There is no set build order, however leave WOTA for last the aura is not worth the gold cost. I have also experimented with Spirit Visage in cases where mid feeds and it works nicely with cdr boots.

Pretty much this. I usually rush the revolver, but I would find a guide out there that explains the benefits of each item you can buy on him. This is the best way to learn I feel.

Same with Liandry's. Get Haunting Guise and upgrade to Liandry's after an item or two. I'm also of the opinion that Sorc's is better than Lucidity unless you are losing your lane.

The rest comes with experience. You have the right idea, but you need to be able to make decisions.

You want Sorc Boots, Revolver and Haunting Guise 1st. After that it's pretty situational. SV can be good if the enemy has a strong AP presence, Deathcap if ahead. Final build should have a good mix of AP health and spell penetration. CDR is also nice, but manaless champs are restricted in that department to DFG and SV. Just don't build Warmogs.

i took everyones advice and made the following my core...

Sorc shoes
Hextech r
Liandrys torment

For bots ,since games dont last long, should my next item be rylais crystal scepter or rabadons dc?

i know its situational for pvp , but for bots i am just curious which would be better. I would only make abyssal if there were a lot of mage bots

You are already inherently tanky from your passive + pool + spell vamp. The AP you get from Warmogs (or really any health) is almost inconsequential, so you don't need extra tankiness when you're already one of the hardest APs to kill.

Use that item slot to get some more AP/Utility.

Don't finish Liandry's so soon. Zhonya's is one of the best items you can build on Vlad and should be one of your earlier items. Do not build Deathcap early unless you are really fed.

Vlad needs survivability when team fights happen and Deathcap doesn't provide any defense. Rylais, Zhonya's and Abyssal are all good choices after Haunting Guise. And you really should build 2 of those 3 before thinking about Deathcap or finishing Liandry's.

Rylai's is important as well. Personally, I build it immediately after my deathcap. The slow you get is vital since Vlad's only innate cc is the slow from his pool. Rylai's gives you chasing power and adds more to your teamfight presence besides just damage.
