Notes:

  • Interrupts the caster's channeling abilities upon cast.
  • Places a debuff on enemies (including visible ones) within the radius upon cast. Leaving or entering the radius afterwards has no effect.
    • Unlike the visual effect, the Reveal's effects are applied within the entire radius instantly upon cast.
  • The damage is only applied to enemy units that are invisible upon cast. Units that are not invisible, or already revealed units are not damaged.
    • This means Reveal first applies the damage, and then places the debuff on the targets.
  • Multiple debuffs do not stack, but refresh the duration instead.
  • Only slows units when they actually are invisible. This means during the fade time or fade delay of invisibility, the unit is not slowed.


Recommended Heroes[]

Dust of Appearance is usually purchased by gankers and heroes who can pick off enemies on their own, being very useful to counter invisibility heroes and Shadow Blade icon.png Shadow Blade.
