This is simply for Vlad users who know how to use him and are looking for an amazing build to try out. i think its the best but thats yet to be debated. The build says 3800 HP And 499 AP but when im editing it, it shows over 5000 HP and 799 AP so its not takeing his Passive into account. But yea its got well over 5000 HP =). I wish anyone who uses my build the best of luck. I am in no way claiming to have the best build possible but i think that it is a great build no less.
Please feel free to comment if you have any ideas that can improve my build. and as always Flamers and ragers/haters need not comment as i will simply ignore your post and you'll just make yourself look worse. =)
Each item has either HP, Life/spell steal, AP or HP Regen or some of all of them.
which is exactly what vladamir needs in every aspect. in my opinion anyone who tries to stack high ammounts of armor on a vlad hasnt grasped what an AP tank is. AP tanks should be able to grab TONS of HP and still be able to hit somewhat decently against enemies and the spell vamp is a absolute must have for any AP tank. Especialy Vladamir, It totaly compliments his Transfusion and Tides of Blood stacks.
This build is extremely expencive but even just finishing the recipes and getting the peices for most of them also serve to be very beneficial to Vlad.
I chose heal also simply because he uses HP to cast his spells therefore you probly want to have that heal handy when ur chaseing down a gank with ur buddies and u wanna get that last tides of blood off without bringing your hp low enough for you to be easy one hit.
Vladamir late game is an AMAZING carry if you havent steadily fed the other team of course. Its obvious that Vladamir will have issues with champions that have extremly high Attack damage. Which is another reason i chose a build with so much hp to pretty much counter that being a factor. Having all that HP and the Ability power to back it up with transfusion heals makes you able to take heaps of damage and gain all that life right back within a matter of seconds end game.
Early game you just need to be careful about yout timeing on ganks or chaseing enemies at the right time ect. the best thing for you to do early game will be to play lane control and use your range and transfusion to your advantage. you might not be able to kill someone early on but you'll make them think twice about trying to push you back haha. Vladamir can strike fear into the eyes of his enemies early game and grab that intimidation factor that really helps for gaining levels over your enemy. If you want to jungle on this charecter or looking to grab a few blue or red buffs if your jungler doesnt mind then you can go ahead and do that past lvl 7.
Costs HP to cast spells.
AD Champions can hurt you untill mid to late game.
Pros: Extremly good carry late game.
Amazing AP tank can eat alot of damage.
Able to stay in lane for very very long periods of time.
Masterful minion killer.
Very unique playstyle.
Early game harrasment is no challenge for this champion.
