As you noted in your original post, Riot has apparently picked specific champion abilities that this item does not have an effect on. How is the user supposed to know that Vayne's silver bolts do not work, but Varus's blighted stacks do, without testing it themselves or referencing your original post?

What about Kogmaw? He also has the percentage health attack just like Varus and Vayne. I'm sure players would appreciate a distinct and consistent way to know which effects this item will apply to.

Man, I just got Zed and I don't know any of his abilities. This is a burden of knowledge, can someone please help me understand why I need to learn in order to play this game?

Well in theory it would give Varus a potenital AP ratio of 0.75 on each auto attack, which is more than some mages abilities every 12 seconds AND it would apply the blighted quiver debuff to three targets, so I would say very much YES

THEN WHich ITEM CAN SHE USE THAT HELPS HER DO MORE AOE?
It will still be great with on-hit Kayle or any on-hit ranged build that benefits from lots of attack speed and builds a Frozen Mallet. Guinsoo's will become a must-have for Kayle, also. Also, her passive will apply, even if her E doesn't.

It'd be op if it applied both no matter what. But I think they'd each be useless on her individually.

That they really shine with this item is a good item and I love it the problem is at the moment that I play and love most single Target carries and I don't want them to be outclassed in teamfights just because of one Item.
he said the bolts don't crit and simply do 50% of your AD
but they will fire off when using an on-next hit skill but not get it's special properties

so they will shoot when he uses spinning axes but there is no way for them to cause the bleed

Why is Orianna's passive not handled similarly to Vayne's Silver Bolts? Isn't it just a similar consecutive-attacks-against-same-target thing? Is the reason that you wanted specifically to emphasize Vayne's assassin character, as you said before? Not that it would actually be good enough on her to matter, but...
