    Viktor straight up wins this match up. That is, if you max power transfer first. I've always considered Viktor to be a major counterpick to Vladimir as he can't do **** against you. You completely outtrade and outburst him.

    Setup I use:
    9x Greater Mark of Magic Penetration
    9x Greater Seal of Armor
    9x Greater Glyph of Magic Resist
    3x Greater Quintessence of Movement Speed


    Against Vlad I tend to go for a Chalice of Harmony/ Hextech Revolver combo.

    Power Transfer is maxed for the low cool down, low mana cost and high damage. It allows for constant harass and it shields you as well. Augment: Death is your choice 99% of the games. Otherwise pick Gravity.

    Or I can make something like 2 augments if using Enchantment: Furor which works with Power Transfer + buying Augment: Death.
    And what about items? Im always rushing Abyssal Mask after buying augment, then Rabadon's Deathcap.

    Are you maxing Power Transfer for big dmg output when he comes to use Transfusion and to prevernt damage from his Tides of Blood? And what about The Hex Core? Should I take Augment: Power or like always Augment: Death?

    In my opinion, the match-up is fairly even. The main thing that you need to do as Viktor is to use Death Ray when Vladimir tries to come in for a Transfusion. You can use Power Transfer on him, but that is about the same reason as Transfusion; so, you could easily lose that trade if you do not throw in a Death Ray. In other words, try to stay out of range of his Transfusion, and only get in range if you can confidently burst him down.

    In regards of Sanguine Pool, try not to make it obvious when you do your burst. If anything try to bait his Sanguine Pool out because that will grant him no escape from your burst.

    Vladimir's level 9 wave clear is not as strong as yours. So, if you can push him under his turret, you should see if you can roam and help your team out on the map.

    Hope this helps, and good luck.

    [[Greater Quintessence of Armor Penetration]]
    will yield: Greater Quintessence of Armor Penetration

    It's BBB Code not really a theme. You can always check out jhoijhoi's Getting Started Guide: . Or in short all you have to do is put double brackets around the name of an ability, champion, item, rune, or mastery. For example,
    [[Viktor]], [[Power Transfer]], [[Boots of Speed]], [[Greater Quintessence of Desolation]], [[Havoc]]
    will all yield: Viktor, Power Transfer, Boots, Greater Quintessence of Desolation, Havoc

    Thank you for that explanation of htis match-up cause i was really upset of losing to vladimir.
    Off-topic: can u give me link on theme where I can learn how insert links on champs skills and items into messages?

    Yeah for Viktor all you really need to do is farm, and roam. I would go AP/lvl since you can kind of kite Vladimir with Death Ray. I would go 21/0/9 because Vladimir shouldn't be able to get in range to get his damage off without the help of a teammate.
    A State of Art | January 26, 2013 3:49am
    If i understood this right that lane is about farm and not about fighting here right?
    And if this lane occurs should I take ability power per lvl runes or magic resist; masteries 21/9/0 top get some extra hp or 21/0/9 to get some extra mp?
