Promote Effects

Promoted castor minion

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

Upon casting on a standard lane minion, the target permanently gains Promoted and Turret Shield. It greatly increases their power, grants them total immunity to magic damage and reduced turret damage. All Gold gold gained by the minion goes to the champion who promoted it. Blue Super Minion Super minions cannot be promoted.


  • +50 attack damage
  • +40 armor and +40 magic resistance
  • +600 health
  • Reduces magic damage taken by 100%.
  • Grants Gold gold for its kills to the caster.
  • Increased size.

Turret Shield

  • Reduces damage taken from turrets by 30% (doesn't stack with siege minion's innate Turret Shield).


  • Blue Melee Minion Melee minion has the most DPS of the three and is best used as support for last hitting. Due to the heavy DPS it offers, Red Melee Minion melee minion can easily chunk down the minions health to safely last hit.
  • Blue Caster Minion Caster minion having the most range of the three and is best used to offer more aggro damage if the enemy attacks its ally. Despite being the squishiest and having the lowest DPS, the 600 range the Red Caster Minion caster minion offers easily allows it to damage the enemy champions easier and safer.
  • Blue Siege Minion Siege minion being the tankiest of them all is best used as a self-pushing minion. Due to the difficulty of destroying the Red Siege Minion siege minion and the heavy attack damage it brings, it can potentially net last hits without even thinking about it as well and last a long time causing it to inevitably reach the enemy turret if left unhindered.

    • 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.)
