Summoner Spells Back to Top

Flash - Always take flash! Make them highlight reels~

Heal - You're in a duo lane - Heals two people. (common sense cmon guys)

Exhaust - Now this one is a bit tricky because this is super situational and I'll tell you why 
                The reason you would ever take exhaust is when you have a soraka who takes heal for more weewoo power!!
                
               
Cleanse - I know i don't have that as one of the spells because i fine that it is not worth it to get cleanse. Qss gives what cleanse does except better.

This is the mastery page I always run on Vayne.


Fervor vs Warlords 

       Why do I take Fervor over Warlords? Well that's because of the Sustainnig build that i run on Vayne and the bonus AD on Fervor! you gain 112 AD at lv18 and it can really help with early duels. I go for a very sustaining build on vayne so  the added AD is that much more useful vs the lifesteal on warlords

Crit Build Vayne on the other hand would benefit from Warlords over Fervor

Vayne has a lot of options compared to other adcs lets go over all the viable routes!

       - Vayne's first option level 2: Upon hitting level two vayne has two options:
           either go Silver bolts or  Condemn 
                   In most situations you would go silver bolts however there are times when your opponents hug the bushes(with vision) and that gives you a free chance to condemn and solidify lane dominance by forcing a summoners/getting them to recall or even killing them.
 
        - Vayne build path: Maxing Q or W? 
Maxing tumble is a lot more optimal if you have enough gold on your first back to buy a BF sword, if not then you want at least 3 points in vaynesilveredbolts.png before maxing vaynetumble.png
      - Condemn: When to use vaynecondemn.png
    Condemn is a very hard thing to master because sometimes it can save your life and also it can also accidentally push an enemy away/into your teammates leading to your own deaths(I still do this myself a lot too) if you see a wall behind the enemy always go for the condemn and do NOT greed for the auto attack + condemn combo, stunning them is much more valuable than getting that 1 auto off. 
   
       - vayneinquisition.png Final Hour: When do you use it?
     A lot of vaynes have trouble knowing when to use Final hour leading to them actually never using it until way later in the game. it's actually quite simple! Don't think about saving your Final hour for outplaying your opponent but think about it as a damage multiplier + chasing mechanism. A quick and every day scenario would be your support landing a form of CC onto the enemy ADC AND the enemy support has no form of cc or has already used their cc. This is the moment to flip that switch and get in all the damage you can with Final Hour.

VS

Ahri

Medium
  1. When going against Ahri buying a 3140.pngcan do wonders.
  2.  Save your vaynetumble.png for her ahriseduce.png .
  3. Avoid fighting her when her ultimate is up.
  4. She does a lot of damage so building a 3156.png is also a great answer to beating her

VS

Akali

Hard
  1. I highly recommend buying pinks against her.
  2. When she ultis you she will end up behind you from where she dashed to you from (keep this in mind for condemn plays)
  3. Akali's akalishadowdance.png has only 3 charges so count them if you can to see if you can win a 1v1 or not
  4. 3156.png is a very good counter towards akali(it keeps you from getting 1 shot)
  5. Buy pink wards for her akalismokebomb.png

VS

Alistar

Medium

1. After he uses his combo on you, you have the greenlight to trade against their adc.


2. Your Silver bolts go through his ultimate.  

VS

Amumu

Medium
  1. He is very tanky and autos benefit him so be careful when dueling him
  2. stay out of ultimate range (basically your auto attack range)
  3. save tumble for bandage toss
  4. I highly recommend building QSS against amumu unless you're confident you can stay out of his range
  5. He does very little damage to vayne when he is close

VS

Anivia

Medium
  1. Slows are really effective against Vayne
  2. You can tumble Anivivas wall
  3. Anivivas wall can proc condemn 

VS

Annie

Medium
  1. Annie is very squishy early game. Try to punish that during lane espcially after she uses her stun.
  2. Highly recommend second buy QSS against Annie.

VS

Ashe

Hard
  1. She is very punishing, use your tumbles defensively against her
  2. Save tumble to dodge the ultimate
  3. When dueling Ashe in a 2v2 make sure you have your support in between the two of you so that the stun doesnt hit you 

VS

Azir

Hard

Azir outranges Vayne with his soldiers ( Watch your positioning)

You can flank Azirs because he is really vulnerable once his skills are out 

You cannot tumble Azirs wall

VS

Bard

Medium

Bard's passive can be very punishing/ make sure you aren't getting harassed by him

Save tumble for his slow/stun 

Bards tend to leave lane so when he does all in that ADC 

VS

Blitzcrank

Medium

1. tumble is great for dodging hooks unless you get hooked.. you're probably dead 

VS

Braum

Medium

Braum's shield blocks autos and makes it very difficult to kill the adcs
             -try to position yourself in a flank whenever against braum

