I opt for 21.png over 1.png most of the time.  The problem when I get ganked is not so much CC duration as much as it is damage. You are significantly weaker in a 1v1, 2v2 setting without 21.png


Some reasons why you would want to take 1.png:

1. They have amumu.  

2. They have cc on every member of the team and you don't feel confident with just 21.png.  

3.If they have low burst damage and high sustained damage (because 21.png is better against burst and 1.png is better against sustained damage.  The reason for this is because 1.png allows you to widen the gap between a would be assailant and you, while 21.png simply protects against a few auto attacks or spells, but doesn't actually do anything to keep you out of range.)

UPDATE:  You can take 7.png in almost every situation now.  The above criteria still applies for deciding on whether or not to take cleanse though.

Since a lot of physical damage dealers also have magic damage in their kits, and most of them have access to 3087_32.png, you will still take some mixed damage, but you also build a lot of MR in AD Carry defensive items(3155_32.png3140_32.png3026_32.png), making armor runes a solid choice.

It doesn't make very much difference what you do here.

I take minion damage for better objective control and because you have to farm jungle on AD Carry sometimes.  

This also allows for more sustain on last hits by taking Feast.

On 67_64.png Q max will usually be your best bet.  Even if you rush 3153_32.png, Q will continue to be a reliable source of mobility and damage into mid and late game.  Suffice it to say, you can do whatever you want and do OK on 67_64.png.  In my honest opinion, there is never a reason to not max Q unless you have an Attack Speed Steroid available to you very early on in the game and you want to build 3153_32.png3086_32.png and 3252_32.png to take advantage of that.

Items

Start With
Core
Situational
Sometimes you want to build 1 or 2 defensive items.  It will depend on a few things like: "what types of damage are they dealing?" and "how many people are diving me in teamfights?  You are usually better off going with more damage in games that you aren't getting heavily focused.  This can all change instantly of course, so having good positioning and good micromanagement is probably more important than your item choices.  Just know you fall off in damage significantly if you choose to go for more than 1 defensive item.

I feel like 3142_32.png is a decent pickup on 67_64.png, but I prefer to not be pigeonholed into an active when I play ad carry.  In my mind, the only reason you would build 3142_32.png on 67_64.png is to take advantage of the 3/4 item build path that skips 3086_32.png and you don't really have a reason to do that. 

(This is the build I am referring to: 3153_32.png3142_32.png3006_32.png3031_32.png3035_32.png )

You can also build 3153_32.png3142_32.png,3006_32.png3086_32.png, but I feel like 3153_32.png3087_32.png/3046_32.png is just as strong if not stronger, because you aren't relying on your active for DPS AND Mobility.

So I don't see you mentioning Braum as well for a vayne support or playing against him...no opinion?

When I wrote this guide, Braum wasn't released yet. If Vayne is laning with Braum, he is actually one of my most favorite supports to play with right now. It could be just because of the newness of the champion, but I like the stun mechanic on his passive and it combos pretty well with Vayne's silver bolts procs and her stun. I don't really think the lane itself is that overpowered, but can do very well and is pretty safe to pick. Braum's defensive capabilities make it so that whoever he is laning with, will be shielded from a lot of damage. The lane plays out similarly to how you would expect a Janna lane to run except that they have insane "all-in" and "peel" potential.

Braum against Vayne? Fairly annoying as he is annoying in general, but he's not too hard for Vayne to take down. If Vayne is ever losing to a Braum lane, it likely has more to do with the AD Carry being allowed to play overaggressively and not be punished, than it does with Braum. However, Braum can still cc Vayne with his passive and Q and the amount of damage he deals is nothing to sneeze at during laning phase. His kit adds a nice dynamic to the bottom lane pool and while he won't singlehandedly change the meta, he CAN and will be right in the thick of it, even after he's been nerfed. His kit is just very strong and it synergizes with just about everyone. Much like how Thresh has "everything," Braum is very versatile, and while he doesn't have "everything," what he DOES have, more than makes up for his lack of hard engage.
