"It's a good idea to spread out. Ashe Ashe can hit five birds with one arrow." - Tryndamere Tryndamere
Ashe Render old

One of the perennial favorites of summoners in the League of Legends is the Freljordian beauty known as Ashe Ashe. She is a direct descendant of Avarosa - one of three legendary sisters who each claimed dominion over the scattered tribes dwelling in the icy tundra of northern Valoran. Ashe mirrors her ancestor's unparalleled mastery of the bow, earning her the title of 'The Frost Archer' the way Avarosa did during her era. Ashe is a literal Princess amongst her ProfileIcon Avarosan people, though she prefers to be addressed by outsiders as her tribal title rather than any form of royal moniker. There are those in Freljord, however, that would prefer to address Ashe as the late Frost Archer; the ProfileIcon Winter&#039;s Claw other ProfileIcon Frostguard two tribes that are descendants from the Three Sisters are historically sworn enemies of Ashe and her people. Having survived more than one assassination attempt in her life, Ashe is always aware of her surroundings regardless of where she is.

Ashe originally came to the Institute of War in service of the League summoners, seeking enough influence and favor to finally bring peace to her realm - one that has endured civil strife since Avarosa and the Time of the Three Sisters. With countless victories under her belt, she has started to put the influence she has earned in the League to use. Rumors abound that Ashe has begun to associate herself with fellow champion Tryndamere Tryndamere outside of the Fields of Justice. While she denies such talk as frivolous, all eyes will remain on Ashe now that her success in the League may finally allow her to restore lasting peace to her people.

    • Recommended items updated

    • 5-stack flurry no longer triggers on attacks against turrets.
  • Volley.png Volley
    • Damage reduced to 20 / 35 / 50 / 65 / 80 from 40 / 50 / 60 / 70 / 80.
  • Hawkshot.png Hawkshot
    • Vision radius while traveling reduced to 1000 from 1500.
    • Hawk vision updated more frequently as they travel.
V5.9
  • Gameplay update
  • Stats
    • Basic attack projectile speed increased to 2500 from 2000.
    • Attack speed growth reduced to 3.333% from 4.
  • Frost Shot.png Frost Shot - Repurposed Ability
    • New Innate: Ashe's basic attacks and abilities apply Frost to enemies damaged, slowing them by 5 - 35 (based on level)% for 2 seconds. Ashe's basic attacks against Frosted units always critically strike, dealing 「 10 + (X  × (1 + Y))% AD bonus critical damage, where X is her critical strike chance and Y is her bonus critical strike damage (both in decimal format) 」「 10% AD bonus critical damage, plus an additional 1% AD for every 1% of her critical strike chance that is modified by 1% for every 1% of her bonus critical strike damage 」. Otherwise Ashe cannot critically strike.
    • Notes:
      • Frosted targets are distinct from Slowed targets - only Frost Shot can trigger the bonus damage. Other slows don't.
      • Ashe's empowered attacks (even the base 10% AD with no crit chance) are classified as critical strikes for gameplay purposes and will trigger effects such as Frenzy mastery s4.png Frenzy and Reinforced Armor mastery s4.png Reinforced Armor.[1] As such, it is also not applied by Runaan&#039;s Hurricane item.png Runaan's Hurricane.
      • Here are examples on the behavior of Frost Shot's bonus damage.[2] None of the following considers the 100% AD base damage from basic attacks.
        • Infinity Edge item.png Infinity Edge will deal 40% AD bonus damage (10 + (20  × (1 + 0.5))
        • Adding Phantom Dancer item.png Phantom Dancer increases the aforementioned to 92.5% AD bonus damage (10 + (55 × (1 + 0.5))
        • With 100% critical strike chance and Infinity Edge item.png Infinity Edge's bonus critical damage, Ashe will deal 160% AD bonus damage (10 + (100 × (1 + 0.5))
        • Probable Bug: Critical strike damage from runes is stacking multiplicatively with Infinity Edge item.png Infinity Edge, rather than additively, for a maximum of 228.265% bonus damage (10 + 100  × 1.5  × 1.4551)
  • Ranger&#039;s Focus.png Ranger's Focus - New Ability
    • Passive: Ashe gains a stack of Focus.png Focus for 4 seconds whenever she slows an enemy, stacking up to 5 times. Ashe will not generate stacks while Ranger's Focus is on cooldown.
    • Active: Ashe consumes all Focus.png Focus stacks to gain 20 / 25 / 30 / 35 / 40% bonus attack speed and increases Frost Shot.png Frost Shot's slow strength 「 by 20% 」「 to 25 - 55 (based on level)% 」 for 4 seconds. If Ashe consumes 5 stacks of Focus.png Focus on activation, Ranger's Focus will also cause each of Ashe's attacks to fire a flurry of five arrows, dealing 「 23 / 24 / 25 / 26 / 27% modified attack damage with each arrow 」「 a total of 115 / 120 / 125 / 130 / 135% attack damage on each empowered attack 」. The flurry will stack multiplicatively with Frost Shot.png Frost Shots, will benefit from Life Steal and triggers on-attack effects five times, but on-hit effects are only applied once.
    • Cost: 50 mana
    • Cooldown: 18 seconds
    • Notes:
      • The multi-attack effect is similar to Lightslinger.png Lightslinger and Double Strike.png Double Strike, except that on-hit effects aren't applied by the extra attacks.
      • Triggering on-attack effects multiple times is intentional, namely Runaan&#039;s Hurricane item.png Runaan's Hurricane and Pix Pix.[3] Note that Pix cannot attack more than twice per second.
        • On-hit effects are disabled on the latter four attacks and will not be triggered even by Runaan&#039;s Hurricane item.png Runaan's Hurricane's minor bolts. As such, the item's 10 on-hit damage is only applied by the first attack.
        • Runaan&#039;s Hurricane item.png Runaan's Hurricane's splash damage is affected by the damage modifier - dealing 「 10 (+57.5 / 60 / 62.5 / 65 / 67.5 AD) damage per flurry 」「 11.5 / 12 / 12.5 / 13 / 13.5% AD damage per arrow (+ 10 on the first) 」 to secondary targets.
      • As with Headshot.png Headshot, attacks against structures will refresh the timer on Focus.png Focus but will not generate new stacks.
      • The multi-attack effect will work on structures, i.e. Ashe will chip towers faster than Jinx Jinx.
  • Volley.png Volley
    • Arrows increased to 9 from 7. Radius is unaffected.
    • Cost reduced to 50 from 60.
    • Cooldown reduced to 12 / 10 / 8 / 6 / 4 seconds from 16 / 13 / 10 / 7 / 4.
    • New Effect: Targets can now intercept multiple arrows, but will take no damage from arrows beyond the first. Arrows beyond the first will still generate Focus.png Focus.
  • Hawkshot.png Hawkshot
    • Removed: Passive gold gain
    • Range increased to Global from 2500 / 3250 / 4000 / 4750 / 5500.

    • No longer innately slows but will apply Frost Shot.png Frost Shot's slow.
