Threats to Vladimir with this build
|Lux||She won't do much damage to you once you get Spirit Visage. Avoid her Light Binding though else her teammates will dive onto you.|
|Teemo||His blind won't help. Take him as a cs.|
|Sona||She is a walking 50 to 500g. Take her down immediately and easily.|
|Janna||You can kill her easily once you get Rylai.|
***Don't buy pots even at level 1 your Q is like a pots. Save your 200g and get items fast.
***Don't use E often- this skill will drain high amount of your hp.
***Proper use of E skill:
-Resort for last hitting minion/s if Q is on cooldown and AA won't be able to catch up.
-Use full charge E if you and your farm plan to slow and take down opponent.
-Do not use E full charge while in clash, you only need the slow debuff from Rylai's Scepter
-Use full charge E in chasing one or two opponent in order for your teammates to catch up and take down the opponent especially tanks.
-Do not use E immediately after Q. Wait at least half Q's cooldown or more before using E for consistent Rylai's slow debuff.
***Sustain tips/Tower Hugging(TH) early game:
-If your hp is low during TH try to find available farm monsters like mini golem and Q spam it. Ward the opponent's frog farm spot after TD and Q spam frog behind wall. You don't have have to kill those and want only to gain hp back.
-AA and skill lane minions only if they are dying not when they are healthy. Exception: if low on hp and doing TH, Q spam minions even if their hp is full.
-Take lane minion damage to save your tower's life.
-If you have Crimson Rush buff from your Q try to at least Q opponent.
-TP bot with wards in bushes at level 6 or higher and try to take down low hp opponents(dying only) at bot lane with - Full charge E + Flash + Release E + R + Q + W(escape from tower).
***Going beyond your spot (Mid game to Late game):
-Finish your Spirit Visage before trying to TD(Tower Down)and push.
-You can already enjoy killing once you get Luden's Echo and/or Frost Queen's Claim
-Don't forget to use your Frost Queen's Claim active ability.
-Don't forget to use your Hextech Gunblade's active ability.
-Use TP on your ally minion (ally minion that the tower is hitting) to TD low hp tower/s.
-Use your mastery "Explorer" when enemies are trying to chase you at low hp-run on bushes and river. Marathon dude!
