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.
Hello, this is how i like to play my Vlad. I originally built this build off of SmartxAxBSH's "Vladamir - The Bloodied Impaler(AP Nuke Build)" build. I have decided to post this build because it differs from SmartxAxBSH's build that i felt it was it deserved its own page.
Ok now to get down to business you are and always will be a mage. So your squishier then most characters but you deal massive damage through your spells.
Just a quick FYI this is my first build i haven't ever used BBcode, that will all show so please be kind about how it looks, if you have problems with the build let me know. comments are always useful.
So for runes i took magic penetration Marks and Quintessences
Straight CD reduction glyphs and AP seals.
Yes i know that Glyphs have more AP then Seals, but in using the better CD reduction you can get your spells off faster and heal quicker.
- Hmm well if you play it safe you should be able to use your transfusion to heal
Ok so what i have and what might be useful if you want to use it.
Ignite: Best possible summoner's skill for Vlad. Stacks perfectly with Hemoplague and in combination with the rest of your abilities should help you snag some easy kills early in the game.
Ghost: Use it before popping your Sanguine Pool to make speedy escapes from enemies without being touched or to snag those silly champs recalling beside their turret and make a smooth getaway. Either way its a great defensive or offensive move for Vlad.
Flash: A chosen favorite of most, Can let you make nifty getaways into the jungle or to pop in for a nice finishing blow on an escaping champ.
Teleport: I will sometimes personally use Teleport just for the quick back into lanes in case i got really low in a huge battle or to recall back to base for some items. I still stand by Ghost and prefer it EVERYTIME to anything else.
Okay if you need more of a description you can go and actually learn how to play an awesome vlad off of SmartxAxBSH's build.
With the amount of AP i have Deathfire grasp is to invaluable to not get. With it i can fire off the item shot and do half health to any non magic resist champions. plus combined with the void staff and other magic penetration i can do half health to most magic resist champions as well. Zhonyas is a common caster item, as well as Mejais.
i generally rush mejais after the first kill i pick up at mid, i then help gank bot and top and if i can get a teammate to hit mid with me i generally pick up about 3-4 kills before lvl 11. i then get sorc boots for speed and Kage's lucky pick. i then move up to hex-tech revolver and upgrade that to Will of the Ancients. Then we move Kage's Lucky pick to Death Fire Grasp and buy the void staff. i have had awesome numbers using this. works pretty well against most.
