Additional Information

Said to have belonged to a goddess, today it retains much of its former power.

One Shiva's Guard grants a total of 15 armor, 390 mana and 1.2 mana regeneration (and 30 attack damage for intelligence heroes).


  • Does not interrupt the owner's channeling spells upon cast.
  • The blast spreads at a speed of 350.
  • The area of effect is centered around the owner, so when moving, the radius moves along.
  • The blast is not a ring. It affects every unit between the blast's edge and the caster.
  • This means it is not possible to avoid the blast by blinking towards the caster.
  • Provides 800 radius flying vision, following the caster and leaving a trail of vision which lasts for 2 seconds.
  • Freezing Auras from multiple Shiva's Gaurds don't stack.
  • The aura's debuff lingers for 0.5 seconds.
  • The status buff icon only shows up when the affected unit has vision over the source.

Shiva is an indian god, so why is it said that it belonged to a goddess?

I don't think the Shiva from the DotA world is related to the deity, but to the Shiva from the DotA lore instead.
