Notes

  • This item was removed because it was a mandatory purchase on supports. This would limit their itemization, not only due to the gold spent, but also due to the need to dedicate a slot for this item. Despite being mandatory due to the wards, this item was actually inneficient in terms of stats, especially for non-tank supports. This item was replaced by a quest in the gold generation starting items for supports that, once completed, automatically transforms them into warding items, allowing supports to spend their gold into items that are otherwise more useful overall.
    • By extension, Ruby Sightstone item Ruby Sightstone was also removed. This decreased the amount of active item cooldown reduction that is possible to obtain.
