Summoner Spells Back to Top

Cleanse and flash is your main summoners spells since it give you the most escape and a canceled most disable which Vayne mostly. Barrier is mostly if you see their team lacks disable, this will help you survive some burst. I didn't put summoner Heal in summoners spell since I feel that barrier does the same job but much better. In the end, Ignite is for the extra burst in lanes if you know you want to go MANLY in lane since it give you extra burst if you ever condemn him to the wall ( e ).

You could take condemn ( e ) at Level 2 but I don't suggest it since is very rare that early on the enemies Attack Damage Carry goes to a wall and if you miss this skill, you lose have your Mana equaling to  about 5 tumbles. This will make you're laning phase much more harder. 

Items Back to Top

Starting Items

    Gives the most sustain early on in the game if you know that in that lane you won't be needing any damage or mouvement speed.

Core Items

    This is the most regular route most Vayne go, its even on the recommend list in-games. This build provides great sustain and some decent critical chance and attack speed. You could actually not go Last Whisper if you desire to get more damage, go for the infinity edge.
    In this build, you will be building phantom dancer first with scepter + Statik Shiv follow up with Infinity Edge. This build allow you to maximize your w early on in the game and have decent duelist potential on anyone in the game. This build got great damage but lacks sustain, build this if you are split pushing bot all day dueling the other Attack Damage Carry or want to get maximized damage mid game.
    You build blade first, this allows you to duel the enemie ad carry quite well and take him out of position if he is over-extending. It allows you also to kite quite well. This is my favourite build. Build order = Blade, Phatom, IE or lw.

Situational Items

    ( Sorry for the big text) Warmogs is a item which is not very often used on Vayne but provides good health and a great defense item for dueling. Banshees can be very well use if there is per example only one cc or one spell that kills you ( ex : Gragas ultimate ). Mercurial is good for that QSS upgrade and it helps vs anoying lock cc's like wawrick ultie or OP NASUS WITHER! Zephyr is a good item to get if you are selling boots and its a great defensive items vs minor cc's. Finaly, Randuin's Omen is by far the best item for peeling yourself from any bruiser that are mainly ad. Just press its actif, you will be happy to know you out-run them xD!

VS

Ashe

Medium
  • DON'T GET SO COCKY THAT ITS A ASHE LANE, she got TONS of damage early on in the game with her critical passive and not to mention her VOLLEY DOES MORE DAMAGE THEN EZREAL MYSTIC SHOT ( Q ) EARLY ON.
  • When you get your ultimate, try to fight her since you will have cleanse ( up you do so have it ) that will deny her ultimate and by then, you will surely out damage a Ashe mid games and late games. BE CAREFUL THOUGHT, EVEN YOU OUT DAMAGE HER, ONE ASHE IN THE FACE ON A MID GAME MIGHT COST YOU THE GAME EVEN WITH CLEANSE SINCE THIS ALLOW THE MID OR ANY CC TO GO TO YOU.

VS

Blitzcrank

Medium
  • Most people think that Blitzcrank is ACTUALLYREALLY BAD VS VAYNE. WELL MY FELLOW FRIENDS ITS WRONG! :D
  • if try to keep your tumble ( q ) for his hook, you will not be able to use it for poke since early on its as a long cooldown. When you use your tumble to poke the other ad, a good blitz crank will take a good opportunity to go and hook you. Also, he can charge with w and just try to knock you up giving enough pressure for the other ad to free farm.
  • Try to farm this and if he misses, go in and win the trade. ( depeding on matchups ) Mostly, just keep your tumble to dodge his hook then try to trade afterwards.

VS

Caitlyn

Hard
  • If the Caitlyn is any good, you will be having a hard lane vs her. <
  • TRY FARMING AND SURVIVING LANES SINCE YOU SCALE MUCH BETTER.
  • SOMETIMES IF SHE TOO CLOSE TO GET FOR A CS YOU AA + Q + AA ( LAST AA IF POSSIBLE ) SO YOU CAN FARM IN LANES ORCONDEMN(E) + MORE AA'S THE WALL IF SHE IS CLOSE TO IT AND SAFE. BE PATIENT, YOU HAVE A STRONG MID GAME AND CAN GO AGGRESSIVE LATER ON IN THE GAME.

