Notes:

  • Successive attacks with Ballista do not stack the debuff, but refresh the duration and knockback instead.
  • The attacks first apply the debuff, then the knockback damage, then their own damage.
  • The target is not disabled during the knockback, so they still can cast spells or items, attack and turn during the push.
    • This means it does not cancel channeling spells of the target.


Tips[edit]

  • Ballista is best shared with ranged carry heroes who rely on physical damage:
    • Sharing a Ballista to an allied Sniper minimap icon.png Sniper helps boost his already high damage and attack range. The passive deals bonus damage and knockback to prevent the enemies from coming near him.
    • Sharing it to an allied Windranger minimap icon.png Windranger allows her to continuously knockback the enemies during Focus Fire.
    • Sharing it with a Level 25 Medusa minimap icon.png Medusa with the Split shoot talent will apply it to every hero Medusa is attacking.
