Cooldown reduction icon.png Ability Haste (AH) is a 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, 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 acquired by items, buffs, and 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.

Gold Value ​​​

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

Types and Application

The type of haste affects various cooldowns:

Ability haste does not apply to the following:

Formula

Haste reduces the cooldown (of an ability, active item or summoner spell) according to this formula:

Informally, this means that the casting rate (or casting speed) increases by 1% for every point of haste. For example, adding 100 points of haste will double the casting speed (+100%), cutting the cooldown time by half (50% cooldown reduction); adding another 100 points of haste would result in +200% (or triple) casting speed, cutting the original cooldown time by two thirds (~66.6% cooldown reduction).

In actual matches of regular game modes, values of (ability) haste higher than ~100 rarely occur. This means a reduced cooldown of ~50% is the upper limit to expect.

Cooldown reduction (in percent) may be determined from haste according to this formula:

Ability Haste on a champion is capped at 500 AH (= 83.3% cooldown reduction). This amount of ability haste is not practically attainable in actual games.

Reducing ability cooldowns

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)

Trivia

  • 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: February 3, 2022, patch V12.3

  • The highest attainable ability haste is 255.36 AH (on any champion with mana), this is equivalent to 71.86% cooldown reduction.
  • Ability haste:
    • Items = 25 + 25 25 + 25 + 30 30 + 30 30 + 30 30 + 25 25 + 15 15 = 180 ability haste
    • Runes = 10 10 + Rune shard Ability Haste.png 8 = 18 ability haste
    • Buff = 10 10 + 20 20 = 30 ability haste
    • Ability Haste Multiplier = 1 + 0.12 0.12 = 1.12
      • Total ability haste = (180 + 18 + 30) × 1.12 = 255.36
