  • Blackfire was revamped in patch V3.10 as a sort of 'smaller' version of Deathfire Grasp item.png Deathfire Grasp, which was disabled on TT and CS in that patch. Blackfire is 450g cheaper than Deathfire, with toned-down stats to compensate, including a damage over time effect instead of a nuke.
  • With patch V3.10, Liandry's Torment item.png Liandry's Torment was enabled on TT and CS, replacing this item's original functionality.
