Duration: 12
Cooldown: 30
Debuff Item Dustofappearance: Dispellable with any dispel.


  • Interrupts the user's channeling spells upon using.
  • Places a debuff on enemies (including visible ones) within the radius upon cast. Leaving or entering the area afterwards has no effect.
  • Unlike the visual effect, the Reveal debuff is applied within the entire radius instantly upon cast.
  • Multiple debuffs do not stack, but refresh the duration instead.
  • Only slows units when they actually are invisible. This means during the fade time or fade delay of invisibility, the unit is not slowed.

Recommended heroes[edit]

Dust of Appearance is usually purchased by gankers and heroes who can pick off enemies on their own, being very useful to counter invisibility heroes and Shadow Blade icon.png Shadow Blade.



  • Prior to the July 14, 2017 Patch, Dust of Appearance's active ability, Reveal, did not have an official name. The name was taken from the Dota 2 Wiki and officially implemented into Dota 2.
