  • If the target has allies or neutral creeps within the search radius, the spell temporarily stops slowing and damaging the target, until it is alone again.
  • Checks for enemies and neutrals in 0.5 second intervals, beginning instantly upon cast. The slow updates based on the result of the checks.
  • Also deals damage in the same intervals, based on the checks, dealing 7.5 / 15 / 22.5 / 30 damage, resulting in 13 possible instances.
  • While Flux is muted, the particle effects on the target vanish, with only a red glow remaining on the unit, indicating the debuff is still there.
  • Nearby buildings, wards and hidden units* are ignored and do not mute the effects. Invulnerable units, however, are not ignored.
  • Can deal up to 97.5 / 195 / 292.5 / 390 damage to the target if all instances are applied (before reductions).
  • Multiple casts on the same target fully stack, with all instances working independently from each other.
*The following abilities turn the target hidden: Assimilate, Astral Imprisonment, Disruption, Doppelganger, Enchant Remnant, Infest, Manta Style, Mirror Image, Phantasm, Phase Shift, Primal Split, Snowball, Supernova and Tricks of the Trade.
