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

Yamikaze says “Ignite and start E. He has long cooldowns until he gets some cdr. Just go ham in lane and play agressive when you have vision. He has no way to respond to your damage output with his CD's. He needs to scale before he becomes a threat, so this lane is in your favor if played correct. ”
[Season 10] Yamikaze & Yeager's Challenger Yasuo Guide by Yamikaze | Yasuo Player
iZianni says “If he takes ignite you lose to the all in and cant one shot him because of his pool. Look to pressure his early game by taking advantage of the jungle match up, once he hits critical mass with ignite pressure you'll need to respect his nimbus cloak abuse. If he uses pool at all, you'll want to murder him.”
Zianni's Challenger Syndra Guide by iZianni | Syndra Player
Polarshift says “He shouldn't be able to get close to you, just stay out his empowered Q flash range after level 6 and you should be alright. You definitely have the upper hand in this matchup, you can poke him through the wave. When he tries to get close to you, you just root him and overload to run away while he loses HP for using abilities.”
Yeager says “Easy laning phase and you can zone him pretty well with your ball so the only way he can get within range is by using flash. Get morellonomicon to counter his healing and keep your distance, especially when his empowered q is coming up. He's a monster lategame, so time his flash and play around it. ”
Yeager's Master Orianna guide by Yeager | Orianna Player
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.”

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).”
[10.19] eiensiei's guide to Lux | Mid by eiensiei | Lux Player
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. ”
Yeager's Master Cassiopeia Guide by Yeager | Cassiopeia Player
Yeager says “Laning phase is really easy but he outscales you hard later on. Actually he outscales every champ bg =) His waveclear sucks early on, so you can shove him in and poke him under turret. Get morellonomicon second item to counter his healing. Keep your distance when his empowered Q is about to come up. RESPECT his damage when he's level 6 and have flash + ignite up. It's really difficult to counter vlad in lategame. You HAVE TO time his flash cooldowns and play around that. If he ever manages to close the distance, your team is dead. ”
Yeager's Master Zoe Guide by Yeager | Zoe Player
Sylvan Lore says “Even though Orianna is a great pick into Vlad imo, things can still fall apart very easily. He has low range, but high damage. If he gets on and has all of his abilities up, he definitely has the ability to kill you. In landing phase you should be able to bully him, but make sure you commit to what you decide. If you only bully him a little, he will just heal your damage and you will lose mana. Either bully a lot and look to zone, or don't bully at all until you get more items. Once you have a mana item, you can rush a Morellonomicon to destroy his healing. You can also just finish your mana item and play safe. Recommend: Barrier and Dmg Build Note: if nobody on your team has ignite, it is important for you to take it so in late game teamfights he can be ignited. ”

xXkillercrackXx says “vladimir has around the same range as you, but has a ton more sustain. Avoid trading with vlad and try to passively farm up. Call for ganks early as he has no real way to escape it bar using his very long cooldown W. Try and bait him to use his W before using your gold card on him.”

sweodigaming says “Can be annoying, but he will probably build toward spirit visage for the heal, so better build Liandry's Torment or Void staff. He will be op late game, so try to bully him in lane. Keep in mind that he as excellent sustain though. ”

CaptianMike says “Vladimir is tricky because he also is a late-game scaling mage. He contributes to team fights as much as you do! He can also dodge your ultimate with his W. You might be able to kill him pre-6 if you manage to land your Q just on him numerous times. This is very important and can totally shut down Vladimir. If he is fed, he can tower dive you because he is very fast. Skill oriented match-up. ***Remind your ADC to get executioners calling***”

Twitch.Tv-LimitBreaker88 says “You are superior in lane and in late. he can't do anything against your push and range. Just keep pushing and stay at max range and he will not touch you a single time. Only be carefull about his Flashcombo. he can 70>0 you with ignite. You can also cancel his E with your R but usually he will pool so not reliable.”

Phrxshn says “You will have to make trades early game and stick on Vladimir. Juke or kite out his TIdes of Blood. Avoid fighting Vladimir while he has Bloodthrist(Q) passive or he will able to heal. Dodge or juke out his Hemoplague and he will lose majority of his damage. (Outscaling Edge: Vladimir) (Sustained 1v1 Trades: Even) (Recommended Items: Morello's, Rylai's Scepter)”

crabbix says “You're a poke mage, his entire kit is built around sustaining and all-in. I usually dodge these games. If you have to play it, rush morellonomicon and try to deny farm as much as possible.”
fwii says “Avoid his empowered Q poke. Look for trades whenever possible. Start Corrupting Potion for sustain. ”
Scyrine says “Sometimes you'll find a really good vlad and other times you won't. Just play against his heal and whenever he has red bar disengage and then re-engage after. Usually LVL 6 you can outdamage him but just be careful if he runs under turret because that's usually what he does. Rush Morellos after hextech if you're getting destroyed. ”

FalleN3 says “Vladimir is a nuisance champion to play against, I really dislike him. Ignite is a decent summoner spell to take against him as it will reduce his ability to sustain in fights. His early game is very weak but this does not mean he cant harass you much and sustain himself. If he plays passive you will never be able to kill him and overextending will likely get you ganked. By the time you get stronger and able to deal with him he will have some items himself which will likely begin with MR. Look for kills and picks in other lanes and the jungle as he will be next to impossible to kill without jungler help and CC.”

