What happens to the Unique Passive on the Seeker's Armguard?

"Unique passive: Kills grant 0.5 bonus armor and ability power. This bonus stacks up to 30 times."

What happens if I have 0 stacks on it and upgrade it to Zhonya's Hourglass?
Inversely, what happens if I have 30 stacks?

edit:
oh and also, can we calculate our new position in the ranking system? Is it highest elo or current?

To my understanding it is a combination of your current and highest elo that determines your new position

Basically, the stats in Z Hourglass will assume you've maxed Seeker's Armguard.

I hope I'm not the only one who read this with a German accent.

Does that mean the extra armor and AP from killing units are essentially free stats until it is upgraded, and that the gold cost reflects only the base stats? Otherwise it seems pointless having the stacks in the first place if Zhonya's will give you those stats anyway.

Hey morello,

Can you tell me how you feel about the passive armor stacking/ability power of this new mage item? I personally feel that for its cost the 15 armor you get is a bit under whelming


I feel like the ability power, and armor should be separate. I'm okay with the ability power being .5 per stack, but the armor as well? That additional 15 doesn't really feel like it would be too helpful against some of the more common ad mid picks, who are already stacking a ton of pen any how. Thoughts?
