Crimson Pact (PASSIVE)
Vladimir Passive Ability
Threats & Synergies
Don't get caught in his E and you'll be fine. Don't get too cocky with your Crimson Rush.
You can easily trade with her no problem, and you can usually kill her with the help of your jungler no problem.
I hate Aatrox because of his passive, but he's easy to deal with as long as you have your W up.
He is as much of a sustain god as you. Get Ignite instead of Ghost or Flash (depending on enemy comp).
He is another sustain god and has a lot of damage, alongside a cancerous execute, AND he can easily trade with his Q. Stay back and don't get too cocky if you're below 75% health.
He out-ranges you hard, even though he lacks sustain (unless if he picks Doran's Shield) so stay back and keep Q'ing.
She is a shittier Garen. You can easily trade her and her sustain isn't as scary as Garen's.
You will almost always have more health than her, so watch out for her stuns. She can also easily trade with you using the said stun, so be careful and look for cheeky Crimson Rush Q's.
Good Jayce's are scary when they go balls deep on you. Keep healing and you'll be fine. Bad Jayce's are easy.
He kinda out-ranges you but you can keep healing. He also has no resource bar for his harassing tool so ask for ganks post-6. Make sure you have your ult up.
Does anyone play Kled anymore?
Victorious Maokai skin is a big thing right now post-gold elo so you'll often face a solo Maokai, at least for a while. He will sustain better than you IF you cast your abilities too often AND you won't be able to kill him. He's truly a nightmare for Vlad.
Very easy lane, even if he becomes scary in late game since your ult gives your whole team a damage increase against any champions hit. Don't act dumb and you'll be good.
Pantheon is super easy since he doesn't have a level 6 power spike. You out-range his Q and his passive shield is useless against you.
Only an easy match up if you avoid head-butting her whenever her E is up. Other than that, you have better sustain than her so you'll do fine.
Rengar is a scary bruiser top laner now so I'd be careful.
Cocky toxic Riven mains are very annoying if they actually know how to do proper combos. If you come up against some Riven chump, you'll devastate them.
No resource bar, super easy wave clearing, constant harass tool, ability that gives him a shield and movement speed AND an ult that gives you ebola is certainly annoying BUT you can out-sustain him.
Don't get flipping flipped.
Build as if you're building against AP, even if he's going for an on-hit build, since these builds hit more in AP than in AD. You can super easily sustain against him but don't get cheesed.
You can easily harass him and he can't out-trade you if you play this properly.
Yasuo mains tend to get very cocky, to the point where they'll tower dive you often, and you can easily cheese them using your ULT-E-W.
He has 3 abilities dedicated his trading combo but he'll run out of mana relatively fast, which means you can out-sustain him.
The second step to sustaining is to use your Q all the time. You should also avoid casting E (unless if it's for a last hit) and especially avoid casting your W since it'll drain 1/5th of your total HP. Make sure that your defensive W's are worth casting, and never cast an offensive W without casting E before it.
