Yurnero, the Juggernaut, is a melee agility hero whose abilities allow him to sprint into battle and recklessly devastate enemies in an impenetrable flurry of blades.

His abilities grant invulnerability and spell immunity, turning him into an unstoppable force on a hairpin. Juggernaut is strong both offensively and defensively, and deals heavy damage both physical and magical with his Blade Fury and Omnislash ultimate, but he possesses below average strength and intelligence attributes, so he does not have as much health and mana as other heroes and is vulnerable when his abilities are on cooldown. For this reason, although his abilities make him powerful even in the early game, he cannot charge into forces without restraint until farmed and is usually played as a carry.


Juggernaut minimap icon.pngYurnero, the Juggernaut
▶️ "By the Visage of Vengeance, which drowned in the Isle of Masks, I will carry on the rites of the Faceless Ones."
No one has ever seen the face hidden beneath the mask of Yurnero the Juggernaut. It is only speculation that he even has one. For defying a corrupt lord, Yurnero was exiled from the ancient Isle of Masks--a punishment that saved his life. The isle soon after vanished beneath the waves in a night of vengeful magic. He alone remains to carry on the Isle's long Juggernaut tradition, one of ritual and swordplay. The last practitioner of the art, Yurnero's confidence and courage are the result of endless practice; his inventive bladework proves that he has never stopped challenging himself. Still, his motives are as unreadable as his expression. For a hero who has lost everything twice over, he fights as if victory is a foregone conclusion.


Blade Fury
Blade Fury icon.png
No Target
Enemies / Self
Causes a bladestorm of destructive force around Juggernaut, rendering him immune to magic and dealing damage to nearby enemy units.
Cast Animation: 0+0
Radius: 250

  • Does not interrupt Juggernaut's channeling spells upon cast.
  • During Blade Fury, Juggernaut cannot be affected by Ghost Scepter icon.png Ghost Scepter. The buff gets removed immediately.
  • Juggernaut can perform attacks, cast spells, and use items during Blade Fury, however, Omnislash and Swiftslash are inactive for the duration and cannot be cast.
  • During Blade Fury, Juggernaut's attacks deal 0 damage, except against wards and buildings.

Buff modifier_juggernaut_healing_ward_heal: Dispellable with death only.
Of the rituals learned at the Isle of Masks, tending wounds with a bit of voodoo magic has proven to be quite useful.


  • After cast, the ward automatically follows Juggernaut, if no other order is given.
  • The heal is provided by an aura. Its healing buff lingers for 2.5 seconds.
  • Can regenerate up to 55%/82.5%/110%/137.5% of a unit's max health over its full duration.

  • The proc chances of multiple crit sources stack.
    • If two sources of critical strike proc at the same time, the higher multiplier has priority.
  • The sound and particles play upon start of the attack, not when the attack lands.

Omnislash icon.png

Cast Animation: 0.3+0
Cast Range: 350
Slash Radius: 425
Attack Rate Divisor: 1.6

Partially blocked by Linken's Sphere. Only the very first slash of the cast is blocked.
Buff modifier_juggernaut_omnislash: Dispellable with death only.
Buff modifier_juggernaut_omnislash_invulnerability: Dispellable with death only.
‘The fruits of discipline; with practice comes strength.’


  • The slash interval equals Juggernaut's current attack rate, divided by 1.6.
    • This means the maximum possible interval for Omnislash is 4.38 and the minimum is 0.13, considering minimum and maximum possible attack speeds.
    • The interval is not set on cast. On each slash, the interval updates based on his current attack rate.
  • Causes Juggernaut to perform instant attacks on enemies he slashes.
    • These instant attacks are allowed to trigger attack modifiers normally.
    • The instant attacks ignore disarms, but do not have True Strike.
  • Can jump on invulnerable units, however, since Juggernaut attacks the targets, invulnerable (and ethereal) targets take no damage.
  • If no valid targets can be found within range and within 0.15 seconds after the previous jump, Omnislash ends prematurely.
  • On each slash, Juggernaut is positioned at the opposite side of the target from Juggernaut's position, facing the target.
    • The slash radius is centered around Juggernaut, not around the current target.
  • Juggernaut can cast spells and use items during Omnislash. However, Blade Fury is inactive for the duration and cannot be cast.
    • During Omnislash, Juggernaut does not need to turn in order to cast targeted spells or items.
  • Provides 200 radius flying vision lasting 1 second on each slash around the current target.
  • Recasting Omnislash while the previous cast is still active cancels the previous cast and starts a new instance.
    • This also applies when Swiftslash is cast during Omnislash, the former canceling the latter, and vice versa.
  • Centers the player's camera perspective on Juggernaut on cast, following his position during Omnislash.

Swiftslash icon.png
Enemies / Self
Performs a quick Omnislash.
Cast Animation: 0.3+0
Cast Range: 650
Duration: 0.8
Cooldown: 15
Mana: 100
Partially blocked by Linken's Sphere. Only the very first slash of the cast is blocked.
Buff modifier_juggernaut_omnislash: Dispellable with death only.
Buff modifier_juggernaut_omnislash_invulnerability: Dispellable with death only.


  • Does not require Omnislash to be leveled to be unlocked, once Aghanim's Scepter is acquired.
    • However, it relies on Omnislash to work, since it directly uses its values. This means when Omnislash is not learned, Swiftslash does nothing on cast.
  • All notes of Omnislash apply.
  • Swiftslash is distinguished by blue particles, as opposed to the orange particles of Omnislash.

Complexity: ★☆☆
Playstyle: What laid under the Juggernaut's mask, none could say. The last of his kind, Yurnero carries alone the martial traditions of his native isle, now sunken forever beneath the waves. The Juggernaut elevates swordplay to an art form, cutting down foes in the unstoppable cyclone of Blade Fury, and striking at every vulnerability with Blade Dance. Should his party sustain injury, he is quick to replenishes their vitality with a portable Healing Ward. A paragon of discipline, Yurnero waits patiently for the opportune moment to execute his most fearsome technique. Dashing between foes with imperceptible swiftness, the Juggernaut's Omnislash eviscerates his opponents long before any can mount a defense.
