AD Carries stack attack speed, critical strike and attack damage to do tremendous damage to a single target; be it a tank or a carry, the ADC will get you one way or another.

Hurricane has tremendous AS and provides the passive to indirectly boost your AD on clustered opponents, but it lacks critical hit, taking away a part of the ADC tri-fecta. Assuming you build BT, IE, LW and an armor item, you're left with only 25% crit chance, which significantly hurts your DPS. Especially when you consider that hurricane's two extra hits only work if the enemies are stacked close enough to trigger it.

What Hurricane does offer, however, is a chance for traditional ADC champs like Kog or Varus to build on-hit instead. Hurricane stacked with AD won't shred a single target as fast (or at all in some cases), but it will allow you to absolutely rock the mid-game.

Confirm? Or Deny?

I think it's a terrible item overall. (C)

Build a standard AD carry build on Koggy and add Hurricane, then we'll talk.

Why bother, though? Why not drop the IE altogether and add something like BotRK? Shred their HP with your W and with the blade's passive and then combine it with AS and a bloodthirster. No sense in dropping the extra 800 gold on a weapon with 30 less AD if you're never going to critically strike.

It's a totally different build.

Would agree if not for the bonus dmg on hurricane. It's just that much more damage in teamfights. If you were 1v1ing the entire game it would be a different story.

C.

You might be able to justify it on Twitch/Varus or Caitlyn/Graves. But standard AD is still king.

No crits no problem, you're dealing nearly true damage.

...true damage which is still less than an armor-reduced crit with a full build.

I will say this much: Hurricane is going to affect the meta significantly at most levels of play.

If carries like twitch and kog are going to go on-hit instead of straight DPS, they'll be able to start building different items to make them more useful in early-mid game because they're not waiting forever for the IE & PD to be finished.

And if carries don't have to be garbage while waiting for high-end items, we could start seeing them played in mid & top more commonly. Especially with junglers having the disincentive to gank a lot.

Depends on if Hurricane's actually hitting stuff. If the bolts hit two targets, you're doing double damage overall plus getting those on-hit procs. That's quite comparable to crit builds. Thing is that if you get jumped by an assassin and it turns into a lifesteal war to avoid blowing up, or if only the tank is in range, Hurricane's doing pretty much nothing for you.
