[edit] Ability

Blink
Ability Affects
Target Point Self
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.
Cooldown 12 Mana 0

Notes:

  • Taking damage from Roshan or player-controlled units will also disable Blink for 3 seconds.
  • Double clicking will blink the player in the direction of their Fountain. But notice it only will cause to blink 4/5 of the max distance (960 Units).
  • Blink Dagger can be used to disjoint spell projectiles, such as Vengeful Spirit's Magic Missile, but some abilities such as Windranger's Shackle Shot can not be disjointed.
  • Trying to blink outside of the maximum range will cause it to blink 4/5 of the max distance (960 Units).

[edit] Trivia

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