Most time one does the job but no more than two if you must.

Only go 1. Rush bf sword then finish zerkers, get a zeal and vamp scepter, finish ie or bt, finish pd, get last whisper, get qss... no need for more than 1 pd.

That black cleaver ought to be a last whisper, incidentally.

I'd go 6. That puts you at 2.9 Attack speed, 180% crit, and incredible movespeed.

The 180% crit allows you to double-crit for triple damage (3.2x with offense mastery) which is awesome.

The movespeed really helps her lack of mobility, since clearly she has no escape mechanism.


------OK ok, end sarcasm. Honestly Vayne is so OP that she can go with just about any build and do well. She has AD sterioid if you want to go AS/AD/crit, but her true damage on-hit also promotes AS/onhit items like Kog Maw takes. Since tumble gives a pseudo-AS increase by itself and she can move around kiting, she can play an AD caster style with really heavy AD and still do well.

Either of these 3 styles works just fine.

The above post is so wrong I suggest everyone ignore it.

I hear gullible is in the dictionary.


There's no reason to get more than one phantom dancer because you're already getting an IE on virtually every character who'd want a phantom dancer, and getting that second one is proportionally more expensive because you're gearing crit that doesn't actually do anything.

You don't want to automatically assume you'll have a last whisperer; unless the entire enemy team is packing 100+ armor you don't want it, least of all on a character who's auto-attacks also deal true damage every third hit. In that sense, black cleaver is actually a better item in most situations.

No, the "serious" stuff at the end, about Vanye having "three good builds" is non-sense. She has one.

If you go attack speed and on-hit, like the guy suggested, you are a worse version of Teemo. It's a terrible build that ignores why Vayne is a good champion. If you do this, you are signing your team to playing a 4v5.


And the "AD Caster" build and the "range carry" build are the same build.

You have a bad habit of going into a thread simply for the purpose of disrupting the thread's topic and trolling other forum members without contributing ANY useful advice related to the OP or any of the subsequent posts.

PLEASE STOP DOING THIS!!!

To the OP...

One PD is plenty. You primarily want the AS and Crit combo, but after your first one, you should be just fine.

As for BC, I'm kind of with Cenerae when he says that you should be using LW instead. Unless, of course, you rush an early Brutalizer, and you end up with YMG and BC, which puts your Apen at almost 100 with just 3 attacks.

You SHOULD be rushing either IE or BT, though...and getting one PD for those will make you much more threatening. Good luck in your games!

Replace the zerks with another PD. 3 PDs = the same movespeed as Zerks.
