Bad against...[edit]

Anti-Mage icon.png
  • Blink allows Anti-Mage to easily stay with Keeper of the Light, due to his complete lack of mobility.
  • Spell Shield blocks a big part of Keeper of the Light's damage.
  • Mana Void is strong against Keeper of the Light because of his big mana pool, that he quickly replenishes in team-fights.

Night Stalker icon.png
  • Crippling Fear prevents Keeper of the Light from using his spells to keep his team alive during team-fights.

Nyx Assassin icon.png
  • Mana Burn is strong against Keeper of the Light due to his high mana pool.
  • Spiked Carapace can be used to reflect Illuminate damage and stun Keeper of the Light.
  • Vendetta allows Nyx Assassin to follow Keeper of the Light around if he tries to split-push.



Good against...[edit]

Monkey King icon.png
  • Blinding Light can knock Monkey King outside of his ultimate, Wukong's Command or can generally blind him effectively.
Wraith King icon.png
  • Wraith King's poor mobility makes him vulnerable to Illuminate.
  • Blinding Light can reduce his damage output as well as his already abysmal mobility.


Works well with...[edit]

Lina icon.png
  • In the laning statge, Chakra Magic can sustain Lina's mana pool and reduce cooldowns of Dragon Slave and Light Strike Array.
  • Lina's long attack range can still land on enemies being pushed back by Blinding Light.
Luna icon.png
  • In the laning stage, Chakra Magic can sustain Luna's mana pool and reduces Lucent Beam's cooldown to almost zero, a reliable harassing tool.
