Wriggle's Lantern was a legendary item in League of Legends.


  • If used immediately after cooldown, it provides approximately 4 gold every 10 seconds in ward buying costs
  • The ward does not reveal nearby stealthed units.
  • The ward lasts for three minutes.
  • The passive bonus damage is magic damage and does not proc lifesteal or spellvamp.
  • The proc from Madred's Razors does not stack with Wriggle's Lantern
  • Wriggle's Lantern is unavailable in the game mode Dominion.
  • This item is most often bought by jungling champions who need the passive bonus damage to help clear the jungle faster.
  • It is particularly useful for controlling Dragon and Baron Nashor as you can use the active to keep vision of the objectives and the bonus damage passive will help greatly decrease the time required to kill them.
  • Useful for junglers such as Lee Sin who can make good use of it's warding ability.
  • A ward gives 20 gold when destroyed.
    • The killer of the ward gains 50% of the ward's base gold value.
    • Nearby allied champions with Oracle's Elixir, or allied champions that placed Vision Wards nearby, split 50% of the ward's base gold value.

Patch History

  • Item removed.


  • COMBINE COST: 240 gold ⇒ 215 gold (total cost remains the same)

"When we designed Feral Flare, we looked at 'carry' junglers who picked up Wriggle's Lantern and looked for ways to support that playstyle. Then we released Feral Flare and realized we may have gone too far."

"While Feral Flare does deliver on its core goal of supporting carry junglers, it's also doing it at the expense of potentially several other players on the map. Because Feral Flare's power is essentially tied to how long junglers can ignore their team, the optimal strategy has been to hide away for as long as possible before making a first appearance as the strongest champion on the map - even in comparison to solo laners who have to scrap out their gold against equally matched opponents (we mentioned this in the foreword, but it's worth repeating here). Long-term, we still like the concept of 'carry' style junglers, but we're currently exploring ways to support them in a way that's healthy for the game."

  • "NEW" UTILITY: Kills and Assists now count toward transforming into Feral Flare
  • MAIM PASSIVE: +100 damage against monsters ⇒ +75 damage against monsters

We wanted to err on the stronger side with Feral Flare's release so that players could see exactly what it offered as a carry jungle item. That certainly hasn't been a problem, as it's performed extremely well thus far. Too well.

  • TOTAL COST: 1650 gold ⇒ 1800 gold
  • FERAL FLARE TRANSFORM: 25 large monster kills ⇒ 30 large monster kills

We're currently working on the Wriggle's line of items and, in patch 4.5, we'll be introducing an "evolution" to Wriggle's Lantern where it transforms into a more powerful item called Feral Flare when you accumulate a large number of monster kills. Once again, that item will hit in 4.5 but you can play with the minor Madred's and Wriggle's changes for now.

The specific goal here is to fill in the “missing link” of jungle items for basic attack reliant champions. We really want to give 'carry' junglers an item that focuses on a weaker early game for mid to late game payoffs.

Madred's Razors now gives attack speed rather than armor. Wriggle's Lantern now gives attack damage and a little more attack speed rather than armor and attack speed.
