Notes

  • On ARAM, champion Damage rating takedows grants 5 soul essences instead of 6.
  • Multiple champions can harvest the same soul for the full value. Note that the souls are instanced per Harvester, and you will not be able to harvest souls that you were not personally in range to spawn.

Strategy

  • Dark Harvest is incredibly strong in ARAM mode, as a lot of teamfights happen regularly leading to a lot of takedowns, which means a lot of stacks.
  • Works like an on hit proc, thus only being applied by abilities that interact with the former
