Some AD Math...

**tldr; Lord Dominik's Regard has AD lethality damage out of control.** These 8.11 new items & changes to LDR have boosted AD burst damage significantly. Lets look. With 3x lethality items + LDR you penetrate 83 armor basically doing true damage to every champ that doesn't build armor. {{item:3147}} {{item:3142}} {{item:3814}} {{item:3036}} For example lets add in {{item:3078}} {{item:3095}} full no-boot build. Conservatively you have 450AD (more with infernals, pot, gathering storm, buffs, etc.) Take a champ like Nocturne. His ult does 400+150% bonus AD --> 900 damage. His 1st auto will do 450*(1+0.6 stormrazor + 0.2passive) + 200 (duskblade) + 236 (trinity force) = 1246 damage. Dark Harvest adds 310 more damage at 150 souls. So R+Auto = 900+1246+310=2456 damage... literally ult in and single auto attack and they die (I've done this in game and I get the "????" in all chat). Most squishies have 2000 life. You don't even need to Q or E them... just R + Auto. Take a champ like Miss Fortune. Her 1st auto will do 450*1.6 + 450 (passive) + 200 (duskblade) + 184 (Trinity Force) + 313 (Dark Harvest @ 150) = 1919 damage... which is basically a 1shot. Realistically if they have full health you have to throw in a Q... but still Auto+Q = dead. Her ult also does 7,000 AOE ~true damage. No wonder she's the highest win rate champ in the game (54.5% at the moment) Zed's 1st auto will do 450x1.6(Stormrazor) + 312 (Dark Harvest @ 150 Stacks) +242 (Trinity Force) = 1274. Funny thing... Zed can miss all his abilities and still kill somebody with R + Auto (1274*1.55+450 = 2425 damage) These damage numbers are similar to 8.10... with 2 big differences. 1: With lethality items against an unarmed target Lord Dominik's adds 30% damage on 8.11 compared to 8.10 due to the change from bonus armor pen to total armor pen. On 8.10 a target would typically have about 30 armor left over after lethality was taken into account... but on 8.11 they are left with 0 armor. 2: Stormrazor adds ~270 more burst (depending on AD) In the history of league there's never been this much damage increase in 1 patch. The damage creep is real. I've never killed people with 1 auto attack before but I've done it a few times on 8.11. Not sure that's a good state for the game...
