Best Vayne Skins in League of Legends (All Ranked)

I’m not Gosu, but I can still appreciate the crazy hyper charger known as Vayne.

Crushing tanks like it’s nobody’s business, sneaking in and out, and pinning people to a wall just as lightning strikes them through their hearts. What is there not to love?

And while its mechanics are pretty top-notch, you may want to spruce up its appearance a bit, as its base model isn’t exactly the best. But how do you know which one to buy?

Hopefully, that’s a question we can help with as we’ve ranked all of the Vayne skins released so far.

12. Dragon Slayer Vayne

Released: Aug 24, 2011 Price: 975 RP

When you hear the word “dragon slayer,” you expect some badass level from Skyrim.

On the one hand, you have skins like Dragonslayer Pantheon that fully comply with this concept and make you feel truly powerful.

While on the other hand, you get Dragonslayer Vayne.

It doesn’t look like she slays dragons, but more like a girl who just tripped over a dead dragon and decides she wants to use her face.

It just doesn’t make a lot of sense.

Also, it is priced at 975 RP and only offers a silly character model change and no animation change.

I would definitely not recommend this one.

11. Soulstealer Vayne

Released: July 28, 2016 Price: 10 gemstones

I had so much hope in this skin.

Now I’m not going to sit here and tell you that skin is ugly, because it isn’t.

What it is, it’s somewhat mediocre, especially considering the price.

It’s one of the most expensive skins in the game, and yet all we get is a coat of green paint.

There aren’t even any new voice lines, for crying out loud!

If the skin was priced at 750 or 975 RP, it would have moved up several places on this list. But I cannot recommend such an expensive and mediocre skin to anyone.

10. Aristocrat Vayne

Released: May 10, 2011 Price: 520 RP

I like where this skin was pointing, but I think Riot slightly missed the mark.

A Hellsing skin would fit Vayne perfectly. But aristocrat Vayne seems a bit stupid.

His hair looks like a peacock feather and his glasses seem too small for his eyes.

I can’t say the skin is absolutely terrible and considering it’s so cheap, my expectations weren’t too high.

But I’m not very excited about it.

If I had a few small tweaks I’m sure it could be great. But for now, it will remain here in the rankings.

9. Vindicator Vayne

Released: May 10, 2011 Price: 520 RP

This skin simply suffered greatly from the passage of time, as by modern standards it looks more like a chroma than a fully developed skin.

The color scheme definitely works well on the character model, and the updated welcome art is quite beautiful.

But there is not much to say other than that.

Again, it is very cheap fur. So I can’t hate him too much.

But it’s only worth it if you just want a simple color change for the base model and not a single theme.

8. SKT T1 Vayne

Released: May 4, 2014 Price: 750 RP

Visually, this skin is fine.

It features a simple color swap with Vayne dressed in red clothing and sporting a gold bow.

It looks great and I honestly can’t pick any singular design option that I don’t agree with.

It also came after the 2013 World Championships, so if you really like the professional scene, it is sure to become a valuable possession for you.

And all of that for just 750 RP.

Sounds like a good deal if you ask me (but probably nothing groundbreaking).

7. Heartseeker Vayne

Released: Feb 14, 2012 Price: 975 RP

While this isn’t my favorite mask from the Heatseeker lineup, I think it’s pretty decent.

The game’s character model looks appropriate, with lots of reds and whites to match the theme. And his bow features a giant heart arrow, allowing you to kill people with kindness.

There are some new animations, but they mostly come down to adding heart particles.

However, the animation for the ultimate ability is pretty sick.

It really puts you in that Valentine Massacre frame of mind.

6. Sentinel Vayne

Released: Jul 8, 2021 Price: 1820 RP

If I looked at this as avoid, I would have loved this skin.

The character model is masterfully crafted and the skin features some awesome new animations.

The Q animation is clean as hell, and both its W marker and E marker fit the part very well.

I found his ultimate ability to be a bit of a disappointment, but not by much. I also love the fact that she emote makes her pull off her original base fur outfit.

However, this skin covers a topic that we have already covered (in an upcoming election). I think it does the subject more justice, but not much.

And considering it’s one of Vayne’s most expensive skins, that will cost you a few ranks on this list.

5. FPX Vayne

Released: April 30, 2020 Price: 1350 RP

As a World skin, this one does a much better job than SKT.

Although it has the same gestures as the base skin, it features absolutely funky recall animation and some really nifty skill animations.

Everything is given a fiery theme, more evident with its W, and even the base skin is made to look much more modern and fierce.

I could see how bright reds and yellows might not appeal to some people. But personally, I quite liked it.

Also, it’s like having a piece of history, since it comes from the Championship and all that.

4. Spirit Blossom Vayne

Released: Jul 22, 2020 Price: 1350 RP

In my opinion, the following aspects are quite interchangeable, as they all bring something new to the table and do it justice.

Spirit Blossom Vayne is incredibly themed, with lots of light and dark blues, as well as a slightly demonic theme.

All the animations fit very well, the final one being the jewel in the crown.

Ulting just makes you feel like a demon hunter going to kill, and even features a hair color change, which you don’t see too often.

The only thing I have with the skin is that the “heels” that Vayne wears look pretty clumsy.

But I guess you can’t master WikiFeet and be practical at the same time.

3. Firecracker Vayne

Released: Jan 28, 2019 Price: 1350 RP

This skin is clean as hell.

Like every other aspect of the Firecracker franchise, Firecracker Vayne is very festive, with lots of reds and yellows in both the character model and animations.

The highlight for me is definitely his bow, which only reminds me of Skyrim’s dwarf aesthetic, and a bit of quality-of-life animation added to his new one.

Now when you stun a target it will fire a very clear firework, which is much easier to spot than the usual animation.

Also, they somehow made Vayne thicker, which no one will complain about.

2. Arclight Vayne

Released: Apr 25, 2015 Price: 975 RP

I have nothing bad to say about this skin. Personally, it looks like a classic to me and could have easily passed as the new base skin.

It’s not a stretch at all, and yet it manages to steer the champion in a slightly different direction.

The white-yellow color scheme works great. And none of the animations are in your face and jarring.

Like I said before, Sentinel Vayne definitely takes this theme a bit further and features a bit more polish.

But considering this skin only costs 975 RP, I think it’s too good to pass up.

1. PROJECT: Vayne

Credit: Riot Games

Released: Nov 22, 2017 Price: 1820 RP

I really thought I wouldn’t like this skin, really.

But it is without a doubt the best.

It just features so many good things that it makes the price completely reasonable.

Here are all-new voice lines, all made with that robotic voice from PROJECT, as well as completely unique animations.

You can literally spin on your hands like a breakdancing star if you want!

The W now also has a very neat little gauge that shows when the enemy is in two stacks, which is completely unique.

But most important of all, you can ride a motorcycle.

Don’t lie to me about this. We are all children at heart, and seeing Vayne riding a Homeguard motorcycle makes us happy.
