Similar Items

Strategy

  • As with other aura items such as Abyssal Scepter item.png Abyssal Scepter, Frozen Heart item.png Frozen Heart's debuff can give away potential ganks.
  • Frozen Heart item.png Frozen Heart is an item best suited for tank champions because of the high amount of armor and cooldown reduction but can also be useful for tanky support champions.
  • RyzeSquare.png Ryze is an excellent candidate for use with the Frozen Heart item.png Frozen Heart, since the damage of his abilities is increased with his maximum mana. The added mana and cooldown reduction also gives him extra sustainability in lane and the armor reduces physical damage taken.
  • WarwickSquare.png Warwick is also an good user of Frozen Heart item.png Frozen Heart, as the mana helps compensate for his mana troubles, the armor will make him much more durable and the aura will improve his already awesome dueling.
  • 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 MaokaiSquare.png Maokai, AmumuSquare.png Amumu, WukongSquare.png Wukong and SejuaniSquare.png 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, as well as NasusSquare.png Nasus, IreliaSquare.png Irelia, and OlafSquare.png Olaf, as well as some assassins, such as KhaZixSquare.png Kha'Zix.
  • Even if you don't need to slow the enemy's attack speed, the extra armor, mana and cooldown reduction may come handy against every AD champion.
    • This item can also be bought by manaless champions, should they wish the combination of cooldown reduction, armor, and attack speed reduction in one item. It may be better to buy Randuin's Omen item.png Randuin's Omen and/or Thornmail item.png Thornmail, though, as the mana from Frozen Heart is completely wasted.
  • For its combine cost of 650 gold, Frozen Heart item.png Frozen Heart gives 150 mana, 30 armor, 10% cooldown reduction, and an attack speed reducing aura.
  • Frozen Heart item.png Frozen Heart helps counter DPS carries like AatroxSquare.png Aatrox, TryndamereSquare.png Tryndamere, and ADCs in general, since they all rely on auto-attacks and the decreased attack speed will reduce their damage output.
  • Owners of Frozen Heart item.png Frozen Heart benefit greatly from the Oppression mastery, always having 2% damage reduction from all enemy champions in 700 range.
  • 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 ZyraSquare.png Zyra or JannaSquare.png Janna.

Trivia

  • Frozen Heart item.png Frozen Heart, Warden's Mail item.png Warden's Mail and its upgrade, Randuin's Omen item.png Randuin's Omen, are the only items that can reduce attack speed. The attack speed slow of Frozen Heart item.png Frozen Heart stacks multiplicatively with Warden's Mail item.png Warden's Mail and Randuin's Omen item.png Randuin's Omen, for a combined 27.75% attack speed slow.
  • The attack speed debuff affects champions, minions, and monsters, except for the Dragon, Baron Nashor, and Vilemaw, as they are immune to crowd control.
  • The icon used for Frozen Heart item.png Frozen Heart is the same icon from the popular online MMO game, World of Warcraft, used to represent a 'Citrine' gem. In this game, the gem appears orange.
  • The item's description "Warning: Do not thaw!" is a reference to the item Eye of Skadi from the mod DotA: Allstars, whose description contains exactly the same line.
  • The Frozen Brain item.png Frozen Brain was a seasonal item for the 2010 Harrowing celebration. It has the same stats as the Frozen Heart item.png Frozen Heart, just a different name and picture.
