- This item resulted from the separation of the offensive and defensive abilities of the removed item . This is the defensive item; is the offensive item.
- The "Hourglass" in the name is a reference to the fact that by using its active ability, you are granted a few more seconds to live. Within those few seconds, your cooldowns will continue to drop and your team may come to help you.
- Champions like Twitch can benefit from these few seconds to "fade to stealth" by stealthing then activating . After emerging from the stasis, they will be fully stealthed.
- Activating the active will cancel channeled abilities; however, non-channeled area abilities such as Fiddlesticks', Morgana or Kennen's ultimates will continue, making Zhonya's Hourglass particularly powerful when used in the middle of an enemy team, allowing them to continue doing damage while being invulnerable to counterattack.
