Guide to Countering Vladimir as Azir

Tips for Playing as Azir against Vladimir

Be a bird!

Think of Emperor's Divide as a defensive ability first and foremost. Use it when the enemy engages on you or your allies. Remember that your team can walk through the soldiers summoned by Emperor's Divide and use this to your advantage when enemy melee champions engage on you.

In the lane, try to position your soldiers between the enemy's minions and the enemy champion. This way you can use them both to last hit and to project threat onto your lane opponent.

Be careful about putting down both of the soldiers stored by Arise! Unless you're going all-in, always have a soldier in your back pocket if you need to escape over a wall or if you misposition your other soldier and need damage now.

Advice to Win Against Vladimir

Making Vladimir use Sanguine Pool at the start of a fight will maximize the Health cost of the ability to him.

Items that counter Health stacking, such as Liandry's Torment and Blade of the Ruined King, are very effective against Vladimir.

Try to take Vladimir down before Hemoplague detonates, as it will heal him for each afflicted enemy Champion.
