Intro

This ISN'T an in depth guide. I will tell you how to play as Vladimir with the build fairly quickly. I made this to help spark some ideas in your head, NOT for you to copy the whole guide but do as you wish. Originallity helps you become better.

Runes

I chose mostly AP runes for the damage but if you want to use the AP per level runes u can or the flat ap runes if u want a strong early game. I chose the flat health runes for the early game max use of abilities since all but Transfusion use Health. They are substitutable for anything else you think may work.

Masteries

For masteries I myself found it strange to use offense and defense masteries and NO utility. I use the offense tree to help spam abilities, BUT have some actually significant damage. For defense you ca use whatever you want for the first 4 points, but always use the health masteries. You may be wondering why I chose not to improve the summoner spells. I did that because I do prefectly fine without the improved version, but it is ultimately your choice what to do with you masteries.

Items

For the early game your goals ar the Sorceror's Shoes and the Will of the ancients. early game you will not use as much HP so you can easily get by with just spell vamp. Also if your team needs a tank you can be that tank since you have a boatload of HP, armor, and magic resist. Back to spell vamp, it will make transfusion an over powered spell since you regeneraate a boat load of hp

Skill Sequence

Vladimir you may not think of as an AOE mage but he is. Transfusion is the only non AOE spell he has. I max Trans fusion first because all of Vladimir's other spells cost a portion of his HP. Transfusion not only damages but it heals which is a pain to someone who just spent a while lowering your HP. Now to Vladimir's first AOE is Sanguine Pool. I max it last because he honestly doesn't need but i take it at level three for escapes and to slow the enemy. It does heal for a portion of the damage dealt though. Vladimir's second AOE is tides of blood. You may think it isn't an AOE but the area is around him. the way it works is he fires it and it hits all enemies that are within the AOE. The last AOE is Hemoplague. this is how vladimir can still get kills after death. When activated you get an AOE launcher and place it where the most enemies are. when they get hit they don't get damaged immediately. in that brief period you may die, but you can still get a kill or two. If you live because of spell vamp you will regenerate a boat load of HP.

Summary

That is all. I thank Phreak from Riot games (the guy who does the champion spotlights)for showing me Vladimir's tanky possibility and all of the other people that built him with the Warmog's armor!!!!!
