Aiushtha, the Enchantress, is a ranged intelligence hero who uses her abilities to push through lanes and gank with relative ease. Enchantress works well as a jungler in the early game, as it maximizes the effectiveness of her Enchant ability or, harass enemies in lane using Impetus that deals damage based on how far her target is. On first glance, she may be just a support, serving her allies with powerful heals, creep abilities and slows, but as time goes on, her power increases and once she is packed with good items, Enchantress' regular attacks are strong enough to kill most heroes with a couple of attacks if they stand far enough, while avoiding burst attacks with the help of Untouchable. This will make her a potential carry.
- 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.
- The bonus damage is dealt in a separate damage instance, and counts as spell damage.
- Impetus deals its damage before the attack damage is applied, but still depends on the attack hitting the target.
- Casting Enchant on heroes (including clones and the illusion) or creep-heroes slows them and applies a basic dispel on them (long sound is played).
- 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 which is not a ward or building enchants it (short sound is played). This includes all other illusions.
- Cannot be cast on ancient creeps, siege creeps, and .
- Enchanting a new creep instantly kills the previous enchanted creep.
- When an enchanted creep's duration ends, it dies instantly. The death is not credited to anyone so that no one gets experience from it.
- Every 0.5 seconds, each wisp chooses a random allied unit to heal. So it is possible to heal up to 8 ( ) 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 wisps increasing talent, the visual effect does not adapt. The numbers of wisps that can be seen does not increase.
- Ignores ancient creeps and allies that already are at full health.
- 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.
- Nature's Attendants does not stack with itself. Casting the ability while it is active refreshes the buff.
- Can heal a total of 32/64/96/128 health per second or 384/768/1152/1536 health over its full duration.
- The talent can heal a total of health per second or health over its full duration.
- The talent can heal a total of health per second or health over its full duration.
- With both talents, it can heal a total of health per second or health over its full duration.
- Requires to be unlocked.
- Sproink interrupts Enchantress' channeling abilities upon cast.
- Sproink disjoints projectiles upon cast.
- Leaps at a speed of 1250 for up to 0.4 seconds.
- Always leaps 180° away from the direction Enchantress is facing. Does not lock Enchantress' facing angle during the leap.
- Can leap over other units and over impassable terrain.
- During Sproink, Enchantress can attack, cast abilities and use items.
- 0.2 seconds in to the leap, 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 only performed if is learned.
- 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.
- These instant attacks can proc any attack modifiers and on-hit effects normally. They do not have True Strike, and are prevented by disarms.
- The instant attacks apply the current level of , regardless of whether it is currently castable or not.
- The Impetus applied by Sproink do not cost any mana.
- 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.

|Roles:||Support Jungler Pusher Durable Disabler|
|Playstyle:||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' 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.
