Siege minions are ranged minions. One siege minion spawns every three minion waves between the Blue Melee MinionSquare melee and Blue Caster MinionSquare caster minions.


  • Siege minions have Anti-Tower Socks item Anti-Tower Socks, which is a cosmetic item that indicates that they lose 14 / 11 / 8% (based on turret type) maximum health per turret shot.
  • Their gold reward starts at Gold 60, and increases by Gold 3 every 90 seconds. This is capped at Gold 90.
  • After minions spawn they upgrade every 90 seconds increasing their health, gold reward and AD. At the fifth upgrade they change their health scaling. Other than their gold reward, their stats increase infinitely.
  • After 15 minutes, siege minions spawn once every 2 waves and from the 25th minute onward, siege minions spawn every wave to accelerate the game pace by making pushing easier.
  • While under the effect of Hand of Baron buff Hand of Baron or Crest of Crushing Wrath buff Crest of Crushing Wrath, siege minions can out-range turrets.
