Target Unit Enemies
Turns a target unit into a harmless critter for 3.5 seconds. Instantly destroys illusions.
Cast Range: 800
Duration: 3.5

Notes:

  • Because hex changes base move speed and doesn't 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 +10% from Yasha icon.png Yasha has 154 move speed
    • a hexed unit with +50 from Boots of Speed icon.png Boots of Speed has 190 move speed
    • a hexed unit with both Boots of Speed icon.png Boots of Speed and Yasha icon.png Yasha has 209 move speed
  • Hex instantly destroys illusions, but not summoned units.
  • Scythe of Vyse hex transforms the target into a Play 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.
