Your votes and comments encourage our guide authors to continue
creating helpful guides for the League of Legends community.
Vladimir is a champion that can be played both mid and solo top, he excels at lane sustain with his Q and E especially after he picks up a Will Of the ancients.
Hextech is a must have on Vlad for the extra spell vamp.
I take lucidity boots on Vladimir so that I'm able to spam my Q and harass the enemy and heal up as much as I can.
Once you grab you Will of the Ancients, which should be sometime around the 12-15 minute mark if you're doing well you will be immovable from lane with all your sustain.
Spirit Visage gives you tons of extra healing and a bit of magic resist which is very helpful for lasting longer in teamfights. Rylaih's gives you a bit more health and magic and Transfusion will Proc its slow which allows you to chase down champions that think they're going to escape you.
Once you get Hextech revolver you can start keeping stacks up on Tides of Blood which makes farming a lot easier. Press E and Q a minions and they will die, after that you can auto attack the rest of them to clear the wave. Vlad excels at pushing lanes quickly.
