vitya331 says “A lot of people say Vladimir is not a very bad match up and it seems they are right, but personally for me its a perma ban i do not enjoy playing against him. He will overheal and poke you early game but after you get lost chapter he is not a strong threat just walk up to him and try to trade and use your E only after he wastes his W or if you are sure he will not dodge it.”

Peepers says “Your ult provides grevious wounds and getting a proxy angle isn't difficult into him. ”
Chikei says “he can avoid being hit by going into the floor, just delay your q and it'll be fine”
My Zoe Notes by Chikei | Zoe Player
sick204 says “Respect Vladimir's sustain and scaling potential with his abilities, especially his Q and passive. Use Yasuo's E to dodge Vladimir's abilities and minimize damage taken. Be cautious of Vladimir's all-ins and burst potential with his empowered Q and ultimate, especially when he has full stacks of his passive. Utilize W to block Vladimir's E in trades and team fights to reduce his damage output. Engage on Vladimir when his abilities are on cooldown or when he's low on health, as he relies on his cooldowns and resource management for sustain. Consider building items like Executioner's Calling or Mortal Reminder to reduce Vladimir's healing and mitigate his sustain.”

SkandalloTV says “Don't try too much to kill him. His sustain is too big and Irelia is mana hungry early game. Go Liandry's Torment first, anti-heal and cooldown runes. Just focus on farming and getting items.”
otaliz says “Be careful with his level 6 all-in. Buy Oblivion Orb if no one on your team is getting anti-healing. Play to scale and look for roaming opportunities.”
Foxirion says “Vladimir’s high sustained damage and healing can be a threat to Swain, as he can withstand Swain’s damage and quickly deal high damage.”
michaliis says “Go Dorans Blade or Shield. Annyoing with healing but rather then that an okay Skill Match up. All in him or he will heal back all the damage you traded with him. Dogde his R with Q3.”

Laimaudeja says “[I would use the First Strike page in this lane, and start Amplifying Tome.] You realistically won't be able to kill Vladimir in lane, and he will heavily outscale you later, so just try to farm up gold off of him with First Strike, and avoid trades otherwise. Pay attention to the bar below his health, as it grants him movement speed toward enemy Champions when it turns red and empowers his next suck to do significantly more damage.”

Yannou-Ari says “Flash - TP - Scaling HPs. Don't fall too low health in this lane or he will try to dive you with his pool and you have no counterplay against that. Poking him too hard is hard because of his sustain, and he can W your full combo. Play with your range to nullify his power.”

Tips Against Vladimir in Top Lane Tips Provided by MOBAFire Guide Authors

Raideru says “In early you want to trade with him as much as possible with your q and do short trades if possible, if his phase rush is ever down always e him in and then run him down even if he pools keep going after him, you beat him in all stages of the game”

Haxorr says “Vladimir is a really tough matchup for Jax as you will never be able to stun him if he uses his pool correctly, and he outdamages/outsustains you in almost all stages of the lane. Take DShield and Fleet Footwork rune setup and rush mercs -> ravenous hydra, similar to the other AP matchups in this extreme section. Any time he uses his q on a minion, you have a window to q, auto + w on him and walk away. If you are feeling confident/aggressive, you can bring ignite in this lane and go the PTA rune setup above instead. This gives you lots of early kill pressure if Vladimir messes up, but if he plays properly you will have a really rough time in lane.”

Shark of Void says “Take Electrocute and Ignite. Easy to kill, but he can outsustain you.”

Belle19 says “he has absolutely zero kill pressure if you arent brain damaged in lane, after lane if you split push you can straight up ignore him and destroy towers while he does meaningless damage, and in teamfights you can run him down really easily. Generally if a champion can both tank his initial spell rotation and has any form of chase potential, vladimir completely crumbles (i.e. nasus). IMO one of mundos easiest matchups, just keep in mind the champ is probably gonna be complete cancer for your teammates so be ready to carry”

procatking says “runes NO.2,4. are good for this matchup take ignite and D shield (look for one that fit your game-style).*skill matchup* he can Sanguine Pool(W) your W so bait it out or get close to him so he want be able to react to it. back from his empowered Q(it's when his "mana" bar is red). First back u have to buy EXECUTIONER'S CALLING. poke and pressure him before he gets 1-2 items. ”

Witchking of Angwar says “Ghost/tp. Conq Dont see much vlad top. He wins early because he out ranges, out sustains and out kites you. A kill at 6 is not guaranteed. You giga outscale him with liandries, riftmaker, spirit though. Good ult target in Team fights.”

MaesePerez says “You out sustain his damage while being tanky enough to not die to his all in, he scales well but so do you, he never beats you in side lane if you stack MR. Get antiheal and enjoy a free farm lane. If you W him early in team fights you can easily cc chain him and burst him quickly. ”
