modifier_necronomicon_warrior_mana_burn
Undispellable

  • Burned mana as damage is considered as a conditional attack damage bonus.
    • Although the attack damage bonus values are not displayed in the HUD, it is still considered and directly added to Anti-Mage's attack damage.
    • The attack damage bonus values are not considered by the following sources:
      • Critical strike sources.
      • Mana loss manipulation sources, despite burning less mana and the affected target losing less mana.
    • However, it is considered by lifesteal and cleave, and it can be reduced only by flat reductions (e.g. damage block).
    • Since it is considered bonus attack damage, it is not affected by percentage-based attack damage bonuses or reductions.
  • Effectively increases the warrior's attack damage by 15/20/25 against units which have enough mana to burn.
  • Applies the mana loss first, and then the damage.
  • Works against allied units when attacking them.
