Like if you build it on her it should have a chill effect around her fists. I think that'd be pretty sweet.

Doesn't the iceborn gauntlet already have a blue glowing animation on hands already?

I don't think it does. If it does then I feel stupid. But I think a special interaction with that item on her would be really cool.

It gives similar glow effects as a lichbane except it's blue.

I believe that the OP means a permanent effect, not a proc effect.

That would be an awesome idea if Iceborn Gauntlet was a decent item for Vi.

Unfortunately, she scales on AD, not AP. Even Triforce is better for her and it's not really optimal, either. Part of the curse of only having one ability (E) with an AP ratio, and a crappy AP ratio at that.

Wait, why isn't it a good item on her? I think it's pretty good, that AoE slow is awesome. And is still an awesome idea, I mean you don't HAVE to build it just because of an effect it gives to her. But just having it would be cool.

It's not good because she doesn't scale on AP, and it has AP. As well, Frozen Mallet reliably slows and has health and AD, two stats she scales very well with.

I'm not saying your idea sucks, I'm saying the item's not worth building on Vi, so the idea would go to waste overall.

Vi does have an AP ratio on her E, so it's not like AP is going to waste, and the sheen proc + armor is great for a melee caster, who's going to be taking hits while doing their job.
