Additional Information
Spell immune units are still revealed by the true sight.

When directly targeting the holder, spell is completely blocked. When targeting ground, vision and true sight are still provided, damage and stun are blocked.

A shocking punishment for rebellious heathen.

  • The mini-stun lasts for 0.2 seconds.
  • When cast on the ground with no heroes within 375 radius will still provide the 750 range flying vision and true sight.
  • The flying vision and true sight last for 4.5 seconds, though the true sight is provided by an aura from which the effects linger for 0.5 seconds.
  • Searches for enemy heroes, illusions, Lone Druid's Summon Spirit Bear, Warlock's Golem or the Primal Split spirits when targeting ground. Whichever is closest will get hit.
  • In order to hit a non-hero unit, it must be directly targeted.
  • Plays some lightning particles and a sound effect during the cast time, which are visible and audible to everyone.
