Strategy

  • Rabadon's Deathcap Rabadon's Deathcap is most suited for champions that have effects that scale with ability power (such as abilities, items, and runes), especially those with higher ratios.
  • Rabadon's Deathcap Rabadon's Deathcap is best purchased after having acquired a high amount of ability power.
    • This is because the item does not provide anything other than ability power in contrast to other items which provide unique bonus effects.
      • Those items may scale with and also grant ability power, thus Rabadon's Deathcap Rabadon's Deathcap becomes more valuable as it will make those items even more effective due to its large increase in the stat.
  • Given a situation where the user can purchase Rabadon's Deathcap Rabadon's Deathcap or Void Staff Void Staff, the choice between the two is highly dependent on the champion's ratios.
    • Rabadon's Deathcap Rabadon's Deathcap becomes a better purchase if the user would gain more damage from the large increase in ability power due to having high ability power ratios. Otherwise, Void Staff Void Staff is more optimal of a purchase as its passive will increase overall magic damage dealt in spite of ability power ratios.
  • While it has the potential to be the single best source of ability power in the game, Rabadon's Deathcap Rabadon's Deathcap is rarely purchased first, as its passive ability requires other ability power items to have maximum effectiveness, thus at low ability power it loses a lot of its potential cost effectiveness. It has the most difficult recipe of any item in the game. In addition, other items provide unique passives beyond a statistic that may prove to be much more useful than only gaining ability power. These facts render the item ineffective or even detrimental to build earlier in the game, where the arms race for useful purchases at convenient timings is the most important.

Trivia

  • Upon applying a Ornn's Ornn's Masterwork Masterwork upgrade to a Rabadon's Deathcap Rabadon's Deathcap owned by Ornn Ornn or Aurora Aurora, the item will transform into a Witch's Hat item Witch's Hat. The upgraded item will have a new icon and a caption that reads: "'Friend.' Yes, it is a funny word. Yet perhaps I understand its purpose."
    • It is also called Rabbitdon's (Deathcap), or weirding witch hat in the game files.
  • This item resulted from a separation of the offensive and defensive abilities of Zhonya's Ring Zhonya's Ring. This is the offensive item, while Zhonya's Hourglass Zhonya's Hourglass is its defensive counterpart.
  • It was originally named Banksy's Deathcap in the Patch Day Preview. This is a tribute to David 'Banksy' Banks, a Riot Games Inc. Director of Platform Engineering.
  • The image artwork would seem to be based on the Sorting Hat from the Harry Potter franchise. There are eyes and a mouth-like band visible on the hat, very similar to the Sorting Hat.
