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

Fuzzmonkey says “From what I've experienced this is quite an easy match up. Always chain first so that if he pools it'll still root him and you can apply the rest of your combo when he comes up. Don't let him harass you with his enhanced passive damage (always back off when he has a full red bar). Always take ignite against Vladimir.”

Yeager says “This is a really good matchup for cassio. He has super high cooldowns early game so he can't take extended trades with you. If you ever hit noxious blast, just run him down with twin fangs. Back off when he's about to get the empowered Q as it deals a lot of damage. You need morello early to counter his healing. ”

eiensiei says “I'll poke him with E and go for passive procs when his second bar is low (so his Q heals less and deals less damage). Despite the constant poke, he's still hard to kill due to his sustain, and I won't bother using my R simply because I've landed a Q without baiting out his W first (28s CD lvl 1). I'll stay behind minions when he's charging his E - also after level 6 if I'm low and I see him charging his E just barely in range of me (and know he has flash + R up), it's a good idea to flash away preemptively. He's a late game monster and I definitely need Zhonya's for his R. Also Morello to somewhat diminish his healing (I'll ask my AD to build Executioner's if he hasn't already).”

Drewmatth Taliyah says “Ring + 2 pots if you gonna stay away from his big Q, Corrupting otherwise. His Sustain is one of the best in the game so calculate how you are going to damage him, when he is going to heal and when you go for the kill and how. Do not waste mana in vain just for him to heal back up in the next 30-60 seconds. Winnable matchup early-mid game if you manage to hit your W or you get some jungler ganks. Roam / use minion demat if you think you aren't gonna win much on lane. NEVER get hit by a full charged Q just to get a minion (cannon might work, but not small minions). When you are below 50% hp and he's charging his E and his Q is near full bar he prepares to flash on you (combo is E(charge)->flash->release E->Q). This combo works at all levels and combined with ult it can be deadly. Try to force a W out of him without using your WE (by getting full Q's on him). If he plays with Phase Rush you have to consider his movement speed burst once he gets close to you. He will not be able to get that movement speed burst and drill you down if you keep your distance ! (Q from outside his E or Q range). Go for WEQ full combo and ignite only when you know you can seal the deal (or at least proc a W for a gank from your jungler in the next 10-15 seconds). His W also damages him so that's decent, but remember his sustain is strong so don't waste all mana randomly. Biscuits might also be useful.”

Yeager says “He has high cooldowns early game so you can shove him in with no problems. Just watch out for his lvl 6 if he has ignite, and base when you are low hp. ”

Fuzzmonkey says “Bit more of a tricky match up since he has his W to pool the majority of your abilities. Try baiting this out before deciding to burst him. Also be careful of his E-W flash combo.”

LunarVortex says “Vladimir is generally not a huge problem for you in lane, however, he will outscale you and there's not a whole lot you can do about it. Try to abuse his high W cooldown with your jungler and then take objectives together to close out the game quickly. Buy an early Oblivion Orb.”

Avucado says “This matchup is usually stomp or get stomped. Take E and play very aggressive early on. Look for an E->flash ignite play to get ahead or the lane will hard post 6, make sure not to do it when pool is up. Take hexdrinker if he gets ahead.”

Ambitieux says “Vlad honestly is not as scary as everyone turns him out to be, unless you yourself make him scary. Do NOT let this guy free farm. Treat him like a melee ad player and take almost every trade possible, be autoing him early game with q's your healing will beat his in lane. And best part if you have your mana item you will double his damage due to your ability output compared to his because of the CD difference. When he has passive Q More than likely he will look to instantly Q you for the extra poke, try to save your e for this moment. The more you make him pool the more you are winning lane. And remember Ignite is your best friends in this matchup, you can almost guarentee all ins at lvl 4, 6-11. Due to the fact if you have him at 60-70% hp. You land a nice charm into ult q w ignite. He will be dead if he pools. Do NOT be afraid of him in lane.”

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

I Am Goliath says “Vlad is pretty safe but this lane should be in your favor, I like to get an early executioners calling in this matchup and play really agressive early because vlad sucks early game, a lot of vlads will try to use their empowered Q on you and walk up for that, so that's when you want to go for E's on him, you can tell when he gets empowered Q by the bar below his health bar when it turns yellow that means it's close and then it will turn red is when he has his empowered Q so it's fairly easy to predict. You want to try to get him to use his pool before you use your ultimate in this matchup since it's extremely easy to pool, you can usually bait out his pool with your E and if he doesn't pool your E then he will have to pool shortly after because he will take a ton of damage. Basically punish this matchup early, vlad scales really well into teamfights and will most likely do more then you so splitpushing is also a great option here.”

ObiW says “Buy Executioner's Call and rush MR against him. Its farm lane.”