Save tumble for his Q

Focus braum in laning phase 

I Recommend second buy QSS against Braum

VS

Caitlyn

Medium
  1. Caitlyn is extremely punishing in lane, give up cs and dont be greedy. your job is just to survive until level 6
  2. Yordle snap traps give vision of Vayne while she is in stealth! 
  3. Don't chase a Caitlyn head-on to avoid getting caitlynentrapment.png and to keep on the chase!
  4. Vayne gets a huge powerspike over Caitlyn at level 6
  5. Caitlyn's caitlynaceinthehole.png reveals you while you're in stealth
  6. Caitlyns tend to over punish and over extend(standing by walls, turret range) to get more autos off, use this to your advantage and punish her for being greedy

VS

Corki

Easy

Throughout the game Corki has dangerous burst potential

  1. Always try to dodge his abilities as they can be very taxing 
  2. 8mins into the game Corki gets his first package. Do not be hugging a wall when you hear him grabbing it. Be in the middle of the lane so that its a lot harder for him to close off escape routes
  3.  Vayne outscales corki, be safe and you'll be able to beat him
  4. Corki's carpetbomb.pnghas a really long cooldown so if he ever engages with this and cant burst you take this opportunity to all in him 
  5. When he uses ggun.png do not engage on him and wait for it to go on cooldown 

VS

Darius

Medium

VS

Diana

Hard

Once she gets a couple of kills(which she will) you will be getting 1shot by her 
  - highly recommend getting early MR against her 
          3155.png 3102.png3026.png

After you survive her combo she is pretty easy to kite around! (if you survive that is)

VS

Draven

Hard

This match up is favorable toward 119.png.

  1. During laning avoid 119.png as much as you can! he will most likely outtrade you
  2. Draven's weakness is that he is very immobile and will greed for catching his axe. Sometimes these axes will want to drop by a wall, this is where you can land a vaynecondemn.png for a wall bang and get a free trade off and even kill him!
  3. 67.png wins at level 6 with her vayneinquisition.png, because Draven is an auto attack dependent ADC
  4. Draven's dravendoubleshot.png will cancel your tumble 
  5. Draven is much faster than you with dravenfury.png , only fight him if he didn't catch his axe and is on cooldown

VS

Graves

Medium

Graves alone is a very easy matchup. 

However when paired with a support who locks you down
example: LeonaNautilus , Annie
the match up will be much more difficult.  

VS

Janna

Medium

Go in on Janna after her sheild goes down (4 seconds upon use)

Her slows and knock ups make it hard to catch up/run away 
    - turn and try to all in when you do get slowed
    - save tumble for her knockup

Her ultimate makes it so that she can cancel your all in w/ your ultimate so try to blow it before all inning 

VS

Jarvan IV

Medium

Jarvan is helping! 

  1. Jarvan does a lot of burst damage with E+Q+R jarvanivdemacianstandard.pngjarvanivdragonstrike.png jarvanivcataclysm.pngcombo so a Sterak's Gage 3053.png is recommended against him
  2. Watch where jarvan drops his standardjarvanivdemacianstandard.png as that is where he is likely going to be targetting
  3. You can tumble out of Jarvan's Cataclysm jarvanivcataclysm.png
  4. After Jarvan's combo he is pretty Defenseless so that is when you pop your vayneinquisition.png and all in him!  

VS

Jinx

Hard
  1. Levels 1 - 5 jinx can out harass you if you are not careful 
  2. At lv 6 you will destroy her at 1v1 
  3. She is very immobile so watch where she is positioning
  4. Only trade with her if she is greeding for an auto 
  5. Alaways try to focus her while trading in lane because she is going to be naturally squishy 

VS

Kalista

Medium
  1. Go for short burst trades verses kalista, long trades are not in your favor
  2. Kalista is a lane bully so watch out if she is paired with any form of cc
  3. At level 6 you have a chance to out play her as going out of vision causes her Auto attacks to completely disappear. 
  4. Play passive and just get as much farm as you can, you will outscale her 

VS

Kog'Maw

Hard

Vayne wins early on - Kog'maw wins late


 - Tumble to dodge his slow then look for a short trade
 - Constantly look for these trades and create a snowball
 - Against kog'maw I would highly recommend having a sustain support or someone who can all in 

VS

Lucian

Medium

There is a lot of debate about who is the stronger adc(basically who counters who) so I'll break it down to ya'll! 


This match up is honestly one of the closes match ups for both adc
  1. Lucian's main source of damage during lane is lining up his lucianQ.png onto you, save your tumble to avoid it if you cannot sidestep it!
  2. Good Lucians will try to bait your tumble by dashing into you so do not preemptively use your tumble, save it for when he uses his lucianQ.png

VS

Zilean

Medium

He is very squishy 

Save your tumble for when he throws his bombs out

Make sure to fight him after he uses his slow/speed 

His ultimate can be very annoying since you are a single target champion so be quick to switching targets 

VS

Zyra

Medium

She is super squishy yet does a lot of damage. 


Keep an eye on her movements and avoid getting poked down/ go in when she misses her skills and you will most likely 3 shot her
