Guide

Abilites

Transfusion: Vladimir drains the lifeforce of his target, dealing magic damage and healing himself for 25% of that amount.

This skill is what makes Vlad a Vlad. Perfect for harrasing and healing small damages the enemy hero has afflicted u with and against a physical hero this attack is a beast as they have hard time striking a strike back unless they have stun like Sion or slow like Nunu.

Sanguine Pool: Vladimir sinks into a pool of blood for 2.5 seconds, becoming untargetable and slowing enemies above him. Vladmir deals magic damage to targets above him and heals himself for 15% of that amount.

Many a player have deemed this 'ZOMG TOO OP', but i disagree. its only 2.5 second duration and once you come out, thats basically the only thing keeping you from being beaten into a pulp, so use it wisely. dont use it to take out a creep wave when you think an ambush could be near, it could very well save your life.

Tides of Blood: Vladimir unleashes a torrent of blood, damaging surrounding enemies. Additionally, multiple Tides of Blood in a short period of time cause them to cost additional health and deal additional damage, and increases his healing and regeneration by 8%.

Excellent farming method in combination with transfusion and even more tides considering the increased damage and regen. if you get this baby up to 2 or 3 stacks before going into a fight you can get some serious damage output.

(Ultimate) Hemoplague: Vladimir infects the target area with a virulent plague that increases the damage they take for 5 seconds. After 5 seconds, infected enemies take magic damage.

Important to remember

Use Ulti only when the enemy team is gathered to one lump or when one, two or more are 1/4 hp left.

(Passive) Crimson Pact: Bonus health gives Vladimir bonus ability power, and every bonus ability power gives Vladimir bonus health (does not stack with itself).

Om Nom.


Masteries

I like to go with 9/0/21 because Vlad is really dependant of movement speed and COOLDOWNS.

The 9 to Attack is for some bonuses to AP and Magic Pen.
The 21 to Utility is for Cooldown reduction, HP regen, Fast Spawning and Movement speed.


Runes

Magic Pen Marks to buff your spells up.
Fortitude Seals and Quintessences for health.
Glyphs for AP

Thats it! A handful of easy to find runes you probably already have sitting around.
