Cost Analysis*

Gold Value

Gold Efficiency*

  • Eye of the Watchers item Eye of the Watchers is 82.33% gold efficient without its passive and active.
  • The item becomes gold efficient in 32 minutes and 24 seconds without using Tribute, or after 26 hits against a champion or structure while Tribute is off cooldown (including any time or hits with Spellthief's Edge item Spellthief's Edge or Frostfang item Frostfang before the upgrade).
  • Its gold efficiency increases by 3.41% for every Stealth Ward icon Stealth Ward deployed, becoming gold efficient after deploying 5 wards and increasing indefinitely with each ward deployed afterwards.
  • If you're only buying Eye of the Watchers item Eye of the Watchers for the wards (although you might want to consider just Sightstone item Sightstone instead), it pays for itself in 30 wards:
    • Gold 2200 ÷ 75 = 29.33
