In my last game, I came across a guy on my team who thought that Late game Shen could easily destroy a late game Vayne in a 1v1 duel with no interruptions.

Shen did not seem to grasp the concept of %max health true damage.

Your thoughts?

Vayne is the one champ a Shen doesn't taunt, lul.

A good Shen would indeed win. Tanks will win most 1v1`s when it comes down to full builds.

Hint hint buy a Rylai

Okay, apparently I have to spell it out for people who can`t think outside the box. The Rylai gives more damage on a person with no resistances, more hp to take damage which works well with other tanky items, and it gives a slow that you can use every 3 seconds that keeps Vayne right in front of you.

yeah it could happen, it isn't as set in stone like kassadin or leblanc vs a mage.

It's called lifesteal.

And I'd be interested in how a shen intends to reach vayne with her movespeed from PD, Tumble, Condemn, stealth, etc.
Maybe if she stands next to him and lets him taunt her he could win, idk.

Shen can beat Vayne 1v1 if he builds to do that. I wouldn't build to do that, but it's one option.

Um..

Care to expand on how? You're going to need more than Thornmail and assuming both champs have full builds Vayne's damage output will be tremendous.

Bruisers and tanks will generally beat AD carries 1v1 (assuming they build as they normally do in 5v5 games). You gain a lot more tankiness from items than damage. Bruisers/tanks would be able to take down the ADC's low HP pool with their base damages.

Sure Vayne will be doing lots of damage, but Shen has far more health/armor. Sure Shen won't do a lot of damage, but Vayne likely has at most one defensive item.

Mercs, Rylai, Thornmail, Omen, Zhonya, Gunblade (Does more good than Wota). There. You just beat Vayne.
