Threats & Synergies
Its very bad for u if he can get to u cause he will propably one shot you but if u can you can e him to wall and propably kill him.
This is the same its very bad for you if he gets close cause he one shots u but if u got like good supp he can keep him away or u can try to outplay him.
Lucian is just so good at start so you can try to win with supp but i suggest you just farm safely and win him late game.
Only thing u can do is Escape or try to fight with supp cause you cant win him unless you outplay him hard or you are super feeded.
Alistar is very good with Vayne Cause hes very tanky and can protect you from assasins and another plus is that you both are kinda all in champs
Thresh is just so good because he can tank and setup kills and fights for you

Vayne Late Game CarryBy PentasForDays
When you get into lane, you should spam auto-attacks on minions to push as fast as possible to beat the enemy bot lane to level 2. You can try and poke the enemy ADC with free auto-attacks if a good opportunity arises, but for the most part you shouldn't be actively seeking these and should instead just focus on pushing faster than the enemy bot lane.
Whichever bot lane starts losing the push should begin to back off once they've clearly fallen behind in the push, to avoid trading against the bot lane with the minion advantage. Should the enemy bot lane be the one backing off, at this point you don't want to keep pushing, but rather begin to freeze by only auto-attacking the minions to last-hit. This is for two reasons: the most obvious reason is that when your minions get low from being auto-attacked by the minions you're intentionally leaving alive, the enemy ADC has to walk towards you if they want to last-hit it and take free poke in exchange, and rather than do that they will instead choose to miss that CS, placing you at a CS advantage. The second reason is that while you want to push for your level 2 powerspike, your level 2 powerspike is useless if you push the enemy bot lane safely under tower. You want the minion waves to stay as close to the middle of the lane as possible, so that when you hit level 2, if the enemy bot lane don't let themselves be zoned far enough away you can just all-in them for a kill, or at least chunk them for a lot of damage. Good minion wave management at this stage will have you winning the level 2 race without the minions budging from the very middle of the lane until later.
Should you find yourself losing the race though, you should back off when the enemy bot lane is approaching level 2.
At level 2 you'll be leveling Silver Bolts most of the time to increase your overall damage, but if you're going for a level 2 kill you can level Condemn second if you're confident you can get a level 2 kill. At level 3 you'll take whichever you didn't take (usually Condemn). Your basic trading pattern should be auto-attack, Tumble for another auto-attack and then Condemning the enemy away for the 3rd Silver Bolts stack and to prevent further retaliation from them. The 3rd step of the combo is quite mana intensive so you don't want to spam it too much, only when preventing further enemy retaliation is important. The rest of the time you'll just want to proc the 3rd stack with another auto-attack.
Depending on the matchup you may either want to freeze the lane and zone the enemy bot lane with the threat of trades/engagement, or shove them in repeatedly harassing them and their tower, which works best when you have a mage support that can pressure the enemy under their tower, since Vayne herself is low ranged and only has her auto-attacks to pressure with.
When you're in the losing matchup, which as Vayne you usually will be, you'll be the one getting shoved in, and your objective is to simply farm up as best you can since you tend to outscale the enemy laner if you can make it far enough into the game.
Whenever you're shoving under tower and can't poke anyone with auto-attacks, you should be auto-attacking the tower to make sure it goes down as soon as possible, since it's a +650g boost in power for you if your team allows you to take full local gold (as they should).
Out of Lane
Outside of laning phase, your objective is to destroy the nexus. No I'm not kidding, that's literally the best way to describe it. Every action you take in laning phase is to set you up for mid-late game, every action you take outside of laning phase is to bring you one step closer to destroying the enemy nexus. The way you do this is by performing actions that will make killing the enemy team easier (acquiring gold, dragons, barons) so that you have less resistance, and destroying towers as a way to acquire gold, have better control of the map, and open up routes to the nexus.
At this point you should be grouping with your team as much as possible to teamfight and siege down towers. Vayne's sieging skills aren't really that great due to her low auto-attack range,
but what she does have going for her is her safety with Tumble, making her hard to pick off as she sieges.
Sieging towers is pretty simple, but you need to be careful about it. When both teams are alive and your team is trying to take a tower, it's your job to do as much damage as you can to the tower without dying. You need to do as much damage as you can while remaining safe. This means you can't just walk up to the tower and stand there auto-attacking until it dies; this leaves you open to get engaged upon, unless there's no resistance from the enemy team. Instead you have to repeatedly poke the tower. Walk up to it, attack it a bit, back off if someone dangerous is walking up to you. Now you might think "but what if they never stop protecting their tower? Doesn't that mean it's never safe for me to auto-attack it?". If they're constantly standing in a defensive position in relation to their tower, then they're most likely to be in range for your team to poke them and force them back. They need to be in a place where it's safe for them to sit and look for a good engage, where your team has no way to attack them without tower diving them. And if they advance, that takes them further out of safety, so if you match their movements to stay safe from an engage, they'll be forced to move back for their own safety again, as they don't want to get engaged on in a bad position either, nor poked down to a point where they need to recall to recover their HP.
So you should think of sieging as slowly whittling down a tower. It almost never takes a single minion wave to destroy a tower (unless you have baron buff), it can take many, many waves, but slowly but surely, the tower will go down if you can siege it properly.
When you're attacking a tower with enemies nearby you always want to be positioned at max distance from the tower while you auto-attack, and in between auto-attacks you should move backwards then forwards, so that while your auto-attack is "on cooldown", you're not spending any more time closer to the danger than necessary. It's also good habit in case they start to try an engage and you're already automatically moving backwards the moment you finish your auto-attack, meaning you'll often protect yourself from an engage faster than you can actually react to it, so long as you notice in time to not move back towards the tower for your next auto-attack. When it comes to team-fighting as an ADC, there is one golden rule which is the most basic team-fighting rule of all, and yet makes you an infinitely better team-fighter if you start following it; attack whoever's closest to you. If you stand at the back, behind your frontline, and just auto-attack whichever enemy is absolutely closest to you, you have the best possible positioning, as you'll only be in focus range of whoever's diving you, or whoever you're attacking. It's recommended in general to take down the enemy carries before the tanks, but as the ADC if you try to attack a carry then you're in range of every single member of the enemy team, and if they all focus you then you'll go down in under a second. By keeping your distance and attacking just whatever's closest, you'll be hardest to kill, and can therefore output maximum DPS by just staying alive and being able to auto-attack all fight long. The only time you should attack the enemy team's carries is when there's no other enemies standing between you and them or if they're horribly positioned themselves and you can focus them down along with your team. Remember always to farm alot. Thats my Vayne guide i hope u enjoyed and this helps you to play Vayne.
