Teleport to a target point up to 1200 units away. If damage is taken from an enemy hero, Blink Dagger cannot be used for 3 seconds.
Cast Range: Global
Max Blink Distance: 1200
Cooldown 12

Notes:

  • Double clicking the item automatically casts it on your team's fountain, blinking towards its direction.
  • Does not blink for the full distance when targeting closer than its max distance.
  • When targeting beyond the max blink distance, it blinks for 960 range towards the targeted direction, instead of 1200.
  • Damage greater than 0 (after reductions) coming from any player (including allies and self) and Roshan puts the dagger on a 3 second cooldown.
  • Since it is a 3 second cooldown and not actually disabled, it can be refreshed with Refresher Orb icon.png Refresher Orb and Rearm icon.png Rearm.

Trivia[edit]

  • In the original DotA, this item was called Kelen's Dagger, in reference to a Warcraft III item, Kelen's Dagger of Escape.
