Hi welcome to my 1st guide, I have been trying and testing a new VLA build and it works, from trial n error.
items after the soc shoes are situational pick one of the two inbetween the sight wards to be more tank or ap based
The trail of bodies led him to a crumbling stone temple. Inside he found an aging monk who appraised him with eyes of pure crimson. Vladimir surprised the monk by returning the wicked gaze with zeal.
Vladimir is Vladimir i didnt want to play him any other way but head on with a GAZE WITH ZEAL
The whys of this build
*ncreased movment speed is a must cuz u gotta be UP FRONT and it increses the effective ness of snaring more with your sanguine pool
*at stand still u can target transfusion n run as soon as its casted but beware of long range snarers or front line snarers
*faster map travel for gank or multi lane push to buy time for your team, the trick is to get in and get out realy realy fast.
Sanguine Pool max why?
*Back regen sanguine, recombo
*Great snare, 1 button, runs under creeps large area -50% move speed at rank1 which is more then Frost Shot 35% at rank 4
CD REDUCES PER LVL u knew that Vladmir deals 80/135/190/245/300 (+ (15% of bonus Health)) magic damage over the duration and heals himself for 12.5% of that amount.
So the more hp u have the less sanguine pool hurts u and the more it hurts others + its an aoe snare/farming tool.
Spirit Visage why?
UNIQUE Passive: Reduces ability cooldowns by 12% and increases healing and regeneration by 20%.1.2k only
Start of game
try to get mid concentrate on farming for spirt visage for cd red and better healing and better farming by lvl 5 if ur not in mortal danger u can farm with sang pool or u can quickly duck in forest and sang the wraiths or wolfs.
by the time u get ur boots u can go hunting hemo transfusion sanguin pool with allys the target should be slowed n killed in ur pool of blood.
On the offensive
Transfusion pool trans pool pool = lvl5
Try not to harras with sanguine pool untill lvl 5 work better if you have spirt visage already too.
Transfusion them when u have a chance and pool dive if they are in reach and get out befor your pool of blood finishes which will prob score you some minion kills while your at it or lower their hp to be last hit.
Transfusion is a flat heal so if u need a heal u can still last hit.
This is the reason i wanted to play vladimir, so being a happy farmer has gotten ur opponet on low since u can farm/harras with sanguine && transfusion u most likly be at their tower, where they cant run, try to get you minions in to tank the tower and run up close to the enemy champion blast him hemo,Deathfiregrasp transfusion Tides Of Blood n sanguine pool, and when u come out of your sanguine the tower is still atacking your minions(BUGGED DOSNT WORK ONCE IN A BLUE MOON) happy hunting
You have be fast.
Not using the "A" button makes less mistakes.
I usuly run in nuke hard run out half way during sanguine pool(unless they are runing away) and tides of blood while im runing out, tranfusion from max range wait 4 sanguine cd and repeat.
during late game u have alot of hp and dps but they will be trying to squish u 1st so stay with in groups reach
during team battle i generaly try to focus snare individuals who isnt a tank unless tank is alone which in turn will also aoe +snare their team,
snareing (Great snare, 1 button, runs under creeps large area) some1 squishy, or if one runs in too early, and pool should regen to snare one left behind or snare to let ur team run n flash out
