Welcome to my guide: Vladimir, the Tanking Caster
The title does NOT mean that youre a tank, it means youre a caster with more health than MFing chogath(YES REALLY!).


First ill explain Vladimirs Abilities.
Transfusion
this is your harass spell, its true potential starts showing when you get your spirit visage and warmog's armor, and reach level nine, if you actually get the items before level 9. At this point you should heal more than 90 health per cast.(with a 3 second cooldown will count as 150 health per 5).

Sanguine Pool
This is your escape mechanism and your "damage between rotations". this means that you when ganking, or towerdiving, will use this after youve used Q and E. This spell SHOULD make you untargetable by all spells and attacks. Ive run into shen being able to run over you and taunt you(see what i did there?) ehm, using shadowdash and taunting you while underground. This spell has a HP ratio of 15% of your health, which just so conveniently has a great synergy with warmog's and your passive. Also keep in mind, this spell gives you a high increase in movespeed(about 60 i think).

Tides of Blood
This is your aoe spell .......... it works like kassadins ultimate, every time you cast it more than once in a row, it increases in cost and damage(50% cost and 25% everything else). With this spell at rank 5 in the late game you can 2 hit entire waves with this.

Hemoplague
This is your best spell in a teamfight, this might lead to a few kills in the end of the fight. It increases damage taken by targets, and 5 seconds later they take a huge amount of damage, with a punch like karthus' ultimate after a fight, if you know what i mean!


Now i will explain the Mastery build:
You will go with a 9/0/21 build, avoiding all masteries that is affecting mana. everything will pretty much do you good.


Spells:
Ignite should be used on your target in a team fight, your target should most often be one of those that got hit by your Hemoplague, pick one among those that are affected and ignite and nuke them. Ghost is always good, but flash can be used too if you prefer.


Rune build:
Magic penetration and ability power can always be used, so magic penetration for marks, health per level for seals, ability power for glyphs, flat health are good for all champion so we go with those for quintessences.


Item build:
Doran's shield is a great startout item, it gives health and health regen, great for your laning phase. If you go in a decent laning phase you wont need to recall("bluepill") before you got gold for both sorcerer's shoes and spirit visage. if you get an incredible early game you want to buy mejai's before spirit visage, and if your stacks are falling in the end game you might have to sell mejai's for your guardian angel. Many people say Warmog's is bad, but for Vladimir this item will increase his ability power alot, and make him very tanky, not to forget it increases his W's power. Rylai's will make your various spells Slow, making it easier to chase. Zhonya's ring will increase your health just aswell as ability power. Guardian angel will make it safer to stand in the middle of everything in team fights.


Spell Priority: Hemoplague>Transfusion>Tides of Blood>Sanguine Pool


This concludes my guide.
