A Way With Worgs[edit]

The first round of Dark Moon consists of Worgs and Alpha Worgs. This round is split up into 2 phases:

  • Initially, 3 packs of 12 Worgs spawn randomly at the spawn locations. They spawn in 8 second intervals, starting immediately as the round begins. They spawn a total of 4 times, resulting in 144 Worgs.
  • In the second phase, which begins 45 seconds after the round began, which is 21 seconds after the previous phase's last wave spawned, 3 packs of 7 Worgs and 2 Alpha Worgs spawn. These spawn in 5 second intervals, starting immediately as this phase begins. These spawn a total of 6 times, resulting in 126 Worgs and 36 Alpha Worgs
  • Altogether, this round spawns 270 Worgs and 36 Alpha Worgs, 306 units in total.

The Worgs have a passive Critical Strike. The Alpha Worgs have the same Critical Strike, and also have Packleader's Aura, an attack damage boosting aura.

Don't Count Your Chickens[edit]

The second round of Dark Moon consists of Tamed Wildwings and Acolytes of Dezun. Every 10 seconds, starting immediately as the round begins, 3 groups of 5 Tamed Wildwings and 1 Acolyte of Dezun spawn randomly at the spawn locations. This means every 10 seconds, 15 Tamed Wildwings and 3 Acolytes of Dezun spawn. The waves spawn 6 times, resulting in a total of 180 Wildwings and 36 Acolytes of Dezun, 216 units in total.

The Tamed Wildwings do not have any abilities, but come in greater numbers. The Acolytes of Dezun have a slightly modified version Shadow Wave, which they use whenever 2 allied units are at low health. They directly target the wounded ally, so quickly killing that target cancels the cast, delaying it further.

  • Shadow Wave has no bounce delay, so all targets are healed at the same time.
  • Regardless of the target, the Acolyte of Dezun is always healed without counting towards the number of bounces, effectively healing 4 units.
  • Can heal up to 400 health when all bounces hit.
  • The damage radius is centered around each healed unit. An enemy unit can get damaged by all healed units per cast.


Nyx Nyx Nyx[edit]

The third round of Dark Moon consists of Hellbears and Zealot Scarabs. Every 8 seconds, starting immediately as the round begins, 3 groups of 8 Hellbears and 1 Zealot Scarab spawn randomly at the spawn locations. This means every 8 seconds, 24 Hellbears and 3 Zealot Scarabs spawn. The waves spawn 6 times, resulting in a total of 144 Hellbears and 18 Zealot Scarabs, 162 units in total.

The Hellbears have no abilities, but deal decent damage with their attacks this early on. The Zealot Scarabs deal twice as much damage as the Hellbears and also have a slightly modified version of Impale, which they only cast when 2 or more enemies are within its range. They always choose the closer target.

It's Morphlin' Time[edit]

The fourth round of Dark Moon consists of Lesser Elementals and Greater Elementals. Every 10 seconds, starting immediately as the round begins, 3 groups of 7 Lesser Elementals and 1 Greater Elemental spawn randomly at the spawn locations. This means every 10 seconds, 21 Lesser Elementals and 3 Greater Elementals spawn. The waves spawn 7 times, resulting in a total of 147 Lesser Elementals and 21 Greater Elementals, 294 units in total.

The Lesser Elementals have no abilities, but have a short-ranged quick attack. The Greater Elementals deal twice as much damage as the Lesser Elementals and also have a slightly modified version of Waveform, which they only cast when 2 or more enemies are within their range.

Party Fowl[edit]

The fifth round of Dark Moon is a bonus round. It consists of a single Rooster, which runs around the map at high speed. It cannot be killed, but damaging it makes it drop gold bags. The rooster is 100% immune to disables and is hasted, so it cannot be slowed.

The Rooster can drop a total of 2000 gold. It runs around the map for up to 60 seconds, or until reaching the gold drop limit. At this point, the rooster teleports out of the map using its Boots of Travel. While channeling it, it is invulnerable.

