Tips[edit | edit source]

  • Sentry Wards' detection radius is quite large, making them useful for keeping an eye out on invisible heroes in key areas, given one has vision over that area.
  • Sentry Wards are commonly used to de-ward enemy wards, as they are able to detect their wards.
    • When dewarding, the ward is best placed so that its true sight reaches multiple common ward spots, so that it is more likely to spot enemy wards.
    • If an enemy ward location is known, the sentry ward is best placed so that the enemy won't find it when they try to de-ward the sentry wards, like between some trees, but still so that their ward is within true sight range.
  • Similar to Observer Wards, Sentry Wards can also be used to block neutral creep camps.

Lore[edit | edit source]

  • Knowing how to craft a ward is an important skill for artificers of magical goods. Rylai showed great talent at crafting wards, and once considered becoming an artificer.[1]
