[League of Legends / LoL] Trinkets Basic Guide

This page contains an introduction to Trinkets in League of Legends (LoL), including their uses, purchasing and upgrading them, and their various kinds.

Trinkets Basic Guide

Making their debut during Season 4 as well as the preseason of League of Legends (LoL), Trinkets are special items that provide a variety of useful effects during matches. A Champion will only be able to hold one (1) Trinket at a time.

How to Obtain Trinkets

Trinkets can be obtained at the Shop under Vision & Trinkets of the Tools selection. They don’t require purchase, but there is a 120-second cooldown if you decide to change your Trinket during the game if you’ve already equipped one at the start. The cooldown time can be reduced by upgrading the Trinket whenever the Champion levels-up, as well as granting it better effects.
