Auto attacks or attacks are usually indispensable in League of Legends and every general of the game is more or less taking this action. Basic attacks are free, so it is the most effective way to take soldiers or exchange skill points with opponents because you do not spend any resources at all, of course only in the laning phase only.
Every LoL champion has the ability to fight normally
The idea of damage from basic attacks is only important for the gunner or a few champions depending on the auto attack of the enemy but with the mind of Faker – League’s greatest player – the Wizards also need attack speed to increase damage. Evidence is that Faker uses extra pearls to increase attack speed stats for champions like Zoe, Leblanc Or even Swain …, of course he still dresses up in normal AP.

Although the damage is not too large, the additional 1-2 normal attacks on the enemy on the road will make a huge difference
Basically, basic attacks will have the same attack time as attack time, fast or slow attack speed will indicate the attack speed of that champion. The point here is that if you move too early before the time to hit ends, your attack will not be launched. For wizards, it’s often too early for players to interrupt attacks and you’ll waste a small amount of damage but still be extremely useful.
Moreover, the timing of the above attacks also makes your champion stay in a position when attacking normally, so people often unleash orientation skills when the enemy is attacking or eating soldiers. How long this delay stays depends on the quality of the champion, so champions with long delay like Anivia or Karthus are no longer so popular in the mid lane now.
Anivia has a basic attack animation and extremely slow attack speed, so she is gradually abandoned by the mid laners
Returning to Faker’s method of getting gems, he understood all of the above and realized that without a good enough attack speed, it would waste a small amount of damage, but it would still be from normal attacks. Sometimes they are the difference between defeating or failing to defeat an enemy champion. Moreover, the attack speed is too low will last a little more time you stand still to eat soldiers, which means increasing the danger to yourself.
When hitting a hand, your champion will have a small amount of time standing in one position, this is an opportunity for the opponent to throw skills on you
Remember that a basic attack once launched cannot be dodged (except in the case of Jax), it is like a target picking skill and does not cost anything. Therefore, even though playing the Wizard, Faker always takes the speed of pearl to increase the damage to the opponent, while reducing the time to stand while fighting monsters, minimizing the risk of hitting opponent’s skills.
Perhaps gamers should gradually learn the habit of using speed attack instead of a bit of adaptive power just like Faker.
