  • The bonus damage does not apply when attacking friendly units (i.e. denying own creeps).
  • When the owner's attack type changes to ranged or melee, the attack damage bonus adapts immediately.
  • Quell fully works with crits, cleaves and lifesteal. When having cleave, attacking a creep cleaves the increased damage in the area.
    • However, if the unit has Tidebringer icon.png Tidebringer​, the attack which procs it is not increased by Quell.
    • When Tidebringer icon.png Tidebringer​ is on cooldown, the attack will be increased by Quell.
  • Elder Dragon Form icon.png Elder Dragon Form​'s splash also splashes the increased damage when attacking a creep.
  • The damage Moon Glaive icon.png Moon Glaive​ bounces are not increased, since they are based on the attacker's attack damage value.
  • Psi Blades icon.png Psi Blades​ will spread the increased damage when attacking a creep.

Tips[edit | edit source]

  • The 24 bonus damage to creep on melee heroes is good for last hitting and jungling.
    • The bonus damage stacks with iron talon so you can get 48 bonus damage for 700 gold to secure your last hits and farm the jungle faster.
    • You can lifesteal from the bonus damage.
