Frost Queen's Claim's base stats were 82.8% gold efficient.
The item becomes gold efficient in 31 minutes and 32 seconds without using Tribute, or after 26 hits against a champion or structure while Tribute is off cooldown (including any time or hits with Spellthief's Edge or Frostfang before the upgrade).
If you damage an enemy champion or structure 3 times every 30 seconds,tribute grants 15 per 10.
Plus 2 per 10 from the item, you can receive a total of 17 per 10.
Upgrading Frostfang to Frost Queen's Claim does not improve its ability to generate gold, other than by removing the passive disable when killing minions.
The upgrade from Frostfang costs 1350 and grants 1061 worth of AP and CDR. For the upgrade to be worth it, the active and the removal of the passive disabling when killing minions, must be worth 289. If the active gains or denies one kill, the upgrade was worth it.
Brand'sBlaze's explosion can create a chain reaction that can trigger the passive multiple times.
New Effect: Can only trigger Tribute once every 1.25 seconds.
Base mana regeneration reduced to 50% from 75%.
Ability power increased to 60 from 50.
New Effect: Quest.
Quest: Earn 650 using this item.
Reward: Tribute is upgraded into Queen's Tribute.
Queen's Tribute: Spells and basic attacks against champions or buildings deal 15 additional damage, grant 15 and 50% bonus movement speed for 1 second (additional stacks extend duration). This can occur up to 3 times every 30 seconds.
