Attack Speed, abbreviated ATK SPD in in-game description is a modifier that alters the speed of a character's attacks.

Attack Speed bonuses come from both characters and weapons, and can be triggered by a variety of effects. Increases in attack speed will increase the DPS of the corresponding attacks, in a multiplicative way in addition to other Damage based bonuses. Effects that "increase Attack Speed" increase the speed of Normal Attacks. Unless it is also stated elsewhere that they can increase Charged ATK SPD, these effects usually only affect Normal Attacks.[1]

Movement Speed does not increase attack speed (or vice versa).


Several characters can gain attack speed through their talents and constellations.
