Recovery is activated by clicking the Recovery button on the skills panel or by pressing the key for this skill ("B" by default). The Recovery channel can be interrupted by the champion performing any a series of actions such as using abilities or moving, being hit by attacks or spells from the enemy or by an ally using displacement spells such as Crystallize from Anivia and Pillar of Ice Trundle. Actions that don't break the pipeline include: "emotes" (like / laugh, / joke), some summoner spells (like Barrier), some items (like Randuin's Omen) and allied spells used on you (such as Eye of the Storm Janna).

Enhanced Recovery

Dominion Enhanced Recovery

When Dominion was released, Recovery was remade to fit the rhythm of the fast-paced playstyle in this way, creating the Enhanced Recovery which takes 4.5 seconds to channel.

Increased Recovery

In the Season 2017, the Improved Recall Utility mastery (Season 2 Mastery) Improved Recall reduces the cast time of Recovery by 1 second and the casting time of Enhanced Recovery by 0.5 seconds.

In the Season 2017, the Three-Dimensional Utility Mastery Three-Dimensional reduces the cast time of Recovery by 1 second and in Dominion reduces the cast time of Enhanced Recovery by 0.5 seconds.

Recovery Illustration

The Recovery function was originally tied for the Blue Pill, which was an acquirable item that could be activated to return to base. The feature was later moved to an optional summoner spell, and finally an inherent characteristic of all champions.

Recovery Animation

Since patch V1.0.0.140, new champions and certain skins, such as Legendary Skins (ex Cho'Gath Superior Armor), have received a special recovery animation, and a few have received special phrases. Additionally, when an older champion gets a visual upgrade, all of their Skins are equipped with a new recovery animation.

Since the launch of I saw, with the exception of Quinn, the recovery animations between the classic skin and the first-released antenative skin of a champion differ from each other. For instance, Classic Lucian folds his weapons before him, while Hired Gun Lucian generates a chair to sit with drinks in hand.

When a player leaves the game his champion automatically walks back to base. Shortly after reaching the base, the champion gains a massive amount of magic resistance and armor, this prevents enemies from using global abilities (such as Requiem of Karthus y Whirling Death de Draven) to instantly kill champions who have gone offline early in the game. Players who have disconnected before the game starts earn the same Magic Resistance / Armor


  • Recovery is neither visible nor heard in the haze of battle
  • Sometimes it is possible to take damage while using Recovery and still return to base. This happens when the damage is caused in a small amount of time (approximately 0.2 seconds or less) before the channeling is complete.


  • The old Blue Pill is possibly a reference to The Matrix movie. In the film, neo is offered the opportunity to take a red or blue pill, signifying his choice to continue living in the world he knows or to wake up.
  • It was previously possible for champions with abilities to move towards an enemy champion to follow the enemy who just finished channeling Recovery and has teleported to the base, causing the champion to fly all the way to the enemy base.
  • Projectiles still do
  • If Recovery is used while the nexus is destroyed, the camera will stay in the center of the champion instead of going towards the destroyed nexus.
