Enemies
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.
Illusion Notes:
Illusions do not benefit from the conditional bonus attack damage.
Other aspects of Pierce are fully functional.

Notes:

  • 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.
  • The bonus damage is considered as a conditional attack damage bonus and is magical damage.
    • Although the attack damage bonus values are not displayed in the HUD, it is still considered and directly added to the unit's attack damage.
    • It is not considered by lifesteal, crit or cleave.
    • It can be reduced only by flat reductions (e.g. magical damage barrier).
    • Since it is considered bonus attack damage, it is not affected by percentage-based attack damage bonuses or reductions.
  • Does not work against buildings, but works against wards and allied units.
  • Attacks which proc Pierce cannot miss.
