Vex Matchups Overview

Vex General information

Vex tips and tricks

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 Shadow SurgeR on targets that are moving across the map. Reactivate your Ultimate Shadow SurgeR once they leave will allow you to follow them and possibly equal out the numbers at the fight.

Use your Personal SpaceW to block abilities that deal large amounts of damage. Do not use it to block small damage like auto-attacks early.
