Arc Lightning icon.png

Cast Animation: 0.2+0.63
Cast Range: 850 (Talent 1050)
Bounce Distance: 500
Number of Bounces: 6/9/12/15

  • Modified values:
    • Cast range: 850 -> 700
    • Number of bounces: 5/7/9/15 -> 6/9/12/15
    • Damage: 85/100/115/145 -> 85/105/125/155
    • Mana cost: 65/70/75/80 -> 55/60/65/70
    • Cooldown: 1.6 -> 1.6/1.4/1.2/1
  • The lightning bounces in 0.25 second intervals, so hitting all targets takes 1.25/2/2.75/3.5 seconds.
  • Can never hit the same unit twice per cast.
  • All bounces together can deal up to 510/945/1500/2325 (Talent 960/1620/2400/3450) damage (before reductions).
  • The Arc Lightning buff is a hidden buff required for the lightning to jump.

Lightning Bolt
Lightning Bolt icon.png
Calls down a bolt of lightning to strike an enemy unit, causing damage and a mini-stun. When cast, Lightning Bolt briefly provides unobstructed vision and True Sight around the target in a 750 radius. Can be cast on the ground, affecting the closest enemy hero in 375 range.
Cast Animation: 0.4+0.43
Cast Range: 700 (Talent 975)
Hero Search Radius: 375
Vision & True Sight Radius: 750
Damage: 175/250/325/400
Stun Duration: 0.2 (Talent 0.6)
Vision & True Sight Duration: 4.5
Cooldown: 6
Mana: 75/85/95/105
Does not pierce spell immunity. Spell immune units are still revealed by the True Sight.
Partially blocked by Linken's Sphere. Mini-stun and damage are blocked when hit, no matter if directly targeted or not. Vision is only blocked when directly targeted.
Bolts from the Nimbus are not blocked.
Debuff Stunned: Dispellable with strong dispels.
Debuff Truesight: Dispellable with death only.
A shocking punishment for rebellious heathen.


  • Modified values:
    • Damage: 100/175/275/350 -> 175/250/325/400
    • Mana cost: 75/95/115/135
  • When cast on the ground with no heroes within 375 radius, it still provides the 750 range flying vision and True Sight.
    • Provides the True Sight first, so that invisible heroes still take damage.
  • When targeting a unit, vision and True Sight are provided at its position upon cast. The vision is stationary, it does not follow the unit.
    • However, When the ground is targeted but the bolt hits a hero, the vision is centered on the targeted point, not the found hero.
  • The flying vision and True Sight last for 4.5 seconds. The True Sight is provided by an aura, and its debuff lingers for 0.5 seconds.
  • Searches for enemy heroes, illusions and creep-heroes when targeting ground. Whichever is the closest gets hit.
  • When targeting the ground, it can hit an enemy hero up to 1225 (Talent 1425) range away (cast range + search radius).
  • In order to hit a non-hero unit, it must be directly targeted.
  • Plays some lightning particles and a sound effect during the cast time, which are visible and audible to everyone.

Static Field
Static Field icon.png
Zeus shocks all nearby enemy units whenever he casts a spell, causing damage proportional to their current health.
Radius: 1200
Current Health as Damage: 4%/6%/8%/10% (Talent 6%/8%/10%/12%)
The air crackles with static when the Thundergod walks the world.


  • Modified values: None.
  • Applies its damage before the triggering spell's damage is applied.
  • Static Field does not trigger on active item abilities.
  • This is how many casts are required to bring units from full health below a certain health percentage with Static Field alone (before reductions):
    • 75% Health: 8/5/4/3 casts (Talent 5/4/3/3 casts)
    • 50% Health: 17/12/9/7 casts (Talent 12/9/7/6 casts)
    • 25% Health: 34/23/17/14 casts (Talent 23/17/14/11 casts)
    • 5% Health: 74/49/36/29 casts (Talent 49/36/29/24 casts)

Thundergod's Salvation
Thundergod's Wrath icon.png
No Target
Zeus calls down an immobile Cloud for each allied hero for protection. Each Cloud attacks nearby enemies using Zeus' current level of Lightning Bolt.
Cast Animation: 0.4+0.43
Radius: Global
Cloud Radius: 300
Non-Hero Attacks to Destroy: 16
Lightning Bolt Base Interval: 3/2.5/2
Duration: 15
Cooldown: 90
Mana: 225/325/450
Debuff Truesight: Dispellable with death only.
The Lord of Heaven smites all who oppose him, near or far.


  • The clouds Cast regular Lightning Bolts on the closest valid enemy target, based on Lightning Bolt's current level.
    • This means it also applies the mini-stun and provides vision and True Sight around the target.
    • It also means that the clouds do nothing if Lightning Bolt is not learned.
  • The damage source are the clouds themselves, meaning certain on-damage effects react on the Nimbus rather than on Zeus.
  • The base interval of the Lightning Bolts is affected by percentage-based cooldown reductions (Octarine Core icon.png Octarine Core).
  • The clouds start striking immediately upon cast if an enemy is within range.
  • Also strike immediately when the last strike was longer than an interval ago and an enemy enters the area.
  • Can strike up to 6/7/8 times over its full duration, considering default strike interval.
  • Does not require vision over the targets. The clouds can strike invisible units and units inside the Fog of War.
  • The clouds always strike the closest valid target. There are no priorities.
