Notes

  • The Spoils of War provides wearer and allies with actual gold.
  • Triggering the Spoils of War passive adds +1 to the creep score of the allied champion who receives the bonus gold.
  • The execute health threshold is affected by the bonus damage from critical strikes and other autoattack modifiers (like Gangplank Gangplank's Parrrley.png Parrrley), but not from Sheen item.png Sheen.
  • The Spoils of War passive is triggered no matter what method is used to kill the minion, though the execute can only be triggered with melee autoattacks.
  • The Deadly Phalanx active can be cast on yourself.
  • The shield changes colors (from blue to yellow) right before it explodes. As an enemy, you can use this visual indication to avoid the explosion.
  • You can save the four charges and kill four or more minions, and heal nearby allied champions for around (50+20) per charge. This mass heal can help tremendously in a teamfight.
  • On Summoner's Rift, assuming Face of the Mountain item.png Face of the Mountain's user kills the most valuable minions available, it provides:
    • Gold 8.9 per 10 seconds to the user, while also sharing that same gold with the lane partner.
    • Between 20 and 35 minutes, it provides Gold 10 per 10 to the user, while also sharing that same gold with the lane partner.
    • After 35 minutes, it provides Gold 13.3 per 10 to the user, while also sharing that same gold with the lane partner.
  • On Summoner's Rift, assuming Face of the Mountain item.png Face of the Mountain's user kills one minion every 30 seconds, it provides 8.33 health regen per 5 seconds to the user and to the lane partner.
