DotA2 Skill: Curse of Avernus

Curse of Avernus

Casting Method:Passive
Slows the targets you attack by 10% / 15% / 20% / 25% for 4 seconds. If a target gets hit 4 times, they become affected by a chilling curse causing them to be silenced and slowed by 30% / 40% / 50% / 60% for 4 seconds. All heroes that attack the target by the duration of the curse will receive a 40 / 60 / 80 / 100 attack speed bonus.
Additional Information
The curse that slows an enemy, speeds an ally.

  • The initial debuff's duration gets refreshed on each hit. The 4 hits do not all require to happen within 4 seconds.
  • When the initial debuff's counter reaches 4, it gets removed and replaced by the curse debuff.
  • The attack speed buff is granted upon successfully landing an attack on the cursed target. This means missed attacks do not grant the buff.
  • The attack speed buff only works when attacking cursed targets. When executing an attack against a unit that is not cursed, the buff gets removed.
  • The speed buff is only granted to allied heroes, illusions and clones. Non-hero units do not get the buff. The ability treats creep-heroes* as creeps.
  • The debuffs can be placed on buildings.
*The following units are considered creep-heroes: Earth, Familiar, Fire, Golem, Spirit Bear and Storm.


Spell Immunity:
  • Does not pierce spell immunity.
  • The attack speed buff is dispellable with any dispel.
  • The debuffs are dispellable with any dispel.
  • Can be used by illusions.
  • Disables placing the initial debuff, or increasing its counter. Does not prevent the attack speed buff.
