Modifiers [?]


  • Interrupts the caster's channeling abilities upon cast.
  • Consumes a charge upon performing an attack, regardless of outcome. For ranged heroes, this is on projectile launch.
  • While active, the user's regular attacks deal magical damage, instead of physical. This includes all bonuses, except for the extra damage of mana break sources.
    • Fully affects all other conditional attack damage bonuses (e.g. bash damage, Fury Swipes, Shadow Blade icon.png Shadow Blade, etc.).
    • Does not affect damage that is dealt in a separate instance. (e.g. Searing Arrows, Desolate etc.).
    • Only affects physical attack damage, pure attack damage (e.g. Upgradable by Aghanim's Shard. Bloodrage) is not affected.
  • Causes cleave and Psi Blades to deal no damage while active, regardless of whether the attack target takes damage or not.
    • Also prevents lifesteal from healing the user while active.
    • Does not prevent splash from dealing damage.
  • Fully works with instant attacks, with each individual instance taking a charge.
    • This means abilities that perform multiple instances in a single cast drain a charge for each instance, not just one charge.
  • Only works while the item is in the inventory. Moving the item into the backpack causes the buff to no longer work, even after moving it back in the main inventory.
  • Replaces the projectile particle of Ranged ranged heroes with a blue projectile.

Witch Blade
Causes your next attack to apply a poison for 4 seconds, slowing by 25% and dealing 1x your intelligence as damage every second. This attack has True Strike.
Intelligence as Damage per Second: 100%
Move Speed Slow: 25%
Duration: 4
Cooldown: 9
Modifiers [?]


  • Successive attacks with Witch Blade do not stack, but refresh the duration instead.
  • The attack first apply the debuff, then its own damage.
  • Deals damage in 1-second intervals, starting 1 second after the debuff is placed, resulting in 4 instances.
  • Shares cooldown with Witch Blade.
    • Witch Blade on Revenant's Brooch uses a custom cooldown system. It places a debuff on the user that prevents it from proccing again.
    • This debuff's duration is affected by percentage-based cooldown reductions upon initially being placed.
    • It is also not affected by cooldown reset sources or by flat cooldown reduction sources.
    • This means it is possible for it to get de-synchronized with Witch Blade's cooldown.

Recommended Heroes[]

Lina icon.png
  • An intelligence hero with low armor and a slow projectile speed, this item compliments Lina very well.
Winter Wyvern icon.png
  • In situations where Winter Wyvern is run core, Revenant's Brooch can be a nice tempo item that synergizes well with Arctic Burn while providing much needed attack speed, armor, damage, and mana regen. The increased projectile speed benefits Arctic Burn.
Nature's Prophet icon.png
  • Intelligence hero, that can easily farm it or buy it as a lategame extension by upgrading a Witch Blade. Amplifies Nature's Prophet's lategame carry potential combined with his high stat gains.
