A promoted caster minion, along with 2 normal caster minions for comparison

Casting Promote on a lane minion (excluding Super minions Super minions) grants it Turret Shield and Promoted. All gold Gold gold gained by the minion goes to the champion who promoted it.

  • Turret Shield:
  • Promoted
    • Reduces damage received from enemy champions by 40%.
    • Gains 100% bonus damage against turrets.
    • Grants gold Gold gold for its kills to the caster.
    • Increased size.
    • Bonus stats:
Map Minion Bonus health Bonus attack damage Bonus attack speed Bonus armor Bonus magic resist
Summoner's Rift icon Summoner's Rift
Twisted Treeline icon Twisted Treeline
Melee minion Melee minion 600 50 90% 40 40
Caster minion Caster minion 400 75 25% 40 40
Siege minion Siege minion 600 100 0% 100 100


  • On Summoner's Rift:
    • Promoting a melee minion melee minion will greatly increase its attack speed and attack damage, alongside other defensive stats, making it best at last hitting.
    • Promoting a caster minion caster minion will give it the least bonus stats of the three, but because it has the highest range, it is best used to offer more aggro damage if the enemy attacks its ally.
    • Promoting a siege minion siege minion will make it really tanky, and slightly increase his DPS, making it a tanky self-pushing minion. Due to the difficulty of destroying the siege minion and the heavy attack damage it brings, it can potentially net last hits without even thinking about it as well and last a long time causing it to inevitably reach the enemy turret if left unhindered.
