How it works

  1. You rush Trinity Force.
  2. You play Vi as Bruiser. You build some damage and go tanky.

How to play

  1. Enemy team heavy on AP? Buy MR. Are they heavy on AD? Buy Armor. You need some damage? Well buy that.

Tips and Tricks

  1. Q Flash combo: You can do Q (can be done in any direction), and at the very end of animation you Flash into an enemy.
  1. A fully charged Vault Breaker will deal double damage. It's great for catching and finishing off fleeing enemies.
  2. Relentless Force does full damage to anyone caught in the shockwave. Use it on minions in lane to hit enemies hiding behind them.
  3. Cease and Desist is a powerful initiation tool, just remember not to get too far ahead of the rest of your team.
