    Runaan's Hurricane seems like a no-brainer on Teemo and Kalista....

    So why do barely any guides say to use it? It makes both these champions much more effective (E stacks for Kalista, poisoning 3 targets at once with Teemo). Is there some reason why it's not as good as I think on these champs? Because right now I build 100% of the time, so if there is a problem then I'd love to know.

    I still don't like Runaan's Hurricane too much but after trying it out for Kalista, I can say it's somewhat legit. I wouldn't buy it for Teemo but it's decent on Kalista because Rend is pretty insane. I also thought it was a bad item for Kalista but looks like ppl are starting to acknowledge it a bit.

    The trick is to not get full value of the extra bolt but get full value of Rend. You get free slow + stack reset if you kill a minion with it too. (first hit of the Rend stack really hurts) Then you combine the item with some lifesteal so the bolt helps a little bit more.

    Attack speed also make the jumping + AA smoother as the animation is painfully long. You would sell the runaan's for a Phantom Dancer or shiv late game.

    Small addition is the pretty neat wave clear so if you don't want to or can't fight, you can always just shove the waves.

    It works on Kalista because she has a very unique kit in that Runaans gives her more mobiliy to dodge skillshts and strong waveclear.

    It was also good on top kayle when that was meta because you could splitpush like a monster and kite melee enemies around when they got caught

    Don't buy on teemo plox teemo cant utilize it effectively enough because of how squishy he is and how he cannot consistently auto in fights.

    The main reason is that Runaan's Hurricane, like above post, only gives AS. This makes building it during early game/mid game very detrimental to your damage. Plus, the bolts that it shoots do not deal extra damage if you are shooting at only one person, which makes your dueling really weak. Building it on ADCs slows the build, as it does not give, crit, dueling, ad, only waveclear. The only time I would recommend building it is on Kayle really because of the waveclear and aoe damage the bolts do because of her Righteous Fury

    It delays Kalista's damage by far. Rend scales with AD and your basic attacks scale with AD. Both get more damage with attack speed and ADCs benefit from critical chance.

    On Teemo it is somewhat viable imo, but it still only offers attack speed. Attack speed is a weak stat alone.

    It's green energy so it's fine.

    Yordles shouldn't play with electricity though. Kennen excluded. And Rumble. And Heimerdinger.

    The only reason I would buy Runaan's Hurrican is for splitpushing. Only then you can fully use the unique passive of that item. All other scenario's make suboptimal use of its passive due to this item having a maximum range.
