[ADC] Vayne Guide Patch 10.14

By Twiggymocha
Introduction to vayne
Vayne is one of the most fun and hardest champs to master. Her abilities allow you to kite, play safe, play aggressive and outplay. With the main component making these possible her ultimate. She is also strong in every team comp, she can shred through tanks with her w but also melt enemy carries with her extra damage from q and condemning enemies.
Summoner Spells Back to Top
Flash - You almost always take this summoner spell on Vayne, same for most other champs, and for good reason. Flash allows you to engage with e, chase someone down, escape, clutch heal and even get to lane faster(not recommended).

Heal - Heal is an awesome summoner spell for adc's for the main reason of you being 2 people in the bot lane, so 2 people will benefit from this summoner, it does not only save your own life in a tough situation, but has the ability to save your support's or someone else's life.

Teleport - You see this more in the pro scene, the main reason for this is you are able to maintain or gain a cs lead with this summoner spell, and also split push and tp when you are needed for a fight.
Abilities Back to Top
Abilities

Passive - Night Hunter: Vayne gains 30 bonus movement speed when moving towards a nearby visible enemy champion. This is a great ability for chasing down enemies. When Vayne's ultimate Final Hour is active this bonus is tripled giving Vayne 90 bonus movement speed.

Q - Tumble: Vayne Tumbles forward, she can not tumble through or over terrain, and her next basic attack within 7 seconds deals Attack damage bonus physical damage.Tumble also resets Vayne's basic attack timer. During Final Hour Tumble's cooldown gets reduced and turns Vayne invisible for 1 second on cast.

W - Silver Bolts - Vayne's basic attacks and Condemn apply stacks for up to 3.5 seconds. Attacking a new enemy removes all stacks on your current target. Every third stack consumes all the stacks and does bonus true damage, 14% at level 5. Minimum of 110 at level 5 and maximum of 200 vs monsters.

E - Condemn - Vayne fires a bolt dealing physical damage and knocking them back 475 units, this also applies a Silver Bolts stack.If they are knocked into a wall, they take bonus physical damage and also gets stunned for 1.5 seconds.

R - Final Hour - Vayne gains bonus attack damage, has the ability to go invisible with Tumble and also triples her passive Night Hunter. The duration extends by 4 seconds each time someone dies vayne damaged in the last 3 seconds. With a maximum duration of 24 seconds at level 16.
Items Back to Top
Vayne is all about attack speed when it comes to her core items, the main reason for this being it synergises very well her w Silver Bolts and you will usually build vayne around this ability. Later on you invest in some more damage orientated items and maybe some safety like GA.

Starting Items



Doran's Shield - This is the starting item you build into when you know you are going get poked hard, vs something like a Caitlyn or Yuumi

Doran's Blade - This is the item you will usually start with, it provides sustain, damage for early skirishes and extra hp, once again for early survival.

First Items



BORK or Blade of the Ruined King - This item works very well with her due to multiple reasons. It gives attack speed, and due to the reasons mentioned earlier this works well with Vayne. The second benefit of this item is it's life steal, which gives her sustain in lane, since she is not exactly known for her strong early game like Draven. Then also some attack damage, and since you have not maxed out your w early, you need this for damage in early skirmishes.

Guinsoo's Rageblade - This item increases your attack speed the more you attack and also applies extra on hit effects, so again, building on your w Silver Bolts.

Last Items



From this point on forward, it is up to you and also depends on what the enemy comp consists of.Some options:

Wit's End - This item gives both attack speed and magic resist, and also does extra magic damage. This works well vs poke ap comps with champs like Twisted Fate. The attack speed, again goes well with your w Silver Bolts and then the extra magic damage you do will help if you have a full ad team comp.

Phantom Dancer - This item gives you a shield when you go below a certain amount of hp, and also gives attack speed. Another perk is that it gives movement speed that allows you to kite easier.

Infinity Edge - This item gives you extra critical damage as well as extra ad, this works better as a late game item and if you have a few crit items.

Guardian Angel - This is just a good safe item to build into when you are going vs an ad stacked team or someone like a Caitlyn.
Runes Back to Top

Precision



Press the Attack - This rune synergises well with vayne's w passive, where she also has to get 3 auto's.

Triumph - This rune is great for any adc, since it allows them to stay in a fight longer if there are kills, it also helps slightly with gold, giving 20 gold per kill.

Legend: Alacrity - This rune synergises well with Vayne's w passive that allows her to get more auto's off in a shorter time so trigger the stack more often.

Coup de Grace - This rune helps when she is chasing down the enemy on low hp.

Domination



Taste of Blood - This rune will help vayne with her survivability during both lane and team fights.

Eyeball Collection - This is an excellent rune on vayne since it is good for scaling, something vayne does very well.
Early Game Back to Top
During the early game, vayne is usually considered weak, she is known as a scaling champ, but this does not make her irrelevant. She can still deal loads of damage with just q and w, although I would not recommend level 1 skirmishes, 2 is viable.

Level 1 - Do not fight here, you will usually lose the fight.

Level 2 - At this point Vayne can fight, but it is still not ideal.

Level 3 - Now Vayne has her full basic kit, you can engage or disengage with Condemn, which opens fighting possibilities up a bit.

Level 6 - This is when I would say Vayne comes online, with the ability to kite, chase, do extra damage and become invisible, Vayne's ultimate gives her a great opportunity to win most skirmishes.
Mid Game Back to Top
Vayne has not reached her full potential at the mid game, but she is still in a good position to fight, especially if you are done with Blade of the Ruined King and Guinsoo's Rageblade.

Positioning



Try to stay back and let someone else engage, unless you see a great opportunity to get a good condemn off without dying. If they have an assassin or something try to stay in the middle of the group. And most importantly this is relevant to late game too, DO NOT GET CAUGHT!

Farming



Try to clear a sidelane every time you back, so that your cs does not drop compared to their adc. It is essential to not lose or maintain your lead, or even worse, stay behind, luckily vayne is always usefull thanks to her w.

Objectives


Try to be there for all the objectives that you can, objectives can either create a fight that you can win or give your team a small benefit such as extra damage or movement speed, so why not help your team and give them away.
Late Game Back to Top
When you reach late game with Vayne, you will be almost unstoppable. Your main goal late game is to not get caught. If you get caught your team will lose, play safe and look for opportunities.

Teamfighting


Same as mid game, but try not to do anything risky, rather use condemn for disengage, than risk getting caught at this stage, no champ in their team is worth your life.

Objectives


Take these as a group, do not stray from the group, getting caught will be the end, I can not stress this enough. A bad idea together is better than a good idea alone.
About Me Back to Top
I was a sion OTP(one trick pony) last year, but it gets boring after a while, so I went to bot lane. I started playing flex too, grinding it out to gold on that, much harder since I had to play with newer friends etc. But I made it, I played Lucian at the time, but have since played many more adc's including you guessed it Vayne, and that is where this guide comes in.
