Introduction

Hey guys and girls of LoL, my name is Iamthearbiter and I'm here to run you through my guide for Vladimir. Now I must warn you this is my very first guide I have no experience what so ever so any problems you find just list them in the comments below.

Now without further ado lets get started.


Guide Top

Runes

So we'll start off with the runes.

For Marks you wanna get 'Greater Marks of Insight'
For Seals you wanna get 'Greater Seals of Vitality'
For Glyphs you wanna get 'Great Glyphs of Potency'
(Just a heads up you wanna get Potency not Force it just wouldn't let me choose those Glyphs)
And finally
For Quintessences you wanna get 'Greater Quints. of Potency'

Masteries

For the Masteries I have gone 0/9/21 the reason I chose to go into Utility as my main spec. is because if you dodge all of the mana skills in the tree you can get a pretty good Vlad build with it.

Then we move onto the secondary tree and why I didn't go into Offence at all.

The reason you go into Defence for the last 9 points you have is because, well you get some health out of it, and the reason I didn't build into Offence at all is because I played Vlad with an Offence build and he didn't really last that long I would get some good hits but they weren't the hits I was looking for, not to mention the cool-downs I had on my Sanguine Pool I couldn't really get away in some ganks when I was mid or even top.

Items

Now for items...

You wanna start yourself off with an Amplifying Tomb and two health potions (because if you didn't know Vlad has no mana), then you wanna upgrade that ****py old tomb for a Hextech Revolver then grab your Sorcerer's Shoes, move onto your Rylai's Crystal Scepter, then its really up to you for the next item, if your getting owned by AD that auto attack get a Thornmail, if you getting owned by AP get a Force of Nature and if you are just looking for a bit of both grab a Guardian Angle for the sustain, then you wanna get your Rabadon's Deathcap, Abyssal Scepter and finish it off by building your Will of the Ancients.


Guide Top

Summoner Spells

For you Summoner Spells, I've had the most success with Flash and Ignite but other viable options would be:

Ghost and Flash
Ghost and Ignite
Flash and Heal
Teleport and Flash

And that sums up the Summoner Spells chapter.

Skill Sequence

For your Skill Sequence its pretty simple nothing too hard or complex.

Q,W,E,Q,Q,R,Q,W,Q,W,R,W,W,E,E,R,E,E

Or and even simpler form,

You start off with Transfusion, moving on to you Sanguine Pool, then you Tides Of Blood, get your Transfusion two more times before getting you Hemoplauge, you then go Tranfusion -- Sanguine Pool -- Tranfusion you are now down with your Q, to continue follow up your Sanguine Pool once more before getting your Hemoplauge another rank up, then finish off your Sanguine Pool two more times, your now down with W, you finish off with your Tides Of Blood last because it is your least effective move get it two times before finishing off your Hemoplauge then for the last two levels grab Tides Of Blood.

And that is the Skill Sequence.
