Heals and damages at the sacrifice of its own health.
With stellar flame emanating from its terrestrial form, the Icarus Dives the battlefield in an arc, setting ablaze all who pass beneath its wings. Within its ever-collapsing core sprang short-lived Fire Spirits, paroxysms of conscious light that burned with debilitating flame. From afar the firebird beams its Solar Flames, scorching foes, yet nurturing allies. By its own celestial timing, the son of suns ends its current life in a Supernova, radiating intense heat until the mass explodes, restoring Phoenix to its form through the glory of rebirth.

Bio[]

Phoenix minimap iconPhoenix
▶️ *Chirp!*
Alone across an untouched darkness gleamed the Keeper's first sun, a singular point of conscious light fated to spread warmth into the empty void. Through aeons beyond count, this blinding beacon set to coalescing its incalculable energy before bursting forth the cataclysmic flare of supernova. From this inferno raced new beacons, star progeny identical to its parent, who journeyed an unlit ocean and settled in constellatory array. In time, they too would be made to propagate through supernova flame. So would this dazzling cycle of birth and rebirth repeat until all skies hewn of Titan toil deigned to twinkle and shine.

By this ageless crucible the star that mortals would come to call Phoenix collapsed into being, and like its ancestors was thrust into an endless cosmos to find a place among its stellar brethren. Yet curiosity toward that which the dimming elders comfort in the darkness consumed the fledgling, and so over long cycles it inquired and studied. It learned that among worlds both whole and broken would soon stir a nexus of remarkable variety locked in an enduring conflict of cosmic consequence, a plane which would find itself in need of more influence than a dying sun's distant rays could provide. Thus this infant son of suns took terrestrial form, eagerly travelling to shine its warmth upon those who may need it most, and perhaps seize upon its solar destiny.

Phoenix dives forward in an arc with a fixed distance in the targeted direction, dealing damage over time and slowing the movement speed of any units it comes into contact with, and then orbiting back to its original position. If Phoenix casts Supernova, the dive ends.

Though no stranger to travelling the cosmic void, soaring within an atmosphere offers unique pleasures.

  • Icarus Dive cannot be cast during Supernova icon Supernova.
    • Casting Supernova during Icarus Dive immediately ends the dive.
  • Phoenix can attack, cast and channel abilities while diving.
    • However, Sun Ray icon Sun Ray is inactive during the dive, and cannot be cast.
    • During Icarus Dive, Phoenix does not need to turn to cast targeted abilities or items.
  • Icarus Dive does not disjoint projectiles.
  • Phoenix dives in an ellipse with a major axis length of 1100/1200/1300/1400 (Talent 2100/2200/2300/2400) and a minor axis length of 500.
    • This results in a total path of 2602.44/2784.8/2968.87/3154.41 (Talent 4480.83/4673.03/4865.71/5058.83), which Phoenix covers in 2 (Talent 3) seconds.
    • This means Phoenix dives at an average speed of 1301.22/1392.4/1484.44/1577.21 (Talent 2240.41/2336.52/2432.86/2529.41).
    • The dive speed is not constant. Phoenix starts at 0, accelerates until halfway through max distance, then slows down towards max distance, then repeats the process on the way back.
  • Destroys trees within a 200 radius around Phoenix during the dive.
  • Phoenix always dives clockwise, hitting units on the left side of the dive first.
    • Since the minor axis length value is less than its effect radius, units right in the middle of the arc might not be hit.
  • Deals damage in 0.2-second intervals, starting 0.2 seconds after the debuff is applied, ending 0.2 seconds after the last damage instance is over, resulting in 19 instances.
    • Deals 3/7/11/15 damage in one damage instance, totally can deal up to 57/133/209/285 damage to a single unit (before reductions).
  •  /  Immediately ends upon losing ability.

The vent through which such stellar energy flows is mere atoms wide.

