Why isn't Kennen played as ADC much?

Correct me if I'm wrong, but he was only a barely decent pick to begin with, and then they nerfed his AA range which made AD kennen virtually useless.

The stacks on his Electrical Surge passive still get applied, but the bonus damage does not. So he will gain up to 3 stacks on Electrical Surge's passive per auto with Runaan's, but only proc the bonus damage and mark of the storm on the primary target.

Oooooh, I'd never thought of Runaan's on him before oddly...thanks

But it would make him gain his auto attack that applies it more often.

This is relevant to my interests. I prefer him as an AP though, and I buy Malady like a true hipster.

Sure, no problem. It works the same for other ranged on-hit stack passives like Caitlyn's Headshot: only the stack counter gets increased to secondary targets with Runaan's, and only the main target can receive Headshot damage.

Other than the w passive doing % AD, he doesn't have a single AD ratio. It's not that he's not viable, there's just better
If you think it wouldn't work because it's not tagged that way, then be sure to rage at every Teemo that doesn't go support. Just throwing that out there. And Tristana doesn't have an AD ratio to her name either, but I still see her played.

You're wrong.

People need to get that **** out of their head. They think one nerf means useless. His AA range is still better or on par with every single AD carry except cait.

Tried it, still knocking it. You lose out on all his ratios when you play him that way. Kennen is strong for his great team fight. If you wanna auto attack with kennen, build Nashor's Tooth. That's a good build.

I actually played as Kennen against a Cait earlier today. If you can dodge her net and press E he's one of the few champions that can catch her. It was a great lane for me...a shame we lost though :/
