Threats to Vayne with this build
|Miss Fortune||Most of the people say, Vayne is bad against MF. But I dont think that. You can tumble out of her Ultimate and outdamage her then. Just dont get harrassed by her Q.|
my name is Teriall, i play on EUW in the Gold Division. I only play ADC because of the potential to carry the game. If you are fed the game could be over for the enemys. I played Vayne for a long time, so now i know how to play her right. So now i share my knowledge with you all. I will keep updating this guide!
For success, read everything.
What to do with Vayne?
Vayne is a short ranged ADC with high "Carry-the-whole-game" potential. She is weak in laning phase but very strong to Mid- and Lategame. In laneing phase you should focus on farming, because of her weak early. Champions like Caitlyn will take you out of the game and you´ll be useless later. So try to get as much farm as possible. She is a champion who is depended on positioning. To make it easier you get a nice skill called Tumble. At level 5 you can roll all over the ground every 2 seconds.
Your skill Condemn is more useful than you think. It will save you so many times and u will get a lot of kills because of this Badboy. When a champion is in front of a wall, just use it. It has a "high" cooldown but just do it.
Why should I play her? (Pro´s / Con´s)
- Vayne is one of the strongest Lategame Champions in the game
-Has a very high kiting potential against Champions with no close up, dash or slow
-If you do well in laning phase you will rule in lategame
-Has the potential to Hyper-Carry
-Low mana costs
-You are able to 1v2 1v3... with the right mechanics
- Night Hunter allows to to chase down almost everyone
-True Damage with her Silver Bolts
-Stealth and AD-Buff with Final Hour and Tumble
-If your other Lanes feed the wrong champions like [Fizz] or LeBlanc your useless.
-Even if you are not fed you will be focused often.
- Vayne has the weakest earlygame of all ADC´s
-CC-Supports like Leona and Thresh will make your life hard.
Greater Glyph of Magic Resist: It will give you extra Magic Resist for ADC´s and Supports who harrass with AP damage like Tristana.
Greater Mark of Attack Damage: It will give you extra AD for Lasthitting and Trading
Greater Seal of Armor: It will give you extra Armor, so you dont have to go back after 3 enemys´ ADC autoattacks
Greater Quintessence of Attack Damage: It will give you a nice amount of AD for lasthitting and trading.
Greater Quintessence of Life Steal: The runes got nerfed but it is still good for a little sustain in Lane.
As Vayne you use basic ADC Masteries.
- Fury : A little Attack Speed to get your Stacks on Silver Bolts
- Butcher : Not very usefull but still viable for Lasthitting
- Expose Weakness : A little extra damage on trading
- Brute Force : More Damage!
- Feast: A little sustain
- Martial Mastery : More Damage!
- Executioner : To finish the Champions
- Warlord : More Damage!
- Dangerous Game : A little sustain while farming champions ;)
- Frenzy: A nice little buff for Attackspeed
- Devastating Strikes : Some Defense
- Havoc : More Damage!
- Block : Not very usefull but can save your life.
- Recovery : It helps you a little to stay on the lane longer
- Unyielding : Look Recovery
- Veteran Scars : You can manage 1 more Autoattack till you die.
- Hardiness : More Armor!
Doran's Blade: It´s by far the best Starting Item for the most ADC´s. It gives you AD, Lifesteal and Health.
Health Potion: This Badboy helps you to stay longer on the lane.
Warding Totem: Keeps you eyes on Sidebushes on the Lane.
Blade of the Ruined King: This one will give you everything you need, Attack Speed, Lifesteal and Damage. Also it gives you %-Damage and a slow and heal.
Berserker's Greaves: Allows you to stack Silver Bolts faster.
Phantom Dancer: MORE CRITS, MORE ATTACKSPEED: A DEADLY COMBINATION
Infinity Edge: Gives you more Crit and Critdamage. If you hit your enemy with Silver Bolts and a Crit, it will hurt him like hell!
Last Whisper: If the enemy stack armor (They should against Vayne), you will melt their armor like butter.
Youmuu's Ghostblade: Gives you extra Critchance and Damage. The additional Armor penetration and speedbuff is also nice.
ATTENTION: ONLY BUY DEFENSIVE ITEMS IF YOU ARE NOT THE ONLY DAMAGE OUTPUT IN YOUR TEAM
Guardian Angel: Gives you a 2nd chance if you get focused.
Warmog's Armor: If you have more Health you wont get focused so much.
Banshee's Veil: If the Enemy Blitzcrank won´t stop grabing you. This is the right item
Mercurial Scimitar: If the enemys have much CC and keep casting it on you, just activate this item and laugh
Randuin's Omen: More Armor and a slow when Autoattacking you. Should be fine.
You can use this Spell to engage, disengage, close up and much more. No need to explain
Since a buff on heal it is better than Barrier, you can use this to help your support to get away from ganks or yourself get away or get the extra health you need to win the fight.
This spell is situational, you need this when the enemy support is a CC-Monster like Leona, Annie and Thresh. This will save your life more than one time then.
Ignite is a nice extra damage but I would prefer to take a Support with ignite.
How to farm?
Farming with Vayne is easy with these runes.
Caster Minion: He dies from 1 turret shot and 1 auto attack.
Melee Minion: He dies from 2 turret shots and 1 auto attack.
Canon Minion: Make sure you ALWAYS use Tumble to get the lasthit. It is just safer when you use it.
Tips & Tricks
-If you get one stack of Silver Bolts on your enemy, try to shoot 2 more times to get the extra damage. But only if its safe!
-Only use Condemn when there is a structure behind the enemy. In very rare cases you can use it to execute
-You can Tumble between your autoattacks to get a reset and shoot faster. I use it most of the time to get a 3rd stack of Silver Bolts
-If there is a nuke champion like LeBlanc, try to always go in team after laning phase, you can´t do anything when they find you.
-You can´t Tumble through walls, BUT you can Tumble through players walls like Jarvan IV or Anivia
Vayne is a "Feed or get fed" Champion. If you dont do well, you will be useless for your team. But if you play well you will make the enemy team fear you. I play Vayne because of her Tumble Mechanics. You can kite very easy and do some awesome plays.
