Modifiers [?]

  • Does not blink for the full distance when targeting closer than the maximum distance.
  • When point-targeted beyond the maximum blink distance, it blinks using the 960 range penalty distance, towards the targeted direction instead of maximum distance.
    • ↓↓ Double-tapping automatically casts it on the team's fountain, blinking towards its direction using the penalty distance.
  • The second sound only plays when the blinked distance is greater than 960. It is audible to everyone.
  • The buff allows the caster to also phase through other units, including wards, but not through buildings.
  • Player-based damage, regardless of factions, and Roshan icon Roshan-based damage greater than 0 (after reductions) mutes the item for 3 seconds.
    • Does not get dispelled by self-damage sources and damage flagged as HP Removal.
    • The damage cooldown always triggers, even if the item is dropped, if the item is in the backpack or before being purchased.
