DH5: 063 -Vayne, The Night Hunter
This time it's everyone's favorite Van Helsinger Vayne! Shown here fixing her wrist mounted crossbow and hunting down a fierce Lord of the night! Vayne is another character who's design I'm not too crazy about. It's Like an amalgamation of Trinity from the Matrix, Bayonetta, and a female Blade or Van Helsing. One of those characters that's just "Too cool" and serious. Her attacks look pretty neat and her constant tumbling around and pinning enemies into walls makes her visually interesting on the field.
In game Vayne Is a menace, usually at the earlier stages of the game if she stays aggressive enough she can pretty much take apart anybody. The only thing that I've learned about dealing with her is to remain calm and wait till mid and end game where you can gear up and deal with her properly. I've had a few games now were she'll snag a ton of early kills but we eventually turn it around once our tanks tank up and everyone else gets some armor or other way of dealing with her. Sion and any on demand stunner can usually hard counter her in a way thats very satisfying. Nothing quite compares to seeing a well timed cryptic gaze stop her constant tumbling and prime her for a death's caress burst. Is anyone a fan of this fang stealing female? If so, then load up your wrist mounted crossbow and dial in some comments below!
