  • Rabadon's Deathcap's ability power multiplier stacks recursively with other sources of ability power. Though it stacks additively with Dragon Slayer's and
    Guinsoo's Rageblade

  • Wooglet's Witchcap
    is Rabadon's Deathcap's counterpart on the Twisted Treeline.


  • This item resulted from a separation of the offensive and defensive abilities of
    Zhonya's Ring
    . This is the offensive item, while
    Zhonya's Hourglass
    is its defensive counterpart.
  • It was originally named Banksy's Deathcap in the Patch Day Preview. This is a tribute to David 'Banksy' Banks, a Riot Games Inc. Director of Platform Engineering.
  • The image artwork would seem to be based on the Sorting Hat from the Harry Potter franchise. There are eyes and a mouth-like band visible on the hat, very similar to the Sorting Hat.
  • Not counting other ability power items or runes, Rabadon's Deathcap gives 168 ability power alone. The upgrade from its parts grants 48 AP.
  • While it has the potential to be the single highest source of ability power in the game, Rabadon's Deathcap is rarely purchased first, as its passive ability requires other ability power items to be fully effective, to the point of the item being barely cost effective, which the large majority of expensive items are by a large margin.
  • It is also somewhat difficult to build early in the game as both of its components are quite expensive, making it difficult to purchase without kills or other gold income.

Cost increased. Ability power amplification increased. Recipe now includes Amplifying Tome.

"We wanted to preserve the total AP on a full offensive mage build, hence the ramped up amplification. Additionally, since Deathcap is now the "I want lots of AP" item, we figured we could push it a little harder."