Dr Eggmund says “Skill Matchup (duh) all comes down to pressure and who gets the first kill. But you read this guide so you're obviously the better Vlad player. Also remember just like yourself that Vlad will get strong late game so try and pressure him to make sure he is behind in farm as much as possible.”

Glasletter says “Build Morello. He'll have to pool so often he won't be able to do anything else.”
xAsuta says “He can avoid your all in and heals a lot. Buy Hexdringer for MR and AD or build Executioner calling so he can't heal. Maybe rush Mercs and don't let him reaches late game because of his solo carry potential. ”

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.”
[10.19] THE ULTIMATE SYNDRA GUIDE! - Always win lane 100% by Fuzzmonkey | Syndra Player
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.”

AP WormMaW Mid says “Vladimir is headache for many midlaners. Main reason is that he has no mana pool and his health sustain is quite good even in early levels. That will most likely cause, that you will run out of mana in lane, before you will have chance to kill him. That is why he was picked quite often in midlane expecially during later phases of last season. As AP Kogmaw though, you have really good kill potential on him, if you use your W in trades. Again rush some MR (Negatron) and abuse your range. When you get your magic penetration (boots and haunting guise), then you should be able to even win face-to-face trades against him, due to high % damage of your W, which will shred his high health pool.”

Yuki H. says “Wow, so much fun. Champion with no mana pool, sustain, and a cheap power spike? Fantastic. He also has an ability which makes him invulnerable for a few seconds which sucks to hear as a Zed. Just avoid his empowered Q's and try to bait out his pool before asking for a gank.”

Impossible2Gank says “A good Vlad will be able to bully you out of lane with ease while you are unable to properly farm as well as outscale you. Stay back and box up, only going in if you manage to wittle him down low enough otherwise just wait for ganks.”

Hullos says “The same reasons as Kass but even harder to punish. His roams are not as good as Kass but his damage output is much grater of a threat through out the game. You just have to be the better player in every way this match up.”
ShadowSlayerMain says “Stay defensive so he can't Life Steal on you, he will only cast W so he won't be marked by your R thinking that you won't always hit your Q's”

BloooodTV says “D-Blade. Don't do anything stupid. Start E and be as aggressive as you can be when you have vision. He has longer cooldowns before he gets items. His W has a 28s cooldown lvl 1. After he uses that just all in. Also avoid him using Q on you when his Bloodthirst (secondary) bar is red. A good Vladimir will never try to trade and will just focus on farm, but if they try to trade you will win it before he has CDR. Outscales you. Take Conq.”

His early game is very weak but this does not mean he cant harass you much and sustain himself. Seeing as you are weak early game also, by the time you get stronger and able to deal with him he will have some items himself which will likely begin with MR.

arcanejhin says “I honestly hate vlad in general. You should be able to chase him down easily with Q2 and E after he puddles. Let him push into your tower so you have space to run after him and punish him if he gets too close. But honestly he wins. make sure to go in when his Q is on CD spirit visage or frozen mallet is a nice pick against him Ignite when he is about to Q you so healing is reduced or get executioners”

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 before Vlad becomes a oneshot-assassin-controlmage-skirmisher-battlemage-draintank and disintegrates your ADC.”

Sushi_Cat says “"Ah Vladimir, you are nothing but a stain. Splattered on the pages of history" Try to bait out his W if possible. Keep in mind he can dodge Death Realm with it. Be cautious of when he gets Crimson Rush and save your W for it. You'd be surprised how thirsty Vladimirs get to get an empowered Q off. Use this unwarranted aggression to your advantage and go in as soon as Crimson Rush wears off. ”

Fadedreformed says “Pretty even, even though Kassadin is considered a counter to vlad he can actually be beaten if you do some common mistakes such as trading his empowred q with yours. Care for his flash all in combo since it will be really quick and won't respond to it on time. Should be free by the time you hit 6. Try chunking him a bit and then combine flash + r onto him for an easy kill.”

