  • Forbidden Idol item Forbidden Idol's bonus healing and shielding passive stacks additively with Ardent Censer item Ardent Censer, Mikael's Crucible item Mikael's Crucible and Redemption item Redemption.[2]
    • It stacks multiplicatively with Spirit Visage item Spirit Visage, giving a 35% total increase when directly healing with the item.
  • The healing bonus only affects direct healings so health regen will be unaffected.[2]
  • The value of its passive can be theoretically determined on a per champion basis using the ability power scaling of heals and shields as a reference.
    • SorakaSquare Soraka's Astral Infusion Astral Infusion has a base healing of 80 / 110 / 140 / 170 / 200 and an ability power scaling of 60%. When healing is increased by 8%, this is increased by 6.4 / 8.8 / 11.2 / 13.6 / 16 and 4.8%, respectively. By converting the bonus base value into equivalent AP using the new total AP scaling, the value of the passive is approximately 9.88 / 13.58 / 17.28 / 20.99 / 24.69 AP. Using these values, the passive is worth approx. Gold 214.89 / Gold 295.365 / Gold 375.84 / Gold 456.53 / Gold 537, making the passive cost efficient by at least the second rank.
    • The conversion from bonus healing to AP is intentionally low-balled as the bonus healing/shielding does not actually contribute to other AP scalings.
