Modifiers [?]

  • Can only target heroes, clones, illusions and creep-heroes.
    • However, casting it on any other unit than heroes, clones or the Lone Druid Spirit Bear icon Spirit Bear basically wastes it, since other units do not respawn.
    • Casting it on a hero that already has the buff wastes the item as well.
  • The owner of the item does not have to face the selected target to use Block of Cheese on them.
  • Applies a All Damage Barrier universal damage barrier on the affected target that absorbs damage values of all damage types, causing several on-damage effects to not trigger within its capacity.
    • Stacks additively with the same damage-type barrier sources, and independently with other damage-type barrier sources.
    • Universal damage barrier has the lowest priority in the group of damage barriers, its capacity is depleted last when combined with other damage-type barriers.
    • However, when combined with other higher-priority damage-negating sources (e.g. Refraction icon Refraction), Aphotic Shield does not absorb any damage until the damage-negation sources expire.
  • The barrier regenerates at a rate of 100 per second, taking 5 seconds to fully regenerate from 0.
  • Player-based damage, regardless of factions, and Roshan icon Roshan-based damage greater than 0 (after reductions) stops the regeneration for 5 seconds.
    • Does not get stopped by self-damage sources and damage flagged as HP Removal.


  • The item's internal name is royale_with_cheese.
