A Little Bit About Me!
Hi, My name is Casey, or Ch0wd3r. Im a jungle main who is currently in bronze one (just started playing ranked) and i also do a little bit of ADC. Vayne is my go to ad carry for many reasons: shes fun, high skill cap, and her abilities combine extremely well. Overall Vayne is an awesome, fun, and viable adc for ranked s3 gameplay. Also this is my first MobaFire guide so go easy on me :)
My build, as compared to others, is odd, but i think works with her very well. Instead of focusing on attack damage, it focuses on attack speed to proc her Silver Bolts as many times as possible, while still dishing out tons of damage.
Night Hunter is an awesome passive as it allows you to chase down enemies with relative ease. You gain 30 MS when running towards a visible enemy. Its important to remember you must be running TOWARD them in order for it to activate
Tumble is what Vayne is known for. It can catch fleeing opponents, it can dodge skill shots, and it can create distance between you and an opponent.
Silver Bolts is Vayne's bread and butter in my opinion. it deals IMMENSE true damage and has the ability to shred tanks down because it deals the true damage plus 8% of the targets max health as bonus AD.
Condemn is an awesome tool, it gives CC, and escape ability, a damage tool, pretty much something anyone could use. Vayne will shoot a large crossbow bolt at an enemy, dealing damage and knocking them back. If they collide with terrain, they will be stunned as well. This ability has great synergy with her tumble ability, allowing you to Tumble to a Condemn for a almost guaranteed stun.
Pros / Cons
-High early game burst
-One of the best chasers in the game
-Devastating carry at late game.
-Snowballs extremely well, can be incredibly frightening when fed.
-One of the best hard counters to tanks/tanky dps
-Lanes extraordinarily well against melee champions
-Early game burst requires you to remain in range of your opponent for extended amounts of time.
-Is completely shut down in the laning phase by those with longer range or those with poke/retreat capabilities.
-Very item dependent in mid game, and might get shut down too hard if she did not do well early game.
For her early game you need to focus on farming and poking. Don't engage until you are level 3, and coordinate with your support. You should Tumble Condemn to land the stun while still AA while Silver Bolts activates. If your support is carrying Exhaust this should be an almost 100% chance for a kill or first blood even. this should help you snowball into late game extremely well.
Overall Vayne is one of my favorite champions and really fun to play.
I hope this guide helped you and if you have any tips or questions feel free to ask.
