Anathemas Chains Details in League of Legends:
The Anathema’s Chains are a tank item. It gives the user +650 Health and +20 Ability Haste.
It also has an active ability by which the user can select a Nemesis. The active ability is usable even after being dead and at a global range. However, you cannot cast the spell for 15 seconds while engaging with other champions.
Another ability called Vendetta, after selecting your Nemesis, you can start building a Vendetta against them over 60 secs. A Vendetta enables you to take up to 30% less damage from your Nemesis, with a 1% per stack reduction.
Another inbuilt ability-Vengeance of the item is that it allows 20% reduced tenacity of the Nemesis while they’re near you.

Pros of Anathema’s Chains
- Anti-split push is now easier with this item
- You can counter single-threat teams.
- Being able to use the active ability even when you’re dead.
Cons of Anathema’s Chains
- Changing your Nemesis causes you to lose all the Vendetta against your previous Nemesis i.e you’ll have to work for your new Nemesis’ Vendetta again.
The design of the item is such that split push becomes harder for the enemy. Overall, the item is not overpowering but still noteworthy.
