4.png    Flash is mandatory and there is no real reason not to bring it on any ADC.

7.png     Take heal because Vayne will get blown up in a fight and I cant see why you would want something else.
        If you have a soraka support then 3.png  would be fine but other than that always take 7.png.

                                                             Why Fervor over Thunder Lords 

                   Fervor Of Battle is important because Vayne is attack speed based and will get Fervor stacks fast. Fervor also surprises the enemy because they can't see it.

ThunderLords was a pretty strong choice until they buffed Fervor and it is still decent on her. Thunderlords IMO is better in laning but less helpful in team fights. Fervor is also unpredictable unlike Thunderlords. A pretty strong build on vayne is with zeal items and zeal and fervor click pretty well. Although Thunderlords provides pretty strong burst in lane, Fervor on the other hand provides more sustain

Matches typically last longer than 20 minitues and so thunderlords wouldnt be that good. Fervor provides alot more damage in a team fight and thunder lords has a cool down.

Three Points in W Max Q? (OUTDATED)
I no longer put 3 points in w and max q because maxing q is now stronger due to zeal items and silver bullets doesnt do as much dmg in lane and by the time fights start you will have enough dmg. I recommend rushing phantom dancer is most match ups with q max this way you can crit more often and stack silver bullets faster.


With the phantom dancer build or any zeal build i recommend maxing Q that way you cancel your autos more and crit more often. You really wont need the 2 extra points in w because you can auto more and go invis more. 

Items Back to Top

Starting Items

Core Items

    Botrk Phantom (Preference over RFC) and QSS/Mercurial Scimitar are all essential items on vayne. Read Below for build order
    Another common build path (q max) that i dont disagree with but just dont feel comfortable with it. Read below for build path
    6.4 buff

Situational Items

    TRY TO AVOID/ EXTREMELY SITUATION
    Defensive items

For my first core build path i recommend Rushing BOTRK (1043.png first for the attack speed) > Berserk>Phantom(RFC)>Mercurial(3140.png first for more self peel).

Now I will explain why I dont prefer phantom in this build. Phantom provides stronger Duels and just all around better stats. 3094.png was nerfed and doesn't have as much damage. Phantom has greater attack speed which will be super helpful. For a while most vayne payers stopped going BOTRK because of its nerfs but recently people have went back to it and realized its actually really smooth still and has a nice feel to it.

The other build path for the 3094.png build is BF Sword>RapidFireCannon>berserk>BloodThirster>(Preference)

Why avoid some Trinity Static Wits End Youmuus Essence Reaver and RageBlade? This items are completely situation. 
Triforce used to be a pretty okay middle item during preseason and towards the end of 2015Worlds but with the new meta changes it isnt too strong on her.  It used to be good because it was a stronger powerspike than the 4 item standard powerspike on vayne. It was basically everything she needed in 1 item. I like rushing static shiv if i know i have 0 chance in lane. Even then rapid fire might be a better option. If you chose to rush it i recommend switching it out for something later. 
Wits end is an item that i have seen a couple times and something I used to do. IMO vayne is all about power spiking and that doesnt help when you could just go BOTRK and be even stronger. I would go with it if you are having fun or against a pretty magic dmg heavy bot lane.
 Rageblade is pretty fun but i dont see it being effective unless you are super ahead.
Youmuus is actually a really good item on vayne. It also gives off a pretty smooth feeling but i think it isn't very worth unless the enemy bot lane is something like 104.png or 111.png. It gives more attack speed than botrk when activated and gives armor pen and movement speed. The only problem is it gives 0 life steal which feels smooth on vayne.
I honestly dont know why people go essence reaver on vayne IMO IE is way better and makes alot more sense.
Why dont you build a ton of life steal?
On vayne life steal is essential.  But mass amounts is not needed when you have crit attacks peed and armor pen. With great positioning and self peel and perfect condemns BOTRK and Merc should be enough. But if you are learning vayne still alot of life steal is pretty great and will keep you alive even if you cant provide peel for your self.
6.4 Pd buff Build. Rushing PD on vayne is now extremely good and I recommend it. The build path is BF>Pd>IE or BT>anything. Static shiv right after PD is also extremely strong in my opinion. PDallows you too 1v1 anyone on the enemy team even if ur abit behind. I think its better than BOTRK because gives the movement speed sustain (different kind) and gives lots of attack speed and crit. Also has zeal in it that combos with Fervor Of Battle very well. Phantom Dancer is only 2500 Gold while Botrk is 3400 Gold! Phantom Dancers Stats are alot better than Shiv's and is even cheaper too! This is really strong right now and will probably be nerfed in a patch or two. Im sure phantoms price will increase but for now I highly recommend rushing Phantom Dancer. Get Bf first that way you still have some attack damage.

