Modifiers [?]

  • The attack out of Silver Edge's Shadow Walk has True Strike.
  • Does not interrupt the caster's channeling abilities upon cast.
  • During the fade time, the unit can still cast abilities and use items.
    • Performing an attack removes the Silver Edge buff and applies the 300 damage to the target.
  • 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 bonus damage is not applied when attacking wards and buildings out of invisibility.
  • Applies a break on the target when attacking from invisibility, disabling passive abilities.
  • Places the debuff before the attack damage is applied, but still relies on the attack (or projectile) to hit.
  • The invisibility is lost upon reaching the cast point of abilities, or upon finishing an attack (for Ranged ranged heroes upon projectile launch).
    • This means when the attack misses, the invisibility is still lost.
  • Shares cooldown with other Shadow Blade-based items.

  • Be aware that the Break mechanic has no effect on your opponents' items. If they have a Daedalus icon Daedalus or Butterfly icon Butterfly, for example, they will still receive the full benefits of these items.
  • Consider purchasing this item if the enemy has troubling passives such as Blur icon Blur, Berserker's Blood icon Berserker's Blood, Fury Swipes icon Fury Swipes, Bristleback ability icon Bristleback, Untouchable icon Untouchable and Dispersion icon Dispersion.
  • Remember that abilities using stacks (such as Reactive Armor icon Reactive Armor, Necromastery icon Necromastery and Fury Swipes icon Fury Swipes) are only prevented from gaining or placing new stacks. If the target already has existing stacks (on themselves or on their target), their passive can still function until the stacks expire (such as Reactive Armor's regeneration/armor and Fury Swipes' additional damage).
