An altar being captured

An altar is an area in the Twisted Treeline that grants vision and a powerful buff to the team that controls it. There are two altars on opposite sides of the map. A champion captures an altar by standing on top of it for 9 seconds. When more champions stand on a single altar, it is captured in a shorter amount of time.

Capturing Altars

When captured, an altar seals for 90 seconds during which it grants Sight icon.png vision of the surrounding area and during which cannot be recaptured. Capturing an altar grants 80 Gold 80 to each member of the capturing team. Additionally, controlling an altar grants your team bonus effects.

  • One Altar Controlled: 10% bonus movement speed.
  • Two Altars Controlled: Restore 1% of maximum health on minion and monster kill.

Each altar has sets of quotes. Some of these quotes are specific to champions aligned with the Shadow Isles.

The amount captured decays over time (if a capture is interrupted) at the same rate as it increased regardless of how many champions opposed to the capture are present. A capture can be halted by having a champion opposed to the capturing team on the altar, but this only pauses the capture; in order to reverse the capture, the capturing champion(s) must be knocked off the altar. Capturing is unaffected by recalling (in that, a champion recall while capturing).

Altars spawn at 2:30 and are locked for 90 seconds upon capture, but can't be locked by the same team again, until control has shifted and the altar is then reclaimed.
