Vex is a hero of Vorbis and a participant in the Trials of Strife.


Vexus 331 has a past shrouded in mystery. It is believed he originated from the mysterious cybernetic plane called Vorbis. Little else is known about Vex except for his strength in combat and his cold, calculating mentality. Vex has one overriding directive: to seek and destroy; and it plays out gloriously and mercilessly on the field of battle.[1]


Vex is a versatile and mobile hero.[1]

When Playing AsEdit

Vex is a good hero to use for ganking. It may be smart to put Vex in the jungle so that his ganking potential can be at constant use. He can use his ultimate to launch into a lane and cause havoc. His shield and great abilities make him a threat wherever he goes.

When Playing AgainstEdit

If a player sees Vex channeling his ultimate, is is a good idea to get under a tower if he is going to land near said player. It is a good idea to bring multiple people to go against him as he has his shield to make damage from only one target very small. Look out for his ultimate and be careful of his shield and its a pretty basic fight from then on.