Proma says “Dshield You can sustain back from his poke by sitting on grey health with dshield. Buy executioners calling and avoid trading with him when his bar is red. E start is good into Vlad as long as he doesn't start his pool. You win the lane as long as he doesn't get a snowball. Play aggressive when his pool is on cd(~24ish secs)”
oscarlotus says “Vladimir is by far the hardest matchup for gangplank, he sustains harder, has more damage, scales better and has just as good teamfighting as you”
GP Mid Build Carry by oscarlotus | Gangplank Player
elnino9 says “Don't go for poke trades with him, his Q sustains him and he can crimson rush to get back a lot of health. Make him burn his pool because it costs health and allows you to fight him. Don't get hit by his Crimson Rush Q, as soon as you see the bar fill up immediately step back. It does more damage + gives more HP back. After 6, don't all in him and focus on farming unless you are ahead of him.”
Midlane God says “Not hard on lane but outscales you hard later in the game.”
Dominate Mid as Rumble by Midlane God | Rumble Player
SkellyBirb says “Vladimir can't burst you early game and you win trades against him if you trade effectively. Shrines to heal from his poke are great. I'd suggest Morellonomicon after you finish your core if you're facing him, as he does scale and his healing is large.”
[10.18] A Guide to Lich Bane Bard Mid! by SkellyBirb | Bard Player
Veralion says “HoB/DH Sword/beads. Obnoxious, but he has a very weak early game and you get the chance to ramp up with him. His Q cooldown is visible to you, so make sure to back well off when his bar is nearly full. When he charges his E, hide behind your wave to block the damage. If you do the dance properly you should take very little damage and be just fine in lane. If he positions poorly you may be able to do a good chunk of damage at level 2 with HoB since he typically skills W at 3 or even 4. A good Vladimir will just stand in front of his creeps to block your E's and heal the damage back, but this has only happened to me exactly once. Most of them never figure this out. Look to all in right after he uses his super Q. He will be forced to back off without access to it. Wait for him to pool before firing your E. You're stronger on even footing, but finishing a kill is difficult through his healing and W. Most of the time it's your second E after your all in that ends up killing him, and that usually only happens if he is disrespectful. Probably wise to wait for help and blow your load on him while he cannot pool. Be very careful if you're low and the wave is pushing in; he has one of the best kits in the game for tower diving and can easily burst you down from as high as 600 life and effortlessly get away with it.”

He can/should be able to heal any poke you do to him so focus only last hitting with your abilities instead of trying to poke him. He can kill you at 6 and likes to dive under towers because his pool lets him dodge tower shots so be aware that he might try to tower dive you. He's very good in teamfights so you don't have the team fight advantage when playing against him. Hopefully he doesn't get fed otherwise you'll probably be losing the game when playing against him. ”

Trade when he just used his Q on minions, and you can bait out his pool by placing a W on top of him and dashing near it. But what's good is that you can ult his ult to counter it.”

Axelote says “Try to bait his pool, it has a long cooldown and it costs health - it's your opportunity to kill him or make him go back. Don't try to win by poking - his Q is on a low cooldown, he will get the health back very quickly.”

u fool says “A late scaling champ that can easily heal above Pyke's R threshold and also dodge Q, E, and R with his pool.”
Gageowago says “Poke and bully him levels 1-4 as much as physically possible. Once he hits level 5 you are rarely going to win trades unless Vlad is just bad. Pressure him off of cs if you can but just make sure to farm up and roam to help your other lanes to get them ahead. Build Morello's immediately after Luden's. He will scale out of control and become unkillable if he gets ahead. Remember that while you should roam, DO NOT let him free farm for too long. Call for ganks to keep him pressured and end as soon as you can. Bait out his pool as much as possible before ganks.”
[10.12] Ahri: The Charming Fox by Gageowago | Ahri Player
Debonair Karma says “One of the easiest matchups. Vladimir has no waveclear so just push him into the tower and poke him there. He has no range on top of it all. Your W isn't interrupted by his W so he can't even escape ganks. Take ignite/teleport”

topal says “if he ever uses his w he is very vulnerable Try to bait it and all in him. At level 2 if he gets E get w and try to connect it on him you will get a great trade with q+aftershock ”

Noodles912 says “Similar to veigar, you're never behind. Stay behind minions, play safe when he has empowered Q, and farm hard. Save R if he looks to engage on you. Jump on him when he uses Q but exit immediately after, because vlads love stacking CDR, so if you take too long, you may take an empowered Q. You scale evenly. ”

ljiljanna11 says “He has a big lifesteal. His ability to disappear makes it even worse...”
Blitzcrank burst (OP BLITZ SEASON 10) by ljiljanna11 | Blitzcrank Player
Lil Tidepod says “Vladimir's only strength against Ryze is that he can go untargetable. You probably won't be able to kill him because of this. Try and bait it out and force him to stay in lane by shoving the wave into the turret hard. If you can't do this, just push and roam. He can't push well. I'd try and kill him as much as possible, though, because his life steal can really turn late game fights around, even if he's playing from way behind.”
sm1rk says “Not fun either. But he's gonna bully you. Avoid his empowered Q (when his "mana" bar turns red, be scared). It's winnable though.”

