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

ShokLoL says “Vladimir is a very unique champion to play against. In the early laning phase Vlad is quite weak, he has fairly long cooldowns and his sustain is not particularly great so try and build a lead in the first 5 levels. After 6 and first base Vlad becomes quite strong, try and trade efficiently and abuse his lack of waveclear. If you get the chance, try look to punish him whenever his Q is down, especially immediately after he uses his empowered Q. Post 6 he will try use his pool to dodge your ultimate, so if you land a stun normally you want to ult immediately so that you get all the damage off. ”

awawa says “He will dodge your fear and heal all the damage. GET OBLIVION ORB EARLY You can't really kill him in lane. Look for roams. If he's starting to get fed, rush banshees. His damage is no joke. ”

Mana is very important in this matchup, so consider taking manaflow + biscuits and rushing either chapter or tear + chapter. Antiheal (in lane) is pretty useless against Vlad a lot of the time so don't bother buying it. ”

Electrocute ignite can be very useful in this matchup as Vladimir really struggles with being traded on early game.”

ShokLoL says “Vladimir is a very unique champion to play against. In the early laning phase Vlad is quite weak, he has fairly long cooldowns and his sustain is not particularly great so try and build a lead in the first 5 levels. After level 6 you will mainly be looking to abuse his lack of waveclear, and try avoid trades when his empowered Q is about to come up.”
[14.7] Shok's Rank 1 Challenger Azir Guide by ShokLoL | Azir Player
Soft Headpats says “Vladimir is surprisingly easy to deal with as Hwei. You outrange him and clear the wave much more quickly and safely in comparison. You are able to bully him early on as long as you manage your mana properly. Just make sure you space his empowered Q, and you'll be fine. In teamfights, Hwei has a lot of tools to zone off Vladimir or at least slow him down, so as long as you or your team don't get caught off guard (e.g. Vlad flashing or ghosting onto your team), he shouldn't be a problem. Do NOT rush Oblivion Orb against Vlad - you outdamage his healing up until about 1-2 items. You can consider sitting on orb after you finish at least your first item.”

After 6 and first base Vlad becomes quite strong, try and trade efficiently and abuse his lack of waveclear. If you get the chance, try look to punish him whenever his Q is down, especially immediately after he uses his empowered Q. You can do this by either just focusing on pushing the wave or trying to force a trade. ”

Haze 8D says “Insane sustain, even if you poke him to low hp he will go to jgl camp and heal off it, can dodge your ult with his W”
Deceiver_euw says “Unless Vladimir messes up early on, this matchup is very hopeless for LeBlanc. After lvl7 vlad sustain becomes way too much to deal with so if he does not mess up early, your only play is to roam and hope early fights happen so you can influence them because vladimir will probably just sit mid and farm. He outscales you 1v1 very early into the game and is practically ungankable if he just uses W to avoid your chain.”

plankbro says “If I had two bans, this would be it. This guy pokes you HARD and will outheal anything you dish out to him. Early game just focus on backing off when his blood bar is almost full and come back whenever he uses it up. Even doing this, he will out poke and out trade you. He can all-in with ignite early and run you down mid game and late game, and he also is extremely strong in teamfights. Focus on not feeding him early and just play for mid-game when he's teamfighting so you can take towers uncontested. Don't even bother with anti-heal, it won't change a thing. Avoid him and play AROUND him.”

Witchking of Angwar says “Ghost/tp. 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.”

NiarWav says “The lesser of a threat between these four, you have to play on his blood bar, and with AP changes he is overall strong.”

Belle19 says “Kind of easier teemo, if you get a cheeky pull and his phase rush is on cooldown its a pretty free kill but beyond that he just outscales and pokes.”
zwartebliksem says “Your Q will stick in his pool, play aggressive when your abilities are up. He will probably play extremely passive, so zone him off the wave. If you're playing Kled mid it's a bit harder, since the lane is so short. But still try to deny him as much XP and gold as possible.”
