|Passive:||Unique: Gain +5 gold per 10 seconds|
Heart of Gold was an advanced tier item available in the Classic and Dominion game modes. It was removed in the v220.127.116.11 patch.
Often bought for passive gold generation. Normally used by support players who farm little or no minions, and later upgrade into the Locket of the Iron Solari or Randuin's Omen Legendary Tier Items.

- This item payed for itself after 27 minutes and 30 seconds. If you sell it, it takes 13 minutes and 45 seconds.
- It was the most expensive out of all the gold generating items.
- Although it is called Heart of Gold, it is much more similar in appearance to a turtle's shell. This is because of an obscure myth whereby gold or some assorted treasure can be obtained by breaking or prying open Turtle's shell.
- RIP HoG was a popular joke throughout early Season 3, as many players opposed the removal of it.
