[[File:Altar_Blue.jpg|thumb|298px|An altar being captured]]An '''altar '''is an area in the map, [[Twisted Treeline]]. There are 2 altars which are on opposite sides of the map. These altars are captured by simply standing on top of it for roughly 8 seconds. When captured, an altar is sealed for 90 seconds and provides the capturing team a buff that would help in the games progress.

== Gameplay ==
+
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.
When one altar is captured, it will grant +3 gold on kills, much like {{ai|Loaded Dice|Twisted Fate}}. When two altars are captured it will also grant +10% attack damage and ability power. Altars also give vision of themselves to both teams.
 
   
The altars each have their own sets of quotes upon being captured. Some of these quotes are specific to champions aligned with the [[Shadow Isles]].
+
== Capturing Altars ==
  +
When captured, an altar seals for 90 seconds during which it grants {{tip|sight|vision}} of the surrounding area and during which cannot be recaptured. Capturing an altar grants {{g|80}} to each member of the capturing team. Additionally, controlling an altar grants your team bonus effects.
  +
  +
* {{sbc|One Altar Controlled:}} 10% '''bonus''' movement speed.
  +
* {{sbc|Two Altars Controlled:}} Restore {{as|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).

Unlike the Dominion towers, the capturing champion taking damage does not interrupt. To stop the seize of the altar an opposing champion must stand upon the altar in order to have an effect on the capture.
+
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.

Altar Blue

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 Edit

When captured, an altar seals for 90 seconds during which it grants Sight icon vision of the surrounding area and during which cannot be recaptured. Capturing an altar grants 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.
