Welcome To Tanktown
I know that now, in this "new era," the majority of people are playing AP Vlad, as his innate gives him Health from AP. Well, it also gives him AP from Health, making him the ultimate tank. He will have tanky items, and a tank-sized health bar, but, where is the AP coming from? The one item tanks dont buy, Vlad is getting for free! He will be able to withstand the wrath of enemies, and take them down in the process, as all his skills are AP based, and that is exactly what he will be getting! Its like free AP (Except you have to buy your tank items in order to get it.)!
Greater Mark of Fortitude-Health. We are playing a Tanky Vlad, no? And with him, like I said before about the whole UberTank thing with the AP/Health Innate, this rune will be converted in to...MORE AP!
Greater Seal of Vigor Greater Seal of Vigor-HP5. You are playing a Tank, with health (Duh), you are going to need a way to get some of it back without recalling so you can tank more!
Greater Glyph of Vitality Greater Glyph of Vitality-Health Per Level. Basically, this is the same exact description of the Greater Mark of Health, but its not just BOOM health, it comes to you over time, growing bigger per level, also benefiting your Innate.
Greater Quintessence of Regeneration Greater Quint of Regeneration-HP5. I can't stress this enough, you are a Tank. You NEED HP5. You CRAAAVE HP5!
