  • The bonus cooldown reduction scaling is non-linear, granting 0.18% - 20% (based on Critical Chance) cooldown reduction, rather than granting 「 1% for every 1.5% 」「 0.67% for every 1% 」 critical strike chance.
  • Essence Reaver item Essence Reaver's mana restoration passive is strictly tied to critically striking basic attacks. Therefore, attacking turrets or using abilities will not trigger the passive. GangplankSquare Gangplank's Parrrley Parrrley is the only exception.
