Hood of Defiance
From Dota 2 Wiki
| Hood of Defiance|
|A furred, magic resistant headpiece that is feared by wizards.|
- Stacks multiplicatively with other sources of magic resistance.
- Increases most heroes' total magic resistance to 43.75%, assuming basic 25% magic resistance and no other sources of magic resistance.
- Increases Meepo's and Visage's total magic resistance to 51.25% and 32.5% respectively, assuming their basic magic resistance and no other sources of magic resistance.
- Interrupts the user's channeling spells upon cast.
- Blocks damage before any reductions, except when spell immune, during which it does not block any magical damage.
- Recasting the ability refreshes the buff and resets the barrier's absorb capacity.
- Does not stack with other magical damage barriers.
- If multiple sources of barriers are active on a unit, all of them lose capacity from the same absorbed damage instance.
- Does not share cooldown with Pipe of Insight.
- Only blocks magical damage, not spell damage of other types.
Situational: Every hero that has Pipe of Insight as default situational item.
- Prior to the July 14, 2017 Patch, Hood of Defiance's active ability, Barrier, did not have an official name. The name was taken from the Dota 2 Wiki and officially implemented into Dota 2.
