Altar Blue

An altar being captured

An altar is an area in the map, Twisted Treeline. There are 2 altars which are on opposite sides of the map. These altars are captured by simply standing on top of it for roughly 8 seconds. When captured, an altar is sealed for 90 seconds and provides the capturing team a buff that would help in the games progress.

Gameplay 编辑

When one altar is captured, it will grant +3 gold on kills, much like Loaded Dice Loaded Dice. When two altars are captured it will also grant +10% attack damage and ability power. Altars also give vision of themselves to both teams.

The altars each have their own sets of quotes upon being captured. Some of these quotes are specific to champions aligned with the Shadow Isles.

The amount captured decays over time (if a capture is interrupted) at the same rate as it increased regardless of how many champions opposed to the capture are present. A capture can be halted by having a champion opposed to the capturing team on the altar, but this only pauses the capture; in order to reverse the capture, the capturing champion(s) must be knocked off the altar. Capturing is unaffected by recalling (in that, a champion recall while capturing).

Unlike the Dominion towers, the capturing champion taking damage does not interrupt. To stop the seize of the altar an opposing champion must stand upon the altar in order to have an effect on the capture.
