Differences from The Bloodied Impaler(AP Nuke Build)


This build is mainly a modification of SmartxAxBSH's Vladimir build, kudos to him.


1. Health Potion omitted.


I feel like a health pot is more or less unnecessary, as this would be mostly useful early game, when you will be harassing anyway and gaining HP.
One can of course purchase a pot if this is preferred.


2. Replaced shoes


Mercury's Treads as a replacement for Sorcerers Boots. Personally I felt like a reduction in, pretty much everything that kills you would be nice. Alternatively one can purchase Sorcerers and then sell for Mercury's late game.


3. Added two 6th items:


  • Leviathan, cheap, and the stackable effect provides even more AP and HP. Sick if you can get a few kills.

  • Rylai's Crystal Scepter, the slow works well and it provides good AP. For long and/or fed games. More AP and whatnot.


4. Rune changes


I replaced a Greater Mark of Insight with a Greater Mark of Potency, for a little more AP, especially useful early game.


Suggestions for alternative 6th items:


  • Hextech Gunblade, a very cheap option. This can be replaced even later for one of the other sixth items. The unique active is what makes it interesting, as it deals an instant 300 magic damage and slows the target by 50%. This is very good in a team fight, or versus a running fiend. Especially good if used in conjunction with Vlads ultimate.

  • Guinsoo's Rageblade, offers an AP and attack speed boosting ability that stacks up to 6 times, meaning 48 extra AP. For a total of 93 AP from this item.
