  • Does not stack with the Chain Lightning of Mjollnir icon.png Mjollnir or other Maelstroms.
  • When obtaining multiple items with the Chain Lightning ability, only the one that has been continuously the longest in the inventory works.
  • The lightning bounces in {{#show:#Relâmpago em Cadeia|?value4#}} second intervals, so hitting max targets takes Erro Lua: Erro de expressão: Carácter de pontuação "{" não reconhecido. seconds.
  • Does not bounce on invisible units or units in the Fog of War.
  • Can never hit the same unit twice per proc.
  • All bounces together can deal up to Erro de expressão: Carácter de pontuação "{" não reconhecido damage (before reductions).
  • Chain Lightning can proc while a previous chain lightning is still bouncing.
  • Chain Lightning uses pseudo-random distribution.
  • Attacks which proc Chain Lightning cannot miss.
  • The Maelstrom Chain buff is a hidden buff required for the lightning to jump.

Heróis recomendados[]

Sniper icon.png
  • Chain Lightning increases Sniper's farm speed, allowing Sniper to get more items quickly as a carry.
  • Sniper's long range from  Melhorar Mira allows him to safely clear waves. This makes it an essential item in base defense situations.
Alchemist icon.png
  • Alchemist's increased attack speed while in effect of  Fúria Química increases the chances of Chain Lightning proc, increasing the item effectiveness even more.

  • Maelstrom is the third most cost effective DPS item in the game after Mask of Madness icon.png Máscara da Loucura and a Diffusal Blade 1 icon.png Lâmina Difusora (agility heroes).
  • Maelstrom is a very good item for speeding up farming. If the extra experience is not needed, it is good alternative to the Hand of Midas icon.png Mão de Midas. Since the lightning has a huge bounce range, it can be used to damage multiple camps at once when farming in the woods, if vision over the camps is present.
  • It is also great to deal with illusions or mass-summons like Broodmother minimap icon.png Broodmother's spiders, Nature's Prophet minimap icon.png Nature's Prophet's treants, etc. Especially useful for ranged heroes that lack area damage, since they cannot make use of cleave.
  • The Chain Lightning deals magical damage which ignores armor and Damage Block, making it good against heroes that get a Vanguard, or Tidehunter with his Kraken Shell, and against heroes with high armor like Dragon Knight minimap icon.png Dragon Knight or Terrorblade minimap icon.png Terrorblade.
  • Consider buying an Infused Raindrops icon.png Infused Raindrop to counter Maelstrom's Chain Lightning damage.
  • The maelstrom is effective to defend against mega creep.
