Im wondering if there is a cap on the amount of attack speed, or for that matter anything like speed, crits, attack dmg etc.... that you can get in a game?

Someone told me that putting runes on one specific skill isn't that great because there is a cap, so buying items in Game that also increase this stat would max it out quickly.

Maximum attack speed is 2.5 attacks per second. Most champions start with, on average, a 0.65 attacks per second.

Once you hit 2.5 attacks per second (which does take a LOT of bonus atk speed) more atk spd will do nothing for you.

Atk Spd runes are good for a few champions but armor pen fills the same role (more DPS) better for more champions. There is no cap to armor pen.

There is a cap for armor pen. You cannot reduce armor below zero. The only exception are temporary armor pen reduction spells (black cleaver, starks, karthus wall). Read my guide for detail about this!

wrong. you can not PENETRATE armor/magic res below 0, but you can REDUCE it below 0 :P

but it counts first, so it's hard to make it go minus :P

My 'best case scenario' Taric has most of the good Atk Speed items, plus masteries and Runes for Atk Speed, and according to the builder just hits 2.45 Atk Speed.

So. . .you have to work pretty hard to break the cap with some champs, right?
