Ability Draft Notes
Ability Draft Notes:
Fully stacks with Time Lock, Bash of the Deep and Greater Bash.

Notes:

  • For multiple items with the bash ability, only the one that has been continuously the longest in the inventory works.
  • The proccing attack first applies the debuff, then the damage.
  • The bonus damage is considered as a conditional attack damage bonus.
    • Although the attack damage bonus values are not displayed in the HUD, it is still considered and directly added to the wielder's attack damage.
    • The attack damage bonus values are not considered by critical strike and cleave.
    • However, it is considered by lifesteal, and it can be reduced only by flat reductions (e.g. damage block).
    • Since it is considered bonus attack damage, it is not affected by percentage-based attack damage bonuses or reductions.
  • Adds an average of 30 and 12 damage to every attack for Melee melee and Ranged ranged heroes respectively.
  • Bash uses a custom cooldown system. It is neither displayed on the item icon when procced, nor is affected by cooldown manipulation.

Tips[]

  • Use Overwhelm to interrupt the enemy heroes' channeling such as Town Portal Scroll icon.png Town Portal Scroll or any channeled abilities like Freezing Field.
  • Although sometimes optional, it is best to buy items that grant attack speed which procs Bash more.
  • Since the Bash pierces spell immunity, it is best used when facing heroes with spell immunity (e.g. Juggernaut minimap icon.png Juggernaut or Lifestealer minimap icon.png Lifestealer). The active ability also has a guaranteed 2-seconds stun that also pierces spell immunity.
  • Be careful when facing heroes with skills/items that applies strong dispel (e.g. Aphotic Shield or Dark Pact), it is best to use abilities with silence or mute to compensate this.
