Utility: 21


This build assumes you are very familiar with Vlad. It gives lots of early utility because of Rylais, and rushing guardian angel, even if you have a slower start and die a few times, will result in more stacks being held on Mejais.

PS, the stats are wrong, you usually end up with around 4.1k HP and about 650 AP with full stacks, Around 700 with baron.

Abyssal can be subbed for Void if enemy team is stacking MR.

Early Game L1-9
-this build almost entirely assumes you get mid to be effective.
-Early game harass mid with Q and farm farm farm. Use some zone control to deny squishy opponents gold, and be passive against champs like Mordekaiser and Morgana
-At level 6/7, harass most squishies with Ult+ignite+Q+E+W(if needed), so they are forced to go back, or if you can finish them, do so. This allows you to farm freely and get a few turret hits in, gaining a huge 1-2 level advantage.
-From here until 13, don't be afraid to use your ult everytime its up to rack up a single kill
-do NOT waste pool use it only when required to get away or dodge a deadly attack.

Mid Game L9-13
-At this stage in the game, gank only when needed, try to keep farming up, and don't forget to call MIAs.
-The goal is to farm until level 13, where pool is at max level and you can gank really well. Secondary goal is to get mid turret, while the mid is ganking or at base.
-The goal at this stage is to have guardian, from farming and hopefully a few kills.

Late Game/Team phase L 14-18
-Level 13 is where Vlad starts to shine, his pool is on an ultra low cooldown, try to gank with Blue Golem buff, and you should be able to rack up major stacks on Mejais.
-At this stage, do not waste your ulti on getting 1 kill, unless you can manage to hit a runner and at least 2 other enemies.
-Just poke the hell out of them, you should be really fed at this point, and unstoppable.

-When you have 20 stacks and are confident in keeping them, you can sell guardian angel for another AP item, or other defensive item
-Dont waste money on Elixers until you have your full build. Guardians purpose is just to build stacks on Mejais, until you are fed enough to keep them yourself.

-PLEASE dont just try this guide once, fail, and downvote it. I am not the best Vlad, but my score is always positive, and 80% of games I play with decent teams, I usually carry. I went 25-2-12 in a ranked game, with 2 quadra kills, 9-1-2, 14-2-6, etc..

REMEMBER, you are NOT a tank, your goal is to make the real tank get focused, and while they are surrounding him, use your Ulti, and they should mostly be affected, while you nuke them from a far, and pool when necessary
