Blade of the Ruined King is a Mythical Tier Item.


  • Works well on AD Bruisers that lack any sort of ranged gap closer.
  • Works well with champions that have built in attack speed steroids, or tend to build attack speed.
  • Should be considered whenever at least one of the enemy champions is stacking health. Champions like  Dr. Mundo,  Garen, and  Olaf are examples of the type of enemy you should build the Ruined King against.


  1. Attack > Damage
  2. Attack > Attack Speed
  3. Attack > Life Steal

"We get a decent amount of 'bug reports' for Blade of the Ruined King, but they're mostly related to the fact that the active range of BotRK is slightly out of sync (that is, shorter) than basic ranged autoattack ranges. This item actually used to have a 550 range, but it was pretty terrifying on melee champions. That said, since we've reduced the active damage portion of this item, we think we can bring that range sync back."
  • ACTIVE CAST RANGE : 450 550

You can now lifesteal the bonus health damage you're dealing!

"Itemizing against tanky bros (and sisters) can be pretty difficult for an AD champion, so we're seeing if we can give a bit of love back to Blade of the Ruined King - the present day high-health AD tank demolishing item. Giving lifesteal to the on-hit passive means the more health your enemies stack, the more you'll be able to recover while kiting around. Now everyone gets a sustained combat pattern!"
