Modifiers [?]

  • Does not blink for the full distance when targeting closer than the maximum distance.
  • When point-targeted beyond the maximum blink distance, it blinks using the 960 range penalty distance, towards the targeted direction instead of maximum distance.
    • ↓↓ Double-tapping automatically casts it on the team's fountain, blinking towards its direction using the penalty distance.
  • The second sound only plays when the blinked distance is greater than 960. It is audible to everyone.
  • Overwhelming Blink first applies the debuff, then the damage.
  • Deals damage in 1-second intervals, starting after the debuff is placed for 1 interval.
    • Therefore, 7 damage instance (including initial impact damage) will be dealt in whole duration.
  • Player-based damage, regardless of factions, and Roshan icon Roshan-based damage greater than 0 (after reductions) mutes the item for 3 seconds.
    • Does not get dispelled by self-damage sources and damage flagged as HP Removal.
    • The damage cooldown always triggers, even if the item is dropped, if the item is in the backpack or before being purchased.

Recommended Heroes[]

This upgrade to the Blink Dagger icon Blink Dagger turns it into a much more powerful initiating tool, a disabler, and a quick burst damage dealer. Best used on Strength attribute symbol Strength heroes to take advantage of the AoE damage it deals upon teleporting in proportion to their strength. The slow dealt upon blinking cripples nearby enemies and slows their attack speed, allowing you to catch up on fast targets or simply slow lesser targets to a crawl and weaken their ability to retaliate with right clicks, allowing tanky heroes to take less damage in a unique way.

Since the blink is an AoE disable, you can save your other disables that you normally use after blinking (such as Hoof Stomp icon Hoof Stomp and Dragon Tail icon Dragon Tail) for later until the slow wears off.

In some cases, this item can be useful in the hands of heroes who aren't strength-based. They can still benefit from the AoE damage it deals upon blinking, allowing them to deal damage in teamfights or solo kills just by teleporting. The movement speed and attack speed slow are still useful in crippling the enemy's escape, maneuverability, and retaliation via right clicks.
