Eye of the Herald (Legends of Runeterra)Eye of the Herald (Legends of Runeterra)

The Eye of the Herald is a neutral buff that is gained upon securing the eye that spawns after slaying Rift Herald Rift Herald. It is available only on Summoner's Rift icon.png Summoner's Rift.

The eye can be picked up by moving near it, and will otherwise disappear after 20 seconds. Only members of the team that killed the Rift Herald Rift Herald can pick up the eye.

The Eye of the Herald also replaces the trinket item in the trinket slot, which prevents purchasing trinket items until it has been consumed. Consume the trinket to summon an allied Rift Herald Rift Herald that aids your team.

All players are alerted by a cry as an audio cue for when the Rift Herald Rift Herald is summoned.
