I know Vayne works well toplane against bruisers, especially against melee bruisers, and I want the community's thoughts on how to build her?

What bruiser:ish items gives her survivability for longer engages and the damage for her skills.

I am thinking wits end, warmogs or maybe frozen mallet. What to add to that?

My thoughts is that you should recall and go bottom lane and build her as an ADC.

Her early game is too weak for her to take advantage of her strong kiting/chasing potential. If an enemy bruiser has a gap closer/CC ( Pantheon E.G.) she will get outdamaged for much of the laning phase and even midgame phase.
If I helped you out, be sure to throw me a +Rep!

I dont think she is any viable due to all the amount of gap closers top lane and her short range, not to mention her HP pool is fairly low...
Gave you a good laugh or helped? rep+ so i can know ;)

Thanks to TinyStar, Jhoi, Xiaowi, Virus, Bard and Arcana(eww)...for my signatures!

How about answering the freaking question instead?

She's a great counterpick to champs like Darius who have no gap closers. I suggest ultimately a normal ADC build, maybe a bit bulkier.

Wit's End only if against AP.

The Black Cleaver Warmog's Armor, The Bloodthirster, Phantom Dancer or Statikk Shiv, probably still the core build for the most part.

I think everyone gets the misconception that she MUST be bot lane and must build flat carry.

Vayne does great late game damage regardless, gais. It would be feasible to do a bruiser build on her if you weren't the main carry.

Probably exactly the same as bot lane Vayne.

Berserker’s greaves - Phantom Dancer- Warmog’s Armor- Infinity Edge- Frozen Mallet/ Trinity Force- Blade of the Ruined King. That is my general build for Vayne top. I play her as more of a tanky ranged top champion. With the new BotRK changes coming in next patch I will probably rush that against bruisers. You can run a standard ADC build on her as well but you will need to rely more on your team for protection and it will make your laning phase harder. Some early items you can get to make your laning easier are a Phage, Either/both a Doran’s Sheild/ Doran’s Blade. These are just my builds I use when I play her I don’t play her extensively so these may not be ideal. I have only played her top ~20 times since the new season patch. Hope this helps any.

top lane vayne is quite strong and wasn't really effected by any of the nerfs they gave her, she's arguably even stronger with the many buffs that were given to bruisers and the nerf to mr/armor. I'd even go so far as to say she's secretly op in season 3. The only people with leaps who really counter her because of that are Khazix, Akali, Jax once he builds phage and possibly Xin.

optimal items would be botrk, gauntlet, bulwark, warmogs, wit's and possibly muramana.

right below optimal but above good is tbc

good items would be triforce, frozen heart, frozen mallet, guardian angel, muramana (this is where it is right now, good but not optimal since i haven't tested it) wriggles, zeke's, banshee's veil

really niche items, bt, ie, pd, shiv, zephyr, lw, maw of malmortius (hexdrinker is good if you sell it) (all of these there are either better options or should only be built when your carry isn't building like a carry or something and you have no one else to do tons of damage. Vayne already does tons of damage with just botrk and gauntlet.)

you want to focus on cdr, attack speed, mr, armor and hp.

the only core items i would say on her is botrk and gauntlet, warmogs is pretty damn close to core though.

i think any vayne is pretty happy with AS, but i admit i'm not a vayne expert.
