Builds Into


  • With the increased durability and sustainability it provides, Catalyst the Protector allows champions to remain in their lanes longer without needing to recall.
  • Champions at higher levels require more experience to level up, making this item less effective at providing sustainability at later stages of the game.


  • The word Catalyst means something or someone that precipitates or causes an event to happen without being used up itself, possibly referring to the passive effect that causes massive regeneration whenever a champion gains a level.
