Summoner Spells Back to Top

Flash/Heal
Flash heal is what you'll be running 99% of the time, flash is very good for escaping, combos, dodging etc. for nearly every champion (with a few exceptions). Heal gives you some defense, sustain and a nice movement speed boost to keep you alive or maybe even get a few escaping kills you need 1 aa for, also your teammate also gets the buff which is nice.


Flash/Exhaust
This is what you should run extremely rarely, for instance you have a support with a heal, which happens rarely but sometimes it might happen with a soraka, or they just like it (for some odd reason?). Double heal is bad, so it's good if at least one of you got exhaust. You got low range anyway.


Flash/Cleanse
This will be good against an extremely CC heavy enemy team. Or just a bot lane (like Ashe/Leona for example). Note that you should pick Cleanse only if you are convinced that you will use it at the exact right time.

Masteries Back to Top

This is a pretty standard thing to go on adc nowadays, fervor is probably the best one on most ad carries and fervor is really good for Vayne since she is mainly auto attacking anyway.

Okay, I know a lot of people prefer to max Q over W, but it's mainly a preference, you get more damage early game by maxing W, since that silver bolt proc is pretty nice early on. You can but one point in Q at lvl 4, if you feel like you need it. I do that often as well.
Q max second, pretty obvious, your E doesn't do that much dmg, and it's mainly just a tool to combo, stun or escape with. Q max lowers the cooldown of it, so you can be stealthed more often during your ult. 
Always put a point in your ult when you can, pretty obvious.


Q max is better on certain builds and those builds will be noted below.

Items Back to Top

Starting Items

    Basic start for nearly any adc

Core Items

    Get this trinket at level 9 most of the time
    Buy this against something like twitch maybe or if no one on your team has it
    Buy botrk only if the enemy team has hard engage champions, otherwise I'd rather not take it.
    Buy Maw of Malmortius if the enemy has a fed AP mid (note that if the champ has a lot of cc, Mercurial Scimitar out of Quicksilver Sash might be more effective). You can buy it relatively early too. Sterak's Cage is very good against a fed ad assassin for example. It can you make you not get oneshoted by them instantly.
    this build is great right now especially because of the guinsoo buff, when stacked it now applies 2 silver bolts on one aa (vs tanks)
    it's a great item if the enemy team has tanks or hand engage champions, also gives you a nice laning phase
    this item works very well with vayne because of the double silver bolt proc, but only against tanks
    you can start this item early game and it gives you huge damage on q proc (MAX Q FIRST)
    this gives you an amazing wave clear which vayne lacks, if you need the bot tower early or need to end mid game, buy this
    because of the trinity force changes, its a great second or third item on vayne now (MAX Q FIRST)
    THIS IS A GREAT BUILD FOR VAYNE THIS PATCH, REMEBER TO MAX Q FIRST
    HERE'S ANOTHER GREAT BUILD FOR VAYNE THIS PATCH, YOU CAN ALSO BUY PD FIRST AND THEN TRINITY OR EVEN BOTRK FIRST. YOU CAN SWITCH AROUND THE ORDER OF THE LAST 3 ITEMS OR GET A DEFF ITEM INSTEAD OF ONE OF THEM

Situational Items

    All of these items are situational depending on what you're building. Some of my example builds are above.
    because of the qss nerf, this item works nicely now
    STILL A GREAT ITEM TO GET AGAINST HEAVY CC COMPS

VS

Alistar

Medium

You can deny his headbutt.png with your vaynecondemn.png if you time it correctly, but this is pretty hard to do. Just try and dodge his combo with your vaynetumble.png. Your vaynesilveredbolts.png hurts him a lot.

VS

Annie

Hard

She has a lot of burst and poke with her high range, I'd recommend playing safe against her.

VS

Ashe

Medium

This matchup can be PAIN for a Vayne if the Ashe is playing it out well. Ashe can constantly aa you can keep you slowed with her range, her W doing a lot of damage.



Ashe doesn't have an escape tho, so you should be able to catch her off with your team with a gank or just with your support. Also you can dodge her asheR.png with your vaynetumble.png pretty easily if it's coming from afar.

VS

Bard

Easy

He can be quite annoying, but you can dodge his bardR.png and bardQ.png with your vaynetumble.png pretty easily. Also you can stun him while he's in his portal with your vaynecondemn.png. He's also pretty squishy.

VS

Blitzcrank

Medium

Just dodge his rocketgrab.png with your vaynetumble.png. You should also safe your vaynetumble.png for the grab so he won't get a free one.

VS

Brand

Hard

He has high damage and burst, play safe.

VS

Braum

Easy

You can dodge most of his stuff with your vaynetumble.png, a pretty easy lane.

VS

Caitlyn

Medium

A lot of people consider this a hard matchup, honestly, you scale better than her pretty quick unless you feed her extremely heavily early. She will mainly keep auto attacking you early game, but just try and farm safe.

