Vayne had heard the music,that dramatic music from dominion, and she instantly knew from the time the bridge became finished, that this was her JAM! Hello everybody, this is my guide that after playing many games of dominion i have found a wonderful build that I hope will help you in domininating your games. A little bit about myself i have been playing LoL for almost a year now and ever since Vayne came out i have always chosen her for any Ranged dps. With the release of Dominion Vayne can excel like when she was first released. And this is just my tips and tricks to help YOU play better as vayne.

Greater mark of desolation- These are possibly the best runes you could get with vayne. + Dominion gives you a FREE 15% ARMOUR PENETRATION synergyzing well.

Greater Seal of Focus- Dominion gives you increased mana regen so mana is not a problem + there are health and mana packs around the map. USE THEM. These runes give you some pretty nice reduced cooldowns.

Greater Glyph of warding- Those pesky AP champions, reduce their damage with this rune.

Greater Quintessence of Desolation- Much like Greater mark of Desolation, Syngeryzes well with dominion. Remember armour penetration runes = greater damage every time.

The standard masteries.

Taking higher in Offence for many reasons.

Increased Attack speed, Even MOAR armour penetration, Increased damage both on crits and regular autoattacks. And just 1 tiny bit of cd reduction to go in there. Synergyzes well with your Seals of Focus.


Going 3 in reduced time of death because THIS! IS! DOMINION! You WILL die its a event that you cannot avoid. The key to dominion is to control the points and its hard to when your sitting in the death screen, They help you get back in that fight.

Besides the recommended build there are some other things you could do.In case that they are SO TANKY that you cant do sack and all that armour penetration you already recieve just isnt enough, THIS is the item you need. It wrecks tanks, squishies, you name it. Just use this instead of the ionic spark.

Need that extra extra extra survivability? This item gives you a SACK LOAD of health and theres a great bonus to it as well. It comes with a FREE SLOW!, QQ'ing as you watch that teemo runs away and with 200 healthyou cant keep up with him? this item will solve all your problems + it gives you some attack damage. Replace Entropy with this item if you need too.

The Banshees veil. A free save from you going down that poop chute. This will save your sack so many times you will think you are olaf. A all around item that you can get if they are super ap and you just need that extra sheild.

Skill Sequence

I max out Tumble first for a reason. Now your no gangplank but you still can crit with this and its got a pretty low cooldown. Jarvan ult you? Get the hell outta dodge with that tumble.

And at level 4 i get condem for a reason as well. Dominion has SO MANY walls and terrain around this gives you an almost guarrenteed stun. But i dont max this out until last because for one, Silver bolts just own everybody. And second, Its not a huge damage dealing spell and is only supposed to be used to stun.

Silver bolts I max second because THEY JUST OWN. With a set true damage deal + percents of their max health = damage that cannot be avoided. You could have 1k armour and if vayne gets 3 hits on you consecutivly your still getting dealt a set amount of damage. Nothing can hold this back.

Your almighty ult, gives you extra damage, Triple movement speed from your passive, and lets not forget the special stealth you get when you tumble. Use tumble with your ult up to catch up to that last person, come in for a gank, escape. You can do anything you want to with this given you have the imagination and ability to do it.

Beginning game almost nobody can be faster than you with this. Its not the best passive as you lose it facing away from enemies but this will get you kills,

Summoner Spells

I go the standard flash. Ultimate escape tool why wouldnt you use this?
Use this on their ranged dps in the back and laugh as they struggle to deal above 40. Its great for stopping somebody from catching up to you or getting away from you.
Ah yes Ghost. Its perfectly viable and i only use flash and exhaust as in personal preference. In Dominion though this can sometimes be SO USEFUL to get to those points faster than the other team.

I guess you could use this not recommended though. I mean why would you sure give a minion steroids and let it free farm for you but in a 1v1 or in a teamfight or holding a point when will this help you? Plus if an evemy champion finds it say goodbye to that minion.

Dominion tips.

Dominion is entirly different to anything we have seen before. Your job is not what you would think. Holding points is ALL IMPORTANT. Getting kills is just a upside. You are pretty much going around making sure they dont backdoor the hell out of your points and helping where needed. You see a 4 man push bot and only 2 of your teamates are there? You ult, tumble in, aim for their squishys. Get that kill and then back up if you need to. You make sure they cant push a point anywhere. Some other dominion tricks are sending 4 men top and having a heim go bot to hold. ITS A DOUCHE MOVE but you will get that windmill first.
