  • Because hex changes base move speed and does not actually apply a slow, all speed effects are calculated using the 140 base speed.
  • For example:
    • a hexed unit with no speed bonuses has 140 move speed
    • a hexed unit with +8% from Yasha icon.png Yasha has 151.2 move speed
    • a hexed unit with +45 from Boots of Speed icon.png Boots of Speed has 185 move speed
    • a hexed unit with both Boots of Speed icon.png Boots of Speed and Yasha icon.png Yasha has 199.8 move speed
  • Scythe of Vyse hex transforms the target into a pig.

Trivia[edit | edit source]

  • In the original DotA, this item was known as Guinsoo's Scythe of Vyse, as a tribute to one of the developers of DotA: Allstars, who went on to co-create League of Legends.
  • This item is known by many players (and referred to by several in-game Heroes) as "Sheepstick" due to turning targeted heroes into sheep in DotA. However, in Dota 2, targeted units turn into a pig.
    • Many heroes who have responses for buying Scythe of Vyse also call it "Sheepstick".
  • The item's name may be a reference to the Sega RPG Skies of Arcadia. The main character, Vyse, has been depicted weilding a scythe in early concept art.
