Soul Burn
Affects
Enemies
Damage
Magical
Silences the target unit for 5 seconds. At the end of the silence, 30% of the damage received while silenced is inflicted as bonus magical damage.
Cast Range: 900
Damage Amplification: 30%
Duration: 5
Cooldown: 18
Mana: 100
Does not pierce spell immunity.
Ability effects persist and attempt to deal damage when expiring while spell immune if debuff was placed before spell immunity and when not dispelled.
Buff/Debuff
Modifiers [?]
modifier_orchid_malevolence_debuff

Notes:

  • Does not directly amplify damage as it is dealt, but rather saves all damage values and deals 30% of it 5 seconds after cast.
  • The damage is applied as soon as the debuff expires. However, dispelling the debuff skips the damage entirely.
    • Recasting Soul Burn on the same target refreshes the duration.
    • Doing this delays the damage further, and gives more time to deal damage to the target.
    • The damage is credited to the last caster of Soul Burn on the target.

Tips[]

  • Orchid is great against Intelligence heroes as they are dependent on their abilities to deal damage, but it is also effective against heroes with escape abilities like Anti-Mage minimap icon.png Anti-Mage or Weaver minimap icon.png Weaver and strong initiation like Faceless Void minimap icon.png Faceless Void or Enigma minimap icon.png Enigma.
  • Get the item quickly before the enemy team gets items able to dispel the silence.

Trivia[]

  • The item's name is likely a reference to the weapon of the same name that can be acquired in the 2002 video game Otogi: Myth of Demons.
