How to Play Vex Support?
Overall, Vex lacks efficiency in the support position. His main poke spell, losing Mistral (A) is less effective on a longer lane such as botlane. In addition, Vex is a champion who wants to be ahead in terms of xp and gold and take advantage of this lead to easily eliminate the most fragile champions, which is more complicated in the support position because of the sharing of experience and lack of gold.Nevertheless, Vex can be useful on the botlane in certain situations especially against melee supports that engage such as Leona or Nautilus because she can counter them with her passive: Misfortune and Despair. Desperation allows him to counter assaults from his counterpart by interrupting his rushes and Poke Woe in order to demonstrate responsiveness.One of Vex’s greatest strengths is his ability to roam. Coupled with his losing Mistral passive (A) is an effective ranged engagement spell that will initiate surprising catches. Much like a Nocturne, Vex is a champion who instantly punishes misplacement and who initiates long-distance wrestling with his ultimate. But just like the Eternal Nightmare, Vex is very dependent on his R and inefficient when charging. When Shadow Surge (R) is on CD, Vex can still be useful by using Losing Mistral (A) to poke or catch a lone target that is trying to see, for example, or even hiding in the jungle. Let me go ! (Z) is the only survival tool in Vex’s kit. Therefore, it is imperative to have at least one defensive item such as Zhonya’s Hourglass or Banshee’s Veil when approaching teamfights, otherwise your survival time will not exceed five seconds.
