Introduction

Hello! This is a build suited for mid lane play with Vladimir, the Crimson Reaper.


Guide Top

Runes

Mag. pen. marks are a necessity with almost any mid lane AP champion. Scaling Health not only gives Vladimir extra sustain, but it also gives him a boost in AP because of his passive, proving them to be more useful than armor seals. Ability Power glyphs do the same thing the seals do, but better. AP quints follows the theme of feeding off of Vlad's passive.

Masteries

I like to go 21/9/0 for maxed out AP in the Offense tree and more health in the Defense tree.


Guide Top

Items

The items are, like usual, feed off of Vladimir's passive. More health grants more AP, and vice-versa.

Skill Sequence

I like to max out his Q for the most damage and best sustain. I level up my E next to clear minion waves more easily. I level up his Ultimate ASAP, like you would with almost any champion. Finally, I sit at a tier 1 W for a while, because I mainly use it for escaping rather than damage. Late game I will use it for damage if necessary.


Guide Top

Spells

I go with the meta flash and ignite, allowing easy kills, or an easy getaway.

Pros / Cons

Pros: Sustain
High damage

Cons: No armor/magic resistance
Can be sluggish


Guide Top

Farming

With this setup, farming is EXTREMELY easy. Just spam your E when near creeps and Q to gain health back. Sometimes, it's good to W to clear a large wave of low-health minions.

Summary

This setup is very fun and useful. Vladimir is a champion that is like no other, which freshens up the game. I recommend you give him a try. Never be afraid to experiment. Every summoner has a unique playstyle. Make sure it fits yours, but is still good. Thank you for viewing my guide! Be sure to give it a thumbs up if it helped! Happy ganking, summoners!
