Grimstroke shrouds an allied unit in ink, increasing its movement speed. Enemies in range of the allied unit are damaged with inky tendrils over time. After 2.5 seconds it triggers, applying damage and stun in an area around the unit in proportion to the duration it hit any hero.

Mana Cost: 120 / 130 / 140 / 150 Cooldown Time: 27 / 24 / 21 / 18
Additional Information
Now that the rise of the ink tide no longer threatens to overwhelm Grimstroke, its tendrils of power are never far from his hand.
