READ FIRST!

First of all, I'm german and don't speak english very good, please be nice.

I only created this guide to see how this guide thing works, that's one reason I don't show tips and tricks an so on, I made a guide about Vlad because I dont agree with the top ones that already exist about him. This is how I (!) play Vlad. I don't say this is perfect, I only think this is an option.

Skill Sequence

Transfusion is your bread and butter spell, this is what makes Vlad, stealing HP from the opponent and making it your own, thanks to it low cooldown, you can use it to harass and farm.

Sanguine Pool is a great escaping mechanism, take one point early and max it last.

Tides of Blood is a great farming spell since it deals a ton of AoE-Damage, make sure to stack it up if u think a fight results.

Hemoplague, the cool thing about this ability is not the damage itself but its passive, open up with you ult and spam your abilitys like hell, focused on the enemy Carry or Caster.

Mastery Trees

I like to go for a standard 21/9/0 choose 3 points in Hardiness or in Resistance depending on what lane u are going to go. (3 points in Hardiness and one in Resistance if u are going top, if you are going mid, the other way round.

Rune Build

Many peple like Movement Speed or Spell Vamp Quints, imo the Potency (AP) Quints are still the best choice for Vlad, the rest is standard.

Item Purchases

Starting Items

It depends on what lane you are going to play, if mid or top. Against a heavy AD like Riven, Doran's Shield also is an option. To dodge Skillshots like Nidalee's Javelin Toss, open up with Boots of Speed and 3 Health Potions. Another item many people like to start with is Regrowth Pendant, I personally don't like this, but it also works.

Core: Sorcerer's Shoes, Will of the Ancients, Rylai's Crystal Scepter I go for those items in almost every game.

Viable items: Void Staff, Guardian Angel, many people like to go GA, I dont think it is really necessary because you will end up very tanky thanks to your passive. Void Staff is also not necessary imo because u got Abyssal Scepter what will hurt a lot!

Of course go for Elixirs in certain situations, I think I don't need to explain which ones.
