Tips[edit | edit source]

  • Most heroes have 25% magic resistance by default, causing Energy Burst to deal 300/375/450/525/600 damage to them, considering no other sources of reduction or amplification.
    • Against a Meepo icon.png Meepo who has 35% base magic resistance, it deals 260/325/390/455/520 damage under the same conditions.
    • Against a Visage icon.png Visage who has 10% base magic resistance, it deals 360/450/540/630/720 damage under the same conditions.

Trivia[edit | edit source]

  • Dagon is the name of an ancient Mesopotamian god.
  • Level 5 Dagon is the most expensive item in the game.
