Additional Information[]

Rune of Shield prev
  • Power Runes
    • Power runes start spawning at the 6:00 minute mark, and then every 2 minutes (8:00, 10:00, 12:00, etc.)
    • They spawn at one of the rune spots within the river, which is randomly chosen.
    • If a Power Rune is not picked up before the next one spawns, it disappears.
    • Power Runes never repeat a rune within a cycle, meaning if a specific rune spawned, it cannot spawn again until all other Power Runes have spawned as well.
    • The same Power Rune cannot spawn twice in a row, meaning the first rune of the next cycle cannot be the same as last rune of the previous cycle.

Unknown icon

Buff icon

  • Applies a All Damage Barrier universal damage barrier on the hero that absorbs damage values of all damage types, causing several on-damage effects to not trigger within its capacity.
    • Stacks additively with the same damage-type barrier sources, and independently with other damage-type barrier sources.
    • Universal damage barrier has the lowest priority in the group of damage barriers, its capacity is depleted last when combined with other damage-type barriers.
    • However, when combined with other higher-priority damage-negating sources (e.g. Borrowed Time icon Borrowed Time or Refraction icon Refraction), the Shield Rune does not absorb any damage until the damage-negation sources expire.
  • Successive buffs of multiple Shield Runes do not stack but refresh the duration instead.
