Is it possible to add more recognizable sounds to his Q and R?

The visuals for these spells are very quick. So in a team fight it feels like Vladimir sneaks his spells in during a team fight and it is very difficult to realize it until you see the large red puddle from Sanguine Pool.

What do you guys think?

Maybe add like a rip sound or just up the volume a little bit.
Anything to make it easier to realize what is occurring.

EDIT: Also his spells all seem to have a similar "exhale" sound which is a little tedious.

It just feels like you aren't getting any feedback when you are fighting him.

We're definitely always looking for ways we can add to gameplay. Are other people having a similar experience with his audio feedback?

I haven't noticed sound effects on Vlad's skills, also when he comes out of SP he still is invulnerable for about a second. I don't know if that's just a bug or how it is.

I think his ultimate should have a goopey/liquidy sound (like dropping something in a big bucket of water) to it to make it different that the rest of his skill set. You really want to know when it's cast on you.

Yeah i think his sounds effects are lack luster and his ultimate sound alot like CAWCAWCAWCAW from fidle, maybe changing them to give a more unique feeling.

Great feedback all! We'll revisit his stuff to try and address your issues. Right now we are looking into a new hit sounds for 'q' and and change in volume balance for the ult.

I feel his Tides of Blood has the worst overall FX. It looks like he just did his normal auto-attack to everything around him, and his normal auto-attack is a dark, thin, short red line. Something meater, maybe a wave of blood expanding out from him.

OMG thank you! The sound of Vlad casting transfusion every 2 seconds is one of the most annoying things in LoL right now.
