Notes

  • The quest reward can only be obtained after being out-of-combat for 5 seconds.
  • If the last coin to drop was a gold coin, the next coin will be a mana coin. If the last coin was a mana coin, the next coin will be a gold coin.
  • The coin drop rate starts at 0% and increases by 11.11% for every minion that dies (regardless of whether it drops a coin or not). When a minion drops a coin (including siege minions) the chance drops by 33.33%. This value can go below 0%.[2]
    • Because of the way this is done, for every minion wave (with or without siege minion), the average coin drop rate is 2 coins per minion wave.
    • From this, we can determinate the average passive gold value of Favor: Gold 8.33 per 10 seconds.

Strategy

  • Because the Favor passive does not benefit the player who gets the last hit, Ancient Coin item Timeworn Ancient Coin is best purchased on Controller icon supports who plan on spending a lot of time in-lane.
