Vision Ward is a consumable item in League of Legends.[1]  Vision wards are limited to 2 per player inventory as well as only one placed on the map per player.

Vision ward

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

Objects revealed

Unlike Sight Ward item.png Stealth Wards, Vision Ward item.png Vision Wards allow a team to see invisible champions and objects like:


  • Vision wards are visible at all times and have 4 HP. Every attack done to it will only damage it by 1. It also regenerates 1 health every 3 seconds when it has been out of combat for 5 seconds.
  • A summoner can Teleport.png Teleport his or her champion to a vision ward.
  • Vision Ward item.png Vision Wards are unavailable for the Twisted Treeline and the Howling Abyss maps.
  • Wards grant 30 gold when destroyed. 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.
  • Wards grant 30 experience when killed. (15 for blue wards)


  • If you are up against an enemy team with at least one stealth champion place the Vision Ward item.png Vision Ward at key points in your lane to prevent being ganked, or against a champion such as Akali Akali who relies on stealth to avoid damage.
  • It is most beneficial to place a Vision Ward near high priority targets which will probably be warded, like Baron Nashor Baron Nashor or Dragon Dragon or at a location of a known ward.
