DotA2 Skill: Primal Split

Primal Split

Casting Method:Active
Targetting Method:Instant
Splits Brewmaster into elements, forming 4 specialized warriors, adept at survival, each with their own abilities. If any of them survive until the end of their summoned timer, the Brewmaster is reborn.

Duration: 16 / 18 / 20
Earth Brewling HP: 1400 / 2300 / 3200
Storm Brewling HP: 1000 / 1500 / 2000
Fire Brewling HP: 1300 / 1450 / 1600
Void Brewling HP: 1200 / 1500 / 1800

Increases Primal Split duration by 12 seconds and allows it to be cancelled early.
Mana Cost: 125 / 150 / 175 Cooldown Time: 140 / 130 / 120
Additional Information
It isn't clear whether Mangix is consciously aware of his potent bond with nature, as it often occurs in the midst of a drunken stupor.

  • When the spell ends, the Brewmaster takes Earth's place. If Earth is dead he takes Storm's place, and if Storm is dead he takes Fire's place. Brewmaster will return with the HP he had before Primal Split was activated.
  • All of the warriors possess the Resistant Skin passive ability. Abilities that have separate effects for heroes and creeps (such as Enchantress's Enchant) will use the Hero effects when targeting the warriors. Abilities that affect only creeps (such as Doom Bringer's Devour) or only Heroes (such as Witch Doctor's Death Ward) will not affect the warriors.
  • Warriors are not considered summons. Thus, it does not take summon bonus damage.
  • If Brewmaster is affected by Soul Catcher before using Primal Split, all warriors will spawn with Soul Catcher debuff on them.
  • The Earth warrior has every aura of the Brewmaster (Such as Vladmir's Offering or Assault Cuirass). If the Earth warrior dies, the auras will move to Storm, then Fire. This is true for all items with an area of effect (such as Gem of True Sight or Drum of Endurance).
  • The Warriors are affected by Enigma's Black Hole.
  • Fire Spirit has phasing movement.

Can also be used to evade stuns during the transformation time.

Is the strength of the Primal Split warriors determined by Brewmaster's Strength, Agility and Intelligence stats?

Edit: strength of Primal Split warriors is a set amount.
