True Strike
Not a Unique Attack Modifier. Can be used by illusions. Pierces spell immunity.
Prevents your attacks from missing. True Strike does not work when attacking enemy structures.


  • Also prevents melee attacks from missing due to the target moving more than 350 range away before the attack.
  • Does not work against buildings, works against any other unit, including wards and allied units.
  • Does not prevent attacks from getting canceled when the target gets too far away during the attack animation (motion buffer range).

Tips[edit | edit source]

  • Monkey King Bar's True Strike works against every form of miss chance, not only evasion. This means it is also a viable pickup when the enemy has sources of blind.
  • The 35 % chance to mini bash can cancel a channeling spell and also teleportation.

Trivia[edit | edit source]

  • The Monkey King, Sun Wukong, is the subject of the Chinese folk novel Journey to the West. His weapon, Ruyi Jingu Bang (如意金箍棒), is a magical iron rod with ends banded with gold. Although it weighs several tons, the Monkey King can shrink it at will and tuck it behind his ear and It can also grow at will and duplicate into an infinite number of individual rods.
  • The True Strike ability reference however, does not come from the magical rod, but from his eyes, Jin Jing Huoyan (金睛火眼). After he had been trapped in Bagua Lu (八卦爐) 49 days, his eyes was refined into Jin Jing Huoyan, granting him the ability to distinguish demons from humans known as True Sight.
  • Monkey King icon.png Monkey King​'s default weapon model is a Monkey King Bar.
