after some time the stat of dodge was made fairly useless due to all the ability based dps heroes with few auto attacks. dodge counters auto attackers pretty hard, vayne is an auto attacker pretty much exclusively.

how does dodge help? if you dodge the attack the silver bullet proc is not applied therefore she can be denied alot of damage if she is at max range trying for a 3 shot combo. since the proc only last about a second dodging an attack can reset the count if theres a pause in attacks, can also save you from that killing blow from the tumble attack denying soo much damage.

with just dodge seals, ninja tabi and mastery your sitting on about 20% dodge. not bad odds. with the new addition of tenacity items mercs are no longer compulsary and there are alternatives letting you have the option of dodge again.

its not a reliable counter but its better than nothing. so if an enemy vayne is giving you problems consider grabing ninja for the 12% dodge since most of her damage is auto attacks thats 12% less damage you take.

Good thinking.
Personally though, her true damage only makes for a small portion of the damage that she's ditching out.
Has anyone ever given a thought about the fact that it's not Silver Arrow that is killing you, but the kiting? Given a similar situation against any other ranged champ (starting the fight at their max range), any ranged DPS can kite a tank to death relatively quickly, whether it be Trist, TF, Ashe, KOGGGGGG, Teemo...well, the list goes on.

My trick is stop worrying about Silver Arrow. It takes 30 actions on you for that thing to kill you. In a real fight, chances are you will die simply to the auto attack damage. If you just happened to get caught kiting, then it's the same against any ranged carry anyway.
