Radius: 700
Damage per Second (Hero): 60
Damage per Second (Illusion): 35
Miss Chance: 17%
Cooldown symbol.png 0
Does not pierce spell immunity. Blinds and attempts to damage if debuff was placed before spell immunity.
Can be used by illusions. Illusions deal less damage with Burn around them.
The main hero's Burn always takes priority, if an enemy is within range of both the hero and its illusion.
Modifiers
Debuff Item Radiance Debuff: Undispellable.

Notes:

  • Does not interrupt the user's channeling spells upon toggling.
  • The burn damage and blind effect are provided by an aura. Its debuff lingers for 0.5 seconds.
    • This means during this linger period, enemies can still be damaged by up to one tick.
  • Deals damage in 1 second intervals, starting 1 second after the debuff is placed.
  • The burn damage and blind effect of multiple Radiance do not stack. Only the first applied debuff applies the effects.


Recommended heroes[edit]

  • Radiance is most commonly purchased on Heroes who rely on long-lived illusions to farm and fight, either from an innate spell or in combination with Manta Style icon.png Manta Style.
  • Naga Siren minimap icon.png Naga Siren can farm extremely quickly with Radiance, farming in four or more different places at once.
  • Spectre minimap icon.png Spectre commonly gets Radiance to amplify her slow baseline farming, as it also increases the power of her ultimate's illusions.
  • Radiance aura is still active if the owner is hidden, making it situationally viable on heroes who use this mechanic.
  • Brewmaster minimap icon.png Brewmaster will have his auras follow and effect his brewlings, making an aura based build viable.
  • Lifestealer minimap icon.png Lifestealer can hide inside other units while continuing to burn nearby enemies.
  • While it can be difficult to farm for Phoenix minimap icon.png Phoenix, the blinding effect of burn makes it harder for enemies to destroy the egg, regardless of who is actually carrying the item.
  • Durable heroes who depend on drawn out fights can do a large amount of damage with Radiance simply by being able to survive near the enemy team for a protracted amount of time.

Tips[edit]

  • Radiance has one of the hardest build-ups in the game, as rushing the 3800 gold for a Sacred Relic icon.png Sacred Relic forces you to save up a lot of gold at once rather than ramping up your strength with cheaper items. Early deaths can be especially problematic for a Radiance builder, and may force the player to give up on Radiance and build a different item. If you are building a Radiance inform your team.
  • It is recommended to avoid being visible on the map and avoid uncertain fights when close to the purchase of the Sacred Relic.
  • With a manta style or illusion ability you can farm multiple lanes and wood camps at once and push the lanes safely.
  • Radiance's constant area damage is great at disabling enemy Blink Dagger icon.png Blink Daggers, preventing enemies from escaping with it. However, they can still initiate with it, due to the blink's range being higher than the Burn Aura's reach.
  • The damage from Radiance procs the Spell Lifesteal provided by Octarine Core icon.png Octarine Core. Illusions themselves can recover health while dealing damage to enemy creeps and heroes, allowing them to survive longer. Only the first illusion or hero that burns an enemy lifesteals from it.
  • It is extremely discouraged to purchase more than one Radiance on the same team, as the auras do not stack.
