Ability[]

Ability
Passive
Affects
Enemies
Damage
Magical
Grants each attack a 80% chance to pierce through evasion and deal 70 bonus magical damage.
Proc Chance: 80%
Damage: 70
Partially usable by illusions.
Illusion Notes:
Does not benefit from the conditional bonus attack damage.
Other aspects of Pierce is fully functional.

Notes:

  • The proc chances from the same source of Pierce do not stack.
    • However, it works completely independent from Javelin's pierce, fully stacking with it.
  • 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.

Although it weighs several tons, the Monkey King can change its size at will so he may shrink it and tuck it behind his ear, or grow exponentially and duplicate into an infinite number of individual rods.
  • Monkey King minimap icon.png Monkey King's default weapon model is a Monkey King Bar.
