  • Successive attacks with Blight Stone do not stack the debuff, but refresh the duration instead.
  • The target's armor is reduced before the attack damage is dealt, but still relies on the attack not to miss.
  • Works against wards and buildings, but does not work against allied units.
  • Fully stacks with the Corruption of Desolator icon.png Desolator.

Tips[edit]

  • Blight Stone is ideal for a ranged support or ranged carry to harass lanes during the early game.
  • Blight Stone is stronger if you can take advantage of how its armor reduction boosts all physical damage the target receives, such as that of your laning partner, lane creeps, or summoned units. It is less effective in more straightforward 1 vs 1 scenarios.
  • Blight Stone is useful for pushing towers early on, especially when used in tandem with the armor aura from Ring of Basilius (Active) icon.png Ring of Basilius and the assistance of additional allies.
