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.
Vi the baby desroying machine.
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 take Ignite for early game kill secure due to Vi's slow speed. Once you beat the piss out of someones face they can simply walk away from you before your cools catch back up so ignite can help solve this problem ;)
I say Flash is kind of a mandatory spell and I never take it off. A must have for gap close and or escape.
Ghost can be a sub for Ignite for those times where You don't feel like lighting them on fire and would rather knock a hole in their face instead. Great gap closer and escape if need be.
This is my first sub for Ignite if I feel like beating the hell out of someones backside.
Great if you plan on doing Jungle but this guide isn't for that so meh we will push this spell to the side.
Meh not really my style but might be yours if you are into that sissy ****.
Pros / Cons
First and foremost she is a face wrecking machine +1
Vi has a great lane presence due to her E skill damage and AOE.
She has great CC 1 v 1 and can due her part in a group fight aswell.
Auto proc shield ( might not be huge, but does help )
In my opinion she is slow as hell so speed items are needed to help with this issue.
During the use of her Ulti R skill the animation will knock the opponent into the air but not do any damage until ground slam allowing your team mates to KS due to the time delay. Happens very often for me and makes me want to kick a baby.
Well this is just to start.... Kinda ran out of time here at work, but I hope it helps and everyone enjoy. :) Merry Christmas
