Additional Information[]

  • Abilities reflected receive its Aghanim's Scepter icon Aghanim's Scepter upgrades only if the reflecting hero has Aghanim's Scepter, regardless of whether the original caster has it or not. This applies to abilities upgraded by Talent talents and Aghanim's Shard icon Aghanim's Shard as well.

Ability[]

Recommended Heroes[]

Lotus Orb is often picked up by initiators and tanks to deter the enemy from trying to interrupt them, as their role often puts them within harm's way. Echo Shell's dispel can also remove debuffs that prevent them from doing their jobs, and these heroes often appreciate some extra armor and mana.

Tips[]

  • Projectile-based abilities are nearly always reflected upon impact. This makes them easier to reflect than spells with instant effect because the Echo Shell can be placed on the targeted unit before the projectile hits.

Trivia[]

  • The ability to reflect single-target abilities back to their casters is actually an old ability concept in Dota. It was first seen in version 6.00 as a chance-based passive ability, belonging to Linken's Mirror, the pre-rework version of Linken's Sphere icon Linken's Sphere. The ability was removed in 6.09 and replaced by Spell Block, as Linken's Sphere got reworked.
