What are they? I assumed both were 1s between ticks but this line-

"...spell damage burns enemies for 5% of their current health as magic damage over 3 seconds...Half duration for multi-target or periodic effects"

suggests that the damage is dealt at a maximum of 0.5s intervals since half of 3 is 1.5 and it isn't possible to trigger half a tick. Some might wonder why this is relevant, and the answer lies in rapid fire spells like Kennens ultimate. The lower the interval the less rapid fire spells benefit.

For example the bolts of Kennens rank 3 ultimate fire off every 0.33s, so if Liandrys ticks every 0.5s then each will deal 0.833% current health. But if the interval is 1s then each bolt will deal 1.66% of current health.

So Riot, what are the damage intervals on these items?

The effects of Hp regen are calculated every half-second IIRC, so I assume this would follow the same rule.

^ Could be the answer. It makes sense.

It does but I'd still like to know for sure. Also Blackfire has a charge system that depletes on a per second basis so a 0.5s interval doesn't fit there.
