Vladimir - How to Suck but not
Threats to Vladimir with this build
|Nasus||Just spam Q when he gets into distance, and zone him from stacking. Focus on farming and letting him NOT farm.|
Managing Health - While staying at low health is dangerous, Vladimir can heal more when he's low, and many players are surprised by his healing. Use this to turn fights quickly.
Spamming Q - Simple. Use your Q to zone when its Crimson Rush is full on the enemies but don't waste it and if they are not in reach than heal on the minions. ( Beware that minions only heal half and if you have any other unit to heal off of when you need it, use that instead)
Zoning with E - Freeze the lane but use E to clear the wave while hitting the enemy during lane at the same time. It does a lot of damage to them depending on your health.
Vladimir can bring teleport, or ghost as an alternative to gap close and apply pressure to other lanes. Depending on the match, try to copy the other team's strategy in order to stop it, considering Vladimir can play extremely offensive and defensive.
The items in this guide can definitely be rearranged in the order and between each build, however, focus on these until you find what item works best for you. Mainly focus on what defense to work on due to that Vladimir is constantly in front line and getting constantly hit.
