  • Interrupts the user's channeling spells upon cast.
  • Only refreshes items in the user's inventory. Items in the stash, in other units' inventories or dropped items are unaffected.
  • Only refreshes items owned by the user. Allied items in the inventory are not refreshed.
  • Refreshes all spells owned by the user. This includes hidden or inactive spells (e.g. invoked spells or Battle Cry icon.png Battle Cry).
    • This means that it does not refresh all spells for Rubick minimap icon.png Rubick. Stolen spells are only refreshed when he owns them upon refreshing.
  • Visually resets the cooldown of Tranquil Boots (Active) icon.png Tranquil Boots, but does not skip the broken state.
  • Since items of same kind always share cooldown, it is not possible to refresh a Refresher Orb's cooldown with another Refresher Orb.

  • Using Refresher Orb allows some skills to have two instances running simultaneously; for example, Eye of the Storm icon.png Eye of the Storm, Chaotic Offering icon.png Chaotic Offering.
    • Note though that some spells are specifically coded to not be able to run multiple instances at the same time (e.g. Exorcism icon.png Exorcism). Before building Refresher Orb, be sure that the ability you aim to use it with supports multiple instances at the same time or is worth having its duration doubled.
