Season 4 inventory

The trinket slot as it appears in the season 4 inventory layout.

Trinkets are a category of items introduced in Season 4 and the preseason. They are placed in the trinket slot, which is independent from the player's main inventory and can only hold trinket items.[1]

Purchasing and Selling Trinkets

Trinkets can be found in the Vision & Trinkets category under Tools in the shop.

All trinkets are totally free, and can be swap between each other for no cost. However, changing a trinket will disable all trinket-use for 120 seconds even if another trinket is purchased, regardless of its type.

Upgrades

All basic Trinkets are granted lower cooldowns and increased effects as their owner gains levels. Additionally, you must reach level 9 or above in order to upgrade your basic Trinket into an advanced Trinket.

Strategy

  • Warding Totem item.png Warding Totem can be used to ensure the safety of nearby brush, or keep an eye on a position in the lane that could be quickly overrun by the presence of enemy minions.
  • Sweeping Lens item.png Sweeping Lens, Hextech Sweeper item.png Arcane Sweeper and Oracle Alteration item.png Oracle Alteration grants you True Sight icon true sight for the duration, revealing stealthed champions, and giving you the ability to disable any opposing wards and invisible traps, letting you counter the use of enemy trinkets and keep you and your teammates stealthed, and is a major counter to abilities such as Teemo Teemo's Noxious Trap.png Noxious Trap.
  • Farsight Alteration item.png Farsight Alteration grants you Sight icon sight in the cast range for 5 seconds while also placing a Farsight Ward item.png Farsight Ward in the middle of the casted zone indefinitely, it can be used to quickly reveal a zone without getting yourself in danger. Farsight Alteration item.png Farsight Alteration is often bought on ranged carries preferring a long range warding placement over a dangerous warding game. Seer Stone item.png Seer Stone has the same mechanic but will not place a Farsight Ward item.png Farsight Ward.

Limitations

  • Since there is only one inventory slot for trinkets, a player can only own one trinket at any given moment.
  • Selling a trinket will disable trinket use for 120 seconds even if another trinket is purchased.
  • Trinkets can be used as soon as they are bought, even in the 30 first seconds for the game.

Trivia

  • Trinkets were originally called "Relics" during their early stage of development.[2]
