Bio[]

Ursa minimap iconUlfsaar, the Ursa Warrior
▶️ "It is my spirit that keeps me safe, and not mere armor."
Ulfsaar the warrior is the fiercest member of an ursine tribe, protective of his land and his people. During the long winters, while the mothers sleep and nurse their cubs, the males patrol the lands above—as tireless, vigilant defenders of their ancient ways. Hearing dim but growing rumors of a spreading evil, Ulfsaar headed out beyond the boundaries of his wild wooded homeland, intending to track down and destroy the threat at its source, before it could endanger his people. He is a proud creature with a bright strong spirit, utterly trustworthy, a staunch ally and defender.

  • Earthshock and the Enrage buff is applied upon losing the leap buff.
    • If the leap gets interrupted in any way, Earthshock is applied at Ursa's current location.
  • Earthshock first applies the debuff, the damage, then the Fury Swipe stacks.
  • Successive debuffs refresh its duration but do not update its ability values.
  • Earthshock now applies the current level of Enrage icon Enrage upon cast.
    • Enrage notes fully apply. If it is not learned, no buff is applied.
    • Only the incoming damage reduction and status resistance bonus are applied. Other of Enrage's cast effects (e.g. strong dispel) are not applied.

For a behemoth of his size, Ursa is deceptively nimble.

  • A charge is consumed whenever an attack is executed. Therefore, missed attacks use up charges as well.
  • The number of remaining charges is visible on the buff icon. The buff and the visual effects of the ability are visible to everyone.
  • Successive casts do not stack but refresh the whole amount of charges and the buff duration instead.

In nature, the wounded rarely survive the attacks of hungry predators.

  • Fury Swipe's damage is considered as a conditional attack damage bonus.
    • Although the attack damage bonus values are not displayed in the HUD, it is still considered and directly added to Ursa's attack damage.
    • The attack damage bonus values are not considered by critical strike.
    • However, it is considered by lifesteal and cleave, and it can be reduced only by flat reductions (e.g. damage block).
    • Since it is considered bonus attack damage, it is not affected by percentage-based attack damage bonuses or reductions.
  • On each attack Fury Swipes first adds 1 stack and then deals damage based on the stack count.
    • This means that the bonus attack damage is applied even with the first attack.
    • Each successful attack refreshes the duration, ability and Talent talent upgrade values of the whole stack. Missed attacks neither place the buff, nor add a stack or refresh it.
    • The number of Fury Swipe stacks is visible on the debuff icon placed on affected units.
  • For how much damage Fury Swipe deals on each level, and the total damage it accumulates over a certain amount of attacks, please refer to the chart below.
  • TALENT
    The stack duration increasing Talent talent does not increase the debuff duration against Roshan icon Roshan.

Description
  • Reduced base health from 200 to 120.


Recommended Items[]

Starting items:

  • Tango icon Tango provides health regeneration in lane.
  • Iron Branch icon Iron Branches can be used to make a Magic Wand and provide cheap, efficient attributes for the early game.

Early game:

  • Boots of Speed icon Boots of Speed are essential for most heroes but particularly Ursa as it allows him to chase down enemies to get into Earthshock icon Earthshock range, as well as reducing down-time while jungling.
  • Wind Lace icon Wind Lace if the enemy laner has more movement speed than Ursa, this gives him enough movement speed to continue chasing them down.
  • Morbid Mask icon Morbid Mask naturally synergizes well with Ursa's high physical damage, greatly increasing his staying power on the map. It also gives him a tool to take on Roshan.

Mid game:

  • Phase Boots icon Phase Boots provide Ursa with additional chasing power, as well as attack damage to bolster his already high damage output.
  • Magic Wand icon Magic Wand may be useful to supplement Ursa's poor mana pool and save him from bad situations.
  • Battle Fury icon Battle Fury enables Ursa to still farm fast despite having early impact through fights. Additionally it helps with his mana issues in the beginning of the game.
  • Blink Dagger icon Blink Dagger is used for picking off heroes or initiating fights as it gives Ursa the option to pounce on an enemy hero with Earthshock icon Earthshock and rapidly kill them. This can either be upgraded later into Overwhelming Blink icon Overwhelming Blink for an extra AOE burst to cast alongside Earthshock icon Earthshock, or opt for Swift Blink icon Swift Blink to chase faster thanks to the bonus phased movement speed provided upon cast.
  • Black King Bar icon Black King Bar protects Ursa against disables, so he can keep hitting the enemies at close range.

Late game:

  • Abyssal Blade icon Abyssal Blade's stun is useful for locking down slippery carries. The bash also synergizes well with Overpower as it gives Ursa high attack speed for more chance to proc.
  • Satanic icon Satanic builds from Morbid Mask, improves Ursa's health and attack damage, and allows Ursa to fully heal in an instant with Unholy Rage.
  • Nullifier icon Nullifier applies a continuous dispel to prevent enemies from escaping Ursa with buffs like Ghost Scepter and Glimmer Cape.

Situational items:

  • Linken's Sphere icon Linken's Sphere is a great item against Disarm and Silence and other heroes possessing powerful single-target spells. It should be bought if Black King Bar icon Black King Bar cannot stop the enemy from locking you down.
  • Boots of Travel icon Boots of Travel makes Ursa very mobile and allows him to defend his base or push enemy towers.
  • Desolator icon Desolator is often unnecessary due to Ursa's sheer damage potential but can be used to supplement allied physical damage dealers, especially against enemies with high armor, and allows Ursa to tear down buildings faster.
  • Sange and Yasha icon Sange and Yasha provides some easy-to-build HP and movement speed on Ursa, so if a Blink Dagger or Shadow Blade is not viable in the game, consider this item for some added mobility and tank. It can also be disassembled to create a Heaven's Halberd icon Heaven's Halberd and Manta Style icon Manta Style later in the game to provide evasion and debuff removal respectively.
  • Scythe of Vyse icon Scythe of Vyse grants a powerful hex that lasts longer than Abyssal Blade and has longer range, but offers few useful passive bonuses.
  • Diffusal Blade icon Diffusal Blade improves Ursa's attack damage and rapidly burns mana with Overpower, and can slow enemies to keep them in range of Ursa.

Trivia[]

  • In DotA, Ulfsaar's alternate name was "Fuzzy Wuzzy". This is referenced in one of his spawning lines, where he calls herself ▶️ "Fuzzy Wuzzy". He does not use his actual name, Ulfsaar, in any of his responses. Lone Druid minimap icon Lone Druid is the only one who calls her Ulfsaar.
  • In Latin, the word "ursa" means bear. In Portuguese, however, it specifically refers to a female bear. Despite this, Ulfsaar is clearly depicted as male both in his bio (where it is referred to as a "he") and in his in-game dialogue.
  • When killing Batrider minimap icon Batrider, he makes reference to the 1940's Anti forest fire mascot "Smokey the Bear".
