Razor, the Lightning Revenant, is a ranged agility hero who works as a position-based tank/carry that employs his abilities to deal massive damage in a relatively short amount of time, chase down the fleeing injured with his speed, and inflict debuffs on more powerful foes. Razor prefers to keep his position or kite his enemies allowing his spells to unleash its full potential. Known for being a speedy and a great anti-carry hero, Razor specializes in using his opponent's own powers against them, draining them of their damage and using it to smite them, as well as damaging and slowing targets that focus their abilities on him. His ultimate, Eye of the Storm, further enhances his carry-killing powers by inflicting constant, armor-shattering, lightning strikes on the foe with the lowest health within a radius. For those who rely on their pure brute force alone to fight, there is truly no escape from the Underscape.

Bio

Razor minimap icon.png Razor, the Lightning Revenant
▶️ "I bring my lightning whip not to punish souls, but only to hasten them toward the inevitable exit."
Among the emblematic powers that populate the Underscape, Razor the Lightning Revenant is one of the most feared. With his whip of lightning, he patrols the Narrow Maze, that treacherous webwork of passages by which the souls of the dead are sorted according to their own innate intelligence, cunning and persistence. Drifting above the Maze, Razor looks down on the baffled souls below, and delivers jolts of scalding electricity that both punish and quicken the souls as they decide their own fates, hurrying on toward luminous exits or endlessly dark pits. Razor is the eternal embodiment of a dominating power, abstract and almost clinical in his application of power. Yet he has a lordly air that suggests he takes a sardonic satisfaction in his work.

The Lightning Revenant rules the Underscape with plasmatic power.

Notes:

  • Plasma Field interrupts Razor's channeling abilities upon cast.
  • Plasma Field expands and retracts at a speed of 636, taking a total of 2.2 seconds to fully expand and retract.
  • Plasma Field is centered on Razor for the full duration.
    • Provides 700 radius flying vision during the 2.2-second effect, following Razor and leaving a trail of vision which lasts 2 seconds.
  • The effect area is a 100 range wide annulus, a ring shape.
    • The ring starts 105 range away from Razor and expands for up to 700 range, reaching a total distance of 805.
    • Together with the damage width, it can hit units up to 905 range away.
  • The visual effect starts at Razor's location and expands for the same distance.
    • This means the visual effect is 105 range behind the damaging ring, and not centered on it.
  • The damage and movement speed slow are applied upon expanding and upon retracting, so each enemy can be hit twice. The slow debuff fully stacks.
    • This means it can deal up to 70/80/90/100 ‒ 160/230/300/370 ( Talent tree symbol.png 130/140/150/160220/290/360/430) damage and slow for up to 10% ‒ 50%/60%/70%/80% movement speed.
  • The damage and movement speed slow values are based on how far the ring traveled, reaching max values at 805 range.
    • 105 Distance: 35/40/45/50 ( Talent tree symbol.png 65/70/75/80) damage and 5%/5%/5%/5% slow.
    • 205 Distance: 41/51/60/69 ( Talent tree symbol.png 71/81/90/99) damage and 8%/9%/9%/10% slow.
    • 305 Distance: 48/61/75/89 ( Talent tree symbol.png 78/91/105/119) damage and 11%/12%/14%/15% slow.
    • 405 Distance: 54/72/90/108 ( Talent tree symbol.png 84/102/120/138) damage and 14%/16%/18%/20% slow.
    • 505 Distance: 61/83/105/127 ( Talent tree symbol.png 91/113/135/157) damage and 16%/19%/22%/25% slow.
    • 605 Distance: 67/94/120/146 ( Talent tree symbol.png 97/124/150/176) damage and 19%/23%/26%/30% slow.
    • 705 Distance: 74/104/135/166 ( Talent tree symbol.png 104/134/165/196) damage and 22%/26%/31%/35% slow.
    • 805 Distance: 80/115/150/185 ( Talent tree symbol.png 110/145/180/215) damage and 25%/30%/35%/40% slow.
    • 905 Distance: 80/115/150/185 ( Talent tree symbol.png 110/145/180/215) damage and 25%/30%/35%/40% slow.

Razor's polarity channels electricity into his being, draining the power of his opposition.

