Not Updated For Current Season
The masteries shown here are not yet updated for the current season, the guide author needs to set up the new masteries. As such, they will be different than the masteries you see in-game.
Hey there and welcome to my first guide for :
Vladimir , The Crimson Reaper
First words about Vlad:
Well Vlad is in my opinion one of the best Champs ingame! Why? Mh lets see:
[*] Very tanky in lategame
[*] Nice damage output
[*] Great CC
[*] He has an epic escape abillity
[*] Looks just epic
[*] Fights with Blood
[*] And hate's Twilight
[*] Kinda squishy early on
[*] Not really dangerous early on
[*] He may fail in a 1v1 ( depends on playstyle and opponent)
[*] He would kill your mother
For 6th Item chooseif your enemy team has more physical dmg!
Orif your enemy team has more magical dmg!
"Hey Viper , you suck ! Why would you ever buy Spirit Visage? NOOB!"
Well ... guy i dont know , this item just ROCKZ for Vlad! It may look ****py but it just a musthave for Vlad . I know most Vlad players just ignore this item , but this think will make you even more badass . You will heal with Transfusion 150-260 , every 3 seconds!
Early on this item will help you to survive battles/ganges or just to recover your life in a short time. Later on it wont be that effective and you can sell it for a "Force of Nature" or "Warmongs" , BUT only if got all of your 6 items , because it will help you alot to recover after a big clash , your AP will be high and you will heal a decent amount after a use of Transfusion. Overall a great choice for him ( AND ITS CHEAP!!)
This is the hardest part for Vladimir , he is kinda squishy and Transfusion has a high CD(->low damage output).
YOU WANT MID , you really want mid , thats what a Vlad player needs: Gold,fast xp gain to get Transfusion up and most of the time a squishy as enemy.
Try to stay back , last hit and maybe harrass your enemy with Transfusion ( Dont be cocky !) until you are lvl 6/7 ( Thats where you have your ultra Ulti and Transfusion with pretty low CD).Try to get some kills in mid and buy a mejais , just use Ult-Ignite-Transfusion-Tides of Blood-Pool-Transfusion-Tides of Blood . This will kill your enemy for sure!
Now you should start ganging ! Just stay in a bush at top/bot , wait for a enemy and than go in with the same combo -> Ult-Ignite-Transfusion-Tides of Blood-Pool-Transfusion-Tides of Blood . Make sure to have your 2 mates around , for extra damage ( even more damage because of your Ult).
Try to get your Rylais up and let the Late Game come!!
Thats the part where Vlad gets important , he can decide between Win or Loss.Always stay with your team and harrass your opponents with Transfuison-Tides of Blood ;
IF your tank initiates's , rush in and throw our Ulti on as much carry's as possible , if they focus you go in Pool and let your team crush them , heal up and finish with Transfusion.
IF the enemy tank initiates , stay back and dont focus the tank , try again to catch up the carry's and squishys with our Ulti and destroy them!
YOU can also initiate after some practice and good timing : Use ghost , rush in , use Ult on as much enemys as possible (now your team should also move ahead), pop your Zhonyas go instantly in your Pool if you still get focused and finish of the carry's and squishy's , dont be mad if you die , most of the time your team win's the clash than.
Pls tell me if you want more informations about Vladimir , i would post it as fast as i can! Thx :*