VS

Corki

Medium
  • HE GOT THAT GODLY EARLY GAME ALRIGHT. HIS Q + AA TAKES OUT HALF YOUR HEALTH SO YOU BETTER STAY IN THE BACK AND FARM LIKE YOUR BOSS. 
  • This lane gets hard since his early game / mid game poke with his ultimate hurts. Don't be alarme, when you will be getting some sustain, his poke gets  reduce and in this matchups, if you ever tried to straight fight him after few items, you will win.
  • Most good Corki will know this, so if it ever happened, this will be a farm lane and you will be more viable late games.

VS

Draven

Hard
  • If you ever goagainst this, you will need to be very patient with farming and for the perfectchance.
  • Draven out damage most in the game, you will will need to out playing by :While he is near awall and he is charging you with his W with few Spinning Axes ( Q ), AFTER HEWASTED HIS Q AND HE NEEDS TO PICK IT UP,CONDEMN ( E ) TO THE WALL OR JUST MAKELOSE HIS AXES SO HE WOULDN'T GET HIS RESET ON HIS W AND BY THEN LOSES HIS MAINDAMAGE. IN THIS SHORT PERIOD OF TIME, YOU WILL BE TRYING TO THE MOST DAMAGE ASPOSSIBLE (Q+AA+? or R+Q+AA+?) SINCE HE LOST MOST OF HIS DAMAGE, BUT BE CAREFULSINCE HIS ULT STILL HURTS AND CAN CC YOU WITH E.
  • Other then this, a total lost for Vayne.

VS

Elise

Medium
  • Her poke at lv 3 is kinda tricky. She can burst you if she's running magic pen and if you get caught by her stun, it could be the end for you or the laning phase since the ad will follow up despite her burst. 
  • If she miss her skills shot, you can try to go her, but beware she can into the sky makes you think * why I can't do that shit too? Q.Q * 
  • Just be careful of her stun and try not to get poke ( depending on ad )

VS

Ezreal

Medium
  • Well once now a then, we know that Ezreal is just a really pain in the ass champion. His poke with q mystic shot ( q ) and his ultimate ( r ) + with a 8 sec flash ( his e ) makes him hard to catch him.
  • The reasoning that Ezreal isn't that great vs Vayne is that if you stay behind minions, each time he goes for a last hit, try to poke him with tumble + auto attacks, if the support is like a Taric, just wait till he overextendedfor the last hit.Early on, this will hurts him A LOT since he is really squishy early in the game. 
  • YOU OUT DAMAGE HIM, BUT HE GOT REALLY SAFE DAMAGE, SO LATER ON IN THE GAME, TRY TO SURVIVE FIGHTS AND KILL THE BRUISER FIRST AND DONT TAKES HIS SKILL SHOT. YOU WILL MELT THEIR FRONT LINE FASTER, THEN AFTERWARDS KILL THEIR WHOLE TEAM! :D

VS

Graves

Medium
  • His buckshot ( q ) can really make your day not fun since it pokes you and pushes your lane. Just farm till lv 6 and max w on this matchups since he gets alot of armor from his passive.
  • Beware of his burst at lv 6 also. you are still very squishy.
  • When you have some sustain, you can go all out of him. He can output alot of damge in 2 secs, but you out-damage him in the long run.

VS

Janna

Easy
  • Really easy to lane against. 
  • You will rather just pay attention to her shield and tornados, she doesn't has that much presence.
  • Pay more attention to the ad, don't try not to trade vs shield.

VS

Kennen

Medium
  • Kennen burst is kinda tricky since he got a burst and could double stun you.
  • Watch his auto stacks, if its near 2-3-4, then you should try to run away since he can burst you with the w passive proc + actif. if he does this to you, just try to avoid his q and condem if he is trying to get near you to stun you.
  • be careful, he can double stun you if he lands everything with his w proc and actif + his ultie. 
  • you are better late game ;o

VS

Kog'Maw

Hard
  • that cute little monster awww you so cuteeeee <3! 
  • Kog out burst you early games and out trades you. If he is going to max e first, this will be a  pain. Farming vs this matchups isn't that great either. You are both late game champ and he as alot more safer damage then you.
  • Try to make him waste his e, his only defensive and burst skill. When its on cd, this is your time to shine in laning phase and go for him. Try to condemn him, he is very squishy early just like you.

