Someone should do a guide just for this item, I'm getting sick of seeing people buy it on stupid champs like Lux, Xerath or Cassiopeia. Seriously, are you reading this item? Read what it does? Do you see it's range? Do you realize it's mostly good against burst damage because otherwise you'll get exposed to the enemy team? Can you not buy this on Ryze or Ziggs?

simply the ultimate tank-chopper item, also 10% CDr is just awesome, my main offensive item for cho'gath as he has long cooldowns, initiating with deathfire makes Q and W so bursty and allows him to face every tank nowadays

After that patch, its well on MAGIC DAMAGE team, because it up damage on target, so AP carry focusing can straight and fast kill an target with 20% damage boost.

This was definitely one of the updates about which I was worried. I was hoping they wouldn't kill it too hard, and they didn't. It's moreso a lead spell with damage amplification not dissimilar to Vlad's ultimate than it is another burst spell entirely. I'm a tad upset about the recipe "nerf", but the increased damage and reinstating of the CDR does make it just as it is currently intended: a lead into your other spells.

Fizz loves this item. Makes it so he doesn't have to burn his ult when killing squishes

[rabadon's deathcap] + [lich bane} + [Deathfire Grasp] is such a good core build on him

find a squishy have everything on smart cast. hold cursor over them press 1 press w press q a few smacks
then troll pole away as they die to the DOT

If you got a lot of ppl with HP, poor mr, or massive AP (Vigar) then you put this as your first attack then your rotation. So, your only hard part in deciding is take out the Carry or take out the tank?


Fun Fact:

This was the idea of the original Deathfire Grasp, letting every spell deal extra bonus magic damage based on the targets maximum health. It proved far too overpowered on casters such as Ryze, and was removed from the game. Some time later, after release, they remade Deathfire Grasp into (roughly) what it is now and reintroduced it to the game.

From League Wikia:
It would require 1875 AP for the active ability to deal 100% of the target's current health as damage. That is without factoring in magic resistance. This means that only Veigar could instantly kill a champion with the Deathfire Grasp. The most AP built from a different champion is 1250, this would only take out around 1/2 or 2/3 of the target's health.

Now with the patch, it's actually better if you don't need the mp5, its only worse in that it has 5% less CDR

I wish more people knew that this item is basically Morello's Evil Tome + an awesome active


A slightly worse Morello's Evil Tome with the stats to be exact. Yes the active can be really nice if you remember to use it, but all of the other stats are lower.

75AP down to 60AP
12 Mp5 down to 10 Mp5
20% CDR down to 15% CDR

Taking the 'mogs out of atmogs since 2009. Remember people, this is your key to unravelling those tanky fighters. It's SUCH an underrated item, so use it!

i made a Brand guide and use Will of Ancients + Deathfire Grasp. its actaully really well put together since you get Spell Vamp. Will of Ancients is real important.

I'm considering using this for my Brand guide in the place of Will of the Ancients, but I'm not entirely sure yet. Play testing will be necessary.

yes and no. it does unstealth, but it doesn't proc the slow that she now has. you'd have to auto-attack then hit it.

This item is my favorite in the game hands down! One shot with this helps me melt any character in the game no matter how high there HP is. I use this item with Veigar and Malzahar "EVERY" game.
