My introduction

Good day, for the first of the firsts of first ¨IAMNOTANAMERICAN¨ so don´t judge my guide in matters of grammar and that kind of stuff... soo that being said... i will go on the way to try to explain why i made this guide and what im trying to achieve with it.


I feel like there is no good guide for vayne out there, most of you are actually thinking right now (WAIT!!! i actually got my build and skill sequence from moba and im actually succesfull with it...) if that´s the case fine i recomend you to keep doing what is working for you it don´t matter if ¨x¨guy says wait THIS IS THE ULTIMATE BUILD FOR VAYNE AND ALL OF OTHERS ARE TRASHHH!! if your succesfull with your AP vayne thats fine with me...

If you are looking for the classic build of boots-> sheen-> trinity force-> etc... then NO this is not the guide for you.Im not saying that that build is bad or something i just think that it doesn´t make vayne give the best of her.


who am i you say? well... i dont have much time playing actually i got like 2-3 months playing leagues! but that doesnt mean i have not understand the mechanics of the game and all the juice that vayne offers is just so amazing and impressive if you can exploit that.

Vayne, The Night Hunter

The world is not always as civilized as people might think. There are still those who would follow the blackest paths of magic and become corrupted by the darker powers that flow through Runeterra. Shauna Vayne knows this fact well. As a young privileged girl in the heart of Demacia's elite, her father tried to convince her of the constabulary's ever-vigilant eye. Young and naïve, she truly believed that her world was one of perfect safety, until one night, when a twisted witch took interest in her father. The malevolent woman overcame her father's conciliar guard, then tortured her family before murdering them. The young Shauna escaped only by hiding herself and then fleeing once the hag had departed, plagued by the screams of her loved ones as she ran. A burning hatred was born in her that day, one that could never be denied. Vayne was able to take care of herself using her father's money, and she began to train as soon as an instructor would have her as a student. By the time she was a fully grown woman, she had become a grim warrior. However, the fields of battle were not to be her home. Demacia needed a protector, one who hunted those lost to the darkness. Shauna used her family's contacts to become the first Night Hunter, and now her prowess is the stuff of legends. It is said that those who practice the black arts quake when they hear that the Night Hunter is on the prowl. Despite her crusade, Shauna has looked at the League of Legends in horror. There are champions who have clearly lost themselves to the blackest of magics, and who have been embraced within the League even though they should be put down for the safety of all. The time has come for the Night Hunter to execute her secret mission – to purge the League of Legends. Not all shadows are to be feared. At least, if Vayne has her way.

Armor Pen, armor pen and more armor pen... AD MARKS YOU SAY? really? only for .95 ad mmm let put this straight armor pen marks give you about 1.66666 armor pen vs .95 ad!!! with that being said... i'll only recommend ad runes if you are an advanced player who wants to get fed early with at least 4-6 kills and that will probably work nicely if you have a full AD runeset.


i use Cooldown reduce runes just to get that extra bonus on my cooldowns giving me the chance to spam (wisely) tumble and my ultimate... even tho thats my personal choice, i would also recomend Flat MR runes... not much of a choice in this part of the runeset.


My personal choice is Flat Defense runes, why?, because vayne is a very squishy champion and this combined with those nice 6 mastery points added in defense will give you a nice boost and a better chance to stand in lane at least until you hace 1195 gold ( for the seal item).

I roll with the pretty standar 21/6/3 dps champion it have work great for me, i wouldnt even think of not working for you.

I have seen vaynes running with a 9/21/0 or even a 20/9/1 but i got my doubts about those builds you can give them a try but i dont recomend for begginers.

I start with dorans blade... you cant really ask for more it has everything vaynes needs to do a nice amount of damage plus that nice little health boost not even mentionating the 3% lifesteal (lol)... you can actually start with boots and 3 health pots to try and get your core items but i only recomend this for the more advanced vayne players.

Try to stay in lane until you have atleast 1195 gold so you can b and buy seal, with seal you will exploit silver bolts very well in early game and also giving you a nice Movement speed boost ( so you dont miss the boots) and a nice crit bonus. I recomend you to stay in lane until you have around 1500 gold so you can buy your boots also.

At this point i have atleast 2 kils giving me the chance to rush madreds wich its the item you need to start really rapin early-midgame (REALLY DOING WORK).

YOUR CORE ITEMS ARE VAMPIRIC SCEPTER+ PHANTOM DANCER+ BERSERKER BOOTS+ MADREDS... at this point your next item should and will be pretty situacional... i mean depending on the way you8r team is doing or if the other team is weak or have a flaw, etc, etc, etc.... You will have to use your mind and notice what's actually going around in the game and do something about it or atleast try to.

Situational items

If you are rollin' and they be hatin' i recomend to rush black cleaver or bloodthrister
Black cleaver applys for very tankish teams or squishy teams...actually i was thinking to add black cleaver to my core items but its not an item that is ALWAYS THE BEST CHOICE like phantom, Madreds, etc.
