Scouts and attacks with his familiars.
Perched atop the Narrow Maze was Visage, a dreadful gargoyle form to which the eternal spirit Necro'lic was bound. Tasked with hunting down those who escape the afterlife, Visage instills Grave Chill in his prey, impairing them while augmenting his speed. He reaps their essence with Soul Assumption, gathering energy from the anguish they felt before releasing it in a devastating attack. Protected by the Gravekeeper's Cloak, the gargoyle's ablative layers deflect both steel and spells. His deadly Familiars scout the land for runaways as Silent as the Grave. On his command, they harass their prey, dropping down to earth as Stone Statues to restrain the captive for their master's impending arrival.

Bio[]

Visage minimap iconVisage, the Bound Form of Necro'lic
▶️ "It is one thing to animate a corpse from beneath the ground. It is another to rip a soul from beyond the veil."
Perched atop the entrance to the Narrow Maze sit the looming shapes of sneering gargoyles, the paths into the hereafter forever in their gaze. Beasts and birds, men and monsters, all creatures that die and choose to travel beyond must someday pass beneath their sight. For an untethered spirit, the decision to journey through the veil of death is irrevocable. When chance comes, and by craft or cunning some restless soul escapes their hells and heavens, it is the dreaded gargoyle Visage, the bound form of the eternal spirit Necro’lic, who is dispatched to reclaim them. Ruthless and efficient, unhindered by the principles of death and fatigue, Visage stalks its prey without mercy or end, willingly destroying all which may give shelter to the fugitive essence. That which flaunts the laws of the afterlife may never rest, for while it is true that the dead may be revived, it is only a matter of time before Visage finds and returns them to their proper place.

Ability Draft Notes
Ability Draft Notes:
The Grave Chill icon Grave Chill buff only affect Visage Familiar icon Familiars and does not affect any other player-controlled units.
The warmth of the sun is never felt in the dark cold of the Narrow Maze.

  • The slow and speed bonus values are independent from each other.
    • Upon cast, Visage gains movement speed based on his current movement speed while the affected target loses movement speed based on theirs.
    • The same applies to the attack speed bonus and its reduction.
    • This also means when either Visage or the target loses the buff/debuff, the other still keeps theirs.
  • The buff is also independently applied to Visage Familiar icon Familiars within 900 range of Visage.
    • Dispelling Visage does not remove the buff on the Familiars.
    • The buff is applied even while they are invulnerable (i.e. Stone Form (Familiar) icon Stone Form), but not when hidden.
    • This buff is not applied to other player-controlled units.
    • Since the buff is not aura-based, Familiars can move away from Visage and still keep the buff after Grave Chill is cast.

The collected souls of the dead reach out to bring another into their fold.

  • The projectile travels at a speed of 1000.
  • Each instance of damage taken by heroes within 1800 radius is saved for 6 seconds or until Soul Assumption is cast.
    • When the sum of the saved damage exceeds 100 damage, a charge is added.
    • A total of 300/400/500/600 damage is needed, within the radius in the last 6 seconds to reach the maximum amount of charges.
  • The number of current charges is visible in the form of yellow bars above Visage. This is visible to Visage and his allies only.
  • Upon cast, Soul Assumption's damage is set and the charges counter is reset upon projectile launch.
    • The projectile's visual appearance also reflects the number of charges, revealing how much damage it is approximately about to deal.
  • With 0/1/2/3/4/5/6 charges, Soul Assumption can deal 20/90/160/230/300/370/440 (Talent 20/115/210/305/400/495/590) damage to the target (before reductions).
  • TALENT
    The Soul Assumption multishot Talent talent launches 1 additional projectile towards random visible valid targets within the range.
    • With the cast range and the range buffer, the ability has a search range of 1300.
    • Cannot target the primary target with the additional projectile, so when no other targets are nearby, nothing happens.
    • The secondary target is chosen randomly within the area, with heroes (including illusions and clones) being prioritized. Treats creep-heroes as creeps.
    • Since the additional projectile uses the ability's cast range, cast range increasing effects increase its range as well.

