Arc Lightning
Arc Lightning icon.png
Hurls a bolt of lightning that leaps through nearby enemy units.
Cast Animation: 0.2+0.63
Cast Range: 850 (Talent 1050)
Bounce Distance: 500
Number of Bounces: 5/7/9/15
Damage: 85/100/115/145
Cooldown: 1.6
Mana: 65/70/75/80
Partially blocked by Linken's Sphere. Blocked fully only when primary target.
Buff Arc Lightning: Dispellable with death only.
Arc Lightning is Zeus' favorite spell to use against puny mortals.


  • Modified values: None.
  • The lightning bounces in 0.25 second intervals, so hitting all targets takes 1.25/1.75/2.25/3.75 seconds.
  • Can never hit the same unit twice per cast.
  • The Arc Lightning buff is a hidden buff required for the lightning to jump.

Lightning Bolt
Lightning Bolt icon.png
Calls down a bolt of lightning to strike an enemy unit, causing damage and a mini-stun. When cast, Lightning Bolt briefly provides unobstructed vision and True Sight around the target in a 750 radius.
Cast Animation: 0.4+0.43
Cast Range: 700 (Talent 900)
Damage: 150/225/325/400
Sight Duration: 4.5
Stun Duration: 0.2
Cooldown: 6
Mana: 75/80/85/90
Debuff Stunned: Dispellable with strong dispels.
Debuff Truesight: Dispellable with death only.
A shocking punishment for rebellious heathen.


  • Modified values: Mana cost and damage. Removed point targeting.
  • The vision from Lightning Bolt is stationary, it does not follow the unit.
  • The flying vision and True Sight last for 4.5 seconds. The True Sight is provided by an aura, and its debuff lingers for 0.5 seconds.
  • Plays some lightning particles and a sound effect during the cast time, which are visible and audible to everyone.

Static Field
Disabled by Break. Does not pierce spell immunity.
Static Field icon.png
Zeus shocks all nearby enemy units whenever he casts a spell, causing damage proportional to their current health.
Radius: 1200
Current Health as Damage: 4%/6%/8%/10% (Talent 5.5%/7.5%/9.5%/11.5%)
The air crackles with static when the Thundergod walks the world.


  • Modified values: None.
  • Applies its damage before the triggering spell's damage is applied.
  • Static Field does not trigger on active item abilities.
  • This is how many casts are required to bring units from full health down to a certain health percentage with Static Field alone (before reductions):
    • 75% Health: 7/5/3/3 casts
    • 50% Health: 17/11/8/7 casts
    • 25% Health: 34/22/17/13 casts
    • 5% Health: 73/48/36/28 casts

Thundergod's Salvation
Thundergod's Wrath icon.png
No Target
Zeus calls down an immobile Cloud for each allied hero for protection. Each Cloud attacks nearby enemies using Zeus' current level of Lightning Bolt.
Cast Animation: 0.4+0.43
Radius: Global
Cloud Radius: 300
Non-Hero Attacks to Destroy: 16
Lightning Bolt Base Interval: 3/2.5/2
Duration: 15
Cooldown: 90
Mana: 225/325/450
Debuff Truesight: Dispellable with death only.
The Lord of Heaven smites all who oppose him, near or far.


  • The clouds Cast regular Lightning Bolts on the closest valid enemy target, based on Lightning Bolt's current level.
    • This means it also applies the mini-stun and provides vision and True Sight around the target.
    • It also means that the clouds do nothing if Lightning Bolt is not learned.
  • The damage source are the clouds themselves, meaning certain on-damage effects react on the Nimbus rather than on Zeus.
  • The base interval of the Lightning Bolts is affected by percentage-based cooldown reductions (Octarine Core icon.png Octarine Core).
  • The clouds start striking immediately upon cast if an enemy is within range.
  • Also strike immediately when the last strike was longer than an interval ago and an enemy enters the area.
  • Can strike up to 6/7/8 times over its full duration, considering default strike interval.
  • Does not require vision over the targets. The clouds can strike invisible units and units inside the Fog of War.
  • The clouds always strike the closest valid target. There are no priorities.
