With the Botrk nerfs and Bt shield which one should I build on Vayne?

It's always been choice based on playstyle. I don't pretend to know anything about vayne, but I know some people that like Botrk and some that like BT, I don't think it'll change that much because of the changes

Thanks for responding so fast
I think I will rush bloodthirster so the shield will protect her squishiness early game.
I need to practice with her more now that Twitch was nerfed hard.

Bork has always been the choice of Vayners simlpy because Vayne is a 1v1 specialist and Bork just assists that thought process. Now, more than ever, BoRK is made for Vayne as it has a higher % HP with her W passive, it makes eating targets a breeze.

BoRK > BT on Vayne almost always. Also, Bork gives attack speed, Vayne already gets a badass bump in AD from her ultimate, the Bork is just far superior compared to BT on her.

BoRK = more speed, better at shredding champions with lots of health (more so post 4.10); better for pure auto-attack champs.

BT = more AD, lifesteal; better for champs whose abilities scale with AD (MF, Sivir, Caitlyn). May be offset by the new Essence Reaver item (CDR, manasteal) for such champs, at least as a first item.

Vayne = BoRK.

Not necessarily. Vayne should certainly take the BtoRK if she is planning to split push, but if she is just going to stick with the team, the BT has merit. Used to be because of the huge amount of life steal, now it's because the shield will help her. I don't know which one's better, I'm just playing devil's advocate.

Botrk by a mile now, Bt was nerfed and cost went up while botrk was buffed

BoTRK also got a nerf to all of the stats it had excluding the passive burn.... why are people still thinking it is good to rush this item? From what I have heard higher elo players saying it isn't worth getting unless you need the passive burn and since BT is made specifically for dueling I would think that would mean it is made for Vayne. Just follow BT with a zeal and you should be fine right?

BOTH. Because you didn't ask which to get FIRST.
