Cast Animation: 1+?
Spawn Radius: 900
Number of Sandswarm Burster: 20
Cooldown: 15
Mana: 0

Notes:

  • This ability is not visible in the HUD.
  • A Giant Sandstorm Burrower cannot have more than 20 Sandswarm Bursters alive at the same time.
    • Casting it while already having 20 does nothing, wasting the cooldown.
    • Casting when havling less than 20 summons less bursters, so that limit is not exceeded.
  • The Sandswarm Bursters always spawn burrowed.
  • The summons are positioned randomly around the Giant Sandswarm Burrower within a 900 radius. They always face east on spawn.
  • The summons do not have a set duration, and do also not die when the burrower dies.

Nyx Assassin buries himself beneath the battlefield over a short duration. Once burrowed, Spiked Carapace instantly stuns nearby enemies when cast, the range of Mana Burn and Impale is increased, and Impale's cooldown is decreased. While burrowed, Nyx Assassin is stationary, unable to attack and invisible. His health and mana regeneration are also increased, and he gains damage reduction from all damage sources.
