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.
Hello and welcome to my Vayne guide. I would first like to start out and say that I am currently maining Vayne and have a very good knowledge of her mechanics. (She is also my favorite champion and I absolutlely love her) Playing Vayne I have done 10 winning streaks, carried countless ranked games, etc.
A big question that I get when I play games is, "Why don't you get sheen?!?!?!?! it's teh OP bro!"
- The reason I don't get sheen is because I really don't like building it into trinity force and I feel there are better items for Vayne then Trinity Force/Sheen.
Why do I love Vayne so much? Most people are like, "herp derp, let's go 1v1 vayne... WTF I DIED? THIS IS BULL#$@*!! TIEM TO GO QQ ON FORUMS!!" And that my friends, is hilarious in my eyes... She is also extremely fun to play! d(^-^)z
Pros / Cons
Amazing early, mid and late game
Does % true damage which is great for killing tanky champs
Probably the best carry and champion in League of Legends
Best middle laner in the game (In my opinion)
Pretty squishy and if you bring the fight to her she dies in .0005 seconds.
...Yeah, I can't really think of anything else... :/
Greater Quintessence of Desolation - ARMOR PEN ON VAYNE WHEN SHE DOES TRUE DAMAGE!?!? WTF!?!? The reason I like armor pen runes for Vayne is because it lets her kill people that much faster and I think on any AD champion they need the armor pen runes.
Greater Seal of Resilience - I like the armor on this is because Vayne is very squishy and I think she really does need the durability.
Greater Glyph of Alacrity - The reason I go for ATK speed instead of more MR is because the atk speed goes really well with her silver bolts and lets it proc so much more often.
Greater Quintessence of Desolation - Like I said, I really like the armor penetration to kill people faster.
I go the standard 21/0/9 on Vayne because it works well. Done with dat chapter... bro, umad?
I take Ghost Flash on Vayne just like any standard AD carry because Ghost works really well with her passive and ultimate. Flash is for escaping because when you are running away your passive doesn't work :(
You can also take Exhaust or Ignite over ghost because they work really well too.
I max Q first for the AD scaling and early game. W second because it is just really well and you don't really need it until mid/late game which is why I max it second. I max E last because I don't think it does that much damage and it's kind of useless in lane unless you are REALLY good at positioning.
Oh, and you always wanna get your R whenever you can. DONE WITH THIS CHAPTER BROSKI!
Maybe I should be a bit more descriptive.. Comments?
