Additional Information

A glowing jewel formed out of assorted parts that somehow fit together perfectly.

Illusions provide the aura, but do not benefit from it.


  • Interrupts the user's channeling spells upon cast.
  • Affects every allied unit, including invulnerable units, siege creeps and illusions, exluding wards and buildings.
  • Does not affect units who have been affected by Restore in the last 25 seconds.
  • This is not indicated anywhere. The armor bonus lasts 25 seconds, but since it is purgeable, it's not always reliable.
  • Restore bonus armor does not stack with the armor gained from Buckler and Crimson Guard active abilities.
  • Stacks with all other sources of flat health regeneration, except with Regeneration Aura from multiple Mekansms.
  • The flat health regen bonus is not considered by percentage health regeneration increases.
  • Regenerates up to 240 health in one minute.
  • Does not affect wards, buildings and invulnerable units.
  • The aura's buff lingers for 0.5 seconds.
