Blocked completely when target is the holder. Not blocked for secondary targets.

Windranger's variety of bow skills includes an arrow with thick ropes attached to encumber any escaping target.

  • Shackleshot travels at a speed of 1650. and cannot be disjointed.
  • The projectile searches for enemies or trees within 23° at the opposite side of the target from where Shackleshot was cast from.
  • This means when Windranger blinked away after cast, it will latch based on the cast location, not her current location.
  • Shackleshot always prioritizes units over trees.
  • If the target gets shackled to a unit, both of them are stunned for the full duration.
  • The stun persists, even when the primary or the secondary unit or tree die earlier.
  • The stun also persists, when one of the target gets freed from the stun earlier.
  • When the primary target dies before the shackle reaches it, it still can latch to a secondary unit and stun it.
  • Can be cast on, but cannot latch on ancient creeps, Roshan, Warlock's Golem and the Primal Split spirits.
  • Can latch on invisible units, units in the Fog of War and the trees from Sprout.
