Summoner Spells Back to Top

I normaly always go for flash ignite just to have enough kill pressure from level 6, furthermore ignite can be casted while in vladimirsanguinepool.png which makes it a nice executing summoner spell.


When i get into matchups like zed/riven i sometimes go for exhaust because otherwise they do way to much dmg for my no armor early game but normaly i go for ignite flash too which doesn't always work out but you know no worries we are going for the kills in this guide :D

New Runes Back to Top

Masteries Back to Top

45% cd ?! we are going for it it's just so good if you have your spellvamp item in lane you'll just never die with so much cd and it's also very good for under tower  trading which i'll explain later in this guide.

i think the masteries are pretty self explaining so if you still have questions ask me.

I sometimes take 18/12 masteries (-5 points inintelligence -1 point in thunderlord + 5points in piercing thoughts +1point in deathfire touch)  

YOU want to HEAL LIKE BOSS? okay dude do this one it acutally works (vlad has heals himself and will of the acient gives healing too NOT SPELL VAMP) try it
I actually use these runes in ranked xD

r-q-e-w max you max the q for sustain after that the e for lower cd and more dmg in lane because the w will only be a escape or dodging skill in lane. 


Items Back to Top

Starting Items

Core Items

    always rush will of the acient/ionia boots
    liandry's torment when they have a pretty tanky team spirit visage if they don't have a full ap team i would always choose spirit visage above abyssal just because of the passiv, rabadons is a pretty good item too but not as a second item in my opinion rylai's gives so much more if you don't really think you'll die go for rabadons instead of spirit visage, void staff in late pls.
    example full build
    I often go spirit instead of rabadons but just do how you feel

VS

Ahri

Medium

Just farm till 6 after that you can just q her all the time under tower and force her back but still be carefull of her all in.

I'm giving this matchup a medium because she can abuse you pre level 6 somewhat hard if you can't dodge the ahriorbofdeception.png

VS

Akali

Easy

pre level 6 just q her all the time and try to hold her back from farming and kite her, at level 6 she can start to trade with you but she can't go into you all the time thanks to minion agro also remember the cooldown of her akalismokebomb.png it is a pretty key ability from her and remember your vladimirtidesofblood.png hits her even if she isn't visible but in range.

VS

Anivia

Medium

She fucking hurts holy i would even consider going magic resist early if you can't dodge flashfrost.png which should be easy to dodge she will fuck you early otherwise you can farm and punish her early at lvl 6 her trades will be very strong try to dodge her frostbite.png with your vladimirsanguinepool.png but you shouldn't try to all in her just farm and wait for ganks it will be a farm lane.

VS

Annie

Medium

Poke her after she used her q on minions BUT be careful her q has a cd of just 2 seconds.

She'll burst you pretty heavely late game if don't dodge anything or don't have your 3065.png.
She is pretty squishy though so if you start to get some levels and your 3145.png you can start to outrade her by using  vladimirtransfusion.png on her and minions to sustain the dmg up again that she did to you and she'll need to back pretty fast if she doesn't spent a fortune on potions

VS

Azir

Medium

farm lane i guess you can punish him undertower and you can even dodge his ult with your vladimirsanguinepool.png so it's a okay matchup and a farm matchup but azir has more kill pressure on you.

VS

Brand

Easy

Everything important from him is dodgeable with your vladimirsanguinepool.png.

So go for boots try and dodge somebrandfissure.pngand brandblaze.png , farm up until level 9 and start pushing him in,if he starts to run low on mana in early levels he'll be useless so force him out of lane by trading agressively.

VS

Diana

Hard

If she gets ahead she can kill you constantly be very careful with this matchup and just farm 

VS

Dr. Mundo

Easy

JUST use vladimirtransfusion.png on him and farm .... that's about it for the matchup there isn't much he can do about it pre level 6 because you can easily kite him in your minions and he'll lose the trade.

Late game you should too be able to 1v1 him if he doesn't build magic resist only or he hits every infectedcleavermissilecast.png and somehow out damages you

VS

Fizz

Medium

Poke fizz early and dodge his fizzmarinerdoom.png or fizzjump.png with your vladimirsanguinepool.png and he'll lose this lane but be aware of his all in if you mess up there is a big chance that you just die he will do a lot of dmg.  But he is very vulnerable early it's easy to poke him out of lane early.

VS

LeBlanc

Medium

You can dodge everything from her with your vladimirsanguinepool.png early game she gets the better of you but as you start getting levels and items you will be able to get good trades in if you are able to dodge her combo

VS

Lux

Easy

You won't really get to her early but that isn't even needed after you get your precious spellvamp items go ahead and start trading with her you'll outtrade her thanks to the spellvamp. Additionally everything can be dodged by you with your vladimirsanguinepool.png and because you can see the dmg comming it's not even hard to dodge just don't get caught up in very early trades because she will probably outtrade you there.

VS

Malphite

Easy

He is fucked against you dodge is ult and just poke him with your q and he can do about nothing

VS

Riven

Hard

Pain in the ass you can win this matchup by poking her out but she can just all in you all the time if you don't play very careful and poke her out 

What do I need to do with VLAD ? Back to Top

In lane you normaly want to concentrate on farming until you are about level 6 and have 3145.png/3152.png .

If you think you can handel cs'ing and poking the enemy laner go ahead but you should only try to get q+e+aa  because this will proc thunderlord and vlad normaly loses early trades against the most champs so try to go force too much you willl be very easy kilable early.

After you have some levels and your spellvamp itemyou can start to push your enemy laner but don't forgett to place your wards, because you don't have an escape with vlad except for his w which only makes him not targatable and that isn't even for a long time so watch your map while pushing. When the enemy laner is under tower and you are save from ganks go ahead and start poking him with your q and e he won't be able to go in because of the minions BUT still be careful not to overextend in tower range and getting charmed after you poked the enemy.
When you start pushing the enemy always your vladimirtidesofblood.png, it stacks up to 4 times and when you have 4 stacks it does double the dmg than normal so STACK it you have your spellvamp items anyways so you'll heal the dmg taken from it up. By always pushing the enemy you'll gain lane controll and the enemy will probably lose some farm, furthermore you'll get dmg on the tower and you'll eventually be able to kill the tower.

In teamfights you want to get onto the carries and one shot them with your ult which isn't always possible but if you see a carrie alone feel free to ult them and go ham IF your teammates are near you to follow up you can stall fairly long with your 3157.png and your vladimirsanguinepool.png  if you are on the carries and used your combo use your vladimirsanguinepool.png to prevent the carries fromdoing dmg to you. While in your vladimirsanguinepool.png you'll do dmgand heal up a bit, additionally you'll slow them down thanks to 3116.png which makes it fairly easy for you team to catch up and kill the carrie with you. 
If you can't get onto a carrie just poke the enemy down with your vladimirtransfusion.pngand vladimirtidesofblood.png and remember to use your vladimirsanguinepool.png when the enemy tries to hit you with big cooldowns.

You think you will not win a teamfight with your team ?
No problem start splitt pushing by warding the side you want to splitt push on and telling your team what you want to do because otherwise they maybee won't see it comming and can't react with taking towers/baron when there are 3 people bot to get you.
It should be somewhat easy to fight 2v1 if you aren't behind or up against a heavy burst champ and fail to use your vladimirsanguinepool.png properly.

Okay that was my Guide I hope you guys like it and it helped if you have questions feel free to ask me :)
