This item wouldn't really be appealing to ranged ADs as it would just push the lane (similar problem as tristana's E). I think if the passive was made to be a toggle, then this maybe could become a potential buy.


Maybe consider doing something other than rushing it as your first item. For example, you could buy it after laning is over, and you're ready to start pushing and teamfighting.

Problem is, it offers no AD, Crit, and pseudo offers lifesteal (assuming you already have some). And the biggest glaring problem is ADs get most of their damage from crit, which this doesn't scale off of. It scales off total AD.

dont see it workin well with ms fortuna. if she wants to spec AoE. she will focus on AP, which this doesnt synergize with.


I do see it working well with good on hit effect champions. As mentioned already, champions like twisted fate and teemo could abuse this in team fights.

twisted fate is already tier 1, so this could put potentially put him over the top. And this could really put Teemo in tier 1 status, which is annoying

Well, we don't know what Riot's got planned for Crit, lifesteal etc. so I guess we'll just have to wait for the items to all be revealed before we start worrying.

no since zed is melee and is a ranged only item.....

Do the bolts have their own set missile speed, or will they match the missile speed of the user's auto-attacks?

As long as Crit remains as good as it currently is, this item likely won't work on a Ranged AD Carry.

What good is doing AoE damage if you can kill them twice as fast one at a time?
