Laning and Items

Laning



Once the game starts i head to mid and grab aI would have a good amount of health . if u cant go mid i recomend u going with a guy who can do much burst damage while ur in ur pool such as Rumble. If u can get to mid once ur at mid wat u need to do is harras the enemy withand use it to gain ur health try to last hit minions once u hit lvl 4 u can do a rotation which can harras the enemy realy good it looks a bit like this :
>
>Thats it u got ur enemies health quite lowwer so thts it just keep farming and once u get 1600G get back and buy boots and revolver after tht start ganking and kicking ***

Items



Dorans Ring: I get it because of how much health it gives and the ap quite good starting item for vlad but barely anyone starts with it.

Hextech Revolver: Ahh best item for vlad in my opinion it gives spell vamp and AP wat more can u ask for !? very good item in my opinion.

Spirit Visage: Another great item in my opinion gives u 10% extra healings recieved with magic resist and CD reduction how awesome .

Rylias crystal scepter: Well now is the kind of the time were u need some ap and health thts were u go for rylias crystal scepter gives u great amount of health and AP

Rabadons Deathcap: Now this is seriously a deadly item gives u tons and tons of ap love it so much xD.

Will of the ancients: it was about time we finish our Hextech revolver u get this gives u extra ap to u and ur team mates and did i mention it gives spell vamp

Viod staff: Now For the Last and one of the most awesome items gives u ap and lets u cut through there Maguc resist.

Boots



Now there is about 4 boots u can take as vlad u can get Boots of lucidity i prefer it over other boots cuz it gives CDR which can just let u spam ur Q ability

4 boots u can take :

Boots of lucidity : Gives u CDR take it ussualy to harras
Sorcerer's Shoes : If they got more than 1 tank on there team get this
Ninja tabi : If they have alot of DPS such as YI and corki
Mercury treads : If they have alot of AP champs

Rotation & skills

My rotation aint special its actualy normal here it goes read of the skills then check out the rotation .

Crimson pact { Passive }: Every 40 points of bonus health gives Vladimir 1 ability power and every 1 point of ability power gives Vladimir 1.8 bonus health (does not stack with itself).

Transfusion: Vladimir drains the lifeforce of his target, dealing 70 / 115 / 160 / 205 / 250 (+60% of ability power) magic damage and healing himself for 17.5 / 28.75 / 40 / 51.25 / 62.5 (+25% of ability power).

Sanguine pool: Vladimir sinks into a pool of blood for 2 seconds, becoming untargetable and slowing enemies above him by 40% for 1 second.

Vladmir deals 80 / 135 / 190 / 245 / 300 (+15% of his bonus Health) magic damage over the duration and heals himself for 12.5% of that amount.

Tides of blood: Vladimir unleashes a torrent of blood dealing 60 / 90 / 120 / 150 / 180 (+45% of ability power) magic damage to nearby enemies.

Each cast gives him an Empowered stack (max 4), increasing his healing and regeneration by 8% each. Additionally, his next Tides of Blood deals 25% more damage and costs 50% more Health per stack.

Hemoplague {Ultimate}:Vladimir infects the target area with a virulent plague. Affected enemies take 14% increased damage for 5 seconds.


Rotation



I would like to start off with a transfusion hit my pool get of my pool use transfusion again and spam ur tides of blood but this is how its gonna look like without ur ult :

SpamEverytime its up.

Now with ur ult is the exact same thing put ur ult in the beggining :

SpamEverytime its up.

Summoner Spells

Prefered spells :

Ignite provides the necessary tool to prevent healing and regeneration when trying to focus down a carry. It also provides that last bit of damage you need to score a First Blood!

Ghost provides great mobility, and great tools for escaping and or chasing down enemies. It also provides the ability to catch up to team mates as they might be entering into combat. Another thing i love about ghost is tht u can use it with sanguine pool and slow ur enemies.

Pros / Cons

PROs
-Speaking of Karthus, you can dodge his Requiem with Sanguine Pool, among other skills. This includes the explosion at the end of Vlad's, too.
-No need to worry about mana, and not too much worry about health.
-Low cooldowns.
-Looks pretty freaking sweet.
-Has some decent damage output, and is quite tanky.

CONS

- Really slow
- difficult to master.

Team Work

Once the team fighting starts, you will want to change your rotation and how to approach the fight only slightly.

You still want your basic rotation to be the same, but make sure if you go in first to use, you will want to haveup to get out safe so you are not the one farthest into the other teams range. Ideally you will want to follow close behind your tank so you don't have to be quite as worried. Typically, your teams will hit the person closest to them, and even though Vlad is more sturdy, you still don't want to be in there getting stun locked down because you didn't get out far enough. Once you do get a little safer distance from the enemy team, you can turn back and pick off people withand. Just don't run really far away from the fight unless it is over. I can't tell you how many times there have been 2-3 really weak champions and the last person ran way to far away to catch them in time or even ported back to heal when they could have got a double or triple kill. Just remember to not use Tides too much or you just might kill yourself or at least make you so low you will be a big target.

Tips & Tricks ( By SmartxAxBSH )

Just a brief list of tips and tricks that you should use while playing Vladimir.

1. You can use Sanguine Pool to Permanently drop aggro from turrets EVEN AFTER damaging enemy champions, AS long as their is another target for the turret to fire upon. Ex: A friendly minion, pet, or even another champion.

2. Your Ultimate(Hemoplague) has an excellent reach, See someone recalling too close to their turret but are low health? You can cast your ult on them from outside the turret's range as long as you hit them with just the outside edge of the spell.

3. Level 13+ Don't be afraid to turret dive, Run in and smack the enemy with a Transfusion or your Ultimate and then use Sanguine Pool for an easy escape. By level 13+ your Sanguine Pool cooldown should be low enough so that it will be up the next time you need it.

4. Never initiate with your Sanguine Pool, Save it for extra damage after your ultimate(Level 13+ So the cooldown is shorter) or during iffy battles to help with your retreat.

5. Gank! Vladamir is an excellent ganker. If you are playing center, watch the top and bottom lanes constantly and work with your teammates to set up traps for the enemy champions who push a little too far into your territory. Try to get behind them and use your Sanguine Pool (If it is safe to do so) to slow them down for your friendly champs.

6. Average speed melee chasing you? Do you have Rylai's Crystal Scepter? If so, Cast Transfusion on every cooldown while running. The slow from Rylai's will help you to keep your distance while allowing you to get your health up and maybe even get the advantage on your opponent.
