DotA2 Skill: Burrow


Casting Method:Active
Targetting Method:No Target
Allowed Targets:Self
Nyx Assassin buries himself beneath the battlefield over a short duration. Once burrowed, Spiked Carapace instantly stuns nearby enemies when cast, the range of Mind Flare and Impale is increased, and Impale's cooldown is decreased. While burrowed, Nyx Assassin is stationary, unable to attack, and invisible. Nyx gains damage reduction from all damage sources.

Max Health/Mana Regenerated per Second: 1%
Incoming Damage Reduction: 50%
Impale Cast/Travel Range Increase: 525
Impale Cooldown Reduction: 7
Mind Flare Cast Range Increase: 400
Spiked Carapace Radius: 300
Additional Information
Some castes of Zealot scarab are known to create small burrows to lie in wait, ready to ambush their prey.

  • Requires Aghanim's Scepter to be unlocked.
  • Turns Nyx Assassin invisible and disarms and roots him, preventing moving and attack and using Blink Dagger.
  • Burrow lasts until unburrowing or using Vendetta.
  • Nyx Assassin can still be moved by spells and can still teleport while burrowed, without getting unburrowed.
