Notes:

  • Resets all current attack and ability targeting orders from other units on the owner.
  • After the split time, the caster reappears with their illusions.
    • The reappear locations are based on the caster's position upon cast, with one appearing at the cast location, and the others north, east, south or west from that point.
    • The distance in between each is 108 range if the hero has a collision size of 24, and 72 if the collision size is 8.
    • Though the formation is always the same, the caster and their illusions take a random position in the formation and have all the same facing angle.
  • Orders the user to stop after the split time, canceling all queued orders, and orders given during the split time.
  • Recasting this replaces the illusions from the previous cast which are currently under the owner's control.

Tips[]

  • The Manta Style is less effective on ranged heroes except with heroes with attack modifiers that works on illusions like Luna Moon Glaives bounce, Drow Ranger's high agility and Morphling which mostly buy stats items that benefits illusions.
  • Doesn't work with Lone Druid's Spirit Bear.
  • The illusions can be used to scout to secure your farming, prepare a gank, or before attacking Roshan icon.png Roshan. They are useful to deward and destroy Techies' mines but they don't get True Sight from Gem.
  • The active of the Manta Style applies a basic dispel, so it can replace a Linken's Sphere icon.png Linken's Sphere against a Bloodthorn icon.png Bloodthorn or Rod of Atos icon.png Rod of Atos.
  • The illusions are good against a hero carrying a Skull Basher, they will have 2/3 chances to bash your illusion.
