Commands a powerful spirit bear in battle.
Chosen by the forces of nature for his profound wisdom, Sylla is all that remains of his forgotten clan. The Lone Druid is followed by his Spirit Bear, a powerful companion that Entangles enemies, and Demolishes structures. The sound of a Savage Roar is often all that's needed to frighten foes from the forest. If not, then the pair synergies a Spirit Link, increasing their speed and endurance as they roam the lands for intruders. Man or bear, the distinction is not always clear. When the situation calls for it, the Lone Druid takes his True Form, and joins the mêlée to fight claw-to-claw alongside his bear.

Bio[]

Lone Druid minimap iconSylla, the Lone Druid
▶️ "I wonder what awaits me at the end of everything…"
Long before the first words of the first histories there rose the druidic Bear Clan. Wise and just they were, and focused in their ways to seek an understanding of the natural order. The arch forces of nature saw this, and so sought the most learned among them. Wise old Sylla, clan justiciar and seer, stepped forward for his kin, and to him was given the Seed with these words: 'When all of the world has dimmed, when civilization has left these lands, when the world is slain and wracked by the endless deserts at the end of ages, plant the Seed.'

As he grasped his trust, Sylla felt his years recede and his vitality returned. Vast knowledge burst into his mind. He found himself able to project his very will into reality and, with some concentration, alter his own physical form as well. Yet subtle whispers and cruel ears brought word of the Seed and its power to other peoples, and a terrible war crashed upon the Bear Clan. As his ancestral home burned, Sylla took his burden and fled to the wild places.

Ages passed, and time and myth forgot the Bear Clan, forgot Sylla and the Seed, forgot wondrous civilizations that rose and fell in Bear Clan's wake. For millenia Sylla has waited, waited for word from his deities, waited for peace to come to the ever warring realms, waited in exile and in secret for the end of all things and for the conclusion of his sacred commitment, preparing himself always to face and destroy whatever would dare threaten his purpose.

Lone Druid Hud icons

Lone Druid's icons at the side of the screen. The currently selected unit is highlighted.


  • The Spirit Bear levels up together with Lone Druid, gaining 5 attack damage and 90 health with each level.
    • The bonuses are applied immediately and do not require the Spirit Bear to be re-summoned.
    • Grants flat base attack damage. Therefore, it is affected by percentage-based attack damage bonuses or reductions.
    • Grants max health, while the current health remains the same flat amount.
    • For how much bonus health and base attack damage Spirit Bear gains each level, please refer to the chart below.
      • LEVEL 30
        Grants a total of 145 base attack damage and 2610 max health bonus.
    • TALENT
      All Spirit Bear related Talent talents immediately update the current active summon.
  • On the first cast of Summon Spirit Bear, the bear is summoned. On every following cast, its total health and mana are just replenished or revived.
    • Since the re-summon is not considered death, buffs and debuffs are neither dispelled, nor projectiles are disjointed.
    • However, leveling this ability is considered killing the current Spirit Bear and reviving it, this affects the following things:
      • Interrups the Spirit Bear's current channeling abilities.
      • Automatically levels up all of the Spirit Bear's abilities.
      • Resets the current cooldown of Entangling Claws (Spirit Bear) icon Entangling Claws.
      • Dispels both buffs and debuffs on the Spirit Bear while disjointing projectiles.
  • The backlash damage is dealt as pure damage to Lone Druid sourced from the unit that killed the Spirit Bear.
  • The Spirit Bear cannot be re-summoned if it receives any player-based damage, regardless of factions, and Roshan icon Roshan-based damage (before reductions) in the last 3 seconds.
    • Has no minimum damage threshold, so blocked damage also prevents re-summoning it.
    • Self-damage sources and damage flagged as HP Removal do not trigger the damage cooldown.
    • If the Spirit Bear dies, it can be re-summoned immediately.
    • The cooldown is unaffected by cooldown reduction. However, it is affected by cooldown resetting.
  • The Spirit Bear is a Summon Spirit Bear icon Universal Creep-Hero Unit, making it interact differently with certain abilities and mechanics.
    • The Spirit Bear has an attribute base and gain of 0 + 0 Strength attribute symbol / Agility attribute symbol / Intelligence attribute symbol per Lone Druid level.
    • Other abilities that affect the Spirit Bear and not other creep-hero units are stated in their respective ability notes.
  • The following mechanics fully affect the Spirit Bear, but not other creep-hero units:
  • When the Spirit Bear is 1100 range away from Lone Druid, it gets disarmed, turns slightly grey, and uses different animations.
    • Both the grey hue and disarm symbol are visible to allies only. Other animations are visible to everyone.
    • The attack restriction is removed upon acquiring Aghanim's Scepter icon Aghanim's Scepter on the Lone Druid Spirit Bear icon Spirit Bear.

