Vlad can heal with his Q without Spell Vamp, anyway.
In the end, this tradeoff is exchanging a weak and temporary shield for something that will actually last and help to sustain his lane. It also costs mana to use, which limits Viktor in that he has incredibly low mana regeneration anyway.
I'm sorry but if I'm correct, it have the exact same mechanics of Vlad's Q.
Even to your utmost effort, you cannot deny the fact.
Yes the only difference is that it cost mana but I think it won't fit well with Viktor's kit, especially since he's not some sadistic vampire who drains hp, but a mechanized outcast. A shield would suit more than a heal imo. Just increase the projectile speed or increase the shield scaling in lategame, and he'd be fine.