VS

Leona

Medium
  • You can get wreck or wreck her. The problem about leona if she snowballs, she will be a bully that can take all your autos and she will try to land her cc's on you without fear in the laning phase.
  • Simple : pre- 6 if she misses her e, you will try to poke her or trade with your support, it always depends on the enemie ad.

VS

Lulu

Hard
  • Her harass lv 2 hurts by a tons of damage.
  • So, don't try to get poke, instead try to farming and if the enemie ad is overextended  try to hit him.
  • Beware of her shields + more hp + silencing you when you fight. She can make the enemies ad so tanky. 
  • You also can try to poke her down if she is poking alone, this would let her calm her tits and not poke you at all! :p

VS

Miss Fortune

Hard
  • Miss Fortune really out-damage you early. 
  • Try to farm safely vs this champion and don't stay near behind the minions. If their is a point were you guys go all out, try to keep your condem for her bullet time ( ultie ) other then that, if you see a point you can condem safely and do a small burst, you will out-scale mf.
  • Just be careful about her ultie in teamfights.

VS

Nami

Easy
  • Nami's q is predictable, dodge it with your tumble.
  • She's squishy and her main poke hurts a bit + heals. Try to attack when you see it when its cast + with her q down since they both have low cds.
  • Other then that, she doesn't do anything to vayne farming. DODGE THOSE BUBBLES!

VS

Quinn

Hard
  • Her burst early on in the game is insane! 
  • Try to farm this one out and try to be carefull of her target.
  • Her buffs made her so she can run to you much more faster. Beware she can assassinate you and her blind can really make your day really sad since your main damage is from autos.
  • Farm this lane and wait too out damage her. Just be careful of her burst.

VS

Sivir

Easy
  • THIS MATCHUP IS REALLY IN YOUR FAVOR.
  • Sivir will always do lower damage then you, even on the laning phase, but beware since she got a good kiting / chasing kit / pushing kit.
  • Go aggressive on this lane with your autos + q and just dodge herboomerang ( Q ) with tumble.¸
  • Be careful for her small burst, it can get you by suprise.

VS

Sona

Medium
  • Depending on the matchups, Sona can poke you hard early on in the game, making it hard to lane against till lv 6. 
  • After your get sustain, if she tries to poke, poke her back twice the damage with your tumble + aa + maybe a condem. 
  • 53_64.png will help you alot in this lane, making you free farm. 
  • Get 1.png always on this lane, so when she ulties, you can cleanse it then try to go all in for making that judgement :D!

VS

Taric

Medium
  • GEMS GEMS!
  • His nerfs make him a lot less stronger in lanes, just be careful of his stun if you see the enemy ad close enough to follow it up. His potential of burst is still there so just stay back and farm. 
  • If he cast e, tumble away. Save your tumble for that moment in the lane.
  • if he waste his stun and you tumble out, try to fight the ad with your support ( always depending )  so you will win the trade ( dont' stay near him so he could burst you :o )

VS

Teemo

Hard
  • <3! TEEMO YOU SO CUTE AND STUFF ^.^! 
  • Wait, wait wait. WHAT ARE YOU DOING BOT LANE?! :O
  • Teemos sucks, just sucks, worst champion in the game. ( just kidding )
  • For real facts if you are fighthing a teemo, his poison hurts early and he has a blind..... so yeah.
  • just farm and..... FK YOU DON'T KILL THE INNOCENT TEEMO Q.Q!
  • Really, he does alot of damage when he is ap but he very easy kill if you condenm him to the wall and his shrooms will hurt. just be careful going in the brush.

VS

Thresh

Hard
  • He can apply a lot of pressure in laning phase with his auto, even thought last patch he got nerf, his harass is still pretty strong.
  • Play passive in this lane and try to not get poke, instead try to farm and if he tires to poke you extended from his ad, try to poke him back.
  • Be careful of lane ganks from lantern, can really catch you off guard.

