Item Details

Scythe of Vyse

+10 Strength
+10 Agility
+35 Intelligence
+150% Mana Regeneration

Active: Hex

Turns a target unit into a harmless critter for 3.5 seconds. Destroys illusions.

Cast Range: 800
Duration: 3.5


Additional Information

The most guarded relic among the cult of Vyse, it is the most coveted weapon among magi.

One Scythe of Vyse grants a total of 190 health, 0.3 health regeneration, 1.4 armor, 10 attack speed, 455 mana, 3.5 mana regeneration and 10 (35 to intelligence heroes) attack damage.


  • Applies a Hex on the target, setting its base movement speed to 140 and muting it.
  • Because hex changes base move speed and doesn't actually apply a slow, all speed effects are calculated using the 140 base speed.
  • For example:
  • a hexed unit with no speed bonuses has 140 move speed
  • a hexed unit with +10% from Yasha has 154[/color] move speed
  • a hexed unit with +50 from Boots of Speed has 190[/color] move speed
  • a hexed unit with both Boots of Speed and Yasha has 209 move speed
  • Hex instantly destroys illusions, but not summoned units.
  • Scythe of Vyse hex transforms the target into a pig.

Everything is up to date.

Additional notes:
Boots stack with the base movement speed and will provide total of 190 movespeed.
Since it only changes the base movement speed and doesn't slow in that sense, all speed increasing effects apply.
Purgeable by diffusal blade.
I think the unit hexed still gains exp, if i am not wrong.
The dota2 tooltip doesnt say anything of that sort.
edit: Disable exp. confirmed
Further, there are still some skills that have effect: those who trigger as Counter Helix of Axe or Craggy Exterior of Tiny; those that can not be silenced as Reincarnation of Skeleton King; some passives as Spell Shield of Anti Mage or Marksmanship of Drow; abilities that can be triggered on/off as Rot of Pudge or Pulse Nova of Leshrac. Hex also disables the effect of the gem and the burning damage of the radiance .

I prefer to call it Sheepstick to be honest from my glory days on HoN. I think I might start calling it Pigstick :) lol

You'd rather call it Guinsoo's Scythe of Vyse than just Scythe of Vyse?

I still call it by the old name.
