Summoner Spells Back to Top

Summoner Spells.png



I'm gonna talk about each summoner spell i have seen people using on Vladimir and give my opinion on them , call this the "Summoner Spells Rant" 

4.png Always take this , it helps you catch the enemy or escape.
14.png This spell is good if you want to get an early kill and if you're confident on your abilities and  you think your team can handle their lanes since if you take this over teleport you wont be able to TP on their lanes to help them when they get 5 man ganked by all the LCS teams.
12.png This is what i usually take as my secondary spell, it allows me to TP in lane if i have a hard time and TP on other lanes to help my team.
6.png I dont like this spell anymore after the boot enchants were removed. It gives a boost of 27% movement speed .. which is not that great to be honest with distortion you could manage to get 40% movement speed but now ... its a no , at least for me. 
1.png This is the equivalent of a QSS , you can take this if you want against a heavy CC lane but i would personally still go for TP / Ignite.
13.png The guy that used this got reported.
21.png It could work against some high burst champion or if you know you're gonna just loose the lane.
7.png Same as barrier.
17.png R.I.P Dominion
11.png Take this if you really wanna play Vladimir Jungle. He's really fun , but dont do it in ranked only if you're some kind of jungle god that can play anything in the jungle.

Items Back to Top

Starting Items

    Against champions with Skillshots
    Standard Start
    This is a decent start too and you get some ap too.
    Take this if you're going jungle.

Core Items

    This are your core items. Hextech Protobelt-01 offers you a small dash , hp , ap + cdr exactly what you need. Rylai gives you HP , AP and a slow its perfect. Ionian boots are good cause... CDR
    Pick one of these if you're going jungle.

Situational Items

    This is one of the main builds i use , you get a lot of health and you are tanky too.
    Full Damage Build
    This is a tankier build for vladimir , you get a lot of regen so you wont kill yourself spamming your E.
    Jungle Vladimir build example. Adjust it as you wish.
The Blood Lord.png
The builds are in no specific order , build them in what order you want , mix builds if you really need. Everything is situational you will never have 20 games where you will have to build the exact same build in the exact same order over and over again. I know this is supposed to be a guide but the game is very situational so the builds are just examples so you can make an idea on what works on vlad. I will update this every patch if needed.


Now i'm gonna talk about the items 


Starting Items : 

  • 1054.png I usually just go for Dorans Shield. It gives nice early sustain and it helps you against Auto Attack champions.
  • 1001.png Take this if you're against a champion that has a lot of skillshots it will help you dodge them.
  • 1028.png This item is decent , i feel myself buying it sometimes against some afk farming for 20 minutes matchups since this builds into Rylai , Protobelt and Spirit Visage.

Early-Mid-Late Items : 

  • 3158.png These boots are great it gives you 10% CDR and 10% CDR on your Summoner Spells they work great with Teleport and the Insight mastery.
  • 3020.png Buy these boots if you stomp your lane , you dont want to loose damage.
  • 3111.pngGet these boots if you're going the heavy tank focused Vlad build.
  • 3152.png This item has the perfect stats for vladimir : Health , Ability Power , Cooldown Reduction + A Small dash that also deals damage. Its a core item on Vladimir.
  • 3116.png Health , Ability Power and a slow passive. This item makes Vladimir very "sticky" , allowing you to catch up to your enemies once you hit your Q / E.
  • 3135.png Sometimes you will face a laner that rushes a Spirit Visage / Mercs or something like that .. well once he does that you kinda lost your power against him.
  • 3157.png Great item if you're not behind , it allows you to survive even more in teamfights and can save your elo.
  • 3742.png I really like this item on Vladimir. HP(and some AP since.. passive) , Armor + a movement speed passive.
  • 3065.png This is a good item for Vladimir and the item passive is amazing.
  • 3001.png This is a good item if you want to boost your damage , i usually build this when i go for a heavy damage build.
  • 3089.png A very good item , you can replace Dead Man's Plate with this if you want want more damage + you'll get some HP too. 
  • 3083.png  Warmong is decent on Vladimir now. You get HP , CDR + health regen passive. Take it only when you need high regen or you use my tank vlad build.

VS

Aatrox

Medium

Starting Items : 1054.png2003.png

About the matchup : Try to get as much cs as possible since this guy is kinda hard to take down , he has sustain just like you and he's gonna push your lane 24/7 since he needs to hit something to sustain.If he uses aatroxQ.png on you try to vladimirsanguinepool.png out.

Watch out if he's gonna buy 3144.png since he can catch you very easy with that item combined with aatroxE.png

VS

Ahri

Medium

Starting Items : 1001.png2003.png

About the matchup : Ahris main damage ability and cc ability are a skillshot so starting boots and running movment speed quints is a good idea since it helps you dodge them .You should get a 3001.png or a 3065.png

Keep your lane warded.

VS

Akali

Medium

Starting Items : 1054.png2003.png

About the matchup : You can abuse her early game since she cant jump on you with her akalishadowdance.png.When he gets level 6 she's gonna be a pain in the a*s so you should focus on poking and csing early game.