Sanctuar says “Vladimir has always been a hard champion to lane against due to his unrivaled sustain. Buying Morellonomicon will cut his sustain and allow for better trades, but don't forget about his surprising burst combo with his fully charged E and Q combined with his ultimate.”

BigBushMan says “This matchup is like Teemo in the sense that its a complete annoyance of a lane. However, with Vladimir, he can hyper carry into the late game with his ridiculous CDs with 45% CDR. Just look to try to shove Vlad in and roam if at all possible, because killing him will be very difficult. Just try to end the game as early as possible. Another time bomb matchup (See Kayle for reference) ”
Low Elo Akali Mid Guide by BigBushMan | Akali Player
ahrienthusiastmain says “You keep your distance with celerity and vlad can't land his spells. The only way he kills you is with his flash/ignite combo. You outrange him and win trades with scorch. If you can land your charm, he loses lane hard.”
Ahri Adaptable Assassin Build by ahrienthusiastmain | Ahri Player
BigBushMan says “Vlad is a very hard matchup, as his sustain is near infinite and its hard to kill him due to his W if you do get him low. Once he gets 45% CDR though, its basically lane over. He will also carry late game so this lane is very difficult. ”
Low Elo Xerath Guide by BigBushMan | Xerath Player
serruh says “90% of the time this matchup should be free, but on the off chance vlad gets a lead and starts snowballing with ignite, it can be hard for ryze to keep in the sidelane. this champion is also obviously a monster in teamfights compared to ryze, so worth keeping that in mind as well. you can bully him pretty reliably once you get your first back and just put him on the back foot as he cant keep up with your shove from then on, just be careful of any cheesy all in with ignite and you should be fine.”
[10.10] Ryze MID Guide & Matchups by serruh | Ryze Player
Noodles912 says “Play safe when he has empowered abilities, and never use your R unless you got his pool. You win short trades, and Vlad only wins with his R. Use your E to escape immediately if he ults, unless you can guarantee the kill. His pool CD can be abused, and is your opening to hit an R.”

Kami_EU says “Vladimir struggles in early game due to his massive cooldowns pre 40%-45% CDR. Best way to beat Vladimir is by freezing your lane and making him overextend. crashing waves under his tower will help you outscale him. In late-game Wit's End, Executioner's Calling will make you a big threat to Vladimir. ”

ur_mom_gay says “Easy for you early, hard to deal with later on. Level 4 you pretty much slap him. Don't get discouraged by his sustain if he has a lot of pots, just keep poking him down. You'll be able to kill him if you bait out his pool.”
Zed by ur_mom_gay | Zed Player
chrisloths says “His W is rough to deal with. Pooling himself can negate your kit if he times it correctly, and his Q can proc on your plants. Try to keep your distance and avoid fighting him.”
Sloyr says “His W makes him nearly impossible to kill in early game, if he wastes it, you can go all in. His late game scaling is really strong so you have to shut down him in mid game during fights ( You can counter his healing with Kata's 60% healing reduction on R )”

DravensBukkake says “Ignite/Barrier matchup. Ignite for low kill pressure junglers, barrier for burst (assassins or karthus junglers). Only anomaly of ranged matchups. Take electrocute instead of comet. Actually very easy matchup, and one of Vlads most difficult. Do NOT use Q, like at all in this matchup. Spam W near your minions and constantly shove/harass him. He will NEVER be able to get within Q range, much less E. Once hes about to get empowered Q, start walking back since he will tank minions trying to cast it on you, then once he uses it on minions, AA Q AA him and you done more damage than he has healed. If he is level 6, about to have empowered Q, and is randomly charging up E, flash. He is about to flash E Q R W away. Easiest prediction. Oh by the way, Vlads waveclear sucks ass. Shove him in and roam a lot if you can't kill him. He will cry bloody tears under tower while you get double kill bot lane. Also rush Morello 2nd. ”

HeisendongNA says “Vladimir takes turrets with Q+E while sustaining off them, and W allows him to dodge all of your abilities. Your best option is to go Ignite instead of TP and try to kill him because there is no way you can win a sustain war against Vladimir. Also remember he is not really strong early w/o items and his Q is pretty long CD until lvl 9. When his empowered Q is just coming off cool-down he will likely use it on you or a creep, making him an easy target to hit your stun (timing is the key)”

ZEDORSON says “I think Vlad is the biggest counter of Zed. If you don't beat him in early you are done later. He is weak in early game. (cooldowns and no escape) But when he has cooldown items he starts be dangerous for you. Every trade with you is his win. because he will get hp back, you not (if not lifesteal). Rush Executioner in early for reduce his heals. If you failed vs him in early. Try to rush hexdrinker with Mercury boots. Vladimir's weakness are ignite and Grevious wound (mortal reminder and morello)”
Tayna says “Phew...a good Vladimir won't die, period. You can Q him and even if he uses the pool, he CAN'T move. But your E is basically useless here, and if he goes all in with the R+E+Q+Ignite combo, you're DEAD. But he has NO RANGE at all so abuse that!”
Cloud375 says “This guy basically doesn't do anything but survive till he has level 6 or two items; by which point he literally massacres you and your teammates if he can land a good combo. Crush him early or hard scale to the late game and focus every other major threat first.”

