I was looking at a Druid+PD+CUP+SM+TG team. SM/TG can be freely replaced by other 1000 attack rate heroes. All heroes have 5/9 skill and no talents.

**Without a cap on attack rate**, PD will stack on more or less infinitely. 30 seconds into the fight, your team will be buffed with 8xPD, 6xDruid and 1x Cupid buff for a total of +4143% DMG, -94.24% Attack Rate, and +716% MOV SPD. All the Cupid buff really does here is speed up the process, Im sure people boss battling with Druid/PD/Champ/TG+1 reaching perma stun must have seen comparable results with heroes reaching crazy attack speeds, assuming you have a 5/9 PD. If you do not have PD at 5/9 yet, I strongly advice you to upgrade it asap. Should increase DMG dramatically.

With Cupid, the team procs within 3 seconds continuously (from t=13.93 in battle), giving you perma stun with just champion. So all you have to do is survive until that point in time. And then let the stacking go berserk.

Graph added below.

**Based on an attack rate cap of 500, which apparently was a wrong assumption:**

I found out that after 16.5 seconds after the first attack with this team, within each interval of 6 seconds, you will have:

2 procs of Druid, PD, SM and TG. 1 proc of Cupid.

3.5 seconds of triple PD, double Druid and single Cupid buff: +353% DMG, -66% Attack Rate, +120% MOV SPD

0.5 Seconds of triple PD, single Druid and single Cupid buff: +260% DMG, -66% Attack Rate, +120% MOV SPD

0.5 Seconds of double PD, double Druid and single Cupid buff: +249% DMG, -51% Attack Rate, +69% MOV SPD

1.5 Seconds of double PD, single Druid and single Cupid buff: +177% DMG, -51% Attack Rate, +69% MOV SPD

More detailed calculation outcomes:

Assuming first attack at t=0 seconds...

t=7.00: The Druid, PD, SM and TG proc.

Attack Rate goes down to 700 for these heroes and to 840 for Cupid.

DMG goes up by 63.8% (1.3*1.26-1) for all heroes. Movement Speed of all heroes is up 30%.

t=8.04: The Cupid procs.

All Energy goes up with 30 points.

DMG is now up by 112.94% for all heroes.

t=10.50: The Druid, PD, SM and TG proc for a second time (the Cupid proc saves you 2 attacks!).

Attack Rate goes down to 500 (this is the minimum!) for these heroes and to 588 for Cupid.

DMG is now up by 248.80% for all heroes. Movement Speed of all heroes is up 69%.

t=12.00: First Druid buff wears off.

DMG is now up by 176.82% for all heroes.

t=14.00: The Druid, PD, SM and TG proc for a third time.

Attack Rate of all heroes is now 500. Movement Speed of all heroes is up 119.7%.

DMG is now up by 353.43% for all heroes.

t=14.04: Cupid buff wears off.

DMG is now up by 248.80% for all heroes.

t=14.09: The Cupid procs.

All Energy goes up with 30 points.

DMG is now up by 353.43% for all heroes.

t=15.00: First PD buff wears off.

Attack Rate goes back to 588 for Cupid. Rest still 500.

DMG is now up by 248.80% for all heroes. Movement Speed of all heroes is up 69%.

t=15.50: Second Druid buff wears off.

DMG is now up by 176.82% for all heroes.

t=16.50: The Druid, PD, SM and TG proc for a fourth time.

Attack Rate of all heroes is now 500. Movement Speed of all heroes is up 119.7%.

DMG is now up by 353.43% for all heroes.

T=18.50: Second PD buff wears off.

Attack Rate goes back to 588 for Cupid. Rest still 500.

DMG is now up by 248.80% for all heroes. Movement Speed of all heroes is up 69%.

t=19.00: Second Druid buff wears off.

DMG is now up by 176.82% for all heroes.

t=20.00: The Druid, PD, SM and TG proc for a fourth time.

Attack Rate of all heroes is now 500. Movement Speed of all heroes is up 119.7%.

DMG is now up by 353.43% for all heroes.

etc.

In the end you get into a loop (which started t=16.5 and repeats at t=22.5, 28.5, etc.);

2.0 Seconds +353% DMG, -66% Attack Rate, +120% MOV SPD

0.5 Seconds +249% DMG, -51% Attack Rate, +69% MOV SPD

1.0 Seconds +177% DMG, -51% Attack Rate, +69% MOV SPD

1.5 Seconds +353% DMG, -66% Attack Rate, +120% MOV SPD (there will be a brief dive of DMG in the interval between Cupid proc wears off and new Cupid proc)

0.5 Seconds +260% DMG, -66% Attack Rate, +120% MOV SPD

0.5 Seconds +177% DMG, -51% Attack Rate, +69% MOV SPD

back to top.

So with this team, within each interval of 6 seconds you will have:

2 procs of Druid, PD, SM and TG. 1 proc of Cupid.

3.5 seconds of triple PD, double Druid and single Cupid buff: +353% DMG, -66% Attack Rate, +120% MOV SPD

0.5 Seconds of triple PD, single Druid and single Cupid buff: +260% DMG, -66% Attack Rate, +120% MOV SPD

0.5 Seconds of double PD, double Druid and single Cupid buff: +249% DMG, -51% Attack Rate, +69% MOV SPD

1.5 Seconds of double PD, single Druid and single Cupid buff: +177% DMG, -51% Attack Rate, +69% MOV SPD

Maybe we need a cooldown on PD skill next to avoid these insane bonuses...?

Disclaimers:

1) These calculations assume continuous attacking by the heroes. I think this is fair considering that with their huge MOV SPD bonuses they will likely get from target to target within a hit.

2) These calculations exclude enemy attacks that fill up the energy meter; 15 per hero attack and 1 per tower/troop attack. Needless to say that with heroes under attack they will proc even faster, except for Cupid (due to cooldown).

EDIT: Updated the post for stacking without cap on attack rate.
