Vex Matchups Overview
Vex General information
Whenever an enemy uses a dash, make sure you deal damage to them as you can deal extra damage to marked targets.
Use your Ultimate R on targets that are moving across the map. Reactivate your Ultimate R once they leave will allow you to follow them and possibly equal out the numbers at the fight.
Use your W to block abilities that deal large amounts of damage. Do not use it to block small damage like auto-attacks early.
Every combo you need to master the champion!
