Farsight Alteration is a basic trinket item in League of Legends icon.png League of Legends. Cannot be purchased until level 9.


  • Farsight Ward icon.png Farsight Ward cannot be targeted by allies, so it cannot be used for ally-targeted spells such as Teleport Teleport.
  • Farsight Ward icon.png Farsight Ward has a much smaller (500) vision radius than other wards (900) and only has 1 health.
  • Farsight Ward icon.png Farsight Ward grants 15 Gold 15 and 15 experience when destroyed.
  • Using the Farsight Alteration Farsight Alteration has a brief visual effect which is visible to the other team through the fog of war but not on their minimap.
  • Farsight Ward icon.png Farsight Ward does not count towards the maximum ward limit and lasts forever, meaning an infinite amount of either could be placed at any given time.
  • The visual placement of Farsight Ward icon.png Farsight Ward can be seen by enemies even through the fog of war.
    • In Practice Tool only, the player may only place up to 20 Farsight Wards Farsight Wards. When placing another, the oldest one will be destroyed. This is to prevent the game from crashing by extensively flooding it with units.
