[edit] Abilities

Lightning Chance: 20%

Partially blocked by Magic Immunity. Can be placed on magic immune allied units. Lightning will not strike magic immune enemies.


  • Static Charge cannot trigger more than once per second.
  • Static Charge's lightning deals magical damage, the damage source and secondary targets cannot be more than 900 range away.
  • When shielded unit is damaged, there is a chance that lightning will strike the source of the damage and 4 nearby enemies.
  • Has no effect if cast on a unit that already has a Static Charge active on it.
  • Double clicking on the item will cast Static Charge on yourself.

Chain Lightning
Unique Attack Modifier. Blocked by Magic Immunity. Blocked by Linken's Sphere. Cannot be used by illusions.
Ability Affects Damage
Passive Enemies Magical
When attacking, there is a 25% chance that lightning will strike the target and 7 other nearby enemies.
Chance: 25%
Damage: 160
Bounce Range: 900
Blocked by Magic Immunity. The chain lightning effect from Mjollnir or Maelstrom will work, but will not damage any Heroes that are magic immune.
Blocked by Linken's Sphere. Completely blocked if Linken's holder is primary target. If Linken's holder is secondary target, Linken's will still be activated and the lightning is blocked, but will continue to bounce.

[edit] Tips

  • Mjollnir is very effective against heroes with illusions like Naga Siren, Spectre and particularly Phantom Lancer. As carry, you should consider building this item when playing against these heroes. Because this Unique Attack Modifier stacks with others, you can freely build it for heroes with their own Unique Attack Modifier like Viper.
  • Static Charge triggers on magical damage as well as on damage from physical attacks, so Mjollnir is very effective against heroes who deal damage over time with their spells.

[edit] Trivia

  • Mjölnir is the name of Thor's Hammer in Norse mythology.
