Black King Bar
From Dota 2 Wiki
| Black King Bar|
|A powerful staff imbued with the strength of giants.|
- One Black King Bar grants a total of 200 health, 0.6 health regeneration and 24 (34 to strength heroes) attack damage.
- Interrupts the user's channeling spells upon cast.
- During Avatar, the hero cannot be affected by Ghost Scepter or by Ethereal Blade. These buffs get removed immediately.
- Causes the user's model size to increase by 30% for its duration. This has no impact on its collision size.
- The duration of Avatar is bound to the hero. Re-buying Black King Bar does not reset it.
- For more details, including a list of spells which are not blocked, see Spell immunity.

- When facing a lot of magical damage or many disables, a Black King Bar alone can provide enough survivability, allowing carry heroes to focus on damage items after having Black King Bar.
- Vice versa, Black King Bar is not effective against physical damage, or spell immunity piercing spells, so other items for survivability should be considered (e.g. armor items against physical damage, or escape items against some spells).
