A critical strike deals extra damage during an attack. This could represent an attack that hits harder, a lucky strike or damaging a weak area on an opponent.

Most champions have different attack animations for critical strike.

Players can increase the chance and the damage of critical strikes with items, abilities, and runes.

It only applies to basic attacks or certain spells like Gangplank OriginalSquare Gangplank's Parrrley Parrrley that act like a basic attack or Garen OriginalSquare Garen's Judgment Judgment, which is something unique.

Critical strike is valuable for all champions who primarily deal damage with automatic attacks, rather than through abilities. Some champions, such as Ashe OriginalSquare Ashe, have an affinity for critical hits and benefit more from items that improve them.

It's important to note that you cannot score a critical strike against a building such as a tower or inhibitor.


Critical strike chance is the chance of a champion's basic attack dealing a critical strike. Critical strike chance stacks additively. Runes, items and abilities can increase critical strike chance.

The maximum critical strike chance you can reach at level 1 without items is 20.25%, excluding Ashe's and Tryndamere's passive.

Critical strike chance has a hard cap at 100%, at which point all of your basic attacks will be critical strikes.

Critical strike damage affects the amount of bonus damage that a champion's critical strike deals. All champions begin with +100% bonus damage on a critical strike, thus doing 200% damage. This statistic stacks additively.

Critical strike damage applies only to a champion's physical damage portion of an auto-attack. Critical strike damage will not affect any on-hit damage, including physical damage from effects such as Sheen item Sheen and Siphoning Strike Siphoning Strike). However, all forms of additional damage will stack with critical strike damage (unless critical strike is disabled for the modified attack, see on-hit effects).

The maximum critical strike damage bonus obtainable with runes, (45.51%), and masteries, (10%), is 55.51%. The only item that adds Critical Strike damage is the Infinity Edge item Infinity Edge. The maximum damage dealt by a Critical Strike is found by adding up all these sources, 200% + 55.51% + 50% is 305.51% of the champion's attack damage.

Skills affected by Critical Chance編輯

Certain skills are capable of Critical Strikes and/or are affected by Critical Chance, however these skills may bound to certain limitations. E.g. Poppy OriginalSquare Poppy's Devastating Blow Devastating Blow will gain critical damage bonus only based on her attack damage, and the bonus damage part of the skill is not accounted.

Below is the list of skills that are capable and affected by critical strikes and chances.


Other skills that may OR may not be affected by critical strikes and chances, due to other reasons.

  • Nidalee OriginalSquare Nidalee's Takedown Takedown: There is a known bug for the skill to critically strikes, yet receive no critical damage. This may be due to it switches the entire damage into "bonus damage", and the skill itself allows critical strike to base on the attack damage portion only, which may lead to the current result of "Critically strikes without inflicting Critical bonus damage.
  • Pantheon OriginalSquare Pantheon's Spear Shot Spear Shot: Only affected by critical condition based on his Certain Death Certain Death, and critical bonus only affected by it's own modifier of 150% of skill's damage, instead of regular modifier. Infinity Edge item Infinity Edge does not change this modifier, nor critical chance from any item affects it.
  • Shaco OriginalSquare Shaco's Deceive Deceive: Causes next auto-attack during the next 6 seconds to deal increased damage, which is described as a "Critical Strike", and is affected by any other modifier such as Infinity Edge item Infinity Edge.
  • Xin Zhao OriginalSquare Xin Zhao's Three Talon Strike Three Talon Strike: Critical damage increment does not affect the resulting damage during all 3 hits. This may be due to all 3 hits are counted as purely "bonus damage portion". This would be assuming that only base damage is accounted to critical damage bonus, whereby since the "base damage" of this skill is "0", thus resulting damage is not affected by critical damage bonus.
