This guide is insanely big, it gives so much information, even about the skins xD
I'll continue reading this when I come back from school, but for now, +1 upvote. Guide looks very nice, I can already see the amount of effort that went into it and I feel like I'll be able to learn how to counter Vladimir with it.

Have a nice day,

Great guide! Just want to point out that celebrity was changed in 8.23 and no longer gives an adaptive boost.

Jesus there is a lot on this guide, this is what every guide needs. A massive amount of explaining and helping people new to vlad learn him. I just love it when someone takes there time and effort to create something so helpful like this. Please keep it up as this is probably the best guide i have read in a while.

Curious to why you deleted the 1 Shot Build on your guide. Also wondering if the Shurelya's change which gives you 100% mana regen will make any difference in build path.

Howdy mate! Ironically I deleted the one shot build guide because I thought no one was looking at it ahahah, I might put it back up now that you've pointed it out :)

For the Shurelya's changes, yes it did get nerfed in many ways, however I believe it still is a key item for Vladimir and is beneficial to the team. I have seen the pick rate for this item decrease (for obvious reasons) due to it being less effective, however I'll have to experiment and I may have to update the build path again...

I tried your build in somewhat high elo elo (gold 2 to plat 3) and late gate is a problem.

First of all, when the late game comes (5th item or so), he starts to fall off a little and can't do that much damage as mid game because of all the shields. It might just be me thinking but do you think building Void Staff as a 5th item might be a better option due to enemy stacking MR at this point?

Also, for your runes, I was wondering if getting Gathering Storm instead of Scorch and Cheap Shot instead of Taste of Blood is a good idea, since Vladimir doesn't need the extra healing from Taste of Blood and Cheap Shot does the same amount of damage but is true damage and Gathering Storm can help you not fall off as hard, however, i've heard that Vlad is strong late game, so maybe it is just me.

I found huge success with your build but it only works well when my team can end the game early (http://sg.op.gg/summoner/userName=aikairi) because after 30-35 mins in, I would always have less impact on the game.

Super duper glad you feel that way, i've been trying a lot to keep this guide relevant to the meta for Vladimir, and your comments really help keep that motivation within me (It takes like 2 hours to update all the code etc so it's relevant each patch -_-). I'm glad that you smashed Rengar, i absolutely despise top lane Rengar players, it's a lane full of jump scares ahaha.

Once again thank you for going out of your way to say those words <3

Sorry for the late reply!

Yeah Vladimir will always be a beast mid-late game, it's just the early game in the laning phase that most struggle at. Learning to farm with Vladimir and also be a presence in lane with little damage so you don't get denied every single CS is tough. Perhaps I should go into more depth about laning phase?

I'm glad you are enjoying Vlad he will always be in my top 3 and I hope this guide in someway helps you out <3

This is such a good guide :D SOO much juicy detail and advice. I love the scripting too. I needed this guide to learn how to counter Vlad because prior to this guide, I had no idea what he did anyway XD But now that I know his ablilities I'll be able to counter him more effectivly. Any advice on how to counter him?

Thank you for going out of your way to send me that compliment thanks so much! Yeah Vladimir is honestly a bit busted as of 8.3, due to his late game being very good and yet his early game near impossible to kill. Through my experience my best thought to countering Vladimir are champions like Jax, Master Yi etc. Due to Vladimir having no CC in his kit and these guys able to destroy him with autos and gap closing abilities it's near impossible to escape without flash.

However if you don't play champions like this that's okay, If you play an AD champ into him try get most of the time Executioner's Calling or not so much Hexdrinker if you don't feel confident. Another really good strategy to counter Vladimir is to have the minions freezed near your tower, as he has no CC if you have a jungler nearby you should be able to waste his flash or take him down. Keep in mind Vladimir having flash is essential 90% of the time in order to kill you, I just know through playing him.

But to be honest any champion can beat any champion you just have to practice it so If these tips don't help let me know by messaging me directly on commenting here again I'll try and think up some more.

what time should I swap ignite for ghost?

[-]
Dr Eggmund | February 12, 2018 3:56pm
I would recommend swapping Ignite for Ghost when you have identified that the laning phase is over and that you will be needed in teamfights, Ghost is a lot better than Ignite as you can only apply ignite to one person, Ghost allows us with our lack of range in our attacks to stick to the enemy.

However though if the enemy team has a Dr. Mundo, Aatrox or anyone like that who heals way to much, unless your team also has an Ignite or Executioner's Calling then I would stick with Ignite to win those team fights against annoying lifesteal champions.

Hope this helped :)
