Aggron Stonebreak, the Ogre Magi, is a melee intelligence hero, famous for his random potential for extreme burst damage and his enormous health pool for an intelligence hero. He has good base attributes, and some of the best attributes gain in the game, having a very high base strength, as well as the highest strength gain of any intelligence hero by far. Coupled with his high base armor and high health regeneration, Ogre Magi is very hard to take down in the early game. He is a powerful ganker and disabler, slowing his enemies first with an Ignite, then proceeding to eliminate his opponents with Fireblast. Later in the game he takes on the role of a buffer/debuffer with his powerful Bloodlust buff, buffing his carry's damage potential enormously. And if you happen to be skilled enough, his ultimate Multicast gives him the opportunity to randomly cast his spells multiple times, allowing for great burst potential. Ogre Magi is a very strong disabler, requiring nothing but a bit of luck to successfully pull off his powerful Multicasts.

Bio[]

Ogre Magi minimap icon.pngAggron Stonebreak, the Ogre Magi
▶️ "Once is not enough!" "It's just as high as we can count."
The ordinary ogre is the creature for whom the phrase 'As dumb as a bag of rock hammers' was coined. In his natural state, an ogre is supremely incapable of doing or deciding anything. Clothed in dirt, he sometimes finds himself accidentally draped in animal skins after eating lanekill. Not an especially social creature, he is most often found affectionately consorting with the boulders or tree-stumps he has mistaken for kin (a factor that may explain the ogre's low rate of reproduction). However, once every generation or so, the ogre race is blessed with the birth of a two-headed Ogre Magi, who is immediately given the traditional name of Aggron Stonebreak, the name of the first and perhaps only wise ogre in their line's history.

With two heads, Ogre Magi finds it possible to function at a level most other creatures manage with one. And while the Ogre Magi will win no debates (even with itself), it is graced with a divine quality known as Dumb Luck—a propensity for serendipitous strokes of fortune which have allowed the ogre race to flourish in spite of enemies, harsh weather, and an inability to feed itself. It's as if the Goddess of Luck, filled with pity for the sadly inept species, has taken Ogre Magi under her wing. And who could blame her? Poor things.

The Ogre Magi is easily amused, entertained for hours by playing with fire.

Notes:

  • Fireblast first applies the damage, then the debuff.
  • When Multicast, Fireblast hits the same target several times in 0.6-second intervals.
  • This is how much damage a multicast Fireblast deals (before reductions) and how long it stuns on each level:
    • 2x Multicast: 140/260/380/500 (Talent 620/740/860/980) damage, 2.1 seconds stun.

Modifiers
Buff modifier_ogre_magi_ignite_multicast: Undispellable. Persists death.
Debuff modifier_ogre_magi_ignite: Dispellable with any dispel.
Batter up!

Notes:

  • Ignite travels at a speed of 1000.
  • The second projectile only targets enemies which do not have the Ignite debuff yet.
  • If multiple enemies which are not ignited yet are within range, chooses the closer target for the second projectile.
  • When Multicast, Ogre Magi launches Ignite projectiles in 0.6-second intervals at random enemy or neutral units within 1600 range.
    • The multicasts launch 2 projectiles per cast as well, just like a regular cast.
    • Cannot target invisible, invulnerable, or hidden units, or units inside the Fog of War.
    • Prioritizes units which do not have the Ignite debuff already.
    • Can hit the same unit multiple times.
  • The debuff from Ignite does not stack with itself. However, a new instance adds its duration to the existing debuff, instead of refreshing it.
  • Deals damage in 1-second intervals, starting immediately as the debuff is placed.
    • When Multicast onto the same target, each projectile applies a damage tick on impact.
    • However, the tick timer gets reset on each impact as well, so that all but 1 of the ticks on impact get canceled out, resulting in average up to:
    • No Multicast: 6/7/8/9 damage instances.
    • 2x Multicast: 11/13/15/17 damage instances.
    • 3x Multicast: 16/19/22/25 damage instances.
    • 4x Multicast: 21/25/29/33 damage instances.
  • This is how much damage Ignite can deal with and without Multicast (before reductions):
    • No Multicast: 120/210/320/450 (Talent 216/322/448/594) damage.
    • 2x Multicast: 220/390/600/850 (Talent 396/598/840/1122) damage.
    • 3x Multicast: 320/570/880/1250 (Talent 576/874/1232/1650) damage.
    • 4x Multicast: 420/750/1160/1650 (Talent 756/1150/1624/2178) damage.

Buff modifier_ogre_magi_bloodlust: Dispellable with any dispel.
'Running's not as fun as hitting... Not one bit fun.'

Notes:

  • Despite the visual effect, the buff is applied instantly on the target upon cast. The projectile has only a visual purpose.
  • When Multicast, instantly applies the Bloodlust buff on random allies within the radius.
  • Causes the target's model size to increase by 25% for its duration. This has no impact on its collision size.
  • With Autocast, Ogre Magi automatically casts this ability on the closest ally hero that does not have the Bloodlust buff on.

