Ability[edit]

Affects
Enemies
Dispels the target and applies a debuff for 5 seconds. Continuously dispels the target. Anytime the target is attacked, it will be slowed by 80% for 0.5 seconds.
Cast Range: 900
Movement Speed Slow: 80%
Slow Duration: 0.5
Duration: 5
Cooldown: 11
Mana: 75
Modifiers
Debuff Nullifier Mute: Undispellable.
Debuff Nullifier Slow: Dispellable with any dispel.

Notes:

  • The projectile travels at a speed of 1000.
  • Applies a basic dispel in 0.2 second intervals, starting immediately as the debuff is applied, resulting in 25 dispel instances.
  • Nullifier first applies the dispel, then the debuff.
  • The slow immediately triggers on the target upon projectile hit as well, so that it gets slowed on hit.
    • When the target already has the Nullify debuff, refreshing it with a new cast does not trigger the slow.
  • After that, the slow triggers on every successful attack hitting the target. This means missed attacks do not trigger it.
    • The slow does not trigger when the target turns ethereal before attack projectiles hit it.
  • The slow has no trigger cooldown, so that the target can get slowed for the whole duration if it gets hit by an attack at least once every 0.5 seconds.
  • Can be cast on invulnerable units, applying the dispel and the debuff if the invulnerability can be dispelled.
    • However, if the invulnerability cannot be dispelled, the debuff cannot be applied, but can be refreshed, if already debuffed.
  • Despite the internal modification's name. Nullifier does not mute the target.


Recommended heroes[edit]

Arc Warden icon.png
  • Arc Warden's natural high attack speed and low attack damage synergize very well with Nullifier's bonus damage, the Tempest Double also benefits fully from this damage.
Broodmother icon.png
  • Her Broodmother Spiderling icon.png Spiderling and Unknown Unit icon.png Spiderite will continue to slow the taget non-stop.
  • Nullifies all the benefits of escape items that supports usually build against your hero.
Clinkz icon.png
  • Nullify combined with Skeleton Walk will trigger the slow with almost no interruptions.
Riki icon.png
Slark icon.png
  • Slark's fast attack speed keeps Nullified enemies slowed, and makes it harder for targets to escape after Pounce ends.
Troll Warlord icon.png
  • Troll Warlord's high attack speed will guarantee many procs of slow on Nullifed enemies.
  • Nullifier disables counter items against Troll, such as Ghost Scepter icon.png Ghost Scepter or Ethereal Blade icon.png Ethereal Blade.
Venomancer icon.png
  • Venomancer slows keeps Nullified enemies slowed, and makes it harder for targets to escape.
Viper icon.png
  • Viper's slowing debuff keeps Nullified enemies permanently slowed and makes it harder for targets to escape.
Witch Doctor icon.png
  • A carry Witch Doctor can continuously trigger the movement slow with the fast attack speed of the Death Ward to keep the enemy in his attack range.

Tips[edit]

  • Because this item has a short range and slow projectile speed, it is easier to land from a melee hero with a Blink Dagger icon.png Blink Dagger, Shadow Blade icon.png Shadow Blade or ability to close the distance.
  • A ranged hero should instead buy a Scythe of Vyse icon.png Scythe of Vyse especially if he/she is an Intelligence hero.
  • Use Nullifier on heroes with defensive items like Glimmer Cape icon.png Glimmer Cape, Eul's Scepter of Divinity icon.png Eul's Scepter of Divinity and Ghost Scepter icon.png Ghost Scepter.
  • Use Nullifier on heroes with offense items like Mask of Madness icon.png Mask of Madness, Satanic icon.png Satanic and Mjollnir icon.png Mjollnir.
  • Since Force Staff icon.png Force Staff is dispellable, Nullifier will stop enemy heroes after they have been pushed a very short distance.
  • Use it before the enemy uses Black King Bar icon.png Black King Bar, as the Nullifier debuff is not dispellable. It will prevent them from activating items like Mask of Madness icon.png Mask of Madness and Satanic icon.png Satanic and hinder them man fighting you.
  • Use it on heroes that use dispellable Buffs on themselves to escape or deal/prevent damage like Windrun and Flame Guard.
  • Use it on heroes with illusions to keep track of the real hero. Combine it with Radiance (Active) icon.png Radiance or other AOE damage over time to keep them slowed .
