Additional Information[]

  • Stacks multiplicatively with other sources of magic resistance.
    • Increases most heroes' total magic resistance to 40%.


Soul Rend
Silences a target for 5 seconds. At the end of the silence, an additional 30% of all damage taken during the silence will be dealt to the target as magical damage.

All attacks on the silenced target will have True Strike and 100% chance to crit for 130% damage.
Cast Range: 900
Damage Amplification: 30%
Critical Proc Chance: 100%
Critical Damage: 130%
Duration: 5
Cooldown: 15
Mana: 100
Does not pierce spell immunity.
Ability effects persist and attempt to deal damage when expiring while spell immune if debuff was placed before spell immunity and when not dispelled.
Can be used by illusions.
Illusion Notes:
Critical strike values shown are before illusion outgoing damage and armor reduction.
Modifiers [?]


  • Does not directly amplify damage as it is dealt, but rather saves all damage values and deals 30% of it 5 seconds after cast.
  • The damage is applied as soon as the debuff expires. However, dispelling the debuff skips the damage entirely.
    • Recasting Soul Rend on the same target refreshes the duration.
    • Doing this delays the damage further, and gives more time to deal damage to the target.
    • The damage is credited to the last caster of Soul Rend on the target.
  • Applies Accuracy on the target, causing all attacks done against the affected target to not miss (i.e. evasion or blind effects).
  • The critical strike applies to all attacks against the debuffed enemy, including buildings, wards, and allies of the target.
    • If the attacking unit is Ranged ranged, already launched attacks do not crit if the target gets debuffed before projectile impact.
    • Vice versa, already launched attacks do crit if the debuff expires before the projectiles land.
    • If another source of critical strike procs on the same attack, the higher multiplier has priority.

Mage Slayer
Cannot be used by illusions. Does not pierce spell immunity.
Places a debuff when you attack enemies, causing them to do 35% less spell damage for 6 seconds.
Spell Damage Reduction: 35%
Duration: 6
Modifiers [?]


  • Successive attacks on the same target do not stack the debuff, but refresh the duration instead.
    • Uses the same modifier as Mage Slayer icon.png Mage Slayer, so they do not stack with each other either.
  • The attacks first apply the debuff, then their own damage.
  • The debuff applies generic outgoing damage reduction on enemies within range. Stacks additively with other sources of generic outgoing damage manipulation.
