Laning Against Vex

Laning Against Vex

Avoid going into melee range when Vex’s Personal SpaceW is up as it not only shields her but also deals damage to enemies close to her.

Standing outside of the minion wave at all times will help you counter Vex and prevent her from being able to use her Mistral BoltQ to push the minion wave and poke you at the same time.

When recalling, keep an eye on your positioning as Vex’s Ultimate Shadow SurgeR could be used to snipe you and kill you. Try and recall behind minions or out of vision.

Strategy VS Vex

Strategy VS Vex

Look out for Vex’s Ultimate Shadow SurgeR as she can use it to pick enemies off. She can also use it again if the marked target dies.

Try and split up slightly so Vex cannot deal lots of AOE damage with her Mistral BoltQ and Looming DarknessE.

Baiting out Vex’s Personal SpaceW with poke before initiating a fight could be very beneficial as she will miss out on the shield to protect herself with. Her damage output will also be reduced too.

At level 6, Vex will unlock her Ultimate Shadow SurgeR. Her kill pressure and pick pressure increase dramatically at this stage of the game.

The more gold Vex gets under her belt, the stronger she will be. Respect her damage output after she has picked up her first component item.

When Vex completes her Mythic item, her wave clear and poke in lane will become devastating. Watch your positioning and stay out of the minion wave.
