Modifiers
modifier_silencer_curse_of_the_silent
Nortrom's lack of incantations is less of a problem for him than it is for his adversaries.

  • Curse of the Silent is dispelled when the affected hero casts a spell.
  • Successive casts of Curse of the Silent place always new, independent debuffs. This includes the curse applied by Global Silence icon Global Silence.
  • Cannot curse invulnerable or hidden units, however, if a unit turns invulnerable or hidden while being cursed, it still loses mana.
  • Damages and burns mana in 1-second intervals, starting 1 second after the debuff is applied, resulting in 6 instances.
  • Can deal up to 120/210/300/390 damage (before reductions) and burn up to 48/96/144/192 mana on a single unit.
  • Applies the mana loss first on each tick, and then the damage.

Starstorm icon
Affects
Enemies
Damage
Magical
Calls down a wave of meteors to damage each nearby enemy once.
Channel Time: 1.99
Radius: 900
Damage: 75/150/225/300
Cooldown symbol
 6
Mana symbol
 100/115/130/140

  • The meteors start spawning after 1 second of channeling and need approximately 0.57 seconds to hit their targets.
  • Meteors may spawn at any time after having channeled for 1 second, but require Silencer to keep channeling in order to spawn.
  • If Silencer is not channeling as the meteor hits the target, it deals no damage. Silencer must channel until the meteor hits for it to deal damage.
  • This sometimes leads to meteors dealing no damage without being able to do anything against that.
    • This happens when a meteor spawns too late. Since the spell can be only channeled for 1.99 seconds, meteors spawning at later than ~1.42 seconds deal no damage.

    • However, Silencer needs to be alive as the kill happens to steal the intelligence.
  • Cannot steal intelligence from illusions or hero clones.
    • When Silencer kills a Meepo minimap icon Meepo clone however, he does steal intelligence, since killing a Meepo clone also kills the main Meepo.
  • Cannot reduce enemy base intelligence below 1. Silencer also does not gain intelligence from heroes that are at 1 intelligence.
  • Talent The bonus intelligence steal does not apply retroactively, meaning that taking the talent will not increase the amount of intelligence already stolen.

    • Enemy intelligence heroes effectively lose 24 (Talent 48) mana, 0.1 (Talent 0.2) mana regen, 0.14% (Talent 0.28%) spell damage, and 2 (Talent 4) attack damage.