Euphoric Toaster says “Vladimir can be an extremely annoying matchup. Pre level 6 you can poke and harass him a lot but hes just going to end up healing most of it up. Post 6 he quickly gets to the point where he can do his flash combo and kill you from nearly full HP. His passive also gives him TONS of free HP, which makes it difficult for you to actually burst him down. If you're in a skirmish with him you have to wait out his pool before you stun or he will just dodge it. Keep in mind you can stay behind and drop your turrets to block his E damage. Obviously Morellonomicon is good against him although you might be forced to go Zhonya's Hourglass to stasis his Ult pop.”

Don't expect to kill him in laning phase and stay focused during the later stages of the game, his R hurts like hell and you need to have your passive up when it hits”

Yeager says “Match up is manageable because he's also a scaling champion that wants to farm for his powerspikes. - Stay out of range when his empowered Q is up. It deals a lot of damage even early game. - Minions can block his E damage. - You don't really kill each other in the laning phase unless one of you plays it super bad. Both of you scale hard into lategame, so just play passive and farm or wait for jungle ganks. - Tell your adc to buy executioners. Morello is a decent item, but not that good on Kayle as she doesn't benefit as much from it like mages do. If your ADC won't buy anti healing, then you have no choice but to buy morello.. - ALWAYS time his flash. It's the most important thing when playing against vladimir. He has no mobility, so can only reach your carries by flanking with flash. Timing it will let you know when to back off. - He's a lategame god like kayle. You can outclass him in the sidelane, but he can wipe out your entire team in fights with insane AOE damage, so never underestimate the damage of lategame vladimir. ”

Vispectra says “His early is bad and so is yours. Without CD and levels vlad won't cause you too much trouble. You can cancel his E if he's charging it and aside from the occasional Q poke you'll be fine. You can attempt to all in him if his W isn't up and could get away with a kill if you've taken electrocute early on. Later on he's kind of a beast , scales just like you and becomes a very big threat. You should be able to kill him just be sure not to be the first one to dive into him.”

RagexAddict says “Vladimir not only has no mana costs, his Q and R can heal him for a decent amount. He'll most likely rush a spirit visage to increase his healing and damage from increasing his health, while also decreasing your damage. Morellonomicon should be at the very latest your second item against this champion, or else you won't be able to take him on by mid game. Keep track of his W cooldown, as he can use it to make himself untargetable and avoid your ultimate and your Q and E damage. When he uses this ability, he will be vulnerable, as it costs health to use and he'll no longer have any escape tools to avoid your damage.”

NescEI says “Stay passive in lane first and don't force to trade with him, you will lose the Trade almost everytime, only Trade him when you can use your higher range to your advantage. You should fight him when he used his empowered Q for a minion or something, His Q cooldown is pretty high so you can outdamage him, but don't ult first, I prefer that you only go in when you got your Ignite to reduce his healing. So WEQ AA first, ignite and try to ult him, he maybe won't have that much health left because he dodged your R with his W and did dmg to himself, if he doesn't dodge your R with his W he'll be dead. ”

AzureArmatt says “Vlad is somewhat weird match up where you will poke him constantly but he will always heal back up. it will be match of sustain in lane. There is One bad thing that make him actually quite a treat: it's his scaling. He will become really strong in late game where he will heal a ton, deal lots of damage and on top of that will be able to spam his abilities more often (especially his "blood pool" that makes him untargetable). You will need some tools to counter his healing so you will win with your own sustain and damage. And all this talk brings us to one tip: "Buy morelonomicon" and passive from it will reduce his healing making him super easy to kill and make his life pain. Never let him get his empowered Q used on you since it will hurt so try to poke while the bar bellow his health is white or yellow but never when red”

Sozzoh says “Vladimir has constant poke, sustain, and is very slippery; get Morellonomicon to counter Vladimir. In laning phase, try and harass Vladimir from a distance, while also farming. Try and bait out his W whenever your jungler is going to gank so he'll be a lot easier to catch. Hide behind minions so you don't get hit by his E. Since Vladimir's cooldowns are pretty low in the early game, try to bait out a full rotation of his kit so you can abuse him and possibly push him under turret. Post-6, you'll want to be very careful trading with Vladimir because his ultimate will allow him to heal back most of his health depending on how many champions he has hit. If you think you can get a kill on Vladimir, try to get him to use his W first so he can't W under your ult and healing himself. In teamfights this is where you'll be able to shutdown Vladimir if he's fed, because solo kills or 2v1 kills on Vladimir in laning phase are little to none. I would suggest roaming for kills and try to avoid staying in lane too long.”
undeadsoldiers says “As an experienced mid/top laner I find going up against Vlad average. Most people think of him as a super hard counter to most, but the truth is that you have to know how to lane against him. Take him when he doesn't have his pool. Poking him won't work, he will just heal back up. You have to find him when he's vulnerable and be patient. The all-in has to be strong and guarranteed. Once Vlad gets behind you, he can't really do anything.”

