A Short Introduction



Hey guys, I'm Merv, y'all can call me Senpai. I main the AD Carry role. I have been playing Vayne ever since she replaced my previous main ADC.

This guide is based on my preference on my style of playing Vayne and learning points I have learnt while playing this great champion. This build is actually legit, I have used it in many ranked games to carry my team to Victory. Do not take anything that is somehow (idk how) offensive to you lightly. You don't have to listen to me though, I'm not Doublelift Senpai or Wildturtle Senpai.

This guide consists of detailed information about all you need to know while playing Vayne including Summoner Spells, Item Build, Abilities, Runes and Masteries. Well, some videos will be linked below for those who learn better by watching.

Purge With Silver



Vayne is a ranged Hyper Carry, ADC, Marksman, Super Late Gamer, Good Snowballer that will carry your entire team to victory, especially if its late game. She does really good DPS to single targets, she relies on her basic attacks more than her abilities. Vayne isn't like a prefect champion, so it does have weaknesses, but also has strengths. Her W passive, Silver Bolts, gives her tons of damage, especially in late game as it scales with 8% of target's health at max level.

Pros:

-> Auto-attack reset, Tumble
-> Knock-back stun Condemn
-> Invisibility from her Ultimate , Final Hour when you Tumble
-> Mid to late game, she becomes assassin-like
-> Good chaser Night Hunter
-> True Damage Silver Bolts
-> Easy to kite enemies

Vayne is not an ADC with a huge range, giving her an disadvantage in lane, she wouldn't be able to last hit or poke the enemy if they have a longer range. But her Tumble makes farming a lot easier, you'll never miss a creep! Vayne is the few ADC with hard CC. Condemn can stun anybody (if it collides with a solid object) or least knock away anybody harassing you. She has a ton of damage with and without AD items as her W ability, Silver Bolts, does true damage (that's why some people play Top Lane Vayne). She has high initial damage early (if you get your third hit), middle and late game. Lastly, her passive, Night Hunter, allows her to chase easily and Final Hour grants more movement speed invisibility when you Tumble (she clearly is batwoman). Vayne is a great champion to play.


Cons:

-> Pretty short ranged
-> Not easy to hit the third hit of Silver Bolts
-> Needs good positioning
-> Difficult to learn
-> No "poke"

Wayne has cons too, every good champion always has flaws. As mentioned, she doesn't have the biggest and longest (omg what) range and have a pretty low base attack speed, she pretty much gets zoned and lose pretty often in the early game. She loses a lot of trades unless she can land her Silver Bolts. Her positioning is the key of a good Vayne, super important, which makes her not easy to master as a poorly executed Condemn can literally save an enemy. With a good position, she can Condemn her enemy into a solid object to get stunned. The worst part of Vayne is that she must rely on her teammates early game, if they lose their lane and Vayne (super weak early) loses too, then the game is an instant GG. She also isn't the easiest champion to master, like failing to execute a good Condemn or not knowing when to activate your Final Hour could lead to flaming teammates, and will affect your gameplay.