Ability Draft Notes
Ability Draft Notes:
Upgradable by Aghanim's Scepter.
This ability is not available in Ability Draft.
The 'who-casts-spell-first' argument between himself is solved simply by both casting at once.

Notes:

  • Ogre Magi can never be out of mana to cast this ability, since it always costs 35% of his current mana pool, rounded down.
    • The tooltip shows the momentary mana cost and updates whenever the mouse cursor is moved over the ability icon.
  • Unrefined Fireblast first applies the damage, then the debuff.
  • When Multicast, Unrefined Fireblast hits the same target several times in 0.6-second intervals.
  • This is how much damage a multicast Unrefined Fireblast deals (before reductions) and how long it stuns on each level:
    • 2x Multicast: 550 damage, 2.1 seconds stun.
    • 3x Multicast: 825 damage, 2.7 seconds stun.
    • 4x Multicast: 1100 damage, 3.3 seconds stun.

Ability Draft Notes
Ability Draft Notes:
Upgradable by Aghanim's Shard.
This ability is not available in Ability Draft.

Notes:

  • Can be cast on any allied, including buildings, excluding wards.
    • Cannot be cast on invulnerable units. However, Multicast can target invulnerable units.
    • ↓↓ Double-tapping automatically targets self.
  • When Multicast, instantly applies the Fire Shield buff on random allies within the radius.
  • The shield only reacts on attacks, meaning the damage reduction only applies to the attack damage dealt from attacks it reacts to.
    • Can only trigger when an enemy unit lands an attack, regardless of distance. This means it cannot trigger on missed attacks.
    • Only reacts on hero attacks, enemy and allied, including clones and illusions, excluding creep-heroes.
  • The fireballs travel at a speed of 1400.
  • The damage source of the fireballs is always the caster of Fire Shield, and not the buffed unit.
  • The number of remaining attacks is visualized by the visual effect, with 1 fire orb orbiting the unit for each remaining instance.
    • A number on the status buff shows the remaining charges as well.
  • Recasting Fire Shield on the same target refreshes the duration and resets the number of attacks.

Ability Draft Notes
Ability Draft Notes:
This ability is not available in Ability Draft.
Despite being largely incapacitated by his IQ, the Ogre Magi's success in battle is attributed to pure skill.

Notes:

  • Besides his own abilities, Multicast can only proc on single-target items when targeting enemies, including neutral items.
    • Multicast only triggers if the targeted unit is an enemy, even for items that can target allies or trees.
    • Multicast items only target enemies, even when the item itself can target allies by default.
    • Does not trigger for Helm of the Dominator icon.png Helm of the Dominator and Helm of the Overlord icon.png Helm of the Overlord.
    • Although it triggers for Urn of Shadows icon.png Urn of Shadows and Spirit Vessel icon.png Spirit Vessel, they do not get their effects multiplied by Multicast.
    • If no other enemies are nearby, Multicast does nothing. It cannot target the same units multiple times.
    • The items are still restricted to their own targeting rules. For example, an item that only targets creeps cannot multicast onto enemy heroes.
  • The range of items Multicast is the total of the item's cast range, Ogre Magi's current cast range and the 600 buffer range.
  • Multicast is resolved in a single roll, rolling from the highest chance to the lowest. This results in the following distribution for each level:
    • No Multicast: 25%/25%/25%
    • 2x Multicast: 75%/45%/45%
    • 3x Multicast: 0%/30%/15%
    • 4x Multicast: 0%/0%/15%.
    • This means each ability is cast 1.75/2.05/2.2 times on average.

Situational items:

  • Orb of Venom icon.png Orb of Venom increases the damage you do while zoning enemies and makes it harder for them to run away from you.
  • Soul Ring icon.png Soul Ring can be picked up in lane to provide additional mana on demand, and Ogre's high health pool for an intelligence hero lowers the risk of using this.

  • Shiva's Guard icon.png Shiva's Guard gives you even more AoE slow in fights and increases your already high armor to phenomenal levels. In addition, the bonus intelligence increases your mana and spell damage by a decent amount.
  • Scythe of Vyse icon.png Scythe of Vyse gives an additional disable, plenty of attributes, and great mana regeneration. The hex works great with Multicast to disable multiple enemies at once.

Complexity: ★☆☆
Playstyle: Ogres were not known for their intelligence. Thankfully, a two-headed ogre is born once every generation, a blessed individual whose combined brainpower puts him on par with the dullest of single-headed creatures. Dubbed Aggron Stonebreak, the Ogre Magi bats orbs of flame to Ignite his playthings, then chases after them in a frenzied Bloodlust. What he lacks in wits, he makes up for with luck. The Ogre Magi possesses an innate chance to Multicast his spells, allowing him to quash enemies by doubling, tripling, even quadrupling the damage from a simple Fireblast.
