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.
Greetings summoners, my in game name is Jaehun which happens to be my real name as well. I am pretty familiar with AD character specs and I decided to share with you how I build my Vayne. My personal opinion is that since there is a lot of clashing ideologies there is no 'correct' way to build Vayne since every game calls for a different set of items but here I will list my general skill and item build and play style with Vayne with some screen shots of a massive amount of victories. I'm not saying that just by following my guide you will emerge victorious for it takes teamwork and actual skill of the character to emerge victorious, but it will just heighten your chances. This if my first guide, so if you provide constructive criticism I will gladly listen.
The runes I have chosen are runes that are basically great to decent for any carry. Although there might be runes out there that are better for Vayne specifically these are the runes that I use since I'm not rich on IP and can't buy runes for every character I buy. I will list some good alternate runes later.
Vampiric Scepter - So why do I start with vampiric scepter? Why else would you get it? For the life steal. The life steal is crucial and will if done right will keep you laning for a long time. Later on you build the VS into a Bloodthirster.
Berserker Greaves - Great for AD Vayne, attack speed = more damage for you. Some good alternate boots may include Boots of Swiftness for movement speed or Mercury Treads if your opposing team is CC (crowd control) heavy
Infinity Edge - In my mind this item should be included in every AD Vayne build.
Frozen Mallet - I get this item for the hit points, survivability is very crucial for Vayne for you often get focused in team fights, plus it adds a slow which is great during ganks or isolating their enemy carry
Guardian Angel - Adds magic defense, gives you a second chance in running and tumbling away and not giving your opponent the satisfaction of killing you, gives you more time in tearing the enemy team apart...what more can I say? You could possibly replace this with Banshee's Veil.
Bloodthirster - Get if for the attack damage and life steal, another good item to build your VS into could also be Stark's Fervor if another teammate doesn't already have it.
Black Cleaver - Another great item for AD Vayne. Adds attack damage, attack speed, and an armor penetration effect. What more can you ask for?
Note: The sixth item I have listed as Black Cleaver can be changed with basically anything depending on enemy team composition.
If the team is the following, I recommend getting the following items:
AP Heavy: Banshee's Veil
CC Heavy: Quicksilver Sash
AD Heavy: Thornmail
