Notes

  • The effect occurs a static delay after the basic attack was fired (independently of Melee role melee or Ranged role ranged), and will occur even if the attack was blocked (i.e Wind Wall Wind Wall) or it vanished (i.e Playful untargetability).
  • The effects occur on basic attack and do not interact with abilities that act like a basic attack (i.e Steel Tempest Steel Tempest, Parrrley Parrrley, ability granted Headshot Headshot).
    • Additionally, effects that cause you to attack more than once (i.e. Double Strike Double Strike, Lightslinger Lightslinger) will only be counted once, you cannot increase the frequency that Phantom Hit will occur.
    • Bolts generated by Runaan's Hurricane item Runaan's Hurricane even when hitting 2 additional targets will still count only as 1 attack towards triggering Phantom Hit and will not grant additional Rage's stack.
  • The attack that gets Guinsoo's Rageblade's stacks to 6 will benefit from the additional on-hit effect.
  • One-use on-hit effects, such as Siphoning Strike Siphoning Strike and Sheen item Sheen, remain one-use, as the on-hit effect will be consumed by the initial strike and be unavailable for the second.
  • It is important to know the difference between an on-hit effect (which Phantom Hit will apply) and an on-attack effect (which Phantom Hit will not), these effects are listed below.

Strategy

  • Guinsoo's Rageblade item Guinsoo's Rageblade's unique combination of traits make it something of a niche item. It is best on basic attack-based champions who benefit from both attack damage and ability power and rely on on-hit effects for a major portion of their damage (JaxSquare Jax, Master YiSquare Master Yi and KayleSquare Kayle). For such a champion, however, it is recommended to build the item as soon as possible, as the power spike it creates is usually enormous.
  • The Phantom hit will proc both Titanic Hydra item Titanic Hydra and Ravenous Hydra item Ravenous Hydra essentially doubling the area of effect damage, however the Titanic Hydra item Titanic Hydra is superior in this aspect as it also deals on-hit damage on the primary target.

Trivia

  • Guinsoo's Rageblade item Guinsoo's Rageblade is named after Steve 'Guinsoo' Feak, one of the main creative minds behind League of Legends and creator of Defense of the Ancients: Allstars.
  • Guinsoo's Rageblade is one of only three items that provide ability power alongside either attack damage or attack speed – the others being Hextech Gunblade item Hextech Gunblade and Nashor's Tooth item Nashor's Tooth.
  • Guinsoo's Rageblade was one of the last items released before the launch of League of Legends itself.
  • There once existed a bug that enabled SionSquare Sion to attain negative ability power and 2.5 attack speed with Guinsoo's Rageblade alone.[3]
  • The design is mostly similar to Kratos' blades (God of War franchise), both the Blades of Chaos and the Blades of Exile.
