Yeah she has absolutely no escape mechanisms, unless she is fighting you in the jungle and can Q across a wall.

Her W might get nerfed hard tho, its just too good.
And you know what they say about things that are too good.

I compare it to Vaynes Silver Bolts. The base value on Silver Bolts makes it superior to Denting Blows on any target with less than 3000 health (and vica versa). So it's really a question of whether or not 50% AS and 25% armor reduction for four seconds is better than true damage and the ability to apply it through ranged attacks. Denting Blows definitely looks strong, but it's definitely not strictly better than Silver Bolts.

Her kit basically makes Frozen Mallet a requirement to stick to her target and get W proccing like crazy.

As well, The Black Cleaver is almost certainly a requirement to reduce enemy armor by 50% with her passive and max TBC stacks up.

Beyond that, she has a lot of options. She can build for AoE damage with Ravenous Hydra, sustain with Bloodthirster, or magic defensive with Maw of Malmortius (better on her than on some others with her passive) or Mercurial Scimitar. A pure tank build aside the above two items is also workable with Warmog's and Atma's Impaler tacked on, though I think Vi is intended to go for more damage instead of building tanky, despite her passive.
