The Problem that is Runnan's

The problem with this item is easy to see. It carries itself around like an ADC item- but it doesn't even crit. In reality, it's made for On-hit builds, which are few and far between in the world of Ranged. Hell, if WW could use this, he'd be the best champ in the game (not to mention the entertaining possibility of what happens in Dragon Form Shyvanna Q...). What I'm trying to say is that this item was meant to be an ADC item, but is more useful on an Orriana with Nashors than it is on Draven. Its not an ADC item at all and it was made for the wrong set of champs.

You decided on whether or not to get Gnar? There might be some buffs on PvE, if that helps sway your opinion.

Oh, and yeah Runaan's is mostly just used for on-hits. Like with Kayle getting shred on multiple targets and stuff. It can be nice for Jinx, or perhaps Varus, but it's not optimal. I'd much rather see a single target expunged by a bunch of crits.

That's the thing- it gives ranged champs something 40% of bruisers want.

How was it made for the "wrong set of champs?" It grants AS and bonus on-hit effects. It was obviously made for champs with inherent on-hit effects and who want AS. Runaan's wasn't made for the wrong champs, idiots just keep using it on the wrong champs.

At the moment there's absolutely nothing wrong with Runaan's. It does exactly what it was intended to do.

It's actually not a bad item on certain adc's who have on hit effects that dont benefit from crit as well, particularly kog maw. Here's a chart of damages with runnans vs standard builds if you want to see the actual numbers.
