  • Successive casts on the same target do not stack, but refresh the duration.

Quelling Shot (Wraith) icon.png
Drow's arrow splits in front of her in a cone shape, dealing less damage but cleaving multiple targets. If Frost Arrows is activated, Quelling Shot's arrows will be converted to Frost Arrows, increasing the mana cost per arrow.

Quelling Shot is a Unique Attack Modifier, and does not stack with other Unique Attack Modifiers.
Cast Range: 1000
Arrow Travel Distance: 850
Arrow Hit Radius: 35
Arrow Spread End Radius: 140/175/210/245
Number of Arrows: 4/5/6/7
Damage per Arrow: 50%
Cooldown: 0
Mana: 6/12/18/24


  • The arrows travel at a speed of 1250, the same speed as the default attack projectiles.
  • Launches 4/5/6/7 arrows with an a distance of 35 between each other, so that the total area is shaped like a cone with an end width of 140/175/210/245.
  • Due to the small arrow radius, there are small gaps between the arrows towards the end of the cone where enemies are not hit.
  • When an arrow hits an enemy, the arrow disappears.
  • An enemy can be hit by multiple arrows.
  • When using autocast, right-clicking an enemy casts this spell. None of the projectiles launched home an enemy.
  • When used together with Frost Arrows, the mana cost of Quelling Shot increases increases to the following values with each level of Frost Arrows:
    • Level 1: 12/14/16/18
    • Level 2: 18/20/22/24
    • Level 3: 24/26/28/30
    • Level 4: 30/32/34/36

Precision Aura

Precision Aura icon.png
No Target / Aura
Adds bonus damage to the physical attack of allied, ranged Hero units on the map based on a percentage of Drow's agility. Affects creeps for 30 seconds when cast.
Cast Animation: 0+0
Radius: Global
Agility as Ranged Attack Damage Bonus: 20%/26%/32%/38% (Talent 26%/32%/38%/44%)

Buff Trueshot Aura: Dispellable with death only.
Buff Trueshot Global: Dispellable with death only.
Traxex' time spent alone in the forests of her Drow home has allowed her to teach other archers how to improve their bow skills.


  • Modified values: None.
  • Interrupts Drow Ranger's channeling spells upon cast.
  • Checks Drow Ranger's agility periodically and adapts the bonus damage instantly.
  • Activating Precision Aura does not place a buff on allied ranged creeps, it instead makes the aura affect them as well.
    • This means that creeps summoned or spawned after the activation still get the bonus for the remaining duration.
  • Active aura persist through Drow Ranger's death, however, it does not provide the bonus during her death.
  • The buff lingers for 0.5 seconds. This goes for both, the passive aura for heroes and the active aura for creeps.

Can be used by illusions. Can be disjointed. Partially disabled by Break. Pierces spell immunity.
Marksmanship icon.png
(Upgradable by Aghanim's Scepter. Enemies)
Drow's experiences in battle improve her accuracy and effectiveness in combat, providing a passive bonus to Agility. Grants no bonus if there are enemy heroes within 400 range.
Enemy Hero Search Radius: 400
Agility Bonus: 40/60/80 (Talent 65/85/105)
Splinter Search Radius: 0 (Upgradable by Aghanim's Scepter. 375)

Buff Marksmanship: Dispellable with death only.
Debuff Marksmanship Reduction: Dispellable with death only.
The Drow Ranger is the epitome of archery prowess.


  • Modified values: None.
  • An icy particle effect is visible on Drow Ranger while Marksmanship is active.
  • None of the enemies count as heroes, therefore, Marksmanship is permanently active.
  • This is how much extra damage Precision Aura grants in conjunction with Marksmanship's agility bonus: [?]
    • Marksmanship Level 1: 8/10.4/12.8/15.2 // 10.4/12.8/15.2/17.6 (Talent 13/16.9/20.8/24.7 // 16.9/20.8/24.7/28.6)
    • Marksmanship Level 2: 12/15.6/19.2/22.8 // 15.6/19.2/22.8/26.4 (Talent 17/22.1/27.2/32.3 // 22.1/27.2/32.3/37.4)
    • Marksmanship Level 3: 16/20.8/25.6/30.4 // 20.8/25.6/30.4/35.2 (Talent 21/27.3/33.6/39.9 // 27.3/33.6/39.9/46.2)
  • The Aghanim's Scepter icon.png Aghanim's Scepter upgrade requires Marksmanship to be learned and causes Drow Ranger to perform instant attacks on 2 random enemies around the primary target.
    • This means the splinters are regular attacks, using Drow Ranger's 1250 projectile speed.
    • It also means that they can proc any attack modifier or any on-hit effect like a regular attack.
    • The splinters are only released if the primary attack successfully hits a target. This means missed or disjointed attacks do not release any splinters.
    • If Drow Ranger is blinded, the splinters can miss, unless she has True Strike. They can also miss to evasion.
    • The splinters originate from the primary target's location, not Drow Ranger's location.
    • Since the splinters are independent attacks, their damage does not depend on how much damage the primary target took.
    • The damage penalty only applies to the attack damage and any bonuses. Damage dealt in separate instances is unaffected (e.g. Maelstrom icon.png Maelstrom procs).
  • When using Frost Arrows manually, then the resulting splinters apply the slow as well.
    • However, when using autocast, the splinters only apply it when having it on autocast as the splinters hit their target.
    • Either way (be it manually used, or via autocast), it drains mana upon hitting the target, and not upon splintering.
    • Therefore, it only drains mana upon successfully hitting the splinter targets. Missed attacks do not drain mana.
  • The splinter arrows do not target invisible, invulnerable and hidden units, as well as units in the Fog of War.
