Summoner Spells Back to Top

Take smite for obvious reasons.

Flash, for it's utility in general on all champions, but it also makes you able to initiate really well in combination with your Q (will get to that later in the tips and tricks section)

Runes Back to Top

  • 9x
    +0.95 attack damage Greater Mark of Attack Damage
  • 9x
    +0.16 magic resist per level Greater Glyph of Scaling Magic Resist
  • 9x
    +1 armor Greater Seal of Armor
  • 3x
    +2.25 attack damage Greater Quintessence of Attack Damage

I'm using attack damage reds and quints now. Although I haven't had much testing with it, I feel as if it makes damage output go way higher then before, and you don't really need the attack speed reds anymore because I max W.

Standard yellows and blues, no need for explanation.

Armor seals are self explanatory.

Magic resist per level as you won't be taking much AP damage until late game.

I take w at level 1 because it grants you attack speed, does -% armor to creeps, and also procs % physical damage every 3 hits, which is pretty much a built in wriggles on Vi.

I actually max Q now due to the buffs to jungle camps, in particular the small ones, for example raptors. If you don't max Q, or atleast have 2-3 points into it, they won't die to a Q E combo, and will require 2 E's.

Max w second due to % damage and attack speed.

E is just a auto attack reset so isn't important to max at all.

Ult whenever possible.

Items Back to Top

Starting Items

    STANDARD START
    1st back
    Buy this item ASAP on vi as it's better than anything else you can get.

Core Items

    I build the following items in this order. (the boots is whenever, finish jungle item 1st, into blade, into cleaver, and randuins is usually next buy into spirit visage). If you are going to complain "oh you are so squishy doing this build" you are doing my play style wrong. You just farm all day, get % damage items and % armor reduction items. Once you get these 3 items, you are set to build FULL TANK after. Although if you are bad, you can delay it, but you won't do nearly as much damage and able to make the "PLAYS" I do in my games.
    Ninja tabi for 90% of games. Merc only if you 100% need it.
    Get this before/after spirit visage depending what you need.
    This is my standard end game Vi build for my games.
    Buy this item to replace your spirit of the elder lizard. It has better stats, and similiar attack damage. It's just really useful late game, but make sure you only get it if you went the ninja tabi route (which is more then likely)
    This item is great if you're ahead. The movement speed and the procs with your E help ton's with your damage.
    This will be your magic resist item. If you need MR, skip randuins and build chain vest into negatron cloak. This item is very important as with this build you will be focused.
    This is your FINAL FINAL build when you get a ton of gold. The last item depends on what you need (you sell the jungle item). Zephr can be really good if they have a lot of CC, but if magic burst damage is the issue, build a locket/spirit visage instead. Usually, the AD is the biggest problem however, so I usually go with frozen heart.

Situational Items

    There isn't really many situation things... As others should build items such as locket really.

STANDARD BUILD:

Machete 2 pots.

1st back buy boots and ranger trail. I highly perfer this as it helps me get mana/hp in the jungle as well as faster clearing as it is my perfered style.

Back again and buy longswords and/or warrior enchantment.

After you build your core items, get the following based on the situation.

Cutlass for the attack damage and life steal. Vi's attack damage ratios are crazy, and the life steal makes her able to be a sustained fighter.

Finish off your blade of the ruined king.,,

Black cleaver for the 25 additional AD, and the % armor shred, helps your team, as well as yourself. Makes tank not tanky and carries easier to kill. The health is also nice for Vi's passive along with blade of the ruin king..

Get Ninja tabi in most of your games. These boots are too overpowered due to the % reduction and how low of a cost it is. Merc treads are also very viable now due to morgana supports popularity...

Get guardian angel is they have decent/good ap damage. Start building the chain 1st into negatron into the finished item.

Randuin's for the armor, health, and active. Work's very well in combo with your ult into a active of this item. The health is very important on this item. Vi's passive makes her more of a tank then she looks.

VS

Amumu

Hard

Probably her toughest match up. Anumu's tankyness and damage just sorta wrecks her in 1v1, needs nerfs.

Avoid fighting him, try to counter him when possible though.

(THIS IS ASSUMING THE AMUMU BUILDS ARMOR)

VS

Cho'Gath

Medium

He can't kill you, you can't kill him. Just farm and gank whenever. You can only kill him really if hes low or you have a teammate neary by.

He does become a problem mid-late game skirmishes if he feasts you, as single target damage is VI's weakness.

VS

Fiddlesticks

Easy

RAPE

VS

Hecarim

Easy

You destroy him in 1v1 combat. Unless he has teammates nearby, he won't be a problem.

VS

Jarvan IV

Medium

Haven't seen a jungle Jarven vs my Vi, but his armor prob is good againts Vi. Not sure...

