Practice Tool icon

Practice Tool is a single player game mode in League of Legends. Released in V7.3, the game mode was specifically designed to allow players to interact with training dummies and enable cheats on Summoner's Rift icon Summoner's Rift.

General

A simple, straight forward, single-player environment that lets you test out things like checking wall Flash Flash points or if you can solo DragonSquare Dragon with a certain item build, without having to manually spend time experimenting in Custom games.

As League gains more and more similarities to a sport, it makes sense that there be a place where you can go to shoot hoops!

Bots

Only one bot is available to participate in the practice session for training purposes. It is totally optional and can only be picked as an enemy. Its intelligence can be ranked only from Beginner or Intermediate.

Dummy

Dummy is a unit type that can be directly summoned in Practice Tool, it stands in as a champion for all intents and purposes.

Upon taking damage from a champion, the Dummy will track total damage, damage per second, and last tick of damage value. Dummy health can be seen dropped, but they cannot die (similar to Undying Rage Undying Rage's buff). After 3 seconds of not taking damage (remaining time displayed visually by the dummy's resource bar), the damage tracking is reset and the dummy health is restored to full.

Using practice tool commands, player can change maximum health and resistances only of an enemy dummy. Dummies gain up to +100% increased size based on bonus health, with the maximum size capped at 10,000 health (130 gameplay radius). Ally dummies always have 1000 maximum health and 0 resistances. A dummy can take a maximum 900 damage from any attack.


Commands

Commands, or cheats, are functions that help players in testing. It can be a resource free, instant refresh spells so you can practice landing them. Or you can summon jungle camps repetitively to test the best jungle route.

Particulars

  • Kayn OriginalSquare Kayn's The Darkin Scythe Transformation - Using the Kill Player Champion button during the transformation will not grant Kayn his new abilities nor update the animations accordingly for which form he chose. He will however be given the champion model for Rhaast OriginalSquare Rhaast / Shadow Assassin OriginalSquare Shadow Assassin.
  • Kindred OriginalSquare Kindred's Mounting Dread Mounting Dread - Says it cannot be stacked.
  • Twitch OriginalSquare Twitch's Spray and Pray Spray and Pray - If the ability is cast again before the effect has ended, it will refresh the stat buff (bonus AD and bonus range) but Twitch will fire standard attacks instead of the bolts.
  • Mordekaiser OriginalSquare Mordekaiser's Realm of Death Realm of Death - Taking a dummy (without any bonus health) into the realm and dealing more damage than its maximum health (possible by Obliterate Obliterate with very high ability power) will kill it.
  • Urgot OriginalSquare Urgot's Fear Beyond Death Fear Beyond Death can also kill a dummy.
