Threats & Synergies
Before we start
before you start with this guide, you should know, that it is not highly optimized and should be considerd as a generally detailed starting guide for Vladimir.
Vladimir is a lot of fun to play, because of his mechanics, while he can do things, others can't do.
You can get into detail and learn with him, learn him and master him. So Vladimir is for sure a great Champion, that should be understand before you start any game.
This guide is made with love and fun for the Champion in the hope it will be usefull and will inspire players to play him.
I hope you like it and enjoy this. Have a nice time reading this guide and playing him.
Fritzs Hero (EUW - Germany)
Keep in mind, no master ever felt from heaven (as we say in germany)
If you lose, keep calm and try harder.
You can easy farm with your autoattacks or with your Q/E. Use always your third Q on the enemy, it is like an random crit. (Note: if you shouldn't done it yet, I highly recommend you to work on your last hits. This the most important thing on every lane. No Money, no win.)
W is an good escape from Nasus, ganks, but also ultimates like Ez, Ziggs and so on.
Skill your Abbilitys once and then go max first Ult and Q.
W is the last one I would skill. (Beside of the fact, that you have some enemys on your lane, that going for trades or you get many ganks. Skilling W means a great CD reduction on it. )
If Health is missing, feel free to spam Q all time.
Beside of your massiv Heal Abbility, your W is a great escape, not just from your enemy on the lane, but also from enemy ganks.
Note: Personally I have some difficultys playing against some Tryndameres,
It is based on your playstyle and skill, so give Vlad a try.
It's your playstyle, that makes him feel unique as a champion.
Don't be scared to try new things and maybe you'll get rewarded.
Hope this was usefull.
We see us on the Rift.
