Announcement made by '''NeeksNaman''':<ref>[http://euw.leagueoflegends.com/news/ward-skins-coming-soon Ward Skins Coming Soon]</ref>
 
   
We’re excited to announce ward skins, a new customization option that allows you to change the appearance of your Sight and Vision Wards on the Fields of Justice. In keeping with the season, these ward skins are inspired by the haunting guise of the Shadow Isles. Activating a ward skin will transform your wards into ghosts, spooky trees, spiders, creepy stone statues, or pumpkin-headed bats with their own unique visual effects, sounds, and animations.

Here’s how they work. When you purchase a specific ward skin from the Wards tab of the League of Legends Store, it gets added to your inventory for one week. You can activate a specific ward skin to change the appearance of your wards in game. You can keep up to a year’s worth (52 weeks) of ward skins in your inventory at a time, so don’t hesitate to stock up if you have a favorite. Ward skins function the same as a regular Sight or Vision ward.

  +
  +
== General ==
  +
* A '''ward's''' vision does not extend over terrain.
  +
* The sight from '''wards''' is classified as allied vision, and will be lost while under the effects of {{tip|Nearsight}}. ''This includes wards that '''you''' placed.''
  +
** Newly set '''wards''' are not visible nor audible to ''nearsighted'' units outside of their proper {{tip|sight}} radius.
  +
* As of [[V7.16]], passively generated one-use on-hit effects, such as {{tip|Energized}}, {{ai|Power Chord|Sona}} or {{ai|Headshot|Caitlyn}}, will not be consumed when attacking wards. ''Some cases were not added until later and other missing cases should be reported as a bug.''
  +
** Activated on-hit effects and attack resets, such as {{ai|Power Fist|Blitzcrank}} and {{ai|Hyper Charge|Jayce}}, will still be consumed as the player is choosing to prime them.
  +
** {{cai|Tidecaller's Blessing|Nami}} will not be consumed when attacking wards.
  +
** {{cai|Flay|Thresh}} will also not reset the bonus damage when attacking wards.
  +
* If more than one allied champion is nearby when you kill a ward, all champions gain an equal share of {{as|133.{{recurring|3}}% of the experience}} bounty.
  +
* If more than one allied champion is involved in the kill, only the killer earns the {{g|Gold}} bounty. This is unless another ally is granting vision with a {{tip|Sweeper Drone}} or {{ii|Umbral Glaive}}, in which case both receive the full {{g|Gold}} bounty.
  +
** Effects such as {{ri|Zombie Ward}} and {{ri|Eyeball Collection}} will track assists even if no gold is earned.
  +
* {{ii|Warding Totem}} trinkets reach the break-even point between {{tip|Totem Ward}} duration and charge regeneration time at Level 14 with 11 seconds of overlap. At this level it is possible to always have another charge ready to use before the last ward placed with the trinket has expired of natural causes.
  +
** At level 1 {{ii|Warding Totem}} only has an uptime of {{fd|37.5}}% (90s duration, 240s recharge) but this is increased to {{fd|70.83}}% with the {{ri|Zombie Ward}} rune.
  +
  +
== Strategy ==
  +
;Placing wards
  +
* A '''ward''' placed outside a [[brush]] will not grant vision of the said brush. Placing a '''ward''' inside a brush will grant vision of the brush and of the surrounding area.
  +
* Placing '''wards''' near objectives such as {{ui|Dragon|Dragon pit}} or {{ui|Baron Nashor|Baron pit}} will give your team valuable informations as long as the ward is present.
  +
