Rod of Ages
Rod of Ages (Mythic Item)
- 60 Ability Power
- 300 Health
- 300 Mana
- This item gains 20 health, 20 mana, and four ability power every minute, up to 10 times, for a maximum of 200 health, 200 mana, and 40 ability power. Upon reaching max stacks, gain a level (Note: The level cap will remain at 18).
- Mythic Passive: Grants all other Legendary items 5 Ability Haste
The Rod of Ages will return to League and be the newest addition to the AP Mythic items. Like the previous iteration of the Rod of Ages, this iteration will also be a scaling item. The item will be quite weak early and will scale up to become one of the best mythic items in the game. Its mythic passive will also help with the scaling aspect of the item.
The bonus health, mana, ability power, and ability haste will make it an excellent item, especially for champions like Ryze, Anivia, Cho’gath, etc.
According to Riot Games, the changes will be coming to the PBE (Public Beta Environment) servers on Tuesday, October 4, 2022.
