Blade Fury
Slices through his enemies with precise strikes.
What laid under the Juggernaut's mask, none could say. The last of his kind, Yurnero carries alone the martial traditions of his native isle, now sunken forever beneath the waves. The Juggernaut elevates swordplay to an art form, Swiftslashing foes in the unstoppable cyclone of Blade Fury, and striking at every vulnerability with Blade Dance. Should his party sustain injury, he is quick to replenishes their vitality with a portable Healing Ward. A paragon of discipline, Yurnero waits patiently for the opportune moment to execute his most fearsome technique. Dashing between foes with imperceptible swiftness, the Juggernaut's Omnislash eviscerates his opponents long before any can mount a defense.

Juggernaut minimap icon.pngYurnero, the Juggernaut
▶️ "By the Visage of Vengeance, which drowned in the Isle of Masks, I will carry on the rites of the Faceless Ones."
No one has ever seen the face hidden beneath the mask of Yurnero the Juggernaut. It is only speculation that he even has one. For defying a corrupt lord, Yurnero was exiled from the ancient Isle of Masks--a punishment that saved his life. The isle soon after vanished beneath the waves in a night of vengeful magic. He alone remains to carry on the Isle's long Juggernaut tradition, one of ritual and swordplay. The last practitioner of the art, Yurnero's confidence and courage are the result of endless practice; his inventive bladework proves that he has never stopped challenging himself. Still, his motives are as unreadable as his expression. For a hero who has lost everything twice over, he fights as if victory is a foregone conclusion.

  • Does not interrupt Juggernaut's channeling abilities upon cast.
  • Juggernaut can perform attacks, cast abilities, and use items during Blade Fury.
    • However, both Omnislash and Swiftslash are inactive for the duration and cannot be cast.
  • Deals 18/23/28/33 (Talent 48/53/58/63) damage in 0.2-second intervals, starting 0.2 seconds after cast, resulting in 25 (Talent 30) damage instances.
    • Can deal up to 450/575/700/825 damage to a single unit (before reductions).
    • With the duration increasing Talent talent, it can deal up to 540/690/840/990 damage.

    • The instant attack targets are chosen randomly, there are no priorities. The instant attack does not target buildings or wards.
    • Unlike the regular attacks that can be performed during Blade Fury, the instant attacks' damage can be defined as ΣAtk × 75%, instead of 0.

    • Also increases Juggernaut's movement speed to 405 while active.

Of the rituals learned at the Isle of Masks, tending wounds with a bit of voodoo magic has proven to be quite useful.

  • The heal is provided by an aura. The buff lingers for 2.5 seconds.
    • The healing auras of multiple Healing Wards do not stack.

Critical Damage: 180%
Talent Lifesteal: 40%
Can be used by illusions.
Illusion Notes:

Modifiers [?]
The last remnant of his heritage's commitment to bladework, Yurnero ensures that the style is remembered.


  • Increases attack damage by an average of 16%/20%/24%/28%.
  • A critical strike proc is decided upon attack begin, not upon landing an attack.
    • When a critical strike procs, Juggernaut uses a specific crit attack animation, and particle effects appear on his weapon.
  • The proc chances of multiple crit sources stack.
    • If two sources of critical strike proc at the same time, the higher crit multiplier has priority.
  • The Blade Dance Lifesteal Talent talent adds lifesteal to the proccing attack.

Ability Draft Notes
Ability Draft Notes:
Upgradable by Aghanim's Scepter.
Requires drafting Omnislash to be unlocked.


  • Does not require Omnislash to be leveled to be unlocked, once Aghanim's Scepter is acquired.
    • However, it relies on Omnislash to work, since it directly uses its values. This means when Omnislash is not learned, Swiftslash does nothing on cast.
    • Omnislash notes fully apply.
  • Swiftslash is distinguished by blue particles, as opposed to the orange particles of Omnislash.

Modifiers [?]
‘The fruits of discipline; with practice comes strength.’


  • Juggernaut can cast abilities and use items during Omnislash.
    • However, Blade Fury is inactive for the duration and cannot be cast.
    • During Omnislash, Juggernaut does not need to turn in order to cast targeted abilities or items.
  • The slash interval equals Juggernaut's current attack rate divided by 1.5.
    • This can be defined as
    • With the attack speed limits, the minimum and maximum possible slash intervals are 0.133 ‒ 4.667 seconds per slash respectively.
    • The interval is not set on cast. On each slash, the interval updates based on his current attack rate.
  • If no valid targets can be found within range and within 0.15 seconds after the previous jump, Omnislash ends prematurely.
  • On each slash, Juggernaut is positioned at the opposite side of the target from Juggernaut's position, facing the target.
    • The slash radius is centered around Juggernaut, not around the current target.
  • Provides 200 radius flying vision lasting 1 second on each slash around the current target.
  • Recasting Omnislash while the previous cast is still active cancels the previous cast and starts a new instance.
    • This also applies when Swiftslash is cast during Omnislash, the former canceling the latter, and vice versa.
  • Centers the player's camera perspective on Juggernaut on cast, following his position during Omnislash.

  • Mask of Madness icon.png Mask of Madness grants lifesteal and a cheap attack speed boost to improve Juggernaut's farming efficiency. The active can also be used during Omnislash for more slashes.

Late game:

  • Butterfly icon.png Butterfly gives an enormous boost to his damage, attack speed, and armor, as well as having the ability to evade physical attacks. It greatly increasing the physical damage Juggernaut can take, while Blade Fury protects against the magical damage. The increased attack speed also allows Blade Dance to occur more often.
  • Abyssal Blade icon.png Abyssal Blade grants bash chance, which Juggernaut welcomes with low base attack time and decent agility, as well as active stun to lock down targets in the late game.

Situational items:

  • Monkey King Bar icon.png Monkey King Bar allows Juggernaut to attack enemies with evasion during Omnislash.

  • Desolator icon.png Desolator reduces the target's armor, increasing the damage from Juggernaut's attacks and Omnislash. It can also be effective for pushing since this effect works on towers.

  • Eye of Skadi icon.png Eye of Skadi grants attributes and a slow on attacks, keeping targets within Juggernaut's attack range and Blade Fury's radius.
  • Mjollnir icon.png Mjollnir is a natural upgrade to Maelstrom, and gives a large attack speed buff for more lightning procs and Omnislash attacks.

  • Satanic icon.png Satanic has status resistance, strength, attack damage, and active lifesteal that mesh well with Juggernaut's high attack speed, vastly enhancing his survivability in teamfights.
  • Aghanim's Scepter icon.png Aghanim's Scepter unlocks Swiftslash, letting Juggernaut delete lone enemies without committing Omnislash.