Notes:

  • Static Link is broken when either unit dies or the link gets stretched more than 800 range. Nothing else can break the link.
    • The distance between Razor and the target is checked right before each damage steal interval. If the distance is greater upon check, the link breaks.
    • Since the link uses the ability's cast range, cast range increasing effects increase the link break distance as well.
  • Static Link provides shared vision over the target while draining.
  • Static Link keeps stealing damage even if the target's damage has reached 0.
  • Drains 1.75/3/4.25/5.5 ( Talent tree symbol.png 3/4.25/5.5/6.75) damage in 0.25-second intervals, starting 0.25 seconds after cast, resulting in 20/24/28/32 ( Talent tree symbol.png 44/48/52/56) instances.
    • Can steal up to 35/72/119/176 damage when draining for the full duration.
    • With the damage steal increasing Talent tree symbol.png talent, it can drain up to 60/102/154/216 damage.
    • With the link duration increasing Talent tree symbol.png talent, it can drain up to 77/144/221/308 damage.
    • With both Talent tree symbol.png talents, it can drain up to 132/204/286/378 damage.
  • Static Link orders Razor to attack the target upon cast, and upon each move order.
    • Allows Razor to move while attacking the Static Link target.
    • To not attack the target while moving, a unit-targeted order, or a ground-targeted order that is not a move or attack order must be given to Razor.
  • Multiple casts of Static Link stack with each other, each cast placing its own debuff on the target and buff on Razor.
    • However, the vision modifier does not stack. It disappears as soon as the first link ends.
    • Only the oldest linked target may be attacked while moving.

Notes:

  • With Aghanim's Shard icon.png Aghanim's Shard, the forked lightning can only proc when an enemy unit lands an attack on Razor, regardless of distance. This means it cannot proc on missed attacks.
  • The forked lightning is applied after the triggering ability takes effect.
    • This means when the casting unit has low enough health to die to it, the triggering ability still takes effect.
  • The search radius is centered around the triggering unit, not around Razor.
    • The targets are choosen randomly, there are no priorities.
    • If triggered by an attack, does not target invisible enemies or enemies inside the Fog of War as secondary targets.
    • If triggered by an ability, does target invisible enemies or enemies inside the Fog of War.
  • The forked lightning first applies the damage, then the debuff.

Ride the lightning.

Notes:

  • Interrupts Razor's channeling abilities upon cast.
  • Eye of the Storm always targets the unit with the lowest current health within the radius first.
    • If there are multiple units with the same lowest health in range, Eye of the Storm chooses between them randomly.
    • The storm prioritizes enemies which have the Static Link icon.png Static Link vision modifier on them, striking them over any other unit when within range, regardless of health values.
    • When there are multiple enemies with the vision modifier within the radius, the storm chooses between them randomly on each strike.
  • The armor reduction debuff on units lasts as long as the storm, or until Razor dies.
  • Eye of the Storm can strike up to 42/50/60 ( Talent tree symbol.png 50/60/75) times and deal up to 2520/3750/5400 ( Talent tree symbol.png 3000/4500/6750) damage per target (before reductions).
  • When Razor turns invisible, Eye of the Storm and its strike turn invisible as well, but still strike nearby enemies without them seeing or hearing them.
  • Eye of the Storm immediately ends when Razor dies.
  • With Aghanim's Scepter icon.png Aghanim's Scepter, the strike does not reduce the armor of buildings, only the damage is applied.
    • Prioritizes units over buildings and fully ignores filler buildings.
    • It also allows it to strike 2 ( Talent tree symbol.png 3) targets at the same time on each interval.
    • An enemy may only be hit by one strike at a time, so a lone target is not hit multiple times per instance.
    • The same rules from above apply for the extra Eye of the Storm target Talent tree symbol.png talent as well.

Complexity: ★☆☆
Playstyle: The whip that ushers the dead through the Narrow Maze brings just as much pain on the battlefield. The Lightning Revenant radiates a Plasma Field that shocks nearby foes, once upon expansion, and again upon contraction. He connects to enemy heroes with a Static Link, transferring their power to his own reserves. Charged by a Storm Surge, Razor hovers effortlessly off the ground, and sends jolts of electricity to those who dare come too close. In the Eye of the Storm, one finds Razor, watching and delighting in his work as bolts of lightning reduce his foes to charred remains.
