- When Deathfire Grasp was originally added, it was far too powerful on some champions and was temporarily removed.
- It was originally added in v0.9.25.24 with the following functionality: "Unique passive: When you hit a unit with a spell, you damage it for 10% of their current health(5% for multi target spells). Deals reduced damage if your last cast was fewer than 4 seconds ago."
- The item was reimplemented in v18.104.22.168 with a new functionality.
- Abilities such as
Poppy's Diplomatic Immunity or
Swain's Torment will increase the damage dealt by Deathfire Grasp.
