Strategy

  • Randuin's Omen item.png Randuin's Omen is a strong counter against auto-attack reliant champions that rely on crits like Ashe Ashe, Tristana Tristana or Twitch Twitch.
  • Given it's stats, it's most useful for tanks and fighters that expect having to take on a marksman's damage for an extend period of time.
  • Against the average marksman with 50% critical chance and Infinity Edge item.png Infinity Edge, Randuin's Omen item.png Randuin's Omens critical strike damage reducing passive results in a ~14% damage reduction towards non-onhit auto-attack damage.
  • Similarly, Randuin's Omen item.png Randuin's Omens Cold Steel reduces a champions auto-attack damage by 15% for all auto-attacks after the first for 1 second.

  • Using the active on Randuin's Omen while your champion is channeling an ability will end the channel prematurely.
  • Randuin's Omen's +20% Critical strike icon critical strike damage reduction no longer affects enhanced damage where the damage is presented with the symbol of Critical strike icon critical strike, making this item not effective against champions with abilities with enhanced damage (such as Karthus Karthus' Lay Waste.png Lay Waste when hitting one target, or Anivia Anivia's Frostbite.png Frostbite right after the target is hit by a fully-formed Glacial Storm.png Glacial Storm or Flash Frost.png Flash Frost).
