Notes

  • The quest reward can only be obtained after being out-of-combat for 5 seconds.
  • On-hit effects will not trigger Tribute (although the triggering attack can).
  • "Receive diminishing gold from excessive minion kills": Farming more than 20 CS per 5 minutes (3 out of 10 waves) reduces gold from minions by 50%. The penalty increases with further CS to a max of 80% reduction at 50 minions. Once the penalty kicks in, your CS gold is reduced to (70 - CS within 5 minutes)%.
  • Having a support item to tier 2 or tier 3, selling it, and buying another support item will automatically upgrade that item to the respective tier.
