Modifiers [?]

  • Does not interrupt the caster's or the target's channeling abilities upon cast.
    • Does not have to face the targeted ally to cast Fade on them.
    • ↓↓ Double-tapping automatically target self.
  • During the fade time, the unit can still move, cast abilities, use items, and perform attacks.
  • After the fade time, the unit automatically stops moving or attacking, but it does not stop ability casts.
    • Unlike other sources of invisibility, automatically started attacks aren't canceled during the fade time.
  • While invisible, the unit can turn and pick up or drop items without breaking the invisibility.
    • The unit is also phased, meaning other units can walk through it without getting blocked.
  • The invisibility is lost upon reaching the cast point of abilities, upon performing an attack, or being affected by forced movement, except when the movement is only upwards.
