Largo’s Guide to Glacial Augment

Glacial Augment Keystone in League of Legends


What is Glacial Augment ?


Immobilizing an enemy champion will cause 3 glacial rays to emanate from them towards you and other nearby champions, creating frozen zones.

Benefits of using Glacial


Why would you use it? Let me list some benefits:

  1. Annoy enemies – personnaly thats enough for me
  2. Reduce 15% enemy damage – that is 25 sec cooldown for mini exhaust
  3. Allow teammates to land skillshots – you know your team needs help
  4. Initiate and control the fight – it’s makes you MVP and easy LPs
  5. Free boots – for those who like saving 300 gold
  6. Free cookies – best cookies in the game

Champions that can use Glacial Augment


Any champion that has hard CC can use Glacial Augment Keystone. Here I will list the top 10 champions in League of Legends that do well with this keystone.

top 10 champions

with glacial augment keystone

Ivern, Janna, Maokai, Swain, Lissandra, Shaco, Brand, Vex, Twitsed Fate, Leona…

Ivern


Ivern has perfect synergy with Glacial Augment Keystone since he is building support items and enables the team to go in. When allies go in while there are frozen rays on the ground they take reduced damage from enemies. Daisy can trigger keystone with her empowered auto-attack.

Items for Ivern:

  • Moonstone Renewer
  • Redemption
  • Staff of Flowing Water
  • Ardent Censer
  • Fimbulwinter

Janna


Janna is in class “extremely annoying champs”. She will kite and make your life miserable if you try to reach her. She can build Imperial Mandate and give the team extra damage. Frozen rays are also making enemies affected by Imperial Mandate and damage reduction for any ally that engages.

Items for Janna:

  • Imperial Mandate
  • Redemption
  • Staff of Flowing Water
  • Ardent Censer
  • Mikael’s Blessing

Maokai


Maokai is a good engage tank with point and click CC. If your team can follow you into frozen rays they will receive less damage from enemies. You can always play AP version where you can use ult for disengage and trigger Glacial Augment.

Items for Maokai:

  • Frostfire Gauntlet
  • Fimbulwinter
  • Frozen Heart
  • Redemption
  • Spirit Visage

If you like free boots, buscuits, zombie wards and ultimate hunter this rune page and items are for you!

Understanding items


Remember that in order to use Glacial Augment Keystone you need to have a way to immobilize the enemy champion. Yes, you can trigger Glacial with Everfrost. You can use it to kite, to catch enemies out of position, or to make sure you land important CC (like Ahri’s Charm “E”). Glacial Augment also scales percentage slow best with healing and shielding items. That’s why Ivern is the best champion for this keystone in my opinion.

Understanding Runes


  • Magical Footweat – this makes you unable to buy boots but you dont have to spend gold on it
  • Biscuit Delivery – this is by far best form of “potions” in the game, they are ment to help your early laning phase
  • Cosmic Insight – It gives ability haste for both items and summoner spells
  • Zombie Ward – Glacial works well with support role and denying vision
  • Ultimate Hunter – let’s be honest, everybody likes to ult faster
