Item Build Description

Additional information on the items

  • Blade of the Ruined KingBlade of the Ruined King provides you with some great damage especially against tankier opponents which is where Vayne shines the most, it also steals some of the enemies movement speed which helps with your shorter range
  • Statikk ShivStatikk Shiv is an amazing item in Wild Rift due to it´s high damage output. It also helps you in case you fight multiple opponents to spread your damage across more than one target.
  • Stasis EnchantStasis Enchant is probably the most used item for ADCs since it adds a panic button to your loadout and turns you into a glorious golden unkillable being for 2.5seconds
  • Gluttonous GreavesGluttonous Greaves are a great way to double up on physical vampirism and keep you alive during prolonged fights
  • Infinity EdgeInfinity Edge is a must have at some point for almost every ADC since it adds a significant boost to your critical damage
  • Mortal ReminderMortal Reminder as your last item really enhances your "lethality" (armor penetration) potential + the true damage from your loadout turns you into an unstoppable force

Summoner Spells

When to take which summoners

Barrier
A good item in every situation as an ADC. Great for 1v1 or when being ganked
Ignite
A risky spell that looses it´s power later in the game when Vayne starts to be powerful (not recommended)
Heal
In case your support doesn´t take it and you feel like you want that extra heal for the early game
Flash
MUST HAVE item. It provides you with a great way to reposition yourself or get out of harms way

Early Game Farming Advice

Starting of with a Long SwordLong Sword is the way to go. It will build into your first T3 item Blade of the Ruined KingBlade of the Ruined King . Help out your jungler if possible before you head to lane but make sure to reach it by 0.35min since that´s about the time when the first minion dies.

Be aware of any bush ganks when you arrive and start attacking the wave. You will most likely loose the wave push so relax and let it walk under your tower. When farming under your tower keep the following things in mind to effectively farm:

  • You will most likely be pushed under your tower so make sure to hit minions last
  • You are one of the weakest ADCs right now so don´t get overconfident
  • Punish the enemy for overstepping but keep it to a short trade
  • Keep an eye on your minimap, being pushed under tower is the perfect chance for your jungler to gank your lane. If that happens stay calm not to alert the enemy and only engage as soon as the jungler revealed themself
  • If you manage to get ahead in gold. Don´t risk dying but try to deny the enemy last hits by using your CondemnCondemn to push them away or engage with a quick TumbleTumble + Silver BoltsSilver Bolts combo
  • Don´t get frustrated because of a weaker early game, you will carry later and redeem yourself


Vayne

Teamfight advice

A few tips on improving your teamfight:

  • Ask yourself if this teamfight is providing any advantage or is it purely for kills? Wild Rift is an objective game ALWAYS keep that in mind
  • You are single target damage only so don´t switch targets too much, focuse one then the next after a takedown
  • Your Silver BoltsSilver Bolts are amazing against tanks so don´t be afraid to target them if you can´t reach the adc in the backline
  • "Front to back" is your best chance meaning you will target the closes enemy while staying as far away as possible, then move to the next enemy while still staying on max range
  • Movement changes with TumbleTumble can throw of the enemy and make them loose you in a fight

Your carry time

Once you get your first items Blade of the Ruined KingBlade of the Ruined King , Statikk ShivStatikk Shiv , Gluttonous GreavesGluttonous Greaves and maybe even a third item Phantom DancerPhantom Dancer it´s time to fight.

  • You will win most 1v1s in this stage of the game, especially while under Final HourFinal Hour
  • Help with every teamfight that breaks out, you are the win condition in this stage of the game however try not to be in the frontline
  • Don´t get caught alone = don´t run around the enemy jungle with no backup
  • Clear out enemy jungle camps with your duo or team to deny the enemy comeback potential as well as buffs and gold


In this phase of the game you have the power to end it

  • force dragon fights with your team meaning you start it and the enemy has to either go there or they loose any chance of winning
  • take down turrets with your team and force the enemy to defend
  • roam around the map and "assert dominance" you should be feared and make the enemy scared to push up too far
  • put down some wards in the enemy jungle to avoid being flanked and always keep an eye on them to make sure you have the advantage
  • force a baron fight with your team. Either the enemy responds or they loose


VayneVayne possesses true 1v9 potential in this stage of the game so play aggressively but also don´t overextend for no reason. No matter how strong you are, it´s still a team game.

When to pick Vayne?

VayneVayne offers great value against tanky champions:

VayneVayne being a hypercarry synergizes well with:

  • AlistarAlistar since his HeadbuttHeadbutt + PulverizePulverize makes it easy for you to get some good damage in. He also offers great frontline potential and lifts some focuse off you
  • NamiNami serves the same purpose with her Aqua PrisonAqua Prison + her Ebb And FlowEbb And Flow gives you some nice slowing effect with your auto attacks
  • LuluLulu offers everything you need: Extra attack speed, shield, health, movement speed but she is also short range and late game scaling
  • BraumBraum can be a great support since your attack speed will be quite high and BraumBraum is also very good early game as well as late game so he can help you with the early game pressure
