Farsight Alteration is a trinket item in League of Legends icon League of Legends. Level 9 required to purchase.


  • Farsight Ward icon Farsight Ward:
    • Is untargetable to allies, so it is not a valid target to allied unit-targeted effects.
    • Has a smaller sight radius (500 units) than Totem Ward icon Totem, Control Ward icon Control, and Stealth Ward icon Stealth Wards (900 units), and has 1 health compared to 3 for those ward types.
    • Grants 15 Gold 15 and 19 / 24.8 experience to the enemy that destroys it.
    • Does not count towards the maximum ward limit and lasts forever.
  • Placing the ward displays a brief VFX which is visible to the enemy team through the fog of war but not on their minimap.
  • Trinkets count as active items and their cooldowns will be affected by item haste.
  • Enemy champions revealed by the ward are automatically pinged on the mini-map.

Exchangeable with

Old icons


  • 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 limit was likely added in order to prevent the game from crashing from too many wards being present on the map at a time.
