I played Dominion yesterday for the first time, and I noticed that in the center of map there are two buffs (a flashing icon on the mini-map), one for each team.

What are the bonuses granted by these buffs? And what are their respawn times?

Personal shield + DOT on attacks is all the information I have found for the moment. Still don't know how long it lasts nor its respawn time. – Dalshim Sep 23 '11 at 15:50
I counted 3 minutes for respawn time of the central buff! – Dalshim Sep 23 '11 at 20:52

Alright, I pulled these up with a LoL Replay of a Dominion game.

Bonuses Granted:

The character model grows by roughly x2

Storm Shield

The first grants an absorption shield with 212.5 (+12.5 x level) health that will recharge if the champion doesn't receive damage after 10 seconds.


The second buff allows the champion to passively detonate a lightning blast inflicting 90 (10 x level) magic damage on the champion's autoattacks and damaging spells with a 4 second cooldown. Spawn Time: 3:00 Minutes

Channel Time: 5 seconds

Respawn Time: 3:00 Minutes

Duration: ~45-60 Seconds (Not positive on this one, hard to find a game where someone kept it the whole time.)
