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.
Hello all you League Of Legends players. This is my first guide for any champion so I would appreciate feedback and criticism. In this guide I am going to go over items, abilities, and play style. I hope this guide helps you and I hope I get better at making them.
Item Explanation (Normal Build)
Start out with Boots of Speed and 3 Health Potion. This is pretty common and self explainable. Next Pick up Berserker's Greaves which will give you extra attack speed. Next build up to a Last Whisper. This gives more AD and Armor Pen. The next item you want to build towards is The Black Cleaver. This adds more damage and some health. Up next is The Bloodthirster. build your way towards this for insane damage and health steal. Frozen Mallet adds some AD and a lot of extra health. Finally you want to build towards Infinity Edge for massive damage and crit.
***NOTE THAT I HAVEN'T FULLY TESTED THIS BUILD YET AND NEED FEEDBACK.***
Ability Sequence Explanation
Blast Shield: After cooling down when Vi hits an enemy with an ability she gets a shield. Use this when you charge in for a dive or for a team fight.
Vault Breaker: I take this first and max it by level 9. This allows for a quick way to your enemy to deal damage. It also allows for Creep Killing.
Excessive Force: I take this second and max it by level 13. This allows for massive damage output and AoE damage. This also make creep killing easier.
Denting Blows: I take this last and max it at level 18. This allows for additional damage every third hit on the same target.
Assault and Battery: I take this at regular intervals, 6, 11, and 16. This allows you to catch up to your enemy to deal massive damage.
Flash: I take this to get out of sticky situations.
Ignite: I take this to get that last few hits on an escaping enemy.
Heal: Take this if you prefer to be able to heal yourself.
Barrier: Take this if you prefer a shield.
Runes and Masteries
*** NOTE I HAVEN'T TESTED THE RUNES. I DON'T OWN THEM ALL.
I would take Seal of Scaling Attack Damage X9, mark of armor penetration X9, Glyph of Scaling Attack Damage X9, and Quintessence of Scaling Attack Damage X3.
This gives you plenty of AD and some armor pen.
I take 21 in Offense, 9 in defense, and 0 in utility.
This gives you damage, attack speed, crit, armor pen, health, and armor and magic resist.
When I play Vi I am usually more passive until level 6. I go for creep kills and if the enemy is close to my turret after them. After level 6 I start being more aggressive by pushing harder and ganking. I don't dive too much until at least level 10-11. Late game when team fights happen more frequently I gank even more and dive as long as I'm at , or close to, full health.
This is how I build and play Vi. I hope this helps you and I hope to hear some criticism and advice. After all this is my first guide ever. This guide is a work in progress!!
