Town Portal Scroll (75)

The Town Portal Scroll is an item purchasable at the Main Shop, under Consumables, and at the Side Lane Shop.

Additional information[edit | edit source]

Reading the scroll allows the casting hero to teleport to a friendly building. The Town Portal Scroll is often used as a means of escape against heroes who have no way to cancel the channeling.

Town Portal Scroll is completely shareable.

  • Double clicking the item while being at least 1500 range away from the team's fountain, automatically targets the fountain.
  • If multiple heroes teleport to the same location within the check duration, the channeling time increases for each successive hero.
    • The first hero has to channel for 3 seconds, the second for 5. All following have to channel 0.5 seconds longer than the previous one.
    • Only teleports within 1100 radius of towers are counted. Teleports outside of tower range do not increase the channel time.
    • Only teleports from other Town Portal Scrolls are counted. Other sources of teleport (e.g. Boots of Travel) are ignored.
  • When targeting far away from buildings, it teleports to the closest building, 575 range away from it.
  • During the channeling, the teleport destination is marked with a visual effect in the same color as the player and a sound is played.
  • Both are visible and audible to everyone. The visual effect is also visible on teleporting invisible enemies.
  • Also marks the point on the mini-map for allies. The mark is in the player's color and lasts as long as the channeling does.
  • Provides 200 range flying vision at the destination point while channeling. The vision lingers for 1 second.
  • The teleport is not cancelled when the target building is destroyed during the channeling.
  • Upon teleport, trees within 200 radius are destroyed.

    Whenever a hero teleports to an area, it causes any other teleports to that area to be delayed based on the number of heroes that teleported to that area.
    The first teleport (3 second channel time) causes the next teleport to take 2 seconds longer (5 seconds channel time).
    Every other following teleport causes the next teleport to take 1 second longer (6/7/8/etc seconds channel time).
    Checks for teleports within the last 25 seconds. The checked area has a radius of 1100 around every building.
    Teleports towards the fountain always take 3 seconds, no matter how many targeted that area.
