Additional Information[]

  • The item's own bonuses are bound to the aura, and not the item itself. This means the passive armor and magic resistance work for the wielder only when they are affected by the aura.
    • This also leads to the self bonus to stack additively with the aura's bonus, rather than multiplicatively.
  • Stacks multiplicatively with other sources of magic resistance.
    • Increases the wielder's total magic resistance to 55%.

Notes:

  • Interrupts the caster's channeling abilities upon cast.
  • Adds a second temporary aura, that affects allies within the same radius as the main aura, and lingers for the same duration.
    • This aura only affects heroes, including illusions, clones, and creep-heroes. Does not invulnerable units.
    • Does not return damage from illusions despite the buff being placed and the visual effect appearing.
  • Despite the item description, damage is only returned, not reflected. Does not reduce incoming damage for the affected allies.
  • Returns the 3 damage types, but not HP Removal effects (e.g. Sunder, Soul Ring icon.png Soul Ring etc.).
    • Damage is returned as the same type as it was received.
    • Returns incoming damage before all manipulations. However, damage manipulation on the enemy still affects the damage normally.
    • The returned damage is always dealt right after the incoming damage.
  • Returned damage has the no-reflection flag, preventing its damage from interacting with other sources of damage with the same flag.
  • Returns damage back to the source. This means damage done by summons is returned back to the summons, not to their owner.
