Interesting change! The speed shrine no longer grants speed unless you pick up the health/mana/energy restoring relic.

Seems to spawn at 1:55 and respawn every 1:30 seconds.

Thoughts or maybe some input from Nome?

I wonder what the purpose of it is. A benefit for pushing into their half of the map and holding the line forward?

i'm almost certain they want to have an objective to fight for at lvl 1 as opposed to just sitting around in a bush until minions spawn

maybe this will help

yeah, without the the altars to fight for lvl 1 the only reason you fought and didnt level to 2 was to gain the first blood money. with this, theres a more"real" objective to go after, if nothing else, it definitely strengthens the jungling aspect of the game.

Trying it out as a replacement for the Speed Shrine. May or may not eventually have a jungle mob spawn at Vilemaw's position as well (until Vilemaw spawns). Speed Shrine had to go though

Why is a health restoring relic more valuable to fight over than first blood at level 1?

Now only one person gets the Speed Boost, giving an actual advantage...excellent.

well level 1 fights also had the habit of displaying who could establish jungle control and set the pace of a match so a health pick up just solidifies it more.

But if you don't fight over it, it's irrelevant.
