Double Ward Gold Mechanics on Sweeper Everyone Should Know

Ward Gold Is Being WASTED
Sometimes when I'm playing ADC I notice that supports give me question mark pings when I last hit wards that they sweep. Turns out they don't even notice that they also received gold too...at first, I thought it was an isolated incident until I saw this Reddit post earlier today.

It turns out there are a TON of people in all divisions that don't know that if someone uses Sweeping Lens or Control Ward and shows a ward, an ally can kill it and you BOTH get gold and bonus experience.

Ward Gold Is Being WASTED

Sometimes when I'm playing ADC I notice that supports give me question mark pings when I last hit wards that they sweep. Turns out they don't even notice that they also received gold too...at first, I thought it was an isolated incident until I saw this Reddit post earlier today.

It turns out there are a TON of people in all divisions that don't know that if someone uses Sweeping Lens or Control Ward and shows a ward, an ally can kill it and you BOTH get gold and bonus experience.

Ward Takedown Rewards

Trinket Wards provide 10 gold and 37 exp.
  • Compare this to 59 starting XP for melee and 29 starting XP for casters.
Control Wards provide 30 gold and 40 exp.
Stealth Wards provide 30 gold and 40 exp.

Split EXP and Gold

  • Control Ward, Duskblade of Draktharr, and Sweeper Lens will provide FULL gold to the person that finds the invisible ward AND the person that kills the ward. 
  • If multiple allies are near a ward when it is killed, they split 133% of the ward experience.
  • Eyeball Collection - Will give a stack on assist.
  • Killing a Control Ward does NOT split gold if you sweep them or Duskblade them (since they're visible to begin with).

When to Take Down Wards As Support

Destroying wards as support should be isolated to a few key scenarios:
  • When nobody is near enough to take the gold before sweeper expires;
  • Your ADC will miss more than 10 gold of CS trying to last hit a ward;
  • You're last-hitting a control ward; or
  • You're buffing up your vision score.

Conclusions

If you're playing support, don't rage at your marksman for not helping you kill a ward (and ESPECIALLY not for killing a ward). If you're playing marksman, last-hitting wards will double the gold output and increase the experience shared if you weren't close enough to begin with.
