Dispel Radius: 1025
Fade Time: 0
Move Speed Bonus: 15%
Duration: 45


Additional Information

Though it can't be used for daring escapes or to gain the upper hand in the middle of combat, Smoke of Deceit plays a cunning role against a well-warded team. The added mobility makes it easy to set up surprise attacks or to slip behind enemies without being spotted. However, if a hero hidden with Smoke of Deceit comes too close to an enemy hero or building, the effect ends, meaning you should keep your distance. Smoke of Deceit is especially useful to get to Roshan undetected as many players ward the surrounding area.

Smoke of Deceit is limited to a stock of 3 in the store. The stock takes 7 minutes to replenish.

Stacks with itself in inventory.

Can be used by a Courier.


  • Interrupts the user's channeling spells upon using.
  • Affected unit can cast spells and use items while invisible without breaking it. However, attacking does break it.
  • When attacking, the invisibility is lost upon reaching the attack point, even when the attack misses.
  • Invisible units can pick up and drop items without breaking the invisibility.
  • True Sight can not detect units affected by Smoke of Deceit. The only exception is Chronosphere.
  • Only affects player controlled units. Does not affect invulnerable allies, however, invulnerable enemy heroes or towers dispel it.
  • The effect is only dispelled when approaching an enemy hero (excluding illusions)or a tower.