VS

Tristana

Hard
  • Her burst early games can get annoying. She will always have that burst potential  and at lv 6, could 60% to 0%. 
  • Try to farm as always and if she gets any to close, tumble + aa hope that will out trade her. 
  • Don't try to die in laning phase, she will snowball and dunked you.
  • The hard part about this matchup is that if she snowballs, your in trouble for the rest of the game since she is also a godlike late game.
  • Try to beat her when you have some sustain or starting at lv 7 to lv 11. you will out damage her a bit but as always, you just have a small window for opportunity
  • Try to force mid games dragon, you will perform better then her in that point and it will help your team a lot.

VS

Twitch

Hard
  • Twitch is very deceptive because he does more damage than you expect.  His poison stacks + expunge can get a lot of surprise kills on Vayne if you aren't familiar with the damage.  
  • When Twitch is invisible, be very careful when his support walks up to you.  Always assume Twitch is in position.
  • Don't let Twitch stack autos on you.  If he autos you, auto, tumble, auto and then condemn him away so he can't get the expunge off.  It's really hard to won trades vs Twitch.  
  • Twitch has even more burst at lvl 6.  While Vayne can all in vs most ADs at lvl 6, you should still try to avoid that vs a Twitch unless you have summoners or items on him.

VS

Varus

Medium
  • Varus has the potential to out-trade you if he gets stacks on you and pops them with E.  Always dodge Q's with tumble.  
  • Try to constantly auto creeps for health and push lane to keep your creep wave bigger than his.
  • Post 6, you have the ability to all in Varus if his support wastes some important CC such as Leona missing E or Blitz missing Q or Taric wasting E.  BUT YOU NEED TO BE CAREFUL.  You still need to dodge his ult.  If you don't the all in will still be very close.  Anticipate his ult and flash instantly if you see it then just auto him to death.  Anticipate any CC his support has left and cleanse it instantly.  

VS

Zyra

Medium
  • You need to dodge Zyra's snare!  If you don't you will lose the lane pretty quickly.  Usually if she throws a snare diagonally at you, the best thing to do is tumble forward to dodge it and auto the enemy AD then back off.  
  • At level 6, her knockup is extremely deadly.  She makes it really hard for you to all in the enemy AD at lvl 6.  
  • Zyra is squishy so if her positioning is bad you can look for condemns on her pre 6.

About The Author Back to Top

I am a 2 years experience of Vayne but I sadly in Season 3 I'm playing her a lot less since the new meta in bot lane pretty much crush her in solo queue. I started playing League of Legends since January 2010 and still very active till now. Also, according to all guides, mines shared the same fate and that I might had made mistakes so if something bothering you, comment bellow :D! 


Also, great thanks to Lulu Loves Me or you might had saw him as Im Vayne. Really cool person that help me through this guide and did some editing of himself.

Early Games Back to Top

As vayne, you will be trying to poke with your tumble ( Q ) and to mostly just farm at your best since you are very weak at laning phase. Some lanes like 104_icon_64.png and 44_icon_64.png you will be maxing your silver bolts ( w ) and you will try to keep your tumble ( Q ) to run away from taric stun. This is really important since if you exented to much, 104_icon_64.png will damage much your heatlth early on in the game and make your laning phase really a pain in the ass. So in the end, just farm the most without going back and lose behind too much creep farm, you're mid / late game is were you will shine.

Mid Games Back to Top

Starting when you have you're first item such as 3072_32.png ,  3031_32.png , 3046_32.png , 3153_32.png  or with other items, vayne will be start shinning with her insane damage from her ultimate and tumble. This occurs since her ultimate provides so much dueling power that you might like to split push bottom to fight 1 on 1 the ad or group for dragon since you will be out damaging the enemies adc. Be careful not to be caught and try to catch enemie out of position. This is also the time that you can duel almost anyone and could rush all in knowing yo will be killing them ex : 51_64.png81_64.png, etc if you aren't too behind. Take note you are the strongest mid game adc, so make used of it and practice will be coming in handy in these situation. 

