Arctic Burn
Unknown icon.png
Ability Affects
No Target Self
Imbues you with a deathly chill, causing you to gain bonus attack range and flying movement for 6 seconds. Your attacks place an arctic burn on enemies that slows them and burns a portion of their health away.
Duration: 6
Range: 700/800/900/1000
Slow: 25/30/35/40% for 5 seconds
Cooldown 50/40/30/20 Mana 120/110/100/90


  • Arctic Burn removes 6% of the target's current hp per second. Pure damage is dealt.
  • Slow and HP burn can be applied to each target at most once per cast.
  • Burn does not work against Roshan.
  • Arctic Burn gives Winter Wyvern flying movement but not flying vision for its duration.
  • If nothing else damages the target for the duration, it will burn about 26.6% of the target's current health.
  • Improves attack projectile speed to 1200, attack point to 0.1 seconds and acquisition range to 1000 when activated.
  • Passively gives 400 night sight range.

Splinter Blast
Unknown icon.png
Ability Affects Damage
Target Unit Enemies Magical
Fires a passive shard of ice at an enemy unit. Upon impact, it gains new life and splits off into active shards that deal heavy damage and slow to all other enemy units. Initial target is unaffected.
Range: 1200
Split AoE: 500
Secondary Target Damage: 100/180/260/340
Cooldown 7 Mana 120/130/140/150


  • Projectile moves at 500 movespeed or takes 1.35 seconds to arrive at the destination, whichever is faster. This speed is dynamically updated. (meaning 1.35 seconds is max time to arrive no matter how target moved)
  • Slows for 25% for 4 seconds.
  • Affects invisible units in AoE.

Cold Embrace
Unknown icon.png
Ability Affects
Target Unit Allied Heroes
Reduces an allied hero's body temperature by encasing him in ice, sending him into a deep sleep and regenerating a percentage of max HP for 4 seconds, in addition to blocking all physical damage for its duration.
Duration: 4
HP Regeneration: 20 + 3/4/5/6% of Max HP per second
Cast Range: 1000
Cooldown 17/16/15/14 Mana 75


  • The target friendly hero is disabled for the duration of the buff.
  • While the target is invulnerable to physical attacks, it can still be targeted and will be affected by Magic/Pure damage and other buff/debuffs.
  • Heal a total of 80 + 12/16/20/24% of Max HP over the duration.

Winter's Curse
Unknown icon.png
Ability Affects
Target Unit Enemies
Winter Wyvern strikes the battlefield with a maddening chill, cursing a targeted enemy unit and freezing it in place. All of the target's nearby allied units will go into an uncontrollable frenzy, attacking the frozen ally for a short duration.
Duration: 2.5/2.75/3
Radius: 350
Cast Range: 800
Cooldown 90/80/70 Mana 250


  • You get credit for kills done this way, unless target is affected by Necrophos' Reaper's Scythe.
  • Disables the primary target even if it is magic immune, but does not affect target's magic immune allies.
  • Enemies that move into Winter's Curse's AoE during its duration will also be affected.