Death
Sylla is emboldened by the presence of his companion, his vitality replenished with each swipe of the Spirit Bear's claws.

  • Spirit Link only affects the caster and the caster's Spirit Bear. Does not affect any other player-controlled units.
    • The buff cannot be dispelled and is granted to both Lone Druid and the Spirit Bear even on death.
  • Uses lifesteal, but instead of healing Spirit Bear, it heals the Spirit Bear's owner instead.
  • Armor shared between Lone Druid and the Spirit Bear or the affected ally is granted as bonus armor.
    • These shared armor values are truncated despite the HUD supporting armor values up to two decimal points.
    • Periodically checks Lone Druid's and the Spirit Bear's or the affected ally main and bonus armor, excluding Spirit Link's armor bonus, and adapts the bonuses immediately.
    • The armor shared is not capped at 0 armor, meaning the shared armor value can be a negative value.
    • TALENT
      The Spirit Bear armor Talent talent effectively grants Lone Druid 2 bonus armor as well.
  • With
    LEVEL 3
    True Form icon True Form, Spirit Link effectively grants the Spirit Bear or the affected ally 0/1/1/2 bonus armor.
  • The visual effect upon leveling up only appears when the Spirit Bear is within 1500 range of Lone Druid.
  • Attacks from Lone Druid now heals the target using lifesteal.
    • The lifesteal is also affected by lifesteal amplification, but only if the amplification source is on the affected target.
  • Successive casts on different targets refresh the buff duration and link Lone Druid to the new target.
    • The previous target is still linked to Lone Druid, but Lone Druid is no longer connected to the previous target.
    • Therefore, attacks from the previous target still heal Lone Druid, but not the other way around.
  • Lone Druid and the Spirit Bear are automatically linked back when either all the linked target(s) or Lone Druid is dead.
    • Upon Lone Druid's death, only the buff on the first targeted ally will be dispelled.
  • Spirit Bear
    All ability effects are granted by a status buff instead for the Spirit Bear.
    • The fountain fear is determined if the Lone Druid Spirit Bear icon Spirit Bear has Aghanim's Scepter icon Aghanim's Scepter equipped when Lone Druid casts Spirit Link on an ally hero.
      • If the Spirit Bear does not have Aghanim's Scepter equipped, Spirit Link mutes and fears the Spirit Bear back to its fountain.
      • Equipping Aghanim's Scepter after getting feared does not dispel the fear.
      • Neither fears nor mutes the Spirit Bear if Spirit Link is cast before Summon Spirit Bear icon Resummoning the Spirit Bear.

Sylla studies and masters the arts of the lost Bear Clan, enhancing his attunement with the wild.

  • Savage Roar is always cast by Lone Druid and the Spirit Bear simultaneously, no matter who was given the order.
    • However, if the other would normally not be able to cast it (e.g. while stunned or silenced), the effect does not occur.
    • The simultaneous cast restriction while disabled is removed, so that the other casts it even when normally unable to cast Savage Roar.
      • The current cooldown status is ignored and does not prevent the ability from triggering if still on cooldown.
      • The cooldown always triggers, regardless of any status effects.
  • The simultaneous Savage Roar cast goes on a fixed 38/32/26/20 (Talent 31/25/19/13)-second cooldown.

