@baineRPX: youre not going to kill a high hp, high ap vlad by building mr and hp, although you may survive him

@rainrainery: vlad may be the least squishy ap champ because of his bonus hp and awesome escape ability

@heathenscum: vlad is one of those champs with broken abilities, and all riot is willing to do is lower/raise ability ratios. In order to be fixed vlad would have to be remade. Also you forgot to point out his pool applies an effective aoe slow, and you got his e wrong. It's not useful


You mean his escape that destroys his health and doesn't actually let him escape? He moves at his normal speed while in the pool for 2 seconds, slows/snares carry through(exhaust). DoTs continue ticking, too (Brand/Cass/teemo/singed/fiddle's drain)... so it's a terrible escape in many cases, one that any other caster(Ez comes to mind) doesn't have.

Vlad is terribly squishy, hp=/= tanky, it's the truth. To get a decent HP return, you need to build straight AP(HP gives almost no AP). That leaves him incredibly vulnerable to madreds, or the dozen champion abilities that straight kill high HP. His high HP pool and mediocre(now) regen from spells is to allow him to use abilities.

Truthfully, he's just as squishy as any other AP mid without their range, early laning power, late game scaling, or team wide utility.
