Notes:

  • The projectile travels at a speed of 1100.
  • Applies a basic dispel in 0.2-second intervals, starting immediately as the debuff is applied, resulting in 25 dispel instances.
  • Nullifier first applies the dispel, then the debuff.
  • Can be cast on invulnerable units, applying the dispel and the debuff if the invulnerability can be dispelled.
    • However, if the invulnerability cannot be dispelled, the debuff cannot be applied, but can be refreshed, if already debuffed.
  • Despite the internal modification's name. Nullifier does not mute the target.

Tips[]

  • Because this item has a short range and slow projectile speed, it is easier to land from a melee hero with a Blink Dagger icon.png Blink Dagger, Shadow Blade icon.png Shadow Blade or ability to close the distance.
  • A ranged hero may opt for a Scythe of Vyse icon.png Scythe of Vyse especially if they are an Intelligence hero. Note that Hex is dispellable with strong dispels.
  • Use Nullifier on heroes with defensive items like Glimmer Cape icon.png Glimmer Cape, Eul's Scepter of Divinity icon.png Eul's Scepter of Divinity and Ghost Scepter icon.png Ghost Scepter.
  • Since Force Staff icon.png Force Staff is dispellable, Nullifier will stop enemy heroes after they have been pushed a very short distance.
  • Use it on heroes that use dispellable Buffs on themselves to escape or deal/prevent damage like Windrun and Flame Guard.
  • Use it on heroes with illusions to keep track of the real hero.
  • Nullifier's active is one of the very few debuffs that cannot be dispelled at all, making it useful against abilities with strong dispels, such as Dark Pact, Press the Attack, and Aphotic Shield.
