If you're like me and you've ever gone through one of those dark, goth phases at some point in your life, you'll probably relate to this next champion at least a little bit. Meet Vladimir, the Crimson Reaper. This champion combines the epic power of fueling his magic with the blood of his enemies with the style and flair of Transylvanian count. You know the type of count we're talking about: the type that has a lifetime supply of liquid black eyeliner sitting in his medicine cabinet. So dust off that copy of 's that you've got sitting on your nightstand. If you start reading now, you should be super excited by the prospect of getting your hands on Vladimir by the time you finish.

- Crimson Pact
Every point of bonus Health gives Vladimir Ability Power, and every point of Ability Power gives Vladimir bonus Health (does not stack with itself)
Vladimir drains life from his target. After casting Transfusion twice, Vladimir gains Crimson Rush for a few seconds the next time Transfusion is available to cast, granting him bonus movement speed and bonus damage.
- Sanguine Pool
Vladimir sinks into a pool of blood, becoming untargetable for a couple seconds. Additionally, enemies in the pool are slowed and Vladimir siphons life from them.
- Tides of Blood
Vladimir charges up a reservoir of blood, paying a large portion of his maximum health over a period of time to increase Tides of Blood's damage. On release, or after a couple seconds, Vladimir unleashes a sphere of blood, dealing magic damage. At full charge, Tides of Blood slows Vladimir while he holds it, and will briefly slow targets when he releases it.
