This skill able to hit an enemy unit if it is 800 AoE nearby the user and visible to sight. This skill deals only 1/4 of it's total damage to all units that was 130 AoE nearby the struck unit.

- This Item is sold on the Shop; Recipe Shop 4 and located at the last slot of this Shop. This Item belongs here because it is a level 4 Item that almost has same effect like the items on this shop and I'm pretty sure that it really fits well in this Shop.


Hero Synergies

Zeus, the Lord of Olympia
- This Item can synergise with Zeus because of his skill that can damage units in line or AoE. It can also fit well with Zeus' theme since it is lightning.

IPB Image
Leshrac the Malicious, the Tormented Soul
- Leshrac can make use of this Item because of his skill set that damages enemies in an AoE that can synergise with the Item.

IPB Image
Ezalor, the Keeper of the Light
- Because of Ezalor's Illuminate and this Item, he can kill the enemies' Hero from afar.

IPB Image
Raigor Stonehoof, the Earthshaker
- Raigor's AoE stun and damage skill set can synergise well with this Item.

Item Synergies

IPB Image
- With Radiance and this Item, enemies that was nearby the user will get killed easily.

IPB Image
- With Dagon and the active effect of this Item, one enemy Hero can get a massive damage or get killed.

IPB Image
Shiva's Guard
- This Item can synergise with Shiva's Guard since it has a Passive ability that can damage and paralyze the enemy.

  • This Item can be a counter to those enemy Heroes that spam skills.
  • This Item can also be use as a great damaging Item to the enemy's Heroes.
  • This Item make use of the item Magic Stick which is an addition to Magic Stick as an Item component.

Answers to common questions.

Q: Can the Passive effect of this Item still activates even if the user is stunned, silenced or disabled?
A: Yes, it can be activated anytime because it is a Passive skill that cannot be silenced or disabled.

Q: How the the Item's effects works?
A: The Passive ability of this Item works like a mini Storm Seeker, but it only hit one enemy unit that was nearby the user and it also has a chance to paralyze the struck unit. It also deals minor damage to units that was 130 AoE nearby the struck unit. For every 6 seconds that passes, this effect activates. If there is nothing that will be strike by lightning, this Item will not automatically cooldown. While the Active ability of this Item works like a small radius Shockwave that has a far travelling distance. This skill can be target to the ground and will go straight through it and damages all the units that came closer to it. The lightning travels at a fast speed.

Q: Why is this Item usefull?
A: It can be a counter to those enemies that often spam skills because they defend on it.

Q: What kind of units does this Item's effect able to target?
A: The passive and active ability of this Item can only hit non-mechanical units and not mechanical ones. It cannot also hit units that was immune to magic but they'll still get struck by lightning but it has no damage.

Do the charges go away after you use the spell?

What consumes charges? Also, I always find nuking items weird seeing as dagon is already there, and it's just a straight nuke. This has a cost relative to Dagon2, roughly, but seems much more powerful.

Perhaps just have either the active or the passive, not both, otherwise it's really too powerful.

I'm same with Zlad and UniT3D about the charges for your item,

are they consumable after the active and/or passive gets activated or not?

The active @ max charges deals 500 AoE damage at 800 range with 15 seconds cd. Dagon 2 which is 400 gold more expensive deals 500 damage at 650 range with 36 seconds cd.

Apart from that it has much much more useful stats compared to Dagon AND a uber passive that apart from dealing damage on a random target in a huge AoE around the carrier, it also has a chance that albeit low can immobilize the unit struck for 70% of hex's disable time. On top of that it deals 530 (!!!) damage @ max charges. >.>

Also, weirdly the checking AoE for charge storing has been dramatically decreased from magic stick (2000 --> 1400) why?

All in all, needs TONS of fixing, or a humongous price of ~8k. >.>

I prefer the former though. Elseways sure T-D.

Also remove the chance to "paralyze" on proc.