VS

Lee Sin

Medium

You out damage him, but you have to make sure not to get free damage by him and trade with him when you are fighting with him.

I really only worry about him early, with red invades.... Besides that hes easy.

VS

Lulu

Hard

*Note I am talking about support lulu*

Lulu is just op in general, her slow, knock back, and burst damage is just make's Vi ability to assassinate and stick on targets a pain.

BAN HER IF YOU WANT TO PLAY VI WITHOUT WORRY.

VS

Malphite

Easy

He can't beat you in a duel, due to your passive, his initial burst will do literally nothing, but hes hard to chase down. Can only kill him if hes low, or you have your ult.

Your w pretty much rapes him too hard.

VS

Maokai

Medium

You can kill him if you catch him low, but if not you won't be able too. His cc is annoying so...

VS

Nautilus

Easy

You wreck him throughout the game. He's just a tank pretty much with cc and not much damage unless he builds it. Even if he does, you should be able to kick his ass.

VS

Nocturne

Easy

He is a assassin 1v1 duelist, you can easily beat him due to your CC compared to his. Just ult him when his fear is about to go off and he won't be able to make use of his fear at all.

VS

Olaf

Medium

You can beat him in a duel as long as you get a fully charged Q in before the fight, but the disadvantage you have is that his ult counters yours. Try to time your ult so you are channeling it and connect with him as soon as his ult runs out.

VS

Shaco

Medium

You can beat him in any duel, as long as he doesn't have his ult and it's mid game. Early game though, when he gets hit ult, you cannot beat him if he uses it. The clone gets in the way of your Q, and it also can make you miss your ult.

He will constantly just annoy you and take your buffs, as you cannot really chase him if he does take them.

VS

Shyvana

Medium

She can beat you easily if she gets a surprise attack on you or if she finds you when you find her. The only way you can beat her is if you get a fully charged Q before she damages you at all. (This is assuming you both have the same farm)

She is really hard to chase down, as she will most likely try to counter jungle you a lot. Try to time your ult as soon as shes about to dragon form, as it will CC her mid jump. This is hard to do, as you have to guess what they are thinking inside their head, via when to ult away. Just think to yourself if you were shyvana, when would you ult?

VS

Teemo

Hard

This guys damage over time and blind screws you up. Try to avoid him or just ban the dam devil.

VS

Xin Zhao

Easy

He's only hard if you don't build any armor such as ninja tabi or he gets really fed. As always, if you get a fully charged Q in, your going to beat him.

TIPS AND TRICKS Back to Top

When jungling with vi, be sure to use your shield up before using your smite on it (assuming you bought the one I have in this guide, it will stun it and heal you). Let it damage you a bit so the jungler item activates as you only get mana/hp back once a neutral camp attacks you, not if you attack it...

Remember to make use of you're passive. You can bait people when your at 200 health because late game you get a 300+ damage soaking shield when you hit a ability.

When going in for a gank, always try to start it with your Q, instead of your ult unless your laner has cc of their own. This is because a simple flash or blink will let them get away from you, with no possibility of catching up to them.

Some people play really safe, so a really neat trick to do that can be hard to pull off at 1st is charging up your Q and flash and release your Q. This will cover 2x the amount of distance you would normally be able to, and it will surprise your enemies most likely, as some girl coming at you with a fist 800+ distance away isn't something you see every day.

Always reset your auto attack animation with a Auto>E>auto>auto>E. This is Vi's basic combo for ganking and clearing jungle creeps.

Remember that your E is a shock wave, so if you need to finish off someone or a creep, just E something in the direction that the champion is, and you will deal the full damage of the E without even being next to them. Note that this can be used on towers.

If you do initiate with your ult, always use your Q right away to knock them back a bit, as it is a mini stun, and it won't allow them to flash or use a jump if they have it.

Use your Q's mobility to go over walls to avoid wards. Any champion that has the ability to go over walls already has a lot of potential to be a top tier champ.


In small skirmishes, right before your about to be hit by a stun or a knock up, always use your ult to avoid it. This allows for more damage to be put out by you and a waste of cc on their part (requires timing).


Charging your Q to the max and releasing to cover distance makes u travel faster compared to just walking. When you have a blue buff, or mana to spare, always just use it to make the best use of time, as every second counts!


Vi is a very effective split pushers. Simply E the melee minions, charge your Q, and then E back on the caster minions towards the melee. This should fully clear the way. She also can destroy towers due to her E auto attack reset.

Try to get your 3 hit w proc on someone before Ulting or even using your Q on someone. The Armor reduction really increases the damage these abilities will deal.



PROS AND CONS OF VI Back to Top

PROS:

She can kill objectives really fast, due to her W % damage.

Her mobility allows her to be really hard to chase.

Her Neon skin she wears spandex so you get to see DAT ASS better and also she got really nice boobs.

CONS:

NONE
