Vladimir, the Crimson Reaper


Vladimir is an ability power caster who uses his blood to cast spells.  He is naturally tanky and is a great team fighting caster because he provides a lot of area of effect damage and can sustain well in lane or in fights.  He can be played in the top or mid lane.

The best counters for vlad are champions who can out sustain him  like a Fiddlesticks, Warwick, or Swain.  Crowd control hurts him as he does not have any of his own.  There are few players who truly know how to play Vladimir, and you can take advantage of this by scaring them into using his Sanguine pool, and this will deplete his health  and having to waste pots or try and heal back up on minions rather than using Transfusion as a harrass.  Try to burst him down quickly in team fights because if you let him spam his abilities he will be doing strong area of effect to your entire team, and be healing back up the entire time.  

- He converts health into ability power and ability power into health, so naturally he gets very tanky for an ability power mage


- He has so much sustain and is a big lane bully


- His ultimate Hemoplague helps his entire team out, and he offers other strong area of effect damage


- Ability power scales amazing on him, and his solo or team fighting ability is very strong.  


- Sanguine Pool allows him to tower dive enemies who are low and only take one or two tower shots

- Vlad is a high skill champion and difficult to master


- Can be shut down with a slight advantage in lane, especially since he has a weak mid game


- Must be farmed or have a lot of kills to be effective


- He has no crowd control other than a small slow from his Sanguine Pool
