Additional information[edit]

Soul Release
Provides 35 health regeneration when cast on allies, and deals 25 damage over 8 seconds when cast on enemies.

Cannot be cast on spell immune enemies. Attempts to damage if debuff was placed before spell immunity and when not dispelled.
Modifiers
Buff Item Urn Heal: Dispellable with any dispel.
Debuff Item Urn Damage: Dispellable with any dispel.

Notes:

  • Double clicking the item uses it on self.
  • Successive casts on the same target do not stack, but refresh the duration instead.
    • The buff and debuff are independent and stack with each other, although the heal gets canceled as soon as the damage ticks.
    • Urn of Shadow's heal does not stack with that of Spirit Vessel. Neither do their damage debuffs stack.
    • Spirit Vessel overrides the heal buff and damage debuff of Urn of Shadows, but the urn cannot override the vessel's modifiers.
    • When attempting to do so, Urn of Shadows only goes on cooldown, without losing charges.
  • Restores health in the form of health regeneration, so it heals for 3.5 health in 0.1 second intervals, which is 35 health per second.
  • Deals 25 damage in 1 second intervals, starting 1 second after cast, resulting in 8 damage instances.
  • Can heal a total of 280 health and deal a total of 200 damage to the target (before reductions).
  • Damage greater than 0 from any player (including allies and self) or Roshan icon.png Roshan dispels the healing effect.
    • Does not get dispelled by damage flagged as HP Removal.
  • When having multiple Urns of Shadows, the one in the higher inventory slot gains charges.
    • Slot priority order: Top left, top middle, top right, bottom left, bottom middle, bottom right.
    • Cannot gain charges while inside the backpack. The item must be in one of the 6 slots to gain charges.
    • When having no charges left, the urn gains 2 charges from the next enemy hero's death, instead of 1.
    • When there are multiple Urns of Shadows in the team, the hero who is closest to the dying enemy gets charges.
    • Urn of Shadows and Spirit Vessels are treated equally. When having both, the one in the higher inventory slot gets charges.
  • Upon upgrading an Urn of Shadows into a Spirit Vessel, all its current charges are carried over.
