  • Trap Detection doesn't reveal traps inside a brush unless you have vision in that brush.
  • Unlike many other item passives, the passive bleed damage from Lightbringer stacks with its component,
    Wicked Hatchet
  • Only critical strikes with basic attacks count for passive.


  • While the item did get removed from all normal game modes, it is still available while playing a Featured Game Mode on the Crystal Scar map, such as Ascension or Definitely Not Dominion.

Patch History[]

Patch 9.19

We've removed "The" from some item names and descriptions!

  • Black Cleaver
  • Black Spear
  • Bloodthirster
  • Dark Seal
  • Hex Core mk1 and mk2
  • Lightbringer
  • Obsidian Cleaver


Removed various starting, vision, and alternate-map-specific items.

This section's a bit of a grab bag, so we'll rapidfire a few explanations. First: we like the safe efficiency of Doran’s items, but not the inventory bloat of stacking them. We're replacing the Doran's series with the Guardian's items - see below. Next: Arcane Sweeper and Lightbringer were meant to balance out Howling Abyss's lack of wards, but ended up as permanent, mandatory counters to certain champs (even if their stats weren't desirable). We're retiring them and beefing up Oracle's Extract instead. Finally: Entropy and Wicked Hatchet were what we call 'trap' choices: they could be cool, but never lived up to their potential and were usually just wastes of gold. Sometimes a 'trap' item’s niche is interesting enough to go back and fill properly, but that's not the case here.

Now, say one final farewell to our departing friends!

FROZEN AND ALONE : The following items have been removed from Howling Abyss:

Doran's Blade

Doran's Ring

Doran's Shield

Arcane Sweeper

The Lightbringer

Orb of Winter


Wicked Hatchet


"Not having wards on Twisted Treeline adds a level of fear you'd expect from the Shadow Isles, but also means squishy champions don't have great ways of moving safely around the map. It also leads to (get ready for it) snowballing: when you’re ahead, you have more control over the map, more strength in a jungle fight, and less to lose from hanging out in a brush. We saw an opportunity to address some of these concerns with the trinket slot to give players more compelling choices than "facecheck the jungle or AFK at turret".
The immediate change below might not make sense here (we talk about how snowbally vision is, and then we remove vision granting items), but if you go one changelist below that, you'll see we're introducing a trinket! So... please read below.
