We have begun migration of most wikis to our new host, Amazon Web Services. All but the top 100 wikis are in read-only mode until the migration is complete. Estimated completion: TBD -- Update: Fri 10/20 11pm UTC - We have encountered some unexpected issues. Our staff is working around the clock to complete this process as quickly as possible. Thank you for your patience.

Additional information[edit]


Soul Burn
Target Unit
Silences the target unit for 5 seconds. At the end of the silence, 30% of the damage received while silenced is inflicted as bonus magical damage.
Cast Range: 900
Damage Amplification: 30%
Duration: 5
Cooldown symbol.png 18
Mana symbol.png 100
Does not pierce spell immunity. Effect persists and attempts to deal damage when expiring while spell immune if debuff was placed before spell immunity and when not dispelled.
Debuff Orchid Malevolence Debuff: Dispellable with any dispel.


  • Does not directly amplify damage as it is dealt, but rather saves all damage values and deals 30% of it 5 seconds after cast.
  • The damage is applied as soon as the debuff expires. Dispelling the debuff, however, skips the damage entirely.
    • Recasting Soul Burn on the same target refreshes the duration.
    • Doing this delays the damage further, and gives more time to deal damage to the target.
    • The damage is credited to the last caster of Soul Burn on the target.

Recommended heroes[edit]

Heroes who may include an Orchid Malevolence in their build as a core item:

Clinkz minimap icon.png Clinkz, Storm Spirit minimap icon.png Storm Spirit.

Heroes who may include an Orchid Malevolence in their build situationally:

Silencer minimap icon.png Silencer, Outworld Devourer minimap icon.png Outworld Devourer, Queen of Pain minimap icon.png Queen of Pain, Nature's Prophet minimap icon.png Nature's Prophet, Slark minimap icon.png Slark, Spirit Breaker minimap icon.png Spirit Breaker, Invoker minimap icon.png Invoker, Arc Warden minimap icon.png Arc Warden.


  • Orchid is great against Intelligence heroes as they are dependent on their abilities to deal damage, but it is also effective against heroes with escape abilities like Weaver or Anti-Mage and strong initiation like Faceless Void and Enigma.
  • Get the item quickly before the enemy team gets items able to purge the silence.

Items Synergy[edit]

  • You can combine it with an item that provide mana burn like Diffusal Blade 1 icon.png Diffusal Blade or Necronomicon 1 icon.png Necronomicon to make your enemy unable to cast a spell after the silence is over.
