Notes

  • Because killing minions disables the Tribute passive, Spellthief's Edge item.png Spellthief's Edge is best purchased on supports who are able to harass effectively in-lane.
  • The damage type of the bonus damage will match the trigger.
  • Area of effect abilities will use one charge per enemy champion hit.
  • On-hit effects will not trigger Tribute (although the triggering attack can).
  • Damage over time abilities will trigger Tribute once per instance of damage.
  • Killing a minion and damaging an enemy at the same time will put Tribute on cooldown without activating.
  • If you damage an enemy champion or structure 3 times every 30 seconds, the passive tribute grants Gold 8 per 10.
    • Plus Gold 2 per 10 from the item, you can receive a total of Gold 10 per 10.
