Trivia

  • Since basic attacks from effects that resets the basic attack timer don't remove any Hail of Blades stacks, those types of attacks can extend the duration. This is useful for champions that have abilities that scale with attack speed (i.e Xin Zhao OriginalSquare Xin Zhao's Wind Becomes Lightning Wind Becomes Lightning).
  • Titanic Hydra item Titanic Hydra is the only item that can give a champion a basic attack reset. This means any melee champion could extend the duration of Hail of Blades. Unfortunately, since Titanic Hydra lends itself better to tanks, and Hail of Blades is better for damage focused champions, the combination is rarely used.
  • Hail of Blades has a very similar effect to Lethal Tempo rune Lethal Tempo, with a few differences:
    • Hail of Blades lasts only for the first three attacks, whereas Lethal Tempo rune Lethal Tempo lasts for a few seconds, regardless of attacking.
    • Hail of Blades activates the instant you attack, whereas Lethal Tempo rune Lethal Tempo is delayed.
    • Hail of Blades can only be activated with basic attacks. Lethal Tempo rune Lethal Tempo can be activated with basic attacks and abilities.
    • Both keystones are found in different rune paths.
