Notes

  • The movement speed stat only increases flat movement speed, and will not interact with other percentage increases.
  • Spellblade deals Wit's End item proc damage, and thus will not trigger spell effects.
  • Spellblade is not blocked by Spell Shield spell shield if applied by a basic attack.
    • It is blocked if the effect is applied by an ability that triggers on-hit effects.
  • Spellblade can be Spirit's Refuge blocked (negates the damage, consumes the effect, and places it on cooldown) and Jax Counter Strike old dodged (prevents the effect from triggering altogether).
  • Spellblade is not affected by Critical strike icon critical strike modifiers.
  • Spellblade's bonus damage benefits from Life steal icon life steal, Omnivamp colored icon omnivamp, and Life steal icon physical vamp (this one excludes Lich Bane Lich Bane) but not Spell vamp icon spell vamp.
  • Spellblade's cooldown starts after the enhanced attack is consumed and consecutive ability casts refresh the duration of the enhanced attack.
  • Spellblade will trigger against structures.
  • Spellblade cannot trigger and will not be consumed against jungle plants.

  • Ability power changed to 80.
  • Movement speed changed to 10%.
  • Spellblade AP ratio changed to 66% AP.

Strategy

  • In comparison to other Spellblade items, Lich Bane Lich Bane is a more appropriate choice for magic damage dealers that also use basic attacks.
    • Champions that are hybrid, both physical and magic damage focused, may prefer Lich Bane Lich Bane over Trinity Force Trinity Force as it scales much better due to also having a scaling with ability power.
  • Lich Bane's Lich Bane's scaling with ability power separates it from Trinity Force Trinity Force as it does not necessarily need to be utilized by champions with high base attack damage to deal the most bonus damage. This does not mean champions with that luxury should not build it, as it does also scale with base attack damage.