Buy 2043.png for her akalismokebomb.png

VS

Annie

Medium

Starting Items : 1054.png2003.png
About this matchup : Focus on csing , watch for her stun , roam , ward your lane since if you get ganked you will probably die. Get a 3001.png or a 3065.png.

VS

Cho'Gath

Hard

Starting Items : 1001.png2003.png
About this matchup : He can sustain for days , silence you , execute you. Focus on csing and ask for ganks since you cant kill this guy without them.Take 12.png and try to help other lanes or teleport to lane if you f*ck up.

VS

Darius

Hard

Starting Items : 1001.png / 1054.png + 2003.png
About this matchup : Another hard matchup where you should focus on csing. Take 12.png and ask for ganks since  it will be kinda hard to kill this guy if he knows what he's doing.If you see him geting close to you he's probably gonna dariusaxegrabcone.png you and you will be forced to use your flash in the good case .. most of the time you will just die.

VS

Diana

Medium

Starting Items : 1054.png2003.png
About this matchup : Pre 6 you have an advantage on her : your range. You will be able to poke and zone her. Ward your lane since you dont want to get ganked and die. At level  6 she can be a problem so you should NOT let her get ahead , make her loose cs , force her to stay under tower , freeze the lane in such way that she cant cs.

VS

Dr. Mundo

Medium

Starting Items : 1054.png2003.png
About this matchup : Focus on csing, if he rushes a 3065.png get a 3135.png since it will be kinda hard to damage him. Ward your lane.

VS

Ekko

Medium

Starting Items : 1001.png / 1054.png & 2003.png

About this matchup : Annoying lane , try to dont get stunned since he will burn you down.Get a 3001.png or a 3065.png and ward your lane.

VS

Fiora

Hard

Starting Items : 1054.png2003.png
About this matchup : Mobility , true damage , heal , crit , slow and she can also deny your damage.Get 12.png and ask for ganks.

VS

Galio

Hard

Starting Items : 1001.png2003.png
About this matchup : He's basically the anti-mage of league of legends , he is gonna build magic resist and still beat you. Ask for ganks and try to get some magic resist too ( 3001.png / 3065.png

VS

Gangplank

Easy

Starting Items : 1054.png2003.png
About this matchup : Gangplank is a melee champion , the only ability that makes him "ranged" is his Q  parley.png but that wont deal a lot of damage early compared to his raisemorale.png.
You should just cs / poke him down and watch for his raisemorale.png + parley.png combo.

Ward your lane.

VS

Garen

Easy

Starting Items : 1001.png2003.png
About this matchup : A really easy matchup in my opinion , he's a melee champion so you can just punish him every time he tries to cs.
When he tries to garenslash3.png you just vladimirsanguinepool.png out.

Ward your lane.

VS

Gnar

Medium

Starting Items : 1054.png2003.png
About this matchup : This guy is cancerous , try to focus on csing since you wont be able to catch him in his mini-gnar form.Take 12.png and try to help other lanes.

VS

Illaoi

Easy

Starting Items : 1001.png / 1054.png & 2003.png
About this matchup : Dodge her Q and E and you will be fine.If she rushes 3065.png and 3111.png buy a 3135.png.

VS

Irelia

Hard

Starting Items : 1054.png2003.png
About this matchup : At level 1 try to Q her and hit her with your Auto Attacks since she's meele and she will probably start with her E. Think twice before trying to poke her because she can Q a low minion that's close to you then Q you or wait for you to poke her enough so she can stun you.Take12.png and play the csing game , try to get ahead by csing.And try to 12.png to other lanes if needed.

VS

Jax

Hard

Starting Items : 1054.png2003.png
About this matchup : Try to harass him at level 1 because once he gets his Q  W and E he can kill you. When he tries to stun you should pool out but you should watch out since his E cooldown is lower than your pool cooldown.

VS

Jayce

Medium

Starting Items : 1001.png / 1054.png &2003.png
About this matchup : Early he can win the trades so you should focus on trying to get as much cs as possible.A early 3191.png is usefull.

Try to dodge his Q.

VS

Kayle

Hard

Starting Items : 1054.png2003.png
About this matchup : I consider this matchup hard post 6 since she can just ult and deny your damage and she can shred your magic resist and kill you like you're nothing but paper.Take 12.png and focus on csing.

VS

Kennen

Medium

Starting Items : 1001.png/1054.png & 2003.png
About this matchup : He is very annoying , he's fast , he has CC and way too much damage. Focus on csing and get some mr items like 3001.png and 3065.png also take 12.png.

VS

LeBlanc

Hard

Starting Items : 1054.png 2003.png
About this matchup : Hug the tower , she's a high mobility mage with insane burst.Focus on csing , i dont know how to really deal with matcup. Take 12.png since you will probably be forced to back and you will need to TP back to lane if you dont want to loose a lot of cs.

VS

Lee Sin

Hard

Starting Items : 1054.png2003.png
About this matchup : If he maxes his W first you will loose this match-up. Hug the tower and try to avoid taking damage.Focus on csing under your tower and if you have a jungler that has CC ask him for ganks also ward your lane and take 12.png.

