Sheen is an advanced item in League of Legends.[1]


Sheen item
Gold 1050 (Gold 700)

Cost Analysis*

Gold Value

Gold Efficiency*

  • Sheen item.png Sheen is 58.73% gold efficient without its passive.
  • Optimal use of Spellblade makes this item at least 131.77% gold efficient on every champion. Spellblade must be used at least once every 6 seconds (on average) for the item to be considered gold efficient.

(Assuming a champion procs Spellblade every 1.5s, including an average casting time of 0.5s, that equals 2 seconds between each proc, or 0.5 damage procs per sec. This damage value is compared to extra on-hit damage whose procs scale with attack speed.)

100% base AD on-hit / (attack speed / 0.5) = BASE AD × 25 / (2 × ATKSPD)Gold .
(2 can be replaced with the number of seconds between each proc.)
The lowest value (using Orianna's Level 1 stats) is Gold 766.87 Total = Gold 1383.54

  • Sheen item.png Sheen (as well as Iceborn Gauntlet item.png Iceborn Gauntlet) only multiplies the champion's starting base attack damage plus any gained from leveling up. Bonus attack damage from items, runes, and masteries is not included, nor does it include the bonus damage from skills like Ezreal Ezreal's Mystic Shot.png Mystic Shot, Gangplank Gangplank's Parrrley.png Parrrley, Irelia Irelia's Bladesurge.png Bladesurge, or Shaco Shaco's Deceive.png Deceive.
  • If the attack is a critical hit, the bonus damage from Sheen item.png Sheen is not boosted.
  • Sheen bonus damage procs off life steal. It does not proc off Spell Vamp, however.
  • The proc has a cooldown of 1.5 seconds, and the 10 second bonus damage buff does not stack. Using two skills in quick succession will not accrue two stacks of bonus damage, but one.
  • The bonus damage does not stack with Iceborn Gauntlet item.png Iceborn Gauntlet, Lich Bane item.png Lich Bane, or Trinity Force item.png Trinity Force since they all have a unique passive with the same name.
  • Only the more damaging is used:
    • 1. Lich Bane item.png Lich Bane
      • 75% base AD + (50% AP) bonus magic damage.
    • 2. Trinity Force item.png Trinity Force
      • 200% base AD bonus physical damage.
    • 3. Iceborn Gauntlet item.png Iceborn Gauntlet
      • 100% base AD bonus physical damage.
    • 4. Sheen item.png Sheen
      • 100% base AD bonus physical damage.


  • The proc effect of Sheen item.png Sheen causes the champion's weapon or hands glow red, the same graphic as Nunu Nunu's Blood Boil.png Blood Boil.
  • Passive toggle abilities such as Blood Scent.png Blood Scent do not proc Sheen item.png Sheen's effect but active toggle abilities such as  Ravenous Flock.png Ravenous Flock do.
