Ability[edit | edit source]

Soul Burn
Ability Affects Damage
Target Unit Enemies Magical
Silences the target unit for 5 seconds and amplifies the damage it takes by 30%.
Cast Range: 900
Damage Amplification: 30%
Duration: 5
Cooldown 18 Mana 100

Notes:

  • Does not directly amplify damage as it is dealt, but rather saves all damage values and deals 30% of it 5 seconds after cast.
  • The damage is applied exactly 5 seconds after cast, but only if the target still has the debuff on.
    • This means when the debuff gets dispeled prematurely, no damage is dealt.
    • It also means when the debuff gets prolonged (by e.g re-casting it), the damage is not further delayed.
      This in return means that successive casts on the same target only refresh the silence duration.
      In order to amplify damage again, the already existing debuff must disappear first.
  • Only considers magical, physical and pure damage (after all reductions). Other sources of health loss are ignored.

Tips[edit | edit source]

  • Orchid is great against Intelligence heroes as they are dependent on their abilities to deal damage, but it is also effective against heroes with escape abilities like Weaver or Anti Mage.
