Summoner Spells Back to Top

I don't really have to go into detail as to why you will run 4.png and 12.png in the top lane.  It is the most viable choice.

4.png Will give you an escape route since you don't really have a good one with vladimirsanguinepool.png and your movement speed is really low, caps out at 380 with tier 2 boots and no other movement buffs.



12.png Will give you the ability to get back to lane sooner as well as gank behind enemy champions if your team has proper vision in place.  Again really only way you can gank because Vlads movement speed is just so low.

14.png If you really want to win laning phase or you are playing against a champ with crazy sustain then run this someone like 36.png or 2.pngit is kind of hard to keep them low because they can heal back up pretty easy on abilities alone.  

New Runes Back to Top

Masteries Back to Top

This is focusing on doing as much damage as you can with magic pen. and since your new vladimirtidesofblood.png  can slow them at full charge you get to do a 2.5% increase in damage is something that you can't pass up.  I like the resolve tree because it helps you sustain in lane longer with your regen and your abilities, as long as you don't over extend you most likely won't die.

You want to max vladimirtransfusion.png first because of it being your main poke in laning phase and something that can't be blocked, especially with it's new ability when you get the resource bar full you get to do 100% more damage add that with your magic pen. trust me it will hurt.  Your goal is to poke with it when you can at full charge, try to time it when they are trying to last hit punishing them every time they go for it to eventually where they get left behind in CS.


vladimirsanguinepool.png You want to get this second and max it last because it is your only escape abilities and can dodge a lot of abilities if timed right.  You can dodge abilities like 238.png Ult if you pool as soon as he uses the ult.  He basically teleports to you and get punished for it losing a lot of his threat best counter pick in my opinion because you only need to get level 2 and you can already negate his threat to you at level six where most champs can't unless they have zhonya's.  You can dodge a lot of other abilities to like when 57.png snare when he tries to gank, pool when he is in motion to you and you won't get damaged or being locked in place and he used it so it will be on cooldown.  Can be the difference of you getting away or not. 



vladimirtidesofblood.png This is your second ability that you max and by far your most damaging one when max out and have some health built up the only down side is that it takes 10% of your life to reach max damage which can be a lot in the middle of a fight.  Only use this to when you know you will hit a champ with it or to help clear a wave works really well for both.  Just be careful being interrupted will cancel the charge nullifying a lot of the damage that you cold do. 


vladimirhemoplague.png Max this when you can obviously the only change is that it only increases 10% damage instead of 12% now but hey a damage increase in a damage increase.  It heals you better now to which is great you will want to use this in teamfights for sure.  In laning phase it can be deadly if you combine it with a full charge vladimirtidesofblood.png and vladimirtransfusion.png at full charge.  You are doing so much extra damage to them that as long as you are not behind you will either kill them or scare them out of lane with low life depending on the champ.  I like to use the ult in laning phase when they are half life because you can mostly kill them or at worst scare them out of lane with gives you free farm.

Items Back to Top

Starting Items

    Against a poke physical champ
    If you want to sustain better in lane
    If you are facing someone with heavy AP poke

Core Items

    You want to get as much magic pen. as you can for damage.
    Get one of them at least for the health regen and cooldown that they provide.

Situational Items

    You will chose your last couple items based on how the game is going if you need armor go zhonya or more MR or hell even more magic Pen.
    If you want more AP or AP and movement speed both can be good.
Start with items: Pick based on who you are fighting so that you can stay in lane as long as possible, laning phase is really important for Vlad.

Core: You need to get those first three items as soon as possible because it a lot of your damage with all the magic pen. that it gives you.  With those three items, runes, and masteries you have a 51% magic pen. and a burn slow that will do 4% damage based on their total life then add your ult vladimirhemoplague.png of a 10% increase it is a lot of damage. 
You want at least one of the health items that I suggest because they will give you the much needed health and CRD which is great for vlad and his passive vladimirpassive.png.

Situational:
Depending on how the game is going is what you choose from here, if you need more armor then 3157.png or MR then 3065.png or 3001.png  or if you are fighting a lot of MR resist then go 3135.png.  Feel like you are lacking AP then chose the 3089.png or 3285.png. Just depends on how your game is going thus far is what you should choose.

VS

Aatrox

Medium

He will be hard to fight in laning phase because of how he can heal your damage that you do but he only can kill you by going all in because you can sustain just as good as him and damage him at the same time. 

VS

Cho'Gath

Medium

It can be hard to lane against him if you can't dodge his abilities but if you can manage that you can win the laning phase.

VS

Ekko

Easy

This can be easy because most of the time they will go tank and just use his passive to do the damage which means he has to use two abilities just to get some stacks on you, take advantage of this and poke him so that he doesn't go in on you. 

VS

Gangplank

Medium

This one can be pretty easy if you have good game mechanics just hit the raisemorale.png before he parley.png or melees them and you will deny him farm  and damage.  Just poke him down and he will lose a lot of CS and experience, also build MR items just to stay in lane which makes him suffer in his damage.

VS

Malphite

Easy

This can be easy you just have to poke him down or make him farm under tower and he will use up all his mana pretty fast to get CS making it hard for him.  He will then stack MR which won't be useful against your 51% magic pen.

VS

Maokai

Hard

This one can be hard because of his sustain that he has and he scales really well.  Just poke when you can and farm he can't really kill you if you play safe unless he gets his jungler to help him. 

VS

Poppy

Hard

This one can be hard because she is a great tank and can take a lot of abuse making it hard to kill her.  Just deny her farm when you can and she will fall behind making her less useful in the team fighting part of the game. 

VS

Riven

Hard

This matchup is just hard overall because of all her abilities help her move around and chase too making it hard for you to deal with her.  Just farm safely so that she will over extend so that she can be ganked and you will be alright

VS

Rumble

Easy

This one is really easy because you are outside of his rumbleflamethrower.png range and his rumblegrenade.png is easy to dodge with the use of minions.  Just keep poking him down and you will deny him CS and exp and win the laning phase.

VS

Ryze

Easy

His range abilities are really short so as long as you can make use of that it will be easy to poke him down and win the lane.

VS

Singed

Easy

This is pretty easy as long as you don't chase him he can't kill you like ever.  Just poke him down when he is getting CS and he will lose to you badly.

VS

Trundle

Medium

Just play it safe and he won't be able to kill you at all because of your sustain is too good compared to his.  If you overextend he could kill you will all his abilities will either slow you down or speed him up.

Guide Back to Top

This is my first time making a guide so any useful information can be helpful to me for future and any suggestion that you have will be useful as well.  This is just my take on the new Vlad based on all the new items and changes to his kit.
