Frostfang is an advanced item in League of Legends.
- 82.5% gold efficient.
- For the item to be gold efficient, Tribute must be worth at least 148.75 which means hitting an enemy champion or tower more than 9 times.
- The item becomes gold efficient in 12 minutes and 24 seconds without Tribute, or after 10 hits against a champion or structure while Tribute is off cooldown.
- Because killing minions disables the Tribute passive, is best built on supports who are able to harass effectively in-lane.
- If you damage an enemy champion or structure 3 times every 30 seconds, the passive tribute grants 15 per 10.
- Plus 2 per 10 from the item, you can receive a total of 17 per 10.

- Area of effect abilities will use one charge per enemy champion hit.
- On-hit effects will not trigger Tribute (although the triggering attack can).
- Damage over time abilities will trigger Tribute once per instance of damage.