VS

Corki

Hard

Okay, Corki has a lot of burst and early/mid game power, so he can pretty easily keep you poked with his phosphorusbomb.png and mainly outrades you early with his ggun.png up.



You can dodge his phosphorusbomb.png early with vaynetumble.png, and  when you have vayneinquisition.png up, it's pretty hard for him to hit the phosphorusbomb.png, You'll struggle mid and early but late you will absolutely burst him.

VS

Draven

Hard

Draven has A LOT OF DMG early with his dravenspinning.png up, he is all the time poking you with it and making sure you take a lot of dmg early. He's the early game monster. His dravendoubleshot.png will also make sure he'll get some free autos off if you aren't careful.


You can make him miss his axes with your vaynecondemn.png, but this also burns your mana way too much so  I don't recommend it early. Might be useful for a teamfight or 1v1. He also has no escape, so it's the same as with Ashe.

VS

Ezreal

Easy

This one is pretty simple. He's needs a bit of time to snowball, and you can just stay behind minions to dodge his ezrealmysticshot.png, also your vaynetumble.png works as a way to not get hit by any of skillshots. 


You can 1v1 him pretty early with vayneinquisition.png since it's hard for him to hit you with anything and his AAs alone don't do a lot without being fed.

VS

Graves

Hard

Graves is mainly played in the jungle nowadays, but he's still seen on ADC a bit. He has a lot of burst damage like Corki, he'll keep you poked with his gravesclustershot.png and his gravessmokegrenade.png will keep you from auto attacking him. 



One gravesclustershot.pnggraveschargeshot.png combo mid/early game will most likely get you to 15% HP or kill you, just try to play safe and auto attack him whenever you have the chance (they are on cooldown). Also your vaynesilveredbolts.png works well against him.

VS

Janna

Medium

Can be quite painful, but not too hard. You can dodge her howlinggale.png with your vaynetumble.png.

VS

Jhin

Easy

I haven't played against Jhin a lot yet, but he doesn't seem too hard to face.

His 4th shot from his passive will hurt a lot if you get hit, but just walk away if he tries to hit it on you. His jhinQ.png is also pretty easiltt avoidable, and his jhinW.png or  jhinR.png are pretty easy to juke with your little vaynetumble.png.

VS

Jinx

Medium

Jinx can AA you early with his jinxQ.png Fishbones, but just try and not take too much poke. You can dodge her jinxW.png and jinxR.png pretty easily just with your vaynetumble.png


She also has no escape so she's pretty easy to just catch up on and kill if she's alone mid/late game. Maybe even early.

VS

Kalista

Medium

This one is a bit rough to explain. Kalista is really strong early, so if you get caught in a lot of kalistaE.png stacks, or you get caught by a Thresh hook for example, you're dead pretty quickly. 


Still, you are extremely good at 1v1s and only 2 of Kalista's abilities are usable in 1v1 situations. Later on after you hit 6, you should be able to kill her if she's alone.

VS

Karma

Medium

Her stuff can be tricky to dodge. You can vaynecondemn.png her once she starts using her karmaspiritbond.png on you. Also you can dodge her karmaheavenlywave.png with your vaynetumble.png.

VS

Kog'Maw

Medium

He still hurts okay? Just ban him.


Jk, he does a lot of damage early with his kogmawbioarcanebarrage.png on you, but he's still mainly a late game carry, so you can win 1v1s with him mid game expect if he's fed af. Also you can dodge his kogmawcausticspittle.pngkogmawvoidooze.pngkogmawlivingartillery.png all 3 with your vaynetumble.png.

VS

Leona

Medium

She's pretty tanky so your vaynesilveredbolts.png does a nice amount of damage. If she gets on you, it's really hard to escape. Also you can deny her leonazenithblade.png  with your vaynecondemn.png if you time it correctly.

VS

Lucian

Medium

Lucian VS Vayne is mainly a skill matchup (also looking at you supports). He does quite a lot of damage early game with his lucianE.pnglucianQ.png combo. 


Although, you  can dodge his lucianQ.png just by walking out of it or you can dodge it 100% with vaynetumble.png if you time it correctly.

VS

Lulu

Medium

She can poke you deny a lot, but still not too hard. She's also pretty squishy.

VS

Miss Fortune

Hard

Her missfortunericochetshot.png hurts A LOT early game, if she gets the hit from a dead minion. This will take about a quarter of your health. Don't stay behind low HP minions, or you'll suffer. 


This is just overall a hard matchup for Vayne, cause of her heavy early game damage, she doesn't have an escape though so you can catch her with a gank or with your support.

VS

Nami

Medium

You can dodge her namiQ.png with your vaynetumble.png pretty easily. She can poke a lot but not too much since she's pretty squishy if she gets caught. 

VS

Sivir

Easy

She isn't really meant for damage, she has even lower range than you, so you can freely poke her with your AA or vaynetumble.png. Her spellshield.png won't be much of a use either against a Vayne.