* Allied '''Wards''' (except Farsight and Zombie) can be targeted by {{si|Teleport}}, {{cai|Leap Strike|Jax}} and {{cai|Safeguard|Lee Sin}}. Note that doing so will {{tip|expose}} the ward for 2 seconds. ''Teleport's channel will continually refresh the exposure, but renders the ward untargetable until the channel completes.''
  +
** {{cai|Leap Strike|Jax}} can target any enemy ward, but does not deal damage.
  +
  +
;Removing wards
  +
* {{tip|Control Ward|Control Wards}} reveal and {{tip|disabled ward|disable}} others '''wards''' within their {{tip|Sight}}.
  +
* {{tip|Sweeper Drone|Sweeper Drones}} will {{tip|true sight|reveal}} and {{tip|disabled ward|disable}} ''stealthed'' wards within its radius, and highlight ''visible wards'' as a red silhouette. Note that the drone can see {{tip|expose|into brush}} and over terrain.
  +
* {{iis|Umbral Glaive}} passive, {{sbc|Blackout}}, triggers when you are spotted by a '''ward''' or ''stealthed trap''. While active, you {{tip|disabled ward|disable}} all nearby wards and {{tip|expose}} nearby ''stealthed'' wards and traps. Unlike a {{tip|Sweeper Drone}}, ''Blackout'' does not allow you to see over terrain or highlight other unseen units.
  +
** Note that ''Blackout'' will also trigger when spotted by a ''visible'' ward, potentially wasting the stealth detection effect.
  +
* {{ui|Scryer's Bloom}} grants {{tip|True Sight|vision}} of '''Wards''' hit for 12 seconds.
  +
* Wards take 1 damage when [[On-hit|hit]] by a basic attack, regardless of the attack's damage or on-hit effects. Abilities that grant attack resets or effects that cause you to ''hit'' twice will allow you to kill wards faster. For example:
  +
** {{ci|Fiora}} can basic attack then use {{ai|Bladework|Fiora}}.
  +
** {{ci|Shyvana}} can basic attack then use {{ai|Twin Bite|Shyvana}}.
  +
** {{ci|Lucian}} can basic attack, then cast {{ai|Ardent Blaze|Lucian}} or {{ai|Relentless Pursuit|Lucian}} and his passive {{ai|Lightslinger|Lucian}} will make him basic attack twice on his next basic attack.
  +
** {{ci|Renekton}} can basic attack followed by {{ai|Ruthless Predator|Renekton}}, or use a Fury-enhanced cast of {{ai|Ruthless Predator|Renekton}} by itself.
  +
** {{ci|Leona}} can basic attack, activate and use {{ai|Shield of Daybreak|Leona}}, and immediately attack again. However the third attack is not automatic and must be ordered by the player.
  +
** {{ci|Jayce}} can use {{ai|Hyper Charge|Jayce}} while in Cannon form to gain maximum attack speed for 3 attacks without the need to reset the attack timer.
  +
** {{ci|Master Yi}} can utilize his passive {{ai|Double Strike|Master Yi}} and an extra basic attack after, providing that the passive is triggered before or after the singular basic attack.
  +
* As of [[V6.13]], attacking a ward will no longer classify you as entering combat. For example, you will retain the bonus movement speed from {{ii|Boots of Mobility}}, {{ui|Cloud Drake}} and {{cai|Rock Surfing|Taliyah}}.
  +
* [[File:Ward Rubble.jpg|thumb|right]] When a ward is killed, times-out or is replaced, they leave behind {{tip|Ward rubble}} for 5 minutes. This can be used to gain knowledge of the enemy's warding habits.
  +
  +
[[File:Attack Resets|thumb|center|550 px]]
  +
  +
== Trivia ==
  +
* When a {{ii|Control Ward}} has been staying alive for 2 minutes and 30 seconds, it will gain the following buff:
  +
** {{sbc|Distinguished Order of Ward Longevity and Health:}} Perhaps this ward has been protected. Perhaps it has merely sat in a disused lane. Whatever the case, it has persisted for aeons in ward years and joins an ancient regal order of Wards that have lasted a really really ''really'' long time.

