Stealth Ward is an item that reveals the fog of war when placed. After being placed, it is visible for 1 second, and then becomes invisible until its duration expires. Only 3 wards can be placed on the map per player.

Stealth Ward

Sight Ward item.png Stealth Wards have green tops as opposed to Vision Ward item.png Vision Wards, which have pink tops.


  • If you place a ward after you already have three out, the first one you placed is removed and a new ward is placed in the position indicated.
  • Wards placed into walls will jump to the nearest placeable location, as shown in this video.
  • Teleport.png Teleporting to the ward will reveal it for the duration of the spell.
  • Sight Ward item.png Stealth wards are only available for the Summoner's Rift map.
  • Wards have a cast range of 600. The only exception to that is Farsight Alteration item.png Farsight Alteration, which has a cast range of 4000.
  • The ward has 3 HP, and every attack will only damage it by 1. There is also no way to regenerate its health.
    • While some abilities, such as Evelynn Evelynn's Hate Spike.png Hate Spike, become active around and can target wards, they cannot actually damage wards without the ward being revealed by a Vision Ward item.png Vision Ward or a champion with a Sweeping Lens item.jpg Sweeping Lens.
  • Wards grant 30 gold when destroyed (including Ghost Wards from the sightstone items). If the player who reveals the ward and the killer of the ward are different players, the gold will be split 50/50 so each gains 15 gold.
  • Sight Ward item.png Stealth Ward used to be a consumable item. It was removed in patch 5.22.


Intelligent usage of wards goes a long way, namely in key brush locations, like intersections, in front of Dragon Dragon and Baron Nashor Baron Nashor. This is useful for map awareness of potential ganks, champion movements, and/or attempts to kill an Epic Monster. The lone shrub in front of both Epic Monsters is an excellent place to both reveal the river and keep tabs over their presence.

Wards that are placed on a Noxious Trap.png Noxious Trap will cause the mushroom to explode, a damage free method of removing them.

Certain characters with attack-timer refreshing abilities can clear wards in the moments after they are placed.

  • Shyvana Shyvana can use Twin Bite.png Twin Bite along with an autoattack.
  • Lucian Lucian can autoattack, then use Ardent Blaze.png Ardent Blaze or Relentless Pursuit.png Relentless Pursuit and his passive Lightslinger.png Lightslinger, on the next auto will strike twice.
  • Renekton Renekton can autoattack followed by Ruthless Predator.png Ruthless Predator, or use a Fury-enhanced cast of Ruthless Predator by itself.
  • Leona Leona can attack, activate and use Shield of Daybreak.png Shield of Daybreak, and immediately attack again. However the third attack is not automatic and must be ordered by the player.
  • Katarina Katarina can attack, use Shunpo.png Shunpo (which briefly reveals wards whether allied or enemy), and attack again.
  • Rengar Rengar can attack, use Savagery.png Savagery and then follow up with another autoattack or Empowered Savagery.png Empowered Savagery.
  • Jayce Jayce can use Hyper Charge.png Hyper Charge while in Cannon form to gain maximum attack speed for 3 attacks without the need to reset the attack timer.
  • Master Yi Master Yi can utilize his passive Double Strike.png Double Strike and an extra basic attack after, providing that the passive is triggered before or after the singular basic attack.

Lee Sin Lee Sin's Safeguard.png Safeguard, Jax Jax's Leap Strike.png Leap Strike, and Katarina Katarina's Shunpo.png Shunpo can be used to dash to allied wards. This can be used to move over walls, chase enemies, or escape.
