Notes

The activated damage triggers on-ability effects, such as Rylai's Crystal Scepter and spell vamp, and is treated as a single-target spell for the purpose of these effects. It does not apply champion-specific effects (such as  Brand's  Blaze).

The Doom debuff can be removed with Quicksilver.

Strategy

  • It is best used to initiate fights, as it amplifies all subsequent magic damage the target takes. It is worth stressing that that the damage amplifier will increase magic damage dealt from all sources, not just the holder of Deathfire Grasp.
  • Deathfire Grasp is a great choice on burst mages who have the potential to kill enemies in a single spell combo, such as  Veigar and  LeBlanc.
  • Deathfire Grasp is a better option when more than one member of a team deals primarily magic damage, such as an AP support.

Trivia

  • When Deathfire Grasp was originally added, it was far too powerful on certain champions and was removed and reworked into its current iteration.
    • Its previous behavior has now been reinstated and slightly modified into Liandry's Torment.
  • In the V1.0.0.61 patch, the item was reimplemented with a new functionality.
  • Deathfire Grasp, Randuin's Omen, Shurelya's Reverie, and Youmuu's Ghostblade were released as a quartet of "sister items" that share similar features, specifically having an active ability and a gold-generating item in their recipe.[2]
  • Abilities that cause you to deal increased damage also increase the damage dealt by Deathfire Grasp (e.g.  Vladimir's  Hemoplague,  Poppy's  Diplomatic Immunity, and  Swain's  Torment).
    • Also, Deathfire's debuff "Doom" stacks additively with other sources of percentile received damage amplification (for example,  Vladimir's  Hemoplague )
    • However it stacks multiplicatively with all sources of percentile dealt damage amplification (for example,  Poppy's  Diplomatic Immunity, and  Swain's  Torment), as long as the incoming damage is magical.