VS

Alistar

Hard

Alistar's combo is pretty tough to surpass with vayne. Just farm and you will hopefuly be strong late.

VS

Ashe

Medium

Ashe IMO loses almost every lane. Vayne is disgusting against her late game but wont have much in lane against her.

VS

Caitlyn

Hard

You wont win lane against Caitlyn. Farm hard and then come back late and win. She has a pretty strong late game but IMO vayne has the best in the game.

VS

Corki

Hard

Corki destroys vayne. Even late game hes a pretty tough enemy with his package. Dodge his abilities and you wil be good. 

VS

Draven

Hard

VS

Ezreal

Hard

Ezreal is a pretty hard match up because of his 2 second cool down q and his e ruins qss.

VS

Graves

Easy

VS

Jhin

Medium

Jhin has been a hard match up for me. Rushing 3153.png or 3046.png are your best bets. To beat him in lane you can either farm early for a while or you can try to fight him when you have your first item. You need to vaynetumble.png his jhinW.png(the cc). Thats where the Diagonal tumble comes in. Depending on your support hopefuly something like alistar to smash him you have potential in lane. Remember his lvl 6 isnt as strong as yours 

VS

Jinx

Easy

VS

Kalista

Medium

VS

Kog'Maw

Medium

VS

Lucian

Medium

You can dodge his lucianQ.png and his lucianR.png with your vaynetumble.png. You are also a better duelist i recommend rushing 3046.png against him to make dueling even easier. Your vaynetumble.png will make laning alot easier for you and duels because your q has potential to be lower CD than his lucianE.png. Take caution of his double shot. I recommend maxing vaynetumble.png. If he blows his lucianR.png you can hold onto yours and 2v2 the enemies. Wait till atleast you have 3046.png

VS

Miss Fortune

Hard

VS

Sivir

Easy

A good sivir will E your Condemn

VS

Twitch

Medium

Twitch and vayne are pretty neutral in lane. You can kill him alot faster at 6 items than he can kill you. Abuse that

Laning Back to Top

Out Trading                                                   As vayne out trading in lane can be simple based off your reaction                                                                         When enemy adc goes to auto a minion you simply AA>q>AA                                                                                        and hit 2  autos on there carry. (Works well with ThunderLords)

Easy Silver Bullets                                  Hitting 3 bullets in 2 seconds becomes easier and becomes a reaction for                                                                        you. AA>q>AA>E  and you have proc'd Silver Bullets.  If you max q                                                                                you hit it way more often and maxing q will pay off.
                     


Pros            Silver Bullets provides easy farming
                   Easy to Dodge skill shots with q
                   
Cons            Weak early game
                    Dependent on support
                    Not much out play potential 
                    Braum E blocks everything
                    Gets bursted
                    Cant initiate what so ever

With simple Mechanics you can turn a 2v1 into a win

Vayne is an auto based high mechanic level adc. Learning simple mechanics will increase your laning and team fight as her. 

Side Tumble

As vayne in lane and team fights especially you always want to tumble Diagonal because that helps dodge any skill shots and with vayneinquisition.png activated you will be invisible and they wont predict it. This also lines you up for nice condemns a lot of them time.

ADC Tier List (Top 10) Back to Top

Best To Worse ADC's this Patch 

    You might be wondering, where is vayne on this list?  Vayne is probably in the top 3 worst ADC's as of this patch. The reason I think Vayne is so weak this patch is because she is single target damage while kalista, caitlyn, sivir, kogma, graves, and jinx either have runaans, AOE, or more sustain.
