Modifiers [?]

  • Dominating a creep while already having one dominated causes the instantly kills the previously dominated creep.
  • The number of max allowed units is bound to the player. Buying a new Helm of the Dominator does not allow dominating an additional unit.
    • When owning both, Helm of the Dominator and Helm of the Overlord icon Helm of the Overlord, Helm of the Overlord takes priority, still allowing a maximum of 1 unit.
    • This also goes for the Tempest Double minimap icon Tempest Double's copied Helm of the Dominator.
    • When the Dominated creep changes faction (i.e. when affected by Holy Persuasion icon Holy Persuasion or Enchant icon Enchant), it no longer counts towards the max limit.
    • When the item gets upgraded, sold, or destroyed, the dominated creep dies.
      • When the item gets sold by a teammate while being disconnected the Dominated creep does not die.
    • The death is not credited to anyone so that no one gets experience from it.
  • Sets the creep's movement speed to 380, regardless of its default movement speed.
  • Sets the creep's gold bounty to 100 Gold, regardless of its default bounty.
    • The creep's default gold bounty is not granted upon killing it, only the set value is. Its experience bounty is unchanged.
  • When the creep's max health is below the min health threshold, its current and max health are increased by the difference. This counts as setting health.
  • Attack damage bonus is added directly to the creep's base attack damage.
    • Does not grant flat bonus attack damage.
  • Does not restore the creep's mana.
  • This ability's cooldown is not refreshed by Rearm icon Rearm.
