Janna It's a support...
1
Karthus You can dodge his ultimate with your pool, don't worry about him very much.

Summary

This is a Vladimir guide I made to share my knowledge of the Blood Reaver with you guys. I hope you find this useful, and let's get to the guide.


Guide Top

Who am I?

Hello, I am moonfang158, and I'm a level 7 Vladimir main, I started league in season 6, I used to be a support main, then I decided I should try to find other lanes, so I chose top, I looked through all the champions to play, and then I saw Vladimir. I bought him, and I've mained him ever since. My favorite things to do with him is turn a gank into a double kill. I have done it many times and it is very enjoyable. I hope you find this guide useful.

Abilities

Ability Sequence



Ability Sequence
1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 9 10 11 12 13 14 15 16 17 18


Vladimir's Passive is Crimson Pact, for every 40 points of bonus health, Vladimir gains 1 AP, and for every 1 AP, Vladimir gains 1.4 bonus health. However, the AP and Health stacking only come from runes, masteries, and items, the passive does not stack with itself.

Vladimir's Q is transfusion, he drains the blood of his enemy, dealing 75/90/105/120/135 (+55% AP) magic damage, and healing himself for 15/25/35/45/55(+ 35% AP). After Vladimir has casted his Q twice, it becomes empowered, giving him the buff "Crimson Rush" for 2.5 seconds once his Q becomes available again. Once it is available, Vladimir gains a small burst of speed, and makes his next Q deal 100% or double damage, and also causes it to heal him for 40-240 (scales with level)(1% missing health per 25 AP).

Vladimir's W is Sanguine Pool. Vladimir sinks into a pool of blood, taking (20% of current health), and becoming untargetable for 2 seconds, he also gains a 37.5% movement speed buff for 1 second which rapidly decays. While in sanguine pool, Vladimir is still able to move, cast summoner spells, and use items. It deals 20/33.75/47.5/61.25/75(+2.5% bonus health) magic damage every half second, and heals Vladimir for 15% of the damage while slowing enemies above by 40%.

Vladimir's E is Tides Of Blood. Vladimir charges up a reservoir of blood, taking 2.5%-8%(based on charge duration) of his maximum health to increase the damage of this ability. Upon releasing(or after 1.5 seconds), Vladimir unleashes a nova of blood to all enemies within range, dealing between 30/45/60/75.90(+35% AP)(+2.5% max health) and 60/90/120/150/180 (+100% AP)(+6% max health). It also slows Vladimir when fully charged, however, it also slows enemies when fully charged.

Vladimir's Ultimate is Hemoplague. Vladimir infects the target area with a plague, affected enemies take 10% increased damage for 4 seconds. After 4 seconds, enemies hit by Vladimir's ultimate will take 150/250/350(+70% AP), and Vladimir is healed for the same amount(healing is increased by 50% for each additional champion hit past the first).

I like to run CDR and ability power for Vladimir. The CDR helps him early game, when he has very long cooldowns. And the ability power also helps for Vladimir's passive.

Spells

I always take summoner spells teleport and flash.

The reason I take teleport with Vladimir in top lane, is that I prefer it. It also allows great late game teleports. Vladimir is an amazing champion in team fights, so teleport allows you to go to a ward/minion, and use your ultimate to help with the team fight.

I take flash on almost all my champions. I take it on Vladimir for the escapes, kills, and just to help my team by using flash, then ultimate into everyone. It is also good for tower diving.


Guide Top

Team Fights

Ok, so here is where Vladimir excels. Vladimir is an amazing team fighter due to his tides of blood and his ultimate hemoplague. If your team is winning a team fight, just keep doing what your doing, however, if your team is losing, or, the team fight just started, you can do many differant options. You can flash in and cast hemoplague, or you can just cast hemoplague if you are in range. Another thing you can do in team fights, is initiate. Vladimir's kit allows him to initiate team fights very well, he can easily take down 2-3 people if Vladimir's ultimate is used correctly.


Guide Top

Farming

Farming with Vladimir is a little bit difficult early game, but late game it is quite easy. Early game just use your transfusion to pick off the minions with low health, and basic attack the other ones when your transfusion is on cooldown. You can use tides of blood as well, however the health cost is not always worth the farm and can, and will kill you sometimes.

The End

Thank you guys so much for reading my guide and I hope you enjoyed it. I also hope very much that this guide will help you all get better at Vladimir, and will also help make him more popular.
