spell vamp : a percentage of the damage your magical spell did will come back to you in healing

Or physical spell.

Basically as already said, lifesteal is auto attacks.
speel vamp is abilities (physical or magic).

the exception is speels which trigger on-hit effects. Like Ezreals Q or gangplanks Q. They are lifesteal too.

Spellvamp heals you off of non autoattack damage. Abilities that aren't autoattack modifiers like Ashe W or Ashe ult.

Lifesteal heals off of autoattacks and things that share that classification or reset your AA. Nasus Q or Shyvana Q, or Garen Q for example.

So does Varus get spellvamp due to his Blight per hit? It deals magic damage.

This.

I'll reiterate in the vain hope that people will be less clueless: lifesteal works on autoattacks or abilities that execute on-hit effects (lifesteal is an on-hit effect).

Spellvamp converts active ability damage to health. Only part I'm not sure about is whether that works for true damage as well (Olaf's dunk). Probably does, may not.

Blight's passive effect doesn't proc spell vamp. I think the active does though.

Varus' W has no active ability.

Hit Q and E will heal based on spellvamp for the direct ability damage only.

It does. Spellvamp works on smite even.

Ah right I forgot about the Smite thing.

I remember when people originally complained about spellvamp because you could smite a creep and get a visible bit of HP back.
