Not Updated For Current Season
The masteries shown here are not yet updated for the current season, the guide author needs to set up the new masteries. As such, they will be different than the masteries you see in-game.
A little intro. I havent been playing vayne for a terribly long time, about a week. Ive tried out alot of builds from this site and custom builds, and this is the best of both imo. The build focuses on AS more then anything else because more AS = more silver bullets and more true damage. And once you get deeper into the build and get bloodthirster, you really start to eat people alive. Very strong build and i have done very good using it.
I chose the masteries that i did for several reasons. I put the ones in attack to maximize the damage output of vayne, these masteries being the ones that do that in the best way. Then i decided to put the points in defence rather then in utility to maximize her survivability without sacrificing any dmg from items. It works very well.
I picked armor pen, armor, and cd reduction runes for a few reasons. Armor pen because more dmg = win. armor because more armor early game (and mid to late game it also helps) means your gonna be better at harassing and staying longer in your lane. I like cd reduction runes because 1.5 sec cd tumble is really great.
Not really much to say here. Try out the items and youll see why i picked them. Grab sheen as your second item because it helps so much. Sheen's ability combines with vaynes tumble very nicely. From real early game to late game, sheen's ability is never wasted and it is a part of trinity force, the main item in vaynes build!
Max tumble asap. Grab condemn whenever you cant get tumble or Final hour. Finally maxxing silver bolts as the last ability. Tumble is the core ability of vayne and without it, she wouldnt be good.
Take ghost for sure. that spell is great for anything and with it NO ONE will escape you. I take flash next because flash always gets me out of stick situations. Them two combined is a very good combination.
Vayne does great burst damage from far away, has a pushback which also stuns and can go stealth. She is a great team player and a very good asset to your team. When playing vayne in team fights its always important to stay in the back so you dont get killed because with this build your a tad squishy. But if you catch someone straying off frim the team fight, if played right, vayne can be virtually unkillable 1v1. so during team fights try to solo out one person at a time and burst them down.
Pros / Cons
-high AS combined with LS keeps you alive nicely
-may be targeted because of high dmg output in team fights
So all in all this build had worked out very nicely for me. Vayne is a strong character and if played right is unstoppable. You need to be smart, and not over-commit to chasing kills. If you play with your head and think things through, not just running into the fray, your almost always gonna go positive. Im not saying this is the best way to play vayne and im not saying you shouldnt do what you do when you play her, im im just simply sharing a build that has got work done for me. Maybe it will do the same for you.
