  • Some champions can benefit from these few seconds to "fade to stealth" by stealthing then activating Zhonya's Hourglass. After emerging from the stasis, they will be fully stealthed.
  • Activating the active will cancel channeled abilities.
  • While Stasis is active, champions can still issue commands to pets (for exemple: AnnieSquare.png Annie).
  • Zhonya's Hourglass can help with taking down turrets as you will lose aggro when you become untargetable, meaning you don't need to waste time walking out of turret range for it to transfer targets, and makes it safer to stay under fire for a longer time.


  • Zhonya's Hourglass resulted from the separation of the offensive and defensive abilities of the removed item  Zhonya's Ring. This is the defensive item;  Rabadon's Deathcap is the offensive item.
  • The "Hourglass" in the name is a reference to the fact that by using its active ability, you are granted a few more seconds to live. Within those few seconds, your cooldowns will continue to drop and your team may come to help you.

Ability power increased.

Fiendish Codex is being tuned up in overall ability power to match Lost Chapter.

UPGRADED : Zhonya's Hourglass and Banshee's Veil also have 5 more total ability power.


COST : 2900 gold (unchanged)
BUILD PATH : Fiendish Codex + Seeker's Armguard + [800 Gold]
Stopwatch + 200 gold  

Less expensive, build path smoothed out. Ability reduced and cooldown increased. Now grants cooldown reduction.

Zhonya’s Hourglass struggles to maintain two very expensive characteristics: it’s a top-tier ability power item that also boasts one of the strongest actives in the game. Historically, this duality has forced us to lock Zhonya’s behind a steep price tag or awkward build path a usually both. There are other items which offer tons of ability power , but no other item shares Zhonya’s’ active, so we’re going all-in on its identity as a defensive utility item. That decision has allowed us to drop the price of Zhonya’s to the lowest it’s ever been in League history, making it more readily available in times its stasis effect is truly needed.

Hourglass is cheaper, but has less ability power.

"Zhonya's has always had a solid identity in the game, so it's just coming along for the AP adjustment ride."
