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, I'm Wahahasister and this is my guide to my fav champion Vladimir, The Crimson Reaper! He is extremely great mid champion, so everytime you pick him go mid! He has amazing sustainability and set of spells to dominate mid lane. Vladimir is very fun to play and he always annoys opponents who face him.
This is my first guide, so i'm trying to put down everything, make it simple and fun. I really hope you'll enjoy it, and please play it before you rate it!
Strengths and Weaknesses
+ Amazing sustainability on lane
+ High Damage
+ Good at farming
+ Great Initiator
- Hurts himself with Sanguine Pool
- Difficult to maintain balance between attacking and defensing
- Makes you think you can always regenerate HP
- Crippled by Ignite
Transfusion is a Vladimir's Q spell, that allows you to maintain on lane forever! It also has great damage and very low cooldown as you max it.
Sanguine Pool is W spell, which helps you to run, or chase. it also slows the target and deals damage, and has spell vamp regen as well. It's also good to use when other spells are on cooldown.
Tides of Blood is E spell, that is great for farming, and with its stacking ability, has huge damage, as well as low cooldown.
Hemoplague is Vladimir's ultimate (R), which has good damage after time, which is good for killing champions like Tryndamere. But best part of it is that affected enemies take increased damage for the duration. And it has area effect, so you can affect more than one hoe.
So when you have your Ultimate ready, you initiate with it, than spam Q and E, and during spamming those two use W to escape or slow them down and deal more damage.
I usually go with Flash and Ignite, flash is good for ganks and escapes as well, while ignited enemy which is also affected by Hemoplague won't ever escape. But there are two more spells which I like on The Crimson Reaper as well.
Ghost is good as well for chasing and escaping, though you may still have lower movement speed than other champions.
Heal it gives you sustainability, and again, you're not gonna leave mid lane EVER!
Greater Mark of Magic Penetration we all know what's it for
greater seal of vitality because Vladimir's Passive skill Crimson Pact gives you ability power per bonus health and also gives you health for every bonus ability power point.
Greater Glyph of Scaling Ability Power for ap boost
Greater Quintessence of Spell Vamp for increased spell vamp. more spell vamp you'll have more HP will you recover with Transfusion, which will give you more sustainability on lane.
So I hope the guide was useful, there nothing else i can think of right now, so leave your comments and questions and I'll respond to them, and give you all additional info i know myself. And with your help I'll update this guide everytime you ask something that I miss : )
thank you for reading. Enjoy playing with Vladimir
