Damage
Magical
Grants each attack a 30% chance to pierce through evasion and deal 70 bonus magical damage.
Proc Chance: 30%
Damage: 70
Partially usable by illusions. Can proc for illusions, allowing them to bypass evasion, but does not apply the bonus damage.

Notes:

  • The proc chances of Pierce from multiple Javelins work fully independently from each other.
    • This means that two of them can proc on the same attack and both deal their damage.
    • Also stacks with Pierce of Monkey King Bar icon.png Monkey King Bar.
  • The bonus damage is dealt in one instance together with the attack damage, and counts as attack damage as well.
    • However, it is not considered by lifesteal, crit or cleave.
    • It is also not affected by percentage-based attack damage bonuses or reductions, but can be reduced with flat reductions.
  • Does not work against buildings, but works against wards and allied units.
  • Attacks which proc Pierce cannot miss.
