Ability[edit | edit source]

Mirror Image
Ability Affects
No Target Self
Creates 2 images of your hero that last 20 seconds.

Melee images deal 33% damage and take 350% damage, while ranged images deal 28% damage and take 400% damage.
Number of Illusions: 2
Illusion Damage Dealt (Melee): 33%
Illusion Damage Taken (Melee): 350%
Illusion Damage Dealt (Ranged): 28%
Illusion Damage Taken (Ranged): 400%
Illusion Duration: 20
Cooldown 50/35 Mana 165
Can be dispelled. Illusions take purge damage.

Notes:

  • Has 50 seconds cooldown for ranged heroes and 35 seconds cooldown for melee heroes.
  • The user is invulnerable and hidden for 0.1 seconds upon cast.
  • Resets all current attack and spell targeting orders from other units on the owner.
  • The formation of the owner and the illusions is always the same. One spawns on the owner's cast location and the others randomly on north, east, south or west side each.
  • Though the formation is always the same, the owner and the illusions take a random position in the formation and have all the same facing angle.

Tips[edit | edit source]

  • Recommended items to get with Manta Style are those that gives stats, evasion, attack modifiers and auras, such as Heart of Tarrasque icon.png Heart of Tarrasque, Eye of Skadi icon.png Eye of Skadi, Butterfly icon.png Butterfly, Armlet of Mordiggian icon.png Armlet of Mordiggian, Diffusal Blade icon.png Diffusal Blade and Assault Cuirass icon.png Assault Cuirass.
    • Since Manta Style's illusions do not last quite long, Radiance icon.png Radiance is not as wise to build with Manta Style, as the burn damage does not stack and the illusions typical will not last long enough to travel from one area to another and deal the burn damage.
  • Manta Style is typical used to slightly increase damage output or confuse enemies during a teamfight. Since the illusions last only 20 seconds and the fairly high mana cost, it is better to use them together with your real Hero to attack simultaneously instead of using it as a lure for the enemy, unless you have well coordinated with your team.
