  • Hybrid Varus basic Info

    Hybrid Varus is a build that is often looked down on but has some amazing power late game due to the AP while utilizing AD to sustain an acceptable early game.



    Very powerful late game

    Blighted Quiver chunks enemies for 24+% of enemy health

    Can wipe out tanks like squishies


    Early game is a little harder

  • Items

    I recomend Starting with your Boots of speed, and 3 health pots. From there i usually go Berserkers Greaves and save up my gold to buy Bilgewater Cutlas, after which i buy Guinsoo's Rageblade, always starting with the ad parts because most people expect AD Varus anyways, might as well give them the illusion, not like many people outside of ranked buy magic resist anyways. The next item i get is the Stinger for the attack speed and cdr, and follow that up closely with Hextech Revolver, and Fiendish codex. Your next step is to Upgrade to Hextech Gunblade and Nashor's Tooth, opening up your slots for Malady and Black Cleaver or Madreds, i find those 2 to be very situations and have never had a game go long enough to get the last item.


    This is the most effective way of building i have found although if you find, a more effective route for the items i will definately try  it out and make changes to my guide for it.

  • Runes and Mastery

    I go with 9 Attack Speed Marks, 9 Ability Power per level Seals, and Glyphs, and 3 Attack damage Quintessence to help early game.


    I use a standard cookie cutter AD Carry 21/0/9 Mastery Build
