Vi is a melee fighter Champ which relies mostly on auto-attacks to deal damage along side with her abilities

but with a small calculation , turns out that vi is one of the slowest 3 attack speed dependent champions in the whole game

Take a look at this

http://leagueoflegends.wikia.com/wik...7_attack_speed

Also Vi Can't Afford To Buy AS Items Without sacrificing damage or survivability
& the low base AS cuts out the as from items

She gains attack speed from W passive but yes she should get some more attack speed added to base.

Maybe 0.658, same as Jarvan?

Another nice thing for all melees would be a decent AS+Defense item (Ionic Spark, how we miss you). Maybe an upgrade for Wit's End (Giving it either more MR with another NMM or maybe some sustain with a Rejuvenation Bead and added to the passive: On-hit, restores (Champion Lvl/2)+1 HP (to prevent excessive sustain in lane)) or something reminiscent of old Stark's?

I noticed this right away when I played Vi. She is one of the slowest attackers that relies on basic attack damage. Yes, she does gain attack speed from w but you have to reach that 3 on them first in order to get the more attack speed and it only goes up that much as long as you remain to get the three hit combo. I agree, she needs to hit faster.

Get a Frozen Mallet or Triforce as your core item (I prefer mallet) then pick up a Zephyr and BOOM you have the autoattack speed you need, the chase to get those attacks off, cooldowns for your excessive force for more AA resets to proc extra denting blows. Finally pick up a Cleaver and boom, you're tanky enough and you move/attack fast. Surprisingly, a lot of complaints people have about champions lately are solved by buying Zephyr.

man i always buy zypher since i saw spazie using it in a stream on vi
but the problem the the AS items amplifies your base AS which is low to for vi

i tried out once a zypher & zerkers graves & the total AS was 1.3

Doesn't her Q=>Auto=>E proc her W in like 1.5 sec for more attack speed? I guess you would only have a problem if you miss your Q a lot.

I don't think Vaultbreaker procs Denting Blows, however, Vaultbreaker closes gap and denting blows is an AA reset which means you can get your full AA buff from Denting Blows verrrrry quickly with Q-Auto-E-E.

1.3 attacks a second, with 2 AA resets a second apart adds up to about 5 AAs in under 3 seconds, which amounts to 1.6 AS, and remember that you're getting your denting blows buff after just under 2 seconds with that combo, so you're fine with AS, especially if you have a frozen mallet for a slow.

You don't have to think, you have to go and read what it does...
Vault breaker applies denting blows to all minions and champions hit.

That was unnecessarily rude, I missed a line in the middle of the ability description, and looked at the Ability Details section on the Wikia, which is usually where this is listed. No need to be **** about it, especially when we agree on the basic point.
