Magic pen for the basic early kills.Great for also helping with ganks or high magic resist tagets.

Great Seal Of Vitality Health Per Lvl runes are great for early to late game. this is also going to go great with your passive(i will go in-death with that in the skills section)

Flat Ap runes for early game bouns damage with your skills.

The Same as your glyphs more ap = mroe damage and health.

For my masteries i go 3/6/21 taking a AP Boost in the Offense tree, Magic Resist and Armor in the Defense tree and i take all the non-mana masteries in the Utility tree. this is a very short section because i can't really think of anything else to put in here :D

Item's one of the best parts of vlad.

this item is good to start with because you dont have mana so no need to get mana/mana reg items. I also take one Health Potion to keep me in lane longer.

This item is for early game spell vamp.i like this item because of what i can change it to. either Hextech Gunblade or the great Will of Ancients.

Will of Ancients This is my next item. why you may ask? Because it also give allies a boost in spell vamp and ap! great team item.

this item is perfect for vlad his passive works great with the health and ap this item gives. Also this item adds a slow affect on hit with a spell which makes it pretty hard to run with out ghost/flash

ahhhh death cap oh how i love you so. this is your most needed item. why you may ask? Beacuse it guys you 155 AP BOOST and 30% Magic Pen!!! i hear a GG coming on

This Item is basicly for some heavy ap teams thanks to Crazy Smurf saying that warmorg's is not really good in scaling so thank you.Ps i really take comments into account.

I like this item. Alot. it's may not be good as Thornmail but this is still a very good item.

Every 40 points of bonus health gives Vladimir 1 ability power and every 1 point of ability power gives Vladimir 1.8 bonus health (does not stack with itself)

Your Passive. One of the best passive in the game. WHY? because you gain health for AP and Ap for health. do i hear 6 warmog's? TROLL BUILD......just kidding don't do that.....well try it and let me know how it goes :D

Vladimir drains the lifeforce of his target, dealing magic damage and healing himself.

Vlad's Nuke. Basicly how you use this skill is Run in hit with Transfusion and Get The **** Out Of There. FUN TIMES!!!!

Vladimir sinks into a pool of blood for 2 seconds, becoming untargetable and slowing enemies above him by 40% for 1 second, and deals magic damage over the duration plus heals himself for 12.5% of that amount.

AoE for a escape and ganking tool. Great escape tool with ghost and gank tool with ghost.

Vladimir unleashes a torrent of blood dealing magic damage to nearby enemies.Each cast gives him an Empowered stack (max 4), increasing his healing and regeneration by 8% per stack for 10 seconds. Additionally, his next tides of Blood deals 25% more damage and costs 50% more health per stack.

SPAM THIS SKILL. The reason i say spam it is because it will give you more health reg and gave from your Q. Use this when you want to kill your taget or getting ready to kill thet taget.

Vladimir infects the target area with a virulent plague which increases the damage nearby enemies take from all sources by 14% for 5 seconds. After these 5 seconds, infected enemies take magic damage.

Your Ult, this is your skill to start team fights and mostly get you team to do as much damage to them as much as possible. so your ult can kill them all for a easy penta. don't think your team will do all the work tho, still attack your those tagets.

Farming. This is very important factorer to vlad. you NEED to farm basic auto or with your Q either way YOU NEED to FARM UP. a well farmed vlad is like a a fed vlad just chaos. there is not other way i can put it. you can be lvl 18 when everyone in the game is lvl 14-15 with a well farmed/fed vlad.

Guide Top

Team Fights

This is one think vlad is good at team fights why? becuase vlad as 3 AoE skills Tides of Blood Hemoplague and Sanguine Pool. this is a great combo for a team fight. open up with hemoplauge then follow up by Tides of Blood (ps you can also use Transfusion after Tides of Blood ) and slow them down with Sanguine Pool.
