Abilities[edit | edit source]

Arctic Blast
Ability Affects Damage
No Target Enemies Magical
Emits a freezing wave that deals 200 magical damage to enemies and slows their movement by 40% for 4 seconds.
Radius: 900
Damage: 200
Move Speed Slow: 40%
Slow Duration: 4
Cooldown 30 Mana 100

Notes:

  • Does not interrupt the caster's channeling spells upon cast.
  • The blast spreads at a speed of 350 and takes 2.57 seconds to reach maximum range and dissipate.
  • The area of effect is centered around the owner, so when moving or blinking, the radius moves along.
  • The blast is not a ring. It affects every enemy within the blast's expanding area of effect.
    • This means that unlike with Ravage icon.png Ravage, it is not possible to avoid the effect by blinking "over" the edge towards the caster.
  • Provides 800 radius flying vision, following the caster and leaving a trail of vision which lasts for 2 seconds.


Freezing Aura
Can be used by illusions. Cannot be dispelled. Not blocked by Spell Immunity.
Ability Affects
Aura Enemies
Reduces the attack speed of all enemies in a 900 radius.
Radius: 900

Notes:

  • Freezing Auras from multiple Shiva's Guards do not stack.
  • The aura's debuff lingers for 0.5 seconds.
  • The status debuff icon only shows up when the affected unit has vision over the Shiva's holder.
  • Affects the attack speed of enemy illusions.
