I'm trying out Vladimir and wondering why I shouldn't be buying Life Steal gear rather than Attack Power or Health.
Most builds I've seen so far focus on:
- Rylai's Crystal Scepter: 80 AP + 500 HP
- Rabadon's DeathCap: 140 AP
- Zhonya's Hourglass: 50 Armor, 100 AP
- Lich Bane: 80 AP, 350 Mana, 7% Movement Speed
Wouldn't an item like The Bloodthirster (60 Attack Damage, 15% Life Steal) make Vlad's life stealing much more powerful? Or is the difference in that Vlad has no use of Attack Damage since he's a mage?
Or does it have to do with Vlad's Crimson Pact ability:
Every 25 points of bonus health gives Vladimir 1 ability power and every 1 point of ability power gives Vladimir 2 bonus health? Which would make those two abilities scale better than Life Steal.
Can anyone explain why the other items are considered better for Vlad?
