 Additional Information
Though it can't be used for daring escapes or to gain the upper hand in the middle of combat, Smoke of Deceit plays a cunning role against a well-warded team. The added mobility makes it easy to set up surprise attacks or to slip behind enemies without being spotted. However, if a hero hidden with Smoke of Deceit comes too close to an enemy hero or building, the effect ends, meaning you should keep your distance. Smoke of Deceit is especially useful to get to Roshan undetected as many players ward the surrounding area.
Smoke of Deceit is limited to a stock of 3 in the store. The stock takes 12 minutes to replenish.
Stacks with itself in inventory.
Can be used by a Courier.
