Notes

  • Bonus Attack Speed ​​is gained when attacking.
  • Broken wings of Riven does not count as a basic attack reset for Rain of Swords.

Strategy

  • This rune can be useful for  Champions where the first three attacks are the most powerful, either because they deal more damage or because the third hit has a special effect. Examples include Triple Claw Strike Xin Zhao and Mace of Spades Mace of Spades Mordekaiser.
  • It can also be used by  champions who need to accumulate something on an enemy, using their basic attacks. For instance, Sejuani can accumulate Permafrost Faster with Rain of Swords as it does Darius with up Hemorrhage, and Tristana with her Explosive charge.
  • Jhin gets a huge DA boost with Rain of Swords, Ya que his passive converts the attack speed gained to AD. If Jhin causes  critical damage with that attack, he also gains even higher movement speed.

Curiosities

  • Rain of Swords has an effect very similar to Lethal Rate, with a few differences:
    • Rain of Swords only lasts for the first three attacks, while Lethal Cadence lasts for a few seconds, regardless of attack.
    • Rain of Swords activates the instant you attack, while Lethal Cadence is delayed.
    • Rain of Swords It can only be activated with basic attacks. Lethal Cadence can be activated with skills and basic attacks.
    • Both runes are found on different rune paths.
