Item Details

Ghost Scepter

+5 Strength
+5 Agility
+5 Intelligence

Active: Ghost Form

Enter ghost form and become unable to attack or be attacked, but take 40% extra magic damage. Using a Teleport Scroll dispels Ghost Form.

Magic Resistance Reduction: 40%
Duration: 4


Additional Information

Can be cast while spell immune with no effect, wasting the cooldown. Buff is dispelled by spell immunity.

Imbues the wielder with a ghostly presence, allowing them to evade physical damage.

Usually a late game item, it protects you from being auto attacked, while also preventing you from attacking. It also causes you to take additional magic damage. Useful for support casters who can't take many hits; it can let you get off a few spells and then run while enemies try to hit you. Otherwise, it's a very situational weapon that can be used to build up to an Ethereal Blade.


  • Interrupts the user's channeling spells upon cast.
  • 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.
  • Shares cooldown with Ethereal Blade.

The HoN equivalent is used to shut down strong Phys nukes like Swiftblades ult. Its a good item no doubt, but very very situational.

This item is such a situational one, considering it makes sspeels hit like a truck. Any good chen should have already used test of faith to save you without the need of this

Ghost form and test of faith from chen can save you if your lucky.
