Minions in League of Legends

Minions are an integral and calling card of every mob game. Essentially, this is a consumable item and a way to get a huge amount of gold and experience. The first wave of minions appears at 1:05 from the start of the match. Each next wave appears after 30 seconds. In each wave, 3 melee minions and 3 ranged minions run. Every 4th wave, minions become stronger and their characteristics increase. Minions begin to deal bonus damage to towers. There are several types of minions and below we will look at each of them. All minions have an initial movement speed of 325. As the game progresses, this figure increases (+25/50/75/100 at 10/15/20/25 minutes).


Minion stats, including gold, gradually increase over time (every 90 seconds). All minion stats reach maximum values at 37:00 unless a different time is specified. Minions only deal 50% damage to towers and champions.
