Patch History


Health and cost down. Recipe changed.

Banshee’s Veil offers an entirely unique effect in the item lineup, but its similar price-point and statline to Spirit Visage do more harm than good for BV’s chances of actually being purchased. Normally too expensive compared to its cousin, we’re shrinking Veil to be the earlier buy that guards against a burst mage gone wild, with an accordingly slimmer stat line. This makes it less effective in a full item build if you’re aiming for pure defense, but more accessible for those in need of a spell shield on a budget.

TOTAL COST : 2900 gold 2450 gold
BUILD PATH : Spectre’s Cowl + Negatron Cloak + 530 gold
HEALTH : 500 300


TOTAL cost : 2700 gold 2900 gold
BUILD path : Spectre's Cowl + Crystalline Bracer + 1150 gold
health : 450 500
MAGIC resist : 60 70

brace yourselves

Crystalline Bracer’s a neat but underused component, so we’re stickin’ it into more items.

Banshee's Veil takes longer to recharge

"The low cooldown on Banshee's Veil's spell shield allows it to be 'up' for the arrival of every new minion wave, which makes it a little too strong in evenly matched scenarios where one team is trying to siege out the other under a tower. "
