Spell lifesteal

From Dota 2 Wiki
Jump to: navigation, search

Spell lifesteal allows the hero to heal from spell damage they deal. Just like attack damage lifesteal, spell lifesteal is calculated by a percentage of the actual damage done to units. However, unlike attack damage lifesteal, it does not heal for overkill damage dealt to a unit, so if a spell's damage exceeded the target's current health and killed it, the heal is based on the target's remaining health.

Sources of Spell Lifesteal[edit]

Spell Lifesteal stacks fully with every other source of attack damage lifesteal and every other attack modifier, except with itself. Spell lifesteal to creeps are usually or 20% of the value to heroes.
