Notes

  • The damage conversion applies on the entire physical damage done by basic attacks or abilities when they critical strike, even if one part of the ability doesn't (e.g IllaoiSquare.png Illaoi's Harsh Lesson) or doesn't increase in damage (e.g AsheSquare.png Ashe's Volley).
    • The only magic damage that benefits from this is from  Dead Man's Plate.
    • On-hits do not benefit from this.
  • The true damage applies life steal, even if the damage is dealt through abilities.
    • Both life steal and spellvamp are applied fully.
  • Without damage modifiers, when critically striking enemy champions with a common basic attack, you deal 30% AD true damage (200% × 0.15) and 170% AD physical damage.
  • The true damage stacks multiplicatively with Rune Conqueror.png Conqueror, dealing 32% true damage on crits.

Trivia

  • Infinity Edge shares its name with a set of Infinity Weapons from the game Lineage II, which are the strongest weapons available. Infinity Edge bears similarities to the Infinity Shaper.
  • As hinted in its lore, the Infinity Edge got its powers from the Oasis of the Dawn located in the Ancient Shuriman Capital, the once center of the vast Shuriman Empire. The Oasis is described as a pool with many magical properties.
  • Infinity Edge was in the old Summoner's Rift map, specifically in the shopkeeper's bag.
    • It is still hung on display in both shops.
  • Infinity Edge's icon looks somewhat similar to KayleSquare.png Kayle's sword. The blades have similar shapes and writing.

Lore

Only the boldest of men and women dare take the risky trip to the hottest spot in Valoran, in the very center of the Shurima Desert. Those who successfully make the journey may bathe their swords in a magical pool of the purest water known to this world. Any edge dipped into this pool will stay sharper and strike truer than any other sword.

Patch History

Patch 9.3

Increases critical strike damage instead of partially converting crits to true damage. Grants Critical Strike chance

We're restoring Infinity Edge's synergy with itself to make it a more immediately gratifying pickup. Removing its true damage conversion means it no longer anti-synergizes with Last Whisper, while setting its crit damage bonus to 25% rather than the historic 50% lets us maintain our original goal of mitigating the late-game squishy melting marksmen used to achieve.

TOTAL COST : 3400 gold (unchanged)
BUILD PATH : B.F. Sword + Pickaxe + [1225 gold]
Cloak of Agility + 425 gold
ATTACK DAMAGE : [70] 80
CRITICAL STRIKE CHANCE 25%
CRIT CHANCE DOUBLER No longer doubles critical strike chance
CRIT DAMAGE INCREASE Now increases critical strike damage by 25%
TRUE DAMAGE CONVERSION No longer converts 10% of critical strike damage to true damage

 Molten Edge
(Ornn's Masterwork upgrade)

ATTACK DAMAGE : [100] 110
EVERYTHING ELSE : Molten Edge inherits the rest of Infinity Edge's changes above with no differences


v8.15
Total cost decreased. Build path changed. True damage decreased. Attack damage decreased.

Cheaper items (with fewer stats to compensate) should help marksmen reach a reasonable spike earlier.

TOTAL COST : [3600 gold] 3400 gold
BUILD PATH : BF Sword + [BF Sword + 1000 gold]
Pickaxe + 1225 gold
TRUE DAMAGE CONVERSION : [15%] 10%
ATTACK DAMAGE : [80] 70
TRUE CRIT TEXT “True Damage Critical Strikes” now display as a blue/white icon instead of the purple “Magic Damage Crit” icon


v8.12

We'll be looking to make individual marksman changes in the coming patches, but we don't want to risk overbuffing them alongside item changes. To start, we're adding power to some core crit items before looking at individual champions too heavily.

 Infinity Edge

TOTAL COST : [3700] 3600 gold

 Stormrazor

ATTACK DAMAGE : [70] 75
STORM'S EDGE MOVEMENT SPEED AMOUNT : [10%] 20%
STORM'S EDGE MOVEMENT SPEED DURATION : [1.75] 0.75 seconds

 Essence Reaver
Essence Reaver is performing pretty well on users who have some way to "cheat" extra basic attacks (Lucian's passive or Renekton's W, or attack resets), and thus get far more ability refreshes. We want to open Essence Reaver up to a few more champions without buffing it on the core champions, and that means giving more attack speed so that champions without bonus attacks in their kit can get more bang for their buck.

BUFF DURATION : [8] 6 seconds
ATTACK SPEED : [30%] 50%


v8.11
Crit? Try more crit.

We're making Infinity Edge into a true scaling item for marksmen, one which amps up the power of critical strike but isn't itself a critical strike item.

ICONIC : Icon has been updated!
TOTAL COST : [3400 gold] 3700 gold
BUILD PATH : B.F. Sword + [Pickaxe + Cloak of Agility + 425 gold]
B.F. Sword + 1100 gold
ATTACK DAMAGE : [70] 80
CRITICAL STRIKE CHANCE 20% critical strike chance
BONUS CRIT DAMAGE +50%
ONE CRIT TWO CRIT Doubles your critical strike chance
UNIQUE PASSIVE 15% of critical strike damage is converted to true damage


v7.9

COST : [3600 gold] 3400 gold


v6.14
Now on Twisted Treeline.

Prior to last November’s preseason update, B. F. Sword was too expensive to have a home on Twisted Treeline. The burden of saving for one would have been madness in an environment where marksmen naturally struggled to scale into relevance, so we gave the Treeline its own cheaper, Pickaxe-based alternatives to B. F.’s upgrades. As discussed above, however, things have changed, so we’re now comfortable introducing this suite of items to the Treeline.

EXISTS B. F. Sword and its upgrades now exist on Twisted Treeline!

 B. F. Sword
 Infinity Edge
 Essence Reaver
 The Bloodthirster

 Duskblade of Draktharr


v6.12
+5 AD

Standard marksman itemization is centered around combining a B.F. Sword upgrade and a Zeal upgrade. This pairing is an engine of efficiency for basic attack strength: attack damage adds raw power, while crit chance and attack speed multiply it. Stats from subsequent items further fuel this engine, which is why most marksmen excel as late-game damage threats.

At present, the two-item threshold is slightly less impactful than it should be for the 6k+ gold investment it demands. Marksmen shouldn’t transform into unstoppable killing machines with just two items, but they should at least feel like they can contribute to their teams. We're adding a bit more bang for the buck to ensure a marksman’s initial gold investment feels like progress toward late game power, not just a prerequisite for it.

ATTACK DAMAGE : [65] 70


v5.22

TOTAL Cost : [3800 gold] 3600 gold
BUILD Path : B. F. Sword + Pickaxe + Cloak of Agility + 625 gold
ATTACK Damage : [80] 65


v5.1

"We've been keeping an eye on marksmen power for some time and specifically wanted to tackle Infinity Edge, the new ubiquitous AD item that's replaced Bloodthirster since patch 4.10 (wow has it really been that long?). Rather than straight chopping away damage, however, reducing IE's crit chance means we can accentuate its reliance on other crit multiplier items in order to scale well into the mid-late game."
