Holy Persuasion icon.png
Affects
Enemy Units / Allies
Chen takes control of an enemy or neutral creep. If the persuaded creep's base health is naturally below the health minimum, its base health will be raised to the health minimum.

Can be cast on allies to teleport them to Chen. If cast on Chen, all units controlled by Chen will be teleported to him. Taking damage will dispel the buff.

Although they may not be knights, Chen incorporates beasts into the Fold in the same way he himself was converted.

Notes:

  • Targeting enemies:
    • Applies a basic dispel on the target which removes buffs and debuffs.
    • When persuading a new creep while already having the maximum amount, the oldest persuaded creep (including ancient creeps) dies.
    • When persuading an ancient creep while already having the maximum amount of them, the oldest persuaded ancient creep dies.
    • The death is not credited to anyone so that no one gets experience from it.
    • Can persuade any creep below the given max level, except for Roshan icon.png Roshan, siege creeps and creep-heroes.
    • When the unit's maximum health is below the minimum health threshold, its maximum and current health are increased by the difference.
    • This current health increase does not count as a heal. The unit has its health set to a value.
    • The health of creeps that are currently persuaded does not increase further upon leveling up Holy Persuasion or upon choosing the minimum health upgrading talent.
    • Fully restores the creep's mana.
    • Aghanim's Scepter icon.png Aghanim's Scepter upgraded Holy Persuasion allows 1 ancient creep to be persuaded per level of Hand of God.
      Ancient creeps are included in the maximum allowed units, so it does not allow Chen to have more creeps persuaded.
      Can be cast on ancient creeps without having Hand of God leveled for no result, wasting the mana and cooldown.
      The talent does not increase the amount of ancient creeps Chen can persuade.
  • Targeting allies:
    • Has a global cast range when targeting allies.
    • Disjoints projectiles upon teleporting.
    • Can only teleport allied units controlled by players. Cannot teleport lane creeps.
    • Cannot target invulnerable or hidden allies, but can teleport them if they turned invulnerable or hidden after cast.
    • The teleport locations are based on Chen's position upon teleporting, with the ally appearing 120 range to his north, east, south, or west.
    • The very first ally teleported to Chen teleports randomly north, south, east, or west, and following allies continue counterclockwise.
    • If Chen is dead as the buff expires, the teleport does not happen.
    • Damage greater than 0 (before reductions) from any player (including allies, excluding self) or Roshan icon.png Roshan dispels the effect.
    • Gives the target a stop command after teleporting it, canceling channeling spells and stopping queued orders.
    • The disable help function prevents an allied Chen from casting this spell on you.
    • When targeting self, all units under the caster's control (excluding wards and illusions) get teleport to the caster.
      Unlike directly targeting an ally to teleport, self-casting does target invulnerable and hidden units.