Late Games Back to Top

CRUSH THEM ALL! Just kidding but this is were you shine but always be careful of being caught. Although you might have the most highest damage in the game in this point, you will be one busted one shot as well. Be careful on cc's and of the ap carry. If their is a point in were there is a teamfight, you might want to not join your team for a couple of seconds and to stay in a brush. This would allow most of the damage to spread everywhere like 32_64.png37_64.png68_64.png or etc and then you can kill most bruiser less then 5 secs and kill the carries in 3 shots. Just be careful and practice will take hand for how you deal with late game. Getting a 3026_32.png3143_32.png or a 3102_32.png would help you a lot in this time.

Synergie Back to Top

                                              

412_64.png  Tresh is a very GOOD synergie with Tresh. His presence early on on laning phase is op. His poke and his grab presence makes it so that vayne can farm very safely. Also with his box , lantern and knockback, this allows to kite everyone in vayne way and save vayne from sticky situation.


53_64.png Blitzcrank synergie with vayne is good to a certain point. Make it simple, if you know that your blitz know how to use his pull while not spamming it, he will provide so much zoning for the enemy bot lane so it could let vayne free farm. On the other hand, it will always depends on if he is able to catch with his hook and not get poke out of lane. If this happens, vayne will get zoned the whole laning phase. Recommend if the support had played numerous games with blitzcrank.


267_64.png Nami synergize's goodly with vayne. She as a good heal + poke. She can also kite very well. Her default thought is that she needs to land her skill shots and her bubble as pretty long cd. 

143_64.png Zyra is a tricky support to play with. If you she can land snares and poke for years the other adc or support without getting caught, this would be heaven. The other hand, same thing to sona but with no sustain, she can provide great ccs and can annoy very much the enemies bot lane. Zyra is one of the demanding mechanics on support. Just see if you ever saw your support played zyra or he is just good in the game Lol.


37_64.png This lane has a very good synergie vayne. She can show a lot of presence early on in the game + a heal if she gets poke. The downfall of this lane is that you will be both very squishy and vulnerable to ganks, since none of you will have real escapes. Try to keep warding and with this you will be letting vayne free farm and maybe a kill lv 6. 


89_64.png This lane snowballs VERY hard either one way or the other.  Leona gives good kill potential since she can E, Q and Vayne can follow up with E and autos.  At lvl 2, you will usually be looking for a kill and you want to push the lane early to get lvl 2 first.  If you fail and die, Leona will become useless and you will be needing a LOT of jungle help.  Overall I wouldn't recommend Leona with Vayne unless you are sure you can outplay the enemy bot lane.  It's risky.


60_64.png Im not so sure about this lane since I didn't played enough vayne with elise. The only thing I can say is that she can provides great amounts of poke and can tower dive with spiderlings very easily. She can catch people very easily with her stun and can make dramatic changed to a game. I would recommend if you are going for extra poke + diving potential bot lane. 


117_64.png The main reason Lulu is good with Vayne is because Lulu has an AoE spell to push lane.  Since Vayne has no AoE herself, she tends to get pushed on by any other AD.  This leads to a minion and exp advantage which makes laning just harder on Vayne.  Lulu helps with this and also she has arguable the best poke out of all supports.  The problem is that Lulu is a fairly difficult support to play so if your support doesn't know what he is doing, Lulu can end up being fairly useless in lane.  I would recommend an easier support with Vayne if you are gold 3 or lower.  


40_64.png Janna synergie with vayne is terrible in laning phase. She as a good kitting tool for vayne, but she provides 0 presence which vaynes needs to farm out early. I'm not recommending to have her in lane, but if you survive with her and make it too team fights and that the janna is any good, vayne will be almost impossible to kill unless she gets caught. 


16_64.png  Soroka has a terrible synergie with vayne. She gives no presence which vayne needs to farm and she can't do much about how vayne deals with trade since shes weak early. The healing early on soroka early is almost useless. Pick a other support. 


12_64.png Alistar has a good synergie with vayne. Mostly a kill lane, Alistar can provide a lot of kill potential for vayne. If you ever have the chance that the Alistar can W + Q near a wall, its always a potentiel kill + alistar heal is kinda good. The downfall of this is that, Alistar is the support that takes the most skill. Even high players like xpecial or something else had hard time to land combo back in the times of roaming. Be sure your support know how to do the combo without a wall or at least know when to go in and take the advantage.
