Additional Information[edit]

Cannot be used by illusions. Does not pierce spell immunity.
Ability
Passive
Affects
Enemies
Places a debuff when you attack enemies, causing them to do 35% less spell damage for 4 seconds.
Spell Damage Reduction: 35%
Duration: 4
Modifiers
Debuff modifier_item_mage_slayer_debuff: Dispellable with any dispel.

Notes:

  • Successive attacks with Mage Slayer do not stack the debuff, but refresh the duration instead.
  • The attacks first apply the debuff, then their own damage.
  • Stacks multiplicatively with other sources of spell damage reduction and amplification.


Recommended Heroes[edit]

  • Hitting multiple targets with Sleight of Fist can reduce the enemy team's magic damage output significantly for the duration of the debuff.
Monkey King icon.png
  • Hitting multiple targets with Boundless Strike and Wukong's Command can reduce the enemy team's magic damage output significantly for the duration of the debuff.
Pangolier icon.png
  • Hitting multiple targets with Swashbuckle can reduce the enemy team's magic damage output significantly for the duration of the debuff.
Phantom Lancer icon.png
  • Phantom Lancer benefits from the magic damage reduction significantly particularly because Black King Bar icon.png Black King Bar active identifies his hero and may not be an option.

  • Agility is synergistic with Cloak and Dagger.
  • Hitting multiple targets with Tricks of the Trade can reduce the enemy team's magic damage output significantly for the duration of the debuff.
