|Active:||Consume a charge to place an invisible Stealth Sard which reveals the surrounding area for 60 - 120 seconds.
Stores on charge every 180 - 90 seconds, up to 2 maximum charges.
Ward duration and recharge time gradually improve with level.
The Warding Totem is a basic trinket. At level 9, as with all basic trinkets, the effects improve and players gain the ability to upgrade it in the store.
Once the staple trinket, Warding Totem's found itself feeling pretty mediocre compared to the Farsight Alteration. As we seek to adjust the balance between the two, dropping the lategame cooldown significantly ensures teams can access more consistent vision with a Warding Totem in their inventory.

THIS ONE'S SPECIAL : Farsight Totem's ward doesn't count against your ward limits
- Trinket wards now benefit from ward skins.
- Trinket wards feature the small yellow circle previously used by Sight Wards.
- START COOLDOWN:
120 seconds ⇒ 30 seconds
A lot of players were relying on the early Warding Totem to protect standard invade paths, which ended up preventing meaningful aggression. We like that invading can be a team strategy, so we're hoping this helps out. Plus, lowering the swap cooldown for trinkets should allow for more flexibility.
- START COOLDOWN:
90 seconds ⇒ 120 seconds
- SWAP COOLDOWN:
180 seconds ⇒ 120 seconds
- Places a Stealth Ward for 60 seconds (120 second cooldown). Limit 3 Stealth Wards on the map per player. Transforms into a Greater Totem at level 9.