From My Black Grimoire[edit]

The sixth round of Dark Moon consists of Enthralled Golems and Demon Charmers. Every 16 seconds, starting immediately as the round begins, 2 groups of 6 Enthralled Golems and 2 Demon Charmers spawn randomly at the spawn locations. This means every 16 seconds, 12 Enthralled Golems and 4 Demon Charmers spawn. The waves spawn 7 times, resulting in a total of 84 Enthralled Golems and 28 Demon Charmers, 112 units in total.

The Enthralled Golems are very weak on their own, having very low health and damage. However, the accompanying Demon Charmers have Health Aura, which greatly boosts the Enthralled Golem's health and doubles their attack damage and model size. The Demon Charmers also have a slightly modified version of Upheaval and Shadow Word. They cast Upheaval only when 2 or more enemies stand close enough to each other while within cast range. The Demon Charmers are very selfish, and cast Shadow Word on no one but themselves.

  • The strength of the slow is based on the channel duration, not on how long a unit stands in the affected area.
  • The slow percentage increases by 3% in 0.5 second intervals, starting 0.5 seconds after spell cast.
  • Can slow units for up to 45% when channeled for the full duration. The limited channel time prevents reaching the slow cap.

  • Increases the golem's model size by 100%, doubling their size.

We're Falling Apart Without You[edit]

The seventh round of Dark Moon consists of Enraged Devourers and of Berserk Zombies, which come back as Berserk Zombie Torsos when killed once. Every 20 seconds, starting immediately as the round begins, 3 groups of 10 Berserk Zombies and 3 groups of 11 Berserk Zombies spawn randomly at the spawn locations. This means every 20 seconds, 63 Berserk Zombies spawn. The waves spawn 4 times. 20 seconds after the 4th wave, 4 lone Berserk Zombies spawn together as a last 5th zombie wave, resulting in a total of 256 Berserk Zombies. 30 seconds after round begin, 3 Enraged Devourers start spawning each at a random spawn location (i.e. not as a single group) in 20 second intervals. This means they spawn 10 seconds before the next zombie wave, and never together with them. The Enraged Devourers spawn 7 times, resulting in 21 Enraged Devourers. This brings the total unit spawn count of this round up to 273.

The Berserk Zombies are slow units which effectively have to be killed twice. They do not die easily, and continue to attack their enemies as torsos after losing their legs. As torsos, the Zombies somehow deal more damage and gain high magic resistance, but have much lower health. Due to this, this round effectively contains 525 enemies, as the torsos count as separate units and each Berserk Zombie comes back as a torso. The Enraged Devourers are fast units which Feast on their enemies upon attacking, regaining lots of health per attack, and can fall into a Rage, becoming temporarily spell immune and attacking faster.

A Rising Tide Lifts All Boats[edit]

The eighth round of Dark Moon consists of Recruits, Captains, Fleet Admirals, Krill-eaters, Shark-eaters and Whale-eaters. Every 10 seconds, starting immediately as the round begins, 2 groups of 4 Recruits, 4 Krill-eaters, 1 Captain and 1 Shark-eater spawn randomly at the spawn locations. This means every 10 seconds, 8 Recruits, 8 Krill-eaters, 2 Captains and 2 Shark-eaters spawn. The waves spawn 6 times, resulting in a total of 48 Recruits, 48 Krill-eaters, 12 Captains and 12 Shark-eaters. 20 seconds after round begin and then every 12 seconds, a Fleet Admiral and a Whale-eater spawn randomly at the spawn locations. They spawn a total of 3 times each.

The Recruits and Krill-eaters are small units without any specialties. The Captains and Shark-eaters are bigger and stronger and have a very slightly modified version of Torrent and Aghanim's Scepter icon.png Aghanim's Scepter upgraded Gush respectively. The Fleet Admirals are even bigger and stronger, hitting harder and being tankier. On top of the same Torrent as the Captains, the Admirals also have an unmodified X Marks the Spot and Ghostship. But the strongest units of the wave by far are the Whale-eaters. Not only are they hitting very hard and are extremely tanky, they also have very disruptive abilities with the same Gush as the Shark-eaters and a modified version of Ravage and cannot be disabled properly, because they also have a modified version of Kraken Shell.

