Strategy

  • As Vampiric Scepter item.png Vampiric Scepter a necessary component for almost all of the life steal items (the only exception is Guinsoo's Rageblade item.png Guinsoo's Rageblade), Vampiric Scepter item.png Vampiric Scepter is useful for any stage of the game.
  • Vampiric Scepter item.png Vampiric Scepter increases the sustain of any champion, but it is best used with auto-attacking champions as lifesteal only works with basic attacks. Ranged champions, such as AsheSquare.png Ashe or TristanaSquare.png Tristana, are able to restore health while being relatively safe. Melee champions, such as JaxSquare.png Jax or WukongSquare.png Wukong, are in more danger to be damaged if an enemy champion is nearby.
  • Vampiric Scepter item.png Vampiric Scepter is often used with Doran's Blade item.png Doran's Blade, allowing champions to stay in lanes for extended periods of time without needing to go back to base to heal. Doran's Blade item.png Doran's Blade is often the preferred item as it also adds health, but its drawbacks are not building into other items.
  • If you're having trouble sustaining in top or mid as AD, do not rush Vampiric Scepter item.png Vampiric Scepter - at 800 gold and only 8% lifesteal, given low (sub 150) total AD values, you usually won't be able to sustain enough from trading and lane minions. Note that 800 gold is 22.857 health potions - or 3300 total health from regen. Consider either Doran's Blade item.png Doran's Blades or Health Potion item.png Health Potions.
