Threats & Synergies
With his thornmail passive, high armor, and CC, Rammus is a tough opponent when playing as Vi.
Amumu's stuns and W make it hard for Vi to get close to do damage. Building MR will help greatly, but don't try to fight him alone.
Warwick's lifesteal makes it hard to solo in early game, but late game, Vi can fair well against Warwick. However, keep in mind of Warwick's ultimate and it's life steal.
Udyr's stun, movement speed and short cooldown's make it easier for him to attack Vi. His stun can disrupt all abilities except your ult, but if you get that off him, he will stun you and prevent you from using other abilities. However, in team fights, he's easy to single out and get off your carry.
Pantheon's passive is good against Vi since she relies on basic attacks and it can block from her E and from her passive. However, once Pantheon's shield is down, he is easy to handle. Vi's Q can also disrupt Pantheon's W.
Vi's W and Vi's Q make it easy to play against Shyvanna because they do high damage and provide CC towards the dragon.
Xin Zhao may have the advantage early game, but once mid game starts, Vi can sustain and do a good amount of damage against Xin Zhao.
Vi's Q can disrupt Rengar's hop, so use it wisely. When you get Sterak's, fighting Rengar will be much easier.
Vi counters Yi good. Since Vi's abilities can disrupt Yi's meditate and since Vi does bonus damage due to her W, she wins against Yi in a fight.
Champion Build Guide
Q: Can Vi be built with attack speed, too?
A: Yes. Attack speed items will help with her W and her W helps shorten the cooldown on her passive. With all these considered, a shield could be up on Vi as often as you can cast abilities. Be sure to balance damage and attack speed with each other.
Q: Can Vi be built as a solid tank?
A: Not really because her abilities scale well with attack damage, so going full tank isn't the best course. If anything, just build Trinity Force and your jungler item before building more tank items.
Q: Can Vi invade enemy jungle?
A: Yes. However, for myself, I save Q so I can escape if I happen to get caught.
