The Armlet of Mordiggian is an item purchasable at the Main Shop, under Weapons.

Additional Information[edit]

Heroes can buy multiple Armlets, but the active effect does not stack.

Ability[edit]

Unholy Strength
Ability Affects Damage
Toggle Self HP removal
Gives +31 damage, +10 attack speed, and +25 strength while active, but drains 40 HP per second. You cannot die from the health loss when the bonus strength is gone, or the health drain per second.
Cooldown 0
Can be used by illusions. Illusions will only benefit from the strength gain.

Notes:

  • Strength gain is gradually provided over 0.7 seconds.
  • The health loss rate is 4 HP point per 0.1 second in HP removal damage type, and thus cannot be reduced.
  • Unholy Strength will reduce the bearer's health to a minimum of 1 HP, like Soul Ring, but will not turn itself off unless the player does so.
  • Toggling Unholy Strength will not break channeling abilities.

Armlet toggling[edit]

By turning on the armlet you will gradually gain 475 hp due to the strength it gives you. You lose the health again when you deactivate it, but you cannot go below 1 hp. This can be used to your advantage. If you are below 475 hp, you will lose all but 1 health. When you activate it again (as quickly as possible, so the enemy won't have time to kill you when you're at 1 hp) you will end up with 475 hp, more than what you had before. This can make you survive much longer assuming sufficient burst damage is not received.

Tips[edit]

  • This item is very good with lifesteal, because when activated together your damage output with lifesteal will make up for the 40 hp per second loss.

Trivia[edit]

  • Armlet of Mordiggian is named after Mordiggian, a deity in the Cthulhu Mythos created by Clark Ashton Smith in his story The Charnel God (1934), whose powers consist of sucking away life force and whose cult consists entirely of ghouls.
  • Lone Druid's Spirit Bear is normally affected by the HP drain, and does not benefit from the strength bonus.
