  • [Intended ???] Attack Speed

    I know it s one of WC3s Limitations, but shouldnt AS be capped at 400? Here in Dota2 you can have more than 400% IAS what I like
    sigpic <-- My work is done, if this gets implemented
    Also: つ ◕_◕ ༽つ Give Soloqueue!
    Need some incentive to start a match of dota?

    Unless you're really building for it (and frankly for most heroes such build is not optimal for DPS), you're probably not gonna hit the 400 IAS cap anyway.

    And removing the cap means it'd unbalanced heroes that is using the cap for the skills (Ursa, Windrunner)
    Every time someone make a false report.
    Making people's losses feel worse with just my name (don't ask me how it work, I certainly don't)

    Currently observed Orb(Unique Attack Modifiers), Critical, and Bash interactions for DotA2

    To:
    People who cry MM isn't fair: Maybe you're not as great as you make yourself to be.
    People who wants surrender: It exists, but I'm not teaching you how to do it.

      morphling says 668 attack speed but also 500 attack speed gives same attack ratio. Hence, it seems still capped somehow

        I'm not sure wether me or RoflCat got your point. It wasn't a limitation of wc3 engine, but it was the usual IAS as 522 ms is the usual movementspeed cap. You were able to set these values to a different cap in editor.

        I noticed as well that IAS isn't capped anymore. Heroes like Ursa still use this cap when attacking with "maximum attackspeed", but if you test it you'll see that values of around 500 IAS are possible. It's nearly negligible tough -as RoflCat stated out- because no one will rarly reach this.

          Oh, looks like I misread the OP, so here's another post: The cap is there, just that it's applied to the time between attacks (1/5 of your base attack speed, which would be 0.34 for most heroes, and the mutants like AM have other value, 0.29 in AM's case) rather than how much attack speed you have.

          The reason it doesn't say only 500 attack speed when you're at the cap is probably so you know how many AS you are above the cap, so when the enemy try to slow your attack speed (like Shiva) you can subtract that from your number and see if you're still at the cap.

              makes sense. I think Alchemist has the best BAT of all heroes. 0.23 at cap