As for spell usage, the Torrents and Gushes are used on single targets. They never try to hit multiple enemies at the same time with them. X Marks the Spot is used on the closest enemy whenever possible, but they never use the sub-spell. This means the admirals do not try to do the typical X Mark Torrent combo. Ghostship is only cast when 2 enemies are within its cast range, but it does not care whether they stand together or not, so even if 2 heroes are within range but far away from each other, it still casts the boat on one of them. Ravage is cast when at least 3 enemies are within its radius.

    • It also means that it is possible to evade the effects by blinking inside the expanding ring shortly after cast.

Numerous Launches Detected[edit]

The ninth round of Dark Moon consists of Creeps, Trappers and Chaotic Hurlers. Every 15 seconds, starting immediately as the round begins, 10 Creeps, 10 Trappers and 2 Chaotic Hurlers spawn at a random spawn location. A total of 7 waves spawn, resulting in 70 Creeps and Trappers and 14 Chaotic Hurlers.

The Creeps do not have any abilities. The Trappers have Earthbind, rooting enemies in a radius for a short duration. The Chaotic Hurlers are able to Attack the ground, dealing heavy splash damage and knocking enemies back. They never normally attack heroes. Their attack has a very high downtime of 100 seconds, so they choose to only attack the Towers and the Temple. They are also able to Disembark additional troops.

  • Enemies who come within 100 range of the projectile get stunned and damaged (needs verification).
  • Upon reaching the target area, the projectile explodes, dealing massive area damage and knocking enemies back.
  • The knockback is not a set distance. It pushes every enemy so they are 400 range away from the center of the targeted area. So the minimum knockback distance is 150.
  • The knockback duration is always the same, so the speed varies between 600 (150 knockback distance) and 1600 (400 knockback distance).
  • Can push units over impassable terrain. Any tree a knocked back unit collides with gets destroyed.
  • Enemies are fully disabled during the knockback.
  • The projectile provides 300 range flying vision around it as it travels.

Flock-a-doodle-doo[edit]

The tenth round of Dark Moon is a bonus round. Every second, starting immediately as the round begins, 5 individual Baby Roshans (although they are small chickens, they are named Baby Roshan) spawn randomly at the spawn locations. The waves spawn 12 times, resulting in a total of 60 Baby Roshans.

Just like the Rooster from round five, these units randomly run accross the map at high speed, and are just as immune to disables and slows. They drop gold bags upon taking damage and cannot be killed. Baby Roshans last for 60 seconds each, so they do not disappear at the same time. Unlike the Rooster, these ones just die, instead of teleporting away. Each chicken can drop 100 gold bags, resulting in 6000 possible bags, which can potentialy result in a lot of gold. However, getting all bags from them is impossible due to how they are spread around the entire map and the gold bags lasting only for 15 seconds after dropping.

On The Hunt[edit]

The eleventh round of Dark Moon consists of Soulstealers, Hunters and entities known as The Abyss. Every 13 seconds, starting immediately as the round begins, 4 groups of 12 Soulstealers and 1 Hunter spawn randomly at the spawn locations. This means every 13 seconds, 48 Soulstealers and 4 Hunters spawn. The waves spawn 5 times, resulting in a total of 240 Soulstealers and 20 Hunters. Additionally, starting 10 seconds after round begin, and then every 8 seconds, entities known as "The Abyss" spawn, for a total of 6 times, resulting in a total unit count of 266.

The Soulstealers are strong, skill-less units with decent damage and fast movement speed. The Hunters have Blinding Gloom, a cone-shaped nuke which slows hit enemies and also greatly reduces their vision range. They also have unmodified Hunter in the Night. The Abyss entities are tanky, hard hitting units which have a slightly modified Black Hole.