VS

Lissandra

Medium

Starting Items : 1001.png2003.png
About this matchup : Her main damage ability is a skillshot so it shouldn't be too hard to win your lane. At level 1 try to Q and AA her so she looses hp , if she gets close to you with her E use your pool and run away.Take 14.png / 12.png depending on your preference.

VS

Malphite

Hard

Starting Items : 1054.png2003.png
About this matchup : There are people that say "Vladimir vs Malphite is very easy man he builds mainly armor and you can outsustain and poke him in lane ".Yeah the laning phase is easy against him but once he hits level 6 it's impossible to do anything against him. 

Try to fight him ?  ufslash.png
Jungler Ganks ? ufslash.png 
His jungler ganks ? ufslash.png
You're afk ? ufslash.png
Try to take advantage of his early game and keep your lane warded.

VS

Maokai

Easy

Starting Items ; 1054.png2003.png
About this matchup : Take advantage of his early levels and you should be fine. WARD YOUR LANE , really this guy can CC you into oblivion while his jungler just hits you.

VS

Mordekaiser

Medium

Starting Items : 1001.png2003.png
About this matchup :  The reason i go boots here instead of dorans shield is because mordekaiser has no mobility meaning that if you go boots you will make him tilt because he wont be able to catch you.

This guy is kinda hard to take down since he has his W heal and his shield that can deny  your damage. Focus on csing and poking him when his shield is down.

VS

Nasus

Hard

Starting Items : 1054.png / 1001.png &2003.png
About this matchup : Ok this guy is annoying , his slow is annoying he can stack damage and one shot you while building tank.
He scales better than you so i suggest going for 6.png4.png and get an early 3191.png. Also you can consider going for 3009.png.

VS

Nautilus

Medium

Starting Items : 1054.png2003.png
About this matchup : This guy is the CC god , he's a tank so he will probably build a 3065.png against you and you know what time it is ? Yeah you're right it's time for  3135.png.

Ward your lane.

VS

Pantheon

Medium

Starting Items : 1054.png2003.png
About this matchup : Get an early 3191.png it helps a lot.Pantheon is really strong early game and he will probably run 14.png4.png so you should be really carefull since he will probably stun E - Q - IGNITE you and you will be dead.Ward your lane.

VS

Poppy

Easy

Starting Items : 1054.png2003.png
About this matchup : Poke , poke , poke , poke and poke again , she cant do anything against you if she cant get close.

VS

Renekton

Medium

Starting Items : 1054.png2003.png
About this matchup : Insane early damage so you should watch out early.Stay away from him so he has to use his both dashes to reach you. Focus on csing and ask for ganks if needed.

VS

Rengar

Easy

Starting Items : 1054.png2003.png
About this matchup : Watch out if he has 5 stacks and dont be greedy , dont kill yourself so you can get a wave of minions and dont get baited.

VS

Riven

Hard

Starting Items : 1054.png2003.png
About this matchup : A good Riven player will make your lane a nightmare.Your advantage in lane is that you have sustain , try to bait her shield and poke her and try to stay NEAR TO YOUR TOWER , if you're too close to your tower she will proably try to all in you.
Try to keep your lane warded too.And dont underestimate her level 6 she can kill you with one combo if you're below 70-60% hp.

VS

Rumble

Medium

- Need to play some games against this matchup but i rate this a medium match-up from my rumble knowledge -

VS

Shen

Easy

Starting Items : 1054.png2003.png
About this matchup : Poke him he cant do anything to stop you , just Q - Q - Q - Q untill he leaves lane. 
The only way he can kill you is if he taunts you and you get ganked.

VS

Singed

Easy

Starting Items : 1054.png2003.png
About this matchup : Dont chase him when he has his poison up. 
If he proxy farms call your jungler , easy kill.

VS

Sion

Medium

Starting Items : 1001.png2003.png
About this matchup : This guy is tanky and he gets tankier the more he farms so you should zone him.
Keep your lane warded since he has good engage with his ult.

VS

Teemo

Easy

Starting Items : 1054.png2003.png
About this matchup : He has a blind , pointless against you since you dont AA a lot.
You can sustain , just abuse him and you won your lane.

VS

Tryndamere

Medium

Starting Items : 1054.png2003.png
About this matchup : This matchup is actually really easy early game , you just Q him over and over again but once he hits level 6 and buys a 3144.png it gets kinda hard.

Late game you wont be able to splitpush against this guy , he's the god of splitpushing.His DPS will higher and you will loose a 1 v 1 against him. 

VS

Volibear

Medium

Starting Items : 1054.png2003.png
About this matchup : The problem with this guy is that he's tanky , he will probably rush a 3065.png  and he will get tanky + he will increase his passive regen so you will be forced to get a 3135.png
He's able to kill you , so you should focus on csing.Take 12.png and ask for ganks if you have problems in lane.

Tanky Vlad Back to Top

Well , some of you may wonder why am i building Vladimir this way ?
The reason is that i enjoy soaking up damage and it also allows me to stay longer in teamfights but it's all my preference.
