His questline is literally just a worse version of Leonhard's quest
Leonhard's quest just needed you to have a single pale tongue in your inventory, whether you won it from invasions, got it from some random dead body, or even farmed the darkwraiths.
Varre's quest requires you to have internet connection or even worse, an online subscription. There's also no pale tongue equivalent to show Varre you actually did invade since Fromsoft decided to cut covenants from the game, even though this is literally the game that had a lot of covenant potential. The tiny bone that is thrown to us is that you only have to invade 3 times in order for progress in his quest to count, but it has to be with other players, not stuff like the recusant requests
Oh well, at least doing Varre's quest gives you early access to the white mask for bleed builds, one of the best rune farming spots in the game (the poor albinaurics), a super early Mohg fight, and most importantly, you can get Varre's bouquet of flowers which he whacks you with (though I never see anyone use that weapon so I'm assuming that it sucks).
