DotA2 Skill: Quill Spray

Quill Spray

Radius: 700
Duration: 14
Base Damage: 25 / 45 / 65 / 85
Stack Damage: 28 / 20 / 32 / 34
Damage Cap: 500
Mana Cost: 35 Cooldown Time: 3
Additional Information
An enforcer's honor can be a prickly thing. So can his quills.

  • Deals damage as it quickly expands outwards. (at 2400 speed)
  • Quill Spray damage is not reduced by damage block abilities. (such as Vanguard, Kraken Shell.)
  • Stacks are independent, not refreshing, which means that normally Bristleback can deal at most (14 seconds duration / 3 seconds cooldown) 120 bonus damage. To reach the damage cap, additional Quill Sprays from Bristleback passive are needed.
  • The stacks cannot be removed by Purge or other buff removing abilities such as Kraken Shell.
  • 13 / 12 / 12 / 11 stacks are required to reach the 450 damage cap, which so require 9 / 8 / 8 / 7 sprays from Bristleback (which takes 2500 / 2250 / 2250 / 2000 damage taken from the rear), since only 4 stacks can be achieved with Quill Spray alone.
  • Has an instant cast time.
