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.
This Build is for SPEED SPEED SPEED. In the end you will have Ghost + Boots of Swiftness + Phantom Dancer + Priscilla's Blessing + the map speed buffs = map teleport awesomeness. Its simply ridiculous.
Dominion is a mode in which you need to be very mobile, get in/out extremely quick and with the main purpose to capture/defend points. This build is solely built on such ideals. I would never build Vayne this way in a normal game. As For Dominion, this is by far one of the best builds I have used. It has allowed me to be versatile, help out my team and rank #1 every time I use it.
Vayne is one of the best Dominion Champs out there. Reason being is that she is rarely picked in draft. She is not OP so she never gets banned and she simply RAWKS FACE in gap closing. She is very under estimated and is often challenged 1v1. This is a great thing, being that if you know how to play her right you will come out on top. Team fights is your sexy time and when you are low leave and NO ONE will catch you with this build.
This set is all about the attack speed. You are making up for the fact that you have Boots of Swiftness instead of Berserker's Greaves by gaining 25% attack speed with your runes alone. So now you have the movement speed with attack speed runes + cool down reduction to get where you need to be fast and bum rush your foe.
- - -
9 Greater Mark of Attack Speed
for attack speed, to make up for your boots.
9 Greater Seal of Armor
Lets face it there is no better Seal than armor.
9 Greater Glyph of Cooldown Reduction
for cool down reduction to get you through your combo faster.
3 Greater Quintessence of Attack Speed
to top off your attack speed to 25%.
By far the most OP summoner spell reason to which its a must have. Get you out of tough situations and another way to get in position to kill.
Perfect to get you to a capture points fast or to get away or even to catch up to a foe. And as I mentioned earlier in the introduction, Ghost + Boots of Swiftness + Phantom Dancer + Priscilla's Blessing + the map speed buffs = basically map teleport CRAZINESS.
Boots of Swiftness
will allow you to be one of the first to the top capture point with also the assistance of the map speed buff and Ghost.
This will eventually build into Priscilla's Blessing. It will also give you some sustainability.
Mid game goals:
I'm sure I'll get a lot of debate on this one but hear me out. Diminion is all about capturing points and getting places fast. Priscilla's Blessing simply allows you to do so and do it well. It allows for 15% increase for capture rate. Plus it has a built-in free ghost that is has a very small cool down. I say its a must have.
PERFECT item for Vayne and dominion. I would almost say it was made for this game play. Attack speed, Critical strike and movement speed? There is a reason we will build 2 of these for her.
Originally not in my build but thanks to "Quoggle" for the recommendation this is an awesome item to have. It really helps with vision when taking down a foe as well as help hugely with stealth Champs.
Last items and crazy life steal:
At this point you of the game you have all the attack and movement speed you need. Its time to get some life steal and damage and that is exactly what this item will give you.
Sustainability is key at this point. This will give you and your teammates an advantage in team fights. You are outputing some very high damage so getting a lot of that back as health is ideal. Its not the best item for Vayne in normal games but it does become one in Dominion.
Other items and last thoughts:
You may be wondering why I didn't go with other high damage items or have gotten more defensive items. Truth is, this is a very fast pace game. It takes some good time to build better items and you really just need constant boasts to give you an edge over other appointment's. Let me explain:
An amazing item, definitely the best for damage and Vayne. BUT, there is just not enough time to really utilize it in Dominion. By the time you have built this item its very likely you wont have enough speed to output the damage or the other players already have an advantage on you or your team. Dont get me wrong its very possible to get this item and rawk other with it. BUT It takes too long to get it puts your behind in game. You don't want to be behind on kickassery.
The Black Cleaver
Another great Item for Vayne. But you will be building so much speed with the rest of the build that this is not necessary anymore.
This is not needed UNLESS the someone is fed and can one shot you. Other than that your life steal will do all the rest for you.
