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 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.

If the trinket is not used before it expires, it will be consumed to summon the Rift Herald Rift Herald automatically. Similarly, if the trinket expires while the user is dead, it will be consumed on its own to summon the Rift Herald Rift Herald at their team's spawn.

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

Patch History

  • Updated icon.
  • New Effect: Upon picking up the Eye of the Herald Eye of the Herald, the holder and any of their allies who participated in slaying the pit Rift Herald Rift Herald gain an Empowered Recall Empowered Recall Charge. The charge is consumed once the next channel completes and lasts indefinitely otherwise.
  • New Effect: If the trinket expires before being used, it is automatically consumed to summon the Mercenary Mercenary after a 0.033-seconds delay.
  • New Effect: If the trinket expires while the user is dead, the Mercenary Mercenary is automatically summoned at their team's spawn.
  • New Effect: The Mercenary Mercenary now grants her kill credit to the champion who summoned her as well as the slayer's allies if they participated in her takedown as the pit Rift Herald Rift Herald.
  • New Effect - Rift Herald Rodeo buff Rift Herald Rodeo: After summoning the Mercenary Mercenary, the user or one of their allied champions can target the monster to immediately become Untargetable icon untargetable, Cosmic Radiance invulnerable, Unstoppable icon displacement immune, and Lockout icon 2 unable to act, and wind up for 0.75 seconds to You and Me! attach themselves to the monster and "ride" it for up to 12.5 seconds. Once a champion starts the ride, the monster also starts winding up for 0.75 seconds, during which the player may issue a movement command in order to select the charge's starting direction. After finishing the wind-up, the monster begins charging in the chosen direction. The rider can steer the monster in the direction of their cursor. Enemies in the path of the charge are dealt 250 true damage, and Airborne icon knocked up and Stun icon stunned them for 1 second. The charge stops at the end of the duration or when the monster collides with an enemy structure or terrain, causing it to lose 66% of its current health and forcing the champion to detach and Dash emerge from its back at a distance of 200, increased to 700 if they charged into a targetable structure. The emerge distance increases by 75% of the champion's total attack range.
    • The Mercenary Mercenary starts its charge at 150 movement speed and ramps up non-linearly to a maximum of 600 over the first 5 seconds. This is increased by 75% while charging towards an enemy structure.
    • If a starting direction for the charge is not chosen, the charge will default to the monster's facing direction.
    • Hitting a targetable structure with the charge deals the same damage as if the Mercenary Mercenary would charge into it herself, summons 5 (+ 1 − 6 (based on Touch of the Void Touch of the Void stacks)) Voidmites Voidmites that attack the nearest structure, and grants the emerged champion a Hybrid resistances icon shield that decays over 4.5 seconds.
    • This effect cannot be used again until the Mercenary Mercenary has assisted in destroying an enemy turret.
    • The monster cannot be ridden if it is in combat with a structure.
  • Bug Fix: Now once again flashes the player's screen in purple to indicate when the item is about to expire.
  • Pick-up window reduced to 20 seconds from 40.
  • Channel time reduced to 1 second from 4.
  • Undocumented: Channel can no longer be interrupted.
  • Bug Fix: Now properly has the 1 second lockout period that all trinkets have to prevent accidental usage.
  • Bug Fix: Only champions can pick up Eye of the Herald. Dashing as Yasuo Yasuo through it with Last Breath Last Breath or having the living shadow from Shadow Assassin's Shadow Assassin's Blade's Reach Blade's Reach stand on it no longer has those non-champion entities pick it up.
  • New Effect: Now goes on a 3-second cooldown during combat with non-minions.
  • Pinging the item now messages its remaining duration in team chat.
