10/4/2004 The ability triggers at end of turn. At that time, the game checks all creatures put into graveyards from the battlefield that turn to see if Krovikan Vampire had dealt damage to them during the turn. It doesn't matter whether the damage was combat damage, and it doesn't matter whether the damage was what caused the creatures to be put into the graveyard.
10/4/2004 If a creature that the Vampire dealt damage to is put into a graveyard, then leaves the graveyard by some means, the game loses track of it. The Vampire's ability won't be able to return it to the battlefield, even if it's put back into the graveyard before the end of the turn.
8/1/2008 Whoever controls the Vampire at the time the ability triggers will return the applicable cards to the battlefield under his or her control. It doesn't matter who controlled the Vampire at the time the damage was dealt.
8/1/2008 If the Vampire isn't on the battlefield by the time the end step begins, its ability won't trigger. No cards will be returned to the battlefield, even if the Vampire dealt damage to some creatures put into the graveyard that turn.
10/1/2008 If a creature that the Vampire dealt damage to that turn is put into a graveyard from the battlefield during a turn's End step (after any "at the beginning of the end step" triggers would have triggered that turn), that card won't be returned to the battlefield.
