Strategy

  • Relic Shield item.png Relic Shield is typically purchased by melee supports such as AlistarSquare.png Alistar, BraumSquare.png Braum, LeonaSquare.png Leona, NunuSquare.png Nunu, and TaricSquare.png Taric, who benefit from the durability it provides and can utilize the execution aspect of the Spoils of War passive.
  • Relic Shield item.png Relic Shield is occasionally purchased by both champions in a double-bruiser lane, forgoing early damage for the sustain and extra gold the item provides.

Notes

  • The Spoils of War does not provide the wearer any actual gold. All gold generated is given to allies instead.
  • Triggering the Spoils of War passive adds +1 to the creep score of the allied champion who receives the bonus gold.
  • The execute health threshold is affected by the bonus damage from critical strikes and other autoattack modifiers (like GangplankSquare.png Gangplank's Parrrley.png Parrrley), but not from Sheen item.png Sheen.
  • The Spoils of War passive is triggered no matter what method is used to kill the minion, but the execution aspect of the ability only works with melee autoattacks.
  • On Summoner's Rift, assuming Relic Shield item.png Relic Shield's user kills the most valuable minions available, it provides:
    • 5.5 gold per 10 seconds to the user and to the lane partner before the 20-minute mark.
    • After 20 minutes, it provides 6.6 gold per 10 to the user and to the lane partner.
  • On Summoner's Rift, assuming Relic Shield item.png Relic Shield's user kills one minion every 60 seconds, it provides 3.3 health regen per 5 seconds to the user and to the lane partner.