The Gravekeeper's Cloak icon Gravekeeper's Cloak aura only affect Visage Familiar icon Familiars and does not affect any other player-controlled units.
Upgradable by Aghanim's Shard.
The active component does not require Summon Familiars icon Summon Familiars drafted to work.
Visage's tough scales share equal properties of ghost and stone, making it nearly impervious to blade and magical assault.

  • Upon learning, 4 floating stones appear around Visage, indicating the number of layers he has. A stone disappears for each missing layer.
    • The number of layers can be seen on the status buff icon as well.
    • The recharge time for each layer is independent of all others. Multiple layers can recharge at once if they are removed quickly enough.
    • Damage dealt to Familiars does not remove layers.
  • With 4 layers, the damage reduction is hard capped at 32%/48%/64%/80%.
    • For how much damage reduction is granted per layer, please refer to the chart below.
  • The aura also affects all Visage Familiar icon Familiars under Visage's control, granting them damage reduction based on the current charges on Visage. The buff lingers for 0.5 seconds.
    • Unlike the damage reduction on Visage, this damage reduction has no minimum threshold, reducing all damage they take.
    • The buff is applied even while they are invulnerable (i.e. Stone Form (Familiar) icon Stone Form), but not when hidden.
    • This buff is not applied to other player-controlled units.
    • TALENT
      The Gravekeeper's Cloak armor Talent talent also grants armor to the Familiars.
      • Visage receives this armor bonus from the ability's passive modifier since the aura only affects Familiars.
  • Adds an active component to Gravekeeper's Cloak, with the passive effects still present.
    • Except for the health regeneration values, the other values are taken from Visage Familiar icon Familiars' Stone Form (Familiar) icon Stone Form, based on the current level of Summon Familiars icon Summon Familiars.
    • Can regenerate 4.17% of Visage's max health per second over the duration.
    • Stone Form notes fully apply.
    • If Summon Familiars is not learned, nothing happens upon cast, wasting the mana and cooldown.

Description


Recommended Items[]

Starting items:

  • Tango icon Tango sustains Visage's health during the laning phase, keeping him from returning to base due to enemy harassment.
  • Healing Salve icon Healing Salve also restores health to Visage in the laning stage.
  • Clarity icon Clarity allows Visage to maintain his mana in order to cast his spells in the laning phase, particularly Soul Assumption, which costs roughly half of his base mana pool and can be important for securing kills during ganks.
  • Iron Branch icon Iron Branch is cheap and give Visage a small amount of attributes, a useful way to spend his remaining gold. They can be used with Tango for more health restoration, sold for inventory space, or built into Magic Wand or Mekansm.
  • Magic Stick icon Magic Stick is a useful burst healing/mana item if the enemies in lane will be casting many spells. It can later be built into a Magic Wand.

Early game:

  • Magic Wand icon Magic Wand, built from Magic Stick, gives Visage bonus attributes and increased charge storage for burst regeneration. As a support, Visage can benefit greatly from both if lacking farm.
  • Ring of Basilius icon Ring of Basilius gives Visage's lane increased physical survivability and some mana regeneration to sustain spell casting. Past the laning stage, it can be upgraded to Vladmir's Offering.
  • Boots of Speed icon Boots of Speed are necessary to rectify Visage's poor movement speed. Getting boots as early as possible in the laning phase allows Visage to pursue enemies during ganks, particularly to get within range to cast Grave Chill to slow them.
  • Medallion of Courage icon Medallion of Courage is a powerful utility support item in Visage's hands. The item provides armor and mana regeneration, giving Visage more survivability and maintaining his mana pool. The active allows him to either buff up an ally's armor to help them in fights, or reduce an enemy's armor to increase the amount of damage they take from allies, Visage's attacks, and most importantly his Summon Familiars.

