DotA2 Skill: Kraken Shell

Kraken Shell

Casting Method:Passive
Creates a thick armor shell that reduces physical damage and removes negative buffs when damage received reaches a critical threshold. Kraken Shell does not stack with items that provide Damage Block.

Damage Reduction: 12 / 24 / 36 / 48
Damage Threshold: 600 / 550 / 500 / 450
Additional Information
Claddish navymen tell tales of a mighty sea-faring beast that suffered spear and sword but continued to lay waste to the fleet.

  • Does not prevent magical damage.
  • The damage reduction is always on and is not connected to the damage treshold for buff removal.
  • Only damage from player owned sources is counted towards buff removal.
  • Damage counter for buff removal resets when Tidehunter doesn't take player based damage for 6 seconds.
  • Buff removal occurs every 600 / 550 / 500 / 450 damage taken(after reductions).
  • Kraken Shell will remove almost all disables, even Dismember, Fiend's Grip, and more.
  • Kraken Shell won't remove certain debuffs, such as Bloodrage, Fury Swipes, Doom, Maledict.

Before armor reduction. Like Stout Shield.

Creates a thick armor shell around Leviathan that protects him against attacks. Additionally, this ability removes negative buffs when he has taken significant damage.
