FrozenHeartDebuff

A snowflake icon appears above the head of enemies affected by Frozen Heart's aura.

  • As with other aura items such as Abyssal Mask item Abyssal Mask, Frozen Heart's debuff can give away potential ganks.
  • Frozen Heart is an item best suited for Tank icon tank champions because of the high amount of armor and cooldown reduction but can also be useful for tanky Controller icon support champions as both tend on be middle of enemy team during teamfights thus spreading the aura. Examples include Maokai OriginalSquare Maokai, Amumu OriginalSquare Amumu, Wukong OriginalSquare Wukong and Sejuani OriginalSquare Sejuani.
  • The item also works well with champions that desire cooldown reduction, have mana problems and make very good use of the passive for extra dueling potential. Examples include Warwick OriginalSquare Warwick, as well as Nasus OriginalSquare Nasus, Irelia OriginalSquare Irelia, and Olaf OriginalSquare Olaf.
  • Frozen Heart is sometimes not recommended on Rammus OriginalSquare Rammus, as he relies on being hit with basic attacks in order to return damage to the enemy hitting him (particularly when a Bramble Vest item Bramble Vest or Thornmail item Thornmail is built). Since the frequency of this returned damage is reliant on the attacking unit's attack speed, Frozen Heart may inadvertently reduce Rammus' damage output slightly.
  • It might be also good item for manaless champions, should they wish the combination of cooldown reduction, armor, and attack speed reduction in one item. Though it may be better to buy Randuin's Omen item Randuin's Omen and/or Thornmail item Thornmail.
  • Frozen Heart is one of the few items to counter champions that work heavily around auto-attacking like Tryndamere OriginalSquare Tryndamere, and ADCs in general.
  • Liandry's Torment item Liandry's Torment counts the attack speed slow from Frozen Heart as a valid slow for its purposes, effectively increasing the former item's burn damage while enemies are within range of Frozen Heart's attack speed slow aura.
