  • In general, this item is good on:
    • Tanks and bruisers that are generally sitting on the middle of enemy team during teamfights, as they make the best use of the aura due to this (by affecting as many enemies as possible); and they are generally mana hungry. Examples include Maokai Maokai, Amumu Amumu, Wukong Wukong and Sejuani Sejuani.
    • Champions in general, that work well with cooldown reduction, have mana problems, and make very good use of the passive for extra dueling potential. Examples include the aforementioned Warwick Warwick, as well as Nasus Nasus, Irelia Irelia, and Olaf Olaf.

  • Liandry's Torment item.png Liandry's Torment stacks with Frozen Heart item.png Frozen Heart in 700 range, effectively doubling Liandry's Torment item.png Liandry's Torment damage. Useful on mage supports like Janna Janna or Zyra Zyra.