  • Sun Ray cannot be cast during Icarus Dive icon Icarus Dive and Supernova icon Supernova.
    • Casting Supernova during Sun Ray immediately ends it. Casting Icarus Dive during it does not end it.
    • Casting Supernova during Sun Ray no longer ends it, and this ability now becomes castable during Supernova.
  • The 6% current health as cost per second counts as setting health.
    • Drains 1.2% of current health in 0.2-second intervals, starting 0.2 seconds after cast, ending 0.2 seconds after the last drain instance is over, resulting in 29 drain instances in 6 seconds.
    • This results in a total health cost of 29.54% of Phoenix's initial current health on cast to sustain the full 6 seconds.
  • For better readability, the turn rate during Sun Ray is given as degrees per second, instead of radians per 0.03 seconds.
    • 25° per second equal a turn rate of 0.013.
  • Has 175 non-lingering ground vision around the ray for the duration.
  • Sun Ray sets Phoenix's movement speed to 0 (has priority over hastes) and disarms Phoenix for its duration, so it cannot move or attack.
    • Attack orders behave like move orders during disarms, so a Keyboard White Mouse Right Right Click on an enemy sets a new location as well.
  • Phoenix can cast and channel abilities during Sun Ray.
    • During Sun Ray, Phoenix does not need to turn to cast targeted abilities or items.
  • First deals heal, next for damage, then applies the movement speed slow, finally blinds to all affected targets in 0.2-second intervals, starting 0.2 seconds after cast, ending 0.2 seconds after the last heal/damage instance is over, resulting in up to 29 instances of heal, damage and slow per unit.
  • Stacks additively with other sources of blind.
    • Blind uses pseudo-random distribution.
    • Increases the miss chance by 2% per damage instance.
    • Successive blind debuff on the affected units increase the stack count and fully refreshes the whole stack's duration.
  • Initially, the beam deals 14/20/26/32 + 1%/2.75%/4.5%/6.25% (Talent 2.5%/4.25%/6%/7.75%) of the affected units' max health as damage per second.
    • For each passing 0.2 seconds, the damage increases by 0.467/0.667/0.867/1.067 + 0%/0.1%/0.2%/0.2% (Talent 0.1%/0.1%/0.2%/0.3%) of their max health.
    • In 6 seconds, the damage reaches 28/40/52/64 + 2%/5.5%/9%/12.5% (Talent 5%/8.5%/12%/15.5%) of theirmax health per second. At this point, the ray stops.
    • Can deal up to 126/180/234/288 + 9%/24.75%/40.5%/56.25% (Talent 22.5%/38.25%/54%/69.75%) of max health as damage (before reductions) when an enemy is hit for its full duration.
  • Initially, the beam heals for 7/10/13/16 + 0.5%/1%/1.5%/2% of the affected units' max health per second.
    • For each passing 0.2 seconds, the heal increases by 0.233/0.333/0.433/0.533 + 0%/0%/0.1%/0.1% of their max health.
    • In 6 seconds, the heal reaches 14/20/26/32 + 1%/2%/3%/4% of their max health per second. At this point, the ray stops.
    • Can heal up to 63/90/117/144 + 4.5%/9%/13.5%/18% of max health when an ally is hit by the beam for the full duration.

  • Supernova turns Nighttime nighttime into Daytime daytime for its duration.
  • Resets Phoenix' and the affected ally's basic abilities, and replenishes their mana upon cast. Does not resets the cooldowns of items and ultimates.
    • If the sun survives, the affected targets' health and mana get replenished at the end of the duration.
    • The health replenished counts as setting health.
    • The mana replenished counts as restoring mana.
      • This can be defined as
        expr
        ManaRestored = MaxMana - CurrentMana
  • The area damage is provided by an aura and its debuff lingers for 0.5 seconds.
    • Deals damage in 0.2-second intervals, starting 0.2 second after the debuff is applied, resulting in up to 32 possible instances at most.
    • Deals 12/18/24 damage in one damage instance, totally can deal up to 384/576/768 damage to a single unit (before reductions) when it stays in range for the full duration.
    • The source of the damage is the Phoenix, not the sun itself, and fully benefits from spell amplification.
  • Destroying the sun instantly kill and credit Phoenix and the ally's death to its destroyer.
    • The sun is a ward-type unit, it can be denied once it drops below 50% max health. Doing so also denies Phoenix and the ally.
  • Destroys trees within a 500-side length rectangular around Phoenix upon cast.
  • Adds single-target functionally to Supernova with a 500 cast range.
    • The cast range is only for selecting an ally hero within the range. The sun still appears in Phoenix's current location.
    • Treats illusions and clones as heroes.
    • The targeted ally is prevented from acting during Supernova, on top of the same effects that are applied to Phoenix during it.
    • If the sun gets destroyed and Phoenix has Reincarnation, the ally is released with its health, mana and cooldowns unaffected.
    • If the sun gets destroyed and the ally inside has Reincarnation, it reincarnates while Phoenix dies.
    • Other Supernova notes fully apply.
  • Sun Ray icon Sun Ray now becomes castable during Supernova, and casting Supernova during Sun Ray no longer ends it.
    • However, since Phoenix is also rooted, it can neither move nor use the Toggle Movement icon Toggle Movement sub-ability during it.
    • Phoenix can still turn in place and change the Sun Ray's direction, but the Stop Sun Ray icon Stop Sun Ray sub-ability cannot be used.
    • If Supernova is cast during Sun Ray, it can immediately be cast again once it ends, due to Supernova refreshing its cooldown upon cast.
    • If Supernova ends during Sun Ray, the ability continues normally, and its sub-abilities become usable again.
  • Does not instantly kill Rubick minimap icon Rubick upon losing the ability. Although Supernova notes fully apply, Rubick is able to cast the latest acquired ability if the Spell Steal icon Spell Steal projectile reaches him while already within the Phoenix Sun icon Phoenix Sun.

Recommended Items[]

Starting items:

  • Tango icon Tango provides health sustain as all of Phoenix non-ultimate abilities have health costs.
  • Healing Salve icon Healing Salve also restores health to Phoenix.
  • Clarity icon Clarity restores mana for Fire Spirits and Sun Ray.
  • Iron Branch icon Iron Branch gives Phoenix cheap attributes, and can later build into either Magic Wand icon Magic Wand or Mekansm icon Mekansm; alternatively, you can use it with Tango to boost healing.
  • Wind Lace icon Wind Lace gives some movement speed bonus and will upgrade to Tranquil Boots icon Tranquil Boots.

