Spell Lifesteal
Can be used by illusions. Pierces spell immunity.
12% of spell damage dealt to enemy heroes is returned to the caster as health, regardless of spell damage type.

Lifesteal reduced to 2.5% against creeps.
Hero Spell Lifesteal: 12%
Creep Spell Lifesteal: 2.5%


  • Heals from any spell damage the owner deals (with a few exceptions) against enemy or allied units.
  • Heals from all three damage types and from many instantly killing effects.
  • In order for it to heal, the damage source must be the owner. Damage done by its summons (including wards) does not heal.

Recommended heroes[edit]

Venomancer icon.png

Venomancer's venoms become not just slow painful death for his foes, but also a steady stream of healing when he has a Voodoo Mask, letting him survive fights where he would normally be the first to die.

Leshrac icon.png
  • Leshrac has the highest potential ability damage output of any hero, making Spell Lifesteal extremely powerful in his hands. However, his high damage is balanced by high mana costs and cooldowns, which upgrading Voodoo Mask into Octarine Core solves instantly!
Bristleback icon.png
  • Bristleback can proc Spell Lifesteal through the constantly increasing damage from his Quill Spray, making this item more useful the longer he is in a fight.


  • This item is amazing for survival if your hero's damage output mostly consists of area of effect or damage over time abilities. Its upgrade Octarine Core lowers cooldowns, allowing you to heal from Spell Lifesteal more consistently later in the game.