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.”

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. ”

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 Second Wind 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 isn’t a must buy into this lane, as if he ever gets in a bad enough position where you can punish him, he is most likely dead. I’d go for Phage early in order to catch up to him and kill him. 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.”

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. ”

Try to keep your distance so he cannot hit you with Tides of Blood (E). Try not to fight him if he has used his ultimate on you, since his damage against you will be increased.”
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.”
Raen says “Tough opponent for Jax. Vlad got decent sustain and can easily harass you. You have to bait his pool since his W got longer CD than your E otherwise he will just dodge your stun with it.

Executioner's will be helpful.”
CaptianMike says “Easy match up really. You win all trades when you use your E, so the main strategy here is to do short trades. Q>W>E then disengage.

Rhoku says “His early game is a bit weak but he is very good at playing safe. Ignite works well into this lane as you have no cheap anti-heal option. And a morello rush is out of the question. If you land a pull you can get a VERY nice trade onto him but he will just heal it back up. You may attempt to chip away at him like this and kill him with ignite. You can also try to fight him at level 6. You straight up beat him HARD level 6. He has no room to kite and is just free food. If you have ignite AND your ultimate he is just a free kill. If he plays too safe and you can't land your E, just farm up and prepare for Teamfights. Try to be more useful than him.”

Phrxshn says “You will have to make trades early game and stick on Vladimir. Juke or kite out his TIdes of Blood. Avoid fighting Vladimir while he has Bloodthrist(Q) passive or he will able to heal. Dodge or juke out his Hemoplague and he will lose majority of his damage. (Outscaling Edge: Even) (Sustained 1v1 Trades: Even) (Recommended Items: Executioner's)”

ERNESTSAURUS says “CONQUEROR / FLEET FOOTWORK SETUP - DORANS SHIELD / 3 REJUVENATION BEADS + POT = Vladimir is surprisingly one of the easiest AP matchups in the game for Nasus, he will usually lifesteal his enemies to death but Nasus Passive + Legend Bloodline are way supperior and can't outsustain though it. In laning phase, his wave clear is really bad, so let him push the first wave and set up a freeze on the second wave, if you play it properly you should be able to maintain the freeze and stack easily. Once you hit lvl 6 and Sheen power spike you can run him down the lane as long as he just wasted his Phase Rush and his W (28 seconds cooldown lvl 1), if he hasn't he can run away easily. Later on to the game you outscale him really hard but unluckily your teamates don't and since he can literally just walk up, use W, R and then burst your backline without you being able to properly peel them to prevent this look to splitpush, he can't poke you enough to the point your lifesteal to minions isn't enough just be careful if he ults you because most likely his team is there to back him off. ”

AWierdShoe says “Try to push with Q early on so it pushes slowly into him while blocking his Q’s with your passive shield. If you managed to push faster, then walk up to him right before you hit level 2 and instantly taunt in when you hit 2 for a trade. If he picks E level 2 keep punishing him. Once he has his pool it’s all about forcing him to use it by taunting in for a trade, and then using the long pool cooldown of 28 seconds to taunt in again once it is up again. Position the blade up the lane between the taunts, so you can get the initial slow with Q. ”
Horu says “Poking Vlad is easy, however, he'll continue to just heal off minions. Vlad's pool takes a good chunk out of his HP so commit to certain trades to force him to retreat. Make sure to W first to counter him healing off your HP”

