Vladimir's Sanguine Pool description is,

Vladimir sinks into a pool of blood becoming untargetable for 2 seconds

There's detailed documentation for the abilities and effects that Vlad is unaffected by when in Sanguine Pool, such as

However, there's confusion about abilities that still affect him. So what abilities still affect Vladimir while he is using Sanguine Pool?

Abilities that where cast BEFORE he pooled. Fiddles Drain is the example of an spell, and so is Swains Q and E; and example of an summonerspell is ignite. Aoe Abilites dont count into this (fiddle ult does no dmg, zyra ult does no dmg if pooled) but an aoe cage like veigars does count and stuns you.

So to shorten it up: everything that targets you directly and does dot will still do dmg in your pool, aoe abilities will not affect him, with the exception of Veigars Cage (which simply works this way, its something Riot wants cause it rewards skill)

What are some other exceptions that are like Event Horizon? –  Atav32 Jul 26 '12 at 22:29
    
I cant think of anything else really. Jarvans ult obv keeps you in place, so do Anivia Wall or Trundle Pillar. I think Riot just threats Event Horizon like a chagne to the terrain, just like the abilities i named above, and people dont look at it that way. –  Jacimovski Jul 27 '12 at 0:12
    
What about Swain's Nevermove? –  Atav32 Jul 27 '12 at 0:16
    
Doesn't count. But his E and his Q do dmg if you pool after getting hit by it. –  Jacimovski Jul 27 '12 at 1:02
    
Can you double-check whether it works or not? According to this thread, Nevermore can snare Vlad in Sanguine Pool. –  Atav32 Jul 27 '12 at 1:55

It seems that you have already seen the wikia on his abilities, where it mentions the abilities that still take effect.

Damage over time abilities or slows that are applied before pooling still take effect. Temporary environmental terrain such as Jarvan's Cataclysm still block him. Veigar's Event Horizon is considered an environmental terrain and will still stun Vladimir if he attempts to go through it while pooled.

The wiki seems incomplete, which is why I'm asking for clarification. For example, it doesn't explain why Event Horizon affects Vlad. Do you have a source that explains that Event Horizon is temporary environmental terrain? –  Atav32 Jul 26 '12 at 22:29
    
Also, can you list the abilities that create temporary environmental terrains? –  Atav32 Jul 27 '12 at 0:17
