Is it most just to synergize with critical strike? if an adc has AD scalling abilities wuldnt buying ad over as benefit overall dps? also you can kite more effectively with less as

im not a new player... ive built as items on adc always... just had this thought

Most ADCs aren't about using abilities. They are about autoattacks.

And some ADC abilities are build off AP instead of AD.

No, because diminishing returns exists.

Easier to kite with higher AS, easier to farm as well.

Synergizes better with crits like you said.

More attack speed makes your autoattack animation faster, allowing you to orbwalk and kite easier. ADC's like Varus and Vayne have abilities that scale hard on attack speed so it is good to pick up attack speed. Then it also gives you more damage and special effects that AD items don't have (Botrk, PD, Zephyr, Stattik Shiv, ect.)
