So Teemo is going to completely destroy now, right? I mean, if it applies on hit, and gives attack speed, that is essentially a teemo go to item.

Twitch is going to love this item so ****ing much. His ult is going to be re ****ING diculous, especially when it comes to jungle fights when teams like to crowd in bushes. Never mind the fact that it doesn't crit, and his ult probably isn't on-hit, but just the fact that he'll be hitting some people twice lol.




do you even ult as twitch?

It would be good to see a list of how a lot of specific champs interact with this item. For instance, why do the projectiles proc impure shots or blight, but not silver bolts (barring any common sense reasons like the extra projectiles obviously not being made of silver)? I imagine there are numerous attack modifiers that will not carry over (Twisted Fate, perhaps).

Taking this further, let’s explore how Hurricane interacts with various champion abilities:

Varus – Applies Blighted Quiver on everyone hit, which can then get triggered by his other spells.
Caitlyn – Gains one stack of Headshot for each target hit. Fires Headshot only at the primary target.
Graves – Reduces the cooldown of Quickdraw for 2 seconds for each target hit.
Miss Fortune – Applies and stacks Impure Shots on every target hit. Activating Impure Shots will apply Grievous wounds to every target hit.

Champions that synergize poorly with Hurricane would be:

Ezreal – Doesn’t really have any effects that synergize with Hurricane.
Vayne – Silver bolts only applies on the primary target and requires consecutive hits to proc, thus Hurricane is mostly wasted.

We hope that Hurricane opens up some interesting build paths for AD carries looking to specialize in area of effect damage. While Hurricane certainly isn’t for every ranged character, we do hope that Hurricane allows carries to diverge from the standard path of single target damage in favor of a more AoE centric build they can use to gun down multiple opponents at the same time.

He's being renamed to Multi-Target Team Murder Squirrel.

This seems as interesting as dangerous



This, I don't think riot has thought carefully enough about how this can effect certain specific champs that some very creative people will probably abuse.

10 bucks says it gets changed or nerfed xD

Nice.

Gold cost is going to be the determining factor for this item.

Some interesting cases:

Ashe's frost shot slows 3 people

Kog Maw deals 18% total damage per auto attack with his W up

AP Teemo can now has a 1.2 AP ratio on hit.

Twisted Fate stuns 3 people. (he also applies stacked deck to all 3...but seriously, a 2 second AoE stun on a 6 second cd? [AND he gets 15% cdr free])


And then to a lesser extent:

Draven's spinning Axe could apply his passive DoT in a nice AoE (I wonder if the bonus damage will be applied to them as well).

Jayce's armor shred shot in Cannon form would be quite powerful with this.

MF now has an AoE healing Debuff if she so chooses.

As pointed out by Phil Nye, Kennen applies his Mark of the Storm in an AoE

Thank you for convincing me that this is going to be the most broken, exploitable item Riot have ever released.

This cannot end well.

How does this work with twitches ult and his passive. Does the bolts apply his passive.

Oh lord can teemo blind 3 people at once?