Attack Of The Cat Ladies[edit]

The Twelfth round of Dark Moon consists of Tiny Moon Riders and Nightsilver Prowlers. Every 10 seconds, starting immediately as the round begins, 2 groups of 6 Tiny Moon Riders spawn randomly at the spawn locations. This means every 10 seconds, 12 Tiny Moon Riders spawn. The waves spawn 9 times, resulting in a total of 108 Tiny Moon Riders. Additionally, starting 6 seconds after round begin, and then every 7 seconds, 2 Nightsilver Prowlers spawn together at a random spawn location. The Prowlers spawn 13 times, resulting in a total of 26 Nightsilver Prowlers. In total this round spawns 134 units.

The Tiny Moon Riders have modified Moon Glaivess, causing their attacks to bounce. The Nightsilver Prowlers can throw modified Sacred Arrows, which deal a lot of damage and stun for a long time. The Prowlers also have global vision, revealing the entire map for them and the Moon Riders, making it impossible to juke them.

Empowers the Tiny Moon Rider's glaive, causing their attacks to bounce between enemy units. Deals less damage with each bounce.
Bounce Search Radius: 500
Number of Bounces: 2
Damage Reduction per Bounce: 35%

Notes:

  • The bouncing glaive travels at a speed of 900 (the same speed as the Moon Riders' attack projectile).
  • Moon Glaives only procs if an attack successfully hits a target. This means a missed or disjointed attack does not proc it.
  • When disjointed, the disjointing unit is not registered as hit, meaning the glaive can immediately bounce on it again if within range.
  • A disjointed bounce still counts as a bounce, so it reduces the amount of bounces left and the damage of the next bounce.
  • It does not matter how much damage the initial target takes, the bounces always deal damage based on the Moon Rider's average main damage.
    • This means that the armor of or other damage manipulating effects on the initial attack target do not influence the bounces' damage at all.
  • Can bounce back to the same units if it already hit all other nearby units. If no other units are nearby, the ability does nothing.
  • The bounces deal 65%/42% of the Tiny Moon Rider's original attack damage.

It's A Techies Convention[edit]

The fourteenth round of Dark Moon consists of Bombers and Hurtlers. Every 4 seconds, starting immediately as the round begins, 4 groups of 1 Bomber spawn randomly at the spawn locations, up to 16 times. 20 seconds after round begin, and then every 4 seconds 2 additional groups of 2 Bombers start spawning, up to 10 times. Also 20 seconds after round begin, and then every 12 seconds, 2 groups of 1 Hurtler start spawning, up to 8 times. 30 seconds after round begin, and then every 8 seconds, 2 additional groups of 2 Hurtlers start spawning, up to 8 times. In total, 104 Bombers and 48 Hurtlers spawn, resulting in 162 units in this round.

The Bombers are weak units on their own, but walk at full movement speed and plant very potent Land Mines, which deal massive damage and explode quickly. The Hurtlers are bigger units with twice as much damage as the Bombers, but still relatively low. Their goal is it to Blast Off into the heroes, attempting to kill them with a heavy AoE nuke which also damages the Hurtlers themselves. The sheer amount of Bombers and Hurtlers which spawn makes it very easy for them to quickly kill uncareful heroes, or even destroy towers with their attacks if left alone for too long, despite their weak regular attacks.

Who Threatens Our Concentration?[edit]

The fifteenth wave of Dark Moon is the last and the boss round. Upon round start, Scholar of Koryx spawns at a random spawn location. 10 seconds later, Mind of Tornarus spawns. 20 seconds after round starts, Agent of Gallaron. Once all 3 of them die, the Dark Magus is summoned at the map center.

Although all 3 of the maguses have all spells (except for Ghost Walk), they only use a set of spells based on Quas, Wex and Exort respectively. The final boss, the Dark Magus, also has them all and uses them all.

Although all of these spells have 8 levels, for simplicity's sake, only the last level is displayed here, since they are always on max level for the bosses.

