Tips[edit | edit source]
- Using Blink always requires a hero to face the direction before actually blinking, meaning when not blinking straightforward the hero will not blink instantly but after a slight delay depending on its turn rate.
- Having an Infused Raindrop will allow to completely block damages over time like a Radiance and will not reset the blink dagger's cooldown.
