DotA2 Skill: Demonic Purge

Demonic Purge

Casting Method:Active
Targetting Method:Unit
Allowed Targets:Enemy unit
Purges the target enemy unit, removing positive buffs, and slowing the target for the duration. The unit slowly regains its movement speed until the end of the duration, upon which damage is dealt. Units under the effect of Disruption can still be affected by Demonic Purge. Continuously dispels the target.

Range: 800
Duration: 7
Damage: 200 / 300 / 400
Mana Cost: 200 Cooldown Time: 70
Additional Information
Damage is blocked but slow and buffs removal are not.

Can be Improved by Aghanim's Scepter (* shows the improved values). Cooldown is removed, replaced with two charges that replenish every 40 seconds.

Once Shadow Demon no longer has any need for his collected cultist, he releases it from its subservience - and its life.

  • Can be cast on cycloned units.
  • When upgraded with Aghanim's Scepter, cooldown for both charges is counted in sequence, not independently.
  • 40 seconds: 1 charge ready
  • 80 seconds: 2 charges ready
  • Buff removal.
  • The damage can affect a unit affected by Disruption.
  • Unlike a Diffusal Blade Purge, no extra damage is done to illusions or summons.