Early game:

  • Tranquil Boots icon Tranquil Boots gives health regeneration to offset the health costs of Phoenix's abilities, especially when firing Sun Ray. The high movement speed bonus allows Phoenix to travel to the right lanes or teamfights as quickly as possible.
  • Magic Stick icon Magic Stick provides burst health and mana so Phoenix can stay alive and use abilities.
  • Urn of Shadows icon Urn of Shadows restores health followed hero deaths, or perhaps adds more DPS to help with ganks. The mana regeneration also sustains abilities.

Mid game:

  • Magic Wand icon Magic Wand grants attributes and burst health and mana.
  • Hand of Midas icon Hand of Midas aids Phoenix to quickly obtain enough experience for level 3 Supernova and later talents as they increase survivability to ensure reborn and stun.
  • Veil of Discord icon Veil of Discord reduces enemy magic resistance, letting Phoenix's abilities deal great damage. Its bonus armor, health regeneration, and intelligence increases survivability and ability usage.
  • Spirit Vessel icon Spirit Vessel, upgraded from Urn of Shadows, gives extra health and movement speed to Phoenix. The active can heal allies and counter enemies with high regeneration.

Late game:

  • Shiva's Guard icon Shiva's Guard has attack speed slow aura that aids in the Phoenix Sun's survivability. Use Arctic Blast right before Supernova to slow enemy movement speed, keeping them in range of the Sun. Since Arctic Blast takes more than 2 seconds to build up to maximum radius, activate it a little while before Icarus Dive to cover as much area as possible during the dive.
  • Lotus Orb icon Lotus Orb increases Phoenix's survivability by giving it armor and regeneration. Its active ability dispels silences and other debuffs, and may deter enemy heroes from placing targeted abilities on Phoenix for fear of reflection.

Situational items:

  • Tome of Knowledge icon Tome of Knowledge helps Phoenix reach higher levels of Supernova and talents, improving its survivability and contribution in fights.
  • Kaya icon Kaya further increases Phoenix's damage output, and its mana cost reduction and intelligence is invaluable to the caster-type Phoenix.
  • Aghanim's Scepter icon Aghanim's Scepter is more for a support role Phoenix, turning Supernova into a very powerful "heal". It is more effective on heroes with long cooldowns on non-ultimate abilities (such as Terrorblade minimap icon Terrorblade or Invoker minimap icon Invoker) or gets into skirmishes often (such as Sven minimap icon Sven or Spectre minimap icon Spectre), but saving any ally from certain death should be great enough on its own. Unlike when initiating, Supernova is best preferably used far away from enemy heroes to increase the chances of having the Sun survive.
  • Eul's Scepter of Divinity icon Eul's Scepter of Divinity gives high mana regeneration, allowing Phoenix to use Fire Spirits and Sun Ray more often. Its active not only dispels debuffs, but may also come in handy in having an actual instant interrupting ability for channeling enemies, and if Phoenix is silenced during Icarus Dive: Using the active on yourself while Diving and silenced stops Phoenix mid-Dive, preventing Phoenix from circling back to its original location.
  • Rod of Atos icon Rod of Atos gives health and mana to Phoenix, allowing more ability spam with the increased mana pool; its active root can keep enemies in place to take more of your abilities' damage.
  • Heaven's Halberd icon Heaven's Halberd deals with enemy heroes with quick attack speed, such as Troll Warlord minimap icon Troll Warlord or Clinkz minimap icon Clinkz. The additional strength can also aid in Phoenix's survivability. The disarm also persists through spell immunity.
  • Pipe of Insight icon Pipe of Insight gives health regeneration and magic resistance, giving Phoenix and its team even more survivability in teamfights.
  • Guardian Greaves icon Guardian Greaves restores health and mana in a radius, as well as remove debuffs from Phoenix. The increasing health regeneration and armor upon reaching low health is great for Phoenix's constantly dwindling health.
  • Radiance icon Radiance adds area damage and applies miss chance to enemies, perhaps key for a successful Supernova.
  • Heart of Tarrasque icon Heart of Tarrasque grants lots of health, strength, and health regeneration to supply abilities' health costs. It provides enough survivability so Phoenix always has a chance to activate Supernova.
  • Octarine Core icon Octarine Core increases health and mana substantially, and the cooldown reduction means Phoenix can re-enter a fight much more quickly than before.
  • Refresher Orb icon Refresher Orb should only be bought if the player is sure on how to make the most of it. It is best to not use Refresher Orb immediately after Supernova as the ultimate already refreshes Phoenix's other abilities, making Refresher's active rather pointless. Instead, spend the other abilities first, then refresh so you may perhaps have a third Icarus Dive/Fire Spirits/Sun Ray to use and a second Supernova to refresh them.
