Able to captivate and disable enemies with her song.
Once a highly regarded commander of the Slithereen Guard, Slithice fell from honor following a seemingly trivial oversight. She was to find the one stolen chalice, or remain banished forever. Slithice splits a squad of Mirror Images, sending them to scout ahead and Reel In mislead foes. She Ensnares targets in a luminous net, then lashes out with Rip Tides to soften their armor. With the sound of her voice, the enemy halts in mid-swing, lowering their weapons at the sound of a haunting aria. There they will stand, mesmerized, unresponsive to Slithice's encircling allies as they listen to the Siren's Song that has lulled them to their deaths.

Naga Siren minimap iconSlithice, the Naga Siren
▶️ "I sing the Siren song of war."
Among the high-sworn of the Slithereen Guard there is a solemn vow oft repeated before battle: No Slithereen may fail. In truth, these words are equal parts oath and enforceable covenant, for those who fall short of their duty are banished from the order. To fail is to be other than Slithereen.

Once most highly esteemed of her race, Slithice for many years commanded a battalion of her fellows, using her formidable voice as her greatest weapon. Powerful, sinuous, serpentine, she led her deadly Guard in defense of the Deep Ones, and the great wealth of the sunken cities. But in the final battle of Crey, her forces were driven back by a marauding army of levianths intent on finding tribute for their god Maelrawn. After the long and bloody onslaught, as the bodies were cleared from the sunken halls, a single jeweled chalice was found missing from the trove. Of her hundred Guard, only a handful survived, but their bravery and sacrifice were of little consequence. What mattered was that treasure was taken. Honor destroyed. And so Naga Siren was cast out. Banished to search for the stolen chalice. Though she might add a hundred times her weight to the golden trove, she is doomed to live apart until that day she returns that which was taken. For no amount of gold is equal in honor to the honor she lost.

Mirror Image formation

The illusions' formations.

  • After the 0.5-second split time, Naga Siren reappears with her illusions.
    • The reappear locations are based on Naga Siren's position upon cast, with one appearing at the cast location, and the others north, east, south, or west from that point.
    • This means when spawning 3 illusions, the formation is T-shaped and when spawning 4 illusions, it is shaped like a plus.
    • Though the formation is always the same, Naga Siren and her illusions take a random position in the formation and have all the same facing angle.
    • The illusions have a
      2 × IllusionLVL bounty.
  • The distance in between each created illusion is 108-distance if the caster's collision size is 27, and 72-distance if its collision size is 18.
  • Orders the caster to stop after the split time, canceling all queued orders, and orders given during the split time.
    • Also stops all ongoing targeted orders of other units that have been issued before Mirror Image was cast.
  • Successive casts replace the illusions from the previous cast, no matter under whose control they are.

Toggling Autocast on swaps this ability out with Reel In icon Reel In. Their cooldowns are separate.
The only way to escape the onslaught of a Slithereen is to never oppose one in the first place.

  • The net travels at a speed of 1500 (Upgradable by Aghanim's Scepter. 2400).
  • Roots the target, preventing it from moving and casting certain mobility abilities.
  • All illusions owned by Naga Siren within 900 range of the target also cast a fake Ensnare.
    • They play the whole cast animation and release their fake nets at the same time the real net is released.
    • When illusions currently do not have any order and are standing still, they turn to face the target and cast the fake nets.
    • When illusions are moving or attacking, they continue to do so and do not turn to face the target. They still play the cast animation, overriding their move or attack animations.
    • When canceling the cast, the illusions still play the full cast animation, but do not release the fake nets.
    • The fake nets do not interact with anything and do not root.
  • Increases the default cast range to 800/840/880/920.
    • Stacks additively with other sources of percentage-based cast range manipulations, and is calculated after all flat cast range bonuses.

Rip Tide icon
Every 6 attacks from naga and her illusions, the Naga Siren and her images will hit all nearby units with a damaging wave of water that lowers armor for 4 seconds.
Required Hits: 6 (Talent 5)
Radius: Affected by AoE Radius bonuses. 300
Damage: 34/41/48/55 (Talent 59/66/73/80)
Armor Reduction: 2/4/6/8
Duration: 4
Can be used by illusions.
Illusion Notes:
The illusions have independent attack counters.
Rip Tide is only applied around heroes and illusions that have this ability.
Modifiers [?]
A torrent from the Deep Ones crushes the defenses of the Siren's enemies.

  • Each successful attack performed by Naga Siren or her illusions applies the attack counter buff on Naga Siren.
    • If the buff is already present, its stack count gets increased instead.
    • Counts attacks against any enemy unit, except buildings.
    • The counter buff has no duration and lasts indefinitely.
  • When the counter reaches 6 (Talent 5), Rip Tide's effects are applied around all units under Naga Siren's control that have this ability, and the counter buff is removed.
  • Enemies may only be hit by one instance, even when within range of multiple Rip Tides. Neither the damage nor the debuff stack.
  • The damage source of all Rip Tides is the unit that performed the triggering attack, meaning on-damage effects react on the unit that triggered it (e.g. Blade Mail icon Blade Mail).
  • Rip Tide first applies the armor reduction debuff, the Rip Tide damage, then the attack damage.

  • Requires an Ensnare icon Ensnared target to be cast.
    • There is no limit to how many targets, including enemies and allies alike, can be moved by Reel In, as long as they are affected by the net, they are considered an Ensnared target.

    • Fully affects invulnerable units.
    • Reel In does not affect the following units:
  • Upon cast, the Ensnared target is moved towards Naga Siren.
    • Upon the target reaching the 100 min distance, they are no longer moved.
    • The Ensnare target is not disabled during the movement. They can still turn, attack and use items.
    • Reel In only moves the target when it is Ensnared.
  • Sets the target's movement speed to 200 upon cast.
    • If the target gets moved or teleported, the speed does not adapt.

Song of the Siren heals allies by 5% of their Max HP per second for its duration.
Modifiers [?]
Slithice's powerful voice enchants leagues of opponents, while calling her Slithereen kin in a time of need.

  • Applies a sleep on affected units, preventing them from acting until woken up.
  • Song of the Siren's radius is centered on Naga Siren for the entire duration, so if she moves far enough away from affected units, they wake up.
  • All effects are provided by an aura, and its debuff lingers for 0.4 seconds.
    • Restores health in the form of health regeneration for allies within the same aura radius, despite the tooltip stating otherwise.

      • Affects invulnerable, but not hidden allies. Does not affect ally buildings or wards.
      • Can regenerate up to 42% of an ally's max health over its full duration.
  • Song of the Siren cannot be interrupted. Only Naga Siren's death or the Song of the Siren End icon Song of the Siren End sub-ability can stop it.

  • Does not affect Roshan icon Roshan, Animal Courier Radiant minimap icon Couriers, enemy wards or hidden units.
    • Does not affect invulnerable enemy units either, unless their invulnerability is provided by Song of the Siren.

  • Does not grant Song of the Siren icon Song of the Siren if this sub-ability is the last cast ability.

  • The DotA Naga Siren from Warcraft universe sports the same weapons as Slithice, the only difference being that the DotA version had one weapon, and four arms, while the Dota 2 has two weapons and two arms.
  • Song of the Siren's ▶️ sound is based on this ▶️ voice line of Naga Siren. Whether there is an extended version of that line or if the rest of the song was manually put together is unknown.
