Promote Effects

Promoted castor minion

A promoted caster minion, along with 2 normal caster minions for comparison.

Upon casting on any of the possible Minions, the selected one gains a permanent Black Shield which grants total immunity to magic damage (similar to MorganaSquare.png Morgana's ability) and Tower Shield (reduced turret damage). All gold gained by the minion goes to the champion who promoted it. Turrets prioritize minions that have been promoted over other minions.

Super Minions cannot be promoted.

    • I really like this on supports if I get an early sightstone and philo (in that order of importance).  I can drop it at top lane when they want...
    • Plus, if the game is going badly, the ATC (anti-turret cannon) can help split push almost without notice. (Secret agent minion.)
