Notes

  • Guinsoo's Rage's attack counter and empowered effect both occur on-attack, not on-hit. The item will not interact with abilities that apply on-hit effects (e.g. Bladesurge Bladesurge, Mystic Shot Mystic Shot, Infinite Duress Infinite Duress).
    • Additionally, effects that cause you to attack more than once (i.e. Ranger's Focus Ranger's Focus, Double Strike Double Strike and Lightslinger Lightslinger) will only be counted once, you cannot increase the frequency that Phantom Hit will occur.
    • Bolts generated by Runaan's Hurricane item Runaan's Hurricane even when hitting 2 additional targets will still count only as 1 attack towards triggering Phantom Hit and will not grant additional Rage's stack.
  • The attack that gets Guinsoo's Rageblade's stacks to 6 will benefit for the additional on-hit effect.
  • For all intents and purposes, Phantom Hit is identical to Runaan's Hurricane item Runaan's Hurricane except that the "additional bolt" will target the same enemy as your attack target and will not deal modified base damage.
  • One-use on-hit effects, such as Siphoning Strike Siphoning Strike and Sheen item Sheen, remain one-use, as the on-hit effect will be consumed by the initial strike and be unavailable for the second.
  • Guinsoo's Rageblade ability power multiplier stacks recursively with other sources of % ability power other than Rabadon's Deathcap item Rabadon's Deathcap's and Dragon Slayer buff Dragon Slayer's with whom it doesn't stack.
  • The attack damage multiplier stacks recursively with other sources of % attack damage other than Whisper Whisper and Dragon Slayer buff Dragon Slayer's with whom it stacks multiplicatively.
  • It is important to know the difference between an on-hit effect (which Phantom Hit will apply) and an on-attack effect (which Phantom Hit will not), these effects are listed below.

Strategy

  • Guinsoo's Rageblade item Guinsoo's Rageblade's unique combination of traits make it something of a niche item. It is best on basic attack-based champions who benefit from both attack damage and ability power and rely on on-hit effects for a major portion of their damage (JaxSquare Jax, VarusSquare Varus and KayleSquare Kayle). For such a champion, however, it is recommended to build the item as soon as possible, as the power spike it creates is usually enormous.
  • Master YiSquare Master Yi in particular has a very good synergy with this item because of his passive Double Strike Double Strike which allows him to apply an additional on-hit effect per attack without Guinsoo. With Guinsoo not only will he reduce the attacks to proc Double Strike Double Strike but depending on the timing of his passive with Guinsoo he'll be procing on-hit effects:
    • Twice on each basic attack.
    • Thrice on each other basic attack.
  • The Phantom hit will proc both Titanic Hydra item Titanic Hydra and Ravenous Hydra item Ravenous Hydra essentially doubling the area of effect damage, however the Titanic Hydra item Titanic Hydra is superior in this aspect as it also deals on-hit damage on the primary target.
