DotA2 Skill: Shadow Wave

Shadow Wave

Casting Method:Active
Allowed Targets:Allied Units / Enemy Units
Shadow Wave heals several allies, which in turn cause damage equal to their healing in a small area around them. Dazzle is always healed by Shadow Wave, and it does not count toward the number of targets.

Range: 800
Damage Radius: 185
Bounce Radius: 475
Number of Targets: 3 / 4 / 5 / 6
Damage/Heal: 85 / 105 / 125 / 145

Dazzle can target enemies with Shadow Wave to create an Inverse Shadow Wave. The inverse wave bounces amongst enemies, dealing damage to them and healing any nearby allied units for 150% the healing and damage values of Shadow Wave. Dazzle will also perform an attack on any enemy hit by the Inverse Shadow Wave.
Mana Cost: 75 Cooldown Time: 12 / 11 / 10 / 9
Additional Information
While it is a simplistic and routine rite among Shadow Priests, the Shadow Wave is also the most critical for success.

  • Prioritizes allied heroes over creeps.
  • If enemies are near multiple allied units affected by Shadow Wave, they can take multiple instances of damage.
  • Can deal a maximum of 240 / 400 / 600 / 840 damage (Excludes Dazzle as a source of damage).

Sends forth a Shadow Wave to heal a few units. Healed units also damage a small area around them for the same amount.
