Modifiers [?]

  • Once cast, the troll is continuously ordered to re-cast Heal on the same target.
    • This means as long as the troll is not given any other order, it will cast heal on the same target again once off cooldown.
    • This stops once the target is at full health, the target dies, or until the troll is given a new order.
    • Other status effects (on the troll or on the target) do not stop this. The troll continues casting once the conditions allow it again.
    • When having auto-attacking turned on, the healing takes priority and cancels automatically started attacks.
  • As a player-controlled unit:
    • With Autocast, the troll automatically heals the closest nearby hurt allied unit.
    • Follows the same rules as a manual cast, sticking to the target until a new order is given.
    • Autocast occurs regardless of the unit's current orders, canceling them.
  • Has a cast backswing of 0.6 when cast by Doom minimap icon Doom (acquired through Devour icon Devour).
  • Has a cast backswing of 1.07 when cast by Rubick minimap icon Rubick (acquired through casting Spell Steal icon Spell Steal on Doom).
