Attacking to end the invisibility will deal 175 bonus damage to the target, and for 5 seconds, disable their passive abilities, and reduce their damage output by 50%.

Notes:

  • The attack out of Silver Edge's Shadow Walk cannot miss.
  • Does not interrupt the user's channeling spells upon cast.
  • The bonus damage is not applied when attacking wards and buildings out of the invisibility.
  • Applies a damage reduction and a break on the target when attacking from invisibility, disabling passive abilities.
  • Places the debuff upon before the attack damage is applied, but still relies on the attack (or projectile) to hit.
  • Directly reduces any damage the debuffed target deals, before any other reductions. This includes damage from spells.
  • The invisibility is lost upon reaching the cast point of spells, or upon finishing an attack (for ranged heroes upon projectile launch).
  • Unlike Shadow Blade, Silver Edge does not apply the damage if an attack hits during the fade time.
  • Allows the user to pass through other units, including wards, but not through buildings.
  • The user can pick up and drop items without breaking the invisibility.

Tips[edit]

  • Be aware that the Break mechanic has no effect on your opponents' items. If they have a Daedalus icon.png Daedalus or Butterfly icon.png Butterfly, for example, they will still receive the full benefits of these items.
  • Consider purchasing this item if the enemy has troubling passives such as Blur icon.png Blur, Berserker's Blood icon.png Berserker's Blood, Craggy Exterior icon.png Craggy Exterior, Fury Swipes icon.png Fury Swipes, Bristleback ability icon.png Bristleback, and Untouchable icon.png Untouchable.
  • The 50% damage reduction is incredibly useful for ganking. If you find a lone enemy Hero (especially a farming carry), the damage reduction will give them difficulty fighting back, and if they lack an escape mechanism or followed up with proper disables, it can result in their swift death.
  • Remember that abilities using stacks (such as Reactive Armor icon.png Reactive Armor, Necromastery icon.png Necromastery and Fury Swipes icon.png Fury Swipes) are only prevented from gaining or placing new stacks. If the target already has existing stacks (on themselves or on their target), their passive can still function until the stacks expire (such as Reactive Armor's regeneration/armor and Fury Swipes' additional damage).
