Notes:

  • Does not function with other Skull Bashers.
  • Skull Basher does not use Pseudo-random distribution, it has exactly 10%(ranged) or 25%(melee) chance to proc per attack (Unless on cooldown).
  • Stun is physical, on both melee and ranged attackers.

Additional Information[edit]

Skull Basher cannot be purchased by Slardar, Faceless Void, Troll Warlord, or Spirit Breaker. This also prevents them from purchasing Abyssal Blade, as Skull Basher is required to build it.

Trivia[edit]

  • In the original DotA, this item was called "Cranium Basher", a reference to a unique item in Diablo 2.
