- Vayne is ranged. Darius says: "hurr hurr I'm a melee bruiser who can't deal with any champs that can kite my e"
- Vayne has % health true damage. Darius says: "brb crying in fetal position"
- Vayne top allows you to run two AD Carries on one team, meaning you destroy teamfights. Darius says "wats a teamfight i get all the kills my team is bad".
Pretty standard setup.
Attack speed is the lifeblood of Vayne's destruction, allowing her to proc her true damage more...
... but you might be better off with MR in teamfights, in case one of those pesky AP Carries is fed.
You can also take flat MR, to mitigate damage from Hemorrhage.
I run 12/0/18 on top lane Vayne because she has a poor level one and can be pushed out of lane very easily. Awareness , Greed , and Pickpocket help you catch back up if this happens, and stay ahead if it doesn't. Standard 21/0/9 masteries can also work.
Wriggle's Lantern helps you last hit and gives you some armor to help with Darius' physical damage.
The Bloodthirster is the preferred lifesteal item for an ADC. Unless you're getting crushed by a camping jungler (wriggle's) or the rest of their team is composed of Kayle, Dr. Mundo, Cho'Gath, and Shen (BotRK for even MORE % health damage), get BT.
Blade of the Ruined King synergizes incredibly well with Silver Bolts against tanky comps.
If he starts walking towards you, and he hasn't used his pull in a while, move towards him, auto him once, then Tumble away from him. You are now free to farm and harass him for 15-20 seconds.