Notes:

  • Modified values: None. This is the default Invoke.
  • This is an innate ability and does not need to be learned.
  • A button is located right above the ability icon. It opens a list which shows the required combination for every invoked ability.
  • Invoke interrupts Invoker's channeling spells upon cast.
  • The arrangement of element instances does not matter.
  • When already having two spells invoked, invoking a new spell replaces the older spell.
  • New invoked spells are always placed in the 4th ability slot.
    • The previously invoked spell is moved to the 5th slot in the process, while the previous spell in the 5th slot is lost.
  • When invoking a spell which is already invoked, Invoke neither costs mana, nor goes on cooldown.
    • If the re-invoked ability was in the 5th ability slot, it moves into the 4th, swapping position with the other invoked ability.
  • The Aghanim's Scepter icon.png Aghanim's Scepter upgrade does not improve the passive bonuses granted by Quas, Wex and Exort. It makes invoked spells consider them 1 level higher than what they are.
    • This means that it does not grant Invoker any of the abilities Quas, Wex and Exort when they are not learned yet.

Ability

Self / Enemies
The Dark Magus emits a powerful aura. The effects vary depending on his current health. When at 66% or higher health, the aura slows movement speed and attack speed of all enemies. When at 33% or higher health, the aura slows movement speed. When below 33%, the aura deals periodic damage and blinds enemies. Besides the aura, the Dark Magus also occasionally wreaks havoc on the entire map for 10 seconds, during which he is invulnerable and invisible. Just like the aura, the effects depend on his health. When at 66% or higher, it applies Cold Feet on all enemies. When at 33% or higher, tornadoes spawn randomly on the map, crossing it in lines. When below 33% health, Chaos Meteors and Sun Strikes are launched onto every enemy.

Notes:

  • The Dark Magus cannot and does not need to invoke this ability. It always has this in its 7th ability slot.
  • The phases are split up into Quas phase, Wex phase and Exort phase, in this order.
  • Quas phase:
    • The aura starts emitting, applying Crystal Nova's debuff on enemies, slowing their movement and attack speed.
    • Applies the Cold Feet debuff on all enemy heroes, working like Ancient Apparition minimap icon.png Ancient Apparition's Cold Feet.
    • The debuff is not applied on heroes which already have the debuff, or have its following freeze debuff.
    • Cold Snaps have a 50% chance to apply every second. If they do not get applied, 3 Forged Spirits spawn within 500 radius around the Magus.
  • Wex phase:
    • The aura switches from the Crystal Nova debuff to a custom debuff. This debuff only slows movement speed, and that by a lower value.
    • Tornadoes spawn within a 2500 radius around the Dark Magus for each enemy.
    • The tornadoes travel in straight lines, towards the enemy hero's location they spawned for.
    • These tornadoes are independent from the Tornado ability.
    • The tornadoes have an effect radius of 180, travel for up to 4500 range, and travel at a speed of 500.
    • Tornadoes have a 50% chance to spawn every second. If they do not spawn, 4 Forged Spirits spawn within 500 radius around the Magus.
  • Exort phase:
    • The aura switches from the custom debuff to Radiance (Active) icon.png Radiance's debuff. It now deals damage per second and blinds, instead of slowing.
    • In this phase, the Magus' cooldowns are reduced by 25%.
    • Chaos Meteors and Sun Strikes are cast onto all enemy heroes in short intervals.
    • The meteors spawn onto the heroes' locations, up to 3 per hero. They roll into random directions, up to a distance of 700.
    • Sun Strikes are created based on enemy movement, placed in front of them so that they would hit if the hero continues walking that direction.
    • The meteors and strikes are the same as the ones created by the Chaos Meteor and Sun Strike abilities listed below.
    • Meteors and Sun Strikes have each a 33% chance to spawn every second. If they do not spawn, 4 Forged Spirits spawn within 500 radius around the Magus.
  • Independent form the phases, Forged Spirits spawn at fixed locations every 30 seconds.
    • All spirits spawned by this ability use the base values, and not the Forge Spirit values.
    • The spirits are ordered to attack-move towards the Temple. This means they move towards the temple and attack everything on their way there.
    • Has a spawn limit of 40 spirits. All spirits despawn when the Magus dies.

Sadron's Protracted Frisson.

