    Whose Hurricane? And what are we using it for?

    Not being a hardcore AD carry player myself, I'm struggling with the introduction of Runaan's Hurricane. Are we using it? If so when are we using it? And what character can use it?

    For AD carries, I think it's okay on Kog'Maw and Varus. With Varus, you'd be sacrificing Phantom Dancer's single target damage for the AoE damage. But since his other 3 skills can proc the Blight in an AoE, it has some synergy. With that item build, you wouldn't want Lethality or Frenzy .

    Also I'm pretty sure Runaan's Hurricane works with Headshot for Caitlyn.

    I've also seen it on Graves because the Hurricane passive reduces the cool down on Quickdraw. I agree with GMD the only time I've ever bought it is with an AoE composition, but I still prefer getting Phanton Dancer or Statikk Shiv.

    I guess. I've tried it on Varus but I wasn't a fan of it really. The lack of crit seems like a huge weakness.

    Seems to me the only true ADC that can make real use of it is Kog'Maw.

    Otherwise I see it on on-hit AP characters like Teemo.

    Yea... not many are really using it.

    Pix shots don't go 3x only the main target of the attack.

    I'm guessing pros don't fiddle much with him? The guy who did it on our ranked was really pwning tfs, but that's probably coz they had two ADs (he topped). Anyway, I know it works on Graves to refresh quickdraw but no one uses it, and mf's wounds also apply but same thing. Probably only Kog really cares for it.

    AD Kennen can currently not be regarded as viable. Hence I didn't tag the question with Kennen. ;P

    Kennen AD uses it well, stacks them marks so fast in tfs.

    I've seen Varus do it too, but not sure if worth it

    I've seen some people build glass cannon Varus, going standard IE PD BT LW, but instead of a GA they went Hurricane. Seems to be pretty good when your team helps you peel.

    Honestly don't know.
    You have to sacrifice important items to get it.
    It seems like a tier 2 item to me...
    You have to sacrifice either massive damage output from crits, sustain and damage, mobility, armorpen, or defense.

    Never worth :/

    i take it for varus and add in the bloodthirsher it makes last hitting easier. also and in phage or frozen mallet for the slow which hits three targets.

    Honestly, i build hurricane on every ranged ADC I play, as it allows for a much faster wave clear, meaning better pushes and more downed towers. Of course, i usually get it as the 3rd or 4th item in my build, and I seem to neglect boots completely. Maybe if you need the boots, you could drop it, but I find it quite a valuable item to have in lane.

    I love it on Sivir and Ashe, especially Sivir as it stacks nicely with Ricochet for even more mutli target DPS.

    But generally, I'd recommend it on any AA reliant ADC.

    I found that Runaan's Hurricane works very well in combination with Statikk Shiv. The extra bolts it fires makes the Shiv stack faster.

    any ranged character can use it. mainly for them, and you can use it right away because it automatically starts working.

    Using this item on Teemo will apply his Toxic Shot's poison and thus increasing your minion clear speed greatly

    Use it on AD carry builds where you need a high dps. It is useful because your auto attacks turn into AoE and the AS it gives cannot be under estimated.

    I've seen many champs like Ashe, Teemo, Cait, Twistedfate, KogMaw... But I think it is useful when you are building a true ADC. (which I mean high damage output in a short time)

    Its good on Thresh (The new champ) because his autos deal as much damage as the amount of souls hes collected and the hurricane makes it hit 3 people.
