Additional information[edit]


Soul Rend
Target Unit
Silences a target for 5 seconds. At the end of the silence, an additional 30% of all damage taken during the silence will be dealt to the target as magic damage.

All attacks on the silenced target will have True Strike and 100% chance to crit for 40% more damage.
Cast Range: 900
Damage Amplification: 30%
Critical Proc Chance: 100%
Critical Damage: 140%
Duration: 5
Cooldown symbol.png 18
Mana symbol.png 100
Does not pierce spell immunity. Effect persists and attempts to deal damage when expiring while spell immune if debuff was placed before spell immunity and when not dispelled.
Can be used by illusions. Red critical numbers are before illusion and armor reduction.
Debuff Bloodthorn Debuff: Dispellable with any dispel.


  • Does not directly amplify damage as it is dealt, but rather saves all damage values and deals 30% of it 5 seconds after cast.
  • The damage is applied as soon as the debuff expires. Dispelling the debuff, however, skips the damage entirely.
    • Recasting Soul Rend on the same target refreshes the duration.
    • Doing this delays the damage further, and gives more time to deal damage to the target.
    • The damage is credited to the last caster of Soul Rend on the target.
  • Applies Accuracy on the target, causing all attacks done against it to not miss to evasion or blind effects.
  • The critical strike is only applied to attacks launched on a debuffed enemy. Previously launched attack projectiles are unaffected.
    • In reverse, this also means that projectiles launched during the debuff still crit even when landing after it already expired.
  • Together with the passive Critical Strike, increases attack damage against debuffed targets by an average of 47%.

Critical Strike
Can be used by illusions. Pierces spell immunity.
Grants a 20% chance for attacks to inflict 75% more damage.
Proc Chance: 20%
Critical Damage: 175%
Can be used by illusions. Red critical numbers are before illusion and armor reduction.


  • Increases attack damage by an average of 15%.
  • The proc chances of multiple crit sources stack.
    • If two sources of critical strike proc at the same time, the higher multiplier has priority.


  • Prior to the July 14, 2017 Patch, Bloodthorn's active ability, Soul Rend, did not have an official name. The name was taken from the Dota 2 Wiki and officially implemented into Dota 2.
