LoL Summoner Spell: Flash


LoL Summoner Spell: Ignite



Hello guys today I will show u how to burst ur enemies down with Vladimir

This is my first guide so please dont harm me im training.

I use this build for Vladimir to burst Enemies down but Zhonya's and Rylai's at a lot of Utility to this build. I played very well with this build a long time. I hope u enjoy this build too.

Pros / Cons

I take flat AP in Glyphs and Quints for early burst dmg.

The Magic Pen Reds are good against guys who stack Magic resist in early and mid game.

I use the hp per level Seals to survive in mid and late game better.

This Runes are good early and mid game. In late game you need to have as much from your build as possible so if getting outfarmed its ok to "ks" a kill to finish a importent item

My Masteries are very simple offensiv ap masteris with a bit of hp they bring mostly early game bonuses like my runes but some perks (ap per level and hp per level)bring a bit late game power.
They work together very well.

I start with boots and 3 health Potions to escape from ganks and survive in the early game (till lvl 9).My first item is a Hextech Revolver to get some spellvamp but i upgrade it late since the cost of Will of the Ancients got pushed. After that i buy a Rabadons Deathcap to raise my burst and my hp coz of my passiv.If u got Rabadons Deathcap you can buy Rylais Crystal Scepter first or Zhonyas Hourglass which you buy first depends on the enemy team. When you finished both Items upgrade Hextech Revolver into Will of the Ancients to get maximum spellvamp.To finish my build i take Deathfire Grasp to raise my burst combo or Void Staff when my enemys build Magic Pen or Abyssal Scepter to defend myself against other mages . My Build is made to make the highest burst while having some defence. Important is that you use your ult before Deathfire Grasp to raise the dmg from that.

Skill Sequence

Q: I level my q as fast as possible coz the cooldown of Transfusion is dramatically reduced by rank and when its maxed at level 9 you will win nealy every lane.

W: I max W last because the true power of Sanguine Pool is nearly the same at all rankes

E: I max Tides of Blood second to farm better and to burst harder.

R: As all Ults i max Hemoplague at 6,11 and 16

Summoner Spells

My Summoner Spells are very simple:

Flash to escape or to chase ememys.

Ingite works perfect together with my ult to finish low health targets.

Creeping / Jungling

Just dont jungle with Vladimir....just dont do it
Back to Top


In Teamfights try to ult as much ememies as possible and try to foucus the ad carry if u cant get close enough to him look for other weak targets.
Use ur Sanguine Pool and Zhonyas Hourglass to survive the dmg from ur enemies (best use is ofen early in the teamfight to doge the enemies ults).

Unique Skills

This build gives you the power to instaburst a enemy(Hemoplague+ Deathfire Grasp+Ingite+Transfusion+Tides of Blood) and still survive the teamfight(Sanguine Pool+Zhonyas Hourglass)
Back to Top


Vladimir is one of the best farmer in the game use ur Q and E to lasthit if ur enemy is pushing use ur Q to dmg him and only farm with ur E.
Its important that u cant simply get back in lane dominans when ur already getting Zoned.
When Transfusion is maxed (lvl 9) you will nearly every lane cuz ur Transfusion at rank 5 has a 3-2 sec cooldown so you can simply win every trade.
Back to Top

Skills In-Depth

Q:1. Ur Transfusion dmgs instand but it has a short cast animatin so u maybe wont get a creep when you cast ur Q on a creep that has like 10 hp.
2. When u cast ur W while the blood is returning from ur Q you wont get the heal.

W:1.When u are in ur W you cant be targeted but dots and chanel spells will still dmg you
2.If u are in ur W you cant get healt by allys

E: There is no realy In-Depth information about this spell.

R:Spellshields will only block ur ult when its casted, not when the debuff already on the target
