  • Applies a basic dispel and disjoints projectiles upon cast.
  • The dispel is applied after the teleport.
  • If the user took damage in the last 3 seconds, Flicker blinks in place instead of a random forward direction.
    • This means it effectively only applies the disjoint and dispel if used after having taken damage.
    • Only reacts on damage greater than 0 from any player (including allies, excluding self) or Roshan icon Roshan.
