Attack damage

Attack damage (or AD) directly increases the physical damage of a unit's autoattack and also improves the damage some champion abilities too. Every champion starts with some base attack damage that increases each level. Additionally, several items and champion abilities, as well as spells, buffs, runes and masteries grant bonus attack damage. The champion's total attack damage is the base attack damage plus the bonus attack damage.

This statistic stacks additively in most circumstances. When there are percentile attack damage bonuses, they are first added together if there are several sources and then they multiply the total attack damage of the champion.

At level 18, base attack damage ranges from 84.8 (OriannaSquare.png Orianna) to 139 (Mega GnarSquare.png Mega Gnar).

Attack Damage has a theoretical gold value of 36 gold per unit. This means that B. F. Sword item.png B. F. Sword and Pickaxe item.png Pickaxe are the most efficient AD core items, with a gold/AD ratio of 31 and 35 respectively. The costs of these stats are always offset by increased final costs of their upgraded items, so The Bloodthirster item.png The Bloodthirster and Infinity Edge item.png Infinity Edge still break even at 36 gold per 1 AD.
