Introduction

This is my first guide, and i'm planning on making more, i've found Vladimir an outrageously fun character to play and every game i play i usually get 15+ kills and a pretty low death rate.
I'm not saying this is the best build, but give it a try and tell me its not a good one, you do have to focus on last hitting a lot which comes easier to some then others but each to their own i'll want you all to have as much fun as i do when i'm playing Vladimir.
All i can say is being able to run into 3 people at full health and getting away with at triple kill is fun.

This is a pretty basic guide and i want to explain how i play Vladimir and how to react in different fights.

Pro's and Con's.

Pro's and Con's of this build

Pro's:
Easy 1 vs 3 fights against other carry's.
A lot of burst damage.
You can run into as many as you want and pick up some easy kills.

Con's:
People will focus you.
Last hitting is a high priority as with all Champions.
You'll get a constant OMG VLAD IS OP.

Runes

A pretty standard rune build
Marks = Full Magic pen x9
Seals = Health per Level x9
Glyphs = Ability power per level x9
Quintessence = Health per level x2 and Ability power per level x1

Masteries and Summoner Spells

Again standard Masteries, i find teleport and flash a must for both escape from a fight and being able to stay in a fight constantly, also it helps for end game ganks.

How i play Vladimir

As soon as you get into a game pick up an Amplifying tome and a health pot and make your way to mid. I always attempt to stay in lane as long as possible, Maxing Q at 9 is a must like all Vladimir builds, i usually go back at 1200 gold and pick up boots and a blasting wand and teleport straight back into mid.

Everytime my opponent comes in range i hit Tides of blood and Transfusion in that order due to the stack that ToB gives you and Transfusion replenishes all HP lost. If im lucky i get my first gank at level 2-3 but if not i wait until level 4 when i pick up my pool, wittle them down to half health with ToB and Trans, then when all cooldowns are off i flash in, ToB, Trans, Pool and their dead.

Obviously different scenarios happen and you will want to go in for the sure kill, if you dont think you can kill them at half health wittle them down a little more with Transfusion and then go in for the gank.

This build is all about minion kills, you really have to be on the ball to get each bit of gold as it will be a high advantage for you.

I then follow the build as stated up top but there are variables, you can take out the Void Staff for an Abyssal Scepter and obviously take out what you see fit.

In a normal fight my combo's are as stated:
Tides of blood
Transfusion
Sanguine Pool
( As soon as your back up )
Tides of blood
Transfusion
Hemoplague ( If necessary )

Summary

Well this is my build and guide for beginner Vladimir players.
Have fun playing Vlad and remember, Take a solo lane for quick level's, as soon as you hit level 9 you will be almost unkillable.

If anyone has any claims or problems give me a shout.
