The Force Staff is an Item purchasable at the Main Shop, under Caster. It is commonly used for chasing and escaping, particularly over terrain obstacles.

[edit] Ability

Force
Ability Affects
Target Unit Units
Pushes any target unit 600 units in the direction it is facing. Double click to self-cast.
Cast Range: 800
Cooldown 20 Mana 25
Partially blocked by Magic Immunity. Can not be used on other magic immune units, but can be used on yourself while magic immune.

Notes:

  • Quick-cast will cause you to use Force on yourself.
  • Force Staff doesn't interrupt the target(allies or enemies)'s channeling, both item and ability. However, it interrupts Meld icon.png Meld and Shadow Amulet
  • Cannot push units out of the leash range of Pounce icon.png Pounce or the AoE of an unfriendly Kinetic Field icon.png Kinetic Field, unless the latter is still in its creation phase.
  • Units are pushed over a 0.4 duration.
  • Can force units over cliffs and through trees (destroying them in the process). However, there are a few ledges and pits that Force cannot cross which will set the item on cooldown without moving the targeted unit.
