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.
What's up everyone. This is my first build so it may suck but I have found that it works for me. This build is mainly for midding Vlads because of Vlads Crimsion Pact ability. Because of the Crimsion Pact ability you get a **** load of health and can dish out a whole bunch of damage. I have found that at lvl 14 I have been able to kill fed level 18's and coming out at half health. It is good to get your transfusion to lvl 5 AS SOON AS POSSIBLE because that is your most effective ability. With this AP build you will be able to take on two, maybe three (if you know how to play your cards right) or push against the whole team until the rest of your team gets to you.
I chose Ignite and Ghost because with ignite if an enemy champ is faster than you early game and they are almost dead pop you can pop ignite on them which will most likely kill them so you can get more kills early game. As for ghost I chose that spell so you can make quick ganks or run away from enemies (if needed, I recommend using sanguine pool to run away from enemies).
Amplifiying tome and health pot are the first two items you should get so if you can get extra health from the beginning and so if you are losing a lot of health you can heal without going to the summoner's pool. As soon as you get 350g go and get yourself some boots so you have a better chance of chasing down enemies or running away from them. After getting those three items purchase Rylai's Crystal Scepter. This is beneficial to Vlad because it gives both health and ap and with Crimson Pact you get even more of both. After purchasing Rylai's Crystal Scepter start working on getting Lich Bane. You should get Lich Bane because of the AP and movement speed increase. After that get Sorcer's Shoes. You should get Mercury Treads if you are facing a stun team but if not get Sorcer's Shoes for even more damage and to chase down your enemies. Once you have your shoes get Mejai's Soulstealer. This is good for Vlad because of its stacking ability. Because you will be a killing machine it shouldn't be hard to get stacks fast. The more stacks you have the more health you have. After the Soulstealer focus on getting Zhyona's ring this will get you AP out of your ear. . After that you should get Will of the Ancients so you get more AP and spell vamp.
This build is meant for you to have a lot of health and AP so you can do some amazing damage. This is my first build and I have found that this works best for me so i suggest you give it a try. Since this is my first build I would love feedback.
