Tumble (Q): Vayne dashes and her next auto-attack deals bonus damage.

Silver Bolts (W): Every third consecutive attack or ability against an enemy deals bonus true damage.

Condemn (E): Knocks back an enemy. If they hit a wall, they are stunned.

Skill Order: W > Q > E, with R whenever available.

Vayne Top General Playstyle:

Vayne Top during the Laning Phase:

Vayne is weak early, so focus on farming and avoiding trades. Use Q to dodge skill shots and E to disengage.

Vayne Top in the Mid Game:

Look for skirmishes and use your mobility to outplay opponents.

Vayne Top in the Late Game:

Vayne shines here. Position well in team fights, focus on taking down priority targets, and use your Q and R for mobility and outplay potential.

Vayne Top during Team Fights:

Stay in the backline and focus on the closest threat. Use Q for repositioning and E to peel for yourself. Activate R for the bonus AD and invisibility.

Vayne Top Objectives:

Dragon: Provide vision and be ready to contest or secure it.

Baron: Same as Dragon, but also look for potential picks before starting it.

Vayne Top Matchups:

Bad Matchups: Pantheon (Extreme threat due to his early damage. Play safe and look for poke.)

Good Matchups: Yuumi (Ideal synergy. Free lane.)

Additional Advice on how to play Vayne on the Top Lane:

Vayne has a high skill ceiling but is a rewarding champion when mastered. She has a weak early game but becomes a powerhouse late game. Positioning is key, and utilizing terrain with her E can turn fights in your favor.

in the top lane, it's not about how many times you get ganked, but how stylishly you outplay them. Keep on tumbling, and may your crits always land true. Until next time, keep rocking with the Vayne Top Guide 13.16!
