Threat Champion Notes
2
Illaoi She's risen in popularity as of patch 6.11 and is really strong but vlad can absolutely destroy her since the huge range advantage and your w completely negating her ult, just w and pool away when she ults. harrass when you can, she shouldn't really be able to win the lane at all since your kit is well suited against her.

Jax jax is the easiest lane of your life, deny him cs, harrass and when he tries to trade keep your distance as you harras, if he q's on you pool away and repeat, you should be able to shove the wave extremely hard but you dont have to if he's being too passive, just spam your mastery rating and wait for him to trade a cs for a q.

Getting Ganked

As Vlad you are succeptible to ganks because you push naturally so keep your brushes warded and never waste your w.
In some situations though you need to understand your power, Vlad has some very nice damage and junglers unless their fed, or tanky are squishy and many levels below you as vlad you have this "Illaoi" factor where if you get ganked you can manage to kill the jgler fast enough but not always and your going to want level 6 and atleast 1 damage item first. you can also stall ganks really well, so if you see your jungler nerby and can't get away ping like a mad man ghost and try to not get cc'd as you wait for your jungler.


Guide Top

TP Ganks and Preassuring

this is something very fundamental of top lane, when your in soloque (or i guess dynamic que now RIP) you can't rely on your team to win their lanes too. Vlad has no cc but he does have damage so if you tell your botlane to ward a lane brush or the middle of the lane you can wait until they push and tp down for a nice friendly "get rekt m8". this is pretty hard to explain and comes with time, just because the enemy is pushing doesn't mean it's going to be a good gank, just keep that in mind and do your best.
Preassuring is another way to help your team in a more indirect way, if you get strong enough you should be able to 1v2 and atleast trade evenly or get away with your sanik speed so keep the jungler in your lane rather than your homies.
