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.
Welcome 2 my first Guide
The reason i made a Vladimir guide is beacause i think people need to see another kind of guides with Vladimir.
think the other vladimir guide´s remind to much of each other.
and pls say if anything is good or bad about this guide.
Pros And Cons
Great minion Farmer
Good aoe damage
Really good teamfight uilti
Can heal himself up quick
Can escape ganks with Sanguine Pool
He dosent use Mana
Can be harreses pretty hard by long ranged champions
Sanquine Pool cost much health to cast
If Sanguine Pool not used Correctly you can kill yourself
Hes basic has an slow animation and dosent do much damage so you maybe necessary to use your E or Q to last hit
Even tho Vladimir has some cons he is one of the best champion.
after hes nerf people think he is to bad but he isnt he is still one of the best mid or solo top champions in the game
Greater Mark of Magic Penetration
Greater Seal of Armor
Greater Glyph of Magic Resist
Greater Quintessence of Ability Power
* Greater Mark of Magic Penetration I take them as mark beacause it gives extra damge by lowering their magic resist.
I think you will not find any ap mid champion where it isnt used
* Greater Seal of Armor You maybe ask why thease and i use them beacause i think if you solo top agianst a AD then it will help you. Or you can take Health per level if you find that better
* Greater Glyph of Magic Resist i take that flat magic resist beacause it reduce Ap casters Damage and beacause i really like that extra sustain. if you dont need extra sustain you should take Greater Glyph of Scaling Ability Power
* Greater Quintessence of Ability Power i always like 2 start out with a flat amount of ap. Thats why this quints
I take these Masteries Beacause there is no reason to take extra Ap in Offense or extra Health in Defends.
But the things in utility like spell vamp reducing time spend dead and CDR is really good as Vladimir.
I take ghost as summoner spell beacuase i think the extra movement speed is good. If you use it then Sanguine Pool you can escape ganks and also good to secure kills.
Its really good to secure kills. Nearly all Ap caster use it so i strongly recommend it
People nearly always chose between Flash or Ghost. its also good 2 secure kills but isnt so good with Sanguine Pool. Beacause Sanquine pool slience you
Heal: i only recommend Heal if you solo top and if your ad carry dont have it or then take Ignite
I start out with Boots of Speed and 3 health pots beacause that extra movemnet speed is good to escape ganks and harras people that dont have boots
My secound item is Will of the Ancients i take Hextech Revolver before Blasting Wand beacause spell vamp tha best on Vladimir
My Third and Fourth items is Giant belt and Sorcerer's Shoes. Giant belt beacause of extra health and Sorcerer's Shoes for extra magic penetration
My fifth item is Rabadon's Deathcap or Zhonya's Hourglass i take Zhonya's Hourglass if they are 4 ad or then i take it after Rabadon's Deathcap
Last items is Rylai's Crystal Scepter and Void Staff. i take Rylai's Crystal Scepter because it gives Health ap and a passive slow and i take Void Staff beacause its reduces their magic resist.
I hope this guide help you a bit with playing Vladimir. Im sorry i have no pictures its my first guide but i might add later.
This was my way of playing Vladimir hope you enjoyed it and leave a comment below of what i can do better or if anything was good. And im also sorry it is such an short guide but my guide shall most forcus on the items runes masteries than pictures and skill expalining.
