Consumable Total Cost: 90

Item Details

Dust of Appearance

Active: Reveal
Charges: 1

Reveals and slows invisible Heroes in a nearby area.

Radius: 1050
Move Speed Slow: 20%
Duration: 12


Additional Information

The Dust of Appearance is a direct counter to invisible units. It comes with two charges and lays down an area of revealing dust that will reveal any invisible heroes inside of it. Though it doesn't last long, the effect will also prevent them from turning invisible again. It also reveals heroes hidden through abilities, such as the Weaver's Shukuchi, although any other effects will still apply.


  • Interrupts the user's channeling spells upon using.
  • Places a debuff on enemies (including not invisible ones) within the radius upon cast. Leaving or entering the area afterwards has no effect.
  • Can place the debuff on invulnerable units, but not on hidden units or on wards.
  • Only slows units when they actually are invisible.

Just pointing this out for newer players don't grab Dust if you're going to counter ward. I made a very horrible mistake by buying this haha.
