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 naïve, 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.

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.

Greater Mark of Desolation I use this because it gives you some nice armor penetration to deal more damage in game.

I use this because it gives you some Attack Speed.

This is a perfect glyph so that you get some huge cooldown reduction for early and late game.

Skill Sequence

Vayne is nothing without this skill, it gives some nice escape but also a chasing option, and gives you tons of damage for your next attack.(Max First)

This is Vayne's powerful skill, when you hit an enemy 3 times (unless you attack another enemy) it deals a huge amount of damage. (Max Second)

This ability makes Vayne be extremely powerful because it throws an enemy back and if he crashes with something it gets stunned and deals double damage.(Max Last)

This ability makes Vayne what she is, it gives tons of attack damage and the amount of speed you gain from Night hunter is quadrupled.

Summoner Spells

This spell is extremely good when chasing a fast enemy or when you try to escape from an enemy champion.

This is a need for Vayne because it slows your enemy and lowers his attack damage and more!
You will need this spell to chase down enemies or even to escape

Ignite, Ghost, can be used with great effect.

The End

-In the end, Vayne is a massive DPS champion that can take down enemies in 1 second but it needs to get some huge farming and some kills to get her to her max point.

-She is a bit hard to use but in the end she gives amazing results.
