Introduction

Hi there
I'm a Vlad-mainer. This is my first guide, so be gentle, thanks.


Guide Top

Pros / Cons

Vlad is honestly a bad champion. There, I said it. But if you know how to play him, you can easily dominate your lane opponent, if not the whole enemy team (with some help from your own, of course).
Vlad deals a lot of AOE damage in teamfights (W, E, and R). He is an incredible sustainer and trolls the sh*t out of the enemies with his pool.
However, he has a very hard time against most champions. He doesn't have any gap closers, and he is vulnerable when his Q+E is on cooldown.

Items

There is really no final build for him, it all depends on your opponents, and how good you're doing.


Guide Top

Skill Sequence

Q>W>E. NOT Q>E>W. When you've stacked your E four times, it deals enough damage and does therefore not need to be skilled until late. W in rank 5 with 40% CDR will have about 9-10 sec cooldown!


Guide Top

Spells

You don't have to go TP and Ghost, you can choose between Flash, Ignite, TP, and Ghost.


Guide Top

Why Vlad?

He is an overall fun champ to play, with some practice you can pull of some sick 1vX outplays.


Guide Top

Ranked Play

Just focus on playing extremely safe, don't feed, and communicate well with your team. Don't play risky, which can be tempting since you have your pool so often.

Farming

Vlad is an incredible farmer, in late-game you will see he probably has the most farm on the map. This is because he can just stand in the middle of a huge farmwave and press E.
