Hello to everyone who is reading this!
I have one simple but tricky question.
How to build Vladimir when he's played on top?
I just bought him because he was on RP sale and I want to know how to play him top lane.
Of course I saw that we have no "high-rated" S3 top Vladimir guides :/
Please introduce me to this top blood lord :)

HP stacking is good in S3 and HP stacking has always been good on Vlad so you could probably get away with rushing a warmogs top and then just normal ap bruiser builds
Thanks to TheNamelessBard for the signature

AP bruiser is great on him. I think wota, rylais, liandrys, abyssal, zhonyas, rabadons is a fun and effective build for him.

early revolver, don't upgrade to wota for a while
you can choose to go warmogs, liandrys, rylais or rabad00ns deathcape first
after that just get another
and another
the only thing you don't get early is zhonyas, no point getting stasis active until later

Btw thank you for tips!

Why would you get Warmogs as a first item? It barely helps his damage at all and won't help you win the lane.

You definitly need Spellvamp on Vlad so your E won't damage yourself, so early Revolver is kinda the given. Personally I like to go for Rylai's Crystal Scepter at that point for more Health and CC. Warmogs is indeed nice, but it give you only 25 AP which doesn't really increase your damage that much.


I'd rather go for Rylais and Liandry's Torment which give you 800 Health + 196 Health through your passive. Yes going for Warmogs after Rylais is 300 Gold cheaper, but you get 140 AP to go with it and in addition you get 1 extra form of CC and a %Health proc. then I'd go Rabadons and finally Warmogs because Rabadon's increases your AP by 25% and that in turn gives you additional Health.

Your AP through items at that point should be Hextech Revolver + Rylai's Crystal Scepter + Liandry's Torment + Rabadon's Deathcap so 300 AP base + ~24 AP for your Passive + 25% Bonus -> 405 AP -> 567 Bonus Health through your passive, which should be quite enough to survive to that point. If you're still feeling squishy go Warmogs after these items and I'd be surprised to see you bursted down.

OK just rush a hextech and THEN get health, dont rush warmogs you will have 0 damage and lose every skirmish and trade. I would say hextech, rylais, finish wota, then build based on necessity, possibly liandrys then warmogs. DON'T RUSH HEALTH.
