DH5: 034 - Vladimir, The Crimson Reaper
Hold onto your blood people! It's that pooling powerhouse Vladimir! Did you think that you could have brought this slippery slayer down? Shink again! Sanguine pool!
Oh man do I detest this cool whipped topping, castlevainia clothes wearing, creep. His look really never impressed me because it felt so familiar. He's got the metal finger set up that's kinda cool and his abilities seem to match what a hemo-mage might be doing but other than that I could never really find anything to endearing about this character design wise. I do understand the draw however, he's a romanticized version of that regal vampire lord that we are all familiar with and to be able to play that arrogance is a lot of fun.
In game I cannot stand this guy, he's got a stupid blood pool that basically lets him slip away from practically anything, the ability to build straight damage and still be tanky or build tanky and still be able to dole out huge punishment. I hate the fact that at level nine he feels like the most powerful champion there ever was, and the list goes on. As you can probably tell I never really got into Vlad, i know people play him and can really abuse his power and that's great but this is one champion that really gets my blood boiling. Anyone main his monster? drop us a blood-soaked line in the comments below!
