Increases rotating glaive count by 1 and damage on collision by 20%.
Mana Cost: 75 Cooldown Time: 30
Additional Information
Carefully sharpened, Luna's boomerang-like weapon cuts a wide swath through enemy numbers.

  • Moon Glaives took precedence over the following: Feedback ( Diffusal Blade) and Cold Attack ( Eye of Skadi) in WC3 DotA. In Dota 2, the attack modifier is applied to the first target.
  • Total number of targets is 2 / 3 / 4 / 6. (including the main target that player attacked).
  • Can bounce back to the same units if it already hit all other units nearby. At max level of the ability, the same unit can be hit 3 times at maximum.
  • Unlike in the original DotA, this ability works with Mjollnir in Dota 2. The tech restraints that prevented it from working no longer exist.
  • Deals a grand total of 65% / 107% / 135% / 164% extra physical damage assuming max bounces per level.
  • Works when denying allied units.
  • Only the initial glaive projectile can be evaded. Bounces cannot.
