  • Abyssal Blade's bash does not stack with the bash of Skull Basher icon.png Skull Basher and other Abyssal Blades.
  • When obtaining multiple items with the bash ability, only the one that has been continuously the longest in the inventory works.
  • The proccing attack first applies the debuff, then its own damage.
  • The bonus damage is dealt in one instance together with the attack damage, and counts as attack damage as well.
    • It can be lifestealed off of, but it is not considered by crit or cleave.
    • It is also not affected by percentage-based attack damage bonuses or reductions, but can be reduced with flat reductions.
  • Adds an average of 25 damage to every attack for melee heroes, and 10 damage for ranged heroes.
  • Does not work against wards and buildings, but works against allied units.

Recommended heroes[edit]

Heroes whose default item build includes Abyssal Blade as a situational item:


  • Use Overwhelm to interrupt the enemy heroes' channeling such as Town Portal Scroll icon.png Town Portal Scroll or any channeled abilities like Freezing Field.
  • Although sometimes optional, it is best to buy items that grant attack speed which procs Bash more.
  • Due to the short cast range of Overwhelm, it is best to have a gap closer, like blink abilities to position oneself to cast it, or invisibility to sneak up upon targets.
  • Since the Bash pierces spell immunity, it is best used when facing heroes with spell immunity (such as Juggernaut minimap icon.png Juggernaut or Lifestealer minimap icon.png Lifestealer). The active ability also has a guaranteed 2-seconds stun that also pierces spell immunity.
  • Be careful when facing heroes with skills/items that applies strong dispel such as Aphotic Shield or Dark Pact, it is best to use abilities with silence or mute to compensate this.