PH45 says “Sustain is good in this lane, get some mr and vamp scepter and just farm up and you can kill him later on. You have to bait his pool though or he will just dodge your stun with it. While laning try to avoid getting hit by his strong Q poke since it deals quite hefty amount of damage. Stay behind minions so his E can't hit you.”
Drake6401 says “Just a big coward like all ranged top laners. Executioners Calling is a must rush item in this lane. Sustain start to stay long enough to get the gold for it. use E-Q-E combos to heal up. When you have enough gold, back when it's suitable to do so and buy Executioners Calling above all else. Other than that, this is a standard ranged laner but more annoying since he has sustain and no mana... sound familar?...hmmm. Trade whenever you can when E is up. Vladimir cannot buy a reliable grievous wounds item this early so it's an item power spike for you. Also I do not recommend tower diving him alone. His W lets him pool under ground and makes it almost impossible to dive him unless you can bait it out. even then, his burst healing is risky. ”

Stinkee says “He's going to spam Q's on you nonstop. When he gets his empowered Q, run away. Try not to ult him or use your Q on him until he uses his pool. You can slow him with your E right before he pools to slow his pool down. Rush Abyssal Mask, once you get it, the matchup will become much easier. Vladimir is very vulnerable to ganks so freezing is a good way to setup ganks for your jungler.”
Rhoku says “TL;DR - BORING MATCHUP WHERE NOBODY WINS. DON’T TAKE FREE POKE. IF YOU ARE GONNA TRADE, MAKE SURE TO DUMPSTER HIM IN IT. PHASE RUSH IS RECOMMENDED BUT CONQUEROR IS OKAY. GHOST IS GREAT. Vladimir isn’t a difficult matchup similar to a strong lane bully per se. It is just that it is very difficult to generate a lead against a competent Vladimir. He has a frightening lategame and the sustain in lane to get there. You have to get early sustain with Dshield and etc in order to match his healing. Try not to take stupid trades. He is free food when he does not have pool but don’t overextend and take free damage after he uses it to get away. The health cost of pool is high enough to be punishing enough on its own. Just make sure you stomp him in trades, as his sustain is quite annoying. Executioner’s is a must buy into this lane, so if he ever gets in a bad enough position where you can punish him, he is most likely dead. I’d actually go for Swifties in this lane if I'm running Conqueror as he mostly relies on slows from his E and Pool to kite you. But this is only a consideration if you are a good player AND if noone else on the enemy team requires a specific type of boots to counter them. Vladimir does not have enough damage to beat you in an all in. Even with his ultimate. Conqueror is not bad but Phase Rush is a good choice as it lets you stick to him through his annoying pool slow. If all else fails, just try to make sure you keep up in cs and dont feed him. He can 1v9 once he gets his items. As with most Ranged matchups, Stridebreaker is great.”
ForgottenProject says “Now this is some real Cancer right here boys. You pretty much cant kill him in lane unless he somehow messes up and he will out-scale you in team fighting HARD. [1]Corrupting Potions to Lane along with some Magic Resist in your runes. [2]Executioner's Calling After Tiamat ALWAYS. [3]Walk away from him if he gets his Empowered Q, indicated by his Bar turning Red. [4]Poke him but not at the cost of your own HP because he has ways to out-heal you and kill you if you're low. [5]You can only kill him by forcing him to use Pool and then running him down while he's over-extended without it. (It's a 25 Second CD) [6]Parry Empowered Q in an all-in. ”

Kaizin says “Treat this like any other ranged matchup, avoid taking negative trades, use the brushes to avoid auto attacks. Definitely avoid letting Vlad use his empowered Q on you as it deals a lot of damage and gives him a huge heal and the heal is based on his missing health.”
BoilTheOil says “You can either go Fleet or Conqueror, his poke isn't that bad, but you might need the movement speed from Fleet. Make sure you don't walk up when he gets his Q stacked up because it does a shit ton of damage. Farm until you get Stridebreaker. He can't really do anything to you after you get Stridebreaker and anti heal, just use it on him off cooldown. He also gets a good amount of health but hardly any armor so your Q and R destroy him. You are usually more useful in teamfights than he is.”

Sovereign Kitten says “We sometimes take Doran's Shield into this match-up to match his sustain with grasp of the undying. However, this is based on personal preference. You should be working your way into a more damage oriented build around mid game. The simple way to deal with Vladimir is to watch his energy bar. If he is glowing red, back off and let him use it on a minion, as you don't wanna take the increased damage from his empowered (Q). Once he has used it, you can go in and try to poke him out with your (Q) or possibly your (E) auto attack, it may seem boring, and you may miss CS, but you'll go even or win because of it. ”
