  • Cannot be cast on self.
  • The effect on self and the modifier on the target are independent from each other. Dispelling the target does not remove the effect on the caster.
  • Unlike Medallion, Solar Crest does not place a debuff on the caster. Instead, its effects are directly bound to its cooldown.
    • Its duration is always 7 seconds on the target, while the duration on self can vary when the cooldown gets manipulated.
    • This means when the cooldown is reduced, the reduction effects on self are briefer. The reduction effects on self also disappear immediately when the cooldown is refreshed.
    • This also means that the effects on self are applied when using Medallion of Courage, since they share a cooldown.
  • The armor reduction on self fully stacks. When having multiple Solar Crests, each of them reduce armor when on cooldown.
  • The target buff and target debuff fully stack with each other. The effects on self also stack with the target debuff.
    • When a unit is targeted by an allied and an enemy Solar Crest, the modifiers effectively cancel each other out.
    • When opposing heroes cast it on each other, they effectively have -24 armor, -10% movement speed, and -80 attack speed.
    • Multiple target debuffs or target buffs do not stack, but refresh their durations.
    • The target buff, target debuff and self-debuff fully stack with those applied by Medallion of Courage.
  • Can be cast on any unit, except on wards and buildings.
