Just curious, How would this work with the new Tiamat, I figured it would splash all three, wouldn't that make the Tiamat become really powerful since you're splashing 60% of your ad on 3 targets?

While it does seem like a cool item, I have to agree with this. Now, instead of just melting one target instantly, it will melt 1 instantly and 2 others shortly there after.

Where do you get that this is a trade-off? The single target damage is still there, they just hit 2 other targets as well now. Are you trying to imply that because it takes an item slot that they will do lower single target damage? Let me fill you in on what's going to happen, or at least what I would do.

Zerker Greaves
Infinity Edge
Phantom Dancer
Blood Thirster
Hurricane
Phantom Dancer/Blood Thirster

Now I do great single target and multi target damage. I melt one target with ease while 2 more targets are taking considerable damage as well. After the first target dies, I move to the next and kill them faster, then to the next, and so on.

I don't need a defense item, because my life steal is proccing for nearly double the amount every time and my attack speed has reached machine gun status keeping me pretty much full as long as I am attacking.

This is the same way that ADC is played now. Only with hurricane you do more damage, attack faster, and life steal for greater amounts. Basically you will do everything that you used to do faster and better.

Would the bolts still get the range boost though?

Similarly with Teemo.

Actually, let me just run down the list of ranged champions, that might be faster:

Ashe: Frost arrow works, as it applies to every autoattack.

Caitlyn: Headshot charges faster because it applies to every autoattack but she still only fires one empowered headshot per attack when she has it ready.

Corki: Passive works, as it applies to every autoattack.

Draven: Q and Passive both don't work, as they don't apply to every autoattack. The passive requires the attack to critically strike which Hurricane bolts can't.

Ezreal: Has no on-hit effects.

Graves: E is an on-hit effect and thus E's cooldown will shorten each time he hits something with a Hurricane bolt.

Jayce: Jayce's passives will only apply to his primary target, as it is a attack modifier that only applies once.

Kayle: Doesn't work - but that's mostly due to the fact that her autoattack is an instant attack and thus the AoE field doesn't really make a whole lot of sense coming from the secondary bolts. I'll probably have to work on this one.

Kennen: 'W' charges faster as that applies to every autoattack - but the actual empowered shuriken only affects one additional target as that applies only once.

Kog'Maw: 'W' applies to each target hit, currently.

Lulu: Zero interactions

Miss Fortune: 'W' will stack up and apply grievous wounds to everyone hit by Hurricane Shots, as they apply to all her autoattack in a short duration.

Orianna: Orianna's passive applies to everyone hit - although she will never be able to make 'consecutive' attacks against the same target due to hitting multiple people at a time.

Sivir: Sivir's 'W' does not work with Hurricane, as it is an attack enhancer that only triggers once.

Sona; Power chord does not work with Hurricane, as it is an attack enhancer that only triggers once.

Teemo: Toxic shot will work on Hurricane bolts, as it toxic shot applies to every autoattack.

Tristanna: Explosive shot will work on Hurricane bolts, as it is a passive that applies to every autoattack.

Twitch: Twitch's posion will work on Hurricane bolts, as it is a passive applies to every autoattack.

Twisted Fate: Neither Pick a Card or Stacked Deck will work with Hurricane, as they are passives that apply to one autoattack. Stacked Deck will however, charge much more quickly as the charging happens every autoattack.

Urgot: Urgot's passive will work on Hurricane bolts, as it is a passive that applies to every autoattack.

Varus: Blighted Quiver will work on Hurricne bolts, as it is a passive that applies to every autoattack.

Vayne: Vayne's Silver Bolts are specially coded to not work with Hurricane, as if silver bolts did work with Hurricane, she would never get a Silver Bolts proc ever again. (Because Silver Bolts has a consecutive target restriction.)

Ziggs: ZIgg's Passive will not work on Hurricane bolts, as it is an attack enhancer that only affects one autoattack.


uhh
you just made kog'maw the most OP champion in the game with a single item, i'm pretty sure

im pretty sure it won't be as bad as everyone thinks, and if so, it would be a cool thing to add to make up for the lack of mobility.
