THE ONLY VLADIMIR GUIDE OF A NOOBS PERSPECTIVE

By Niqkl
INTRODUCTION
Hello! I am honored for me to show you my Noob´s Perspective on Vladimir. My Name is Niqkl, I am an austrian boy who just plays this game for fun. I picked it up in mid Season 10 and never played it before. I found great interest in Vladimir and now I main him. Up to date, I have 120k Mastery on him which is the most on my champs by far and I feel (kinda) qualified for doing this because I actually have a close to 70 percent Winrate overall on him. [. I love Vladimir since he uses no Mana, and has the ability to 1v9 and even if hes behind, he can still beat the fed enemy carries.
PROS/CONS Back to Top
  • PROS
  • Good sustain in lane due to Transfusion
  • Good at splitpushing due to his waveclear
  • Scales extremely well with both items and levels
  • Is a good diver and can reset tower aggro with Sanguine Pool
  • like Kassadin but better
    • CONS
    • Very high cooldowns on Transfusion, Sanguine Pool and Tides of Blood in the early game
    • You are also probably the squishiest and weakest mage in the early game
    • vulnerable to hyperscaling lane opponents (kassadin, anivia etc.)
    • Absolutely NO CC OR GAP CLOSER, you are just pure damage.
    • Gets cucked by all ins (especially by tanky bruisers (Aatrox, Sett, ..))
    • The health management is hard to learn

      By the way, I must excuse myself for the horrible design as far as coding goes, Ive never done it, I am pretty new and it is quite hard for me! xD
EARLY GAME Back to Top
As I said, youre probably the weakest champion ingame early. Your goal are those juicy 10cs/min, and that as good as possible, every game.
As Vladimir, you can try to go for a trade everytime you have an empowered Transfusion in the first few minutes, but your primary goal is always farming. Play as selfish as possible.
Your Rengar is getting cucked by the enemy Taliyah at scuttle and your enemy Yasuo is on the move already? Act like youre Lee Sin in real life and keep on farming, then comes the mandatory mute. It is what it is. You have your first minor spike with your Hextech Rocketbelt and thats when you can actively engage. But nevertheless keep farming and wait until lategame.
LATEGAME Back to Top
Imagine there is a Vladimir getting 10cs/min with 300cs at 30 minutes. Now its time to ff for the enemy. Go to every teamfight, and oneshot every not-tank as you go by. Its that easy.
Conclusion Back to Top
Thank you for reading this far, and I hope I could teach you a thing or to about vladimir, from my perspective of an intermediate player. If you have any questions, Twitter @NiqklFN. With that being said, have a great day!
