Recommended Heroes[]

  • Shadow Walk helps Bounty Hunter get close enough to debuff targets with Blight Stone, and increases the damage from Jinada. Support Bounty Hunters can also build it into a Medallion of Courage icon.png Medallion of Courage later.
Phantom Assassin icon.png
  • Blight Stone helps Phantom Assassin get last hits in the early game. She can upgrade it later into a Desolator icon.png Desolator.

Others[]

  • Heroes who intend to build a Desolator icon.png Desolator can pick up Blight Stone in the early game:

Tips[]

  • Blight Stone is ideal for a ranged support or ranged carry to harass lanes during the early game.
  • Blight Stone is stronger if you can take advantage of how its armor reduction boosts all physical damage the target receives, such as that of your laning partner, lane creeps, or summoned units. It is less effective in more straightforward 1 vs 1 scenarios.
  • Blight Stone is useful for pushing towers early on, especially when used in tandem with the armor aura from Buckler (Inactive) icon.png Buckler and the assistance of additional allies.
