Notes

  • Nomad's Medallion item Nomad's Medallion / Remnant of the Ascended item Remnant of the Ascended automatically transforms into Nomad's Eye item Nomad's Eye / Eye of Ascension item Eye of Ascension upon completing the Quest.
  • The quest reward can only be obtained after being out-of-combat for 5 seconds.
    • Upon completing the quest, the item holds 1 ward, visiting the shop is required to refill the wards.
    • Completing the quest send the following chat message to the team: "Summoner (Champion) Quest Complete! Completion Time: XX:XX"
  • If the last coin to drop was a gold coin, the next coin will be a mana coin. If the last coin was a mana coin, the next coin will be a gold coin.
  • The coin drop rate can be estimated to be about 1.8 per minion wave without siege minion.
    • From this, we can determinate the average passive gold value of Tribute: Gold 13.5 per 10 seconds.
    • On minion wave with siege minion, this is increased to: Gold 21 per 10 seconds.

Strategy

  • Because the Favor passive does not benefit the player who gets the last hit, Nomad's Medallion item Nomad's Medallion is best built on supports who plan on spending a lot of time in-lane.

Trivia

  • The item's caption references Miyuki 'Shurelia' Mitsuhashi, a former Associate Game Designer at Riot Games Inc. This was added in response to negative feedback that renaming Talisman of Ascension item Shurelya's Reverie was an attack on Shurelia's legacy.[2]
  • Champion takedowns will drop a coin that will chase your champion until it reaches them. After a certain duration, if the coin didn't reach your champion, it will disappear.[3]
