Nature's Attendants
Enchants neutral creeps to do her bidding.
"Sproink!" Carefree and pure of heart, Aiushtha wanders the forests, listening to the stories of its inhabitants. Nature's Attendants flutter around her, lively sprites that heal critters big and small. When necessary, she Enchants woodland creatures to do her bidding. A perfect image of Untouchable innocence, hunters hesitate to make even the slightest move against Aiushtha. This reluctance is seldom reciprocated. Threats against her friends embolden the Enchantress to break her gentle demeanor, giving her the Impetus to bring those who disturb the peace to a swift and final justice.

Enchantress minimap icon.pngAiushtha, the Enchantress
▶️ "You know what I love? Everything!"
Aiushtha appears to be an innocent, carefree creature of the woods, and while this is certainly true, it is hardly the sum of her story. She well understands the suffering of the natural world. She has wandered far, and fared through forests bright and drear, in every clime and every season, gathering friends, sharing news, bringing laughter and healing wherever she goes. For in worlds wracked by war, forests are leveled for the building of ships and siege engines; and even in places of peace, the woods are stripped for the building of homes, and as fuel for countless hearths.

Aiushtha hears the pleas of the small creatures, the furtive folk who need green shade and a leafy canopy to thrive. She lends her ears to those who have no other listeners. She carries their stories from the wood to the world, believing that her own good cheer is a kind of Enchantment, that can itself fulfill the promise of a verdant future.


Impetus icon.png
Places an enchantment on each attack while activated, causing it to deal additional damage based on how far away the target is. The farther the target, the greater the damage dealt. Deals double damage to creeps and illusions.
Cast Range: 575

Modifiers [?]
While Aiushtha favors peaceful means, she is capable of a magical onslaught from a distance, her spears gaining energy from the natural life around her.


  • The cast range of Impetus is based on the attack range of the caster.
    • The cast range can be further increased by other attack range bonuses. However, it is not affected by cast range bonuses.
  • The distance is calculated as the projectile hits the target.
    • This means moving away from the target causes it to deal more damage on impact, and moving closer decreases the damage.
  • Impetus deals its damage before the attack damage is applied, but still depends on the attack hitting the target.
  • The damage is capped at a distance of 1750, resulting in the following maximum damage values:
    • Can deal a total of 140/210/280/350 (Talent 253.75/323.75/393.75/463.75) damage to heroes, creep-heroes, and Roshan icon.png Roshan.
    • Can deal a total of 280/420/560/700 (Talent 507.5/647.5/787.5/927.5) damage to non-hero units and illusions.

Enchant icon.png
Enchantress charms an enemy. If the enemy is a hero, they are slowed. If the enemy is a creep, she brings it under her control, increasing its attack damage and max health. Only one creep can be controlled at a time.

Cannot Enchant spell immune units.
Modifiers [?]
A true steward of the forest, Aiushtha befriends all within it - from lowly trolls to powerful centaurs.


  • Enchant first applies the dispel, then the slow.
  • Slowed units leave behind a trail of flowers as they move, which is only visible when the unit itself is visible.
  • Casting Enchant on any other enemy unit enchants it (short sound is played). This includes illusions.
    • Enchant applies a basic dispel on the target which removes buffs and debuffs.
    • The enchanted creep also gets fully healed and is granted regular flat bonus attack damage. However, its mana does not get restored.
  • Enchanting a new creep instantly kills the previous enchanted creep.
    • When an enchanted creep's duration ends, it gets instantly killed as well
    • These deaths are not credited to anyone so that no one gets experience from it.

Illusion Notes:

Passive wisps spawns and are fully functional.
Modifiers [?]
Whimsical spirits of the woods possess a healing power that is quite subtle, but gains strength in numbers.


