so I was playing Vlad top against a singed. once i got a rod i was able to slow him enough to stay out of range. would he be able to 1v2 people at top well if the other team doesn't have a jungler? or will he just get rofl stomped on. or should i just get spell vamp quints?
also what type of runes do you guys use for him i was thinking magic pen reds, ap b level blues and health yellows (is percentage any good) with ap quints unless spell vamp works better

1)Why call Rylai's a Rod?
2)He's great top
3) Debatable, depends on matchups and how well you play him
4)I use spell vamp, I just don't see the extra 40 health worth is when spellvamps are better from around level 4 onward (but I do see a ton of people using AP)

Not really good against 1v2 lanes, especially early. He needs to harass an opponent out of the lane and regen all his health in the process - once you add another person to the equation it becomes increasingly more difficult.

You won't have to worry about 1v2s if the enemy team is smart. If they DO have 2 people in top lane, just play passive and farm under tower.
Vlad's certainly viable top. He's extremely annoying to try ganking because of his pool

1)cause I am to lazy to remember what it is called
2) after playin i agree
3) get tome and hp pot first item and you'll nuke em every time (play passively until level 4)
4) maybe a mix of spell vamp and ap? i spose it depends on who I'm facing is it a riven or a leblank

I've played as singed against vlad top... it was probably the worst time I have ever had in any lane thats the degree to which vlad beats singed
