Ability power icon.png Ability power (AP) is a stat that increases the effectiveness of some abilities, items, and runes. Effects that scale with ability power receive a bonus proportional to its value. For instance, a unit that has 50 ability power and a spell that deals 100 (+ 20% AP) damage will cause that damage value to increase to 110 (100 + (50 × 0.2) = 110).

Every champion starts with 0 ability power, and level-ups do not grant additional ability power.

Ability power can be increased with abilities, items and runes. It Additive stacking icon.png stacks additively, and each bonus point acquired directly affects its statistic.

Gold Value

  • ​​​Ability power has a gold value of 21.75 Gold 21.75 per point.
