Additional Information
  • Using items doesn't trigger Overload.
  • The slow and damage are applied to all enemy units within the radius around the attacked target.
  • The charge is released upon successfully hitting a target. If the attack misses or is disjointed, nothing will happen.
  • Each attack checks for the buff on Storm Spirit upon successfully hitting the target. If the buff is present, the charge will be released.
  • This means when Storm Spirit gains the buff while an attack projectile is flying, that attack will still release the charge when it hits.
  • Attacking buildings or allies does not release the charge, however attacking wards does.

Storm Spirit becomes overloaded with electrical energy whenever he casts a spell. The charge is released on his next attack as an electrical burst, dealing damage and slowing nearby units.
