Vi is for Vicious
Not Updated For Current Season
What up guys this is my first build here. This is just my opinion so far for her, and ill update it more as i use her more so if you got any suggestions just let me know Thanks. Vi is a fun Top lane to play because she is both Tanky and can put out tons of damage. Although she is melee she can harass with her E and hit people, or catch up, to people with her Q. The more and more you play her the better you get, and The more you will understand her. You will Find combos or how and when to start team fights because she is a great initiator Due to her ult. With her ult you can open up a path right to the adc Which will be great for everyone else. You can help teammates running away by stopping them with your Q.
To Vi, every problem is just another brick wall to punch through with her gigantic hextech gauntlets. Though she grew up on the wrong side of the law, Vi now uses her criminal know-how to serve Piltover's police force. Vi's brash attitude, abrasive humor, and blatant refusal to follow orders can often infuriate her by-the-books partner, Caitlyn. But even the Sheriff of Piltover cannot deny that Vi is an invaluable asset in the fight against crime.
As a child growing up in the lawless outskirts of Piltover, Vi learned to rob and cheat to get by. Stealing and stripping hextech hardware gave her the skills of a master mechanic, while life on the streets taught her self-reliance. When she was six, a ragtag group of criminals took a shine to the young delinquent and brought her into their fold. By the time Vi was eleven, she had become a seasoned accomplice, and she relished the thrill of every heist.
Vi's attitude changed when a raid on a mining facility went bad. She was forced to decide between fleeing with her crew and trying to save the innocent mine workers from a collapsed tunnel. Vi chose to play the hero. While searching for a way to free the mine workers from the rubble, she discovered a damaged robotic mining rig. Improvising, she wrenched off its huge fists and modified them into makeshift hextech gauntlets. Fitting the heavy weapons to her tiny hands, the young girl flexed her arm and threw a powered punch at the rubble. The force of the blow blasted away the rock. With the workers free to escape, Vi fled the scene.
After that job gone wrong, Vi severed her connection to the crew. She returned to a life of solitary crime, but stole only from other criminals. As the years went by, Vi modified and improved her hextech fists, allowing her to bust up heists and snatch loot with ease. Eventually, word of her notoriety reached Caitlyn, the famed Sheriff of Piltover. Rather than seek Vi's arrest, Caitlyn offered the criminal a way to pay her debt to society: work for the law in Piltover. Vi laughed. To her, a job that let her beat up crooks without forcing her to run from the cops sounded perfect. She immediately accepted. Caitlyn now struggles to keep Vi in line, and Vi treats Caitlyn's orders as mere suggestions, but when they work together, they are feared by all lawbreakers in Piltover.
''It's a shame. I've got two fists, but you've only got one face.''
I like to max my Q first so the cooldown will be short. Then i get my E for that extra damage in fights, Also so you can harass with it. Then i grab W last after you gain some attack speed. You can either follow this or get your Q first and switch off between the W and the E
To farm with her you will want to Either just try and last hit, or you can hit all the minions with your Q and this will line them up so you can use your E on them and hit them all. Mid game to Late game your Q will just about 1 hit minions. So If theres a huge wave you will be able to just about clear them with one Q. If not get in a good position and try to hit them all with an E. Vi is Great at farming.
For me i like to rush a black cleaver, after that she needs some health So you gotta grab the Warmogs, and then she will be decently tanky. I love the Ravenous Hydra because She does tons of damage and it will be great in team fight because everyone will get hurt. Frozen mallet for the extra health and damage and then Atmas for that Good damage boost. With her being tanky it will discourage the other team to not target you But you can also output tons of damage. You will surprise them greatly.
Make sure you always work well with your teamates and even gank if needed. When in a team fight You want to ult The Adc so they cant hurt anyone and It will Get everyone to target the Adc. Also with that you will do tons of damage and be right next to them to do even more damage. If you Do this correct your team fights should go pretty well. And your ult ignores CC so this isnt a worry.
If you are going to gank a lane, your going to want to wait in the bush. when the enemy is on your teammates side of the lane charge up your Q, run in and him them. With this they will get knocked back a little and will start running. Keep hitting them to get your w stacks on them. Also Use your e because it will give you extra damage. Id they are low on health and out of reach you can either, Use your E and hit minions and try to get them Or you can ult Which will slow them a little. With this you should have enough time to take them out.
