Item Build Description

Additional information on the items

Starting Items

  • Long SwordLong Sword in order to easier last hit minions.
  • Boots of SpeedBoots of Speed is taken if you are facing an enemy with a lot of catch potential (E.g. Fiora & Camille)

First Recall

Crit Build

  • Blade of the Ruined KingBlade of the Ruined King as your standard item
  • [gluttoneous graves] because they are the only good offensive boots. If you need more speed you can go for Boots of SwiftnessBoots of Swiftness or Mercury's TreadsMercury's Treads if the enemy team has a lot of stuns
  • Phantom DancerPhantom Dancer is a great build as it gives you a shield as well as crit and attack speed
  • Infinity EdgeInfinity Edge simply empowers your critical strikes, which you need for this critical build
  • Death's DanceDeath's Dance is a good item that gives you lfe steal and also causes all damage towards you to act as a bleed, meaning you have a few extra seconds to life steal damage that would kill you
  • Finally Rapid FirecannonRapid Firecannon is a good purchase as a final offensive item. If you feel like you die a lot you can go for [guardian's angel] or Frozen MalletFrozen Mallet for extra health

This build is useful against enemies that do not have a lot of ways to jump on you, e.g. Mundo, Garen, etc.

Tank Build

  • Blade of the Ruined KingBlade of the Ruined King as your standard item. Buy Boots of SpeedBoots of Speed before or after you finish this item.
  • Frozen MalletFrozen Mallet second in order to slow down enemies with each attack, which should allow you to kite them with ease.
  • [gluttoneous graves] because they are the only good offensive boots. If you need more speed you can go for Boots of SwiftnessBoots of Swiftness or Mercury's TreadsMercury's Treads if the enemy team has a lot of stuns
  • Phantom DancerPhantom Dancer is a great build as it gives you a shield as well as crit and attack speed
  • Infinity EdgeInfinity Edge simply empowers your critical strikes, which you need for this critical build
  • Dead Man's PlateDead Man's Plate gives you movement speed, health, armour and also allows you to chunk down enemies with your first hit. As an alternative you can go for [Guardian's angel] or Black CleaverBlack Cleaver for health and ad penetration against tanky targets.

This build gives you a little bit more health, and slows/movement speed which should allow you to kite away and catch enemies much faster. More useful if you feel like you get deleted too quickly, or if the enemy team has a lot of escapes.

Flex Items

  • Stasis EnchantStasis Enchant is a must have against champions like Fizz, Zed, Orianna, etc that can delete you with one ability.
  • Quicksilver EnchantQuicksilver Enchant is useful if the enemy team has CC, e.g. Amumu, Annie, Ashe, Jax, etc.
  • Teleport EnchantTeleport Enchant can be taken if you fall too far behind and need to spend all your time towards farming
  • Maw of MalmortiusMaw of Malmortius is good against heavy AP compositions
  • BloodthirsterBloodthirster is useful for 1v1 duels. If you get focused by a lot of enemy champions then Death's DanceDeath's Dance is better for survivability.
  • Mortal ReminderMortal Reminder if the enemy team builds a crazy amount of armour or has e.g. a Soraka
  • Black CleaverBlack Cleaver for the tank build if you need more ad, movement speed and health. Can be used instead of Dead man's plate.


Question: Why are there no AD Penetration items in these builds?

  • Vayne's Silver BoltsSilver Bolts deals true damage, meaning that even if an enemy has 9999 armour, you will still deal a lot of damage. A lot of her damage comes from that ability, so it isn't really necessary to build Mortal ReminderMortal Reminder or Black CleaverBlack Cleaver unless facing e.g. Malphite. As Vayne, your goal is to stay alive and hit as many auto attacks as possible as she will be able to shred through tanks. Assassins, ad carries and supports do not tend to build a lot of armour anyways as they would sacrifice a lot of their damage for some defence, meaning that you will still be able to one shot them with a crit build.

He has no way to engage on you apart from Decisive StrikeDecisive Strike and flash. If he does that, just attack him until he is near and then use CondemnCondemn to throw him back. Don't let him jump on you, or he will try to burst you.

Vayne

Information

See my primary vayne guide

Generally speaking same concept applies.

  • If you win your lane, just dominate by pushing, poking and diving.
  • If you lost your lane, play safe and focus on last hitting minions to come out strong in the mid/late phases of the game.
