An enforcer's honor can be a prickly thing. So can his quills.


  • This ability got reworked into the current Quill Spray icon.png Quill Spray in the 6.33 gameplay patch.
  • The projectiles travel at a speed of 1200 and can be disjointed.
  • Releases up to 100 near-damage quills and up to 100 far-damage quills.
  • Randomly chooses a target for each quill within the radius. Units within 200 radius may be chosen for a near-damage quill or a far-damage quill, while units outside this radius may only be chosen for a far-damage quill.
  • Damage received is based on distance when the quill is launched, not when it lands.
  • Bristleback can act freely while spraying the quills.
  • Launches one near-damage quill and one far-damage quill per 0.06 second interval, resulting in up to 200 damage instances.
  • Each quill places a debuff on its target for 0.2 seconds. This debuff prevents more quills of the same kind to be launched towards that unit for its duration, reducing its effectiveness against a single close target.
  • Can deal a total of 500/1000/1500/2000 damage (before reductions), assuming all quills hit.
  • Can deal up to 90/180/270/360 damage to a single target.

'Temper, temper,' his mum always chided. But in a fight, a temper can come in handy.
