How to Play Vi

(Early Game)
In the early game, try to gank as much as you can without falling too far behind. Look for opportunities to use Vault Breaker to jump over walls to pass by wards and sneak up on enemies. If you don't see any good places to gank, farming until level 6 is a good option as well as it allows for you to then have your great lockdown ult.

(Mid Game)
In the mid game, use your ult to gank as much as possible. Make sure to buy wards to track the opposing jungler. If you know that you aren't going to get counter ganked, you can usually get a successful gank off by running down the lane and using Vault Breaker to get close enough, then use Assault and Battery if they are far away or getting away. Once you have The Brutalizer, you can do dragon really easily because of Denting Blows so look to secure dragon as much as you can.

(Late Game)
In the late game, you become a huge threat once you get Trinity Force along with Ranger's Trailblazer - Warrior and The Black Cleaver. You can pretty much kill anyone 1v1 once you get those items so look for opportunities to catch and assassinate the other team carries.

(Team Fights)
Vi is pretty versatile in terms of what she can do in a team fight. If you're tanky, you can initiate really well and kill off their back line champions. Vi can also peel for her own back line if needed because of the armor shred provided by The Black Cleaver and Denting Blows along with her crowd control from Vault Breaker and Assault and Battery. If the enemy has one major carry, you can easily initiate and focus them due to your amazing ultimate.

Jungling Route

Usually with Vi, you want to start off with the Gromp, smite early to get the poison buff. Then, proceed to blue and kill without smite. Finish wolves and proceed to red, where you can smite to get extra health. Back and pick up your jungle item. Now that you have double buffs (and maybe chilling smite), you can gank early. Besides that, remember to keep vision on dragon, ward often and look for opportunities to counter jungle (especially if you have traiblazer).

Pros / Cons

Pros:
-Amazing ganks with q
-Almost guaranteed kill with ult ganks
-Can peel
-Escape potential with Q

Cons:
-Vault breaker can be dodged if you dont' have sufficient practice or if you make it obvious
-Can have low damage (hence why I usually go 21/9/0 with aggressive runes)
