Morgana Morgana casting Soul Shackles Soul Shackles to tether herself to four enemy Champion icon.png champions.

A tether is an effect that creates a link between the source and the target(s) whose power can be dependent on the effective range and/or time linked. The link is broken beyond maximum range and if either the source or the target(s) Death.png dies. Some hostile tethers True Sight icon.png reveal the target, and tethers will also reveal the source if the target is a champion. Tethers persist through Playful.png untargetability. Spell Shield.png Spell shields can prevent the application of hostile tethers but not their after effects (this varies). Rebirth.png Dispel effects and the transformation into the Omen of Death.png zombie state will always remove tethers. The transition into the Realm of Death Realm of Death can break any existing tethers on differing targets.

Types of Tethers


A hostile tether is a link between a source and an enemy.



A friendly tether links between a source and an ally. It is reapplied instantly if the two become in tether range of each other again.
