Ability
Target Unit
Affects
Allies
Teleports an allied unit back to the base. Creeps are teleported instantly, while heroes have a delay before teleporting. If cast on Chen, all units controlled by Chen through Holy Persuasion will be teleported to him after a delay.
Cast Animation: 0.3+0.77
Cast Range: 600
Teleport Delay: 6/5/4/3
Cooldown symbol.png 24
Mana symbol.png 200
Modifiers
Buff Test of Faith Teleport: Dispellable with any dispel.

Notes:

  • Leveling Test of Faith (Teleport) automatically leveled Test of Faith icon.png Test of Faith as well.
  • Disjoints projectiles for the target upon teleporting it.
  • Allied non-hero units and lane creeps can be teleported as well, but like allied heroes, they are not teleported instantly.
  • When targeting own non-hero units, they are teleported instantly, meaning own illusions are teleported after the delay.
  • When targeting self, all units under Chen's control (excluding illusions, couriers, and wards) are teleported towards Chen after the delay, not only creeps from Holy Persuasion.
    • The teleported units' destination is a small radius around Chen, so that Chen does not get stuck between them.
  • Cannot target invulnerable or hidden units, but can teleport them if they turned invulnerable or hidden after cast.
  • Despite the description, targeting Chen teleports all non-hero units under his control to him, and not only units taken over with Holy Perusasion.
    • This includes any summons he has, or any other dominated creeps. However, it excludes illusions.
    • Unlike directly targeting a unit to teleport, self-casting does target units which are invulnerable or hidden as well.
    • The teleport locations are based on Chen's position upon cast, with the creeps appearing 120 range to his north, east, south, or west.
    • These are the only four spots used to teleport. When having more than 4 units, they get moved to the next pathable area closest to the spots.
    • The spots are not chosen randomly, they follow a fixed pattern. The very first creep teleported to Chen always teleports to his north, and following creeps continue counterclockwise.
