DotA2 Skill: Caustic Finale

Caustic Finale

Casting Method:Passive
Allowed Targets:Enemy Units
Sand King's attacks inject a venom that causes enemy units to move more slowly and to violently explode when it dies.

Explode Radius: 500
Base Damage: 50 / 70 / 90 / 110
Max Health Damage: 10% / 14% / 18% / 22%
Move Slow: 14% / 18% / 22% / 26%
Additional Information
An injection from Crixalis makes one brittle and as dry as the arid wastes, subject to implosive demise.

  • Exploding units leave no corpse.
  • Mechanical units take damage if in radius, the debuff however does not apply to them.
  • Does not work on denies (the buff is not placed on allied units).
  • Cannot be dispelled by anything.
  • Doesn't trigger if the unit affected gets denied.

This skill is good, but it don't fits Sand King. It would be better in a hero (a carry) that needs to flash farm.

It's kinda weird to give Ancient Apparition the Caustic Finale, and he needs the slow and magical damage amplifying badly.

But wouldnt Ice Vortex be better since epicenter is magical and the slow compliments that from epicenter's?

1. Burrowstrike multiple enemy heroes.
2.Cast Acid Spray.
3.Use Epicenter
4.Teamwipe! ( 30% slow, reduced armor, DoT and how badass Sand King are )

Agree with mrLocket

Completely overkill skill, since Sand Storm is already enough for farming creep waves...

What's the point of having 2 farming skills on a support who hardly needs any farm after he gets his blink?

Only hope to make this skill useful is to try to proc it in teamfights.

Or to farm a LOT. Gotta get dat Abyssal Blade xD

That's my thought too, switch this skill with Alchemist's Acid Spray is going to be really awesome.

Needs a rework?

Each of the Sand King's attacks injects a deadly venom that causes the target to explode violently on death, dealing damage in an area.
