Abilities[edit | edit source]

Chop Tree or Ward
Not blocked by Spell Immunity.
Ability Affects
Target Unit Trees / Enemies
Destroy a target tree or ward. Chop cast range is increased when targetting wards.
Cast Range (tree): 350
Cast Range (ward): 450
Cooldown 4

Notes:

  • Can also target all of an enemy Techies icon.png Techies' mines, using the same cast range as for wards.

Quell
Not a Unique Attack Modifier. Can be used by illusions. Not blocked by Spell Immunity.
Ability Affects
Passive Enemy Units
Increases attack damage against non-hero units, based on whether the equipped hero is ranged or melee. Does not provide bonus damage against Roshan.
Attack Damage Bonus (melee): 40%
Attack Damage Bonus (ranged): 15%
Can be used by illusions. The bonus damage is also affected by the illusions' attack damage penalty.

Notes:

  • Only increases base damage and that provided by attributes. Attack damage bonuses are not increased.
  • 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.
  • 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.
