Introduction

I want to get this guide out quickly. Also my first guide, so it will be kind of sloppy. I just wanted to share my knowledge with the league community. Because you know we're all friends here ;) (Yeah I wish)

Pros / Cons

Pros:

    Great kiting
    Good sustain
    Uncatchable
    Hops for days
    You are very hard to hit
    Enemy blitz will hate you
Cons:
    Weak early until runaan's
    All the hops can make you dizzy

First of all, Why such an unconventional build?

Normal AD carries are all build much different, of course. We generally classify ad carries by what they are good at. For example, on an ad carry such as Caitlyn we build Infinity Edge first item. Because she does a lot of sustained long range physical damage. While on someone like Ezreal we build trinity force because he does a lot of damage with his q, which can proc sheen.
Since Kalista is the first AD carry of its kind, which hops around with each AA, this makes for a special case. Runaan's helps Kalista land many spears on targets early, which procs life steal. On top of the cheap and massive attack speed for many hops. I have tested this build on many matches, my win rate was roughly 72% with this build. I have been questioned a lot in games, but this build has proven its worth every time.

How to lane with a build like this

Play very safe until you have at least your recurve bow and boots. Rush vamp sceptre, for some sustain. I've found that this build works very well alongside a support with great disengage, such as Ali or Janna (Ali preferred because of your ult). Farming should become insanely easy, and your waveclear unstoppable. Runaan's is a very cheap and niche item, I can compare its synergy with Kalista to Ravenous Hydra's synergy with fiora.
Anyways, you should be able to dominate the lane after you build runaan's. Once you finish BT you are unstoppable. They just simply cannot hit you.

In teamfights

It's easy, kit and stay safe. Hope and dodge roughly 2 times per second and win.
