When fighting the Herald, it's eye often opens, and hitting it (hitting the herald's back) does a bonus damage.

What triggers that eye opening? Is it every x seconds? or is it at specific checkpoints in it's life?

According to the League of Legends wikia (emphasis mine),

After being in combat for three seconds, the eye on Rift Herald's back will open. Champion basic attacks against the eye deal (12% of Rift Herald's maximum health) bonus true damage, causing the eye to close for 10 seconds, reduced by 2.5 seconds every time she is struck by a champion's basic attack.

  • So if you are 4 chunking down the Herald, you should, seeing this analysis, have the eye pretty much always open. If i can remember right, I don't see that happening. Maybe the wiki hasnt updated after a patch? – Fredy31 Oct 13 '17 at 16:07

  • Apologies, looks like I unintentionally formatted my answer almost exactly the same as yours and almost at the same time. I can delete it if necessary. – Zodack Oct 13 '17 at 15:16