General Edit

  • A ward's vision does not extend over terrain.
  • The sight from wards is classified as allied vision, and will be lost while under the effects of Nearsight icon Nearsight. This includes wards that you placed.
    • Newly set wards are not visible nor audible to nearsighted units outside of their proper Sight icon sight radius.
  • As of V7.16, passively generated one-use on-hit effects, such as Kircheis Shard item Energized, Power Chord Power Chord or Headshot Headshot, will not be consumed when attacking wards. Some cases were not added until later and other missing cases should be reported as a bug.
  • If more than one allied champion is nearby when you kill a ward, all champions gain an equal share of 133.3% of the experience bounty.
  • If more than one allied champion is involved in the kill, only the killer earns the Gold Gold bounty. This is unless another ally is granting vision with a Sweeper Drone icon Sweeper Drone or Umbral Glaive item Umbral Glaive, in which case both receive the full Gold Gold bounty.
  • Warding Totem item Warding Totem trinkets reach the break-even point between Totem Ward icon Totem Ward duration and charge regeneration time at Level 14 with 11 seconds of overlap. At this level it is possible to always have another charge ready to use before the last ward placed with the trinket has expired of natural causes.
    • At level 1 Warding Totem item Warding Totem only has an uptime of 37.5% (90s duration, 240s recharge) but this is increased to 70.83% with the Zombie Ward rune Zombie Ward rune.

Strategy Edit

Placing wards
  • A ward placed outside a brush will not grant vision of the said brush. Placing a ward inside a brush will grant vision of the brush and of the surrounding area.
  • Placing wards near objectives such as DragonSquare Dragon pit or Baron NashorSquare Baron pit will give your team valuable informations as long as the ward is present.
  • Allied Wards (except Farsight and Zombie) can be targeted by Teleport Teleport, Jax OriginalSquare Jax's Leap Strike Leap Strike and Lee Sin OriginalSquare Lee Sin's Safeguard Safeguard. Note that doing so will Exposed icon expose the ward for 2 seconds. Teleport's channel will continually refresh the exposure, but renders the ward untargetable until the channel completes.
Removing wards
  • Control Ward icon Control Wards reveal and Disabled Ward icon disable others wards within their Sight icon Sight.
  • Sweeper Drone icon Sweeper Drones will True Sight icon reveal and Disabled Ward icon disable stealthed wards within its radius, and highlight visible wards as a red silhouette. Note that the drone can see Exposed icon into brush and over terrain.
  • Umbral Glaive item Umbral Glaive's passive, Blackout, triggers when you are spotted by a ward or stealthed trap. While active, you Disabled Ward icon disable all nearby wards and Exposed icon expose nearby stealthed wards and traps. Unlike a Sweeper Drone icon Sweeper Drone, Blackout does not allow you to see over terrain or highlight other unseen units.
    • Note that Blackout will also trigger when spotted by a visible ward, potentially wasting the stealth detection effect.
  • Scryer&#039;s BloomSquare Scryer's Bloom grants True Sight icon vision of Wards hit for 12 seconds.
  • Wards take 1 damage when hit by a basic attack, regardless of the attack's damage or on-hit effects. Abilities that grant attack resets or effects that cause you to hit twice will allow you to kill wards faster. For example:
  • As of V6.13, attacking a ward will no longer classify you as entering combat. For example, you will retain the bonus movement speed from Boots of Mobility item Boots of Mobility, Cloud DrakeSquare Cloud Drake and Taliyah OriginalSquare Taliyah's Rock Surfing Rock Surfing.
  • Ward Rubble
    When a ward is killed, times-out or is replaced, they leave behind Ward Rubble icon Ward rubble for 5 minutes. This can be used to gain knowledge of the enemy's warding habits.

Trivia Edit

  • When a Control Ward item Control Ward has been staying alive for 2 minutes and 30 seconds, it will gain the following buff:
    • Distinguished Order of Ward Longevity and Health: Perhaps this ward has been protected. Perhaps it has merely sat in a disused lane. Whatever the case, it has persisted for aeons in ward years and joins an ancient regal order of Wards that have lasted a really really really long time.
