Recommended Heroes[]

Bristleback icon.png
  • Bristleback can proc Spell Lifesteal through the constantly increasing damage from Quill Spray, making this item more useful the longer he is in a fight.
Leshrac icon.png
  • Leshrac has the highest potential ability damage output of any hero, making Spell Lifesteal extremely powerful in his hands. However, his high damage is balanced by high mana costs, which upgrading Voodoo Mask into Bloodstone icon.png Bloodstone solves instantly.
Timbersaw icon.png
  • Reason.
Venomancer icon.png
  • Venomancer's abilities become not just slow painful death for his foes, but also a steady stream of healing when he has a Voodoo Mask, letting him survive fights where he would normally be the first to die.


  • This item is amazing for survival if your hero's damage output mostly consists of area of effect or damage over time abilities.
