FOTM Report: Vayne at 20% Play Rate, 54% Win Rate?!

Leave a Comment
 Vayne is currently sitting at an unheard of top play rate AND top win rate for marksmen. The last time this happened, it was with release Graves, the tankiest marksman ever to grace the rift, who was also conveniently unkillable.

In this case, Vayne's found a way to completely mitigate her early game weakness for a free ticket to the late game Vayne-spotting show. By using variations on the relic shield meta, she's finding success from every angle. 

Introduction

Vayne is currently sitting at an unheard of top play rate AND top win rate for marksmen. The last time this happened, it was with release Graves, the tankiest marksman ever to grace the rift.

In this case, Vayne's found a way to completely mitigate her early game weakness for a free ticket to the late game Vayne-spotting show. By using variations on the relic shield meta, she's finding success from every angle. 

Check out the scoop below!

Rune Setup




The rune page above is the HIGHEST win rate setup for Vayne, sitting at 58.88% with a 7.2% pick rate.

Most players opt to go Domination as a secondary tree instead of Socery, but Celerity from Sorcery is performing better than the additional life steal from Domination.

Meanwhile, you'll also notice that this particular setup opts to go for Legend:Bloodline rather than Alacrity to make up for the healing power lost from the Domination tree.

Overall, a variety of setups work fine as long as you get Fleet Footwork and Overheal.

Current Build


As you can see from the build above, the current Vayne is less pure attack speed-based and instead relies on getting a big first hit on initiation. 

Advantages

Single Attack - Heal + Waveclear + Poke
The Infinity Edge + Statikk Shiv + Fleet Footwork combo gives an incredible amount of sustain for Vayne, and she can heal to full using a single auto attack while simultaneously poking enemy teams with the Statikk Shiv proc.

Safe Early Game
As mentioned multiple times, this build gives Vayne an extremely easy time early game.

Tank Killer + Squishy Killer
The crit build allows Vayne to solo both tanks and squishies with ease, resulting in a very difficult champion to deal with in both team-fights and split-pushes.

Counters

Right now it looks like the top three marksmen that counter Vayne are Quinn, Kog'Maw, and Tristana.

For Quinn there's really a very low amount of data considering nobody plays Quinn as a marksman, but she can certainly delete Vayne by one-shotting her.

Kog'Maw seems more of a team fight oriented late-game advantage.

Tristana on the other hand, can push Vayne into turret early to mid to prevent clean farming, and she is also one of the few "assassin" type ADCs that can 1v1 Vayne on even terms. 

Conclusions

Vayne is incredibly strong in the current meta as a result of her ability to snowball through early into mid to late. If you don't care about playing against her, then picking Tristana against her is a decent counter. However, for the most part, you're probably better off just banning her.
