Key Insights

    's cooldown.
  • Triggering
    Vex
    P
    knocks down the affected enemy.
  • Vex
    E
    increases in size the farther it travels.
  • If

    R
    's target dies within 6 seconds of being marked by it, Vex can cast
    Vex
    R
    again for free for the next 12 seconds.
  • Vex
    R
    grants vision of where it travels and grants true sight of its target.

    /
    Vex
    W

    Vex
    P
    's cooldown by consuming marks on dashing and blinking enemies as well as landing
    Vex

  • Excels at bursting enemies, interrupting engages, and has the potential to "pop off" in teamfights with
    Vex
    R

Weaknesses