Notes:

  • Modified values: None.
  • Ability invokes when Invoker has 3 Quas instances.
  • Cold Snap immediately triggers on the target upon cast, so the next proc can only happen after the trigger cooldown.
  • Every time the effect triggers, the target is stunned and damaged.
  • Cold Snap does not trigger on self-inflicted damage, and on damage flagged as HP Removal.
  • With its current trigger cooldown and debuff duration, it can trigger up to 11 times (including the initial trigger upon cast).
  • Ability formulas:
    • Damage per proc: 0 + (7 * Quas)

Killing Wall of Koryx.

Notes:

  • Modified values: Wall duration, movement speed slow and damage per second.
  • Ability invokes when Invoker has 2 Quas and 1 Exort instances.
  • The Ice Wall is always created in front of Invoker, perpendicular to the line between Invoker and a point 200 range right in front of him.
  • Creates 15 wall segments, with a spacing of 80 between each, resulting in a total length of 1120. Each segment affects a 105 radius around itself.
  • The wall's effective length is 1330 (1120 wall length + 105 radius from both sides).
  • Each segment possesses a movement speed slowing aura. Its debuff lingers for 2 seconds.
  • The damage is independent from the slow, so getting further than 105 radius away from a segment immediately stops the damage, while the slow still lingers.
  • Deals damage in 1 second intervals, starting 1 second after cast, resulting in up to 13 possible instances.
  • Can deal up to 1248 damage to a single unit (before reductions), when it stays in range for its full duration.
  • Ice Wall is not a pathing blocker. Any unit can pass through it.

Notes:

  • Modified values: Cooldown, mana cost, effect delay and mana burned.
  • Ability invokes when Invoker has 3 Wex instances.
  • Applies the mana loss first, and then the damage.
  • Invoker only gains the mana when it burns mana from heroes. Mana burned on illusions and other units does not restore mana.
  • The damage and the restored mana are dependent on the amount of mana burned on the enemies.
    • This means if the enemy had no mana left to burn, it deals no damage to it and does not restore Invoker's mana.
  • Can restore up to 150 mana for Invoker from each affected hero.
  • The visual effects and the sound during the effect delay are visible and audible to everyone.

Notes:

  • Modified values: Travel distance, cyclone duration and bonus damage per Wex instance.
  • Ability invokes when Invoker has 2 Wex and 1 Quas instances.
  • The Tornado travels at a speed of 1000 and always travels the full distance, so it takes 4 seconds to reach the max distance.
  • The Tornado can hit units up to 4200 range away (travel distance + effect radius).
  • The damage is applied upon losing the Tornado debuff. Can deal up to 790 damage to each affected unit (before reductions).
  • While in the air, other units may pass below the cycloned units.
  • The Tornado provides 200 radius flying vision as it travels. This vision does not last.
  • Also provides the same vision for 1.75 seconds after reaching its final destination.

Notes:

  • Modified values: Cooldown, mana cost and damage.
  • Ability invokes when Invoker has 3 Exort instances.
  • The damage is spread evenly among all affected units within the targeted area.
    • Therefore, it deals 1075/537.5/358.33/268.75/215 damage when hitting 1/2/3/4/5 enemies.

Chaos Meteor

Affects
Enemies
Damage
Magical
Invoker pulls a flaming meteor from space onto the targeted location. Upon landing, the meteor rolls forward, constantly dealing damage based on the level of Exort, and rolling further based on the level of Wex. Units hit by the meteor will also be set on fire for a short time, receiving additional damage based on the level of Exort.
Cast Animation: 0.05+0
Cast Range: 700

Travel Distance (Wex): 1520
Effect Delay: 1.3
Effect Interval: 0.5
Main Damage per Interval (Exort): 150
Burn Damage per Second (Exort): 100
Burn Duration: 3
Cooldown: 25
Mana: 20
Modifiers
Debuff Chaos Meteor burn: Dispellable with any dispel.
Tarak's Descent of Fire.

