  • Some champions 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 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 aura abilities such as Fiddlesticks Fiddlesticks' and Morgana 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. Mordekaiser Mordekaiser's Children of the Grave.png Children of the Grave or Annie Annie's Summon Tibbers.png Summon Tibbers) can still be issued commands.
  • After using Twisted Fate Twisted Fate's Pick a Card.png Pick a Card, Twisted Fate can still select a card while in stasis.

  • Zhonya's Hourglass item.png Zhonya's Hourglass 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.* 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.
