How Do Ability Power Bonuses Work?

Comment below rating threshold, click here to show it.




Well I have a rune that increases ability power by like 0.33 every level and a skill that increases my ability power by 0.66 every level.

Whenever I start out a game as Teemo my Blinding dart has +8 ability power, but my toxic shot only has 1.

And Whenever I level it seems like my blinding dart goes up on its own but toxic shot goes up slower or much less or something.

So why is this?

Every Ability has its own AP/Effect(dmg/heal/..) ratio.
Blinding Dart has a higher Ap-Ratio than Toxic Shot. But you also have to realize, that Toxic Shot is a DoT. Therefore you get the +dmg every tick.
