Melting Strike
Not disabled by Break. Does not pierce spell immunity.
Melting Strike (Forged Spirit) icon.png
Melts away the armor of heroes hit by the spirit's attack. Each successive hit increases the amount of armor melted.
Armor Reduction per Attack: 1 (Talent 2)
Armor Reduction Cap: 20 (Talent 40)
Duration: 5
Does not pierce spell immunity. Armor reduction persists if debuff was placed before spell immunity.
Buff modifier_melting_strike: Undispellable. Persists death.
Debuff modifier_forged_spirit_melting_strike_debuff: Dispellable with death only.


  • Successive attacks fully refresh the whole stack's duration.
  • The armor reduction is applied or increased after the attack damage is applied.
  • Only affects heroes and illusion, and nothing else.
