Blocked completely when casted on Linken's holder. Not blocked for secondary targets.

An ancient incantation that links the vital energies of multiple lifeforms into one collective body.

  • Shared damage is the same damage type as the source of the damage.
  • This means physical damage is spread as physical damage, magical damage as magical and pure damage as pure.
  • Because of that, the shared damage does interact with every on-damage effect like disabling Blink Dagger.
  • Does not spread the health cost of spells, the negative regeneration from Heartstopper Aura and the damage caused by itself.
  • Does also not spread the damage from instantly killing effects like Culling Blade, Ice Blast, Death Pact, Diffusal Blade, Hand of Midas.
  • The distance between the bonded units doesn't matter. Once bonded, they will always spread or receive the spread damage.
  • Upon cast, the spell searches for visible enemy units within 700 of the cast target and binds them instantly together.
  • Links the closest units to the initial target, instead of randomly choosing targets within the search radius.
  • The damage caused by Fatal Bonds does not cause aggro. Bonded Neutral creeps will not react on the damage.
  • Increases the total damage output of every damage by 50% / 75% / 100% / 125% when then maximum amount of units is bonded.
  • Successive casts of Fatal Bonds fully stack and work fully independent from each other.
