Notes:

  • Applies a hex on the target, setting its base movement speed to 140, silencing, muting and disarming it.
    • However, the target's movement speed can still be affected by movement speed bonuses from items and abilities.
    • Since Hex sets the base movement speed of the target unit and does not actually apply a slow, all speed effects are calculated using the 140 base speed.
  • Scythe of Vyse's hex transforms the target into a pig.

Trivia[]

  • In the original DotA, this item was known as Guinsoo's Scythe of Vyse, as a tribute to one of the developers of DotA: Allstars, who went on to co-create League of Legends.
  • This item is known by many players (and referred to by several in-game Heroes) as "Sheepstick" due to turning targeted heroes into sheep in DotA. However, in Dota 2, targeted units turn into a pig.
    • The shop's search bar also accepts sheepstick or just sheep as a search term for Scythe of Vyse.
  • The item's name may be a reference to the Sega RPG Skies of Arcadia. The main character, Vyse, has been depicted wielding a scythe in early concept art.
