I had Mundo and Vlad in a side lane just the other night, playing as Garen with Corki.

That was a bloodbath. Ganking Vlad in mid is just a matter of silence/DEMACIAAA, while he pools through Judgement, as always.

I'm confused. Did you do well in the side-lane or did you do poorly?

The laning guide is more oriented toward solo lanes, so I can see how Vlad going with someone as early-game strong as Mundo could be a problem. I might look into adding more about side-lane Vlad. He's just such a common mid I didn't think it warranted it.

14% extra damage, not 20% at any level

I cast, NECROMANCY! /sigh

Amazing though how well written this guide was back then and how much truth it holds now even with the "buffed" vlad. People are too busy crying about him rather than taking simple steps to improve their own play and beat him.

Even though this is a little old, Vladimir himself hasn't been changed from this guide's inception point.

People need to read this.

It doesn't count as necroing because its on the guide list.

>_>

In any case, more people should read this, seeing as how the anti-Vlad sentiment is rising up again.

Nice guide. For a noob like me, this is very helpful. I am learning Tristana at the moment, and met Vlad mid yesterday. After reading this thread, I now know that Explosive shot can really mess him up. Time to be more aggressive!

.- . Recently I've been seeing Vlad going Ionian Boot and Spirit Visage a fair bit. He's not terribly lethal, but DAAAAMN is he annoying.

You'd almost catch him, lolpool away, then by the time you catch up, he'd have pool AGAIN.

Very annoying, seriously.

I love playing Vlad, mostly cause he looks cool and I love to harras but its def true. A lot of times it seems like I can push ppl out of mid and xp deny very early because they just don't realize how long a refresh time his q has at low levels. And honestly there is no reason that should happen... Stuns are def Vlad's worse enemy..

Would Veigar be one of the champions who are capable of punishing Vlad? He could punish Vlad hard with his Event Horizon + Dark Matter combo at early/mid game (it has superior range), and later on Vlad can always be killed with a single cast of ult.