Kingarthur720 says “Fleet Footwork Runes and Build. Ignite + Flash. Dorans shield start. Remember that you are taking Fleet footwork to be AGGRESSIVE in this matchup! Look for early trades against vladimir after building some fury. Look to back off when his empowered q is almost up (when is bar fills all the way up.) With vlad's empowered q he gains movement speed, bonus healing, and damage but he has to use the empowered q within 3 seconds. Vladimir usually takes phase rush in this matchup so you have to take consistent short trades against him, it is really hard to force an allin against him unless vlad wastes his phase rush before you commit to him. If vladimir is playing back and safe this is mostly a farm matchup, you can look to pressure vlad under turret with short trades (auto attack + spin out.) Or you can try to hold the wave close to your turret to try and force opportunities to get multiple short trades in a row. Phase rush has a 15 second cooldown and tryndamere's spin is a 12 second cooldown level 1. So you can spin into vlad auto attack him, he will q, then e + w to disengage. Then if he walks back up while your spin is available you can look for an allin. Vlad's w and E cost him health so if you force his W, that by itself is a really good trade. Vladimir's W is a 28 second cooldown level 1. In the mid-late game against vladimir you can beat him outside of his turret range in an allin by looking to spin on him, resetting your spin and chasing him down through his phase rush with your second spin, but it is nearly impossible to dive him with his w + zhonya + phase rush + ultimate healing. If vlad is hugging turret, look to shove him in and rotate into jungle camps, placing deep wards, or looking to flank his team while he is covering the wave.”

Ask for the jungler and set him behind so that he cant become monster late game. Even late game vlad doesnt run any resistances so you can blow him up and zhonya his ult burst.

Xplor says “Besides that Vladimir is a ranged mage, has plenty of lifesteal and can run away in a blood puddle, he is very vulnerable to Yorick. Most of the Vladimirs I played against as Yorick did not gave me any trouble, however, he has better sustain than you on the lane, not only that he has no mana, but Mr. Dracula has enough life steal (spell vamp) to replenish his before you, therefore, he may poke you quite a lot.”

WayOfTheTempesst says “One of the harder matchups midlane but still not as bad as hard top matchups. Main thing you have to look out for is to not go near him when his empowered Q is up or it will do a massive chunk of damage to you and heal him for double the amount of a regular Q. When going for a duel, windwall his E while hes charging it and you should 100% win the trade. Lastly, when Eing on him with 3rd Q, hold it so you can bait out his W and land the nado when he comes out of it to go for the all in.”

TrinityForceYasuo says “Level 1 be safe stay healthy, level 2 you can try to go for a short trade but let him first use his Q on a minion then rush onto him with your dashes. Level 3 and again let him use his Q on the minions then go in for a trade and try to react on this E with your W so it wont deal damage on you and slow you. Also avoid being near him when he has his passive up because that Q hurts and heals him a lot. Freeze a lot against him and when he oversteps dont let him fix that mistake so run him down and cut his hp bar. If you dont have W up and want to go in for a trade to avoid his E charge try to be behind a minion so it can tank the damage for you.”

Discord Rengar Mains says “Teamfight monster who actually has a relatively decent early game against most melees. He takes a while to get going, but the moment he gets his core or a lead, he will just bring bloodshed wherever he goes. Luckily, Rengar can deal with him fairly easily, even from early on. Just poke him when you get the chance, avoid his empowered Q so he doesn't get an increased heal, and keep a constant aggression up to make him lose farm. If you manage to kill him once or twice just focus on pushing top lane ASAP and roam, since you won't really get much from killing him and it's fairly time consuming if he has everything up. Be careful once he is 6 however, if you don't respect his heal and increased damage you might yourself short a couple liters of blood. An early executioners does wonders against him, and cripples him greatly for all-ins and ganks. Ignite is recommended. For runes pretty much anything goes, but either conqueror or HoB can help significantly in making short work of him. ”

Thr3shPrinc3 says “This is in my opinion the most even lane you can possibly play. Neither of you have kill pressure unless the opponent makes a mistake so don't try and be fancy and force plays. I recommend rushing and Executioners Calling as it will mitigate his healing if you do fight him. Once you get Executioners and your jungler ganks you can kill him, just don't use your hook before he uses his blood pool. You both scale equally well into mid game so you still don't have to be scared mid game, but Vladimir is much better in teamfights then you are so be careful when fighting him as a team.”

BeautifulWinter says “Vlad isn't all that dangerous right now against Illaoi. Your sustain with Q's and Corrupting potion should be more than enough. If you cast your E there is a high likelihood that he will use his W to escape. His W has a much lower cooldown than your E, so he may dive you after. Go for E's after killing creeps as they may not expect it at much. He is a Hyper Carry so try not to feed him. Wait until 6 to play too aggressive.”

Also rush morello. Honestly i never lose a lane (and extremly rarely a game) against vlad as teeto.”

Kalrex says “Vlad is really good right now in addition his blood pool counters a lot of Urgot's main engange/ damage sources. He can pool your ult or your E and is not fun to play against.

Jnewbringspain says “Cho is generally great against mages, as are most tanks. Vlad is really well countered in this matchup. You sustain possibly better than he does.

Hamstertamer says “Vlad is great at bursting squishies but doesn't duel tanks very well. Only issue with him is that a lot of Vlads run phase rush, which counters your W, so only W him when it's down. Move back when his empowered Q is up. Sit behind minions to dodge his E.

Late game keep Vlad in the side lanes as he can destroy teamfights.”

