To get out of the infested unit, the Consume sub-ability needs to be used, which causes area damage when used. If the host is a creep, it also gets killed, and Lifestealer gets healed based on its current health.
Cast range: 150
Mana cost: 50
Cooldown: 100/75/50

New Infest
Lifestealer infests target creep or allied hero, becoming undetectable inside. The infested unit has its max health increased, and gets healed for the same amount. If the target is a hero, their movement speed gets increased. If the target is a creep, its movement speed gets increased by less than heroes, and Lifestealer takes control over it. While infested, Lifestealer regenerates health based on his maximum health.
