Attack damage icon.png 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. Attack damage Additive stacking icon.png stacks additively.

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 35 Gold 35 per point.

Attack damage as a scaling stat

Many abilities, items, and runes benefit from attack damage through their AD ratios. They can count base AD, bonus AD, and/or total AD. Note that attack damage does not always apply to physical damage; ratios can be assigned to any damage type.

The following champions do not have an AD ratio on any of their abilities: Annie Annie, Ahri Ahri, Anivia Anivia, Aurelion Sol Aurelion Sol, Bard Bard, Brand Brand, Cassiopeia Cassiopeia, Gwen Gwen, Ivern Ivern, Karma Karma, Karthus Karthus, LeBlanc LeBlanc, Lillia Lillia, Lissandra Lissandra, Lulu Lulu, Lux Lux, Morgana Morgana, Nami Nami, Neeko Neeko, Orianna Orianna, Rakan Rakan, Rammus Rammus, Rell Rell, Rumble Rumble, Ryze Ryze, Seraphine Seraphine, Sona Sona, Soraka Soraka, Swain Swain, Syndra Syndra, Taliyah Taliyah, Taric Taric, Teemo Teemo, Veigar Veigar, Vel'Koz Vel'Koz, Vex Vex, Vladimir Vladimir, Xerath Xerath, Ziggs Ziggs, Zoe Zoe, Zyra Zyra.

Last updated: July 22, 2020 – V10.17

Still, Hecarim Hecarim can potentially reach a higher AD with 10959.6486 movement speed or higher.

  • Hecarim Hecarim Bonus AD needed = 3408.294591 − 120.4 = 3287.894591
    • Hecarim Hecarim MS needed = 3287.894591 / 0.3 = 10959.6486


  • At level 18, base attack damage ranges from 50 (Senna Senna) to 153 (Illaoi Illaoi).
  • The ability with the second largest AD ratio is Miss Fortune's Miss Fortune's Bullet Time Bullet Time, with a possible maximum AD ratio of 1524% AD.
  • The ability with the largest AD ratio is Kalista's Kalista's Rend Rend, with a possible maximum AD ratio of (8915% AD)
    • To achieve that Rend Rend must be rank 5 and Kalista Kalista needs to stack 254 spears on a target before using Rend Rend.
