Flash - League of Legends
Smite - League of Legends


Vi has good jungle clear and is great at contesting neutral objectives, thanks to the attack speed granted by Dented Blows. She really comes online at level 6, and can control enemy champions with good mobility pretty well. Use her to initiate trades or teamfights, and do as much damage as she can before succumbing. 

  • Level 1 - Take W - Denting Blows, for the extra damage and attack speed.
  • Level 2 - Take E - Relentless Force, for more damage and quicker wave clear. 
  • First Back - Start working towards your Divine Sunderer.

Tips & Tricks

  • When you use Cease and Desist you'll land behind your opponent, meaning you can then use Vault Breaker to push them towards your team.
  • Once you launch your Cease and Desist you'll follow your target, even if they use Flash.
  • You can pass through walls with Vault Breaker.
  • You can chain Vault Breaker to get closer to an enemy, before melting through them with Cease and Desist. However, given these are your mobility spells, be careful not to get stranded.
  • You can use Flash after activating Vault Breaker to surprise your enemy, before knocking them back.
