Spell Shield
Counterspell icon.png
Ability
Passive
Affects
Self
Increases Anti-Mage's resistance to magic damage.
Magic Resistance Bonus: 20%/30%/40%/50% (Talent 45%/55%/65%/75%)
Cooldown: 0 (With Aghanim's: 12)
Aghanim's upgrade: Causes Spell Shield to passively block and reflect a targeted spell once every 12 seconds.
Years of meditation and obsession with revenge have hardened Anti-Mage's skin against mystical opponents.

Notes:

  • Increases Anti-Mage's total base magic resistance to 40%/47.5%/55%/62.5% (Talent 58.75%/66.25%/73.75%/81.25%).
  • Aghanim's Scepter icon.png Aghanim's Scepter adds a Spell Block and Spell Reflection to Spell Shield.
    • Only goes on cooldown upon successfully blocking, but not when just reflecting a spell (e.g. Toss).
    • If Anti-Mage has the Linken's Sphere icon.png Linken's Sphere item or buff, they only block spells while Spell Shield is on cooldown.
    • If Anti-Mage has the Echo Shell buff from Lotus Orb icon.png Lotus Orb, Echo Shell only reflects spells while Spell Shield is on cooldown.
    • The Spell Shield does not reflect spells which come from Echo Shell (reflected spells are not reflected again).
    • The effect uses a regular cooldown, and is therefore affected by all cooldown manipulating effects.
    • Unlike Lotus Orb, does not reflect Phantom Strike and Blink Strike. They do get blocked still.

Each attack dissipates mana based on spell level.
Mana Burned per Hit: 25/50/75
Burned Mana as Damage: 100%

Notes:

  • 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 and cleave, but it is not considered by crit.
    • It is also not affected by percentage-based attack damage bonuses or reductions, but can be reduced with flat reductions.
  • Effectively increases a Anti-Mage's attack damage by 25/50/75 against units which have enough mana to burn.
  • Applies the mana loss first, and then the damage.
  • Does not work against allied units when attacking them.
  • Does not stack with Diffusal Blade's Manabreak.
