Why do people with bottles yell at and/or ping the hell out of me when I'm about to pick up a bounty rune, giving the explanation "I have a bottle" or "Bottle ready"?

Why does having a bottle make one the better recipient?

1 Answer 1


Bottling a bounty rune automatically refills the bottle to 2 charges, making it a very useful way of refilling your bottle without going back to the fountain or sending it on a courier. This leads to better lane sustain in general, especially since the bounty runes spawn every 2 minutes. (Also note that powerup runes refill the bottle all the way, making them even better for this purpose. They spawn less frequently though.)

    Note that as of 7.07 courrier can no longer refill bottles.

  • Since patch 7.15 a Bounty Rune refills all three charges.
