Recipe (900)

The Mjollnir is an item purchasable at the Main Shop, under Artifacts. However, it can only be completed with items from the Secret Shop.


Static Charge
Places a charged shield on a target unit for 15 seconds which has a 20% chance to release a 200 magical damage shocking bolt at a nearby attacker and 4 additional enemies.
Cast Range: 800
Proc Chance: 20%
Proc Cooldown: 1
Search Radius: 900
Max Number of Targets: 5
Damage: 200
Shield Duration: 15
Cooldown symbol.png 35
Mana symbol.png 50
Partially pierces spell immunity. Can be cast on spell immune allies.
Can be procced by spell immune enemies, and attempts to damage them. Cannot hit secondary spell immune enemies.
Buff Item Mjollnir Static: Dispellable with any dispel.


  • Double clicking the item casts it on self.
  • Successive casts on the same target do not stack, but refresh the duration.
  • The radius is centered around the shielded unit.
  • Upon proccing, the proccing unit and 4 random enemy units within the radius are hit.
    • If the damage source is more than 900 range away, it still can proc and hit 4 random enemies within range.
  • Static Charge cannot proc more than once per second.
  • Despite the description, Static Charge can proc on any damage, including from spells, not only on attacks.
  • Does not trigger on self-inflicted damage, and damage flagged as HP Removal.

Chain Lightning
Grants a 25% chance on attack to release a bolt of electricity that leaps between 12 targets within a 900 radius, dealing 170 magical damage to each.
Proc Chance: 25%
Bounce Distance: 900
Number of Bounces: 12
Bounce Interval: 0.25
Damage: 170
Cooldown symbol.png 0.2
Partially pierces spell immunity. Can proc on and attempts to damage spell immune enemies. Cannot bounce to spell immune enemies.
Buff Mjollnir Chain: Undispellable.


  • Procs cannot be evaded
  • Does not stack with the Chain Lightning of Maelstrom icon.png Maelstrom or other Mjollnirs.
  • When obtaining multiple items with the Chain Lightning ability, only the one that has been continuously the longest in the inventory works.
  • The lightning bounces in 0.25 second intervals, so hitting max targets takes 2.75 seconds.
  • Can never hit the same unit twice per proc.
  • Can only proc on successfully hit attacks, thus missed attacks cannot proc.
  • Chain Lightning can proc while a previous chain lightning is still bouncing.
  • The Mjollnir Chain buff is a hidden buff required for the lightning to jump.
  • Chain Lightning does not use a regular cooldown. It is neither displayed on the item icon when proccing, nor is it affected by cooldown manipulating effects.

  • Mjollnir is very effective against heroes with illusions like Naga Siren, Spectre and particularly Phantom Lancer and Chaos Knight that can surround you because the lightning goes all around you compared to cleave and the static charge has more chance to be triggered.
  • This item is very good for pushing, you can apply the Static Charge on a creep to push a lane safely while you jungle and get extra gold.
  • This is the most effective item to push back mega creeps.


  • Mjölnir is the name of Thor's Hammer in Norse mythology.
