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.
Vayne was a heavily played champ in S2 but she seems less popular in S3 seeing that her ability to shred health from her silver bolts is now available through a BotRK and her range is awful. However, i believe personally that she is still one of the strongest ADCs available due to her invisibility, her extra 50% damage when she tumbles, and her STUN AS AN ADC, not to mention her super steroid ult that makes her a RAPE MACHINE.
Low Early Damage
Must Be VEEEEERY Close to Enemies
Good Base Attack Speed
Can Hyper Carry Late Game
Can Shred Dragon or Baron quickly
AD Quints- Standard for and ADC, its free AD so why not
AD Marks- same argument as before, you could go armor pen but against ADCs that seems unnecessary
Armor Seals- Makes the enemy ADC do less damage end of story
Scaling MR Glyphs- They give you the most MR possible and you generally aren't laning against AP carries, so only bring flat for vayne Mid or against AP trist or something.
There are generally 2 ways to build Vayne, the AWESOME GOSU VAYNE way (korean vayne), orthe lame suckish season 2 underpowered way for ***s (american vayne). It really just comes down to whether you buy a PD first (korean vayne) to synergize with early silver bolts, or whether you build a BT early to exploit the early tumble poke. This guide focuses on Korean vayne because it is better. I also only put the GA on the build because apparently the way I usually build vayne (warmogs) is not for those that don't know what they're doing. If you really wanna go for a hyper carry vayne build and you're 30-0 then trade out the BotRK and IE for a sword of the divine and sword of the occult for the maximum damages (don't do that please its the cockiest build ever, nobody will speak to you ever again)
Always get W first with this build and max it first as well. Thats it. No Arguing. Just do it. starting q and maxing that first is only good with American vayne which sucks. A lot. so don't do it. my friend once told me i should max E first. i didn't queue with him for a week, don't do that either, its a 1 point wonder. W gives you true damage percent health damage, thats what makes vayne great especially if she can stun tumble and 3 shot the enemy ADC.
Flash- Always unless you have terrible reflexes and can't use it in which case don't play LoL.
Barrier- Eh, It'll save your life if you get ganked it's a good choice
Ignite- Only if you're a cocky little bugger that wants damage over life saving awesome things.
Ghost- Bronze V
Overall to make this build work you must farm hence the KOREAN vayne build because koreans are awesome and awesome people get 320 farm in 30 minutes. If you cant farm well, dont do this build it wont work, play JIV or some other champ that doesn't require farm, not Vayne. But if you CAN farm, then vayne is awesome, play her, carry, win, get to challenger, and mention me when you win the world championships.
Creeping / Jungling
Dont jungle Vayne, take late red buffs, take every dragon, but if you jungle vayne, I will come into that game as the enemy jungler and I will slaughter you over and over again until you understand not to play frieking jungle vayne. However if you were to jungle vayne still start silver bolts because it makes you farm better.
Use silver bolts to easily take cannon creeps and golems constantly if you're blue side. Farm all the time, even split push if you want (with WARDS) and get every creep.
