While playing a character with a spellshield (Nocturne or Sivir) do you need to shield the bomb's placement or the bomb's explosion?

Spell sheilds do not stop the actual explosion, however Zilean can't place a bomb on you if you have your spell sheild on.

Does Banshee's Veil work the same way? – Atav32 Jul 25 '12 at 6:04
Yes, it does @bbz. – troll Jul 25 '12 at 6:15

As already said, every spellshield (nocs, Sivirs) shields the PLACEMENT, and so does banshees. The only things that shield the explosion/the dmg are Morgs Black Shield and Hexdrinkers Shield.

Uhm, Sions shield blocks damage. Every shield that blocks damage can hold off the explosion, so not only Morgs black shield and Hexdrinker. – Lyrion Jul 25 '12 at 9:17
Also Janna's shield, or mordekaisers – Axxelsian Jul 25 '12 at 11:56