Mid game:

  • Phylactery icon Phylactery gives very cost-effective stats and low cooldown nuke that synergies with Soul Assumption.
  • Solar Crest icon Solar Crest, upgraded from Medallion of Courage, provides many of the same benefits. The increased armor, stats, and mana regeneration give Visage even more tankiness and helps keep his mana topped up even in the late game. Can be used on enemies to slow and increase familiar damage by lowering target armor. Can also be used on a familiar while attacking towers to give +80 attack speed.
  • Vladmir's Offering icon Vladmir's Offering, grants bonus damage, lifesteal, and armor to familiars. 1.75 mana regeneration also helps Visage to maintain the mana pool.

Late game:

  • Assault Cuirass icon Assault Cuirass greatly boosts Visage's armor and attack speed, making him a strong presence in teamfights and ganks. The aura can boost his Familiars' attack speed and reduce enemies' armor to allow the Familiars' attacks to deal additional damage.
  • Orchid Malevolence icon Orchid Malevolence gives Visage many useful benefits, including physical damage output, more mana and mana regeneration. The silence can prevent enemies from casting escape spells during ganks, and deal powerful burn damage from Visage's powerful burst damage at the end of the silence. Can be upgraded into Bloodthorn icon Bloodthorn.
  • Scythe of Vyse icon Scythe of Vyse is a strong support item that, while expensive, provides extremely strong benefits. The all-around attributes, larger mana pool and increased mana regeneration allow Visage to better contribute in teamfights, and the instant hard-disable can be crucial for getting off successful ganks and disabling important targets in teamfights.

Situational items:

  • Glimmer Cape icon Glimmer Cape saves Visage and teammates with magic resistance and invisibility.
  • Force Staff icon Force Staff gives Visage more intelligence, increasing his base damage and the size of his mana pool, and provides some health regeneration. The active allows Visage to quickly re-position himself to cast his spells during ganks and fights, and can act as an escape if needed. It can also be cast on teammates caught out of position in order to save them.
  • Mekansm icon Mekansm gives Visage increased utility and allows him to further support his team through healing them. The increased attributes and armor also vastly boost Visage's durability, making him tankier in fights and allowing him to contribute more. Can be upgraded into Guardian Greaves icon Guardian Greaves.
  • Pipe of Insight icon Pipe of Insight can give Visage increased survivability and utility for his team. The magic resistance allows Visage to weather magic nukes more effectively when Gravekeeper's Cloak is down, and the magic barrier can shield teammates from magic damage during fights.
  • Lotus Orb icon Lotus Orb's Echo Shell deters enemy heroes from using single-target abilities on Visage or affected allies for fear of reflection. Otherwise, it grants armor and regeneration so Visage can survive in battles a little longer.
  • Shiva's Guard icon Shiva's Guard boosts Visage's survivability against physical damage and greatly improves his mana pool and base damage. The active can be used as a slow and nuke, further slowing an enemy alongside Grave Chill and building up damage for Soul Assumption.

Trivia[]

  • Visage has one of the most numerous ability remakes in the game, with Grave Chill icon Grave Chill being his only mainstay:
    • Soul Assumption icon Soul Assumption, in an earlier version, was an autocast enabled attack modifier where he will deal bonus damage and steal the life of his enemies upon death, healing him and leaving no corpse.
    • Gravekeeper's Cloak icon Gravekeeper's Cloak used to be a passive aura where allies in the area will be healed when Visage takes damage, physical or magical.
    • Unknown icon Raise Revenants, his former ultimate, lets him summon up to eight pitch-black, gargoyle-shaped spirits from a corpse. It was likely changed because of it being a very effective scouting tool that makes map control easier. The Revenants had good vision range, a flying attribute, and can be resummoned easily since the ability neither cost a lot of mana nor had a long cooldown. This, along with the fact that the Revenants did not do a lot of damage on their own (attack modifier limits their damage to one-third the stated amount against heroes) and no special abilities give them very limited usage in combat situations.
  • His rival line towards Keeper of the Light minimap icon Keeper of the Light ▶️ "You shall not pass!" is a direct quote from "Gandalf", a character from "The Lord of the Rings". This reference is due to the similarities between Keeper of the Light and Gandalf.[1]
