Hunter of the Night
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! My name is NorToXz, and I will introduce you to my favourite marksman; Vayne!
Vayne is a fun and mechanical hard champion to play. She is easy to play, but hard to master. Once you have played her for a while, you will start to understand how she works. I will try to give you a headstart :)
This guide will be frequently checked and edited, so I appreciate criticism :)
Dmg - Damage
AS - Attack speed
AD - Attack damage
AP - Ability power
AA - Auto attack
MR - Magic resist
MS - Movement speed
ADC - Attack damage carry
ADC = Marksman (ADC is old term of the role, marksman is the new term)
More chapters are coming soon!
More in-depth information is coming soon!
26th August 2015 - First officially published!
November 11th - New season!
Need to try different thing before I fully update this guide.
!!! Need to test the new items, as potions and such, before I can complete the guide!!!
* Great damage lategame.
* Great mobility.
* Tankshredder with Silver Bolts
* Handy escape with ult + Tumble
* Easy to lasthit if you are good with Silver Bolts
* Easy to evade skillshots with Tumble
- CC is a hard counter. Get CC'd and you ded.
- Weak early, before you get some attack speed.
- Tumble the wrong way and you might be dead.
- Low attack range.
- Can be shut down early.
- Use Condemn poorly, and you might save the enemy.
Flash is a spell you must use. You have the ability to
reposition, and you can also use it to escape difficult situations.
Heal is the best spell for a marksman. The additional health plus the movementspeed boost may decide between life and death.
Vayne has, in my opinion, one of the best and most fun abilities in the game. The sum of all of her abilities makes her the mobile, stealthy killing machine most of us have come to love and fear.
This ability has many uses. Early game, you can use it to even up trades, or you can use it to lasthit easier. If you see two minions are gonna die about at the same time, and you know you can't kill them both at once, then auto one of them, then use Tumble quickly to reset your autoattack to get the extra creep.
This passive ability makes her the tankshredder she is. Every third autoattack ( Condemn included), will give the enemy a stack. When an enemy get 3 stacks (autoattacked the same enemy 3 times in a row), this enemy will recieve bonus damage, and extra true damage equivalent to a percentage of the enemies health.
Condemn is an ability which knocks back an enemy a fair distance. If the enemy hits surface, for example a wall or a turret, the enemy will also suffer extra damage. It is pretty often fatal to hit this stun, because you get a huge lead of your opponent if you manage to stun them. A stun on a Marksman, how good is that?!?
When activated, Vayne's ultimate gives her passive a boost, so she can move even faster against enemies. She also receives an invincibility when she tumbles, while the ultimate is going. In addition, she also receives a small AD-buff.
Fury Gives 0.8% attack speed per point, which provides 4% attack speed with 5 points in it.
Feast gives 20 health for each unit killed, with a 20 second cooldown.
Vampirism 2% lifesteal extra on Vayne is always good.
Bounty Hunter gives 1% damage increase for each champion killed.
Savagery makes you deal 5 bonus damage to minions and monsters.
Secret Stash makes potions and elixirs last 10% longer. In addition, your health pots turns into biscuits, which provides 20 health and 10 mana when activated.
Merciless makes you deal 5% extra damage to champions below 40% health.
Dangerous Game makes you recover 5% of your health and missing mana when you get a kill or an assist on an enemy champion.
Precision gives scaling armor penetration.
Thunderlord's Decree makes you deal extra damage for every third attack you do on the same enemy. This is really good on Vayne, since she will get a lot of damage done because of this mastery, in addition to her W passive.
Greater Seal of Armor
Greater Mark of Attack Damage
Greater Glyph of Scaling Magic Resist
Greater Quintessence of Attack Speed
+9 armor, so you can sustain enemy poke earlygame.
Ca 8.5 extra AD, so its easier to lasthit cs in earlygame.
You will need the extra MR, since Vayne is a lategame champion.
You will need the extra 13.5% these quints gives, so you can autoattack faster, and get the third Silver Bolts-shot.
When you spawn, always buy these.
Lots of AS and and crit chance. This item is good with Statikk Shiv, even tho the passive damage does not stack anymore!
Powerspike level 3, as you got the 3 first abilities. Try to farm, as well as poke. easy to disengage with Tumble
It is now the fun begins. Team fights will happen all the time, and you need to be there for your team.
Always stand in the back, and use your ultimate if you need to either hard engage and deal lots of damage, or disengage to get away from the bastard targeting you. Always try to target one enemy at the time, since it is then you kill the enemy the fastest.
Remember: It is not always needed to press R right away when a team fight starts. Stand in the back and fire away, and if you need to back off or follow the prey, use Final Hour, Tumble when you have to, and kill the enemies!
