Introduction


Hello and welcome to my first build, featuring Vayne The Night Hunter.

Skill Sequence

: You want to max it as quick as possbile so you can do considerable damage to the enemy.
Another use for the tuble skill is dodging skill shots (cho's spikes, jarvan flag+spear combo, nidalee's javelin toss and many others), this make this skill extremly usefull.
: Best farming skill, costs no mana and its very powerful (deals true damage to any enemy)
: This skill has 2 usages :

1) Defense
2) Offense
Offense. You push your target into the wall to stun them for 1.5 seconds and deal bonus damage
Defense. You are low on hp and you want to escape, you use condemn on your target, pushing him away
: Vayne's most powerful weapon. It increases your Attack Damage, Movement Speed and when you tumble, its puts you in stealth for 1.5 seconds...this is the most powerful ganking tool and with it you can also escape ganks

Runes

Greater Mark Of Desolation & Greater Quintessence Of Desolation : This beauty combined with black cleaver and Last Whisper will help you to hunt easly any target that is left alone.
& : They will help you to make your targets rage quit yelling that you are OP :P ...they will never get out alive

Farming

Just try to last hit minions

Team Work

In a teamfight wait for your team to initialize then pop up ulti, tumble in, condemn their carry and give them hell.
My skill sequence: R>Q>E>Q then chase till target dies...remember...every 3rd hit you deal true damage!!!

Early Game

In earaly game I start with a Doran's Blade and farm till I manage to get 920 gold for Berserker's Graves. At this stage you can easly harras, chase and kill your opponent/opponents. Now all you have to do is to farm untill you get 1650 gold so you can purchase BF Sword.


Guide Top

Mid Game

At this point you should be at least level 6 and have some kills and gold in your pocket so lets continue to finish Black Cleaver. After this baby is done, then you can easly kill your targets in a chase(remember you are a hunter...never go on 2 targets at once...wait till they split up then engage the weakest so you can kill it first then engage the second one).
Now you would want to pack up some movement speed, attack speed and also some crit chance, the best tool of trade for this job is Phantom Dancer.


Guide Top

Late Game

At this point your enemy team will relise how doomed they are and they will start to build armor items like Thornmail , Frozen Heart or Guardian Angel and you will soon relise that you are not so effective like before. So what do you do? Well you will think to total destroy their morale and build up an Last Whisper. Good job...you are back on the killing spree.
Next good item would be an Infinity Edge but if you see that you can't survive a gank or they always focus you in teamfights and start dying to quickly then build up an Frozen Mallet instead of Bloodthirster and then build your Infinity Edge.
If at this point you still haven't won then tell your team to cooperate more with you and stay together. The only logical reason at not winning with Vayne is that your team does not coordonate properly.