SoulHero says “An acutal psychological mind game. You get dorans shield second wind, cs as much as possible let him poke but try to dodge his red bar. Near mid game once you get bc deaths dance executioners, you win. You pretend to back off(assuming you've been playing defensive, making him think he still wins) you q him, slowing him, turn on him with w, you should be past lvl 9 with infinite w, try to flip him, if u land flip u basically mow him down, if he pools try to follow unless he has like phase rush. Try not to flip unless you can land it, I recommend doing it at the last second and just auto with w till he pools. If you cant pull off kills mid game he outscales and you might lose.”

He will not pool unless he is about to die so I save my E until he pools and stun him and hopefully kill him. This tactic will not work if you're behind as you will just lose the trade and die. If you're behind then just ask your jungler and help. Only get a null magic mantle as you can't afford to spend too much money that doesn't help you powerspike. ”

Lynboe says “Le poke de Vladimir est très puissant, il est recommandé de prendre un Doran’s Shield ainsi que Second Wind. Cependant il n’est pas nécessaire d’acheter rapidement de la MR, l’Executioner’s Calling réduira considérablement sa capacité à se regen lorsque vous allez lui courir dessus. Vladimir étant un mage et un champion à distance il est fortement conseillé de prendre la run Phase Rush avec Nullifying Orb ce qui vous permettra de vous coller à lui plus facilement et même durant sa flaque. Le meilleur moment pour punir Vladimir sera lorsqu’il push ou du moins essaye de push, vous pourrez tout simplement lui courir dessus (il aura trop peur de vous pour riposter). Vladimir peut s’avérer difficile à gérer une fois la phase de lane terminé, il est donc conseillé de faire appel à votre jungler si vous n’arrivez pas à le détruire durant la phase de lane. ”

PogLord says “He is my other main character, so it might be just me reading their minds, but none can defeat me so far. They will try to poke you. If his bar is red, you either stay away, or dodge his powered Q with your E-shield. You steal his ultimate, which will give you a bonus damage against him, which combined with your burst is just unfair and torturous. If you has his R on you, just E away, you'll get 200 explosion. Dont let him poke you under his ultimate's buff, it'll give him extra dmg. His E is not that dramatic, E towards him, and it's defended. His non-red Q-s do shit. He did a W? good. you just E, and wait for him to come up to instat E-Q-A-W-AA him. ULTIMATE STEAL SCORE: 3/5”
Poglord's In-Depth Sylas Top by PogLord | Sylas Player
Jnewbringspain says “Basically a no kill lane for either side. If you stack MR early on, he will have difficulty killing you. At the same time, his sustain makes it hard for you to ever truly finish him off. Play aggressive early on while his cooldowns are high, and his damage is low. Be careful afterwards as you just won't be able to kill him.”

Vlad has been dominating in the top lane, especially in the Spring Splits and MSI, his ability to steal health, gain health, and keep distance is potent and should not be underestimated.

LighterDay says “Vladimir's pool can stop Garen's ult, the range for most abilities make it so that he can harass from a comfortable distance, and will heal for more than Garen can hurt. However, once you build enough MR, Vlad shouldn't be that much of a problem, but that will be in late game.”

Singed midlane / toplane by mlgn4ever | Singed Player
DrMoneybags says “If he ever over-extends even a little bit, he should be dead if you land a Q. Your Q works on his pool as long as you land the initial part, so he can't escape. Executioner's calling makes him pretty useless, especially if you put him behind. Hexdrinker and nullifying orb will help if he gets out of control.”

E61K says “You have to play around his pool. If the bar turns red don't let him Q you for free. Start Doran's Shield and look to bait out his pool with your E. As soon as your E is back up try to hook him again since his Pool has a longer CD than your E. Vlad has good all-in potential, Darius has better all-in potential. I heavily recommend going Phase Rush in this matchup and going for a level 3 all in. Vladimir struggles against beefy Bruisers who deal a lot of damage because he can't kill them before they kill him. Darius is one of those kind of champs.”
SwiftOblivion says “Strengths: Great sustain, AP, Burst potential, Sanguine Pool. Weaknesses: Low mobility, Squishy. Taking trades with him in the first few levels of the game isn’t going to go too well. If you have conqueror activated post-Lv 4, You can trade with him decently well. I recommend buying a hexdrinker on your first back seeing as he won’t be able to poke you down anymore and the shield prevents him from All-inning you. Once you have this you can All-in him as much as you like. Good uses of parry in this matchup include His ultimate if you can time it and his Tides of Blood where he pulls blood together and blasts it in an AOE around him.”

thedunkening111 says “He's pretty annoying, but can be killed. The only way to beat him is to go big or go home. E onto him, wait a second. If he doesn't panic pool, stun and continue to fight him until he does. Ult only after he pools so you can continue to fight. Take Conqueror.”
