Gwen negates all attacks by Monster icon.png monsters outside of the mist.

Info
  • Hallowed Mist's Fizz Playful.png untargetability does not apply to Monster icon.png monsters nor Turret icon.png turrets, meaning they are allowed to gain aggro against Gwen and attack her regardless of being in the mist or not.
    • However, Gwen will not take damage from monsters that hit her and are outside of the mist.
  • Hallowed Mist does not grant untargetability to enemy Annie Summon- Tibbers.png pets inside the zone even if their source is not.
  • All Projectile.png projectiles targeted at Gwen by enemy champions outside the mist are Bullet strikethrough.png destroyed upon attempting to pass through the mist or being inside the mist.
    • Targeted projectiles sourced by minions or monsters will not be destroyed and can still hit Gwen even if they are outside of the zone.
  • If Gwen Dash.png dashes out of the area, the mist will automatically move to the dash's destination instead of Gwen's location.
    • The mist will stop moving immediately if the dash is interrupted.
  • The recast will move the mist's center 75 units through Gwen's location at the time.
    • If she is Dash.png dashing, the mist will move 75 units through her dash destination instead.
  • The mist will teleport to Gwen's location if she Flash.png blinks a far distance.
  • Enemy champions outside the mist are indicated with a broken sword.

    • The width of all needle missiles decreases with their distance travelled, forming an approximately triangular missile hitbox.
