Who is Vayne?
Vayne is a late game hard carry who excels at kiting enemies, positioning and dealing crazy amounts of damage while being in a safe position.
What could I learn from this guide?
This guide will cover ONLY the basic mechanics to play Vayne very basically, however it will cover almost every other aspect of this champion ^_^
About the author
My summoner name is KraSh9 in the NA server. I'm currently unranked because my PC runs kind of slowly while playing LoL and I don't want to ruin other people's fun with my lag. This guide will stick to theory instead of practice itself, that's something you have to dominate.
Pros & Cons
Like every other champion, Vayne has weak points and big strengths. If your team needs a source of constant DPS that doesn't rely on early-mid game Vayne is the best option as Silver Bolts scales awesomely into late game.
Provides a great escape and it synergizes extremely good with Tumble and Final Hour to create outplay options.
Shield that absorbs a high amount of damage giving you more survivability.
Instead of Barrier I take this when the other team is full of CC or if it has a single Hard CC that will target me.
I don't actually pick it but I've seen really good results when baiting, sustaining in lane and it opens a HUGE door to escape from sticky situations.
Greater Mark of Attack Damage
Greater Seal of Armor
Greater Glyph of Magic Resist
Greater Quintessence of Attack Damage
Greater Quintessence of Life Steal
Greater Mark of Attack Damage x9- For early game it really helps when farming and gives a decent boost to your overall damage for the first minutes of the game.
Greater Seal of Armor x9- As your lane opponent will mostly be dealing physical damage this will block a big chunk of it during laning phase giving you more survivability.
Greater Glyph of Magic Resist x9- A big boost to your resistances. Helps to block incoming damage from the support as mostly they do magic damage as well from the mid laner (Usually AP).
Greater Quintessence of Attack Damage x1- The same as AD Marks. Overall damage boosted.
Greater Quintessence of Life Steal x2- Maybe the most important runes for an ADC, helps to sustain in lane while giving you more survivability.
Running 3 gives you more sustain but decreases you damage a bit, I like to run this one more but is a personal choice.
