Modifiers [?]

  • The damage counter accumulates all damage instances dealt to the Soul Rend target within the last 5 seconds.
    • Damage instances from all damage types the target received are summed up and dealt as another single spell damage instance.
      • Accumulate amount is based on actual damage amount taken by the target (i.e. after all damage manipulation is applied).
    • Neither accumulate damage flagged as HP Removal or damage sources with the no-reflection flag (e.g. Blade Mail icon Blade Mail).
    • The accumulated bonus damage dealt can be avoided if the target becomes invulnerable, or hidden at the end of the duration.
  • Applies the accumulated damage as soon as the debuff expires. Therefore, the debuff being dispelled negates the accumulated damage bonus entirely.
    • Successive casts on the same target refreshes the debuff duration and delays, and increase the accumulated bonus damage value further.
    • The accumulated damage dealt is credited to the last caster of Soul Rend on the affected target.
  • Attacks against the affected target have absolute accuracy, which prevents its attacks from being missed (i.e. evasion or blind effects).
  • The attack-based bonus damage is dealt in a separate damage instance, and counts as spell damage.
    • This means it is not affected or considered by anything that works with attack damage.
    • The bonus damage is applied to all incoming attacks, including attacks from buildings, wards, and allies.
    • The source of the damage is the Bloodthorn caster, not the attacker itself, and thus utilises the caster's spell amplification and spell lifesteal sources.

Partially usable by illusions. Does not pierce debuff immunity.
Grants each attack a 40% chance to pierce through evasion and deal 50 bonus magical damage.
Proc Chance: 40%
Damage: 50
Partially usable by illusions.
Illusion Notes:
Illusions do not benefit from the conditional bonus attack damage.
Other aspects of Pierce are fully functional.

  • Pierce from multiple Javelins work fully independently from each other.
    • This means that two of them can proc on the same attack and both deal their damage.
    • Also stacks with Monkey King Bar icon Pierce.
  • The bonus damage is considered as a conditional attack damage bonus and is magical damage.
    • Although the attack damage bonus values are not displayed in the HUD, it is still considered and directly added to the unit's attack damage.
    • It is not considered by lifesteal, crit or cleave.
    • It can be reduced only by flat reductions (e.g. magical damage barrier).
    • Since it is considered bonus attack damage, it is not affected by percentage-based attack damage bonuses or reductions.
  • Does not work against buildings, but works against wards and allied units.
  • Attacks which proc Pierce cannot miss.
