Introduction: What to Expect

I have played Vayne since her release and have seen lots of different Vaynes out there. Most of them believe that they are good because Vayne can get / steal a lot of kills, but their deaths are high. Hopefully after reading this guide you can learn to be an effective Vayne player.

Runes

The runes that I have chosen can be inter-changed depending on how you want to play Vayne. If you play her attack speed, you might want to swap out the armor pen, with Attack Speed. I find that by using Cooldown Reduction runes, you can allow Vayne to tumble and push lanes more effectively. When tumble reaches rank 5 you can tumble about every 1.8 seconds, which allows you to tumble in, for a strike, and then tumble out when they run for you. The Dodge seal runes can be replaced with flat health, or health per level, but I find that pretty useless because vayne is already very squishy.

Skill Sequence

If you are using attack speed runes, you need to skill silver arrows first. This allows you to get her proc more often on targets. If you are using armor pen runes, you need to skill tumble first. Either way, I recommend getting all three skills by the time you are level 3. But why E? If you are in mid, this allows you to knock away that pesky MIA that no one called. On bot or top it allows you to help your team mate escape or you from a nasty situation.

When skilling tumble first, be sure to grab silver arrow when you can skill Tumble. Always scale your E last. You don't use your E for dps, you use it to get away, or to pin someone for the stun. so level 1 stun is the same as level 5.

Also remember that attack speed has a hard cap of 2.5 for those of you who want to do attack speed. With the items that I have, you can reach get close, and still have that nice armor pen.
