  • Consider how much spell damage your team produces when deciding whether or not to buy Veil of Discord.
  • Veil of Discord can be a good purchase if your team overall outputs a good amount of spell damage, even if your own hero doesn't. Due to changes to Spell immunity and improved range of Magic Weakness, it can be a reliable item by all means.
  • It compliments nicely for armor reducing debuffs for casters that deal physical damage with their spells. Also benefits as pure and magical damage.
  • Knowing the potentials about magic resistance and armor of the enemy is the main allure of this item. Early game, before anyone can buy a magic resistance artifact or armor, reach their defensive talents or stack enough Strength attribute symbol.png strength or Agility attribute symbol.png agility to resist the spell effects lategame; is when Veil of Discord is most destructive.
  • Thinking standard 25-30% magic resistance of heroes and no other sources to amplify it further; Magic Weakness treats target as 10-15% magic resistance lost. All inflicted targets incur magical damage at 85-90% efficiency along the duration depends on their stats.
  • For physical damage spells, it is roughly equivalent to reducing armor by 3.5 points.
