Not Updated For Current Season
The masteries shown here are not yet updated for the current season, the guide author needs to set up the new masteries. As such, they will be different than the masteries you see in-game.
In the last patch vladimir was nerfed which made a lot of vlad players really mad. The nerf wasn't big but still lowered his stats. This build still works well but I may also add a warmogs armour into it. Comment down below of what changes I shall make.
As many of you know Vladimir is a Ranged mage.I was trying Out some build that will fit him well and i got stuck on this one. I really like how you build Vladimir with this build Early game and late game. This is my first build so please leave a comment below for me to find out if this build is good and as you know the thumbs up button is always free to click on if you like my build.
1st I like to start with my Q ability (Transfusion). Transfusion is an overpowered spell which costs nothing deals heavy amount of magic damage and heals you. I max it out 1st because its cooldown will become 2 second and will deal a LOT amount of magic damage.
2nd I like to get Sanguine Pool (W). It is a good ability for escaping. If you haven't got First blood yet their jungler will probably try to gank you first because Vladimir is squishy early game so don't hesitate to use your W and run to safety behind your turret
When I am level 4 I want to get Tides Of Blood. It is good for killing minions because it is an AoE ability that deals damage to everyone around you... but don't use it too much when low health because it will need more and more HP cost.
Pros / Cons...
Pros - Really strong Late game
- A good escape plan
- Doesn't use Mana Power
- Farming really well
Cons - Squishy early and late game if u do not build a lot of AP
- needs to coordinate with team to be effective
FIRSTI get Boots and Health potions, ranged players love to hit slow enemies.
AFTERthat I get Hextech Revolver Which is a really good item for Vladimir that has 20% of spell vamp which will heal him more when he uses his Q (Transfusion) ability.
THIRDI get Sorcerers Shoes which gives you magic penetration and movement speed. I recommend This item because of the magic penetration that it gives you, and with your Runes you will get pretty much.
I added the Mejai's Soulstealer item only if you are good with vladimir and getting a lot of kills... if you don't manage to kill a lot of enemies and not stack soulstealer <b>DO NOT GET THIS ITEM</b>...
Vladimir has a lot of abilities that other champions don't have so take advantage of them. Tides of blood is a ability that can find nearby enemies in stealth (ex. Jack in The Box) and you can also use it several times when you are not in a team fight to make the damage more and to heal yourself more when you already got Hextech Revolver or using a Health Potion.
