This item is created with the following items:
Demon Edge,
Ring of Aquila,
Recipe (1400 gold)
and a weird item: Smoke of Deceit!

These items will all add up to the cost of- 4885 gold.

The buffs it give are:
+30 Damage,
+4 all attributes,
+4 bonus armor.

The Aura:
+25 Damage,
+2 agility,
-3.5 mana regen. (Mana regen will not go below 0.1)

Active Skills:
Toggle: When this item is on, you are invisible but at the cost of reduced vision, (-1100 vision at day, -450 vision at night) the invisibility will wear off if there is an enemy HERO or ROSHAN within 600 range of you. Your ally HEROES will also gain an invisibility buff but will wear off when they wander at least 350 range from you. When this item is switched off, you will lose 50% of all attributes for 5 seconds. Cannot be seen by wards or gems.

-You lose the mana regeneration,
-You are paying a lot for the recipe.

This item is very good for heroes like Sniper or Huskar when there are wards placed on the enemy team but is not very good if the enemy team are very safe, and durable. Invisible heroes are also a counter to this item as they can wander around invisible without you seeing them and they will remove invisibility if they get close to you. Not to mention the negative mana regeneration so it will have a tremendous effect to your allies with the need for mana.

it's an intresting ideea tho I belive an item of this power giving +55 dmg to yourself of the cost of a relic and the aura is a bit too much, maybe nerf the aura and get rid of the minus mana regen, it's just a silly ideea.

Why? The minus mana regeneration makes it less powerful. :/

So why should I buy this over a normal Smoke of Deceit and a Sacred Relic?I get them cheaper and they effectively give me the same bonuses.

And really?Mana degeneration?Who should I buy this on?Nobody likes having their mana draied,probably the only hero that I would get it on would be outworld devourer

dont forget, this is a team helping item, i know a normal smoke also helps ur team, but however, this one allows ur team to get closer to the enemy without being spotted, also it gives of an aura, unlike the sacred relic which is self centered. Besides, ur mana wont get drained becuz i wrote above that your mana regen cannot go below 0.1

It would take using 48 smokes to make this a cost effective purchase.

Supports sould not have that much farm and Cary's should not be the ones buying smoke.
My lone druid starting items are 12 Iron wood branches, 6 for the hero and 6 for the bear. Even if the bear does not get stats more twigs are OP on any hero.
