Thanks to some big buffs that just arrived for Vayne on the PBE, her identity as a tank-shredding hyper carry is being solidified. Because that buffs is so huge.
The exact details of the buff mean that her ultimate will be an absolute game changer now. While the ultimate ability, Final Hour, is active, every enemy champion that dies within three seconds of her last attack on them will heal her instantly for 20 percent of their maximum health. For context, let’s watch closely at the health Vayne is given after taking down a Cho’Gath with 1,700 health.
And Her Silver Bolts (W) is being buffed to deal more true damage at max rank. At rank five, it will deal 14 percent max health, up from 12.
Her Q is being slightly reworked, too. The bonus damage will no longer be able to crit, taking away a large portion of her ability to two-shot squishy targets, which is a nerf against squishier targets.
Before Vayne’s update goes live in Patch 7.17, it wouldn’t surprise us to see the new ultimate buff brought down a bit, perhaps to 10 percent max health return instead of 20. Either way, this will no doubt make Vayne a more popular pick in today’s Meta
