The Lotus Orb is an item purchasable at the Main Shop, under Armor. However, it requires items from the Secret Shop to be assembled, or can be assembled entirely with items from the Secret Shop.

Ability[edit]

Applies a shield to the target unit for 6 seconds which re-casts most targeted spells back to their caster.

The shielded unit will still take damage from the spell.
Cast Range: 900
Duration: 6
Cooldown: 15
Mana: 75
Modifiers
Buff Item Lotus Orb Active: Undispellable.

Notes:

  • Double clicking the item automatically targets self. Multiple casts on the same target do not stack, but refresh the duration.
  • Can be cast on creep-heroes, however, it does not reflect any spell on them.
  • Does not reflect spells cast by allies.


Reflected abilities[edit]

Main Article: Spell Reflection

Recommended heroes[edit]

Lotus Orb is often picked up by initiators and tanks to deter the enemy from trying to interrupt them, as their role often puts them within harm's way. Echo Shell's dispel can also remove debuffs that prevent them from doing their jobs, and these heroes often appreciate some extra armor and mana.

Tips[edit]

  • Projectile-based spells are always reflected upon impact. This makes them easier to reflect than spells with instant effect, because the Echo Shell can be placed on the targeted unit before the projectile hits.

Trivia[edit]

  • The ability to reflect single-target spells back to their casters is actually an old ability concept in Dota. It was first seen in version 6.00 as a chance-based passive ability, belonging to Linken's Mirror, the pre-rework version of Linken's Sphere icon.png Linken's Sphere. The ability was removed in 6.09 and replaced by Spell Block, as Linken's Sphere got reworked.
