I've been playing for a year and a half, never understood how the attack speed % worked until now.

Sure, I can forward this along to people working on HUD stuff. Summon the power of Brackhar to look at it.

There could be some concern with the amount of clutter that goes on in the stats window - that's my primary concern - but if the hover tooltip is also wrong that's kind of a downer.

Why not think of a way to show what the item will add in addition to your current attack speed?

Example for buying an item:

"Current Attack Speed: 1.000
Attack Speed If Added: 1.500"

Yeah, that's definitely something we should look at when we do a greater hud / item shop rework down the line.

It's a little tricky because it's hard to calculate some unique effects (like Stark's Aura, for example).
