Visual appearance

  • Abyssal Scepter item.png Abyssal Scepter's aura can be helpful in a variety of situations, not all of which are immediately obvious. It is especially powerful for melee champions and short-ranged casters, who are exceptional at close combat to the enemy and deal considerable amounts of magic damage. With proper maneuvering, these characters can apply the debuff to the entire enemy team at once, securing kills for longer-ranged champions.
  • The debuff also affects minions and monsters, except for the DragonSquare.png Dragon, Baron NashorSquare.png Baron Nashor and VilemawSquare.png Vilemaw.
  • The icon indicating the debuff aura often appears before the enemy who carries it. If an enemy is standing in a nearby brush or just over a wall, the debuff icon may give them away even if they cannot be seen.
  • The aura will remain present even while using Zhonya's Hourglass item.png Zhonya's Hourglass.

Item suitability

The following list is a guideline about champions who should consider Abyssal Scepter item.png Abyssal Scepter as a relevant purchase option:

Item effect compatibility

  • Sunfire Cape item.png Sunfire Cape - fully fits within aura range, nice item pair to greatly improve one's overall survivability and aoe damage output.
  • Hextech Gunblade item.png Hextech Gunblade - active part has range of 700 units. For best results, try to make sure that the missile hits a target within the aura radius, an applied slow also helps to keep target in aura range.
  • Thornmail item.png Thornmail - Most auto-attack reliant champions need to be in range of Abyssal Scepter to attack a champion using Thornmail. this means that both items are very good to use thogether, especially since Thornmail's passive deals magic damage. Keep in mind that both items do not offer HP, and most champions who want to build those items thogether are tanks. You need to be able to compensate this fact; for example, ChoGathSquare.png Cho'Gath can compensate the lack of HP from both items with his Feast.png Feast.
