Additional Information[edit]

Ability[edit]

Ability
No Target
Affects
Self
You enter ghost form for 4 seconds, becoming immune to physical damage, but are unable to attack and 40% more vulnerable to magic damage.
Magic Resistance Reduction: 40%
Duration: 4
Cooldown: 20
Mana: 0
Does not pierce spell immunity. Can be cast while spell immune. However, the buff gets immediately removed if spell immunity is detected.
Modifiers
Buff modifier_ghost_state: Dispellable with any dispel.

Notes:

  • Interrupts the user's channeling spells upon cast.
  • Reduces most heroes' total magic resistance to -5%, assuming basic 25% magic resistance and no other sources of magic resistance.


Recommended Heroes[edit]

Fragile support heroes often use Ghost Scepter in the late game as a means staying alive longer against physical damage carries.

Heroes with powerful nukes who intend to amplify their damage with an Ethereal Blade icon.png Ethereal Blade will benefit from a mid game Ghost Scepter.

Tips[edit]

  • Use Ghost Scepter after baiting an enemy carry to attack you, causing them to waste time switching between targets.
  • Try to keep track of the cooldown on enemy nuke abilities. Think twice before using Ghost Scepter if you believe that a powerful magical nuke, such as Finger of Death, has not yet been used.
