Cooldown reduction icon.png Ability Haste (AH) is the statistic that represents cooldown reduction, particularly cooldown of champion abilities. It is distinct from other versions of haste such as summoner spell haste and item haste, those of which are not visibly tracked in game. This article will discuss all forms of haste for the topic of cooldown reduction.

Ability Haste can be granted by items, buffs buffs, and runes runes; it also Additive stacking icon.png stacks additively.

The reduced cooldown is determined at the moment an ability is activated. Increasing or decreasing ability haste while the skill is on cooldown will not affect the cooldown.

Types and Application

The type of haste affects various cooldowns:

Ability haste does not apply to the following:


The formula for an ability cooldown is:

Conceptually, every 1 AH equals 1% more ability casts, or 1% faster cooldown. The formula translates the stat into a multiplier for the base cooldown, such that 100% increase (or 1 extra cast) at 100 AH renders a x0.5 multiplier, or 50% of the cooldown.

Alternatively, cooldown reduction can be calculated with the formula:

  • Cooldown reduction = 1 − (1 ÷ (1 + (Ability haste ÷ 100)))

Gold Value ​​​

  • Ability haste has a gold value of 26.67 Gold 26.67 per point.

Champion Abilities

Some champions have abilities that decrease their cooldowns by a flat amount, or by a percentage, affecting either their base cooldown or current cooldown, or some abilities can completely refresh their cooldown. Base reduction occurs before ability haste takes effect while flat reduction occurs after ability haste takes effect.

  • Depending on built-in reduction type:
    • Base (applies before AH)
    • Flat (applies after AH)
    • Percent (applies to base / current / total cooldown)
    • Refresh (cooldown is immediately reduced to 0)

  • Arcane Comet Arcane Comet is the only rune that can have its remaining cooldown be reduced. It is reduced by a percentage upon hitting an enemy champion with ability damage.


  • Ability haste replaced cooldown reduction as a stat on patch V10.23. The change to an upcapped stat allows more flexibility on creating more items with cooldown reduction power.[1]

Last updated: November 15, 2020, patch V10.23

  • The highest attainable ability haste is 223 AH.
  • Relevant mathematics:
    • Items = 25 + 25 25 + 25 + 40 40 + 30 30 + 30 30 + 25 25 + 20 20 = 195 ability haste
    • Runes = 10 10 + Rune shard Ability Haste.png 8 = 18 ability haste
    • Buff = 10 10 = 10 ability haste
      • Total ability haste = 195 + 18 + 10 = 223
