Hex (or Sheep or Polymorph) is used to refer to a type of status effect that transforms the affected unit into a critter, silencing and disarming a target and setting its base movement speed to 100. Hexed targets are muted (cannot activate items and spells), in addition to having some passives disabled, such as evasion, and damage block.

Hex shuts off all abilities on heroes except the following:

Hex disables True Sight granted by Gem of True Sight, burn damage from Radiance, Evasion, and Damage Block. Both innate evasion/damage block and item-based evasion/damage block are disabled.

Hex does not affect magic resistance, does not affect armor, and does not dispel any buffs or debuffs.

Hex sets the target's BASE movement speed to 100 ms, meaning that a target carrying Boots will move at 150 ms, a target without boots carrying a Yasha will move at 110 ms, units under the effect of Shapeshift or Surge will still move at 522 ms, and so on.

All current methods of applying the hex effect to a target will trigger, and be blocked by, Linken's Sphere and are unusable on a target with Magic immunity.