    • Every point of Strength attribute symbol / Agility attribute symbol / Intelligence attribute symbol attribute on the Spirit Bear grants their usual bonuses and increases its main attack damage by 0.7.
  • The Spirit Bear immediately gains a flat 90 health and and 5 base attack damage every time Lone Druid minimap icon Lone Druid levels up.
    • Grants flat base attack damage. Therefore, it is affected by percentage-based attack damage bonuses or reductions.
    • Grants max health, while the current health remains the same flat amount.
      • LEVEL 30
        Grants a total of 145 base attack damage and 2610 max health bonus.
  • The Spirit Bear's current health value from max health increasing sources is based on the ratio of its current health and 1100/1400/1700/2000 (Talent 2100/2400/2700/3000).
    • It does not keep the current health percentage when affected by max health sources. The max health granted from Lone Druid minimap icon Lone Druid leveling up is considered as max health bonus, and it is not factored into the current health calculations.
    • This can be defined as
      expr
      (BearBaseMaxHP ± MaxHealthSources) × (BearCurrentHP / BearBaseMaxHP)
  • The health calculation affects the following things:
    • The Spirit Bear now has 1000/4000 health, and Lone Druid just purchased a Vitality Booster icon Vitality Booster for the Spirit Bear.
    • With
      LEVEL 4
      Summon Spirit Bear icon Summon Spirit Bear, the Spirit Bear has a base max health of 2000.
    • In this example, the ratio between the current health and base max health is 50%.
    • Therefore, the Spirit Bear will have 1125 health with the item equipped with the current health values.
  • TALENT
    All Spirit Bear related Talent talents immediately update the current active summon.

Item Interactions[]

Cooldown
  • The cooldown of an item is bound to the item itself, and not to the unit holding the item. Giving Spirit Bear an item which already is on cooldown, will still be on cooldown in its inventory.
  • If the Spirit Bear has an item on cooldown, and then receives the same item again from Lone Druid but off cooldown, the newly received item is usable right away, despite the other one being still on cooldown. Using it puts it on cooldown and restarts the cooldown of the other one (e.g. Lone Druid and Spirit Bear both having Hand of Midas icon Hand of Midas).
    • However, when an item went on cooldown due to a shared cooldown (e.g. Medallion of Courage icon Medallion of Courage going on cooldown because of Solar Crest icon Solar Crest getting used, or when having multiple Faerie Fire icon Faerie Fire), it is not on cooldown when given to the Spirit Bear, since the item itself was not used to proc the cooldown.


Aeon Disk icon
  • Spirit Bear's Aeon Disk icon Combo Breaker cooldown works completely independently and it is not bound to Lone Druid's.
Consumables and Charged-based Items
Black King Bar icon
  • Spirit Bear's Black King Bar icon Avatar duration works completely independently and it is not bound to Lone Druid's.
Bottle icon
  • Bottle icon Store Rune and Bottle icon Regenerate work as if a hero is using the item.
  • Bottle is also refilled when affected by Rejuvenation Aura icon Rejuvenation Aura.
  • However, the team chat message displays Lone Druid instead of the Spirit Bear when it uses runes.
Gem of True Sight icon
  • Gem of True Sight icon True Sight does not reveal invisible units when held by Spirit Bear.
    • However, Gem of True Sight icon Reveal can be cast as if a hero is casting the ability.
  • It is dropped when the Spirit Bear dies.
Divine Rapier icon
  • The item works as if a hero is wielding the item. It is also muted when given to allies.
  • It is dropped when the Spirit Bear dies.
  • It is possible to swap an Original Rapier between Lone Druid and the Spirit Bear, as it is not muted like how it is for allies. When picked up by an enemy, it turns into a Free Rapier as usual.
  • The Spirit Bear can pick up Free Rapiers, and just like heroes, it cannot manually drop a Free Rapier from its inventory.
    • Free Rapiers cannot be swapped between Lone Druid and the Spirit Bear like an Original Rapier.
