Looks fun, but I have some concerns as to whether it would be worth it for AD carries (even the ones that synergize with it) to buy it. 60% Attack speed is pretty epic, but most AD carries get their damage from crits, not flat out Attack Damage, and I don't know if that would be worth the loss of crit you take by choosing Hurricane over something like PD.

Basically, in internal testing, is it worth it?

EDIT: Although, I guess it doesn't have to cater to your basic AD carry. With Onhit Builds getting a buff, this could turn into a really fun item in those. And I could see where it'd be worth it for caitlyn. Or AP varus. Or AP Teemo, if it applies the poison. But to make it work with AD carries you sacrifice raw single target damage for AOE effect, which while it is something I want to be viable and see happen, it seems that it would gimp your team by not having that raw single target damage that is so ingrained in the meta right now.

So really, I like the item, but I don't know whether it truly is a ranged ADC item or not.

Is this the "But wait! Im a Ranged Carry type of player. What do I get in order to do AoE damage? Stay Tuned." thing you were talking about? I am hoping it is not because then I don't think this would work with my Kayle build.

In case you want to know, the Kayle build that I use is found here:

Not sure if anyone asked, but what about Kog'Maw's Bio-Arcane Barrage?

This item is ranged only, the passives get shut off if you're melee, Xyph already explained how mechanics like this work in the Tiamat thread.

Can you make this a toggled ability? for when you don't want to push a lane for example.

Graves sounds broken with perma aspd buff.

Now the usual AoE attack question. Will the additional hits trigger when attacking a tower?

Do the side attacks lifesteal?

Will enemy defense proc be triggered (Warden, Thorn, etc)?
