x% AS from items always gives less than x% more damage because the speed increase you get as you level up is bonus AS and not base AS. A level 18 ashe with no AS items that buys a dagger (15% AS) will do 9% more damage.

OP updated and clarified to be less confusing...

I realize now that trying to do a DPS analysis is futile...there are too many variables to consider if you want to get a true DPS number. The best thing to do is determine how many attacks it takes to break even and which build deals more damage over 4 attacks.

Yeah, I know...several people have pointed this out.

Thank you for making it so clear, though.

I've removed the DPS calculation due to this exact issue...it's simply too obscure to try to include in the calculations since it can change based on which champion, abilities, champion level and other items.
