Can anyone tell me why you can toggle the burn on and off i mean like seriously does it also burn allies i mean it doesn't do anything to your mana or health really so why turn it off?



If you're alone hiding in the trees from 5 enemy heroes, then you don't want the burn giving away your position.

I'd argue that radiance is also good on tanky heroes that can remain in the centre of team fights since I radiance burn will cancel blink dagger and deal damage to the entire enemy team. It also helps on chases and makes juking for the enemies harder as it cancels blink dagger.

It can be picked up by Centaur. I always get it on him. And it's most useful against heroes who will purchase Blink Dagger.

It depends on what hero you are using, if you are playing illusions hero, radiance will accelerate your farm ridiculously fast, meanwhile midas is a slower farming item than radiance.

I love to get this item on spectre because I can get any big item within 5~10min with that.

Not to start a riot, but I personally believe that Radiance is currently the worst item in the game. The point of getting a Radiance is, usually, to accelerate your farm. If it takes 20 minutes to farm, and you'll be useless until you get it, then why not get a Midas? Same thing, right? The upside to Radiance is that on certain heroes, this will accelerate your farm a ridiculous amount(ie: Naga Siren, old PL, and sometimes Spectre), but it's still too risky, and you're still better off going for a Midas most of the time. Or perhaps a Maelstrom. There's too many good options.

No, damage doesn't affect wards from what I know.

Anyone tested how is it goes with Vlads on Rikki for push lines and farming gold purposes?