  • Every 0.5 seconds, each wisp chooses a random allied unit to heal. So it is possible to heal up to 8 (Talent 13) allies at a time.
  • The heal targets are chosen completely random, without any priorities. Multiple wisps can randomly select the same unit.
    • Each wisp approaches its chosen target, indicating the wisp is healing the target.
    • However, when choosing the number of wisps increasing Talent talent, the visual effect does not adapt. The numbers of wisps that can be seen does not increase.
  • The area of effect is centered around Enchantress' current location, and follows her at all times.
  • When Enchantress dies, the wisps still continue to heal units nearby her death's location.
  • Multiple casts of Nature's Attendants do not stack, but refreshes the duration.
  • Can heal a total of 32/64/96/128 health per second or 384/768/1152/1536 health over its full duration.
    • The number of wisps increasing Talent talent can heal a total of 52/104/156/208 health per second or 624/1248/1872/2496 health over its full duration.
    • The bonus heal per wisp Talent talent can heal a total of 192/224/256/288 health per second or 2304/2688/3072/3456 health over its full duration.
    • With both Talent talents, it can heal a total of 312/364/416/468 health per second or 3744/4368/4992/5616 health over its full duration.
  • With Aghanim's Shard icon.png Aghanim's Shard, the passive wisps can heal up to 12/24/36/48 (Talent 72/84/96/108) health per second or 720/1440/2160/2880 (Talent 4320/5040/5760/6480) per minute.

Ability Draft Notes
Ability Draft Notes:
Impetus must be drafted as well for it to get applied.
Upgradable by Aghanim's Scepter.
Requires drafting Untouchable to be unlocked.
Sproink is as Sproink does.


  • Sproink interrupts Enchantress' channeling abilities upon cast.
  • Upon cast, Enchantress leaps in an arc with a height of 150 and 180° away from the direction Enchantress is facing.
    • Leaps at a speed of 1250 for up to 0.4 seconds, or until touching the ground again.
    • Can leap over other units and over impassable terrain.
    • This means the leap distance and duration can be reduced/increased by jumping up/down a ramp or impassable terrain.
  • During Sproink, Enchantress can attack, cast abilities and use items.
  • 0.2 seconds after cast, Enchantress performs instant attacks on the furthest 3 enemies within the search radius.
    • This means if the leap gets interrupted before that, the instant attacks do not happen.
    • The instant attacks are also not performed if Impetus is not learned, or when she is disarmed.
    • The instant attacks apply Impetus based on its current level on their targets, they do not cost any mana, and are applied even if Impetus itself is currently not castable.
    • These instant attacks can proc any attack modifiers and on-hit effects normally. They do not have True Strike.
  • With Enchantress' base attack range and Sproink's attack range buffer, the ability has a search radius of 775.
    • The search radius can be further increased by other attack range bonuses.
    • Searches for enemies all around her, meaning it may target enemies behind Enchantress as well.

Untouchable icon.png
Enchantress beguiles her enemies, slowing their attacks when she is attacked.
Attack Speed Slow: 120/160/200 (Talent 185/225/265)
Upgradable by Aghanim's Scepter.
Aghanim's Scepter Upgrade:
Grants the Sproink ability.
Disabled by Break.
Break Notes:
Disables the slow, although debuff is still placed on each attack.
Modifiers [?]
After attacking Aiushtha, most opponents are overwhelmed with guilt having attacked such a natural beauty.


  • Untouchable is triggered whenever a unit starts an attack on Enchantress, regardless of distance.
    • This means it does not matter if the attack successfully hits or not, the slow is still applied.
  • When the attack was fully executed, then the slow debuff lasts as long as the remaining backswing duration of the attack.
    • Canceling the attack backswing does not affect this duration, so it is not possible to reset the attack speed by canceling it.
    • When switching attack targets, the debuff persists, but does not apply the slow against the new target.
    • The debuff persists until the attack against the new target finishes or gets canceled.
    • This means it is possible to skip the backswing-based slow duration by issuing an attack order (A) on a new target within attack range between each attack.
    • This also means, the debuff does not affect the idle animation in attack animation after the backswing.

  • Unlike most heroes, Enchantress's attack projectiles actually use the model of her equipped cosmetic weapon.
  • Enchantress' alternate/fun name in DotA was Bambi, referencing the classic Disney animated film of the same name.
  • Enchantress' phrases ▶️ "Light of foot, light of heart!", ▶️ "With skipping grace", and ▶️ "Oh do not run too fast for I will but bespeak thy grave and die" derive from Andrew Marvell's poem "The Nymph Complaining for the Death of her Fawn".
  • Enchantress' line ▶️ "I guess the good do die young." is a reference to the 1977 song by Billy Joel "Only the Good die young".
  • The line ▶️ "Ready or not, here I come!" is a reference to the traditional announcement at the start of the childhood game of Hide and Seek, and possibly a reference to the song Ready or Not Here I Come (Can't Hide from Love) originally created by the Delfonics.
