Buff Invisible: Dispellable with any dispel.

Notes:

  • Does not interrupt the user's channeling spells upon cast, neither when cast on self, nor when cast on allies.
  • If the target is more than 1050 range away, the caster moves to the target until it is within 800 range before casting.
  • When casting on allies, the user does not have to face the targeted ally to cast it. Does not interrupt the target's channeling spells.
  • Places a buff on an allied hero. As long as this buff stays on it, the hero keeps on turning invisible.
  • The fade time is reset and invisibility is lost upon reaching the cast point of spells or items or upon performing an attack.
  • While invisible, the unit can pick up or drop items without having to go through the fade time again.
  • While invisible, the unit is phased, meaning other units can walk through it without getting blocked.
  • The magic resistance is only applied when fully invisible. It is not applied during the fade time.

Tips[edit | edit source]

  • Assuming no sources of magic resistance other than the wearer's Glimmer Cape itself and base magic resistance, the Glimmer active ability reduces the amount of magic damage taken to 35.06% if used on the wearer and 41.25% if used on an ally (respectively 30.39% and 35.75% on Meepo, or 42.08% and 49.5% on Visage).
