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).

Alternatively killing Zeds

Last updated: September 21, 2018 – V8.18

Two Zed OriginalSquare Zeds can alternately kill each other with Death Mark Death Mark:

Let's say the AD of Zed OriginalSquare Zed 1 is X and the AD of Zed OriginalSquare Zed 2 is Y. The AD of the Zed OriginalSquare Zeds after infinitely killing each other can be calculated as follows:

  • Define the two bonuses where A is the first Death Mark Death Mark bonus while B is the second
  • A = (Y + B) × 0.15 + 5
  • B = (X + A) × 0.15 + 5
  • This gives the formula
  First Death Mark Death Mark bonus AD
  = (0.15Y + 0.0225X + 5.75) ÷ 0.9775
  Second Death Mark Death Mark bonus AD
  = (0.15X + 0.0225Y + 5.75) ÷ 0.9775


  Total AD of Zed OriginalSquare Zed 1 = (0.15Y + X + 5.75) ÷ 0.9775
  Total AD of Zed OriginalSquare Zed 2 = (0.15X + Y + 5.75) ÷ 0.9775

Largest AD

Last updated: June 18, 2018 – V8.12

Without using Gathering Storm rune Gathering Storm which potentially allows for infinite amounts of attack damage, the largest amount of attack damage is reached with a level 18 Jhin OriginalSquare Jhin at 3695.053833016 AD. Still, Hecarim OriginalSquare Hecarim can potentially reach a higher AD with 11916.84610053 movement speed or higher.

  • Hecarim OriginalSquare Hecarim AD needed into MS = 3695.053833016 − 120 = 3575.053833016
    • Hecarim OriginalSquare Hecarim MS needed = 3575.053833016 / 0.3 = 11916.84610053


  • At level 18, base attack damage ranges from 71.5 (Janna OriginalSquare Janna) to 153 (Illaoi OriginalSquare Illaoi).
  • The ability with the second largest AD ratio is Miss Fortune OriginalSquare Miss Fortune's Bullet Time Bullet Time, with a possible maximum AD ratio of 1440% AD.
  • The ability with the largest AD ratio is Kalista OriginalSquare Kalista's Rend Rend, with a possible maximum AD ratio of (8915% AD)
    • To achieve that Rend Rend must be rank 5 and Kalista OriginalSquare Kalista needs to stack 254 spears on a target before using Rend Rend.
