don't worry, the bleed damage will still cover your kill

You lose 80 from the ult and 40 from Q bleeding.
BUT, at that time (lvl 16), you are getting +9% dmg for 3 sec onto your main target.
So without AD you whole combo will deal around 80-81 more base dmg + 10 per AA (you are doing 2-3 AA in that time).
Now your AD scaling also gets inreased by 9%. That is around 0.4 bonus AD ratio on your combo.
You gain 80 +20 (/30) from E + base dmg and around 40-60 from E + ratios (100-150 bonus AD)
=> dmg against the main target is still the same (around +20-50), but the AOE dmg is lower (-80).
Now if i get to lvl 18, it will be another 50 bonus base dmg + 6.7 per AA.
The AD ratio will be at 0.62 bonus AD.
You gain 130 +35 (/50) from E + base dmg and around 120 from E + ratios (~200 bonus AD)
=> dmg against the main target is higher (around +165-180), but the AOE dmg is lower (-80).
In the end you don't lose dmg against your main target (as long as you manage to open with E and do your combo in 3 sec), and you will even deal more dmg after lvl 16, but your AOE dmg will go down a little bit.
