Trivia

Hourglass screenshot

  • This item resulted from the separation of the offensive and defensive abilities of the removed item Zhonya's Ring item.png Zhonya's Ring. This is the defensive item; Rabadon's Deathcap item.png Rabadon's Deathcap is the offensive item.
  • Along with Rabadon's Deathcap item.png Rabadon's Deathcap and Luden's Echo item.png Luden's Echo, this item offers the highest amount of ability power (not taking into account that Rabadon's Deathcap item.png Rabadon's Deathcap's passive, which works with itself).
  • The "Hourglass" in the name is a reference to the fact that by using its active ability, you are granted a few more seconds to live. Within those few seconds, your cooldowns will continue to drop and your team may come to help you.
  • Champions like TwitchSquare.png Twitch can benefit from these few seconds to "fade to stealth" by stealthing then activating Zhonya's Hourglass item.png Zhonya's Hourglass. After emerging from the stasis, they will be fully stealthed.
  • Zhonya's Hourglass item.png Zhonya's Hourglass can help with taking down turrets as you will lose aggro when you become untargetable, meaning you don't need to waste time walking out of turret range for it to transfer targets, and makes it safer to stay under fire for a longer time.
  • Activating the active will cancel channeled abilities; however, non-channeled area abilities such as FiddlesticksSquare.png Fiddlesticks's and MorganaSquare.png Morgana's ultimates will continue, making Zhonya's Hourglass particularly powerful when used in the middle of an enemy team, allowing them to continue doing damage while being invulnerable to counterattack.
  • While Stasis is active, any pets the user currently has (e.g. MordekaiserSquare.png Mordekaiser's Children of the Grave.png Children of the Grave or AnnieSquare.png Annie's Summon- Tibbers.png Summon Tibbers) can still be issued commands.
