Old Abilities

Heartpiercer icon.png
Pangolier reads his enemies perfectly, deftly slipping his blade past defenses. Each attack has a chance to negate enemy armor and slow the target for a duration, activating after a short delay.
Proc Chance: 15%
Total Armor Reduction: 100%
Movement Speed Slow: 35%/40%/45%/50%
Debuff Delay: 2
Debuff Duration: 2/3/4/5
Debuff Heartpiercer Delay: Dispellable with any dispel.
Debuff Heartpiercer Debuff: Dispellable with any dispel.
These fools know nothing of real armor…


  • Upon proccing a visual effect and a debuff on the target indicate the delay until the armor negation and slow are applied.
    • If the target is invulnerable after the delay, the armor negation and slow will not be applied.
  • The armor negation sets the target's armor to 0. This means it also negates armor reducing effects.
  • Gaining or losing armor after debuff is already placed does not matter. It always gets negated completely.
  • Despite what the HUD displays, Heartpiercer negates all armor, including bonus armor, and not just base armor and that gained by agility.
    • Physical Resist on HUD is always right.
  • The armor reduction affects creeps as well, even though their armor value and physical resist does not change in the HUD.
  • When proccing on an enemy who already has the reducing debuff, it refreshes that debuff, instead of placing a new delay debuff.
  • When proccing on an enemy who already has the delay debuff, nothing happens.
  • The proccing attack first applies the debuff, then its own damage.