Also if she uses onthehunt.png, you can nearly always catch up with vayneinquisition.png. Also her spiralblade.png is easily dodgeable with your vaynetumble.png.

VS

Sona

Hard

She has a lot of poke with her abilities and will zone you hard. She's still pretty squishy tho.

VS

Taric

Easy

Okay so he got updated and now I'm putting this in here. His stun is avoidable with your Q and he is pretty easy to take down with your silver bolts. Just make sure to kill him before his ult makes him invurnerable.

VS

Thresh

Medium

Same as Blitzcrank, safe your vaynetumble.png for his threshQ.png

VS

Tristana

Medium

Trist does quite a lot of damage after 6, but not too much, also she can't poke that much early, so you shouldn't struggle way too much. Her detonatingshot.png might hurt, but it doesn't hurt that much early

VS

Twitch

Hard

He does quite a lot of damage early with his twitchE.png on you, which is pretty painful. Also his twitchR.png hurts you a lot, since you'll need time to kill him, and he won't giev you that time.

VS

Varus

Hard

His AA with his varusw.png varusq.png combo hurts you a lot, especially with his high range. He can poke you a lot early, but you still dodge his varusq.png with your vaynetumble.png.


Also, save your vaynetumble.png for his  varusr.png, otherwise you'll most likely lose.

VS

Vayne

Medium

AA, vaynetumble.png and vaynecondemn.png combo is pretty good, oh wait...

General small tips Back to Top

This is my third time typing this, this site is a bit buggy.


Vayne is a champion that takes a lot of practice to play. I'm currently Platinum 3, climbing pretty quickly and with almost 600k Vayne points and I still don't think I have the full grasp of the champion's playstyle.

I mainly recommend playing safe for newer Vaynes, even experienced ones have to do this often since her laning phase is pretty poor.

Kiting and positioning is a huge part of Vayne's kit. In teamfights it's the most of the time the best to stay between your support and apc and behind your frontline. Let your team initiate first before you go in, you're squishy and easy to kill. Vayne also needs time to do her dmg, without any AOE and needing the time to stack her W. 

Try not to Q straight forward too often. It can end up horribly for you since you just wasted it and the enemy can get you in a poor position extremely quickly. Try to Q in a ''diagonal'' way. This way you dodge skillshots, get an AA reset, stay in position and catch up or escape your opponent. Also, when you use your R and Q, don't AA immediately after using your Q, that 1 second stealth is extremely good and you can use it to get in a good position, since the enemy can't see you nor attack you without predictioning where you are or without using heavy AOE.

Don't be a stereotypical Vayne player and flame your team, nor be too critical to yourself, have patience for this amazing champion. Have fun! :)

Good champions with Vayne Back to Top

16.png  Soraka gives you a lot of sustain for your laning phase so you'll stay alive for longer in lane, since you're pretty easy to get poked down. She'll keep you safe for the most part. 


267.png She grants you with a heal, poke, movement speed, stun for your stun, knockup and a slow/boost for your auto attacks. A very good support with Vayne in general. 


412.png Thresh is great to play aggressive with Vayne. He has a lot of peel for her, so she won't get caught as easily. Lane might be a bit of a struggle, but if the Thresh is good, you'll most likely get a few kills.


98.png Shen top or support is really good with Vayne, since he will distract the enemy in a teamfight and give Vayne time to attack. His ult can also save her often.


117.png Lulu is great with Vayne in many ways. She can give her movement speed, poke for her, shield her and make her  extremely tanky with her ult, also knokcing back enemies near her. 

Overall, Vayne works with an extremely supportive team. And champions that distract the enemy in teamfights so you can take your time stacking your W.

About Me Back to Top

Hi! I'm an EUW player from Finland and I'm currently as I'm typing this Platinum 1. I started league near the end of Season 3 a bit before preseason. I started playing Vayne in 2014 June and have played her nearly every day that I'm able to play ever since. I'm trying to go for Diamond this season, but don't know if that'll happen.               
               
                                       My first Vayne Montage                                  
 
This is my first Vayne Montage I did, when I hit platinum, it's pretty basic, mainly did it for fun.
I main ADC in general, I used to one trick pony Vayne in Season 5 with over 300 games with Vayne in ranked, no matter I played mainly normals. I ended with Bronze 1 in Season 3, Silver 5 in Season 4 and Platinum 3 after visiting Platinum 1 60LP in Season 5. I was placed in Gold 3 at the beginning of Season 6.
                            
                          My second Vayne Montage       

Again, same stuff. I did this while being around Platinum 2.
Vayne overall is an extremely appealing champion to me, no matter it's hated by a lot of people (sadface). Her outplay sort of kit, carry potential and just the champion's design are all extremely gorgeous to me. I just can't hate this champion.
I'm still looking to improve even more on Vayne and ADC in general this season. We'll see how it goes. Good luck with all of your goals. :)
