Wow, I never actually knew that bonus AS only applied to the base AS value. That's really sad given that I read the forums regularly and have been playing for over a year.

Thanks for posting about this.

after being linked here from the thread on PD rush on Trist, I completely agree, AS is a pretty bad stat, clarity wise.

To be fair, though, it took me forever to figure out how MR and armor work as well (before they added the %reduction tooltip).

haha, the % reduction tooltip wasn't there before? it's actually an ingenious way of handling armor and magic resist... riot, if you came up with the system on your own, i congratulate you on a job well done. now you just need to tweak the attack speed display and all your stats will be transparent and easily understandable :P (well, maybe other than % vs. flat shredding...)

This is... amazing. If I were the type to play AD Carries, this would seriously effect some of my calculations. Out of curiosity, are AS debuffs also counter-intuitive?

surprisingly, AS debuffs are very intuitive. i believe they affect your total attack speed. meaning, frozen heart's 20% debuff reduces your TOTAL attack speed by 20%, so you do 20% less damage.
