Hi, yes, you need mana, plus the extra AP is very much worthwhile.
No mana, no procs, no damage, no kills.

Even if your build was viable, you would be better served to build a ManaMune as it would build faster, and would allow your attacks to do some damage while abusing all of that attack speed. Ontop of that, it would proc on all three of your Hunaan's.

I understand you're new, but please, for the love of god stop playing Ranked. You're just taking others down. Learn what works in the game before venturing on into ranked. This build has NO synergies built in and works terribly.

I'm assuming you don't understand how Varus works, his W stacks a massive amount of magic damage on top of his autoattack as it is.
Manamune, while giving AD, would contribute around the same damage to an AA but less to the blight stacks.

The proc from manamune would be worth using, sure, and it would build faster into a maramuna than the archangels would into seraphs.

I don't think you've honestly considered how well AP Varus works as a HP nuker especially with a good team to peel for him.

Edit: Also, manamune isn't yellow.

Blighted Quiver

PASSIVE: Varus' basic attacks deal bonus magic damage. They also apply Blight for 6 seconds, stacking up to 3 times.

ON-HIT MAGIC DAMAGE: 10 / 14 / 18 / 22 / 26 (+ 25% AP)
Varus' other abilities detonate Blight, dealing magic damage equal to a percentage of the target's maximum health per stack. This damage is capped at 360 against monsters.
MAGIC DAMAGE PER BLIGHT STACK: 2 / 2.75 / 3.5 / 4.25 / 5% (+ 2% per 100 AP) of target's max health
MAXIMUM MAGIC DAMAGE: 6 / 8.25 / 10.5 / 12.75 / 15% (+ 6% per 100 AP) of target's max health

EG: At level 18 - Seraphs embrace
~110 AP
2% per stack = 6% per proc

vs

EG: At level 18 - Maramuna
~55 bonus AD

Consider 2.5k HP
150 damage per blight trigger bonus from Seraphs

PLUS
On hit magic damage
25% of AP = ~25 magic damage per hit, is applied through runaans

End result

Seraphs
Consider 2.5k HP
225 damage on single target + ~75 damage on 2 other targets per 3 AA's

Manamune
Consider any HP
165 damage on single target + 82.5 damage on 2 other targets per 3 AA's

I got one thing that will blow your mind:
Infinity Edge, 1 Crit, 350 Damage on single target At level 10.

MIND BLOWN!

I don't think I was being clear then, 225 damage is only the damage that archangels would contribute.
3 hits from AD Varus at full build + trigger blight stack would be around 2.5k or so.
Assuming no armour and 100% crit chance (good luck)

3 hits from AP Varus + trigger blight stack (10% HP per stack)
That's 30% HP damage from 3 hits + trigger not including AA's
EG: 2.5k HP = 750 damage from blight + 200 from W passive on AA's + ~650 AD
= 1,600 damage to main target + 1,275 to 2 other targets
That's a damage output of ~4k in under 2 seconds

Obviously these are slightly unrealistic, but they are both just as unrealistic as the other.

Are you finished talking **** about something you clearly haven't tested?

Tell you what.... If you reach even Silver out of your placement series using this, I'll admit I was wrong.

He's just trolling. 'Yellow Varus' in response to the suddenly popular 'Blue Ezreal' build.

You could at least have made it a Red Varus. You know, bloodthirsters, phantom dancers, black cleavers?
