Life steal (LS) is an offensive stat that restores health to the wielder on all basic attacks, including abilities that modify their basic attacks (such as FioraSquare Fiora's Lunge Lunge and EzrealSquare Ezreal's Mystic Shot Mystic Shot). It is a percent of the basic attack, plus physical damage from modifiers on the attack (such as Sheen item Sheen's Spellblade), but not on-hit effects (such as Muramana item Muramana's Shock).

Life steal is calculated from the actual damage done to an enemy, after armor and all other forms of damage reduction. All champions have 0% base life steal. It can be increased with items, runes, and some champion abilities.
