Hi PlayCabex, thanks for your guide! Vladimir seems like a good option for my current ELO (high gold, low platinum). Do u think I should try aiming fot for solokills pre6 or is sacrificing farm not worth it? I really appreciate you making a guide this detailed!

C'ya!

Hello Judelmfao

First I wanna thank you for your kind words. I'm really happy that it helped you out. Now to the questions. Yea, vladimir is a really good option for every elo. No matter where you are, you can pretty much always climb with him. About solokilling, you can mostly try killing your laner. You can't really roam anywhere since you are slow af. I usually try to do both. I try to farm and poke enemy to finish him off with a flash combo for example. If you have any more questions, you can always write to me here, on stream or in league.

Best regards

Hey PlayCabex, I wanted to say thanks as reading your guide helped me solidify on to keep maining Vlad for the new season. I ran into some troubles with the new items and was considering changing my main but after reading your guide I decided not to. If possible can we play a game on NA where I can get some tips on Vlad (live spectating, whether I'm in the game or not).

My ign on NA is: TrueMalikai

Hello TrueMalikai

I'm really happy to hear that my guide helped you out and I'm glad to hear that youre gonna keep maining vlad. Once you found your champion, never let go of it no matter the nerfs or buffs ;) I would do a game, but the thing is that we are in different time zones you know and it's really hard to organize like that. Ofc I can answer questions so, you can ask me anything you wanna know about vlad.

Best regards

Hey CertainlyT

First of all I wanna thank you for your kind words. They mean a lot to me
Now to the question. Yea, you can climb to diamond pretty easily as a vladimir. This champ has a lot of 1v9 potentional. You just need to understand the champion and the damage numbers with different items. My tip for climbing are that trust your damage and yourself. Dont take unnecessary risks if the outcome won't be good 100%. Never give up because vladimir's late game is insane. If youre going for that diamond, then good luck man !

Best Regards

Why wouldnt you go riftmaker? The omnivamp alone should make it very appealing to your E offsetting the cost plus the haste and magic pen passive, it just seems like a staple to Vlad over Rocket Belt

Hello shadowbloodedge

Yea, riftmaker is definetly an option, but I guess its a personal pref. I just like hextech rocketbelt more because of the movement speed and I've gotten used to the old hextech protobelt. But once again, riftmaker is definetly an option.

Best regards

Combos aren't all right. It's better to do E-Q-R. Faster and does same dmg.

Hey Joey Bob
I mean, theres no right or wrong with combos. If that works better for you then do that. But the thing is, your r increases dmg from all sources which means theres no way youd do the same amount of damage. The thing with it being faster is also wrong, because your q animation happens when youre already in w. You can test it yourself in practice tool. If youre assuming it because of the video then yea. I guess it looks like the combo is slow af. Its an old clip. I can do that 10 times faster now.
I hope I answered you.
Best Regards

Hi,
when you are playing Vladimir and want to engane or do a full combo you must always starting with your R, because your ulti makes you deal more damage to those you who has been impacted by your ulti.
have a nice day!

hello mr PlayCabex, do you have any advice on how to trade with Vlad midlane? I struggle a lot with poke heavy champs like Leb and Ryze so any tips would be greatly appreciated

Hello Allucazum

Since vladimir's sustain is really great, so you can pretty much win every single trade. My suggestion is that try to hit your e against champion and minions at the same time and q aswell ( if poss then use q against champion, if not, then against a minion). Animation cancel is recommended aswell to hit eq even faster against the enemy. For example against lb, after youve done the eq, you can always w her w and probably e aswell, which means youll automatically win the trade cuz youll just heal the small amout of dmg she did you back.
I hope i answered your question and if you have more of them, make sure to hmu.
Best regards

Hello Hohn12332

About the ghost and ignite. You mostly want to take ignite when you have a kill chance in mid lane. Lets say you lane against some squishy champs who you can onehsot, you can take ignite. You take ghost mostly against champs who u cant kill to have more movement speed in teamfights. You can take ghost even against squishies, its kinda your choice and about your playstyle. I would take ignite when i have a kill chance in lane and ghost when i cant kill and i want to roam + to have more ms in teamfights.
I hope i answered your question. If you have more of them, you can always hmu.
Best regards

Oh, I also wonder why we take Inspiration instead of Domination then Taste of Blood and then Ravenous Hunter. By doing this we will have huge amount of sustain. I actually think that I know the reason of taking Inspiration. Because Vladimir scales well with items and Future's Market helps us to take faster the items we need and Cosmic Insight to have the capacity of spamming the abilities. Also, I thought that Spellbinder is something like core when we can buy it ( may can't buy it because of: very bad early and start, very bad minions killed, generally low gold efficient). Of coarse you know since your this high elo and the better at Vladimir. I am sorry about the double comment I made but I had to do something so I left it half-worked and the I forgot about the stuff I said now. Again good work!
Thank you

Hello again paokgr

About the domination tree. Yea, i guess it can be good, but vladimir already has a good sustain and it can be countered with an 800 gold item (exe calling) or any other healing reduction item. Since the sustain is already good, you want to get your damage items asap and melt the entire enemy team. Thats why i take future's market. Yea, cosmic insight is great to spam abilities. About the build with spellbinder, check, ive added a new build.
Thanks for your comment.
Best regards
