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 as soon as the debuff expires. Dispelling the debuff, however, skips the damage entirely.
    • Recasting Soul Burn on the same target refreshes the duration.
    • Doing this delays the damage further, and gives more time to deal damage to the target.
    • The damage is credited to the last caster of Soul Burn on the target.

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.

Update history[edit | edit source]

March 24, 2016 Patch

  • Fixed Orchid buff not remembering the damage properly when another Orchid buff instance is added to the same unit.
