  • When a melee and a ranged hero with Orb of Venoms attack one target, the slow of the first applied debuff is used and refreshed.
  • Deals damage in 1 second intervals, starting 1 second after the debuff is applied, resulting in 3 instances.
  • Can deal up to 15 damage when applied by melee heroes and 9 damage when applied by ranged heroes (before reductions).
  • The damage over time is lethal.
