The world is not always as civilized as people might think. There are still those who would follow the blackest paths of magic and become corrupted by the darker powers that flow through Runeterra. Shauna Vayne knows this fact well. As a young privileged girl in the heart of Demacia's elite, her father tried to convince her of the constabulary's ever-vigilant eye. Young and naive, she truly believed that her world was one of perfect safety, until one night, when a twisted witch took interest in her father. The malevolent woman overcame her father's conciliar guard, then tortured her family before murdering them. The young Shauna escaped only by hiding herself and then fleeing once the hag had departed, plagued by the screams of her loved ones as she ran. A burning hatred was born in her that day, one that could never be denied.
Vayne was able to take care of herself using her father's money, and she began to train as soon as an instructor would have her as a student. By the time she was a fully grown woman, she had become a grim warrior. However, the fields of battle were not to be her home. Demacia needed a protector, one who hunted those lost to the darkness. Shauna used her family's contacts to become the first Night Hunter, and now her prowess is the stuff of legends. It is said that those who practice the black arts quake when they hear that the Night Hunter is on the prowl. Despite her crusade, Shauna has looked at the League of Legends in horror. There are champions who have clearly lost themselves to the blackest of magics, and who have been embraced within the League even though they should be put down for the safety of all. The time has come for the Night Hunter to execute her secret mission - to purge the League of Legends.
Not all shadows are to be feared. At least, if Vayne has her way.
Aka. vayne is good..
Night Hunter: Vayne ruthlessly hunts evil-doers. She gains 40 Movement Speed when moving towards an enemy champion.

Silver Bolts: Vayne tips her bolts with a rare metal, toxic to evil things. The third consecutive attack or ability against the same target will deal 30/40/50/60/70 additional damage plus 4/5/6/7/8% of the target's maximum health as bonus true damage. (Max damage vs. monsters is capped at 200)
Condemn: Vayne draws a heavy crossbow from her back, and fires a huge bolt at her target, dealing 60/100/140/180/220(+0.5 per bonus attack damage) physical damage and knocking them back. If they collide with terrain, they are impaled, dealing 60/100/140/180/220(+0.5 per bonus attack damage) bonus damage and stunning them for 1.5 seconds.
Final Hour: Readying herself for an epic confrontation, Vayne gains 35/55/75 increased attack damage, 1.5 second stealth during Tumble, and quadruple the bonus movement speed from Night Hunter lasting 8/10/12 seconds.

How to gank
Ganking is key to helping your team and making sure everyone is caught up as well as you. You don't want anyone feeding the enemies and you want to maintain a balanced. To gank just push your lane (Best if your lane opponent is not currently in the lane) and head down the river to one of the lanes. Wait in the bush, pop your ult and stealth for a surprise, knock enemy back with your E and take care of them. Also you can push a turret too if open.
Team fights can sometimes be hard with Vayne, do your best to stay in the back and snipe people using tumble, make sure not to tumble into the enemies by accident because you will most likely die, try to tumble backwards and move back up to take the shot. Use condemn whenever possible but try to hit enemies into walls DO NOT EVER HIT AN ENEMY AWAY FROM THE FIGHT WHILE THEY ARE GETTING ATTACKED UNLESS THEY ARE VERY LOW ON HP, YOUR TEAM WILL GET MAD what you should do though is use this to knock out the tanks and supports while your team brings down the squishies, you can also use this to save allies. If you have very good tanks you can probably stay in battle constantly and attack, when your not focused your DPS can be pretty insane and it's easy to get triples and quads. Remember to use your ult in the beginning of every fight, it will help...A LOT.
Getting First kill
Once you hit 6 if you haven't gotten a kill already your about to. Make sure you harass them down to at least half health, then walk a little back, pop your ult and hit tumble you will stealth for a little so they won't know your coming. Then hit them with a few attacks run towards them with your quadrupled movespeed and use exhaust. Go around them and use Condemn thus knocking them back closer to your turret. Use tumble every time it comes off cooldown and if you have to take a couple turret hits just flash out and enjoy your wonderful kill, your DPS should be more than enough to quickly take down anyone with ease.
Vayne is an amazing harasser and can close gaps between opponents using the key ability tumble. You can use this to stay back, then roll in a get a quick poke on your enemy, against squishies this move will deal crazy damage even at level 1. Make sure to not be stupid and harass them when there are a bunch of minions nearby because they will all attack you and end up dealing more damage to you then you did to them, especially if they harass you back, it just won't turn out good so don't try. Wait until there are 1-3 minions left then tumble in hit them a few times and if there slow enough the cooldown on tumble is short enough that you could hit them twice. Just don't get too carried away with harassing, you still need to farm minions and you won't get money unless you actually kill them, so know when to play defensive too.
For Vayne I max out tumble first followed by Silver Bolts, then Condemn. Of course taking my ultimate whenever I can.
The reason I do this order is because tumble gains great benefits when leveling it and it's important to get it maxed at level 9 so that you can have the very short cooldown. Silver Bolts is good to max out second because early on you build mostly attack speed which enhances the skill. Condemn is mostly used for the CC/Stun and leveling it up doesn't increase the effect, only damage.
