobelt Enchant and immediately Chain Of CorruptionChain Of Corruption is good to caught them off guard and have small to zero chance to react.
