Guide to Playing with Vladimir
- Vladimir's ultimate, Hemoplague, is most effective when cast during teamfights on as many enemy champions as possible.
- When you anticipate an engagement with your enemy lane partner, keep one stack of Bloodthirst so that you get the empowered Transfusion when you cast it.
