Item Details

Ethereal Blade

Bonus:
+10 Strength
+40 Agility
+10 Intelligence

Active: Ether Blast

Launches a projectile which converts your target into ethereal form, increasing incoming magic damage. Target unit is slowed and cannot attack or be attacked, and takes 2x of your primary attribute + 75 as damage.

Cast Range: 800
Move Speed Slow: 80%
Magic Resistance Reduction: 40%
Allies/Self Duration: 4
Enemy Duration: 3

20
100

Additional Information

Can be cast on spell immune allies or self with no effect, wasting the mana and cooldown.

A flickering blade of a ghastly nature, it is capable of dealing damage in both magical and physical planes.

Additional Information:

Can be disassembled.

One Ethereal Blade grants a total of 190 health, 0.3 health regeneration, 5.6 armor, 40 attack speed, 130 mana, 0.4 mana regeneration and 10 (40 for agility heroes) attack damage.

Notes:

  • Double clicking the item casts it on self.
  • The projectile travels at a speed of 1200 and can be disjointed.
  • Damage and slow is only applied when targeting an enemy unit.
  • Applies the ethereal effect before dealing its own damage, effectively increasing the damage.
  • Reduces most heroes' total magic resistance to -5%, (assuming basic 25% magic resistance).
  • Reduces Meepo's total magic resistance to 9% and Visage's total magic resistance to -26%.
  • Does stack with magic amplification or movement speed slows of other sources, except with other ethereal effects.
  • However, on enemies, the slow is not dispelled. Only the ethereal form and magic resistance reduction is dispelled by the scrolls.
  • Shares cooldown with Ghost Scepter.

Whatever the primary attribute of the hero is. If it's Morphling it will be Agility.

Wow, you necroed a thread thats a year old. But in seriousness, veil is much better on zeus. It's cheaper and zeus doesn't benifit at all from the agility as he has horrible auto attack. Most people just get aghs refresher for the lolz though. The aoe also allows you to debuff multiple heros.

why not, this is very handy for certain ranged heros, the agility gives a massive boost to DPS and the ability is handy if your someone like zeus, just spam magic

I find this item rather pointless other thna a "Morph can 1-shot squishies" stick

I've literally only seen it used be morph and I really don't agree with an item this exclusive really.

Scepter is fine but this just seems unecessary

If you can land one of these on a Phantom Assassin around level 12 to 15, it's almost an instant kill.

Quoted:

would this be good against ursa? though need some coordination or something? like he gets next to someone you hit this and then lets say lina or something gets 40% more fun?


Yes, this item is very effective against Ursa. It also builds out of Ghost Scepter which is already a great counter to Ursa anyways.

This item is probably most successful on morphling as he can gain the most agility, this item followed by a adaptive strike can almost one shot any squishier hero.

If you've played wc3, Blood mage has a skill called banish, which makes a unit ethernal, which means only hittable by magic, while in this form it takes more magic dmg.
