DotA2 Skill: Life Drain

Life Drain

Casting Method:Active
Targetting Method:Unit
Allowed Targets:Enemy Units
While channelling Life Drain, Pugna siphons HP from the target enemy unit. If Pugna has full HP, and the target is a Hero, Life Drain will restore mana instead. When cast on an ally, Pugna will drain his own health into his ally. Grants True Sight over the target. Lasts 10 seconds. Upgradable by Aghanim's Scepter.

Range: 900
Duration: 10
Health Drained Per Second: 150 / 225 / 300
Mana Cost: 125 / 175 / 225 Cooldown Time: 22 (0*)
Additional Information
Can be targeted on magic immune unit, but target takes no damage and Pugna is not healed.

Can be Improved by Aghanim's Scepter (* shows the improved values). Sets cooldown time to zero.

Pugna has truly become more powerful than even the grandmaster of Oblivion.

  • HP drained depends on the actual damage dealt, so Decrepify increases it and spell reduction reduces it.
  • Will continue to drain while target stays within 1100 range of Pugna and is within Pugna's vision range.
  • If the target is an illusion it's destroyed on the first damage tick.
  • The mana-restoring effect only applies when targeting heroes.
  • Will effectively deal 180 / 240 / 300 (270 /360 / 450*) damage per second to decrepified units.
  • Has a 100 range break buffer (break range 900)

Update needed. This can now be targeted on allies and will drain pugna's health while healing the ally.

Pugna summons a very powerful draining magic that absorbs the life essence of an enemy unit. Lasts 9 seconds.