Notes:

  • Modified values: Cooldown, mana cost, travel distance, main damage per interval and burn damage per second.
  • Ability invokes when Invoker has 2 Exort and 1 Wex instances.
  • The Chaos Meteor needs 1.3 seconds to land. It lands at the targeted point, not at Invoker's position.
  • Can hit units up to 2495 range away (cast range + travel distance + radius). The area between Invoker and the targeted point is unaffected.
  • The visual effects and the sound during the 1.3 seconds effect delay (the meteor falling from the sky) are visible and audible to everyone.
  • The Chaos Meteor rolls at a speed of 300 and always rolls the full distance, so it takes 5.06 seconds to reach the max distance.
  • After landing, the meteor deals its main damage and places the burn debuff to units within its effect radius in 0.5 second intervals, starting immediately upon landing.
  • The main damage can hit a unit up to 11 times and thus can deal up to 1650 damage (before reductions).
  • The burn debuff deals damage in 1 second intervals, starting 1 seconds after the debuff is placed, resulting in 3 instances for each debuff.
  • The debuffs from each interval fully stack and do not refresh each other. So a unit can be affected by 11 instances of the burn debuff per cast.
  • All possible instances of burn damage per unit together can deal up to 3300 damage (before reductions).
  • The whole Chaos Meteor, main and burn damage, can deal up to 4950 damage (before reductions) when a unit is hit by all possible instances.
  • The Meteor provides 400 radius flying vision while it is rolling. This vision does not last.
  • Also provides the same vision for 3 seconds after reaching its final destination.


Deafening Blast
Deafening Blast icon.png
Affects
Enemies
Damage
Magical
Invoker unleashes a mighty sonic wave in front of him, dealing damage to any enemy unit it collides with based on the level of Exort. The sheer impact from the blast is enough to knock those enemy units back for a duration based on the level of Quas, then disarm their attacks for a duration based on the level of Wex.
Cast Animation: 0.05+0
Cast Range: 1000
Starting Radius: 175
Travel Distance: 1000
End Radius: 225
Damage (Exort): 640
Knockback Distance (Quas): 302.67
Knockback Duration (Quas): 2
Disarm Duration (Wex): 4.5
Cooldown: 40
Mana: 300
Does not pierce spell immunity. Knockback and disarm persist if debuffs were placed before spell immunity. Disarm can be dispelled by spell immunity only.
Modifiers
Debuff Deafening Blast Knockback: Undispellable.
Debuff Deafening Blast Disarm: Undispellable.
Buluphont's Aureal Incapacitator.

Notes:

  • Modified values: Damage, knockback duration and disarm duration.
  • Ability invokes when Invoker has 1 Quas, 1 Wex and 1 Exort instances.
  • Deafening Blast travels at a speed of 1100 and always travels the full distance, which takes 0.91 seconds.
  • The blast can hit units up to 1225 range away (1000 travel distance + 225 end radius).
  • The complete area is shaped like a cone.
  • Applies a non-disabling Forced Movement, so affected enemies can still use spells and items during it and their channeling spells are not interrupted.
  • The knockback and disarm are applied at the same time.
  • This is how the knockback works:
    • Affected units are moved in 0.03 second intervals.
    • They are moved 66 times.
    • The first 1/3 times, units are moved linearly, by a distance of 6 per interval. 1/3 of the intervals is 22 times, which results in a distance of 132.
    • For the remaining 44 intervals, the units are moved exponentially with 0.98 times the speed of the previous interval.
    • So the remaining intervals together move the units by a distance of (sum 6 * 0.98 ^ 1 to 6 * 0.98 ^ 44 =) 170.67.
    • Summed up, the total knockbackc distance 302.67.
    • As conclusion, the knockback starts at a speed of 200 and decreases exponentially.
  • Can knock units over impassable terrain. During the knockback, all trees the units collide with get destroyed.
  • For the Dark Magus, Deafening Blast releases its blasts towards every direction around the Dark Magus, no matter what point is targeted.
    • A total of 12 blasts are released. One blast is released towards the targeted point, while the other eleven are adapted to it, with 30 degree angles between them.
    • A unit can only be hit by one blast per cast, so when a unit stands between two, only one hits it.
