Hello my name is Thomas aka BaconMackan. I've been playing League of Legends since season 1. I got recommended to try the game out by a friend of mine and I fell in love with it. But why have I choosen to make a guid on Vayne? Vayne is one of my mains, I love everything about her except playing against her. My main roll in the game is carry, doesen't matter if it's AP or AD.
Before reading the build i recommmend you to watch Vayne's Champion Spotlight
Feel free to add me on Eune
I played around with the build, and tried out with Phantom Dancer and Statikk Shiv.
Everyone have a favorite skin and this is mine. Please tell me what yours is.
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.[/h3]
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."
As you see, the main focus of the leveling in the abilities is Q (Tumble) and W (Silver Bolts). Try to max them as fast as possible. Max R (Final Hour) in lvl 6, 11 and 16. Try to have just one in E (Condemn) if it's possible.
Tumble: Vayne tumbles, maneuvering to carefully place her next shot. She rolls toward the cursor and her next attack deals 30/35/40/45/50% bonus damage. It also refresh your auto attack coldown. So you can hit them, Tumble and hit them again after.
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 20/30/40/50/60 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 45/80/115/150/185 (+0.5 per bonus attack damage) physical damage and knocking them back (900 units). If they collide with terrain, they are impaled, dealing 45/80/115/150/185 (+0.5 per bonus attack damage) bonus damage and stunning them for 1.5 seconds. Remember if you hit your target against the wall, they will become stunned for a short period of time.
Final Hour: Readying herself for an epic confrontation, Vayne gains 25/40/55 increased attack damage, 1 second stealth during Tumble, and triple the bonus movement speed from Night Hunter lasting 8/10/12 seconds.
Why did I choose the items, and why are they necessary?
The items i have choosen is both damage reliabe and health reliabe. If you play the spells right and the items you have choosen it will become a easy game for you and your team. Just don't forget that most of the items have Unique Passives that you can use to escape, deal damage. You activate the Unique Passive by pressing the number that it's in. Like you would take an Health potion.
I recommend you to buy both elixirs to max Damage, Ability power etc. Don't forget Oracle, just in case you see any wards.
I've choosen a bit of some more AD runes, because I find it better with Vayne. Because ap isn't really her thing.
+0.95 attack damage
Buy 9 of them so they will fill up the rune "page". They cost 205 each and for 9 it will cost you 1845 Ip.
+1.41 armor. they will cost 205 and for 9 it will cost 1845 Ip.
+1.34 magic resist and it will also cost 205 Ip each = 1845 Ip for 9.
+2.25 attack damage, buy three of them, they cost 1025 ip = 3075 Ip. You can also have Greater Quintessence of Life Steal
instead, but they are a bit more expensive.
The total cost of all the runes will become 8610 Ip. If you choose Life quints instead it will cost 11685 Ip.
I recommend you to follow all of mine Masteries. Please be sure that you have read all of the meanings in the masteris I've been given a point.
I recommend you to play this in ranked or draft. So you can change the passive Mastery between Armor and Magic Restist.
Okay, this is what I think you should do. Try to just farm for a bit in the game, so you have around 20-40 Minion kills and just poke on the enemy. Ask the jungler to come down and gank your lane. Try to save up some health so you don't die. If the jungler is good, he/she will give you the kill so you will get fed in the early.
Supports I found good with Vayne is, Janna, she can knock up the enemy with herQ and give you a shield that with her E, the shield absorbs damage 80 / 120/ 160/200 / 240(+90% of ability power) and it will also give you some attack damage 14 / 23 / 32 / 41 / 50 for 5 seconds.
Taric is one champin I truly recommend, he's one of mine favorite supports, He can Heal with his Q, W gives you passive armor and resist. His E is good for gank, because it stuns the enemies for a short period of time.
Sona also works, Her Q gives you bonus attack damage, Her W Heals you, Her E gives you and you team moment speed and her ulti R stuns the enemy team.
