Sadist (6.75–6.88f)
Cannot be used by illusions. Disabled by Break. Pierces spell immunity.

Necrophos gains health and mana regeneration for killing units. Hero Kills give 10 times the bonus.
Health Regen Bonus per Stack: 1/2/3/6
Mana Regen Bonus per Stack: 2/4/6/12
Stack Duration: 6
Disabled by Break. Prevents gaining new stacks. Already existing stacks still provide bonus health and mana regeneration.
Cannot be used by illusions. Illusions do get the buff from last hitting, but do not gain any regeneration from it.
Modifiers
Buff Sadist: Undispellable.
Buff Sadist Counter: Dispellable with any dispel.
Poor souls who succumb to Rotund'jere's plagues are recycled for future use.

Notes:

  • All stacks work fully independently from each other. They do not refresh each other, but share a status buff. The number of current stacks is visible on the buff.
  • Restores health and mana in the form of health and mana regeneration, so it regenerates 0.1/0.2/0.3/0.6 health and 0.2/0.4/0.6/1.2 mana in 0.1 second intervals per stack.
  • Each stack can restore a total of 6/12/18/36 health and 12/24/36/72 mana.
  • Hero kills add 10 stacks at once, regenerating a total of 60/120/180/360 health and 120/240/360/720 mana.
  • Although the Sadist counter buff is dispellable, doing so has no effect, as it gets immediately reapplied.
