Additional Information

Can target self while spell immune. Can not target any other spell immune unit.

Allows you to manipulate others, for good or evil.


  • Double clicking the item casts it on self.
  • Pushes the target at a speed of 1500.
  • The target is not disabled during the push, so it still can cast spells or items, attack and turn during the push.
  • It also means that it won't cancel channeling spells on the target.
  • However, it does cancel the user's channeling spells upon cast, since it's a single target spell. It's not the push itself canceling them.
  • Does not push units affected by a Chronosphere, Black Hole, Duel, or an enemy Kinetic Field.
  • Can target any unit, except for wards and buildings. It can also push a Homing Missile.
  • Can force units over impassable terrain. Trees within 100 radius around the pushed target get destroyed during the push.
  • Can be cast on Roshan but with no effect, since Roshan is immune to forced movement.
