Why Vladimir-Mid?

Even before the re-work, Vladimir had the kit for mid lane. His Q for harass/sustain, W for escape, and E for poke. His stats are very much like other mid-laners


Guide Top

Ability Sequence

Normal trade- Q+E OR E+Q
Dueling- R+Q+E+Ignite OR E-charge+R+Q+Ignite (If its a secure kill, you can add W pool)
Teamfight- R+E+Q+W+Q+E


Guide Top

Vladimir's Point To Top Lane

---Get these to increase early trade damage

---Flat penetration will increase power against the other mid-laner

---For sustain and your passive

---Same reason of getting the glyphs, increase trade damage


Guide Top

Itemization

---Your health and AP will boost up because of your passive and you will see the difference on the scale of your abilities.

---You can chase the enemies without them being able to run quickly.

---The range of your abilities are about the same as the item itself. Synergies with your E.

---This will melt through anyone who gets magic resist.


Guide Top

Synergies

---9/10 If Mega-Gnar can catch any of them, your abilities will destroy them
---9/10 Same as Gnar, Yasuo's tornado/ult can give you enough time to wreak havoc and his wind wall will sustain you from damage
---8-10 Alistar can keep them up at the air and tank damage while you can destroy them
---7-10 Trundle's field and pillar skill is a domination where your enemies are slowed for you to kill them
---7-10 Shaco's ganks are amazing with Vladimir, his Jack in The Box can stall enough time for you to do a whole combo on them
