Attack damage (AD) is the stat that determines the amount of physical damage dealt by basic attacks. AD also determines the damage of various champion abilities, items and runes.

Total attack damage is comprised of base attack damage and bonus attack damage.

The base attack damage is innate to the champion. It does not depend on items or runes and increases with each champion level (see List of champions' attack damage).

Bonus attack damage can be gained from items, abilities and runes. Increasing the bonus AD is the typical way to scale up the damage output of an AD-based champion.

Effects that benefit from attack damage receive a bonus based on a certain percentage of either base attack damage (base AD), bonus attack damage (bonus AD) or total attack damage (AD).

Gold Value ​​​ ​

  • Attack damage has a theoretical gold value of Gold 35 per point.

Attack damage as a scaling stat

A lot of champion abilities use the champion's attack damage to increase the effect of the ability (very often that is the physical damage dealt by the ability).
